    Over the last month my flyweight rankings and overall rankings had started to drop more then ever before. At first I figured it was because I was on a decent losing streak but it still seemed my rankings were dropping quite a bit. A little over a month ago I had got to my highest ranking ever which was 46th in the flyweight division. But since then I’ve dropped dramatically and yesterday I went from 70th to 88th when the new rankings updates came out. Luckily for me I take snap shots of my rankings once a week because I’m sure like a lot of you I’m very prideful of my rankings and I work hard to compete with my fellow grinders to try and be the best I can be at DFS.
    So after this last drop which by the way came after a pretty successful week of cashing 5 out of 7 days I knew something was wrong. I looked at my snap shots and sure enough on June 6th I had 9,226 flyweight points but when I looked at my points total after yesterday’s update I had lost Around 1,700 points and my total now is 7,538.
    I also looked at my overall rankings points from June 6th which was at 10,653 and has dropped to 8,588 as of yesterday. Last I checked my overall points should never drop and somehow they’ve dropped by over 2,000 points since June. Keep in mind I’m talking about accumulated points and not my actual rankings as I understand if someone get more points then me I will drop in the rankings. But somehow my actual points have been dropping since June so not only have I not been receiving points for my cashes I’ve actually been losing points for over two months and I finally figured out how I’ve been dropping in the rankings so drastically over the last month. So I have sent the RG results team an email with the snapshots of my screen rankings and points to see why and how this happened. I haven’t heard back yet but I wanted to let everyone know who cares about their rankings to make sure and keep track of your points at least once a week. If anyone else has had this problem I’d like to hear about it. If I missed something I will surely come back here and admit my mistake but I don’t think that’s the case and it seems like kind of a big mistake to me.

    This statement is where most of the confusion probably lies.

    Your overall rankings score is a function of your last rolling 365 days worth of results, so your scores from over a year ago are falling off and being replaced by your most recent scores. If you aren’t keeping pace with the scores you had last year, you can start falling in overall points pretty quickly.

    This is especially true for cash game players right now. Last year at this time, we were counting all head-to-head and 50/50’s towards the rankings. Around October of last year, when DraftKings and FanDuel stopped allowing us to collect winning results automatically, we restricted our Rankings requirements to $10K+ prize pool tournaments only, so players who were benefiting from the types of tournaments we were including last year but no longer include this year are feeling the hardest effect right now.

    Thanks for the reply. So I can actually lose points in my overall rankings score and tiered rankings? I almost never play cash games anymore and I’ve actually rarely ever played them at anytime other then the first few weeks I started dfs. I always thought that my actual overall points would always increase with cashes and even if I stopped playing for months that if my overall points were at 10,000 then they would stay at 10,000 until I started to play again and add to that total. I understood it to be that for someone to pass me they would need to get past 10,000 points and that would cause me to drop in rankings. What’s happened now is I’ve cashed most of last week yet I had one of the biggest drops ever and my points went down again so it’s a bit confusing to me.

    No, this isn’t how our rankings work. We don’t want someone to have a huge score because they won some Live event in 2014, never play again, and still be uncatchable by people who are playing everyday.

    So, we have a recency component. Only your last 365 days worth of scores count.

    We have talked about having a page where you can see what games have recently fallen off from your overall scores along with other interesting statistics like your current highest score counting. This would add more transparency to why you are losing (or gaining!) ground along with adding more fun to the rankings overall.

    Ok I guess it makes since that since I was killing it the first two months of this baseball season while I was struggling the first two months last season that I climbed the rankings earlier this baseball season. Then last season in the second half I was doing really good plus playing more volume while this season I’ve struggled in the second half plus playing less volume that this would explain the big drop over the last month and a half. Would this be somewhat correct?
