Are you playing on his account to increase his rank? If not, I don't think you have anything to worry about.PMS Calypso wrote:I understand boosting is an issue, but what happens to people who have friends who are significantly lower levels? My boyfriend is a gold if not worse and I am a champ or high onyx in all playlists. So you are saying if I want to play with my SO in his favorite playlists, I'm going to get banned? Please explain, because if that is the case, that's awful. :(
In the past, people have often tried to use the "carry" method to higher ranks by high-skill players playing with low-skilled players. With the advent of Trueskill2, however, this ranking method became much less effective. So even if that were your intent to carry your SO to higher ranks, it wouldn't work out because the system would be able to tell that he didn't belong at higher ranks. With that form of "manipulation" effectively gone, I don't think you'd get a ban for playing with him; just make sure you're not playing for him. And when you are playing with him, just play normally.
