Seasonal Rank to Elo sync
Users may sync their Seasonal Rank up to their FACEIT Elo via the Game Settings page every 15 days.
This system cannot be reverted so it’s important to note the corresponding Elo (see the bottom of the page) to your Seasonal Rank before doing so.
Users may also not use this feature as a way of lowering their Elo on purpose and anyone found to be doing so shall receive a lengthy ban.
Simply press the ‘Update Ranking’ button to begin the process.
Press ‘Yes’ when you’re sure. If you’re met with an error then you either do not have a seasonal rank active or you’re on the incorrect game account.
