So I haven't played Starcraft since February (when I was in bronze) and logged back in for the first time today. Since I hadn't played for so long and the ladder has been reset, I played my 5 placement matches. I beat the first two fairly easily, and just scraped by on the third .But on my fourth I was playing against IdrA who I recognised from one of the TNTS. He destroyed me pretty quickly. At this point I was thinking that I might get into silver and was pretty chuffed. Last match was against a platinum player who I'm sure would've quite easily beat me but he quit less than a minute in.
And suddenly I'm in Platinum getting my ass handed to me pretty much every game.
How long might it take till I get moved down to gold and have a fighting chance?
