Qualifier System

Since patch 1.20 the qualifiers has been revamped. Qualifiers are now based on points earned rather than how many matches won. Naughty dog has said that the reason for this changed, is because its: ''allows your personal performance to impact your advancement to a much larger degree'' [4]. For Example: To pass from Gold I to Platinum III, for example, you need to earn at least 35 points over the course of 5 matches, instead of just winning at least 3 out of five matches.

Also now if you fail a qualifier series with negative points, you will be penalise by that many points.
