Yes. Back in the day, I was in the 70’s in platinum, I was in the top 75 percentile of levels on my team, and we were competetive - not a dominant force, but not a punching bag.
Here I am now, level 203, I am in the top 75 percentile of levels on my team, we are about to be forcefully removed from Sapphire (back to Platinum) where we will again be competitive - not dominant but not punching bags.
I know there was a major restructure, but for a the non-sandbagging teams, where your team belonged a year ago is roughly where it belongs now, even though our individual levels have increased. And as we all know, nothing has scaled up with our levels besides costs.
