UTR Rounding down?

Hi _______

Thanks so much for reaching out and for bringing your rating to our attention.

We recently updated the way by which we round players ratings and they will now round down to the nearest whole number meaning that a 10.49 and 10.99 would both round down to a 10. We’ve made this change to make it easier for players to enter into level based divisions and engage in more competitive level-based play.”

Confirmed UTR now rounds down.

I dont understand the logic of rounding down. A 10.99 would have a more competitive match with an 11.5 than with a 10.0 plus most players hope to have at least one match with a higher ranked player to challenge themselves. UTR may have made the change so more people would buy the premium membership to see 2 digits...

On another note, your UTR ranking is probably closer to a 7.5 than a 7.0 but you cant tell because of the rounding unless you have the premium membership. My son has not played a match in 6 1/2 months that counts for UTR (he has hit with people every week) but his UTR has only gone down .14 though it will probably go down more when the last of his 4 best matches from the fall season '19 falls off

that is probably what it is, to increase their premium members, I am a member and still see info to the .xx
