The rank system is working as expected. Your rank naturally falls from other people beating your scores, and the change is only reflected when your score recalculates (this can occur daily and usually only shows after achieving a new score).

If your overall accuracy goes down and you don't receive pp from the song that made your accuracy go down you go down in ranks I'm pretty sure.

Has been happening to me as well ...recently...but I think this is due to peppy getting rid of the inactive players.

Im at rank 12k-ish (at the moment), and playing a song in the next day (any song) makes me drop 100-200 ranks...this is probably because other people at the 12k rank are playing songs for pp too, and they eventually pass you. This update peppy made will make it more difficult to rank higher, due to more active people trying to get more pp every single day~!

There shouldn't be this much discussion about this. pp doesn't go down by playing in 99.99% of cases and certainly not for people with average pp ranks. Better rank usually means more pp even if you have worse accuracy, because you are beating players with higher pp counts. The amount of pp that people have in the maps you rank in changing can have an effect on your pp and losing even 1 pp can be a great effect on rank when you aren't very highly ranked.

The only way to lose pp is if you beat one of your scores that gave you pp with a higher score but LOWER ACCURACY or you lost ranks on songs that gave you pp( very common on newly ranked maps since for example rank 1 on a song should give more pp then a rank 100)

and Da Holy One when you beat a map and gain pp your rank is recalculated( other people beat your rank enough for that amount of pp you gained isn't enough to count for how much ranks you lost from them gaining more pp) and plus your top rank is a song that is unranked so that also might be a reason you lost PP since I believe unranked maps dont give pp

What NixXSkate said is right. You never lose PPs for a new play, be it good or bad.

Keep in mind that you're more likely to lose ranks when being low in the rankings (#10,000 can be considered as low in this context) because a lot of people are having a very similar amount of PPs. Hence if only one person beats you on a map, you can lose some PPs and fall in the global rankings.

Obviously a necroed thread.... but still worth posting in.

How much pp should a person expect from decay? I think I get -240 like 3 times a day (usually when greatly improve one of my scores). I can't be decaying that fast right?

It's possible.

The higher your rank the fewer ranks you will decay per day and you're not even 50k so that figure is believable to me.

Holy fuck I was about to go batshit at the amount of wrong posts in this thread until I saw the age. Wow blast from the past.

Yeah I almost thought the first reply was retarded

I think PP would be better if it gave a set PP for your play (as is), but then was multiplied based on map rank. Kinda a mix between PPv1 and PPv2.

I think it's kinda stupid that a music game punishes you like this for playing songs that you might like but you can only get C in. Thats like telling you to stop liking music, and focus on the game... Which is kinda usefull but also a little rough
