My concern with the belt system is a common one, it's broken for the most part and it's sometimes random. However, for some it does work, and it goes past black belt. I encountered a player with the red, jewel encrusted belt, with yellow lining, and a title under his name. The belt system, does it work? Does it not? For some?

Belts have always worked for me. The only problem I've had is that once, my belt did not show up before a match. I keep pretty good track of my belt rating and haven't noticed any discrepencies.
Here's what I have figured out:
What I have not figured out is exactly how much the ratings are affected by a match and what minor specifics determine the rating. I remember in one match, me and my 2v2 partner were Green belts and we faced Black belts. We lost, but it was a close match (we only lost by 2 kills), and our belt ratings actually went up 4 points. I'm not sure if kill counts or scores have anything to do with belt ratings, but it would make more sense if they did than if they were entirely based on who did better than you.
