Range shows the rank and the rating shows which ratings that specific rank will be allowed to play with. The +-1 Rank rule applies to all of the ranks except for Gold.

This can sometimes create confusion as players may think that they have not been matched with equally skilled enemies. Please be aware that the ranks inspected will also reflect demotions/promotions.
