Tournament vs Open games: why the difference in available rank pairings?

i have an issue with the scoring, how is it that when you play a single RANKED MATCH you can only go up or down 9, BUT when you play in a tournament you okay s higher +9 than your rank you still get dinged points?

no he’s asking about why ranked games between opponents of greater than 9 ranks difference are ok in tournaments but not in open challenges. Honestly though, I have no idea why that is the case :rofl:
