Significant Change to Altador Cup Standings

In today's editorial TNT have announced a significant change to both users who are flagged, and the overall standings page:

If flagged users are unable to advance to the next rank while playing in the Altador Cup, how are users who've already achieved all-star rank supposed to know whether they've been flagged if they are no longer advancing in rank anyway?
I'm glad this question came up because there have been many worries about something like this. So, there is a message that will show up if you have been flagged that looks like this: Your account is marked for suspicious activity and will not be able to actively rank up. If you feel that you've been wrongly affected by this, you are welcome to write into our team for further clarification. Thank you!
Also, there has been some modifications to the standings page which will make the day-to-day changes much more clear!

Those changes are now in effect on the standings page. The upshot of this? Teams are now granted a single point for each overall daily win they gain during the Round Robin, and these wins determine their standings - this is a similar scoring system to previous Round Robins and a departure from the bracket scoring system the standings page was previously using. This has had the immediate effect of dramatically changing the standings.

In other AC news, the TNT staff tournament has entered its second round! You have until Thursday to make your picks for round 2. Our updated staff tournament guide contains all the scores from round 1.

I haven't been flagged. This pleases me.

I don't have this message anywhere on the AC pages, but I am definitely still flagged.

Ouch my thumb hurts from too much playing. I hope I don't get flagged for this

No, wait...I'm definitely flagged.

I checked earlier to see how many games I needed to get to R4--14 of YYB. I played 23 games...and still need fourteen. (facepalm)

Oh my gosh, I love this clarification on the standings! This is much easier to understand.
