That sucks man...
...I thought I was screwed as I thought I had enough points in season two and skipped all of season 3. I then thankfully found out I was looking at the wrong set of numbers and played season 4 with an albeit gimped world ranking and regained 1st in the world early in season 5. At the end of four I think I had like 580 or so. Ended up winning every tournament in season 5 and ended up with about 1150 points.
