It appears that there is a bug that if someone above me changes position to rank up or down, it triggers the flash on the screen that I have ranked up or down, even though I have not changed position. This has only started recently.

It's not only triggered by your personal rank but also by your team's rank. Maybe a teammate ranked your team up?

No change to the team rank either. I only have one team mate, so that's easy to monitor.

That one is quite old and I never found out why this happens. It even happens if you are not in a team. But only sometimes, about once per hour in average or so.

If you or your team ranks or is ranked in Evolver the message will show, even if you are playing your solo.

I never knew this. Are you really sure this is true?

Yes I am sure. It happened to me sometimes, too. One time I runned just one client and I knowed my rank. It showed rank up while i was playing with a new alignement and had a high negative score. I play only solos and I have no teammates because I'm in no group.
