Your medals and your early wins in the lower ranks pre-determine how high your rank can be.

I have a rating of 3065 in rank 9 with 65 wins, 115 battles, 6 streak, and the following medals.

Silver Ace Trainer
Silver Great League
Silver Team GO Rocket
Bronze Ultra League

I don't even have a bronze Master League medal yet.

It's annoying that Niantic continue to obfuscate mechanics of their game, especially in important competitive features like the Go Battle League.

The fact that you can have an advantage by actively participating in battle outside of the Go Battle League prior to its release is just a bad idea altogether. There are players that are late joiners, those who have outright ignored PvP trainer battles, are unable to participate in gym or raid battles, etc.

they could fix it if they gave everyone the same rating based on wins/losses up to rank 7 and calculating from there. but that would be in a perfect world.

What and where are you basing this on?

Silver ace
Silver great
Gold ultra
Bronze rocket
173-92

Same for my girls account except it's something like 110 and 35.

Did you read it? There were people with stats who contradicted every argument on there.

And comparing my stats with the info leads me to believe that the info is indeed correct. I had moderate success in the first 2 weeks of GBL, maintaining a W/L of 1.5+ and by the time I got to rank 7, I was already in the early 3000's, even though most of my medals are silver.
