However, I hope you will be successfully retaining Platinum status with the reduced requirements, referring to the Terms of your match!
If I'm not wrong regular QRPC Platinum members had their 540 Qpoints threshold extended from one to two years.

Yes, you are right, he status was extended by one year, but the points were not frozen. I did had 1400 points last year jan, so I did requalify till 2021 anyway. Now the points are gone and I have to requalify with the full 540 points by November this year, the granted free extension did not help me. The free extension of the status was certainly hepful for many whose status was due to expire last year. However, thats life ;-)
Hope you will be successfully!

I'm confused with this status match. They extended our status until end of 2021, but our tracking period ended in June. So now we need to earn the full amount of points from June to 2021 to maintain Platinum?

And still they never sent a membership card, saying that they stopped because of Covid?

I'm not a status matcher, but my Gold status was renewed as normal (1 year) today. No extension to December.

As a status matcher I'm in the same boat. I have achieved 300 Qpoints from 7 June 2020 till 6 June 2021 ( original match period ) so I need to maintain QRPC Platinum another year until 6 June 2022, however, the QR website shows my status was only extended until 31 December 2021 and that I need to obtain 540 Qpoints until 31 December 2021 with only those flown within 1 January - 31 December 2021 counted on the counter.

QR's communication up till now isn't fabulous regarding the match and the extension.
I hope they communicate with affected members soon as I would book some international long-haul trips for Q3 & Q4 2021 soon and this would have effect on my airline choice.

Renewed with reaching the required points or renewed without reaching the required points?

I think they could extend a bit longer than just 31DEC2021, even when not meeting 540 treshold. I got marched QR Plat but due to the restrictions I have not taken a single flight yet on them.

Hopefully that's the answer then.
Having gained/grabbed FFers in a competitive market , QR are unlikely to relinquish them.

Indeed, Still waiting to see when/if QR extends our status. I'm happy to try to earn my place in a normal travel year. However, this has still been anything but normal. As an example, QR wants close to 900 dollars for a 50 minute economy seat flight from DOH-DXB. Absolutely NUTS!!!!!!
