Gears 5 Main Ranking Thread

That’s thing man, once you’re not in Bronze/Silver you don’t lose points by the thousands. You probably could if you play exceptionally bad but you lose points relative to the rank/skill group you are in currently.

If you friend does well in whatever rank he’s at he could probably gain points by the thousands too. That doesn’t happen at higher ranks because it can’t happen. There isn’t thousands of points left when you get there…

It scales.

Could just be one really bad round too unfort. It’s honestly a lot rougher for Diamond players too because their expectations are much higher even though they lose less points for losses.

If you go like 15-3 and only gain 0-10 points afterward (pretty common in high skill games) but have one off game or round you could lose like 20-70 points.

That could be 2-7 games (or more) worth of progress lost just like in lower tiers. The only difference is the points aren’t lost in the thousands but they’re not gained that way anymore either.

The system is brutal and I can’t say a necessarily agree with it but it’s for sure working the way they intended it to.

For better or for worse.

Bronze and Silver are susceptible to huge point fluctuations due to the bulk of players occupying those ranks.

I always see posts about the 2000 pts losses but never the 2000 pts gains. simply showing the player that number is a mistake as it seems to aggravate the average player to the point of them threatening to quit the franchise.

sometimes more information isn’t the best option. I bet these point losses happened in Gears 4 all the time but now that the player sees the big MINUS 2000 POINTS result it’s making them upset.

G4 onyx3 here. Tough day :joy:

I was getting 1500-2000 point gains in Silver. Maybe people just arent posting about them.

Honestly, there is nothing wrong with this. The huge point swing is because the game is predicting him to perform at a higher level, and when he did he was rewarded.


Obviously you didn’t live up to the system’s expectations. The system was not only expecting you to perform better, but also find a cure for cancer and find a solution to world peace. Only after doing all that, would the system grant you 5pts in the end.

When the game thinks you are good it has high expectations. I find over time this ranking system is actually really good.

Had two guys quit on my team before second round of KOTH. I spent most of the second round just hiding and waiting for the game to be over. Got maybe three or four kills, died five or six times. Finished low score in the game. …GAINED 124 pts in the second round.

I mean I shouldn’t be penalized for quitters and I’d have been mad if I did so I don’t really know what I expected here but wtf even is this system?!

I would like the ranks to be shown, even at the end of the match like gears 4 did. I mean, at the moment it doesn’t really matter because even good players are at the bronze level so. But once (((IF))) the game and ranking system is fixed, I’d like to see the ranks of people that were in my team and the ranks of the opposite team. There’s something about being a a lower rank than the opposite team and thinking “holy ■■■■, I beat an onyx/diamond”


They kind of addressed this in one of their streams. That it was creating a lot of toxicity. Plus the Ranks aren’t always indicative of skill level.

I went to play 2v2 with a friend first game we won I got first on my team and the enemy got mvp by 200 points. The enemy team was favored double my team and I ended up losing 400 points. He next game I played I got mvp won they were favored and I still lost points

this is the second game that I won mvp.

Yes its still broke i won a tdm earlier with mvp and lost 3k points

Just keep playing takes a while before the system starts calculating right. Probably about 50 matches.

It’s no surprise to ANYONE that ranked is still broken, every match I play is either with kids that downloaded the game yesterday or maniacs that play 12 hours a day, is it really that hard to make each rank fight people with the same rank rather than matches with masters fighting silvers???

All i can say is play ffa. I feel the same way. I just find a mode that’s playable and right now it’s ffa. no bad teammates, frequent weapon swaps, lots of flanking/less lancering=actual fun in a gears game :roll_eyes:.

Lancer is a lot of fun with friends tbh. Wrecking ball teams of people who think CQC is the only skill, this is coming from me who basically only plays 2v2 gnasher XD

I think it’s really unnecessary to be lossing points in ranked because your team leaves early Ik tc are working on this but there most likely gonna wait until next operation to do this i sucks to see because people with master skins prob don’t even deserve it just saying

This screenshot is from a game that

A) I was second on my team, fourth in the game, over 10k pts
B) was considered an underdog in

I mean JFC I don’t even care about rank but I DO care when things are broken and stupid, and this is both broken and stupid.

P.S. I know I’m not saying anything we don’t already know but my god

Why is this a thing im playin against hardcore campers and won …basically lost 4 tiers because every stalemate was over 1500 points a round get outta here with that fix that asap! Game is so bad its not even funny i should be reimbursed for you’re stupid game costin me my time

Thank you for not punishing me for my poor performance. I promise to do better next time. I won’t let you down!
