Was thinking we should be able to choose our difficulty in ranked matches…
Can’t get better if I can only play with equal or lesser players.
Of course the game would know your rank, so that players could be put in their match of chosen difficulty, but really no need to have ranking in the game, especially now that we can’t see anyone’s rank.
edit for clarity:
delete the bronze, silver, gold, onyx and master badges from players to see, but keep them internally.
then allow everyone to choose between beginner, intermediate, advanced and insane in each game mode
i imagine they could implement the following rules:
those who’re ranked internally as master can only play in insane, and same for those ranked bronze, beginner only
those who qualify for intermediate and advanced can play in their respective level, or they can enter advanced and master at their own peril
i think at the beginning of the season, everyone should have to do solo placement matches, but more than 5, so that the system can really nail down which level you’re locked into
ultimately, i think it’s a big distraction having badges and seeing them go up and down each match and having people stop playing just cos they reach a level and don’t want to lose it
it’s also bad that players simply team up and get fake ranks… steamrolling through solo players with your squad of five does not mean you’re as good as you think… we saw a lot of “diamond masters” in gears 4 who when playing solo, got destroyed … so playing teams would only be permitted after placing
