This is the official thread to leave your feedback and comments about our Gears 4 Ranking System. Want to know how it works? Read our updated Gears 4 Ranking System Guide.
We hear your feedback on the Ranking System as it exists today, and the team are taking it with them as we think about the future with regards to the user experience. We have investigated many of the reports in this thread and verified our system is performing accurately (backed up with our broad range of data) but we understand the frustration the current opaqueness brings to the experience.
As a reminder:
Ranks exist to accurately measure your Skill against the population to create better matches
The goal of any good Ranking System is to accurately understand the Skill of it’s players in order to produce fairer higher-quality matchups.
Ranks do not follow the rules of linear progression, like getting your next Re-Up. As you play, you may find your Rank settles as it becomes accurate and – without a notable improvement in your performance against higher Skill opponents - progression becomes extremely difficult. This is intentional and integral to any Skill Rating system.
