This was my 3rd game after placement matches. 16,000 rank/skill points is Onyx 2 or 3 as per TC’s own metrics yet I am in Silver 3. It will most likely adjust to the correct rank after another game or 2, but I just thought it was kind of funny.
There are tons of issues with ranked right now, and i dont say that because my rank is low or im performing bad. My rank is now higher than it ever was in Gears 4. There are tons of reports of games with people getting no points and people gaining way too many points. Its more broken now post the update.
The rank system works well and let me explain. If your only going let’s say 10-7 in a match your not ranking up. You died alot and got such a low amount of kills. All games I play are consistent 15 kill plus games with minimal deaths. Let’s say you get 10 kills in one round and 5 in another. You wont get alot of points because you didnt do enough. And for the zero points it’s to keep you from losing points on a win. If you lose one round but win the match you wont gain nor lose points. It’s not my fault you cant rank up. I went 36-7 and got 0 points, pool only cause we lost one round. But I rather lose 0 points on a great match then lose a ■■■■ load.
