New ranking system idea

The ranking system should be based on individual skill. Period. Take a persons k/d, points per match, assist, etc and make an easy formula to give them appropriate rank. So easy a 5th grader could do it. It’s a no brainer, instead what you have is a system that entirely works on a win basis, that doesn’t take into consideration quitters, lag outs, and forget if your playing solo you can be the best gears player in the world and constantly have bad teammates and loose to a stacked team, yet never be ranked in the top. So how does that make any logical sense? If your going to keep the current system then change the name to winning ranking system not skill based.

Here’s a long discussion about this very thing;

As above.
