Can someone explain to me how the ranking system works in this game? Like actually? Is it random? Because that’s what it feels like sometimes.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those people that believes it should be easy to rank up, but I genuinely just don’t understand the ranking system in this game.
I can have matches where I win both rounds and get a KD of 10+ in TDM, sometimes get MVP, and STILL go down in rank, even if the enemy team is favored. Why is this? I literally had 2 matches in a row where I went 16-2 and 22-2 and went down (or something like that KD). In my sincere opinion, if you win you should never go down. Maybe if your team is WAY better than the other team you shouldn’t go up, but to go DOWN, that literally makes 0 sense to me.
The irony of this is The Coalition said they would fix ranking after season 1. Mind you, I’ve played with people who have the champion lancer from season 1 who are god awful - sure we all have our bad matches, but even just watching them was concerning.
I can’t seem to push past a low Onyx 3, as I continue to get teammates who rush in and die rather than adapting to the other team. I don’t expect to win every match, and I don’t expect to have a good team every match or even do good myself every match, but when I’m playing solo, having a meh team is often sadly.
I’ve even had matches where my team and I come back from a 0-2 guardian, to 3-2 - and when I look at the match breakdown I went DOWN for winning 3 rounds but up for losing 2. So what’s the deal? I notice MVP is a huge factor generally, but what else if anything? In my sincere opinion, MVP shouldn’t be the only factor, but I think you see where I’m going with this.
I got put in Bronze for my placement matches at the beginning of the season despite being an Onyx last season, and winning/doing well all matches. Now I sit on the endless grind to achieve a higher rank.
Any thoughts from anyone?
