Hello once again fellow GOW players! Thankyou for taking the time to read this. I have already voiced about the bad mech on the gameplay. So let’s dive right into the most frustrating , confusing, head scratching, can’t understand ranking system.
So at first I could not understand the tier system at first glance. And wondered why they just did not stick with the pure numbers. So I looked at the ranking explanation video everyone has seen. OK. So I did well playing with randoms most of the time I managed a respectable Gold 3. Now my total points where cut down by 2000 pts or so and in about 3 games went to a Silver 2 in the 80 /70%. Umm OK?? My hard work gone in an instant.
So I keep playing. And notice you don’t really get much game points anyone. And it really shows because they didn’t give much to begin with. Now it’s far less. So back in the grind. I’m playing against a full squad of 5 they seemed like they have been playing together since the 5th grade just getting a crazy beat down my team of randoms are incredibly awful. I’m super sweaty and mentally tired from trying to make something happen. In the end I finished top of my team 9kills 8 deaths k/d 1.00. Not bad considering the stacked squad working together and it’s very obvious.
My team had horribly negative k/d’s. No big deal I had a decent game let’s see my end of the game results! Not only did I not get 1 single point. I got negative 200pts!! So for being a team player for not quitting when the game is going horribly bad, Being the top player on my squad going positive k/d. I get kicked in the teeth. Negative points and demoted rank. So I look into it. No matter what you lose a round you get negative points. You lose the match you don’t get any points and get negative points. WOW. What a 360 change!!! Something is fishy here??
So it’s obvious they nerf the ranking system and didn’t mentioned it to anyone. Sure… no one is going to notice?? LOL So now there are serious questions to ask. Win or lose you should get points for you’re play in RANKED. That’s the whole point of it! If you play and get no points that is called UNRANKED. Of course if you did bad not everyone gets a trophy but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about!
So I hate playing non ranked matches there is no point and playing ranked matches gives me negative points then why play?? So if I’m in a bad ranked match losing horribly why not just quit? If my team is horrible and I had a 19kills 1 death game why should I not get points for the work earned? or worse get negative points? None of this makes any sense. And I do group up but not all the time I shouldn’t have too. In the end you should get all points earned in Ranked matches if you had a very positive game no matter what!! And with these new changes to the ranking system and not to announce it is very underhanded and low. I’m a gears fan but this is pure B.S. unless the ranking system changes dramatically and credits the player for their true player skills there is no point.
I will play it until the new Modern Warfare 4 comes out very soon. And if the ranking system isn’t changed by then, I will dump this game like a bad habit. Like when Destiny 2 tried to charge 60$ for a map pack! What is your take on it? Do you agree???
