Hi Gears players,
I so agree. I really get that the good players value the competition and the rank and getting what is earned with it, but as sonic kinda pints out you know who really loses the lower ranks. we saw that in season 7 gears 4 and now in 5. Add to this the ridiculous ping flux and sponging . It really destroys the lower real ranked players. They are the base and they are needed.
I think a true good player that is high ranked should be awarded, but i also think that the lower ranks should not be a punching bag to inflated K/D.
I finished my 5 games on KOTH, Guardian and TDM. KOTH and Guardian ended in silver 1 and TDM silver 2. Most likely i never be a Onyx player so my goal is Gold. Of course if high ranks are now in my matchmaking pool that dream is gone…smile
I think you should never lose rank. I think you need to get credit for support as well as K/D. If they did this maybe they could mix the ranks a bit better?
I had an experiences in 4 season seven. match all onxy and diamonds. i was low silver 1 player or 2 not sure but lest just say silver. My ping was 5 to 10 everyone else 80 to 100. i had so many things working against me. three guys on my team on open mic calling me stupid , garbage, trash telling me to uninstall the game plus other selective words. All because my K/D was not high like their. why would it be? Yes i only had 6 kills, but can you imagine a silver up against 2 diamond or 2 onyx. I stood no chance. I tried really hard. We lost and it was blamed on me. Really?
My point is: If those guys where so mad and its clear they out ranked me by 2 to 3 full ranking then what will happen if they are silver play other true silvers or vice versa.
All i really want it is to play ranked in my true peer group so its fun and i am not getting destroyed or call names for fin trying. I think there are some valid point on both sides of this thread.
