I play in a squad 99% of the time but I fully admit the fact that the ranking system is nonsense in that it ranks you based on your team’s performance most of all. When I go solo, I’m often the top performer on the losing team and might even MVP the match, But, you’re telling me that the guy who went 2-10 on the winning team has a chance to move up, and I don’t even though I’m the “MVP”? Same goes for when my Diamond Master friends carry me in their squad and we beat people who were destroying me in the actual match. It hardly makes sense that the performance of others on your team determines your ability to rank.
I would encourage TC to abandon the format that they adopted from other games and be bold; create their own system that ranks you solely based on how YOU do as a player. This would not only benefit individuals, but the community as a whole because there would be less resentment toward ‘randoms’ who perform poorly.
