Quitting Ranked

huehuehueh.5106huehuehueh.5106 Member ✭✭✭

Top 100 player, tired of pvp neglect, no meaningful rewards for time played, horrendous experience where players call you names regardless of performance. Forced to play games with random teamates in a team based game mode. If you agree just comment "Im Done" in this thread and we can see how many people share this opinion.

  • just need a few more shards to finish my legendary armor so i can go back to the red headed stepchild that is WvW but which i love playing. Sad that ANET makes it more than twice as fast to farm legendary armor in PvP than in WvW (for my rank at least). Go figure.

    But yeah as far as tryharding? i'm done....i'm just spamming games for the shards.

  • Why would I play? The game mode hasn't been enjoyable in a while, and now they even took away the rewards.

    My re-run of DA: Inquisition has been more entertaining, and that says a lot.

    ladder resets every some months, anyway. don't take your icon seriously. itll reset. just screen cap if you got plat/laddered for remembrance and get the gold and the grandmaster marks/ shards. but be sure to do your best and win so itll be faster.

  • Well see if the 2v2 system comes out in december if not.....im done as well...6 years and nothing has changed in pvp. Same old conquest. Its legacy gw1 was light years ahead of what gw2 pvp is.

  • Well lord, there was a bot in the top 100 last year, win traders and people who use the MOST obvious and useless hacks. I couldn't even finish my placements this year because I had an afk or a RQ or an intentional throw every. single. match. in my placements. I average at high gold low platinum and suddenly I'm going to end up in bottom teir bronze. That's absurd. I had a friend playing ranked that, in multiple matches, had their ENTIRE team go afk. It's ridiculous and not even worth the farm anymore.

    I haven't quit, but I'm too casual to matter. I just play a game here or there nowadays.

    What? Opponents whining at you in WvW is the best part. It's the teammates you don't have to hear from, thankfully.

  • There really shouldnt be rewards in ranked in a competitive game unless you win, but the removal of leaderboard titles completely removes the importance of the leaderboards. I can see why people have stoped ranked pvp.

  • Thankfully I got the top 250 title last season. Would have been nice to crack the top 100 title, but I got serious about it a bit too late in the season.

    This season has been pretty garbage, but I just play to maintain my plat badge. I finished my legendary pvp armor set last season as well, so keeping the badge is literally the only reason I queue ranked. It says a lot that I dread every new season, simply because I'd rather not have to work so often to maintain the badge.

  • Plz don't quit gw2... If you quit, existing players would get matched against unfair opponents and vent their frustration on teammates and more will quit...

    So my request... Plzzzzzz don't quit

    Them too I also don't hear much from either. Very rare I hear my opponents, rarer I hear toxic stuff from my allies.

    Also due to match manipulation/win trading...etc, im glad they removed leaderboards. Leaderboards meant little if anyone can cheat their way onto it. Devalued it greatly.

    Even if anet didn't care, it created a PVP platform... A base we can all use to have fun... I see the future where community manages pvp specs and approve or reject a certain buff or Nerf before it goes live... Kinda like Linux kernel... And it might be possible... If players still maintain a healthy environment and have pure fun in pvp, they don't mind anything... only the PVP exclusive black lion shop items sold by anet... And any developer with enough skills can sell skins and glimmering infusions for a limited time... So it becomes a virtual world for guild wars 2 fans ;) :)

    I totally agree about players not caring about things when having fun...
    That was me when we had team queue and then the game and company I supported since release essentially told me to kitten off and find another game to make room for solo players... I spoke against it with my wallet, havent spent a cent since.

    Im not Anet but clearly thier metrics are telling them that solo queue players are sustaining the mode and match making better than team queue ever did...

    if I remember right, PvP took a huge hit when grouchy? Left... I think that was his name anyway.... that guy not only cared about us but actually had some sway over the heads of dev teams.

    Doesn't matter if the end result is not in your team's favor... If you gave your 100% and push your limits even further, you'll earn your respect among enemy players... This might sound like a fantasy fairy/heroic tale... And the loss might feel frustrating... But the enemy team player whisper praising you for killing them even when the odds are not in your favor, that gives a sense of immense pride... But don't blame me if enemy players jump and dance on you after they Zerg you on unfair team fights :p ... But think about it... B)

    Do your best and separate yourself from garbages pulling the team down. it's rated game so it's assumed that you and others have the same skill level.

    Obvious sh1tters will show up in the course of the game.

    what respect lol? the Same ol players that look for drama/trash talk anyone who attempts to "get good"? This entire community and the devs are responsible for it's failure of a mode.

    1- Dev's not doing jack for the mode and responding well for the cheaters/asshats who abused things.

    2- Players that purposely continued to abuse anet "punish" system and it's negative impact toward a lot of the new players/up coming good players by mouthing anyone who might of made them feel "challenge" or "threaten"

    Great Game for PVE and Great combat system but.....that's all this game really offers. No actual "team" or "solo" player skill improvement unless you are lucky enough to play with a few of the best players/teams on a daily bases by either sucking them off or trashing talking with them on a daily lol.

    I meet A LOT of kitten good players and some Ex pro players who explained things to me and showed me the ropes. It was great, it was amazing however even they get tired of the same things over and over with the game and drama. I just wish we had better pro player role models that actually wanted the best for this game but.....that was never a thing at all.

    I too have left this clown fiesta circle dance behind. Pathetic excuses, neglect, the worst balance I have ever seen in a MMO, allowing the golden boy streamers to cheat at will with little punishment, and a general disregard for the player base.

    Playing this game mode is akin to being Sisyphus pushing a boulder up a hill and watching it roll back down, bound to Hell for all eternity.

    This. However , i think people are generally rude. Balancing is debatable, but GW2 pvp is similar to what exists in other games . Season system, end season rewards, rng rewards along season, matchmaking not being the best. I mean, just check any forum, it's going to be the same complaints every where.

    Game is 6 years old, has had many changed because people QQed. You can't blame devs for doing what seem to work in other games lately, it's not so bad for a 6 years old game.

    If we wanna debate on something, this could be on the season system making the whole leaderboard meaningless though

    seasoned leaderboard is not meaningless. i've seen consistent people in the top of ladders every season so they must be really good.

    consistency every cycle.

    and if you don't see them in the leaderboards anymore, you'll conclude that they either quit the game, busy in real life, accidentally chopped their fingers when they are prepping on cooking or died in accident or some disease.

    You know how it is for a few seasons though . Bottom players and top players pop close to their previous rank, nothing wrong. Rest in middle pop at a random spot between 1100 and 1600. If i was placed at 1700 after placement, i could easily remain at that spot too doing minimal requirements.
    This season, i have several friends who maintained at 1500 doing so although they usually sit at 1100.

    Not going to say " top players are lucky " they for sure deserve their spot. But the competition behind is meaningless and too random.

    When was the last time a new map was added?
    If they are going to delete titles then why not add 5 man ranked back? Let me pick my team to have fun in a challenging game mode, let me fight other teams instead of waiting every 6 hours for tournaments. Split the queues into solo/team queue.
    Solo/Duo queue effectively killed all pvp guilds.
    Now that titles are removed, ANET is saying I will never have a chance to obtain top 25. Why remove titles, wasnt the point of having titles like that so that when people achieve god of pvp they have all the titles so no need to try anymore, and the titles will consistently get watered down.
    Why did they put a vendor in for the champions gizmos? They put a vendor in the game for 5 people of the entire population to use?
    The number of champions gizmos that exist in the game are 5 per server per month, compare that to some of the super rare infusions in the game like the chak egg sac or the confetti infusion. The rarity doesnt make sense. There are 150+ chak sacs in the game.
    Make the jump pads on skyhammer like the mushrooms in verdant brink, so there is an elevated platform to jump on, if you miss the pad by 2 cm you wasted your jump.
    Test releases before they go live, last time your "programmers" tried to release swiss tournaments, it kicked people out of the tournament with no rewards FOR WINNING MATCHES.
    Improve the tournament rewards, I should be building some kind of currency like ascended shards of glory for playing and doing well in the daily tournaments, this currency should allow us to purchase cool things.
    Add lesser quality champions gizmos to the game.
    Fix the matchmaker so you only play with people in your division.
    Ranked should cost like 200g to play but with increased rewards, a ranked "season pass" so that alt accounts and monkies who are not serious about it cant ruin games.
    Ranked should be more skilled players trying their best to win in a challenging game mode, not babysit the monkies that are in 2 divisions lower than you.
    Names should be deleted from ranked games, talking with the enemy should be forbidden, names should just be "Ranger 1, Warrior 2, etc" so you dont know who exactly you are playing with.
    PVE is doing fine, lets revitalize pvp so those monkies come back to pvp and are not turned off by the state of the game.
    You guys have teams of story writers and map artists working on pve content, but nothing is ever done to pvp, there are no path to target issues everywhere on the pvp maps and you can straight jump out of khylo and go swimming.
    I am mad because this game shows a lot of promise, it has an extremely unique combat system that is fun to play and crazy stuff can happen when everyone is going ham in team fights. For goodness sake world vs world even gets updates and that game mode is nothing more than musical keeps.

    Please devs please I beg you, breathe some life back into pvp. Make some exclusive pvp mounts, do something you guys have an amazing game and it has consistently gone down hill since world tournaments were cancelled.

  • Its selfexplaining enough to see not even one Dev commenting on the PvP Issue.
    Why not just shut down PvP?
    Its as if Anet simply abandoned everything competitive-related.
    6 Years and nothing new in PvP added.
    6 Years same old Modes, same old Hopes (Build Templates, true GvG, Alliance Battles).
    A Matchmaking System, which literally destroyed any form of organized Teamplay while being forced to play with random people, also thanks to the famous solo/duo Vote (THX Community!).
    All Modes in GW2 support teamplay, exept the PvP-Ranked Mode...
    I remember times playing the whole night at weekends with friends in ranked, forging different tactics and strategies, trying out different synergies or simply trying out new ways to approach the Maps.
    With the introduction of solo/duo queue this all ended abruptly.
    Organized teamplay became almost impossible,
    Due to the punishment on a Lose Players got toxic as kitten and Veterans frustrated for having no Opportunity to get a decent, communicating and basic rules knowing team.
    People playing ranked just for the backpiece, the legendary armor or simply the Ascended gear while not caring about any form of teamplay was the final Nail in the rotting coffin of PvP.
    Its not that the Community didnt warn Anet.
    There were more than enough suggestions on how to improve PvP, but Anet simply ignored most of them while adding such nice changes like the long awaited Bench-feature and this beautiful but incredibly unnecessary remake of Heart of the Mists.
    Its as if no one at Anet even plays PvP.
    The "regular" Balance Updates defy all logics.
    While top-Tier classes like Mesmer or Necro and Guard are untouched by heavy nerfs, Anet decides to nerf some of the weakest considered Professions in PvP.
    Mallyx Revenant -which is barely even played by the Community- gets nerfed, Elementalist, which also had a hard stand in PvP got nerfed again.
    I dont see any direction in Balance at all in this game and i gave up all hope on any positive changes in the future.
    Its a 6 Year old game after all, but Anet wasted so much potential by ignoring their long time PvP Fanbase...
    If GW3 ever will be released ill avoid buying it.

    yet, someone(s) will come along and say it ain't that bad. they may even praise it. (we would have to assume they are very new or trolling)

    Also, I don't think GW3 is coming, and if it ever was to come along, expect about another 6 years before that it is even mentioned as coming along.

  • Heh, if GW3 will ever be released, it will have no PvP at all ;)
    Anet loves its buutiful Living World so much....

  • It's sad, but I too barely play PvP these days. I think the real culprit was poor concepts for the elite specs that are impossible to balance. It's sad how much less fun I have these days in PvP. I was trying to get my legendary armor, but at this rate, it might take me another 10 seasons....

    It's still good for a game here and there, but the days of grinding out game after game on unique builds I made are just gone.

    At least I still enjoy the story missions, but as someone who was 90% into PvP, I feel like I only log in for my daily these days between content patches.

    I would even go back to hot, especially the last few patches before POF. But I think the best was vanilla, before all the changes to talents and amulets. I wanted more customization, but we ended up with so much cookie cutter.

    I think the theme of my post is "but". Game was amazing, but they killed the balance in PvP with ridiculous elite specs.

    i'm done. i came back. i continue and i'm done again and again.
    one of my last season replacement, got 7 afks. won 5, lost 5 and still got to mid gold. what's this?
    and that you get matched up against lower divisions all the time and get your ranking points jacked up.
    got people call you names cuz you have top stats. they call it "fake" where you're just trying hard for some good games and wish people don't give up when there's just 100 points difference. random teammates are the worst.
    i've been done and i decayed >1300 rank points past seasons. still played cuz i love the game mode but no more motivation whenever toxicity hit. finally they fixed the decay system. doesn't matter how long you're away, you can only decay this certain amount and not most of your rank points like previously. lol.

    i glanced at the rewards table and i was like kitten. you give players who actively play to improve and more for some large pvp potion? seriously?
    i'm not gonna lie i voted for the solo/queue because i think the idea and concept is very nice. it promotes skills base, you have to improve in order to climb the ladder, and not get carried by a full premade but in reality, the execution is terrible with MMR. if only solo/duo q exists the same time with 5 man q, that'll be awesome. i don't understand why they don't just do it like that.

    i can't think of anything on top of my head. there are so many issues. lol. but i wish they'd divide at least 10 devs for spvp. so something gotta be done or new ideas will come to place, etc. i don't think Anet realize people who plays spvp, and wvw are actually playing pve too. i even think spvp and wvw players spend more than their pve counterpart cuz most of the time your mats and stuff built up while you're doing your killings. but sad that they just focus on one mode.

    Your doing it wrong, you need to run a meme build for a meme mode. least it will provide some entertainment that way.

  • It's quite disappointing that the framework for a good pvp game was there already in GW1 and yet nothing has ever been done in the past 6 years to refresh the pvp here. In 6 years there has been no new ideas on pvp? Yet PvE we can have the ever evolving Living World with new maps kicked out, new rewards, etc.
    Where the PvP in GW1 was a large part of the game, GW2's PvP has (over time) not only missed the mark but has just been left to whither away.
    I'll repeat some good ideas already here that has been stated for 6 years in a row:

    • builds
    • GvG
    • Alliance
    • capture flag, death match (similar to GW1)
    • new maps new game modes

    Has anyone else noticed the insanity of playing the same conquest game mode for 6 years on the same maps? lol...

  • Ranked is the biggest joke on the community. If only they kept and improved off of seasons 1-4 instead of just dumping it and doing this duo kitten with mmr.

    Why couldn't the pvp that worked well in gw1 just be copied over?

    Really it's sad that we are still here at that point and in reality the only fixes to this horrible state we are in ia a drastic change and they aren't willing to do that.

    Every single patch: Minor patch here little bug fix here no added pvp content some living world stuff.

    Then also in every patch.

    NEW ITEMS IN THE GEM STORE TO BUY WITH YOUR REAL MONEY. LOOK AT OUR FLASHY NEW STUFF. NO NEED TO WORRY IF THE GAME IS FUN IN ANY WAY. WE HAVE FLASHY ITEMS!

    You simply experienced the biggest plague of the matchmaking, which is the gold division. You basically got everyone there, so it's hard to get even fights there. Fairly easy to climb back to plat, but it's way too frustrating. Probably anyone of the top players would get mad in that division.
