Flawed Ranking System

Yeah, another whining post. Get over it.

Ok... why is it a team thing? Why can't we be ranked individually, so that those that suck aren't against pros and the other way round? Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but it's all about winning or loosing. What if you lost but played like a god? Like, all these top stats are meaningless? ;c

    I do agree that it's flawed. As a bad player, it seems to make players angry at others for no reason. There is no more queues for teams (Just heard there used to be), so no need for this.
    Please Arenanet make it player based.

    Because there is no other way? You cant exactly rank people based on their performance because there is no way to accurately automatically assess performance. Take for instance a D/P thief. Lets say all he did the whole game was keep the enemy occupied letting his team steamroll elsewhere. He didnt get a lot of points, but he was a huge part of the win. On the other hand, you may have a guy who just stays on close 24/7 and fights off people who try to get it. Ultimately losing the game because his team could never hold mid and lost with a 1:2 point disadvantage. He got a lot of points, but he did not contribute much.

  • I agree that it isn't dead simple, yet if someone did have a lot of top stats after a loss he still played well, and should gain ranking imo. But you're right about those that don't get stats but contribute, and it would be complicated to reward those.
