Sir Cunning Linguist.1705 Posted September 30, 2021 Share Posted September 30, 2021 A bad rank system allows a bronze player who lost their last forty matches in a row to queue with a platinum player who is on the verge of entering top 25. An even worse ranked system also uses the average of the two players ranks to calculate their weight in matchmaking. Idea: prevent players who are too far apart in rank to queue together in ranked as a blatantly wide open door for match manipulation exists. Different idea: use the rating of the higher player as the average. Different idea: delete duo queue past a certain badge rank. (solo queue only at p1/2+) Funny how people cry about balance on the one class they overplay instead of opening their eyes to the unbalanced playing field itself. Everyone is a loser in ranked because the system makes us that. If you are 90-0 or have four accounts in legendary eight, chances are you care more about exploiting your way to easy game clout rather than honorable competition. Just like Arena Net cares more about weighing new specializations on their wobbly money scales rather than taking a few minutes to address real simple PvP issues. We don't need a better game mode or more balance when the foundations of quality matchmaking are so heavily slept on. Why target balance and build diversity so heavily when a legitimate playing field doesn't exist to accrue accurate balance data in the first place? 8 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
