I always like to compliment before I go in. NRS online functionality and performance have improved immensely for sure. To top of the chain roll back network infrastructure, finally removing region lock, making so called Ranked FT3 and even breaking new grounds with WiFi indicator (although we can't reject yet) No doubt they going to keep on improving as they go. But when you look at nearly every other FG you notice they have something which is probably the most fun and challenging factor. An actual Ranked mode! What do I mean by actual Ranked mode? Basically a promotion/demotion levelling system which means if you are really good and improving it will show as your ranking and if you are only new or a casual it will show in your ranking. Skip to the bottom TL;DR if you ain't arsed reading my opinion 2 main reasons we need this I said above "Fun" and "Challenging" 1. Fun - look at ranks like a title you are chasing, to actually feel rewarded as you rank up which will give you more of a taste to rank up more and more. Like anything in life Reward is more meaningful when there is a risk! Which is if you ain't keeping up the pace in performance you can get demoted and go down a rank which would drive you to go back up. 2. Challenging - To be able to keep yourself challenged by the ability to constantly fight people around your level. It's so frustrating when you go to Ranked in NRS games and bump into multiple players who could of just picked up the game and have no idea what they are doing. It's not fun for either parties involved. So with a more traditional Rank mode this will avoid this so new players will face people their level so they can grow and not feel like quitting after getting destroyed. I guess you could argue it is an actual Ranked mode because of leaderboards. But that's redundant because there's also leaderboards for playermatch and KOTH. Plus there is a lot of luck as somebody in top could of just got mostly noobs when a Ranked mode would heavily reduce that. So why not both Ranked and leaderboards like other games Everybody's happy. But right now I feel Ranked mode should be just called Random mode. TL;DR Why have NRS got no traditional Promotion/Denotion based Ranked modes yet? And what's your take on it?
