Very disappointed with the rank "re-work".....it basically didn't change at all for S6.
As a solo queue player, I won't be touching rank come S6 as there's no incentive, top 3% reaches Diamond, yet all I get is a badge, same as gold, silver and bronze, where 90% of the playerbase remains.
''There’s been a slight but noticeable increase in players in the higher tiers. Overall we are pleased with the distribution of players in this fashion and hope players are enjoying the climb through the Ranks every Season.''
So we basically have more master/predators compared to alt f4 season 3 which we noticed but find acceptable.
''The introduction of Master Tier has been a success''
Ignoring the majority of ranked players we find that forcing you to consistently play with the addition of ranked split to also keep engagement up is more of a priority to us than making ranks determined by skill not game time.
''Since the introduction of Ranked Leagues, one of the most persistent critiques we’ve had of the system is that players feel like they are often matched up against players far above their Rank. This experience can be very frustrating. Our data shows this doesn’t happen very often - for example, only 3% of matches for all Platinum players in Apex Legends have them going up against an Apex Predator.''
We have totally avoided friends being unable to play with more than one tier difference but matching you with golds at whatever rank YOU actually are. So best be playing with people of equivalent skill in premade because matchmaking will screw you.
''This means that Ranked is not just for the pro players and content creators out there''
Yes you forgot to mention the unemployed that are abusing dashboarding still that take literally minutes to loot a box and instantly die making ranks a complete joke.
Guess i won't be playing it for another season and best not to fix it now otherwise i'll be destroying bronze lobbies. GG
