First i would like to say, i really like the new scoring system in Ranked mode. It really encourage players to do the right thing, instead of just camping and hiding. Respawn did a good job there!
I would like to suggest a function in addition. I have a fix squad i used to play ranked with. Even if we are playing together, some of us reaches the next rank earlier, other later. The problem is whenever someone reach the next rank, we have to play against more difficult enemies in order to reach the same rank. The problem escalates when there are not enough enemies in higher ranks.
Imagine a scenario where
I am Platinum I, but because of the highest ranked player we will play in Diamond, and because of the lack of players in Predator rank we will face against Predators. This scenario can easily happen. It happened a lot in the previous ranked season. I think it's a bit unfair, and this is one of the reason why people are starting a smurf account.
My suggestion to solve this problem is, a manual rankup function. Whenever you reach the next rank, instead of automatically receive it, you should be stay between the there until you manually select the "RANK UP" option. In this case you could remain in the certain rank until your other squad members reach the top. We could stay there without the risk of losing RP, until we Rank up manually.
What do you think?
