Hey there! Let me start with a sad story of my games.
I played Apex Legends with my friends every day with great pleasure. Our setup is Gold II, Platinum III and Platinum I (me). Our rivals were mainly players of Platinum or Gold rank, somethimes Diamond. The games were great and looked like balanced. We could lose or win and every fight was exciting.
Then everything has changed - I reached Diamond IV. Right in the next game we played only against Predators and Diamonds. The same thing happened in all the following games. Our usual champions are Top 1000 Predators. Our team does not play at such a high level, we can do absolutely nothing and hope only for good luck! Each match turned into torture. My level of play allows me to do something, at this time my friends feel helpless. They just refuse to play with me on the same team. I can’t do anything! I can’t go back to the platinum rank and can’t run with my team against strong players! There is only one way out of this situation is to create another account.
Is this fair? Why should I leave friends or my account simply because the ranking system is broken? To feel dishonesty, I will once again describe our emotions. A match in the Platinum I we played against players of our level. A match in the Diamond IV opponent immediately 2 levels higher. And there is no turning back .
I really hope that Respawn will see my message and the rating system will be changed.
