Bioware, You've tried this before with only wins counting and it obviously wasn't working so you changed it so you could win or lose and still progress. You guys seem to do this stuff backwards.
Bioware finally added solo que to ranked but they eliminate 8 vs 8 ranked. Now they finally add a quest for ranked but make it so only wins count? LOL ...why act like it will be balanced and fun for those that lose over and over?
Yea lets encourage more window licking baddies to flood the queues so they can 'grind gear'.
Ranked is not for grinding gear. Its for playing in a competitive environment and measuring your abilities against other skilled opponents. Its already a relative travesty, putting a quest in Ranked that can be completed by losing is just straight up idiocy.
