hey guys,
So I'm pretty keen to setup a better form of a competitive ranked scene here, rather than a solo Q leader board on this site.
My Idea is pretty simple using either this forum of another we create, Divide it into Both a guild tally and A / B / C division team format.
Teams and guilds when to que up against each other and post the results on the forum chart.
Having separate divisions is an idea so that Everyone will be able to have a go at 4v4 ranked without going up against some top teams, then logging off after a single match.
The lower divisions can also be used for under geared alt's.
The purpose of this particular thread is to see if guilds are for the idea and are happy to participate in that format, or if anyone else had similar ideas and please suggest them.

Probably add timezones too just to see where overlaps between guild playtime availabilities

I've come pretty close to giving up at this point. Even in solo there isn't a single person on the server with 100+ wins. I think top is 89ish and then it drops into the 60 's.

Ranked doesn't pop and it is way too hard to come up with a reasonable community driven solution.

That being said... I will still participate in ranked if we get something set up. I have lost a lot of interest in the game though.

Ranked doesn't pop
My team were playing ranked almost all day yesterday against Goof Troop and Vossen, had good competitive games also. So maybe now is the time to start forming more strong teams to queue up and get some games; it would be nice fighting other teams also rather then just the same team all night long for some variety. I will usually place a message in the /ranked channel when we have teams in queue.

I will agree that it is a daunting prospect for new teams to form up only to be shot down very quickly by the more experienced teams, so I hope your solution does come to fruition and gets more people involved in good competitive games. That said another solution for those kinds of guilds is to find another guild that you feel would be a fair fight and have a talk to their GM or whomever would be interested in organising some friendly games together, it's what we did when I was in Synthesis and it worked fine, it just involves someone taking initiative.

Yeh i see guys, but hopefully if we get enough guilds and people interested we can then add some more elements into everything.
To move on and keep this going before more people be dis-interested in the game aswell as PVP talk to your guilds see if they want to enter a team or teams, remembering that we will have two divisions A / B teams so less experienced teams can still compete on a fair level.

If you have a team or guild that wants to join in just post below in a similar format:
Team division:
Player names:
Interchanges (for now maybe have 2 or 3 interchanges, as peoples personal life can come in the way)
Time zone:

and with those we should be able to get some things sorted out and we can start some ranked!

I agree with NotAnyOldName, there are a few teams that play ranked every day but they are very experienced teams leaving not much room for pug teams or guilds that are newer to the ranked scene to do well. Having some times set up so that the lower tier teams can compete and have some fun fair games is a great idea Licon. I hope this thread really picks up and we can get some more teams running, more the merrier! . I guess we'll be the first team to fully support this idea! Here's our info.

Guild: Ned Kelly (Australian)
Team division: A
Player names:
1) Rise (Tank)
2) Kevayrts (Heals)
3) Bazjam (DPS)
4) Halcyon (DPS)
Interchanges (for now maybe have 2 or 3 interchanges, as peoples personal life can come in the way)
We don't really have any interchanges set as of yet, we normally just see who is around and give them a hit. Vec has been playing with us quite a bit lately, so I guess maybe him if hes cool with it.
Time zone:
Sydney time, AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) UTC + 10 hours
We're a team that is always keen to play ranked and pretty much in queue every night. We've been playing some amazing games against Vossen and Goof Troop recently (As mentioned by NotAnyOldName) and always looking to some more people to mix with, play with and against.

Thanks for the starting support My Ninjas/ Ned kelly
Its good to see that we have some teams already forming for organized ranked.
A few others have spoken to me already about forming groups, when they are formed i'll get each group to contact each other ingame to organize when they can group up for some games.

Ned Kelly, just wanted to thank you for the runs yesterday

Was nice to get a few fun ranked games, and nice of you to jump to less effective compositions to give challenges to both teams

Our random little pug seemed to work Ok together, butt if anyone wants to look for a healer for a Ranked Team, I'd be down
