Huge props to BW for killing ranked.
Don't flatter yourself, EA/BW. I'm just here by the grace of a referral.

And these are the people you want me to THANK? You're crazy if you think these people should be appreciated simply for keeping the que less dead than it already is.

I know ranked is already dead, dude. Just look at the leaderboards and the lack of progress in elo and smaller pool of players. Add the trolls and PvE farmers on top of the smaller pool of ranked players and that just kills the ques faster and ruins the experience for those that "take it seriously".

We take it seriously because, uh, I don't know, it's a competition and we want to climb to qualify for the rewards? Not like it matters anyway. Even though 5.9.2 was hailed as being a PvP match, what followed was a minor exodus for PvPers ironically.

I'm gonna admit, I was hyped for this season because it meant no more backfilling, possibly less wintrading, and x-faction would prevent que syncing on the smaller faction and increase que pops. However, cheating is still rampant, tanks and heals are playing the system even further with the increase in arrogant PvE farmers queing, trolls and throwers queing increased, and more actual PvPers have started leaving the game again.

I've already stated my position in my previous post so I'm gonna leave it at that. It's honestly absolute as it explains everything I and my other PvP friends have felt and experienced since 5.9.2 launched.


You must not play on SS. On that server we have a lovely guild called Greatest Of All Trolls that have started queing 3+ stealth classes, letting everyone else seriously playing die and then proceeding to vote kick them.
Like it or not this is the reality... Those people keep the pop alive. On DM it used to pop all day from noon in season 8 and now it pops only in prime time mostly. A lot of people quit doing it...

Ranked is a competition ? It is not. It's more of gambling machine designed to mess your head up and keep you hooked it and your reward is elo.. instead of money so that you can shut me the ***** up with your big gold flair whenever we have an argument in game about PVP. " what do ya know, noob ? I am gold rated.."

Competitions are usually fair. but in this game ranked is anything but fair... Maybe WoW is a different and that's why it has worse gear grind yet 10 times more people playing it.

There is very little incentive to que now because developers aren't interested in doing anything about ranked in this game. cheaters get away with rewards and legit people get banned. This all destroys the integrity of that game mode and subs who like warzones would rather invest their time in regular warzones.

And finally please put yourself in the shoes of a newish player to ranked to tries to play well, but fails due bad luck, lack of experience. The angry kids will instantly shaft him and insult him, discourage him from queing and he will be gone for good.

it's a combination of Developers + Ranked community that have led to what we have today. Players are just too toxic which immediately turns people away from queing. Shame ? Of course.

Is this happening in Solo Ranked? Because if it's Team Ranked, you should be queueing up with your own team of 4, or not at all. And regardless of which Ranked they are doing this in, has anyone reported them? If all they are doing is trolling Ranked, I'm pretty sure that's actionable.
