All my friends left the game a few years ago. Solo Q regs it is for me. I work 2 jobs as it is and making time for the gym in between, i dont have the time to get stressed about ranked, not worth the BS it has turned into.

Ranked is dominated by a minority of players who top the boards every season..

Do they cheat ? I don't know and I don't care but the truth is that mathematically, you will most likely never gonna make it into that elite club.

The odds are always against you and ranked works exactly like a slot machine/gambling.

You que and get 20 elo for let's say 3 wins than you lose 30 elo because you get a thrower,bad team, bad luck or whatever then you get angry and want your 20 elo back and keep queing. If you replace elo with money, it's frankly the same slot machine gambling.

It's designed to mess with your brain and keep you hooked to it.

You could que for ranked to have fun and maybe because you enjoy competition but that doesn't work because you will get yelled, talked down, bullied by the ranked overlords who are addicted to their ego boosting elo's. And they get very angry when they lose elo. It's like their real life job.

Never start and argument with an elo addict in the game because he will smash his shiny gold or silver rating into your face and shut you up. " what do you know, kid ? " What's your rating ? 1200 ? Mine is 2.1k and my rating is proof that I am god and you're trash. " that's how it usually goes.

Enjoy the game, friend. That's why you pay the monthly sub. Don't forget that. If pay 15$ to get frustrated, maybe you should spend your money on something else.

Same pattern with PvE Conquest : A few guilds dominate everything.

It's merely like in RL now.
In RL, a few giant corporations dominate everything as well.

Give the players a good reason to que ranked... and it will pop every 5 minutes.

Ranked in it's current state isn't very motivating...

Most people que because they want to do well, climb in the ranks and be competitive.

Considering that the same people are on top every year, an average player thinks that "Ok.. my chances of getting good at this ***hit is 15% at best. A lot of players who used to que in season 8 DON'T que anymore and a lot left the game.

It's sad, but... it's what we have to accept.

It used to pop from noon till night last year.

It is popping but holy f*** it is traumatic today. Think I lost 6-7 matches in a row... that hasn't happen in a while. I guess this is as good a time as any to take a break. Hopefully a permanent one.

I find it truly pathetic to see people care about solo ranked outcomes. Some players really need to check themselves.
