View Full Version : i dont understand

the online rank system is not fair, i understand they put the level thingy to help noobs not get put up vs a pro. but its not fair that once you get to upper level and your the only there . what then... for example. in ps3 2v2 rank, im the only one in bronze league at lvl 34 , and no1 else. am i supposed to wait to someone gets to bronze in order to play.. theres times i can wait hours . and still no game, its not fair they should fix that...

I don't understand either, because I am rank 35-odd in 1v1 and get matched against level 15s all the way up to level 50s.

Maybe it's just a sign that the 2v2 ranked truly is dying due to the risk of getting partnered with a total idiot...?

My point is I don't think you're a victim of the match making. It seems to be quite good at opening up the rank restrictions to find a game (although it may end up pretty one sided).

I think your problem is that no-one is playing ranked 2v2. If you go to unranked 2v2 you have next to no problem finding a game...

Aye - in 1v1 ranked I've been matched all the way from level 47 (Deton Van Zan - he's rather good http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif) to level 8 (poor gamer - kinda felt sorry for him, and didn't go too hard, but he never stood a chance).

The issue is that it's making sure people get games rather than sit around if there's no-one of the same rank there - but that there are very few people playing ranked 2v2 (if I'm on at the same time as mates, we'd all rather play together - so we play unranked - if we're going to play ranked, we'll hit 1v1, as at least that way we don't need to worry about getting teamed up with someone who's not all there).

thats cowpoo again LOL, it shouldnt have been once u get to a certain level. its should have been you can vs anyone 10 level above you and 10 level under you, i also 1v1 rank, and the top 7 is really goin hard at it. that when i go search i always end up playing 1 of them that it got me tired of the 1v1, i mean some game i want a easy win lol , but i been winning and losein to the top 7, if u think about it there is only like 10 of us that pass silver and i cant believe how when the number get to gold first how was he finding a game. so people got to stop playin custom and play more rank. i mean what does the custom lvl mean. compare to a leaderboard where people can see. i dont understand that about this game. first game i seen, most players rather custom then rank in any game, game type. its CRAZY lol need to spread the word , as for the excuse, i dont want someone i dont know or end up with a newb, i mean how am i doing it?? dont give up and never say never, i won games 2v1 no joke

I wouldn't worry about what the ranks 'mean' per se Deton - I mean, even the ranked games reward frequency as well as skill (I've got more points in some losing games as I have in some winning games where I've been 'shut down' early, but have managed to scrape by with a minor victory).

And as for people preferring to play with their friends, that's a personal preference that's quite reasonable! I'd much rather have fun with a mate than grind up a leaderboard with a random who may often doesn't even have a mic. Sure, it's possible to play 2v2 with randoms and win, but I have more fun losing playing with a mate than winning playing with a random, generally.
