I am wondering if there is a way to join a ranked match with a friend? If I create it, he never sees my name and vice versa. Is there a way to play a ranked match with a buddy?

Ranked matches are meant to be played with random players. If you want to play with a friend, you can do that in player matches. You still earn the same XP towards ranking up.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I know that, but he only plays ranked matches for whatever reason (I think he likes to see his name on the leaderboards). So is there no way for me to join in with him?

You could private chat with him and get him to give you details on whatever room he's just joined(as ranked matches are also a "one time deal") And then search custom matches to find that particular host...or tell you friend he can't come to your birthday...hope that helps!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The funny thing is we've actually tried that. But we can never seem to find each other's match. I thought it might be because we're on each other's friends list, or because we were private chatting. It seems if either he or I host, we cannot locate each other's games.

I'd say, then, that your experiencing what many others on here also frustrated about; custom match searches not yielding ALL available servers...BOY Ubi we sure do have to put up with alot of this, enough is enough, TEST THE DAMN GAMES!!! I'll do it for bloody free..you could have even hung on to it for a while longer and STILL made the christmas buck!!

Agreed. It would have been smarter to hold on to it a little while longer. Kids would buy the game with grandma's money and ther Best Buy gift cards and gotten a better game!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

So I guess we'll keep trying. Even when we use really weird parameters like only Italian language, we will get no matches.

Sorry dude, it sucks that you have to deal with that..You should just convince your "friend" that ranked matches are virtually no different than player ones(as the leaderboards are ineffectual anyway) except you have to find a new room after every match and you can't invite friends..I don't think he deserves you man, he's just a selfish statsaholic...you don't need that, he's not even that handsome!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Who cares about ranked matches? The only difference from player matches are that you can't play with a group of people you want to play with and you have to waste time finding a new game for each match.
