Ranked Suggestion (yet another one)

For many, the hardest part of ranked is getting to 9.  That being said, doesn't it make sense to allow the better players a swifter way to advance, which also results in 'more even' games for the lesser players playing ranked in the tweens?

So, maybe change the 'stars' to the following:

+1 -- win a game
+1 -- finish top TWO (win or lose)

-1 -- lose a game
-1 -- finish LAST (win or lose)

Finish top 2 and win, you get two stars; play afk or poorly and win, you get zero stars; play AFK or poorly and lose, you get -2 stars.  The above quickly separates the chaff.

I figured the suggestion was going to be more cowbell. 

 

I think some other games use a similar mechanic to move more experienced players up more quickly.

It's pretty much impossible to win with 6 ships so even the bottom player on the winning team probably did *something* to help you win.  For example maybe a DD yolo'd into a cap and spotted all the bad guys.  But seeing the bad guys allowed everyone else on the team to make some kills.   That player shouldn't be punished if his team won.

I’d be happy if my finishing rank was the highest rank attained during the season, not the rank held at the end of the season.

I love playing ranked but when I get to a new rank I’m torn about stopping as I’m at best an average captain and feel like I’m more likely to fall back than progress further.

My highest rank this season is 8 but have gone between 10 and 9 quite a few times
