Ranked qualifications suggestion (a center ground for the uncertain).

There is a possible misprint in the US rules (forget how it's worded exactly)...

The gist of it is you continue to play in gold next week "only" if you reach rank 1.

The possible misprint is on the RU server the actual wording is you continue to play in gold next week "even" if you reach rank 1.

The latter may not make sense unless you remember that once you reached rank 1 before you were done for the season & now the idea is that you play again next week "even" if you reach rank 1...but the "only" that is in the NA rules suggest you drop out of gold if you don't reach rank 1.

Some have interpreted this to mean that you drop back to the start of silver...which has caused some understandable panic.

Based on rank 10 in gold being labeled irrevocable I believe the "misprint" theory to be true & that once in gold you do stay in gold even if you don't make it to rank 1...

But maybe it shouldn't be that way (take note of enhanced rewards suggestion below in conjunction w/this idea)...if you don't reach rank 1 in silver or gold (moot point in bronze...& silver is optional...this is more geared towards gold but if rewards are boosted the idea can be used for both) you drop back to qualifications for that league next week.

Not suggesting dropping all the way back to the start of silver if you don't make rank 1 in gold or the start of bronze if you don't make silver rank 1...just need to do the qualifications between them again.

In addition...in gold league rank 5-1 will be immune to playing against qualifiers...

IOW qualifiers take on other qualifiers & players from rank 10-6 & rank 5-1 don't have qualifiers in it. Rank 5-1 will still play against other rank 10-6 players to fill out the queues but they will be immune to qualifiers at the end & need to take on the more skilled players to advance.

This doesn't add any extra irrevocable ranks...those will stay as is...it will just give the better players less potatoes at the top & will make the qualifications easier once the better players have advanced to rank 5 & above (or harder if you need the better players to carry you).

The extra grind can be compensated by improvements of the rewards at the top maybe more in line w/how ranked rewards used to be overall.

@Hapa_Fodderis this the right place for this suggestion or is there a ranked suggestion thread it should have gone into?

Edit: Oops...meant to put this in gameplay suggestions not general so flubbed it anyway :-0

Let those who want to play ranked, play ranked.

Ranked is just another game mode, like randoms, like coop, like operations.

In a way, you have to qualify now, if you want to be in silver league or gold.

As the title states this is a suggested change...but I'll change the wording to further clarify it.

Thanx for pointing out the ambiguity @Sammy_Small :-)

It would make more sense just to start from beginning of silver. If they weren't able to make rank in gold, then silver would be the better suited league for them, but if they're put back in qualifiers, then they're stuck there and can't fall back down to silver.

Maybe they didn't have time that week to do the grind...if they made the qualifications they shouldn't be penalized that badly for having a life outside the game.

Seeing as this is the 1st season those that actually can't hang will hopefully learn there lesson & know better next season...if they don't figure it out then it's there own fault after this season...plus this is a test season & we don't know what changes will occur next season...just making a middle ground suggestion between the 2 options for now.

The second week ( 4th overall ) Match Maker in Gold League is worse than the first week...

... on the other hand this looks "fair and balanced with no possibility of exploiting a match making queue"
