I'd only thumb this up if it meant SBMM was being entirely removed from unranked. Otherwise the only difference between ranked and unranked is the visibility of where the game deems your skill level.

Exactly, we're already playing ranked play in quickplay, cod has zero clue what they're doing on quickplay vs ranked. All they need to do is copy other popular games but they can't figure it out

Don't laugh but I don't understand as I'm a casual gamer but what's the difference between the MW2 multiplayer that I'm playing online now compared to this ranked play etc? What is ranked play. I thought I was playing with a rank that increases at certain point stages.

Ranked means they will match you with similar skilled players. Like a level 50 will match with level 55 and a level 10 will match with a level 5ish.

It's not account level that will be matched, but skill level via some MMR/ELO system. There are level 2 smurfs out there who will stomp lvl 55's.

I'm not entirely sure on how they'll grade it, whether it will be bronze/silver/gold etc like Rocket League or an ELO number like Siege. I suppose functionally it's the same thing so it doesn't matter.

Is it going to be crap like all their previous ranked play? Timed events that place you in a ladder and you move up and down in that ladder? Just give us a normal ranked play like every other comp game please, let us move up and down between the ranks based on ELO, for the whole season
