I want to see an option for the game to play unranked and ranked matches. I’m aware that we can play Custom games with a group of 5 and have the same thing but as an option for those that can’t get a group of 5 I want to see something like this implemented. Now I know there are few old threads on this but I wanted to suggest my own ideas on how this could work.
Unranked Mode: A fun carefree way to play the game. No leaderboard progression or statistics will be recorded but mastery can be rewarded and used. Player rank is not a factor and no progression is made. If in a party you could potentially be the Monster if set as you’re number one preference. Offers practice with other players of different skill levels without worry or too much tension and it’s better than playing against AI which don’t have the same thought process as players. Also great to learn to play different roles, characters, new unlocks, and different perks for the game (all players have access to the 3 star version of perks in this mode).
Edit: There’s no punishment for leaving games in unranked mode.
Ranked Mode: Basically the same system we currently have but maybe a few potential differences. Potentially new leaderboards for Overall Monster, Overall Assault, Overall Support, Overall Medic, and Overall Trapper on top of the current character based leaderboards.
This is just an idea I was tossing around in my head and wanted to see what you guys thought would be good and bad with this. I’m open to any suggestions.
