    Subject: Eso without ranks

    I wonder what ESO would be like without the ranking system. Like if people didnt know how good others were and just based it on experience via looking at home city level. Maybe that would end the need to drop people.

    But if there were no ranks people could be playing the worlds best player and someone who just started playing.

    What do you think?

    Subject: Re: Eso without ranks

    In the early days of ESO it had no ranks. And it still doesn't if you want to play scenarios, free-for-alls, or handicap games. Why do few play these? Well, "rank" and "bragging rights" are part of life, like it or not.

    Without some recognition of placement and advancement people would rapidly grow tired of and leave the game. Rank serves another purpose too. Without rank you would not know if that teammate you were playing with was any good and newer players would quickly get frustrated from being tromped by better players that they unwittingly were matched against.

    The people who sell games know a rank system results in more game sales. I know of several players who have upwards of ten or more accounts.

    Finally, without rank the point-trading fools who think that nobody notices that they got that "Major General" rank by loosing to themselves would also have to find something else to occupy their time.

    mmmmm rank for sure has both pro's and con's

    I think its important cause i wouldnt want to spend time constantly versin players who are new to the game as it wastes my time. i prefer playing tight close games, even if i lose i dont mind.

    Then its very annoying how people refuse to play against someone slightly high. I dont know. Keep it though i guess

    Is the best technology used to go after point traders?

     

    I have two copies of the game, and multiple computers. 

    Do people seriously open EOS on two different computers on two different game cd's just to gain rank on an account?

    ESo would certainly be different if there were no ranks... Not sure if it's a good or bad difference.

    Subject: Re: Eso without ranks

    a ESO without a rank system would be coolStick out tongue

    i bet half the ppl would immediately stop playing. wihch is rather dumb. the reason why i play a game is cuz i like it, not cuz there is a ranking system.

    overall the ranking system in this game is pretty dumb and has too many flaws.

    only problem with having no ranking system would be not knowing who's roughly in the same league as you. if it wasn't for this problem, then i would be completely for removing the PR system.

    so many ppl don't care about ranks nowadays anyway

    the ranking system is good if you think about it, of course its not as good as the old elo rating system but it still shows a decent rank of a player minus a few relatively minor flaws which are exploitable.

    I think that overall the rank system is okay.  As some people have mentioned, it has it's strengths and it's weaknesses.

     I do think people would be far more frustrated with no rank system than with one.  Nothing like showing up at a game only to get smashed by an expert.  Or to not be challenged with you smash a conscript. LOL.

    You guys hate him for no reason.

    And thanks for the responses. I do enjoy ranking up especially when i try to rank up. and sometimes i lose games on purpose to stay at my rank in treaty. The general treaty rank in twc atleast is master sarge to first leuitenant. I stay at 2nd leuitenant even though i rarely go up to 1st to play more games. Sup im trying to get up to 2nd leuit but im a 19.5 now.

    Not having ranks would change clans too. They would probably go by account creation date to measure a players skill without seeing him play. Which is ok but ive seen people from december as majors. and people from 2006 as conscripts and are not good whatsoever.
