    .....or shorten the rank grind.

    Either way the goal is r40, who just blast through EVERYONE not in the cool kids club.

    A smaller rank spread for matches would potentially leave those outside the bell curve in a either annoying or OP situation. Ranked matches have shown they won't refuse to begin a match without perfect setup, but they also will call a game a 'ranked' game even if 100% of the players in it aren't that rank sometimes. The threshold for % of players that can fall outside the 'ranked' game though I think is small, but sometimes it uses filler to call it a ranked game. That is where the outer bell curve would be more drastic.

    If it setup a rank 1 - 10 game and a r40 got pulled in, he would destroy the field. IF a rank 30 - 40 game went on and a rank 8 got brought it, it would be obnoxious for them. At least with higher spread games, if there are people who sit outside the bellcurves of the ranked game it claims to be, the effect should be less dramatic. IE. a rank 40 is less powerful if the majority is potentially as high as rank 25, opposed to rank 10. Likewise a rank 8 feels less pain if the majority is 10 - 30 instead of say 20 - 30.

    Honestly at this point I would not bat an eye if Trion cut the ranking process grind in half, and then just focused on releasing new content.


    ...kind of like Hammerknell.

    You know what let's completely eliminate the ranking system!

    While we're at it let's give everyone identical gear and stats!

    Ooh and let's make just one class so NO one will be OP!
