    A Modest Proposal (about ranked matchmaking): Let's play Clan Wars instead

    As you can read from the title, my "modest proposal" (J.Swift has nothing to do with my suggestion) is to switch from a player based matchmaking to a clan based system. Here there're my opinions why this could actually work.

    At the moment most players I see are new to the game, this means that they are playing Ranked just because they are curious about what they were able to unlock, but where're the more experienced players? I see that every time the Ranked system gets updated they come back for some time and then they leave. Why?
    Because the game gets frustrating, mostly because of teammates. When I first start a ranked match, I don't know if I'm going to play with them or i'm going to be forced to carry the team, playing more roles in one. I don't trust them, and they don't trust me. And it's for this very reason I see most of the times 3 or 4 specialists and no medics (let's suppose the guys can play).

    What a Clan based system could change?

    Faster matchmaking:
    it will be faster to find a match if everyone is on a full party

    Fair competitions:
    or at least more than it is at the moment. I'm pretty sure that Clan masters interested in the competition will make some sort of selection.

    More Clans=More teams in tournaments:
    even on forums and communities, sometimes it's really hard to find someone reliable to play a tournament with.

    Revenue for the developers:
    you know, premium items like custom logos and exterior stuff like that.


    I know, everyone should be able to play ranked independently from skills, comrades and level, but let's face it: this is a very good F2P game in my opinion, but people stop playing it for some reason. There're other games out there that don't deserve a penny, but there're more players there than here.They try to create and attract micro communities, and people continue to play those games because of the relationships made in their clans.

    What you think guys? Did I go crazy?

    it's called "ranked" not "competition"
    that's a different gameset entirely, look to DBNation type setups for clans
