yeahh this level thing is rele old i have had this game ever since it came out and ive been a blue rank all this time and its rele annoying i play this game everyday and i still cant rank up
Do you really want a ranking system that COD has already? The games are completely different!
The more you play in COD the more XP you get wonderful. That means absolutely nothing. At least with trueskill you can rank up and down which has the foundation to a unique ranking system that responds to a players performance.
First mistake they should of made the ranking system at the least 10 ranks and they should of provided the player with a bar to track your gained or lost experience.
If you think making a COD ranking system is the answer you are so wrong at least make it somewhat related to performance not how many hours you can devote to this game.
Oh by the way they are not going to reset your overall stats (wins and losses)....and yes they are starting everyone at XP level 0.
Rethink an original system don't rush another update and spit out an uninspired rank system that lacks excitement.
yeah i would like one like that cuz its soo stupid i mean like i understand where your coming from wit the true skills and stuff but i have been playing this game ever since it came out and still no rank
Again I say keep TrueSkill just,
Add a FFA game type for quicker recognizing of individual stats.
Add a social playlist for non ranked games so we can warm up.
Add all 50 level s of TrueSkill
Add host Migration
Remove cheaters as much as possible
= TrueSkill working as intended
FFA would be ok, but not adding it just for the sake of individual stats alone, ideally Trueskill should beable to take into account your individual kill to death ratio no matter what gametype you play.
F**k the warming up, you can do that in a private room.
I dont care how many levels they put in as long as its equal to or more than the current setup (demotions included).
obviously the last 2 would be great.

i could care less about rank, simply because im stuck at 2 , even though i have won 26 out 30(no joke) and it was against my trueskill.
that and also they are changing it anyways so what does it matter,
im just more worried about moving up the leaderboards.
I WAS RANKED 194,000 IN EXECUTION 2 WKS AGO AND NOW IM RANKED
FFA would be cool for me because I really don’t care to play with randoms all the time you get some really annoying people. Not mention there is no better way for people to get individual stats if that’s what everyone is worried about.
How do you propose having a warm up in a private room unless you have friends on? Social playlist would be cool if they kept TrueSkill. Guess it does not matter with the proposed system.
TrueSkill has 50 levels EPIC Mapped the game to show 5 Ranks, that’s why you never see yourself move up or down. There is what I would guess 10 levels per Rank.
O and actually i am a level 2, have been for ages, i bet my kill to death ratio is better than yours too, if that counted for anything in the current Trueskill system i would be a higher rank than you right? i rest my case...moron

I strongly agree that the system needs to be based off more than just a K/D or W/L ratio. That is where an XP system can work well, It makes it easy to give set points for certain in game actions. If you want there to be a focus on team play then make revives worth more XP than kills. It is also an easy system to adjust after implementation.
However, it is obvious that a system where you can go up and down is needed. An XP system can provide that as well. It can even do it without using a loss in XP mechanic. Your XP sets you at a position, your position to everyone else determines your rank and the rank is used for matching. (if trueskill wasn't used)
For example; You have been doing well, gaining lots of XP and your rank has gone up. but in the next few days your game is off, gain very little XP and loose your rank. even though you still gained XP your overall average to the masses had dropped and placed you back in the rank you were in before.
The problem with that system is that there could not be an XP cap or XP adjustments/resets would be needed now an then so that the large XP numbers could be handled fast enough.
Right that's enough e-beef i cant handle anymore lol, need to get back to my real life, but one last thing to say about the current Trueskill system.
Whats the point in the current Trueskill system making predictions on who should win the game before a game starts, based upon each teams players rankings, when those rankings of each player that the predictions are being made on are only based upon mainly wins and losses in the first place and not individual skills, ie: kill to death ratios for each player. kinda makes the whole thing pointless in the first place, but thats just my opinion.
Yes TrueSkill needs to be done away with, this ranking system seems a little bit odd though. I'd rather see each playlist get a ranking system somewhat like a Halo ... or better yet no ranking system at all just put in a region filter and have people play against others close by for the best connection possible.
If everyones problem with trueskill is that it doesn't move fast enough, why can't it just be made to move people up and down ranks fast enough to satisfy what everyone wants. If it moved fast enough for people to move up in just a few days, and possibly down in just a few days, maybe that would be an easier fix, and be a more accurate representation of someones skill at the same time
4 Stripes on original Gears 2 ranking
Trueskill is an old, DEAD ranking system, so complicated, why is something like this ever needed. Seriously either EPIC makes their own original ranking system or don't put one at all.
Title says it all.

well it is also stupid for the ppl who cheat in the game also to level up maybe if they took stupid lil glitches out of the game it would be fine ya know i mean like i liked the way cod4 and 5 is with the level and stuff but once i played gears and ive played every day ever since it came out and i still never ranked up yet i mean like its not fair my friends start a new account with the free one month and stuff and play for five min and level up to a gold and ive been playing ever since it came out and still nothin .... thats bull
Nobody cares about winning a game with the COD rank/exp system!
only about there K/D ratio.Teamwork will be over!
good point mitch, i think we should keep the ranks we have now but show people their progreess that would make everything better
no its so stupid you cant work as a team in this game when you play wit retarted ppl
then simply play with a party, add some friends over xbox live
its an okay idea but i think it should be like u have a highest skill and thats how you rank up because exp. just showas that u've played the game a lot.
not exp, a horrible player could be the highest rank just because he plays 24/7
no friends rele have gears for the fact that they hate hate the way it was made and most of my friends that do have it suck
well thats too bad, add people through the forums
Having an assortment of pixels next to your name doesn't mean **** its an EXPERIENCE RANK so if you have played more you will have experienced more it seems perfectly fine to me. The 1st one didn't even have ranks, so you should just be happy that this one does.
so what then thats whats funny when you kill them cuz they think there good just cuz they have a high rank
yes i think that is brilliant
never played the first one and to be honest with you the rankin system is the only reason some ppl play games cuz just like cod it gets beat after a while when you cant rank up and gears is becoming to get like that
neep keep the ranks its what makes the game
i know:P they just have to show us progress like when were going to rank up, like how much wins,how much exp that kind of thing?
I didn't stop playing GOW 2 because of the ranking system. I stopped because........
3.Quitting especially host quitting in fair games
4.Pairing me with other players in New Zealand and giving them host so I cant leave spawn because of the lag.
5.Overall Failure of TU2
I am telling you COD ranking will be fun for 3 days then you will get tired of it. The current system has a sense of accomplishment and excitement because of bouncing between ranks but has a bunch of flaws that should be fixed not completely eliminated.
