Maybe the settings such as constant cross-hairs and 6 shoots in boom and these knew additions could be used only in quick matches. And then for ranked matches the gameplay setting go back to gears 3 i.e no constant cross-hair 2/3 shoots in boom and ? This would then probably mean that the veteran gears who have played since gow1 would play ranked and the newer players or casual players would play quick match. This would probably mean that ranked would be more populated than it is in gow3 and judgemnt would also appeal to casual players. ??
