More exp in ranked and social has a constant map cycle. Oh, and no quit penalty in social.

It depends if you wanna search for a match after 3 rounds or play for a while without worrying about matchmaking. I will play both though ^^

both have dedi.servers but ranked is given priority
ranked uses true skill, social doesn't
ranked starts with 10 real players
ranked lets you choose what map to play
can't join ranked matches.

I'm sure I've left stuff out

Social and Ranked will be on Dedicated Servers. P2P will only be on things like Private matches/ Private Horde, Beast Mode.

Not true.

All matches both ranked and social are on dedicated servers, however ranked gets priority. So if space is limited then social matches go P2P. However when there are available servers, all matches take place on dedicated servers, so neither will have host advantage.

Both will go to P2P should servers go down.

No, both are are dedicated servers with ranked getting priority when spaces is limited for whatever reason.

Ranked is usually more competitive and you are more likely to run into pre-mades in Ranked.
