And I really don't care..I play the game to have fun, not to freak out about being in pointless medal categories.
Gold is not even near the top... just FYI. There are much higher ranks than gold. Platinum, Diamond, Onyx and Champion are all higher. Gold has 6 tiers too, and you are at 5 of 6. Not sure what Rank gets you other than bragging rights, but if you stop at Gold, you are really average to below average of the ranking pecking order.
Bragging rights.HAHA..to be honest I just got to Gold rank on MP and Blitz then stopped playing ranked. Just so I wouldn't drop..What else is there to keep playing it for? in my opinion this rank system needs some work.
That is reasonable, but I thought you were implying that you quit ranked matches because you didn't want to drop rank because you thought you were peaked out at gold. Maybe I misunderstood and wanted to point out that climbing the ladder could be more motivation.
Now what you get for climbing the ladder besides bragging rights and a cooler medal is beyond me. I guess it is just being competitive because heck, competing against other players is the basis of playing against human players instead of AI. You increase and decrease rank in proportion to your opponents rank, so it is cool seeing if you lose and drop a whole rank or something, it was to someone you should have beaten, where if you lose and drop like 5%... they are clearly the favorite.
It would be nice to see some sort of reward based on rank... nothing game changing, but I could see blitz packs, or some sort of skin for a particular unit or something like that.
