Do Ranks Really Matter?

#1SakiruHarumiPosted 3/1/2012 9:24:26 PM

I beat a 9th ranger, and I'm a rookie. 

Does the ranking system online really depict how good a person is, or how often they win?

They don't really matter to be honest.

Well, I bet someone, who is 1-5 lord/ranger/whatever will put up a fight at least.

9th isn't high at all. It's the ranking you get after Fighter.

Anyone who is 4th lord or higher will put up a decent fight and know some damaging combos.

On the other hand, there are a ton of "Beginners" who just never play ranked (or reset their records). These guys can be pretty deceiving and will often body 5th and 6th lords.

Sometimes you have people who never play a ranked battle past fighter, so you will come across people who are only ranked that or down to rookie, who are very skilled and know how to touch of death and exploit their characters full potential. I think those people just like fighting lower ranked people unless they change their search functions to Any when it comes to Rank.

There are a lot of exceptions among lower ranks, but typically a cosmic lord is better than a 9th lord.
Obama's signing of the NDAA has cemented him as the single worst president in American history.

I'm a 9th lord. But only because I got tired of being a beginner. I've beaten high lords like 2nd and 3rd before. They're a good challenge for me. I don't care about rank.

Ranks matter.
They determine who you fight when you set the parameters for skill to same.

Even the biggest stars in the universe are dwarfed in comparison to the size and power of the human spirit.
