they need to improve the ranking system.

And not just Kills and Deaths but also crazy stuff like a list of spree's and weapons used with them and weapon stats per player and everything. Good way to find out whose been spamming the grenades or SPAS.

Tcon uses a 'true skill' ranking system to determine match ups. Its just not displayed so that people don't DC all the time.

well, the thing is, the rank doesnt always mean the players who have the final rank are good; most are glitchers hackers or just played alot. But when they play alot, theyre more experienced. Or sometimes, if a pro starts a new account, they can get the last rank pretty fast. I dont know. I think they should leave it the way it is. Idrc aslong as they dont have ytou lose points.

Kills / Deaths
Score + Total Time Played
Wins and Losses

Just like Call of Duty.

Seriously, this game is gonna be so similar, they should just copy the way the CoD devs do their leaderboards.

Rank has nothing to do with how skillful you are. It only shows that you:

1. Played long enough to aquire said rank.


2. Hacked it.

Earned legitly, it might be a good indicator, but it is far less acurate than even K/D's and W/L's (which are still innaccurate).

Ok, since people seem to be confused....

The Conduit has TWO ranking systems.
One is a hidden true ranking system that tracks your many stats and it is used to set up the matchmaking.

The Second is designed to mostly reflect how long you have played, but influenced by how well you perform.
This is the public rank that you see.

The first is hidden so that nobody will manipulate it, to insure that match up quality is the best it can be. and I am 100% behind this logic.

Then your logic is 100% wrong.

There is only 1 ranking system; the rank itself.

You get points by killing, and more points by getting killstreaks and completing objectives.

It does not indicate how good you are whatsoever.

And the hidden stats mean nothing, since other people can't see them.
