How should a ranking system work?
« on: November 21, 2016, 02:32:22 pm »
If we go by standard fighting game formula.

You build up points to level up in tier and in ranked play you are generally vs people of equal or slightly greater rank to you (but you have the option to simply vs any or much higher on the match maker). Everything is measured in wins and losses. And when you are about to rank up, the other players are warned that if you win you rank up.

Naturally the higher the rank you beat, the greater your win points. But if you lose you lose points relative to who you vs as well.

Anyone know how moba like overwatch and lol and smite do it? Because they must have individual player rankings despite the coop nature of the game. What issues do they have?
