I know I'm 3 days late to the party but I enjoyed the thread, and I wanted to throw in my two cents. Just ignore and carry on. Plus, my ears were burning:

What it needs is a leader-board that isn't a god damn meme which puts 90% of the player base in 10% (11.1%) of the leader-board.

No, no have you actually played ranked mode in Smite? It is filled with the biggest tryhards and toxic people, I've ever encountered in my time playing online games and the reason I quit that game. What first sounds like a great idea just excludes everyone, who is not a hardcore-veteran, and also giving people a brutal time to get into

I haven't played ranked in Smite, but I have played it in Overwatch and I've run into a lot of tryhards and toxic people there. But those types of players exist in non ranked modes as well. I've seen them, in non-ranked Smite, non-ranked Overwatch and Nauts. I mean, I played Heroes of the Storm to get that D.Va skin and even in that limited amount of time I ran into tryhard and toxic players. So if you think toxic and tryhard players mean there shouldn't be a ranked mode, then the current mode should be removed as well cause it has toxic and tryhard players in it. I haven't played any matches vs bots but I bet there's tryhard and toxic people in that mode as well XD

And to add, toxic players in non-ranked Smite is what made me gravitate away from the game lol.

But I still stand by feeling nauts needs an actual comp mode that's separate from the mode it has now. And while I didn't play ranked Smite, I did level up enough gods to be able to participate in it if I ever wanted to.
In Overwatch though, I felt their system let me play ranked mode when I hadn't played the game enough with enough different characters to play ranked mode competently.

Of the two, I felt like the Smite system prepared me better for ranked mode. Mostly because by the time I could play in ranked mode I knew enough about the game to be able to play the main mode Conquest.

I'm not sure who you're directing this at, but I never said this was the reason all the new players left.

Also, a ranked mode, to me, is in no way meant for the casual player. Because it's meant to be for people wanting to play the game in a more competitive way. It wouldn't keep new players around, but it would be a place for more serious players to play so that they had less of a chance to get put on a team with someone who doesn't know what they are doing.

There's lots of ideas out there for various different matchmaking for various different games that use matchmaking.

It was directed at Rybakowsky's remark:

After f2p relase the playerbase grew by 10 times but people still say we don't have enough players for 2 queues.

It did, but it didn't last. :shrug:

Because we didn't got 2 queues.

Oh, I completely forgot to put this in my opening post but if I can edit it I'll do that.

One of the things that happens with the X amount of nauts mastered in the example I gave (Smite) is that in the ranked mode you can ONLY play as the characters you raised to that mastery level. Which is something I really like because then you won't have people in ranked who can say "I can only play 1 character," or just one trick.
