We know ND is integrating some sort of ranking system that isn't solely based on time played like the normal 1-60 or 1-80 rankings.
Now we don't know exactly how they are implementing this into the match-making, yet, and we all hope they will make it right. However, we shouldn't be here to discuss all the specifics on how they should use this rating since that is their own decision and that discussion will not be worthwhile.
Although, I DO believe we need this player rating VISIBLE to everyone, and hopefully you can see another player's rating without having to load their stats.
Couldn't agree more. Hopefully this new ranking is based on skill (ala Halo 2). If this turns out to be the case then surely it should be firmly a part of every aspect of matchmaking.
Although it's possible that it's only part of new "ranked" playlists.
