News - Why Ranked Doesn't Suck. On Warzone 2
Rank has been so different compared to regular game modes: it's multiplayer Call of Duty with people who mostly work together; there's a limited choice of only two score streaks; and everyone gets the same limited amount of guns and attachments to choose from. The CDL rules really are strict. You just picked up this game; it's a super good mode to just get right into if you want to be competitive right off the bat, but it'll be a lot harder to level up your guns for the use of other modes.
Ranked sniping meta
It's mostly the assault rifle 56, or Vasnaf SMG. US snipers are a major minority. I get it though—how can we be competitive when the drawbacks of using it are so bad? My God, advancing two objectives requires either swapping between our secondary weapons or just moving like a slug because of weapon weight, but we're likely dead.
We miss our first shot or don't get a shot off at all before getting killed. Up there, it's not a very good statistic for doing damage, especially since snipers don't even have the capability of spreading damage to multiple enemies in a team gunfight. There's no spray and pray aspect. On the plus side though, let's go, shit you were D2 good If you are a sniper who knows when to push, fall back, rotate, keep it here on callouts, and always be in position before the enemy does, then you might just be a properly ranked sniper.
We help change up the dynamics of the game by always messing up our enemies formations; they're kept on their back foot because we forced them to pick up the slack and pace after we downed their teammates using a tiny window of an angle. Players make a ton of mistakes when they are pressured into limited options and will eventually overlook the visuals and the audience.
By moving too quickly, the opposing team also knows they will have to further minimize available shot angles. When capturing objectives, an added plus is the psychological effect that one-shot kills have on people; it makes them upset, stock up, stop, and can rattle their game. Just a little bit all right, come on.
Finally trusting teammates
I've placed last and lost on previous games, and somehow I was still getting griefed on by the other team, just for sniping today and Finally, it's very nice to be able to challenge a little more on my teammates, as they take it a little more seriously and generally have a little bit more skill thanks to the skill-based matchmaking involved with ranked matchmaking.
There's only one BF who could protect them; their call-outs are like having a masculine Alexa pretend to be a UAV for one minute. It's also exciting when your dead teammates are so stoked to make sure you kill the other guy by shouting out their location, and I can watch my six a little less when I know there's a teammate behind me.
They usually react pretty heavily when they die, which is quite alerting.
Divisions vs skill
Lower-ranked players with higher steel levels seem to always match with people way above their division. My only issue is that I feel the lower-ranked guys should receive a much bigger reward in Sr. All right, I'm just saying if we are batting in the same division, the rewards are not nearly as great to put us in that division.
I think that if we are automatically queued into a lobby with teammates and opponents with much higher divisions, the lower rank should be awarded even more. Sr., Nice Shot. Otherwise, maybe you should stick to a plus-one or minus-one division bracket for ranked matches. I don't know; it seems like the divisions don't necessarily reflect what a player's actual skill level is anyway, and as it went down, it leaned towards just meaning that someone plays a lot more when they are in a higher ranked division.
There are definitely many lower-ranked and even bronze-level players who play as sweaty and at a high level as crimson and iridescent peeps, the only caveat being that they haven't played as much to achieve those nicer-looking icons. And so they promptly sent me an invite after the game. I am having a blast in ranked, as it involves so much more teamwork.
Sniping is ridiculously fun in this mode, and I'll be looking forward to playing much more, so subscribe and check out my articles when they're out later
