I was stuck in “E” rank during most of Season 1, and so far in Season 2 as well. I know I need to play and practice more if I want to get good. However, whenever I play ranked mode, I am mostly getting matches with players who are way above my skill level. When I do happen to get matched with someone else who is an E or a D, I generally feel like I have a close match, and I win a decent portion of those matches. But then I get matched with someone who is a B rank, I get destroyed and then the game subtracts from my ranking.
If I’m in the lowest rank, and most active players are in higher ranks, then it seems like a given that I am almost always going to be stuck playing people who are going to beat me.
I think it would be more fair if you didn’t get punished so hard when playing against much stronger opponents. Maybe something like, if your opponent is 2 ranks above you, you don’t lose any stars for losing the match.
