Rainbow Six Needs A Better Ranked System, And Here’s Why.

Having reached Plat myself during the Burnt Horizon season, I’ve noticed a lot of problems with the current ranking system. “I’m dropping ranks because playing in Diamond is boring” or “Diamond is all 5 mans” are sentences I hear frequently, and they aren’t wrong.

No, in 35% of my games I dropped 3 to 4 kills, which is barely useful. In the rest of my games, I dropped 7 to 12 kills, depending on the synergy.

What do you think? Am I trippin’ or do I have a point? Let us know in the comment section down below!
