So i’ve been thinking of a ranking system, which would give any future Halo a huge replay value, and I came up with a mix beetwen Halo 3s and Reach’s Ranking systems.
Why Halo 3s ranking system? Rember Halo 3 beeing the most played game in 2009, the ranking system required skill and people were always trying to climb that 1 to 50 ladder, that gave the game the addicting feel (mostly for the competitive players).
Halo 3 had Deranking and Boosting which ruined the experience is there something that can fix that? This will be fixed by adding Halo Reach’s Arena ratings, the top 50% ratings will get trueskill to go up, that way bad players that are getting carried every game won’t get their trueskill to go up, and then without boosting there won’t be any point for deranking.
Why Halo Reach’s ranking system? Lets use this instead of exp, cR is gained every game even if you lost, and it can be used to buy armour and stuff it’s fun, it shows dedication over skill which is what the casuals like.
So how is this casual and competitive friendly? If you don’t like Ranked, you still have lots or ranks to achieve, and cR to gain, the biggest Sargent rank could require half a million cR (500000 cR), now lets say that you reached a 10 in a ranked playlist, and you have lots of total cR, you can either get your trueskill to 20 or get another 10 in different playlist for the next rank, here is were it gets more replaybility than the Halo 3 ranking system.
I reached 50 what is there now to do, do i just keep farming cR? You could do that, or you could work on another 50 in a different playlist, which will get you to another rank, same thing if you got a 35 or a 45.
cR system, does it mean that there will be an armoury to buy stuff? Sure this system will have the best fetures of Halo 3 and Halo Reach.
I got inspired from the HC ranks: http://halocharts.com/images/ranks/ranktable.pgn
I thought that having those in a future Halo game, would make that game have more replay value than the call of duty ranking system.
Guys do you support this or are you against it, please tell me what you think!
