    First impression on current iteration of Ranked Play
    IGN: gurzy

    Problems and Suggestions:
    1. Dodging
    2. Dragons Refuge and Beta Station
    3. Level Requirement
    4. Rating Gain/Loss
    Dodging

    Currently you can manipulate to a certain extent ranked outcomes by dodging games you know you're more than likely to lose and attempt a different favorable outcome a few times and not get severely punished for it. It is very much an exploitable feature and needs to be more unforgiving to dissuade future players from that sort of behavior.

    Solutions: Slight decrease in rating and 15 min/30 min/60 min timeout strikes. After 3 strikes you cannot play ranked for "X amount of day/s" or Low priority queue status given. The strikes reset every 24 hours.

    Dragons Refuge and Beta Station

    Have ranked allow both maps as it brings an interesting dynamic on which Hypers to ban and which Hyper comps to pick depending on the map chosen.
    Level Requirement

    A level requirement of 15-20 is what I'm thinking in terms of accessibility to the Ranked Function with respect to the original number of Hypers required. This game is very easy to pick up as opposed to other MOBAS so not having too big of a level requirement but not low enough (Level 5 for example) seems like a good middle ground for players to experience.

    Rating Gain/Loss

    Keeping the Rating system for a win/loss marginally static. So +300 for winning/-300 for losing . (Note, the specific number gain/loss isn't what I'm proposing).

    Overall the experience was mixed. I've had some good games where both teams were fairly balanced and I've had games where it's clearly lopsided by seeing familiar veterans together while I'm pitted with players just coming into the game where heavier lifting is required.

    Thanks for reading!

    I REALLY hope you guys are gathering data about which hypers are getting banned because that is some great feedback on what needs rebalancing.

    I'm gonna make a suggestion here and create a new topic as well about it.
    I'm a content creator (Youtube and Twitch) and the topic that i'm going to talk about is unanimous:

    Only Solo mode on Ranked sucks

    Why *only solo mode* on Ranked sucks?
    That is simple:
    I don't know about your games in ranked, but in my experience (every match) every one wants to play Specialist or Assassin or Striker, these three roles and only these.
    They don't want to play Tank, don't want to play Bruisers or even less support.
    Who is going to play these classes on every match? Myself and Myself only.
    Even if I'm the first pick, I KNOW FOR SURE, even if I ask gently, that my teammates is not going to pick any of these.

    You guys could say: "We can win with 4 Specialist, 4 Strikers, 4 Assassins", of course you can, I will not deny it.
    But, your winning odds against a good composition team is abismal.

    We need a duo queue at least.

    I'm aware that our population is not high enough to have a full 4 player queue, BUT we need AT LEAST duo queue, do you know why?

    Duo queue is more fun.

    I and my duo is going to play at least one of these classes that anyone wants to play, we will have an engager, a tank, a support.
    It's not going to be so infuriating to play with the same people doing the same mistakes and bad comps...

    We don't have enough players yet and we can not do anything about it!

    A lot of players that reached me (my friends and my viewers) they all are not willing to play ranked anymore, because it's not fun.
    Why will they lower their sanity in playing a game that everyone is selfish and pick "what they love" rather than "what the time needs"?
    They are better off playing another moba that have a decent player base and a decent matchmaking with option to play with friends.

    And do you know what is the worst??

    LEVEL 15 PLAYER can REALLY play RANKED?

    I saw a Level 20 player doing things that only newbies would do, and he was a level 20 player.
    So... howmuch time can someone reach level 15?
    Is it really enough time?
    Is this person really capable of joining ranked mode?

    IMHO, no he is not and he will never be capable of playing ranked mode on level 15.

    And we can have another problem with this level 15 requirement:

    Smurfs, trolls and throwers

    It's so easy to make an account on a free game and reach level 15!
    For example, if I don't like the A person and I know that person is queuing, what can I do to f*** that person's game?
    I can queue in my smurf and if I'm in his team I'm gonna troll and throw the game...

    You can report that person right?
    Yeah, but, do Hyper Universe have some kind of device that can track the persons unique PC ID?
    Because, if not, that troll is going to be free and is going to create a nightmare for the playerbase.

    Another thing that I want to address:

    We need some kind of sound effect AND a text pop out saying something like:

    "BLUE TEAM BAN PHASE"
    "RED TEAM BAN PHASE"

    That way everyone will notice that the BAN PHASE has begun and which team's phase is.

    That is all I want to adress about ranked mode.
    If I could only pick one of these topics, I would pick DUO QUEUE at the very least.

    We have a lower population in this game, IF we do not do something soon, the population is going to lower even more...

    Regards.

    Hi,
    I won half of my placement match (that mean i did 5 lose and 5 win) and i was set on rookie rank ... isn't it a little rude ? I think the placement match should be more cool with first rank we got (i mean with 50% WR => silver, less than that => bronze and upper => gold for exemple)
    Anyway how many point i need to go to bronze ? to silver ? and to gold ? thanks for your answer

    1. Please increace individual hyper s level in order to play ranked battle, not only based on the total account level.
    2. The search time is so long. I have no idea this situation is just on me or everyone. Hope this game can have more people to play!
    3. Please let the teammates to show their pre picks before their turn. And mix the bans into pick turns.
    4. Love Hyper Universe!
