y does custom players think they good cause they are lvl 60+ in custom games. but if they go to rank they are like lvl 2 then they cry about rank games takes forever to find... i mean all the excuses, then you got some that thinks cause they go on a crazy win streak in custom they think they are above their heads...
whats wrong with this custom players these days.
i mean u dont see me tryin to tell everyone im NUMBER ONE IN 2V2 CHAMPIONSHIP. and being #1 in 2v2s RANK GAMES > CRAZY WIN STREAK IN CUSTOM GAMES. THANKS YOU

No 1 said there good and i bet the only reason my most people win in ranked is because there opponents team mate is garbage i play with my friend so im not stuck with some noob. at the end of the day uour still playing somebody else and for all you know you could be playing the worst people on the game in ranked so stop moaning.

I agree with you van Zan.

If people thought they were so good they would be in ranked play. Using the "I can't play with my friend" in ranked excuse is B.S. Sure, it means you and your friend make a good team, but a good player, without your friend, it does not make.

Being good at custom matches with your friend when you're both on microphones is completely different than being good in ranked matches where you can't rely on having a skilled partner with a microphone (not to mention ranked 1v1).

That being said, games are meant to be fun, so if players have more fun in custom matches, then that is where they should be. But, i tend to agree with van Zan that 200win streaks(or however big) in custom are irrelevant.

If everyone who played custom matches stopped crying about not being able to play with their friend and switched to ranked 2v2, it would make getting a match that much easier. Who cares if you are stuck with a noob for a match and lose every once in awhile, what is so wrong with that? Anyways, once you play 5-10 matches your in a league way above noobs and will never see them.

This all sounds like a thinly veiled desperate attempt to lure custom match players to ranked matches. I understand the motive.

I doubt however that most custom match players even visit the forum at all to begin with. If you want to win them over however, one would have to bring some sort of tangible benefit for only playing 25 min. 1945 1v1 on the same maps or 2v2 with a stranger that might not even play coop or even has his mike on.

The "you suck if you do not play ranked" statement is not going to win many people over I think.

Ranked games in RUSE means what actually? Who really cares about what "rank" one has in RUSE. What real benefit do "ranked matches" bring compared to having coop fun with a friend in your spare time?

Rank chasing in RUSE is somewhat akin to achievement chasing on the Xbox 360 or Prestige chasing in COD n.

To put it nicely, it attracts a certain kind of people. The "you suck if you do not play ranked" statement kind of says it all.

Tried the ranked 2v2 this morning a bit, and you had to wait longer for laggier games with folk who generally didn't work as a team, so don't think I'll head back there again. It's just more fun playing 1v1 (ranked, as that seems to be where all the 1v1 games are) or 2v2 unranked ('cos folk just seem to be more cooperative minded).

Sorry Deton/DW - but waiting 5 minutes for a 25 minute game that takes 40 minutes because of a laggy connection with people on comms who don't use them just ain't fun - leastaways not with the alternatives. Good luck getting the ranked players together though, and pummeling me whenever we bump into each other in 1v1 games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

OTHERWISE the beef of whos better which in every games has will never be solve.. unless you play mhfu that game is all coop and even in that game.. people still tend to say whos better by showing who got better armor . its human instinct to be competitive. and the developers made the leaderboard to solve it.
In like manner 200 win streaks (or however big) in ranked matches are just as irrelevant.

and axe khan is right there is nothing to think for a second can u imagine if me and you went on a 2v2 team unrank streak i bet you we double what these custom wh0re will do they got 56 107 we do 200 + u get what im saying 60min games LOL you know hw many points we get and 20 min begining cease-fire LOL

I have only played 3 ranked 2v2 games and two 2v2 unranked games. I agree completely with you, 1v1 is the way I enjoy the game best. But I do think that 2v2 ranked would be so much better if the custom players switched over to ranked.

As a rule, I avoid 2v2 custom like the plague.

Recently, I was wiped out in a game when I pushed hard on one guy, and his friend sent bombers and a recon plane my way. I'm not complaining that he did it, or that my teammate wasn't using pressure either (also my teammate did not have a microphone)

I WAS mad when the dude sent me a message after the match saying "get good"

I mean, come on, really? It made me sad/angry/frustrated when a game with such a limited community has to be made worse just because some teenager is on an ego trip.

But it's not all bad, most ranked and 1v1 matches have been very good. People say "gg" or message me and I return the courtesy.

lol there was that one time my teammate dropped in a 2v2 match, so I steam-rolled the other team and beat them 45 minutes later with total victory. "good game guys http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif" I said.
"**** YOU ****ING HOMO"

Although if you ranked up to training mate, our little experiment last night (this morning for you lol) would have worked a treat...

If you have 3 mates who also like to play 2v2 ranked, and all of the same rank band, you can just search at the same time and get put into the same match.

It's not foolproof, especially if more people are doing it, but it generally works. But I think the higher level 2v2 players will tend to not suck like the low level ones anyway...

Axe99
10-10-2010, 02:59 PM
Aye, totally agree States - but when I was trying to rank up with you guys, I had a number of games that were all laggy, and not once did I get a partner who spoke or even cooperated with me. It's a lot of pain to try and catch up with you guys.... I may still do it, mind, but I had a lot more fun the instant I went back to 1v1.

I have played ranked but prefer custom for a few different reasons.
1: I can choose the map and choose my faction depending on the map.
2: 25min isnt long enough. Most the time your opponet hides and tries to spam arty and bombers. No action. In my opinion it doesnt get good until about the 20min mark when you have a good source of income and advance units.
3:I like larger maps, thus I play 2v2 more than 1v1. You can choose your team mate in custom.

Waited 45 mins yesterday arvo to not get a game in 2v2 ranked. Played lots of GT PSP and Medievil, which as fun, but there's a real risk of ranked 2v2 (at least on the PS3, and if there's no patch released for the friends thing) going the 'no-one's using it so no-one uses it' way of things.

I find that more people play custom than ranked. I'm an alright player but not very good.
I have played one ranked match and did win but I find no fun in being steamrollered by other players so I tend not to play the hardcore ranked matches.
I think that people should play wherever they find fun (for me playing with a mate on private online against various AI factions) although I do agree that a large win streak in custom matches can be irrelevant particularly if played against AI.

01-09-2011, 07:33 AM
Let people play what they want to play instead of thinking your only good if you have play ranked... When i play 1v1 i play ranked however in 2v2 i would rather be with someone i can communicate with and trust.

I play games to have fun not to be someone in a leader-board. If people think they are good and they play custom then you can just beat them can't you. Don't start flaming the whole community for a few select people who think they're amazing because they havn't lost in custom for 10 games.

Well thanks for the resurrection of a flame bait thread.

Ranked isn't hard, I was able to get the 10 win streak achievement in one day and I only played against two people. And I got the achievement BEFORE I got to Veteran league. This was mostly because my opponets were using the same tactic every game, i.e. send paratroopers to my HQ and everytime I kept beating them.

The majority of your post contradicts the first statement... The only challenge to getting a 10 win streak before Veteran league against 2 opponents who use the same tactic is hoping no one disconnects and resets your rank. I think stating that "ranked isn't hard" at this stage may be a touch pre-mature...

I have NO problem with players enjoying ANY mode that they are the most comfortable with for any reason..

However, I will tell you straightup, that RANKED matches are where you will find the most challenging games and the BEST players.

It just fact y'all.

So, if you think u a bada$$ player, hop on ranked and prove it. Be patient and work your way up to the higher leagues. You will see.....
