Well I’ll be damned..
The Devs have finally decided to actually do something with Ranked PvP!
Season 7 started with Game Update 4.3 which was released on the 5th April. It has now been almost 4 months and they’re only now deciding to tell us the details?!
Ranked players have been asking for details about Season 7 for quite a while now and Bioware have refused to comment until now. What will the rewards be? What are the ranking tiers? When will Season 7 be ending? Will they ever adequately deal with win-traders/hackers? Will they ever fix class balance? It would be nice to see them address these questions and more during the Developer Stream. But realistically, I’m not expecting much from them.
I’m personally not a fan of Ranked PvP in SWTOR because I hate Arena’s so I haven’t done Ranked for a very long time. But, I feel it is quite ridiculous that Bioware has ignored the concerns of Ranked players for so long.
It is typical of them to implement game features half-assed and not do anything to improve them or address problems. So I’m really not surprised it’s taken them so long to say anything about the state of Ranked PvP.
If only we could go back to the glory days of 8v8 Ranked.
Do you do Ranked Arena’s? What do you think of the state of the Ranked scene?
