I'm a calm and quiet and peaceful gamer that likes to play games to relax, relieve stress, and have a grand ol' time of fun. However, this game makes my blood boil and want to snap my controller in half.
I have been playing this game for months and have learned the ins and outs of the game's mechanics as well as each of the characters, but I can't seem to ever get past rank 4. Every night that I attempt to play this game, I inevitably fail and end up losing ranks back to 1. It seems that the system is set up so that if you're going to have a rank-up match, you're going to end up fighting someone who's at least 10+ ranks higher than you... Not only that, but if you're going to have a rank-down match, generally speaking, the same exact thing happens. Please tell me how exactly that's even fair? Now, I can understand the need for a challenge, but 10+ ranks higher during a rank-up match? That's not a challenge - it's a slaughter. It should be 2-3 ranks higher - that's a suitable challenge. The matchmaking for this game's ranked fights seems to be rigged IMO and needs to be fixed ASAP or I'm liable to break something.
I was ranked in the top 150 players world-wide for Mortal Kombat (using Sheeva and Baraka), the top 50 best Dhalsim players in the U.S. for Super Street Fighter 4, as well as in the top 200 best players world-wide for Injustice: Gods Among US (in the top 10 among Lex players) and I just can't seem to wrap my head around just how broken KI's ranked system is. It's just so frustrating... :(
