You asked for it, and we’re happy to announce we’re bringing it! Ranked matchmaking is coming to the PC VERSION of the Battleborn open beta. Beginning in a few moments, you’ll see a new option when you click on Versus Public, there will be a new “Ranked” option you can select. By choosing ranked play, your matches will be scored on an ELO rating system and you’ll be providing invaluable data and feedback into how Battleborn’s ranked play will be structured when the game is live on May 3rd. Ranked matches will be decided by team vote on which mode, Meltdown or Incursion, is played.
All players in the ranked queue will start at the same ELO rating. As you participate in more matches and your ELO rating either rises or lowers, you’ll be put in future PvP matches with players that are closer to your own personal skill level. What this means is that you’ll be more consistently matched against players that are your speed, resulting in more competitive matches and a more even skill level throughout.
Simply by playing in ranked matches, you’ll be providing important data that will be used to help balance Battleborn’s PvP and keep it fun for all. In addition to that, we welcome your feedback on this new feature in our forums. Tell us your thoughts, and let us know what you think about our new ranked play feature!
Console players fear not -- the intent is not to keep this a "PC only feature", but merely to begin our testing there. We'll disclose more info on the console side when appropriate.
Thanks in advance for your help in testing this important feature of the Battleborn Open Beta!
