They will change it at the start of season 14 - mark my words. They're losing money by the day and Fortnite is yet again at the top of BR's.Deservedly so. Developers need to wake up to the silent majority facts, the vocal 1% that for sure play your game the most and skew all the metrics devs look at just aren't the masses playing the game. Further having a completely fair and balanced esports style game is fucking boring for most people. I'd sooner watch or play some wild ass sandbox over a precision team 4 shotting a turtle game for the millionth time. Same shit happened to Halo and the developer bought it wholesale and continues that esports push in the maps they design and the modes they offer. At least Respawn seem to be pretty reactive, agile and willing to change quickly e.g. over a split or season. I cannot fault them for trialling different things, as long as they're prepared to course correct and quickly.
Ranked shouldn't be ALGS, but it's exactly like ALGS with the new system. I'm almost in plat 3, but I haven't played a lot this split, cause I can't stand getting a top 5 and gain 5-15 rp. I feel like I'm wasting my time playing Apex Legends right now, so I'm waiting for Respawn to change things back.
