Looking for Feedback on a Ranked Pro Option
We have a system that we want to run past all of you in the community in regards to when Ranked Pro mode is available. Please let us what you think in the replies.
- System checks for the number of players online in a region that are qualified for Ranked Pro. (Diamond tier or above)
- System then compares that number vs a set threshold/number of players needed to unlock.
- If it exceeds the threshold the mode will unlock and become available for play.
- Once it drops below that threshold it will put the mode back into a locked status.
- The locking/unlocking would be represented by either a progress bar that fills up or an icon that lights up on the front end menu letting players know when it is or is not available. Another possibility or addition to the previous messaging could be an in game broadcast that goes off letting players know when it has unlocked.
This would allow for Ranked Pro to control itself and only open when the population levels are high enough to support the mode being open, and also allowing more players with different life schedules to have the opportunity to play. We will be looking through and gathering player feedback until early next week. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thank you everyone!
