Anet recently added a leaderboard for Qualifying Points, something to appease the pvp community that has been barking for some kind of ranking and elo system.
Ace of Spades, currently the number 1 EU player on the leaderboards voiced his concerns:
"Sry for my poor English, I’m rank1 on the EU, and i think that they should’ve not made this ladder, it’s a bad joke, as you can see only few teams are playing PT, casual teams have almost 0 chances to win.
The QP’s ladder shows that Anet made a poor decision… i knew from BWE2 that the tournament system was a bad idea, the concept behind it it’s bad, and you can’t do much about it.
They wanted to be different for the sake of being different, and that’s bad. I know that it’s easy to complain, so now i’m gonna explain how they could’ve done better, with less effort.
a) hot join, 5v5, unranked
b) soloQ, ranked
c) premadeQ, ranked
a) soloQ ladder, reset once a year
b) premadeQ ladder, reset every 1-2 month/s
a) A monthly tournament, where the top X teams of the premade ladder are invited to play.
This tournament system was a kitten nightmare, so many bugs, so much time spent coding for nothing, so much effort for have a bad format. They wanted to be different, and they just ended up doing something overly complicated.
If they were coding a simple elo system and not tournaments, we would be playing with ladders, private servers and ratings already."
