Warzone 2 EN #ModernWarfare2 need a ranked mode at launch or shortly after otherwise it will be extremely hard to keep people busy for 2 years until the next major release of Call of Duty titles.

In a recent Twitter post, ModernWarzone stated that Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will require a ranked mode at launch to keep the player base engaged until the upcoming title comes two years later. This post has sparked a storm of discussion about the presence of a competitive aspect in the upcoming double releases of the Call of Duty franchise.


Playerbase Wants Ranked Mode for Upcoming Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2

Call of Duty Warzone is considered obsolete by a significant portion of the community and many players are considering waiting for War Zone 2 is from. This is the result of a combination of factors.

One is that Warzone’s current weapon meta is considered extremely biased towards Vanguard weapons. This has led many players who enjoy playing with modern weapons to feel that the game is not suitable for the entire player base.

They feel that the company is making those weapons more powerful to boost sales of Call of Duty Vanguard and weapon blueprints from the store.

Other than that, Warzone’s unofficial skill-based matchmaking makes it harder for ordinary players to enjoy their matches. Based on several stats, Activision prioritizes the kill-death (K/D) ratio as a benchmark for grouping teammates in the lobby. This leads to many casual players with good K/D ratios being pitted against others with much higher skill levels.

Thus, the gaming experience of both types of players is ruined. Casual players feel that the game is much harder for them, leading to frustration after several such lobbies. On the other hand, veterans feel the lobby is too easy for them to get their blood pumping.

@ModernWarzone Make sbmm less punishing for doing good and make a really well ranked game in multiplayer and warzone sorted it’s not that hard

This issue has led players to ask the developers to add a separate ranked mode to the game. The player base believes the game is too tough for casuals if they do well in similar skill lobbies. By doing it right, they will automatically lobby players with much higher experience and skills.

The addition of a ranked mode will clearly separate the player base according to their strength in the game. This seems to be the perfect solution to the aforementioned Call of Duty Warzone matchmaking issue. The match making are then based on their rank level, eliminating the problem the player base is currently facing.


@ModernWarzone Must be at launch. Not after. They’ve been talking about ranked mode for over a year now. Must be done and is a bit sad that it hasn’t made its way yet. One of the biggest developers in gaming and they don’t have a ranked game. Come on everyone! @Duty

The player base believes that the inclusion of the ranked mode should be done at the launch of the game. Warzone 2 will be a brand new game where players have to start with zero progression. So they believe that adding a ranked mode from launch will optimize the success of the upcoming title.


@ModernWarzone Nothing to grind in WZ except personal accolades/camo challenges designed for MP. Put in a ranked mode then reduce SBMM in pubs. Pretty sure there was an article saying they were bringing in a competitive mode or something. But that was a problem from over a year ago.

One fan believes that in addition to the addition of ranked, the presence of a casual mode will be perfect for the upcoming game.

The addition of a casual mode with less strict skill-based matchmaking will complement the ranked mode perfectly as it will group players from a much wider spectrum of skills into the same lobby. Thus, the gaming experience will be much more exciting and keep the player base happy and satisfied.


@ModernWarzone I agree that many players are bored and it would make it better for everyone as you would compete against others who are as skilled as you and be rewarded for playing and winning

The answer from the above Twitter user closes with the playerbase opinion. Not only will casual players enjoy the game, more educated users will also be able to compete with others with similar skills, making their gaming experience much more satisfying and rewarding.


But the presence of a ranked mode must also be accompanied by the presence of a powerful anti-cheat system. Without it, ranked matches will no doubt be swarming with cheaters. This is sure to cause outrage among players who really toil and grind through the ranked levels.


@ModernWarzone They need a balanced weapon set. This over-powered meta thing is so old and stale. Let’s use the weapons we want to use! I didn’t buy avant-garde, so taking the weapons unlock challenges isn’t even an option. How are my weapons maxed out, but still can’t be gunsmiths. ranked as

Fans also think the developers shouldn’t create such a biased gun meta in the next installment of the game. A balanced weapon set will enhance the gaming experience, allowing players to focus on improving their own skills, rather than mowing down every squad that comes in front of them with a TTK (low time-to-kill) pistol.

A more balanced game mechanics will force players to think tactically and this will result in a much more diverse experience in the matches.


With so many fan base players leaving the game, we can only hope the developers will listen to the constructive criticism and implement it in the next title. An exciting and diverse gaming experience will be very necessary to ensure that fans stick around and enjoy the future titles.
