    I need to vent a bit.

    I had my share of online gaming, also at competitive levels for quite a damn long time. BUT!
    I have never to this day raged as much as I do in Splatoon.
    This is a rage inducing game and should be forbidden to sell to people other than Dalai Lama who have patience that of a god.
    Why you ask?
    I just went down from rank A (which took me a week of casual playing to get to) to rank B+ because I'm playing with buffoons. I am willing to bet my damn bonsai would play the game better than these co-players. I cant tell you how many times I had retards at B+ trying to splat as much surface as possible in a damn tower or rainmaker games... And talking about rainmaker, noone in my team EVER goes for it. Im literally carrying the whole team 99% of the time. Normally I do in average around 10-15 kills while my mates have 2 maybe 5 and more than double death to kill ratio.
    And what is the best part ? Disconnects and losing 12 rank points 3 times in a row. The game wont even wait for the connection to reestablish. Noooo. It just DCes you literally 2 seconds after (probably) lost packages in connection.
    God I am literally biting off my sofa when that happens. And its really not rare. My connection is fine though.
    It lowers your rank points when server disconnects too :D

    Anyway, god Im loving this game but ranked play is ebola in a gaming form.

    That sounds like every team-based competetive online game ever.

    Thats the thing, I went into this thinking its a game where I relax and really enjoy it.
    But oh god how I was wrong.
    You'd expect that at rank A people know what Rainmaker is and how to use it but....no not really.
    And seeing people with 0 kills 15 deaths is on daily routine.
    I never had such experience in CSS, CS GO, Overwatch, or other (different genre) games when playing at such level. At C ok, I understand but rank 50 and A rank, cmon...
    I'm not saying Im the best player (at all) but it is a fact that I am carrying every 9 matches out of 10 at minimum. :(

    So what are you recommending me if I want to rank up? Go ape mode like the rest of the team?

    I had this issue when it came to Rocket League, going ranked matches would keep lowering me and angering me.

    I decided it wasn't worth it to get upset over some sort of rank no one really cares about. Since then, I just play unranked matches and have fun!
