    Honestly not a big fan of the tiered ordinal ranking systems in games. I have 300~ hours in Rocket League and I still don't know whether 'platinum' is higher than 'diamond'. At least in RL there is some semblance of order by using the classic Bronze < Silver < Gold. Dota abandoned its MMR system for the nonsense of 'herald' < 'guardian' < 'crusader' < etc around the same time I stopped playing.

    Chess has survived with Elo's rating system for 50+ years. I can't help but feel like the named ranks serve to enhance the 'operant conditioning chamber' model of F2P games by offering players shiny new badges as they grind and get better.
