    Ranked requirements are plain ass retarded

    as they are...

    Mastering gods does not mean that you know how to play them, long time players have more then 1 account that they are playing ranked with. Besides that, the requirement handycapps the team as you can't pick for somebody else and half the game is decided in the lobby. Why do I need to have Jesus mastered if I'm not picking for myself?

    So a suggestion:

    - remove the requirement to play ranked from X gods mastered and replace it with X gods owned
    - put up a requirement to play ranked-conquest only if you have X games played in casual conquest (there are shitloads of people who go straight from leveling in arena to ranked conquest while not even knowing basics in conquest, which is a very unfun experience to have to play with them).

    X gods mastered is much more effective than X gods owned. That system doesn't know what role the player wants, but is asking for them to have at least touched them. In fact, the system should ask for more gods mastered than it currently is.

    The second suggestion is valid, but the first half would reverse the entire point.

    Yeah that would be awful. Frankly rank requirements are WAY to lenient as they are, we don't need to make them worst. Honestly you shouldn't even touch rank until you have at least half the gods mastered and 100+ regular games in conquest. Just having the required god amounts are no where near enough

    well 100 would be too much i think lol
    it depends on the players i think like im trying to learn an amount of gods before going to ranked so that i wont end up feeding and making my team lose and also to have some flexibility like if some god i learned was banned or someone else picked it i will pick some other god
    people just master gods quickly with booster provided in starting and then go ranked without learning them and ends up feeding enemy team there should also be requirement to play X amount of matches played in this game mode to enter ranked like you suggested so that players will go and learn the game mode in casual first
    i even went to coop vs ai conquest before entering casual to check out map and camps and how game mode works so that i wont end up doing something i shouldnt i seriously hate when team loses because of me and also dealing with toxic players

    Maybe they should do the games played thing, but gods owned is irrelevant simply because the ultimate god pack exists. All gods owned, might not have ever played then but still owned. Mastering them makes more sense as a requirement, you might not be any good with them but you do have experience playing as them.

    Alternative option - have mastery for a game mode.

    You want to play ranked Conquest? You need the required number of gods mastered IN CONQUEST. They track each god in different game modes now, so it should not be too difficult to do; just put a little "Eligable" section next to each one.

    You want to play ranked Joust? You need to use the same god to get 50 worshippers specifically for Joust.

    Duel can be whatever - your selections are purely on you, so if you want to be that guy who plays nothing but arena and then jump into Duel, have at it!

    Also, it should be at least two gods of each class - coming in with 15 assassins mastered will do no good, but that one I am flexible about.


    Probably not my best thought out idea, but it is something at least...

    I wouldn't even bother with ranked in the first place. Ya, you can get rewards, but they only did that because the ranked population is low. They're not even good rewards to begin with. Ranked players are too salty imo.

    What if they just made it where you have to own all of the class mastery achievements? Then you have 5 gods in all 5 classes mastered. Then:
    A) You have experience with 25 different gods
    B) Youre able to fill whatever roll your team needs (If you actually care about team comp)
    And C) Your god pool won't be limited if your teammates and enemies ban gods you play.
