what if we had a seperate ladder per race

Posts: 3,485
Im thinking 1 for each race and then a random one. I say this because i for one dont wanna ladder as any of the other 2 races because i dont wanna see my ladder rank plummet after working so hard to get where i am. I think this is probably something a lot of other players face when they wanna explore other options in the game. i know unranked play is coming in hots but i think it would be pretty cool from a customer standpoint to have ur own seperate ladders score for each race. you could even keep just the one profile but if u ladder as say toss it wont effect ur rank as zerg. I mean we didnt all buy this game to only play 1/3rd of it

really? hmm cool legit smurfing I go. Random bronze, Silver+ every other race...woot.

it's a bad idea for that simple reason.

having different ladders for every race is no different then when you get two folks who are Diamond in 2v2 random yet mysteriously are bronze/silver when teamed together.

the number 1 reason why blizzard will probably not do this is b/c if you're that dedicated to rounding out your skill, or even find a need to, chances are you will probably spend the extra money on another account.

does this suck? sure, it does. but blizz is a company, and companies are after money..bottom line, can't really blame them

What's up with all these haters?

+1 I think it's a great idea.

Screw clan support, screw exp, and screw unranked ladder.
I want what OP wants.

As a random player, no.

People in masters/ GM have a greater scope and ability in regards to macro micro and harass, this knowledge does not change simply because they change race. There is no reason for this. A player at high level should know all races upgrades and abilities as is, there is no reason for this at all especially with unrank option in hots.

This is unfair for people in lower ladders, it allows people to ex) play with toss and only cheese.

Have fun watching bronze and silver get cheesed by higher ranked players...

Terrrrrible idea, sorry, I see where you were going but this would be bad!

Then they would get promoted out of the low leagues and up to where they belong.
