thanks for asking the question.
I'm not playing ranked very much because i 'm not very interested to reach top 10 and the queues are too long when you reach top 50.
Also, there is something that is lacking in ranked. I don't know what but this is simply boring to play it.
Agreed with the simply boring part, also though I would join the conversation for this since I have played Infinity wars many months now not all the time just when I feel like it really. However to ranked I do find it very boring to play and I can make nice deck for ranked which popped me up to 1.4k rating easily then I just went no thanks cant be bothered to go any higher its boring. Haven't played after I got my ratting back to that 1.4k during the reset of the ranked leader board.
For me I find that its a match type where the variety of deck ideas, your own combinations and style do not apply because it is a case of this is what works I will use this thus everyone else doing it. So overall you end up with a bunch of people using same deck, same style and same everything lol because it is put into a tier and have a high effectiveness.
Yes that great who wouldn't want to have highly effective deck that what everyone wants to be able to build and use which is fair play but its the same deck type over and over with similar cards used. We have what now over 500 hundred cards to select from is it and out of it something like 100 - 150 maybe is the cards everyone will use in ranked maybe less don't know just a guess.
Other cards should be brought into that variety so that its not that 100 - 150 over and over and instead that sudden discovery where you go wow if I do this with this card and that this outcome. Not here my ability deck I am going to have mass death, lighting etc.. and the next person going yep mass death, lighting and then is becomes tiered someone see they go yep ability deck does super good in ranked I will use that.
Wont rant on any more than this cause I can go on forever with this but me to it is variety and deck variety so not sure if anyone is on the same wavelength as me and understands what I mean. In addition a problem is some cards are just a card if anyone understand what I mean with that but yea some are just a plain card to me personally all cards should be viable but then power creeping comes along.
