I want instagib freezetag to be unranked.. that is just for fun =p
I've never understood the ranking system and certainly wouldn't mind if it was removed altogether, all it does is force people to try and get wins and if they are loosing they quit, that is the only thing it does.

this is why people are forever quitting, and not switching to level.
I've just come from a match, my own skill level, 6v6 after we went 2-0 up 4 (count them 4) of the opposing team quit, luckily a few new players came in to level the teams, but it was obvious they were from highter levels as within a couple of minuets the scores were 4-3 against us, scored by the new players. THIS is not fair and I cannot help but think that without the stats the 4 wouldnt have left and it wouldnt have mattered that higher level players came in (luckily one of them then left and we managed to win 5-4)
It is a bitter pill to swollow being on the winning stronger side and then a load quit and get replaced by better players and then being owned untill one of them decides to leave.
