Match Summary Screen Rankings And Red Ranks

Why are survivors in the red ranks at the bottom of the match summary so often?

Three of the matches I have been in this morning have had survivors with red ranks having acquired the least amount of points and being at the very bottom of the list.

    Those ranks mean absolutely nothing (to the point that I don't get why BHVR even has them on your opponents screen).

    All those represent is how much you've played since the last ranking reset. So a baby survivor who has played a bunch of matches this month might be Red while a God survivor who has played longer than you've been alive somehow but just hasn't played this month would be Ash.

    Your actual rank is hidden. No one knows what their or their opponents actual rank is.

    I know ranks mean absolutely nothing but why do I lose pips in rank? no one giving me an answer.

    I like the MMR system. It is much better at matching than it's predecessor. As for the displayed ranks if the listed ranking is for how much you have played why does it go down sometimes after a match?

    It's how much you've played in a sense that you can only rank up those rankings by playing the game during that month. Being ash rank doesn't necessarily mean you have yet to play this month but to get to red rank, you have to have been relatively active in the month as everyone starts at Ash.

    I was under the impression that those pips affect your MMR ranking (the hidden one) but I admit I'm not an expert in this as I'm just going off my understanding. I never cared enough to look all that deep

    Maybe they play a lot with friends to reach red but in solo queue with no information they just do gens. For a survivor reach iri/red, they have to double pip in a lot of matches, which means doing a lot during a match, mainly healing others, do gens and escape. They won't reach red rank without double pip in several matches. Altruism gets the most points.

    I have reached iri1 3 times in solo queue, and certain things can get you more points but don't make you double pip (obsession, self-heal, totems, sabo hooks) so you don't rank up (as far as the monthly grades).

    MMR is purely about escape or dying and is completely separate.
