    "There will also be no battle records kept for this mode, so whether you win or lose, it doesn’t matter. Just sit back and play." ~ smashbros.com :scared:

    I really wish that they would include world rankings in this game and I think a lot of people would find it really cool to see where the ranked in the world. I would be willing to wait about 2 extra years for this feature although I know they could add it a whole lot quicker than that... It's just that was one thing I was really hoping it would have and really looking forward to...

    "We’re planning a number of services that make use of Wi-Fi, but we’ll reveal them gradually with the other modes. Enjoy."
    ~ smashbros.com :smilewinkgrin:

    I can see them having a free play mode that didn't count for rankings, but I still think it would be really awesome to see how you rank compared to the world and I think a lot of people would agree with me on this.



    This is my idea now for them to have a ranking system? Make the fight matchups better, and prevent annoying people/cheaters from ruining the online experience:


    -Rankings should be kept for online battles that are against anyone, unless you choose ahead of time to not count rankings for that battle.
    -You could challenge specific people by there rank if they had challenges turned on
    -When you entered a fight you would be paired with whoever is online and is closest to you in rank and location
    -While in a fight if one player disconnects in any way they will automatically forfeit couting as a loss for them and a in for their opponent
    -After a fight your rank goes up/down depending on if you win or lose and the distance between your and your opponents ranks


    The advantages:

    -People in fights will be as close to your rank as possible so if you have a high rank you won't be fighting new/bad players
    -People won't go on it to mess around and annoy people because if they do their rank will go down putting them at the bottom with the other people that do the same stuff
    -People could see how they ranked in the world
    -You could still have the option to play just for fun so people could pratice fighting without actually losing rank
    -They could set up online tournaments and a lot of things that work off of this...
    -If people have mods/cheats they could be "reported" and have a temporary/permanent suspension from the online play except against their friends...

    Why is everyone making such a big deal about this? There are rankings, games with friends are ranked games. Even if they weren't, who cares?

    so if you could choose between online co-op, shareing pics and all that. and to see what rank you are and who's the best ranking one (10 wins, 0 loses?)

    There are not world ranking only rankings amongst your friends. I think the ranking system should be based on who you win against not just wins and loses. For instance, You are ranked 100 000th and you beat someone ranked 200 000th your rank would hardly go up but if you are ranked 200 000th and you beat someone ranked 100 000th then your rank would go up majorily

    I have enough wii friends and more friends that are getting wii's, but seriously (on melee anyways) I can beat them all 95% of the time... So I want to play against world players based on their rank not just random people that are sometimes good and sometimes suck...

    Well I would have competition if it matched you with people around your rank... and I still think that a lot of people would like to know where they rank in the world...

    I mean seriously that's the good thing about any game is it's highscores (the competition and if it's worldwide it's that much better...

    I 4 one like not having rankings i mean come on if you really want to tell someone tell them the truth and instead of getting all mad because you have so many lost you restart your games just to get a new start it prevents things like that from happening.

    If there was no multiplayer on brawl at all I then yes, I would rather play pong w/ Online ranking... I find anything without any competiton very boring... it's just the same old thing all the time...

    ^No competition? Do you just play the computer all day long?

    I have about 20 people online and about 10 people in real life that I am waiting to play Brawl with.

    like I said before the rankings wouldn't be based on wins/loses, they would be based on who you beat so if you reset your rankings you would just be starting at the bottom again...

    No I don't play the computers because they are boring but like I said I win against my friends 95% of the time on melee and I don't think they'll suddenly start owning me on brawl...
