Yeah god knows how bad it is for "feel bads", God forbid we hurt someones feeling by being a high rank. Better yet lets just get rid of ranks completely, that way we are safe of hurting anyones feelings ever
Like this entire thread is based on the premise that cosmic = better player than gold so it is unfair to pair them.
Is it sudden "fair" to pair those same two players when a new season starts?
It is all psychological. The ranking gives no indication of playskill or power level of the deck you have with way it exists in Hex. As I said before it is just a metric for rewarding players for playing Hex.
