Ranked mode was just recently introduced in PUBG Patch 7.2 and players are able to play in squads in a new mode that tested their abilities with others with similar skill levels. Replacing Survival mode, Ranked mode gave players a different taste of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS by incorporating tiers and divisions to group players based on Ranking Points but also test the teamwork of friends in their goal to reach a win.
PUBG Ranked: PUBG Corp Reveals No Solo or Duos in Ranked Mode This Season
The news spread like wildfire on the PUBG Reddit when a community manager announced that there is no plan to add in modes Solo and Duos into Ranked mode and that it will stay as Squads for the remainder of the Season.
As fans commented that PUBG Corp are the reason behind their own demise and downfall, the unimpressed community vented their own experiences. Solo players are now having to deal with random players for squad matches and sometimes it just doesn't work.
The decision to leave Solo and Duos mode out of Ranked is confusing. Whether this decision was to match the PUBG Global Championships format where there are only teams, or for PUBG Corp to test out a new mode, players will only find out with the release of Season 8 in the future.
