Thought it was originally easy to move up the ranks, but now I'm coming across some very skilled players that impress me. Assuming that they aren't cheating, my win/loss ratio at Ranked 8 is maybe 1 in 8, this in both 1.5 Original and 2.2 Escalation. I know about capturing the first 1-2 spots, but I'm trying to find the right balance between all out capturing spots and being more defensive (both air/ground guns). Just seems like I've hit a brick wall now that I've reached Ranked 8. I'm trying to balance output and all of a sudden I get overran by forces twice my amount.
