An underrated issue with this year’s ranked season was the difference in difficulty for ranked season. (Division Series vs World Series for example) I think they need to just do it where could can only face your division to where the difficulty is the same so it makes sure of an even matchup in terms of skill.
Someone had the idea of ending each month in the seasons with a playoff for each division comprised of the best 4-8 teams. Then having each division champ play in a playoff. Live streaming would be great for revenue.
