Unlike non-standard maps in the regular queues, hoops, hockey, and dropshot take a different skill set and tactics and would not do well together. A ranked queue for each, absolutely. Heck, make each "casual ranked", where the rank is visible but you can still leave matches without a ranked ban (you'd just eat a maximum rank loss, visibly.)

Yeah, mixing the modes is a bad idea, just like Mutator Mashups was a bad idea for a permanent mode. Mutators are great, but only if we've got a Server Browser wherein we can just hit up servers with the mutators we want to be playing. Changing them all the time does hurt that "muscle memory" they go on about.

I've added some language into the original post about a ranked mode. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

Real community servers would alleviate a ton of the issues on Rocket League. CS:GO has both dedicated and private servers, and it's always seemed to work great for them. It's a much larger community than Rocket League now, but it wasn't always huge.

Always felt Labs needed 1v1 and 2v2's options. Maybe they should do it like you have to select two playlists out the 3 since it has less players.

This is the excuse everyone is using to keep non standard maps in ranked. It requires a different skill set to help one improve.
