Recently, the Council of Setons has approved the Equilibrium balance mod to become ranked! Your rating will change as a result of playing it as long as all the other settings are suitable for a ranked game.
This may sound concerning, but the reason it got approval is because it was decided that map choice influences your chances of winning and inflating rating more than playing eq or not, so its sufficiently similar to playing any regular faf game.
As always, please do leave any feedback on the Equilibrium sub-forum, we will be sure to read it.
We hope that you enjoy playing it as much as we do! We will also be continuing our frequent patches, with a patch just released.
