As John Carmack and Company always said:

"When it's done"

Actually, that works out better for me, personally.
My wife and I are leaving Florida for Maryland for a family reunion on the 13th, and we will be gone for a week. If it is released next month, that will be perfect timing for me.

Sorry, BLOTTO, but your loss is my gain in this case.

As far as stats go at this time, I really don't care one way or the other.

I just want to get the game and start playing it with you guys!

The big advantage of a ranked server is that you get more players on it. I saw this happen on a bf2 server, you need fresh players and they wont come if it isnt ranked.

I voted for ranked, but now that I think about it, unranked is probably better. People turn into smacktards when they know that the size of their e-Peen is dependent on their gameplay, and if there's no in-game benefit to stat tracking, let the e-Peen-concerned play somewhere else :P

Quality is in the quantity so to speak. Try enjoying a game when theres only three people on a server.
As a comminity you need to keep those new players pour in, believe me I saw it go wrong on other sites.
After that its the task of the community to adapt the new players by getting them participating on the forums.

I'm voting for unranked from the info I have now. I'm thinking it will be way too competitive and no fun at all if it's ranked. I might be wrong here and I might change my mind. =/

actually one of my clanmates brought up a good point... with unranked servers and custom maps, you have to download the new map and then learn it - meanwhile everyone else is kicking your butt or yelling at you for being a noob because they know the map better.

while unranked servers have their place as testbeds for new maps, i believe (and hope) that SD will compile official mappacks consisting of the better maps built by the community as well as hopefully some of their own add-on content.
