I do not know if ranked multiplayer is implemented in Armello as of yet, but if it is how do i unlock this mode? Also, what system does the ranked use to rank you up and down? If you know the answer to any of these questions please let me know.

Ranked isn't in the game yet.  It was originally planed for the 1.1 update but they pushed it back to implement houserules, Steam VAC integration, and possibly to view player trends "when something was on the line" i.e. the winter Dice.

Hopefully we'll see it in the next major update or so, but it hasn't been committed yet nor are we sure when that update would be.  Maybe a month or two based on past update schedules.

To be honest, Ranked shouldn't even be a thing. While I have been someone who has shouted and pleaded for ranked for the longest, this game is just not meant for that kind of setting. There is way too much RNG involved to really give meaning to ranked. Sure the best players will have strategies and ways to make RNG less involved but considering the game is luck of the draw and luck of the roll down to the bone, there really is no significance to a ranked mode.

There is many players during events like special dices. When these event are finished, there is very, very less people. We are waiting all for new features, especially the ranked game, to provide enhanced play value.

When a game involves more randomness, being good at it becomes a question of risk management and adaptation. I am sure we'll see players who are consistently better at winning than others, and who develop specialised tactics to win.

I've played Blood Bowl in a league setting for a long time, a game heavily dependent on the rolls of the dice, and it is clear that some players are consistently better than others.
