According to this post Twisted Treeline is still in beta testing and still has ranked.

Let's face it, we will never have ranked.

Your leap of logic is so tremendous, Superman must be proud.

It has ranked for 2 weeks. The ranked will keep the Elo from the old TT, so in some senses it's even less indicative of normal play, since the Elo is not indicative of map knowledge.
On the other hand, they kept it so people will play Ranked, and they'll get more high level/serious feedback on the map, in the short time frame they still have, while people try to get rewards/better rewards.

Also, if people are 1,800 Elo in TT ranked, they probably are better players than random players on the map. Or so the logic goes.

its not like they are going to remove ranked after letting them have it for 2 weeks. especially with the "frustrating not being able to play ranked when 5v5 players can" statement. Now, if they gave dominion a 2 week beta test of ranked and then let either decided it needed more work or not then i'd be open to that, but the lack of mention of it, especially with so many TT players complaining about how different the new map is is very frustrating to me.

the map is not that different they got rid of the cheese strategies that made tt into a frustrating experience, most of the people whining are those who abused said strategies you should stroll at those forums sometimesone of this days.

Player a: so new twisted treeline has a mana aura, can we have a tool tip?
Rest of players base there: noob idiot, *whatever insult comes to them* it's just like Dominion and we don't want nothing to do with Dominion >, not even a tooltip cuz dominion fail mode for idiots. (and yes they use the expression that dominion is a "fail mode for idiots").

the map is not that different overall that's jsut blindsheep knee-jerk raction and Summonner's rift sheeps posing as treeline players because they realzied they have no way to force their Meta on the new map "we can't force current Sr meta on other map so it sux nao, riot had a good chance for making us able to force our meta on other map then scrwd it , random crybaby QQ".
You can just ignore the altars in some fashion, "ohh? you getting two altars? fine let me go get vilemaw while you are at it then facestomp you next fight whole you delight at your clunky +10% to a somewhat irrelevant stat on the map buff"

Riot already stated that they would have ranked too anyways since TT already had support for ranked, somewhat and that their stats would translate so that TT players could make final push for gold/plat/diamond.

Opened a thread in GD for that reason. Hopefuly it stays there. Maybe we can get an official statement regarding Dominion ranked at least...
