ive been reading this forum for awhile now and finally decided to join. i was wondering...is it true that you can do ranked matches with friends? ive read many threads saying you can. theres a few achievements id like to go for but it will not let me and my friend do ranked matches together to get the achievements. so can someone clear this up for me? if you can do ranked with friends then how so?

You can have ranked matches with anyone that has the game, an Xbox 360 and Xbox live.

You just can't invite people or have private slots in the game, like any ranked mode.

You can play with your friends in ranked matches, just tell your friend the gametype your playing and what map its on and tell him to just look for your name and its that simple!

No they can not. There are achievements that are exclusive to ranked games.

Some examples with descriptions:

Sniper15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpg10 kills using a Sniper rifle in an online ranked match

Siege Specialist15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpgLeading contributor of kills for the Defenders in a winning Attack & Defend ranked match

Survivor15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpgBe the only remaining player in a ranked online match of Survival

Lone Wolf15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpgMost kills in a ranked online Sharpshooter match

Team Survivalist15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpgMost kills in a winning online ranked match of Team Survival

Team Champion15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../home/images/common/gp-g.jpgMost kills in a winning online ranked match of Team Sharpshooter

All from the achievement list on this site. So are you saying they are all wrong?

So you're saying that the achievement guide is wrong when it says player or ranked? Eventhough I just did that and got nothing?

i know that i got the sniper achievement in a player match legit...so i can verify that the sniper one can be achieved in non ranked matches.

Player match's are just the same for the amount of points you get aren't they?

and that way you can compete/play with your friends.

I've got most of my achievements in player match's

Did you get these before the patch? Last night my brother and I got the sniper achievement but when we did a survivor with just the two of us no achievement was received. Do we just need more people or does the match need to last X amount of time?

Verified that it must be a pre-patch thing. Couldn't get anything but the Sniper achievement unless it's a ranked match. Played a player match of survivor with my brother and nothing. Played a ranked and bingo.

And now you can't see ranked matches that anyone on your friends host. I don't know of any way to get a friend in a ranked match that you host.

I even tried removing my brother from my friend list and I still can't see a game he hosts. Oh well.
