You may have seen in the latest Dead by Daylight developer update that Skill Based Matchmaking (SSBMM) is being implemented for good. Arriving within Chapter 21, that'll remove ranks and introduce a new Grades system, all as part of one big patch.
Outlining what this'll do, Behaviour Interactive confirmed:
Each Killer you play has a separate rating, allowing you to play each Killer at a level you're comfortable at. The most recent test exceeded our expectations, and we’ll be rolling the system out indefinitely with the 5.2.0 update.
