I have been playing unranked, and wow, it is so much fun. The weird part is that I swear that I win more games when playing unranked.

Makes perfect sense. If you're anything like me then you'll just stress out, you won't think clearly and you'll end up panicking in unexpected situations.

I found your problem. You are leaning instead of learning! XD

Have you been doing your research? You should focus on mechanics not builds. Build orders come after you have mastered or improved your mechanics. Just get a decent all around build. Just one. That way you can memorize it then improve mechanics. I can get to diamond league with one macro build with solid mechanics only.

High skill players don't play unranked, there's no point. Ladder anxiety dissapears just by playing the game. Testing new builds against bad players doesn't prove anything, so again no reason to play unranked. The first requirement to being decent at sc2 is experience, because it's a game about repetition. Anyone worth their salt in this game doesn't get ladder anxiety, simply because they've a lot of games under their belt. Playing unranked isn't an efficient way to improve, but the games about having fun so do whatever you please.

AKA you probably win more games in unranked because the skill level of the general "unranked" population is low instead of matched.

Unless they've changed things in the ~10 months since I last played, the matchmaking system doesn't care whether you're playing Ranked or Unranked - you just get matched against a person of similar skill (MMR). It was (is?) possible to queue Unranked and face off against a Ranked player. The only potential imbalance there stems from the fact that the Unranked guy might be trying some oddball strategy since he doesn't really care about the outcome.

tl;dr - Ranked vs Unranked doesn't mean anything in terms of player skill.
