Game Ranks are getting less and less useful to indicate if a player is decent or not. Especially with FP and returning vets with new avatars. So I was thinking....
Players in game should have ratings (like the forum one).
Leadership Rating - How good at being ML or how they rally the troops
Intel rating (Spotting/marking) Rating - Making contact reports, Typing useful info on the chat interface etc.
Defence (guarding) Rating - Guarding FBs and CPs
Team Player Rating - Resupplying, Making FRUs,
Rambo Rating -
To stop ppl gaming the ratings each player will get a single vote (for each rating type) per day and they must have played a minimum of X hours in that 24hr period. Also they cannot vote for someone who is in their squad or who has not played for a minimum amount of time in that 24hr period.
The Ratings will be indicated on the mission list of players. That way you get a sense of who you can trust/follow when you spawn in.
