Ranking System

26 posts in this topic

The ranking system really sucks.

I have been playing for a very long time and I can never go above a Col.

Which to me is wrong. I get no more rewards for what I am doing. It has

been many years since I have reached this point.

On the other side of this, someone joining HC gets to go up in rank even

tho they may be only a Sgt. as a player but a Gen. for HC.

So, here is my thought for the players and not HC ranking.

Let the players go up in rank to say 4 star Gen. Make the rank

look diferent than the HC rank to diferentiate between the 2.

Instead of stars, how about dots or squares.

Time to give the 'Olde Timers' some RHIP (rank has its privledges)

Also, maybe you can spend some of your experience points to purchase little

things like a camo uniform, better binos, better scope for gun, be

able to carry more nades, more satchels, be able to put a scope on a regular rifle.

Be able to camo your tank (you pick the camo scheme).

Longer range mortor (+200M), Different types

of ammo. you get the idea, makes the game more interesting, but doesnt

change the game. CRS would have to work out things to keep it low key stuff.

And I think the modeling of INF ammo is totally wrong. They are in essence

AP bullets. Not all INF had AP rounds, it was too costly.

I believe it was FMJ and not AP. The ATR obviously was AP.

Finally, solid objects really need to be solid. Like walls, your feet or gun should

not be able to stick thru them. Same for Light Armor, you shouldnt be able to kill it by

shooting thru the metal with small arms, except for ATR and shooting

thru the open ports.

It happens sometimes. I think this thread may in some ways be related to this other one therefore not much activity here.

In addition, as far as I know until we get to BGE 2.0, the modeling system is not friendly to cosmetics and/or altered kits. Some good ideas her but I think a lot of them are being covered in the thread I alluded to.

S!

Yes parts of this is in the other thread.

The big point here was being able to continue ranking up for some time.

It would require several years to get to the highest rank as a soldier.

This would keep people in the game longer, ergo more revenue.

Gives the player something to strive for......etc.

:D

I rather like the system where only people who dedicate their time in game to helping others, and moving their side forward, can attain general.

Ranks higher than colonel should only be attained via command, not time.

IMHO, obviously...but it gives people more incentive to join HC, if rank is of import to you.

So, me that was in HC long long time ago and hated it and would never join

it again would be SH_T OUT OF LUCK.

Not a problem mate. Time to unsub. Game getting tooooo boring.

If HC is the ONLY way, not worth the effort.

TTFN ;)

I understand, and again, this is just one guy's opinion.

To my mind, if you have attained a rank, you shouldn't lose it.

Also, to my mind, if you are not willing to LEAD a division or army, and do the HC grind (and I feel for you, because I don't think I would enjoy it either), then do you really deserve the rank of General?

I just hate the thought of time servers who never contribute attaining that rank.

This is not meant as an insult, man, or directed at you...I know your value. There are a lot out there, when on, who never contribute in a meaningful way, though.

If this is REALLY a big deal for you, just join the reserves and go .hcoff all the time.

You get your fancy star (just 1) and you don't have to do the HC work.

Why not instead of adding new rank once you max rank then you get on new ranks according to the kills you have.

1000 kills

5000 kills

10000 kills

100000 kills

etc.

Its not really about the ranking, its the fact that I and many others

have put a lot of time, effort and money into this game with little to

none reward.

I was only trying to come up with a way to boost olde timers morale and

a place we can still keep going to.

If they would come up with a way of spending your ranking points, then that

would be a place to go. So if I stop at COL, but I still get points to spend

that would be great. A place I can continue in. But as it stands, little to

none reward at a cost.

The game needs something to give to people that have been here for

a very long time.

Okay, this makes more sense now that I know you were talking about stars in a more general sense (haha no pun intended).

You have a good point. After you get your donut rank there is no "reward" left to work towards. An overhauled achievements system would do wonders if it coincided with the Steam release, since Steam has a built-in achievements system that we could conceivably tie ours to.

I would like to see personalized gear or even just a helmet or medal insignia on the persona. Nothing obtrusive, that sticks out at a distance, but if you are standing ten feet from the guy, you think:

"Uh oh, that's a black helmet bar"

or

"oh crap, that guy has the Order of Old Timers on his chest"

just before you die.

Exclusive, infinitely variable, and the coolest ones are at the top.

You get the idea.

I have had problems with STEAM. Hope CRS still has a way into game

without steam. If it is steam only, then I am gone.

If you have trouble signing into steam you dont get to play. Once you buy

from steam, you are tied to steam to play. Just sayin.

Hmmm. When was the last time you tried it? When I first installed Steam (something I was EXTREMELY reluctant to do at the time) it was so poorly optimized that I didn't touch it again for almost a year.

But they have come a long way since then and now I use Steam everyday. It has made a lot of my gaming easier, not more difficult. It definitely took some getting used to though.

CRS has already stated that the game will still be accessible stand alone along with STEAM. I use STEAM all the time, they do maintenance once a week for about 15-30 minutes. Other than that they rarely have outages these days. Not sure where the post is from CRS but maybe a representative will chime in to reassure you. I noticed that you have posted a few times that you are thinking of leaving. I hope that at this critical time that you find a way to continue to contribute financially and as a player and member of the community to the game. Respectfully. S!

I'm with you, Imded...Steam bites. I'd rather see a separate, stand alone portal as well.

It's to my present understanding you'll be able to access the game through the current standalone system as well as Steam.

Honestly who cares about rank. So having a star does what? Does it make you play better?

The only reason to have a ranking system is for the use equipment. THAT is the only use for it at this time.

Arguing over rank when there are SO many other issues is trivial.
