GENERAL discussion

26 posts in this topic

This is GENERAL discussion.

Why do I see others that are NOT Generals discussing things in this FORUM?

I mean really.

 

S!

If you're talking about award threads, thats because some of the playerbase are f2p. Rest are nothing but "general". Why does it bother you that much anyway?

I like that this thread subtly highlights the absurdity of 99% of players being Colonels

I am part of the only section of the game where rank is associated with additional abilities and responsibilities for shaping game play. HC is the only part of the game where rank does as it is intended

I’m not saying the HC system works, just that the rank element within HC works

If all the players under you are colonels, that means you have no privates. :D

I think the issue has more to do with shunts than coffee, colonels or generals. There can be major issues if you are too much of a shunt. The 'no privates' comment seems to apply here.

Did OT plan a mild invasion here today? :) 

No. We're just working on some OT Policy Updates and needed to 'research' what the shunts in other forums are doing. Other than the 'Harbour' that is - awaiting the spelling fix for that in 1.36. For more you can get all the details by visiting OT here:

As an LtCol for 15 years plus. I think just for putting the time in I should be able to rank up. Non HC should be able to get to 3rd level General. Maybe with some other kind

of symbol for rank that differentiates from the HC General rank.

BTW, the HC are handed a General rank, whereas the PB has to EARN IT. So, the PB would be REAL Generals as in comparison to the HC Generals who are paper Generals.

CRS the PB need to be able to continue up in ranks.  It gives us something more to look forward to.

That's my story and Im sticking to it. S!

Yes they are PB, but they can get to Gen. from a Sgt. and be promoted thru HC but not thru earning points. Sorry you took offense.

One put the time in, the killings, etc. to get there. HC on the other hand passes out rank. Not the same thing.

Shows how one can gain more rank in this game if that's what one is desiring.. I didn't take offense, just reminding that even though HC are willing to step up and take a leadership role in the game's orbat, they are also a part of the player base. I am sure there are similar complaints in the real military when they see a young lieutenant or captain.

Almost all HC have lt col before joining HC I think? I know some who were low rank before joining but I think the majority already were as high a rank as the non-hc game allows you to get
