Ranks



  • Ranks are at the moment completely useless, It doesn’t show the skill level of a player as a rank 10 could be much more better than a rank 40 it just shows the amount of time he played, So I was thinking about a little adjustments, with the new upcoming customization of your character in the upcoming patch, I think that there should be armors/helmets/emblems or whatever unlocked by your rank, Like, A helmet that you only get at rank 30, I think this should be in the game cause it will add more customization and give the players something to play and come back to the game for as there is pretty much nothing to unlock after getting the weapons which you could unlock in about only 1 or 2 weeks which makes the game quite boring after.



  • Armors is not a word.



  • Im not anative english speaker, so what is the word for multiple armor?

    Some dictionaries say it is btw:

    I think he meant alternative british form: armour, armours.

    Armour/armor is both singular and plural. “I have a lot of armour”.
    Thefreedictionary uses the word “armors” as a verb, to equip someone with armor. “He armored that truck, he’s armoring that truck, he armors trucks”

    Anyways, on topic.

    The Rank doesn’t show how much time you’ve played, it shows how many people you have killed. You know, like gaining XP in games and then you level up. A Rank 10 guy that beats a Rank 40 guy is most likely another Rank 40 guy who has reset his profile somehow, or playing on another account. Then there’s of course people who are naturally talanted, but a Rank 10 is never going to beat a Rank 40 though. Just if he’s lucky, like if 40 is injured and 10 is sneaking up from behind. I’ve seen Rank 10’s beating Rank 20’s, but the skill between them differs a lot less than between say 30 and 40. It’s a pretty steep curve.



  • @CRUSHED:

    lol no

    You’d be surprised. It’s pretty rare but I’ve seen many gamers with a low rank get 10-0 in Duel or Top Player in FFA.



  • in duel mode are mostly noobs.
    every good player is able to die.



  • @SavageBeatings:

    Youd be surprised what stupid rank 40s Ive seen.

    99.9% of the time I agree with you, but then theres this one guy who just never learns and probably collected alot of kills as a Vanguard in FFA (easiest way to do it with much skill imo).

    Yeah, today I was in a pub server and saw a couple of level 40+ who were rather useless. But perhaps they were just there to ruin the fun because they think they are superior human beings or something? :P There was one level 40 who stood in the way of our side’s archers while yelling “Defend me lads!”

    The word for the multiple of armor is “armor”.

    Like sheep. You don’t says sheeps.

    “Sets of armor” makes better sense.

    Armors (technically armours, the Americans decided to spell things differently) is old English to put armour on.

    lol no

    Lol YES! Probably no clanmember one but I’ve seen several people being Rank 44 or even HIGHER and getting their arses owned by very low-ranked persons.

    Might be a bug since many of them played the game for like 20-80 hours max.

    Or maybe I’m just so bad that it took me more than 500hrs for reaching Rank 43. :?



  • The only problem with rank is that it doesn’t count objective points and assists. I generally play a support style knight who focuses on the objective, generally on the attacking team if I can. I won’t move away from the objective just to get a couple of cheap kills.

    I’m level 37 or 38 (not sure because a glitch shows me at rank 45) and can see other players who are on my same skill level and have been playing for about as long have much higher ranks because they generally focus on getting as many kills as possible. I don’t mind that style of play or anything, I’m just noting that rank is all about kills and I see certain people who are always on the defensive team because you usually get more kills that way. If they are on attack they generally run around the flanks looking for easy archers to kill or something.



  • Many rank 45-46 were actually bumped there becuase the game decided to jump them.

    Doesn’t matter what rank you are it will put you at one of those two ranks.

    Permanently.

    So expect some pretty nooby players.



  • Yeah well, besides the bug that turns you permanently 46 rank, a nornal 40 rank will never lose from a rank 10. Its not the hours played, its the experience from the kills.
    Each ranks requires double the xp gained from the rank before. So if you do a little math, you’ll understand the chaotic difference between 10 and 40.
    Ofc that doesnt mean a 40 rank is twice as better than a 30.
    But 30 ranks difference, yeah its pretty huge one.



  • This is not a bad idea, but I’d HATE it if ranks to gave you any actual benefits. Cosmetics, no problem.
