****** The REAL Reason The Ranks Aren't Finished ********

It's genius actually. Bungie let's the ranks cap out at Lt. Colonel Grade 3 where they know whether boosted or legit, enough people will 'reach' (lol) within the 1st month or so. ....Meanwhile, you continue to play, working intentionally or unintentionally towards your Commendations gaining cR that boosts you to nowhere since no "next rank" exits. This explains why they dont care if you Oni Boost or Gruntpocalypse for 40 hours, because all those credits accumulate sure, but don't go to ranking you up. Once the ranks are finished and added, you'll now have maxed most of the easy Commendations and the only way to rank up further will be to play online. Gruntpocalypse only really gives around 300cr for completion, it's the commendations that give you the most credits. So that strategy wont be effective after your commendations are maxed, neither will Credit boosting in Campaign, or ANY current strategy. Owned? _____ [Edited on 09.30.2010 3:47 PM PDT]

  • I highly doubt being a Democrat has anything to do with whining about a game or not having a life which is impossible since they are alive.... yeah I'm a smart ass but anyways back on topic the level cap doesn't bother me I don't play enough to get the 20mil cR even though I can get mainly 700-1000 or so cR per game but then again I rarely go negative It's like a flying rhino it never happens.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Deltasqaud23 You do realize it isn't hard to rank up? play the game, do good, WIN and you get a huge bonus. JUST WIN AND DO YOUR BEST AND YOU RANK UP FASTER. not hard dude. [/quote] I beg to differ. One game, I went and got 28 kills, with like...5-10 deaths I think? Got about 600cr MAX! Next game, and no flaming, I had...7 kills and 18 deaths. I then obtained 1378cr. The cr system is flawed somewhat, and I aim to find out HOW!

  • This whole entire post was pointless, the ranks are finished. The people that saw them used a JTAG, it UNLOCKS what's already there, kind of like Jailbreaking an iPod.

  • ugh...commendations aren't just the silver, gold, onyx, etc. variety. You get Cr for each medal you earn during a match. Firefight or otherwise. As far as I can tell, earning commendations only affects credits in Campaign mode. I played over 50 games of FF this week to get the weekly challenge. It helped me get several commendations. I still earn the same amount of Cr (give or take 100) each match.

  • So you're saying bungie wanted to see how quick people got to LT col 3 that quick just to get demoted back to recruit? -_- I only did the TL for at least 1 hour or 2, and for FF I didn't just do gruntpocalypse, I did lots of sniper attack and crashsite for commendations. and I did to MM just not as often, maybe 100 games.

  • ummm you my friend are a noob with no clue. THERES NO WIN BONUS. this has been addressed MANY TIMES. theres no reason to win, thus you have people in 4 on 4 afk ALOT. Bungie really droped the ball on the matchmaking,ranks, and leveling in reach.

  • The ranks were capped before they released the game, at which point they didnt realise the farming issue because they arent that obsessed with an aesthetic rank.

  • thats a lie because most people just want to see the new stuff they unlock and couldnt care any less about the game it self if they made it harder for those people they would get frustreted and quit and im sure bungie wouldnt want that.

  • Who cares the Max rank in this game is at 20 MILLION credits. You won't get that in 3 years unless you have absolutely no life or you boost. Or if bungie possibly released a better way of getting cR, but as it sits it is either no life or boost cR somehow

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Evergrace III Try to guess the number I'm thinking of, I'll give you a hint, it's the number of -blam!-s I give.[/quote] ^I love you [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Lord Desdinova Exactly!! rank caps???? lol sounds alot like some obama-like commie socialist plot to equalize the masses and punish the achievers.[/quote] ^and you [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Merc Savage I play more Matchmaking than I do Farming Firefight even though I did do the ONI Base exploit and I have sliver in the Firefight commendations and I'm almost a MAJOR G2. I would prefer not doing the Gruntapocalypse but if the daily challenges tell me to do it. I will. I just don't have enough time to get all the ranks since I will soon be going overseas to Afgahn. [/quote] ^and you....well....... I'm just sorry that you have to go. Politicians, whaddayagonnado? Anyways, I think the consensus is as follows: You get the appropriate rank when the cap is lifted; cR is cR, whether you get it now or later; no matter how high your commendations are, you still get the same ammount (eg. I have 3 onyx and have always gotten 1100 cR). I'm kinda bummed to hear that GP is getting nerfed. I think everything else should have gotten a boost.

  • The real reason it wasn't finnished... It is finished, If you post the links to the leaks you get banned. the reason there is a rank cap, is to get everyone excited into the first month of the game... but keep them unaware that the highest rank is 20million credits. As If taking 4 days didn't bore some of us with ranking up on warrent officer 3, bungie decided that ranking up after the new ones, it'll be 1 rank every 2 weeks.... Talk about a boring ranking system. I mean, there just isn't enough unlocks/ranks. there isn't enough to have me coming back for more. as far as I'm concerned, Lt. Colonel grade 3 is the MAX level. as by the time bungie releases the new ones... more than 2/3s of the population will be over on the new games.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] II BlacK MagiC No it's definitely so that you have more incentive to play over the long term. They want to keep people playing post Black Ops and will up the level cap around it's release and do double credit weekends around Black Ops release. Quote me.[/quote] Sir!

  • I don't know if that's [i]why[/i] the ranks aren't finished. But it definitely works in their favor and explains why they have taken such a leisurely stance on everything so far.
