Ranking system should involve promotion and demotion of ranks!

As of right now the ranking system is in an ascending order; no mater what or how a player plays they rank up based on a point or accumulation of total score. If the dev's would include a system that would penalize players like de-ranking or demotion for failing matches constantly, killing friendly, leaving in-between a game or match (etc) it would give player's a reason to rank up instead of an assured thing. It's should be something players should strive for.

    In the past, ROE would decrease your point totals. When people were at lower levels, it would be easy to be ranked down due to ROE. Of course as you got further up in honor, the amount of ROE points needed to drop you down a level was astronomical. Although it was funny to see a 9 honor player roll into a server.

    Penalizing players for leaving during a game would be terrible. Some maps can take a long time, sometimes things just come up and you have to go. If a single player leaves during the middle of a game, it's way different than someone leaving a game of Madden or something. Everyone keeps playing like nothing happened.

    Losing score for losing rounds or matches would certainly be interesting.

    Well I guess we could rule out the leaving the game part then; but I remember playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Phantoms and getting de-ranked did motivate me to play better. Well a similar implementations might spice up the game especially in regard to friendly fire.

    If we had ranked matches like CSGO or whatever, then I could get on board with the leaving the game thing. CS pretty much warns you that a game could take up to 90 minutes, so if you're logging on for a competitive game you better be prepared to stay the whole time.

    I wouldn't mind more ways to lose points/rank though. I'm just not sure how harsh you can make it in casual games.

    Because the rank system has no value in game, there's really no incentive to rank up anyway. Getting demoted would be equally meh.

    Oh no. Please don't penalize players for losses. The ranks are based on points. Points are based on experience doing things, ie: kills, assists, revives, etc. Even if you lose, you gain experience for the actions you took during gameplay. Don't penalize us for joining a match that was already 1-7 and we don't have a chance to help the team to a victory.

    However, please please please give negative points for ROE. Currently, ROE is a separate number that we can't see. Giving negative points for ROE violations would make people be sooooo much more careful with grenades, spam firing, etc. Of course keep the setting to kick after # of ROE, but also turn that into negative points for the player.

    Deranking would make no difference. Unlike CSGO aapg doesnt use ranking system to match you up. It's pointless.

    In the original AA there were servers wher you couldn't join if you were above a certain honor level and servers for high honor only. I loved this, good way to address skill gap and keep players interested longer instead of playing a few rounds getting wrecked and uninstalling. Not sure why this went away.

    Too bad there is a bug in order to fool the server you're a E1

    Ya but who cares. How fun is it really to play with all new players? Wouldn't you rather play the challenging and more coordinated experienced players?

    I found out about it using a semicolon in my name so I guess there is some more even.

    Some characters just don't play well with Unreal. We fix them as we can, but some of it just can't be helped short of just banning the symbol.
    The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    I think you broke the NDA by publishing this video back then.
