New Ranks Thanks

This games ranking system was way too easy, I loved Reach because it took forever to rank up. Dont get me wrong I am playing for fun and commendations but that will only last so long. I would love too see new ranks or specializations… Hell I would like to play some firefight. What do you guys think?

Yeah… for an experience based leveling up system it sure was short.

Please make additional SR levels that can only be reached by going through Commendations, I hate going through Commendations and I need more of an incentive to do them.

Big bummer as I’m a completionist.

To be honest, any mechanic of this sort doesn’t really add anything to the game for me. I didn’t like it in Reach and I like the system even less in Halo 4. All this pandering to the gamer crowd that wants a sense of “achievement” and to feel “special” by having exclusives and unlockables is more frustrating to me than anything.

Reach only took 100 days minimum to rank up. I did it on 2 accounts (including this one). It wasn’t that hard.

Some of us have lives though

It would be nice to have more ranks, but if you think about it, more specializations would need to be implemented into the game in order for the ranking system to work.

There really isnt a ranking system… it’s more of a progression system to show how much experience you have earned.

Agreed. At least in Reach the commendations were substantial. 1,000 kills to reach a weapons master isn’t that difficult. I think in Reach the Onyx commendations (small arms, precision, heavy weapons, etc) were around 10,000. Earning that Haunted helmet was not easy.

As for those who are against the “sense of achievement” and the “special” feeling you get when accomplishing them: why does it bother you so much? Let people play the games the way they want to play, especially if the commendations and progressions are built into the game.

So do I. I work an 8am-5pm job 5 days a week with a family and still managed it in the 2 years Reach was out before Halo 4 came along. I’m halfway through my second SR130 on Halo 4 with this account. Like I said, it isn’t that hard to do.

Not necessarily more Specialisations, but maybe special weapon skins sets or more visor colours for each extra set of 10 ranks.

Can we also get those nice military ribbons like they have in the military in order to show our accomplishments.

These ribbons must be visible when we play also. That way everyone will know that we are a big deal.

I like this idea; anything that rewards the XP earned in a game. I just reached SR 130 and it’s sad to jump right to the endgame results. I actually miss the XP gauge filling up, even if it didn’t fully list the XP earned. I hope there’s something in the works like maybe seeing your CSR rank increase or decrease at the end of the game. Something to show progress would be nice. What do you think?

Agreed. 130 is too easy to obtain. I have decided to play Reach again for the way better challenges, and I have a long way to go yet before I cap out on that game.

I hope they fix challenges, for example 30 wins for the monthly is really lame. They also NEED to add more ranks. Add Reach’s ranks when you get to 130. This will take everyone a long time to get.

Agree in all.

H4 would be more fun to play if the ranks was like Reach’s.

I prefer Reach’s were it took a loong time to rank up (Noble myself) than be over and done with, quickly. And i miss the military ranks!

It’s not really short, guys. Maybe you had double xp or something, you could be getting 14,000 xp a game on Sp Ops matchmaking
