> This is what I would do:
> Every rank is based upon milestones; there are certain requirements that need to be completed in order to rank up. There are still credits that are earned during every game, but these credits no longer dictate rank. They’re only important for purchasing things from the Armoury.
> Here’s a couple of examples of how this would work:
> > Recruit
> > Requirements: Complete a game in any game mode.
> > Reward: 1,000 credits
> > Private, Grade 1
> > Requirements: Win 10 multiplayer matchmaking games. Get 1 ordinance kill.
> > Reward: 2,000 credits
> > Sergeant, Grade 1
> > Requirements: Win 25 multiplayer matchmaking games. Get 100 precision weapon kills. And complete Campaign on at least Normal Difficulty.
> > Reward: 5,000 credits
> > Captain, Grade 1
> > Requirements: Win 50 multiplayer matchmaking games. Get 250 headshots. And complete Campaign on at least Heroic Difficulty.
> > Reward: 10,000 credits
> > Colonel, Grade 1
> > Requirements: Win 100 multiplayer matchmaking games. Get 100 sticky kills. And complete Campaign on at least Legendary Difficulty.
> > Reward: 25,000 credits
> > General, Grade 1
> > Requirements: Win 500 multiplayer matchmaking games. Get an Extermination. Claim all hidden skulls. Find all terminals.
> > Reward: 50,000 credits
> Obviously this was put together very quickly just now. But if a lot of time was put into it, there could be a lot more balance between rank requirements. And the requirements could generally be better thought out. There could even be alternative methods of attaining a new rank depending upon play style. And if that idea was elaborated upon, whichever requirements you followed to get to the rank after Gunnery Sergeant could decide whether you become a First Sergeant or Master Sergeant, for example. Ranking would have the potential to become less linear.
I agree, but I think combined with the 1-50 system to get higher ranks, like above Colonel. I don’t know the inner workings of the 1-50 system, but I think it should not only take into account the number of kills, but also the 1-50 level of the other player.
Alternate Titles would be nice as well, like getting 10 Perfections, or 10 Killionaires would be high enough goals to have. You could also say that two, or three, of the titles would require two of the medal in the same game, depending on the metal.
