there were ranks on BF2, they just didn't go very far and u got to General too quickly. For BF3 they need to have more ranks and make it harder to get to the top 1.


There's something that lurks in the shadows... Its not me, but i wish it was.

Ranks seemed like a pointless way to keep you playing. Just let me command a few troops at the start so I dont have to farm my way back up to general to tell the ai to get in a fricken ship.

The ranks system should be the same as Halo 3, and with each rank you could unlock some cool armor, that would be nice

would bonus armor work though? it would kind of eliminate the ability of some of the stringer classes (wookie) etc. i like the bonus - rank idea, just not sure armor is the right bonus

the how about each rank you gain part or weapons that are customizable, but the armor idea is tempting

Yeah, but hopefully the creators of BF 3 will learn from their mistakes and remake it

i think customization on weapons would sucs. you could have a blaster rifle mixed with a bazooka but wats the point?
back to topic, ranks in bf2 were sort of stupid because u could get to general in one map.
but maybe progressive like u get to lt on ur first map and then cpt or watever then to general. it should definitely be slower.

ranks should also mean something (as i think mentioned b4) bonus wise and not just for the sake of being their. (sorry to repeat myself but i feel this is important to add)

i like ranks but definitely definitely make it harder or at least difficult to get that high.
what about ranks for individual person as in trooper, sniper, etc.
if u get to a certain level u master that person

^^ What is that you wrote, sorry but I could not get it

Well, ranks are good, but at least gives us some armor to customize ourselves with or something else for our efforts.

for which ever unit you choose you can have an individual statis
on that unit.
ex. if you are a trooper and mow down 60 strmtrprs in 1 min then u get a new rank
then you die and choose a sniper.
then you start from the bottom
the rank didnt stay with you.
what if u have an individual score for each unit

that would make it longer to get to the highest rank for each unit, like it

It is better if they have no bonusses.
It sucks when your enemy has a trishot or a guided missile.
Just let it be normal, except the tanks of the CIS on Geonosis. Because you can't hit a thing with those rolling things.

hence why you press q and lock on before firing. Although they were much more effective when there were air units, considering thats what they were put in to shoot down.

No i mean when you fire 4 times succesfully on the weakest point of a tank or imperial walker you get one point. When you had about 64 points (I guess)
you could unlock a rocket that you can steer manually.

I already knew that you needed to press a button to keep autoaim on it what jawa says.
