THE RANKING SYSTEM DRAMATECLY CHANGING BY THIS Privaterank_0.gifRequired Score: 0In the U.S. Army, private refers to the two lowest enlisted ranks, just below Private First Class. The lowest rank (officially known as Private E-1 and sometimes referred to as recruit) wears no uniform insignia, while the second (Private E-2) wears the insignia shown here. Advancement to the higher version of private (with insignia) is currently automatic after six months time in service, but may get shortened to four months if given a waiver (but an automatic pay raise takes effect after four months of service, even absent advancement to Private E-2, meaning that the rank of Private E-1 has two separate pay grades). In the U.S. Marine Corps, private refers to the lowest Marine Corps enlisted rank, just below Private First Class. A Marine Corps private wears no uniform insignia. Private First Classrank_1.gifRequired Score: 100In the U.S. Army, Private First Class is the third lowest enlisted rank, just above Private and below Corporal or Specialist. It is equivalent to NATO Rank Grade OR-3. Originally no insignia identified holders of this rank, but in 1920 one chevron was established for it; then an arc was placed below the chevron in 1968 at the same time one chevron was authorized for the lower rank of private, in order to distinguish the latter from the still lower rank of recruit.

In the U.S. Marine Corps, Private First Class is the second lowest enlisted rank, just above Private and below Lance Corporal, equivalent to NATO Rank Grade OR-2. Lance Corporalrank_2.gifRequired Score: 250Lance Corporal (LCpl or L/Cpl) is a military rank used by some elements of the British, Commonwealth, and U.S. armed forces. It ranks above privates and below corporal, although its specific status beyond that differs between the forces that use it. It is equivalent to the NATO Rank Grade OR-3. The origin of the rank of Lance Corporal derives from an amalgamation of corporal with the now-archaic lancepesade, formerly an NCO of the lowest rank. This in turn derives from the Italian lanzia spezzata, which literally means "broken lance" or "broken spear", but which was used to denote a seasoned soldier (the broken spear being a metaphor for combat experience, where such an occurrence was likely). In the U.S. Marine Corps, Lance Corporal is the third lowest enlisted rank, just above Private First Class and below Corporal. It is not a non-commissioned officer military rank Corporalrank_3.gifRequired Score: 500In the U.S. Army a Corporal is the fourth enlisted rank, the first three being forms of Private. A Corporal ranks above a Private First Class and below a Sergeant, and has the same pay grade as a Specialist. Unlike a Specialist, a Corporal is a non-commissioned officer and may direct the activities of other soldiers, including Specialists. Corporal is the most junior non-commissioned officer rank. A promotion from Specialist to Corporal is a lateral promotion; an increase in rank but not in pay grade. It is common for a Corporal to lead a fireteam; however, if a soldier is promoted to Corporal and there are too many soldiers of that rank, the new Corporal will stay in his current position. Sergeantrank_4.gifRequired Score: 3,500In the United States Army, although there are several ranks of sergeant, the lowest carries the title of Sergeant, referred to as buck sergeant when needed to distinguish it from the higher ranks. Sergeant is the fifth enlisted rank in the U.S. Army, just above Corporal and below Staff Sergeant, and is the second-lowest grade of non-commissioned officer. Similarly, the United States Marine Corps has several ranks which carry the title of sergeant, the lowest of which is Sergeant. U.S.M.C. Sergeants are the fifth enlisted rank in the U.S. Marine Corps, just above Corporal and below Staff Sergeant. Staff Sergeantrank_5.gifRequired Score: 10,000Staff Sergeant (SSG) is the sixth enlisted rank in the U.S. Army, just above Sergeant and below Sergeant First Class, and is a non-commissioned officer. They are generally placed in charge of squads, but can also act as platoon sergeants in the absence of a Sergeant First Class. Staff Sergeant is also the sixth enlisted rank in the U.S. Marine Corps, just above Sergeant and below Gunnery Sergeant, and is a staff non-commissioned officer Gunnery Sergeantrank_6.gifRequired Score: 15,000Gunnery Sergeant is the seventh enlisted rank in the U.S. Marine Corps, just above Staff Sergeant and below Master Sergeant and First Sergeant, and is a staff non-commissioned officer. They are assigned a pay grade of E-7 and the title may be abbreviated as GySgt.

Gunnery Sergeants are commonly referred to by the nickname "Gunny". This nickname is usually regarded as a title of esteem, and is generally acceptable for use in all situations except formal and ceremonial ones. Use of the term by lower-ranking personnel, however, remains at the Gunnery Sergeant's discretion. Master Sergeantrank_7.gifRequired Score: 25,000A Master Sergeant is the eighth enlisted rank in the United States Marine Corps, just above Gunnery Sergeant, below Master Gunnery Sergeant, Sergeant Major, and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps.

It is equal in grade to First Sergeant. It is abbreviated as "MSgt." Master Sergeants in the U.S. Marine Corps provide technical leadership as occupational specialists at the E-8 level. General command leadership at this paygrade is provided by the separate rank of First Sergeant. First Sergeantrank_8.gifRequired Score: 25,000In the United States Marine Corps, First Sergeant is one level below Sergeant Major and Master Gunnery Sergeant and is the next rank above Gunnery Sergeant. It is equal in grade to Master Sergeant, although the two ranks have different responsibilities. Unlike the first sergeant and master sergeant programs in the U.S. Army, no lateral movement is possible between the two ranks in the Marine Corps. In their annual performance evaluations, called "proficiency reports," eligible Gunnery Sergeants indicate whether they wish to be considered for promotion to Master Sergeant or First Sergeant, and thus whether they enter the promotional track for Master Gunnery Sergeant or Sergeant Major. Master Gunnery Sergeantrank_9.gifRequired Score: 25,000Master Gunnery Sergeant is the ninth and highest enlisted rank (along with the grade-equivalent ranks of Sergeant Major and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps) in the U.S. Marine Corps. Master Gunnery Sergeants are staff non-commissioned officers (SNCOs), and are assigned a pay grade of E-9. The title may be abbreviated as MGySgt. Master Gunnery Sergeants are sometimes referred to by the nickname "Master Guns" or "Master Gunny." These nicknames are unacceptable in formal or ceremonial situations, and, at the rank holder's discretion, may also be unacceptable for use by lower-ranking Marines. Sergeant Majorrank_10.gifRequired Score: 50,000In the U.S. Army, Sergeant Major refers to both a military rank and to a specific administrative position. The rank refers to the highest enlisted rank, just above First Sergeant, with a pay grade of E-9. The administrative position, Command Sergeant Major, is the senior enlisted advisor to the commanding officer and carries with it certain ceremonial functions such as caring for the unit's colors. Additionally, they serve as monitors for and advocates of the enlisted men in the command. This position exists in units of battalion size or larger. Sergeant Major of the Corpsrank_11.gifRequired Score: 75,000 MY OPINION IS THIS SUCKS/ROCKS I almost got my next rang and yay i rised 3 ranks REPLY PLEASE:smokin: EA :0wned: ME AGIAN

Are you fricking kidding me? How retarded is this? :mad: You did it, you useless whinners, you nerfed the whole freaking thing down! :mad:. I am can't believe Dice gave in to this whinning noobs!!!

I am at 50,000 right now, and the game is over for me?! Great, i will have the last rank in about a month of partime play. And then what? 3 months down the line, the servers will be full of Sergeant Majors?!!! So what's the point of gaining a rank (which should differentiate you from the rest and give you precedence over the lower ranks) if every freaking noob will have that same rank?

Bloody awsome, a system which was realistically disigned for the lifetime of the game, i.e. 2-3 years, has been nerfed down to the level of the noobs for 5 months tops.

Agreed, 3000 hours for a badge may be a bit overboard... but 75,000 points for the top rank (when 50,000 can be achieve in about 3-4 months) is ****** bullshit!

Hopefully they will add new ranks with every new patch along with bonus unlockable weapons. That will keep the game going for as long as they suport it...

SYN: I don't think people play as much as you do, I have only played about 30 ranked hours and have 1250 points. It makes it funner for us who don't play 100+ hours a month.

In RL, you don't see everyone as Sergeant Majors. There are very few Sergeant Majors when compared to PFCs, Corporals and the rest.

And those that enlist in the army for the "fun" (server a couple of years) never reach those ranks. The rank was here to distinguish the hardcore players, from the casual players. All the casual players would remain at below the Corporal line, while the hardcord players would battle for the higher ranks.

Now everyone is same, so the whole ranking system is absolutely moot and loses it's point. They might as well remove ranks from the game now.

Quit your whining. There was never a ranking system in BF1942, but did that mean people didn't enjoy the game? There was never a ranking system of Counter-Strike, but did that keep people from playing for more than a year? Do you honestly think that the game is suddenly going to die because people don't have dedicate themselves to this game to get a high rank?

Hydraslav play for the fun will ya!? Xenomorph is right. So what if they made it easier we all im sure used to paly BF1942 just for the fun. If you are complaining that you can no longer gain ranks then fine but your practically screaming it ruined the game. Sure I also think its a tad bit to easy but cmon! If youve compelted your ranks just grab some games on non-ranked servers and play for FUN! I can see why people dont even like ranking systems. It just ruins a game with people complaining that the game takes to lo0ng or to short.

Quit your whining. There was never a ranking system in BF1942, but did that mean people didn't enjoy the game?

And so that's why we had threads full of ppl here whining complaining cause it was so hard to go up in ranks, they were playing for fun were they and not the ranks?

Well I tend to agree, nerfing the ranks like that destroys the whole point of ranks. Didn't see any of you guys jumping in then and telling them to quit thier whining and play it for fun! (well maybe some of you did, but I can't be bothered to go back and look :) )

Oh and BTW, I only have 6000 points so I'm not one of these play all day guys with 50,000 points, and was looking forward to my next unlock, of course now I'm a seargeant and I consider that I hardly ever play, it does seem a bit pointless. If they were going ot do anything they should have dispensed with ranks altogether
