It’s been a hella long time since I played ET and I don’t remember if the ranks went to a master server or not and was they saved. Basically I have a server box and want to know if I am going to have to sub out BF2142 for ET:QW? Or is ET:QW going to be like Unreal were there is a mod that saves your info for that server and you can become so high. Anyone know how this all works?

Ranks and awards in Quake Wars aren't permanent - they last for one campaign only, and at the start of the next campaign, everyone begins on even footing. I sincerely hope no mods come along which make ranks and awards permanent as that is, frankly, one of the worst features of the BF series, and it gives the advantage to those who don't play the game but waste their time padding stats and scores, while leaving behind the ones who do actually play.

As far as I know, ET:QW servers should only clash with BF2142 servers as far as any other server would. However, no one can really say because the game isn't due out for at least six months, possibly more.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

I don't know, I always like playing towards something in FPS's so it doesn't seem like i am wasting my time.

When that "something to work towards" gives you an advantage over other players and rewards people who sit off in a corner stat-whoring rather than playing the game, it goes beyond having something to work towards.

Maybe if it was just a little bit of fun with no actual effect on the game, like the forum's rep system, I wouldn't mind so much, but rewarding people who don't actually play the game is just plain dumb.

i like the idea of playing the game for a time and geting rewarded for doing it as in a rank but people being able to take advanatage of it is just wrong that more than anything

I agree, but I am not competing with those people. I am competing with myself to get that next rank the right way before the next bigger and better game comes out.
