Hi there

I've getting a lot of complains about the ranks. I think the issue is that most people feel they were "demoted" when in reality is an adjustment but everybody is at the same level it was.

Currently there were 14 ranks and I wanted to push it to 30. The problem with this is that unless they are changed to numbers, by name it's not easy. You can't have Royal Air Force Mini, Super and Mega Hyper names.

If it was by numbers it would be easier to express but since there has been an outrage and it's very hard to explain, I'll put back the old names and add I, II, III to each rank to represent the levels separately.

I still it's not fair for new comers since whoever was level "Wing Commander" before it only needed to pass 5 levels and now it may need to pass 10, but I guess I can't keep everyone happy.

I'm fine either way too. I only said something because I just downloaded this game.to a new phone and thought it might have been a glitch. The ranks are cool to have, but it doesn't change anybody's skill, gysphan & 420 are still going to shoot me down.

Dear Z,

I am sorry about the comment the other day. I prefer we being informed before a change.

When you see something which is unexpected, the reaction is more due to surprise.

I believe what you wanted to achieve would have been noble, but since the old times knew the "new" ranks as inferior ones to the ones they have been having, the response was quick and volatile.

Next time i request you to kindly use the forum to introduce you changes so that we are better prepared.

Thanks,
B.

420, I had to add some digits because you were running out of them :P

Nah, I've waiting for Apple to approve one update so I can move it all to the new system, meanwhile numbers look a bit odd. You are seeing numbers for the new system. That's why you see huge points numbers since you'd be one of the highest ranks.

beedee,
don't worry, your message was actually one of the kindest, the private emails were scary! lol

I posted it on the forums but percentage wise I don't think many people read them. There are about 200 players registered in here vs 350000 registered in game ;)

Maybe I should add to the next version a big "forum" button.
