Easier to rank up after captain?

One of my friends mentioned that it is easier to rank up after you get to captain, is this true and if so, why?

Yes. And no idea, the jump from Warrant Officer to Captain is the biggest in the game. After that it feels unfair to rank up so fast.

True dat, cuz you need less cR to get to the next levels that follow El Capitano than you do to get through Warrant Officer.

Yeah, it's 66K, if I recall correctly, to get from WO Grade 3 to Captain, and it may be because of the achievement, other than that, I have no clue.

Yes, the credit requirement is lower. Warrant Officer Grade 3 to Captain takes 66,000 cR, which makes it the longest rank-up in the game (currently). The other Warrant Officer rank-ups take 33,000 cR. Getting to Lt. Colonel takes 50,000.

This is presumably because the achievement is at Captain, so Bungie wanted players to have to actually "try" to reach it.

I is just me, or does 66,000 credits not really seem like that much?

It is. Once you've exhausted a lot of your commendations you basically come to rely on daily/weekly challenges as your main form of credit gain.
It ain't no secret I didn't get these scars falling over in church.
