not that the ranking system is bad in any way, its just confusing. like how am i supposed to know how high up the "golden-pyramid-spikey-eyeball" rank is compared to another guy who has the "hollow-golden-pyramid" rank? like they should at least add a name to go along with the rank or something.
Sorry that I'm referring to CoD here, but I do remember that getting to highest level didn't take THAT long. It also felt more rewarding since it progressed much more noticeably. It did take a long time to get to 10th prestige.
