Do you think there is to much ranks in BF3 or do you want to have the same number of ranks in BF4?

Too many ranks? No. What I'd like to see is more unlocks up until you actually hit max rank.

Ranks were good right up to colonel 1. Then everything goes to hell.

The rank system in this game is terrible. It rewards no lives over those who are good at the game. Not to mention after colonel, ranking up seems pointless.

Again, after colonel 1, the rank system goes to hell, that's why we get the march of the col 100s. Also, it seemed a bit off to go from being a non-commissioned officer to being a commissioned officer.

Ranking up needs to be harder and not just based on time played
Reconnaissance 1. military observation of a region to locate an enemy or ascertain strategic features.

+1

Games just keep getting easier and easier.

The achievements should be nearly impossible too, people would obsess over them and it would be something to work toward. Like get a double roadkill with a jet. Or double/triple headshot with a bolt-action, stuff like that.

I was thinking maybe something like a challenge system when you have to complete certain tasks in order to rank up

For sure.

The achievement idea is just something you do on the side, essentially how achievements are on the consoles; just odd and difficult tasks for bragging rights really. Kinda like the rambo dogtag, we need a lot more of that stuff, but harder would be nice.

Ranking system is OK, but unlocks should be assignment based you would actually get rewarded for aiding the team and playing objective. Now people are ranking up on metro stairs.

Rank system is OK ? Are you serious ? 100 ranks with the same icon is terrible. MOHW has a way better rank system http://medalofhonor.wikia.com/wiki/Medal_of_Honor:_Warfighter_Ranks [medalofhonor.wikia.com]

How about people don't do the assignments at all?

I say we follow real Marine Corps ranks- none of the freaking stupid "______ 1 stars", "______ 2 stars", "_______ 3 stars" nasty trash. And make the promotions competitive, not "get X points" when someone can trick the system. I think it should be more of a "you've played X amount of time, are at X rank for (this much) time" and systematically use a promotional sequence... But, for my 2 cents, also include something for "on the side training" in order to make that competitive.
