    SURF RANKS

    Hello all, I think having ranks in the server would be a great idea.
    It's substantially more fun playing on the server with other people as it makes beating the maps more competative and gratifying. I do still enjoy playing on the server those late lonely nights when no ones around but it's missing a rewarding factor that other surf servers seem to have. A progressive rank system would be rewarding and would motivate people to complete maps despite not being able to beat the current record. If I join the empty server at 3:00am and can't come close to overtaking the curent record I loose quite a bit of motivation to complete the map, but a rank to work towards would fully redeem that. Not only could I try to beat a record but if I am unable I could work towards a different goal


    tldr: Progressive rank system would make the server for shity surfers such as myself more rewarding

    By and large, this is pretty simple to implement from our end as most of the systems exist.

    What would people like the reward to be? Maybe unique titles (We have to consider how this would coalesce with the existing title system, or if it sits on the side).

    We're having some pretty strong discussions about this internally because straight-up ranks don't quite play nice in the general eco-system as a whole. That's not to say they're not going to happen - we're just exploring the best way to give you something to work towards; but rewarding you at the same time.
