i think u should remove rankings, they just make ppl rage quit
they dont show real skill, just who likes to credit farm.
the game would be MUCH better if ppl dosent rage quit, and they ALWAYS do.
this might be a way to make them stop

ww00,
 
This post was posted with good intent, but it's presentation... really? You have used grammar at a kindergarten level, you have used text abbreviations (which I'm sick of, by the way), and you didn't even acknowledge who you are trying to speak to, or who you even are! Seriously. Let me offer an improvement:
 
Dear Community of Carbon Combat,
 
In my personal opinion, I believe that you should remove the ranking system. I believe this because it doesn't show real skill, it makes people rage quit, and this may be a solution to rage quitting. First of all, the ranks don't show real skill. They don't. It's true. Simple as that. The people who are ranked up as number 1, number 2, number 3, and so on; they don't have real skill. They are the people who like to credit farm. Let me provide an example. The player 5ckm3, whereas he looks like an excellent player, is not as good as he says. He is ranked number 1, but to get the amount of credits he has (10000) he would have to play a LOT. He doesn't. He is almost never on, and this shows proof that he credit farms. As well, this ranking system makes people rage quit. If people see that they are trying their best, but they are still ranked lower down, they will probably quit out of frustration. Now, we want people on Carbon Combat. If people quit, we will lose valuable members of our community, and NOBODY wants that. If we remove the ranking system, then we will have a chance to retain many more members of Carbon Combat, and this will result in a stronger community. In conclusion, CarbonTech, I, ww00, oppose the ranking system implemented into Carbon Combat. I oppose because it only shows people who credit farm, it makes people rage quit, and not rage quitting would result in a stronger community. CarbonTech, please remove the implemented ranking system.
 
Sincerely, 
ww00
 
 
Now, THAT is the type of thing people are looking for. Polite, concise, and structured. In the future, please try to make your suggestion "style" a little more structured and presentable.
 
Sincerely,
Apophis

Apophis, I love you!  I wholeheartedly agree with you and what you said.  ww00, don't be afraid to open Microsoft Word or a program like that and type in your message then spell check it there.  Capitals start off a sentence.  A period ends a sentence and a paragraph begins a new idea.  A paragraph (usally) starts off with an indent (~5 spaces or tab key).

I agree I dislike the fact that people are getting high ranks from credit farming...
 
the rank is a presentation and the presentation is ruined by these people... I am not sure how to add to this but i am saying that I agree that rankings have become pointless

   I agree that the ranking system is... well... broken and probably not even needed, but what it doesnt have any major affect on is rage quiting, far as i can tell thats only because of better equipment on peoples cars.
   Just my thoughts on this, and having it removed will not change a thing, least for me anyhow, and ive always thought that having the score stop at 10000 is rather stupid as well... but that is irrelvant.

There is some truth to this. People farm so they can get to the top. It's part of a never ending race to be the "best."

Some people (nattyfrank and Director) have had their rank points frozen so that they aren't tempted to farm.

darkryno, it would change things, why rage quit if you dont lose anything on being killed?

I have a new account (kong account was capitalized) and I find I wish to rage quit when there is no chance of me killing someone.  I went against Fios when he had shock armour and a laser cannon.  My lvl 10 plasma blaster did almost nothing to his health bar.  Rage quitting happens when a nood goes up against someone with stong weapons and the person with stong weapons doesn't give the weaker player a chance.

You loose something for being killed.... wow never even cared.

it also happens when 2 people with same equipment meet and one of them kills the other one 2 times without getting killed. that wouldnt happen without rankings

I'm pretty sure it would.  If someone doesn't make any kills and they aren't having fun, dieing repeated times without killing someong ISN'T fun, they are going to leave.  Sure, ranks may have something to do with it.  But, I doubt it is a major problem.

yeah, they might leave, but probably after 6 - 7 kills instead of 2, and during that time its almost impossible to not kill the enemy at least 1 - 2 times

So we all agree that the ranking system is useless and should be removed?

There is nothing wrong with the ranking system...
14 hours - 1,369v
Posted 2011/12/25 - 8:09 GMT
yes there is, people rage quit cause they dont want to lose ranking, and for example, 5ckm3 that is ranked 1 is a credit farmer, many are better than him but he is still ranked higher than them

The number one spot is a four person tie...

which makes the system completely worlthless, since no one can actually be #1 in the first place!

This is true, you should be able to reach a higher value of points than 10.000. Soon there will be more people on #1 =.=

The ranking system was a good idea when it came out.  But it had unintended consequence.  I do believe that if it was removed people would still farm for credits, even though it is super easy to earn them.  People will still evict/quit when they can't make a kill, it will just be attributed to another factor of the game.  Removing the ranking system would just solve one faucet of the problem, not the root of the problem.  The root of the problem is that People want to be number one.  The only way to stop farming is to make all the items free and have no ranks.  I doubt any of us wish for the store to become completely free. 
 
Take my ideas as you will, they are just that.  My ideas.
 
Sincerly,
Nattyfrank

Lol, I think it's hilarious that I have held 20th place for months now! Never been bothered by it though, really the whole thing is balanced on if you care what other people care. I personally don't care, ask natty, I'll farm or play a normal game any day, it doesn't matter to me, I just take it as it comes.

I don't think removing the rankings is a good idea. First, I have dared to challenge some people ranked higher than me, and it turned out to be fun, but hard matches. Some high ranked people are good, some aren't. You should accept that you aren't as good or experienced as them, and just play with them rather than quitting because fear that they will beat you. Many high ranked people have farmed a lot in their games, and aren't really that good. Personally, I farm when It's possible, for example when people are driving against the walls next to the spawn point, but mostly I just play the game normally and see what my enemies do. If you fight against me, and i keep on killing you, you should simply try a different tactic, or mimic me. Second, I have worked hard for my rank, and I don't just want to lose it because people are afraid.

I am not in top 10, but it dosent mean i cant beat them, i can defeat them easily anytime. But i am still ranked lower than them cause they farm a lot. And only top 10 can be seen when you look at rankings, and if they all farm, whats the point with rankings then?

Well, you can press "show all" to see everyone's ranking, and I've met some people who are in the top-10, and not all farm. It's just that some farm just for the points, others play for fun and for the points. Everyone has earned their rankings one way or another, and even if it's farming, I still think it's unfair for everyone (except the fair people who want to be in the top-10 without farming).

IDEA!!!
 
How about a no kill zone??
 
this would prevent spawn killing and make the whole idea of credit farming more complicated in what you would have to do to make it efficient

Might work, but we are talking about rage quitters.
