I don't really like the "Captain 44" idea... I don't think I have ever come across someone with a problem with distinguishing the ranks.

The downing of the levels is a good idea especially with this new rank naming.

Oh and I'm glad to see DX11 is back... :)

Hold the phone. My toon now has Captain X next to his name, rather than just Captain?! What if I as a VA just want the Captain title?!

As a reminder, none of this is live on Holodeck at this time and is only present on the Tribble test server. We expect this build on Tribble to make its way to Holodeck sometime in the first half of January. Also, note that Cryptic will have minimal staff monitoring the forums during the week before the new year, so feedback may not be processed until the first week of January.
minimal staff but a short deadline for feedback. how is it possible?

He's talking about the level display. Remember how it used to say Captain 4? Now it will say Captain 44. It has nothing to do with title/character display.

I don't believe there is anyone in the game that has a problem with rank and grade. Based on many of the changes for F2P (esp gaudy ESD signs) I think they're expecting people with the brain capacity of slugs to be joining STO.

I also don't like ths simplified level showing. It was fine as it was at the rank display and would now work even better in the old style as the rank actually starts at 0 and ends at 9.

Btw, whats up with this Ensign 0 and Commander 10. What happend to the LT ranks?

I would rather have the rank and level seperated. Something like "Rank: level" so that a captain rank 4 would be Captain: 34.

Really? If people didn't understand the ranking system then they don't know trek and have no business playing a star trek game

I think it might read better as 38 Captain rather than Captain 38.
