you at capt15 can not equip any of the equipment that i can. i will be tougher to kill than you, i will out damage you. does that seam right to you?
i agree that the fleet adm rank should be harder to get but should be open to all or there will be problems. the vet reward idea at least will ensure that someone cant get to the top rank in a week. but the talk of "fleet leaders" needs to be adressed only after we have fleet content in the game. right now there is no reason for a player to join a fleet.
vet reward it to days played on the character. not the account.
You're assuming that rank and grades have to be tied into one another.

That would be a good thing, because I'm not a fan of loads of rear admirals running around either. Again, equipment/skils need not be tied in with rank.
