Ranking up used to be a big part of the game, it gave players a goal to work towards but honestly what's the point in leveling up nowadays? Ever since they changed up the rank up rewards to GP only rewards for no reason (in addition to significantly lowering the EXP rates) many people felt that there is really no point in striving for a high rank anymore. You used to be able to get perm rare weapons such as the UMP45 SE for achieving the highest ranks which gave players an actual reason to level up but right now there's pretty much nothing left to look forward to. So let's change the rewards into something worthwhile and give players an incentive to ranking up again.
