Why should I care about ranks?
They've posted messages saying that at the end of the "season" players with higher ranks will get...something. Far as I can tell there's been no indication of what that something is. I would guess it's Custodian suit and/or weapon skins but they haven't shown off any so far so I'm left wondering why I should care? It's kinda hard to get me motivated about a reward if I don't know what that reward is.
On that note, why are there seemingly no cosmetics, Custodian or base decos, that are unlockable through normal gameplay? Feels like a big hole in the content pool.
Back to the topic of ranks, I don't understand the logic of rank gains and losses, I beat a base with only 2 deaths and I lost 44 points? Why am I losing points for succeeding? This hasn't happened a lot but it has occurred more than once. I don't normally play games with rank systems and I always avoid them if I do, is this common? Am I expected to play perfectly to just rank up? If so that's pretty bad considering my previous gripe about having no other way to unlock cosmetics. I mean I just hit Gold the other day so I'm not doing bad myself but it's the principal of the matter.
