I saw a video from Obsidianant, talking about quick rank grinding.. and went to have a go at it on the systems described by Cmdr Plater (Ngalinn).

In 3 HOURS, i went from squire to Duke, and i'm talking Duke 100% because i had trouble with the ranking missions. i am pretty sure that in two ranking missions alone i'll be maxxed on imperial rank ^^
It's nuts.. each data delivery mission gives 9 to 10% rank at Squire level, whereas usually it would take 8 or 9 missions to get that much reputation (i didn't check the increase later on since each time i ranked, the following rank was already reading 100%)
I just had time to gut my Corvette and sell it to fit my new shiny cargo hauler :)


Sssshhhhhh.....

yeah this is probably broken.

I should get my second account to Rear admiral before they patch it.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Or maybe they finally realized, or even crazier.. LISTENED to player feedback... and saw that the rank grinding as it was is utterly useless, a pure time sink, brings no "vaaaaaaaalue gameplay" and was just a burden and a way of nagging people with ships you can't have unless you lose enormous amount of time doing repetitive tasks.

I wish they removed the ranks altogether. They make no sense whatsoever. How can you justify in character that i am Rear admiral of the federal navy, and an imperial Duke at the same time, both by running the space version of UPS...

This thing has to go :) The money required for the large ships is a big enough challenge.

A grind if you are worried about that shit.....

Me.....I just done it as a break from normal and because I could.......A distraction one might say.....

Being in a wing and working together made it even easier.......

You start worrying about any rank in either form......Deadly....Elite etc it becomes a grind.........

I just do what I wanna do and if shit happens it does.......

I play the game the way I want to play it.......

As for money......That is far too easy to get now......Stupidly easy........

Not a lover of the game mechanics.........Do not participate in CG's......Powerplay can go fuck itself.......Same as CQC.......

I just Love the wing I'm in........And that's about it..........

Having a laugh comes first......Game comes second.......

Bimbling about, dropping into USS as they pop up (where I've been attacked by pirates a few times, not seen that in a while, they died), taking missions that I fancy, doing a bit of Engineering, paying off bounties due to bugs (it said Wanted and he fired first!).

Saw a threat level 3 degraded signal source for the first time (they may have always been there) which was full of cargo

Being quite altruistic and picking up escape pods for the S&R peeps.

Generally just playing the game and visiting bits of the bubble I've never been to.

Finally made it to Sagittarius A*. Tis a beautiful sight. Considered heading back to Sol, but might attempt to fly to Colonia. Keep this journey going!
