Would you like the S4 League ranking system to change? 38
Yes, I would like the S4 League ranking system to change. (34) 89%
No, I am happy with keeping the ranking system as it is. (4) 11%
I have been S4 rank for a long time now. Often I also see lots of players that have become S4 nowadays.
In my opinion it would be much more fun to reintroduce the S1, S2 and S3 ranks after the Pro rank.

When you reach the level 100 you have the eSper rank and you can start over as an S1, level 100, s2, level 100, s3, pretty much like the prestige system Call of Duty has (which btw the PM mentioned during the stream) up to level 1000.
I really believe it must be something hard to achieve because as of now there's way too many people that have reached max level, and that means that it's too easy to get it.
I think this seems like a cool way to change the ranking system in S4 League. Maybe there could be some unique costumes or other rewards when you get to the different S1, S2, S3 ranks. Like the Master set you get from combi levels.
As for people who are already rank 80. What if they stayed rank 80, and got all the rewards from the earlier levels if they introduced a new ranking system.

Put in the 100 lvls and make sure the lvls give decent rewards.
But now lvl up takes a long time and some people might get bored of it! What to do? why not something thats divided in seasons?
3 months would be a season, 4 seasons per year, players would play and at the end of the season, the ammount of xp they got will put them on a rank.
For the example of ranks, I will use bronze, silver and gold.
If a player at the end of X season gets bronze, if he is s4, his icon wont be just a s4 icon, but a bronze s4 icon, he can also get a bronze tag that lasts for a season. (Then silver and gold would give better bonus)
Also, why not turn the xp earned into pen at the end of the season? (You would still get pen after matches)
I really like this idea. Rewarding players for xp they get even if they are max level seems like a great idea. And giving players cool icons to go over their rank icons, based on their performance in-game is brilliant in my opinion. I can imagine players having something extra to look forward to, watching their rank icons changing to the next stage based on how well they do in game.
I am sure more S4 league players than the ones checking the forum would be interested in these ideas. By spreading this thread we can get more S4 League players interested in this idea. By creating this poll, we can see how many players are for or against the idea of a ranking system change.
Who knows, if we get enough players to vote for a change regarding the ranking system. The Aeria staff might even consider it!
It would be interesting to review the reasoning of your poll choice. If you wish to share your reasoning in this thread.
