Mortal Kombat Online - New Site User Ranks

As explained in the relaunch announcement: User Rankings have been revamped to be part of a dynamic system with new criteria, new levels, and new permissions. As a result, the majority of users are Mortal again - but don't worry! It shouldn't take long to begin your journey to the next level!

Interacting with the Forums and curating your User Profile are the primary ways to start gaining more experience. Just being an active part of the kommunity will build you up! We've already seen several Monks browsing the forums in the first day since launch. Kongratulations!

Monk is the third user rank, and if you're a long time member of the site - you'll have likely skipped the first or second level entirely [depending on how early you ranked up]! Existing user accounts have retained all their prior acivity and will enjoy a bit of an edge when ranking up. Newly active accounts just need to join the conversation to reach the next level soon enough! A recent fix means many long standing accounts will automatically advance to the second rank of Student.

A Day 1 glitch meant some users who joined us for the midnight launch were mistakenly assigned a long service rank. This has since been corrected. If you've levelled up and think something is wrong, please let us know in the feedback thread. Refer to the launch announcement to know which 11 Site Themes you should have access to from the start. We will attempt to inform you of future changes to permissions and rankings.

Right now we're keeping some of the mystery surrounding new ranks, but you can enlighten the kommunity by celebrating your new ranking with a post to this thread! Enjoy your new status and just have fun!

FRIENDSHIP!

Awesome! Really loving the ranking system you guys have implemented. Makes posting and interacting really fun. Something to be said about progression systems, heh.

I see I have hit Kombatant. Is that the 4th rank? What was the 2nd rank if Monk is 3rd?

Fantasic facelift for this site that holds a special place in my heart!

Off Topic : I'm just now realizing that with V8 it implemented Twitter style notifications in the forums!

All of your stats have carried over from the old site. But engaging in forum activity is key for all users to rank up.

I believe that Mortal is actually the second rank because yesterday I noticed a couple of people online with 0 posts who had a rank called Babality.

I like the relaunch, it looks cool. Going to take a bit of getting used to, though. Thought I was on the wrong page for a second!

I do have to ask, though, does the experience/levelling happen automatically or does it happen once a day or what?

Automatically, but no more than once an hour

Cool, thanks. I probably have a LOT of work to get above "Mortal" I check the site daily, but I don't interact much, unfortunately.

What's a guy gotta do around here to get his own rank exclusively tailored to him and only him?

Also, no "Noob"? Missed opportunity!

Is there any way to see a full list of the ranks?

I'm currently a Kombatant (which I think used to be Warrior), and I have no idea where that is in this new rank system.

I changed my mind. Can I get my mortal rank back and not rank up please? The student rank sounds lame and im offended to be ranked as one since im visiting this website before some of the admins maybe ;d

I've been a member since my high school days, which dates back aaaall the way back to pre-2002, yet I'm not making an issue of my rank. It's an Internet forum, not the Marines. Rank doesn't matter all that much in an Internet forum, unless you're power hungry or enjoy lording over everyone ranked lower than you. My suggestion is that you take enjoyment in what this site has to offer outside of its insignificant ranking system. For the love of God, man, MK11 is coming in just over three months. We'll have loads to keep us busy until then, so don't make a mountain out of an anthill, chief.

Onto your other complaint, I doubt you can rank down without somehow negating all that you've done to get to your "Student" rank. You could always create a new account. Though, despite there being no list of site rules anywhere, I'm sure that's a practice that's frowned upon around here. I'm not exactly sure how you rank up as it isn't explained, but it may have something to do with Dragon Points. Submitting artwork no longer awards a user with Dragon Points, but a lot of users who have submitted artwork in the past have higher ranks than you and me. Starting new threads seems to allow for one to garner a Dragon Point or two so long as its purpose revolves around starting a discussion. Post count doesn't seem to have an effect on rank, either. But, it does seem odd seeing users with 60 or fewer posts sitting at the same rank as long-time users. Hell, I posted with the goal of helping a new user earn a trophy in MKX and wasn't awarded anything for my efforts. Nor did I expect anything.

I really have no idea how things work around here as far as rank and the earning of Dragon Points are concerned, but I don't care, either. Maybe I'm in the minority in that regard, but I really don't see many people here complaining about their rank.

Just to throw in 2 cents (since the discussion is already afoot)...

I've been here since this place was MK5.org, I'll grant you, I'm only really active prior to the release of a new game, when news & discussion is high, but I have been active (on and off) prior to the release of EVERY new game since at least Deception (including MK vs DC, because we didn't know that wasn't a real MK game at first)...

And I have no idea where student falls on the hierarchy (in fact what led me to this thread was a search trying to figure that out, which I still haven't)... BUT... I feel like I've been a rank that sounded lame for 10 to 15 years. I mean there are people in this thread with less than 100 posts who are students.

Just checked mine. I got 3k ;d lol you should introduce custom ranks as MK 11 is doing for fighters. You should provide that to older members.

Okay, serious question:

This morning I noticed I was a Kombatant for the first time and said, "Hey! I'm finally a Kombatant after 10 years! Woohoo!"

And now a few hours later I notice I'm a Student again. What gives!? How did I lose a rank in a matter of hours? I don't see a "downvote" on these posts, and I don't remember going into any tyrannical obscenity filled tirades this morning, which would cause the mods to demote me or something.

I was briefly happy, and you stole it away from me ranking gods!

EDIT: I made this post, and literally turned into a Kombatant again immediately after making it. The Elder Gods are most fickle, and apparently waffling on my rank.
