Annoying Ranking System

Call of Duty Black Ops II Zombies

Annoying Ranking System

So I'm pretty sure ranking is not based on any of the leaderboard scores you earn over multiple games. Because, I just played a game with a friend whom I have way superior stats than, but in this one game he got 1000 kills and did really well, got to round 24. I was with him but I only got 400 kills. Afterwords he ranked up, and I am still stuck at the stupid Skull rank.

So I thought: "I guess it depends on how many kills you get" But then I played another game and got to round 28, and got 800 kills, and still I have not ranked up. I suppose theres a possibility that you have to break the 1000 kill mark, but I'll have to test that later. I personally think its really stupid though, that someone (like me) who has reached round 28, and reached 800 kills, is given the same stinkin rank as someone who reaches round 14 with 100 kills.

This is really stupid.

Honestly, go play survival mode on any map with randoms and just beast it out.  Try not to get downed til the very end and revive as much as possible.  I went from the skull rank with blue eyes to the sword rank with 4 slashes in just one game.  If it helps, the slashes on the ranks are just an indication on how many days you've played zombies consecutively.  If you played 5 days straight of zombies, you get the blue eyes.  If you skip a day, you get downed one slash and lose the blue eyes.  Hope this helps you!  Best of luck!

I think if Treyarch at least came out with a guide to the ranking system, everyone will have a better understanding, and be comfortable with how it works.

I don't even consider it a ranking system, it's just a pile of crap.

If the case being that it's a ranking system, then shouldn't I be playing with people who have the same ranking emblem as me and not a random bunch of them? (Not complaining about it, just curious as there seems no point to it else)

That's what I noticed. I went into a lobby, and it had three one bone people ffs. Obviously I didn't play with them, but it's super annoying.

kill to downs ratio

take kills divide that number by your downs

the higher the number the higher your rank

taking into acount your total kills and high rounds and some other smaller factors

above 80 for dagger skull

above 160 for shotguns

Re: Annoying Ranking System

in reply to TEX_715

so are you saying I have to have a 80 k/d ratio to get dagger skull emblem?

There must be another element involved otherwise I could just get 80 kills and then die at round 8, and still rank up. And that doesn't seem likely.

If thats not what you meant please correct me.

No offense bro but round 28 with only 800 kills is not good. I was also wondering how many downs you had?

Agreed, But I'd say it isn't bad either.
