Since Cross server queueing isn't happening, I agree only having a reward for top three per class overall and nothing for server performance is a bit of a step too far.

Overall, I believe the rewards for having a certain rating on server should be diluted a bit, where gaining a set of gear and weapons would be enough. The top three per server should get a reward similar to the quality of the rancor mount, that signifies elite statis to some degree.

It would be the most fair, as competing for the top three spots on some servers is nearly undoable. Some servers require to fix matches every single time you want to play ranked if you want to have a chance to gain rating at all, while other servers can just have queues popping all day.

So yeah, just wanted to agree that the server populations should be gaining some reward, and splitting the value of the rewards based on top players per server with the rewards gained from having a certain rating would be the fairest and most inspiring competitively.

Are the top-middle-high tiers already confirmed? Should be nice to know what I have to achieve to get to top tier before my finals arrive and I can't play anymore for 6 weeks Would be nice to know so I can study in peace.

My current rating is 1545. Will I have to do more to get my top tier reward or is it good enough?

Would like to see a game where the answer to playing a game mode isn't "switch servers" tbh.

I mean seriously, if they want to preserve server personalities by denying cross server, why not give rewards based on server too.

Kind of ******** that I have to spam general chat to get people to queue for ranked when others can play like 20 matches in just an hour.

Sorry for repeating myself, but: the "top 3 per AC" reward needs to be changed to the "top [1-3] per AC PER SERVER" reward.

This needs to occur, I could have 4,000 rating, be the best person on my server, yet because some other server has more people to give them more rating, and they sit at 4,001 they get the rewards. I can't do anything to dethrone that other person since there is no cross-server q. So the best thing to do is to make it server rewards.

I like the idea of having top three in AC in the world as well, but they should at least split the type of rating rewards being gained with top three server as well. IE:

Season one top tier rewards: Unique titles, rancor mount, rancor pet, armor set, and weapon set.

Season One Rewards based on server top 3: Unique titles, armor set, and weapon set.
Top 3 per server rewards: rancor mount, rancor pet
Overall top 3 rewards: whatever they have in store for those players.

That type of reward system would not only encourage players to compete to be the best on their server no matter where they play, but at the same time, it would also prevent rating farmers from really being able to dominate in the leaderboards. Knowing what server those players are on, competitive drive to gain the top three would possibly be an answer to people queue dodging and whatever by having people specifically look out for others that they know rating farm and crash their attempt to be in the top three by queue syncing with them.

Which, would in turn, make the competition for the top three overall an actual comparison as to whose really fighting for their rating. Instead of this current system, where quite literally, all I'm doing is advocating people to form pugs for ranked PvP and stomping them into the dirt before they quit and never queue again. Since there is nothing else to play against around here.

I'd whole heartedly would agree that the current leaders in the boards (some of them are apart of the team I trust to play ranked with) that's all they're really doing. Specifically choosing the battles they fight, all in a desperate attempt to fulfill a race that isn't even practical because of the lack of population support that we have in this game.

So if the devs aren't going to let us actually compete with the world, why not give us rewards based on who we can compete with: our server.

A reward that I'd really love to see for Ranked PvP would be a temporary boost to all credits earned through PvP in-game after winning a certain number of Ranked matches. For example, after winning 3 matches, the player earns a 10% increase to all credits earned in Warzones, both Regular and Ranked. And after 5 wins, the player earns a 20% boost.

I suggest this, mainly because there is no PvP-related way for PvPers to earn lots of credits at the moment, yet we need millions to augment our gear. We have to grind Dailies, or partake in crafting, so I was hoping we could earn credits through PvP alone as well.
