wow kinda freaked out when I saw Tier 1 was 1500, I don't understand why they even have Blue-Bronze-Silver-Gold rating, isn't that the way the tier rewards should be working?

all it takes is 10 wins to get 1500 and there's your Rancor.. GG..

Disappointing really.

One of the things I have seen mentioned a few times on the forums since we announced the rewards is that 1500 is too low of a rating for Tier 1. I wanted to let you know that our rewards tiers are based 100% on data, according to the highest earned ratings of our Ranked players. Currently less than 5% of our entire Ranked playerbase is 1500 or above. So although the number may seem low, very few players across all servers have actually attained it!

All the more reason to hop on and work on getting that rank yourself

This is what I assumed was the reasoning behind it.

Can I just suggest that for Season 2, you announce the rewards at the beginning of the season? You can list them as being Tier 1, 2, etc, and that Tier 1 is for the top 5%, Tier 2 is the top 10%, etc.

I have seen more than a handful of posts in this thread along the lines of 'man if I knew there was a Rancor mount reward I would have tried more'. If you guys actually care about increasing Ranked participation, you will publicize rewards at the start of Season 2.

For me 1500 seems to be fair
The people complaining about the rating what it to be higher because they want to be super duper extra special snowflakes, and its easier to be that when less than 1/3 of a percentage of players are included, instead of that wholly unacceptable 5% Eric cites.

To anyone complaining about low population and no queues popping - spam your general chat about a Rancor mount and see what changes. Give it a day. If it doesn't then meet your standards, feel free to complain.

... to your alts using in-game mail.

That isn't the point, we shouldn't need to bribe to get queue pops that is putting a band-aid on the bigger issue.

Regardless of what you think or if you got lucky that isn't the point.....THE POINT is queue times are ridiculous no matter what and bioware needed to fix this a long time ago before they posted rewards
you know that site isn't very accurate right? Also, even if it was, pop wise pve servers in most mmos are always higher. But they also have majority pve players... Ranked queue actually exists on pot5 and pops quite frequently, both solo and group.

Ya thats called being dead. Even more so for group ranked considering almost every guild I knew over there is now on pot5.

Tier 1 is 1500+ rating?,really?.

Tier 1 should be AT LEAST 2000+ rating
Idk I also think Team Ranked players should get something different than Solo Ranked players

Considering that there's no cross-server, it would be incredibly unfair to give it to only the top 1/2%. I know plenty of amazing players who aren't up there with 2000+ ratings, simply because Jung Ma doesn't have as many pops as PoT5 or ToFN.

If Bioware introduced Cross server, I'd be all for having top dog rewards for the top 1% of players, and maybe a special unique snowflake reward for the guy at the very top.
