    Hello, Cold Network.

    So, as we all know that CN has come up with a new update: Click Here

    Pengu has come up with a 1000IQ idea to "POLISH" up the ranks. By that he means... He has removed almost every Practice Rank from CN. Which ranks are removed?

    1. Donator+
    2. Ultra
    3. Master
    4. God (The Highest Rank You Could Get)

    And the thing is, this new update is very unfair. This is legit known as scamming. For example: I ordered an iPhone 11 Pro but I got an iPhone 6s 32 GB (lmao).

    So, let me explain the situation. Pengu decided to remove some ranks or he POLISHED ranks. Meaning, he thought that Practice had too many ranks, so he decided to remove some to make it all look clean and tidy. But, the thing is that he didn't do it properly. Why?

    Total 4 ranks got removed (stated above). So, the people with those ranks either got promoted to the next rank or demoted to the previous one. This is what happened:

    People with Donator still have Donator rank, but people with Donator+ now have Elite (which they never paid for).

    People with Elite still have the Elite rank, but people with Ultra, Master and God also have Elite. Which means, people with Ultra, Master and God got demoted to Elite. But, Donator+ got promoted to a rank that costs 50EU. And just reminding you guys, Donator+ didn't cost even near to 50EU.

    In short, this is all unfair. And this is literally hurting my brain. We spent our money for a pretty expensive rank. But, at the last we got a rank that is cheaper than the original one we bought. People with GOD rank have Elite. They should've been promoted to Cold instead. They payed so much and at the end got a 50EU rank. Like WTF?

    It all should've been the same. This new Rank's Update is completely useless and unfair. People have donated for a particular prefix and you took it away from them which is honestly sad.

    NOW, if you really want to "POLISH" up ranks, why not just remove those particular ranks? So, from now on people won't be able to buy them (btw, this has already taken place). And for the people who already have donated for Donator+, Ultra, Master and God.. let them keep their ranks as always. Just imagine these ranks are limited edition and can only be bought once. And everything will be fine.

    Have a good day!

    So, this is similar to what Apple does. They give you a phone with no head phone jack. And then tell you to buy AirPods if you want to use earphones.

    The reason that we are annoyed is just the fact that we bought Ultra Rank, which was pretty expensive. Donator+ for example, wasn't that expensive compared to Ultra, but the people that bought it just got a free rank upgrade with all perms. Even though we all do now, it's still unfair considering we spent more money than them. And it's even more unfair for the people that bought Master/God rank before the new season update.

    There is no compensation given to the players who lost their ranks. Literally a waste of money and a scam.

    I understand this and this truly wasn't the smartest idea to do from Pengurino's side

    If they didn't like to keep many ranks on practice, they should have kept the Ultra ranks only for those people who bought it (or got it) and remove it from the store. So it would make the Ultra rank like an OG rank because you couldn't really get it anywhere anymore

    ^^ (also for the other ranks that got removed)

    This issue is maybe just because CN doesn't really have that good of a management team (I'll get hate but this is true), and I'm not surprised if it wasn't discussed between the head staff at all, or if it was, all of them aren't thinking properly.


    Hope this gets fixed & will let Nick know about this

    Thank you for the response, then I can only say it was Pengurino's fault and I recommend that he talks to staff before making any silent judgments when it comes to these things. If there is anyone who knows better, it will be staff as they play the longest.

    I don't really think it's a bad idea at all. No one lost the permissions they have paid for, only a few tags got removed.

    Edit: Anyways I'm one of those who think ranks should be global on all gamemodes and should be temporary with the exception of an expensive permanent rank (+100$).

    The problem isn't about the permissions, well maybe it is, but you shouldn't remove people ranks (something they own). If I was to remove something from you, you would go mad as well I assume.

    OK let's take an example. There is a game called PUBG, a game called FORTNITE. Both are Battleground games. Since, we all know that these games offer us skins when we open crates. And it's not like the skins are always available in the crates or in their store to buy. After updates they get removed. BUTTTTT... Players still get to keep their skins. Which makes the skins OG.

    So, SAME could've happened here... You could just keep these ranks for the players who've already bought it. And remove it from the store.

    This is just so simple, all you had to do was discuss it with the management team. If you didn't, what's the point of having one?

    this is what the management team feels like...

    thought of every possibility on how this could have played out well. couldn't think of one. even IF certain ranks were merged and those who paid a lot keep their permissions, players who didn't have gotten them for a way cheaper price. some sort of money voucher wasn't even offered. very bad play pengu, fucking horrible actually.
