Give battalion ability to promote

Recommended Posts

I would like to start of by saying I know battalion can promote but my suggestion is allow them to promote outside of rank cooldowns.

Climbing through ranks of the server at low-mid range ranks (below SO) in my opinion is way to time orientated and not performance based enough. 

When off cool-down I see peoples effort and motivation decrease, "I have my minimums so whats the point?"

My suggestion would mean that battalion can ignore these rank cooldowns and promote people below SO who they think have done well and deserve it. Maybe in debrief, after PTSs, they could say "CT PVT X please change your name to PFC we saw you perform well this event."

To conclude, I think this would increase the motivation of players who have done their minimums and are on cooldown, would give people a reason to follow battalions orders and try to impress, and finally would give another dynamic to debrief.

 

Please leave any thoughts or twists on this idea below. 🙂

I mean high command can already promote on cooldown, which they do. However they obviously don’t do it as much because as stated, we have cooldowns for a reason. Giving battalion the ability to promote off cooldown would be rather pointless as we would then be more or less looking at changing cooldowns as a whole.

From my point of view, cooldows are already short enough, hell, they could be longer as you usually have people sitting at 1 rank for a longer period of time anyways.

Cooldowns aren't even that slow. If the Hierarchy is active and paying attention to the spreadsheet then you should have no issue getting promoted.

I mean, everything has already been said, you can easily Climb up the ranks as it is right now (Used to be a pain in the ass 2 years ago) 

Besides giving Battalion the ability to do that in my opinion is a big no no as some of them might just give out free promotions because god Knows what retarded action the person did (all Battalion seeing this dont be offended as you all know it may or may not happen, as it has happened multiple times on discord already)

In battalion certain ranks can promote other people for example battalion COL can do up to SGTM I don't think we should take on any more responsibility in that matter as its regimental Hierarchy's decision to begin with and up to them to see if you are indeed ready for that step up or promotion, Along with what everyone else said above if battalion promote someone they follow the cooldown rules, Along with all the responsibilities us battalion already have no point taking the job away from hierarchy along with the amount of control battalion have, I also must agree with wanted not saying anyone in battalion would do this but it has been a thing in the past where certain battalion members would do stupid things and show great amount of bias behavior towards their friends.

Promotions Cooldowns are put into place for a reason, stopping people from steamrolling through the ranks and then gives them experience in each rank bracket.

Also this just seems like you wanted to be promoted after your recommendation in your Open SIM, might be wrong though 🙂

Coming from the guy who manages all of Battalion, I would not trust them with so much power, that includes my Brigadiers. Its a large thing to be able to promote people on cooldown and if any person can pratically do it then it doesnt feel special at all aswell as having the possibility to be abused HEAVILY. Along with this, Battalion's job is to recommend people who are doing well and we believe they deserve a promote, only in some cases with Battalion promote someone and those cases are few and far between.

Another issue I have is that you are trying to push something for us, without even speaking to us first. If you have a serious idea or improvement, speak to me or another member of Battalion Command because we will listen (That does not mean we will agree however) and this just feels like an idea YOU want rather then something any member of Battalion truly desires.

I made this post before my recommendation I think. It has nothing to do with me, just was annoying when I was lower ranks when people would hit there mins for trainings and then nothing would be done.

Was just idea to make the server more fun and make players more active.

Like I said to Gorilla, there was no offence meant to be given by this post. I was just trying to find a way to make COs etc. more motivated to make the server more fun inbetween events. 

I've now come to realise this suggestion wasn't the best. Thanks a lot for your in-depth response and showing me the, better, counterside to my views.

The cooldowns are there because you are not supposed to be colonel in a week. If there is a guy who is performing great and needs to be promoted high command will do that. If battalion would also be able to do that then to many people are gonna get promoted for to little reasons.

I don't have any issues with the current way battalion can promote or demote and if you ask me I think that it is still quite generous, that a Battalion Colonel can promote or demote anyone to the rank of SGTM and below (promotion only if they are off cooldown).

Giving lower battalion members the ability to not only promote but demote people of even the NCO branch is generally a bad idea, but an even worse idea is giving them the ability to ignore cooldowns when doing this. Being battalion once and also experiencing some rather iteresting behaviours from some old battalion members. I am glad they can only demote CT TRP.

Generally a bad idea. The only reason why Battalion has the ability to promote or demote is for very rare situations, which don't happen often.

At least this time you didn't start arguing in the comments, so that is a plus.

When I have I ever argued in the comments, this is my first post?
