    Hi, I have been playing Havoc MC for about 8-9 years and have had zero complaints. I currently have mythic rank because I really enjoy this server. Today I found out that havoc has a Pokémon server now. Before anything else I got really excited because I have the max rank I was going to get a lot of special perks, however that is surprisingly not the case. After some research I found that there is a separate set of ranks for this sub-server. At first glance this is a good idea for the upper staff because it will gain them some money. However if their goal is to grow the server and not make a quick buck they’re going about it all wrong. Take me for example, I paid real money to get a rank for the havoc server. This entails anything under havoc i should get my rank equivalent rewards per sub-server, I get rewards for towny, and Mining dead. I do not get rank perks for star wars and gtm but that is ok because rank is irrelevant. Pixelmon is somehow different. It has perks, it has ranks, HOWEVER it is somehow ok for the ranks to be separate? Why should I pay for two ranks for one server. If it was up to me the people that bought ranks on this new server would get either rank exchanges or store credit. There doesn’t need to be two separate ranks for one server. Frankly it’s quite sad to see a great server do something like this to make money.

    Hello,
    I'm sorry you feel this way but I personally disagree.

    Pixelmon isn't supposed to be incorporated into Havoc as deep as the ranks. It's a modded server and it's on a different API. It's a really hard switch to allow it to BE the same API and it causes more bugs than it's worth.

    Separate ranks are not to make separate ranks, it is to balance Pixelmon. Look at towny-2 having ranks. Everyone joined, eco went downhill really quick. This balances that side of the playing field. Plus, Pixelmon itself through Havoc has MANY F2P options. We don't expect nor want the extra money for the rank, that's why there's in-game pokedex completion ranks. If you max that out, you nearly have ALL the benefits as the top rank on Pixelmon.

    Lastly, I want you to go look at other Pixelmon networks/servers. I'm pretty sure 99-100% of them have separate ranks PER server. That's even the different Pixelmon ones, like pixelmon-1, pixelmon-2. Separate ranks. Then even vanilla has different ranks than Pixelmon.

    I get your frustration, but there are SOOOOO many in game options to receive that you dont even NEED a rank personally. It's more a support system, rather than a means for money as that was never the plan through any of the Managers+ to think about.

    I hope you can understand why it's this way, but supporting the server through ranks sometimes is just how to keep Pixelmon afloat.
