Add more Trooper Ranks

(2)Your suggestion:
Add more ranks to the server.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: 
Going through the ranks as a normal trooper not a officer can be really fast. You get promoted 4 times before you become a SGT. That is barely anything before you become a main member of a battalion. This would cause a lot of troopers to get stuck at CC. If there were more ranks in between CT and SGT it would help the flow of promotions and even make SGTs feel more like actual NCOs. As of now being a SGT almost means nothing. The only time SGTs have true respect is when they reach Sergeant Major.

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: 
Some negatives to some would be longer times between when you become a SGT (I see this as a positive)
Some people would have issues with how they would change their ranks accordingly depending on what ranks might be added.

I personally dislike the time it takes, it decentivises my play time due to investment needed. 

If there were ways to rank up efficiently early at the same time I'd understand but, eh -1

We used to have even less ranks and they already added more, adding even more ranks would force us to come up with dumb names and it would just seem excessive to have to learn a bunch of extra ranks that don't really exist.

-1. There is a good amount of ranks and has a good spread between CT to NCOs.

I'm gonna start promoting two ranks at a time if we add anymore ranks.

My more serious response: If you manage your men well and know what you're doing with regards to rewarding people on their merits, then you won't have to worry about how many ranks there are. Trouble regarding the number of ranks usually only arises when someone has a trooper who doesn't get promoted much if at all. These troopers should be worked on and expected to grow continually as part of the battalion. If they don't grow then they don't get promoted, and to have an excuse to promote such individuals tends to have significant effects on standards as a whole. 

There has to be some degree of callousness to promotions if you want to set a solid standard, because at some point a trooper is going to reach their 'skill wall' where they have to put in the effort to overcome their own weaknesses. From my experience, it's best for that to happen earlier rather than later.

I should mention, though, that I accept that others may have different views on this; and I in no way intend to argue against or demean those who have a contrasting opinion.

I think I speak for everyone when I say there is no way in hell that I am re-learning all the ranks, their abbreviations, and the special abbreviations for certain battalions. Nah, let's never add more ranks again thx

-1, There are enough ranks as there is, I dont think we need more. Plus if anything you could always make the Officers just promote a lot less. Probably like once every 1-2 weeks so that way it could feel like a really long time till they get to SGT rank. Its also up to the officers if they want that trooper to SGT rank as well
