The thing is... This isn't real life, and I'm not playing TSW to feel like im in the military.
It's cool that that's how it is done in real life, but these are made up ranks, and it just seems like such a waste to spend alot of time ranking higher in your faction, and all you really have to show for it is an extra stripe. Nobody really cares to be honest. Nobody says: "hey, nice extra stripe, you must be rank: X"
To me it seems so wasteful to add practically identical copies of the same outfit you unlock at rank 3. I would have liked to see different unlocks for higher ranks. Such as, just the suit without the gasmask, or the armour the Illuminati NPCs wear, hell just a few little Illuminati branded bits of clothing would have been nice, as I rank up.
Like I said, I'm aware that this is how it is done in real life, and in the military. TSW is neither of those, and people generally don't like being rewarded with something they essentially already have, for even more effort. It would have been nice if there were actually unique unlocks at the ranks that would provide you with the outfits.
