Suggestion: You can no longer Derank after reaching a certain rank
So the idea is this: To make the ranks matter a bit more and prevent toxic behavior (intentionally de-ranking to bully other players).
Basically its an extention of the system already in play, currently once you go beyond 20 you cant Derank back to it, 18 is the lowest you can go, this is to help new players not have such a terrible time.
A level playingfield.
So the rough suggestion is:
Once you reach rank 10 you cant derank any further then 15
Once you reach rank 5 you cant derank any further then 10
Once you reach rank 1 you cant derank any further then rank 5
Now I do feel there should be some way to play with rank 20's, for example you want to play with a friend who is new to the game and dont want to expose them to players that are way more experienced then they are.
Im thinking make a shard like item, ultra rare, one time use, you go with whatever survivor you used the shard offering with to rank 20 perkless and itemless.
