Notice: This is a new post to better explain were the old post could not.

Astria is a survival server. Not only that but its an enhanced survival server. With the last few updates the owner (Daniel_return) has made, I have played and see many players utterly killed by some of the updates. Some die to the new PvP mechanics while others are killed by the Custom Mobs (PvE).

Yet there are ways around this, Strong armor, use of Custom Items, and certain knowledge can help the player become strong. When a player attains maximum strength there very little worry if a creeper will seek up upon you while building and inflict a 16 second (Confirmed) bleeding debuff on you, it happens and you tank it. If your swarmed by zombies, it does not matter, pop a golden apple or some potions and go to town.

The problem I see are players not trying to obtain greater strength. Which leads to a lack luster playing experience. Some die so frequently to the new monsters there play experience is being ruined. This in turn ruins other players experience as the dying players request the new mobs to be removed or weakened.

Furthermore someday a player could join, that in the survival spirit will try to enforce their will upon weaker players. Such as asking for tribute or be continuously slaughtered. Only a few (a very few) players on Astria would be able to hold there own against players like this. This can also just be a player hungry for PvP and not some evil mastermind wanting to enforce there will...

This is why I am making (or remaking) this post. I have come up with a simple ranking system to help players know how strong they are. I am hoping that players will strive to climb the rank ladder to not only benefit themselves (in PvP and PvE) but to benefit the server.

I know very little of game design, however I do know that gamers like to have a way to measure how good they are. While this system cannot judge PvP or PvE skill it can judge the strength of ones weapons, armors, tools, and utility items. I have also named the more powerful ranks to pull in players who like fancy titles or have large egos.

I would like to stress that this is a unofficial ranking system and is not supported or promoted by the server owner. It is a optional ranking system and players do not need to follow it.

Ranks

Scrub:
A player with poor armor. Poorly enchanted non-diamond armor. Poor weapons.

Peasant:
A player who has mismatched armor or badly enchanted diamond armor. Does not use a full armor set or goes around with no armor or has some armor and always has elytra or some other utility item on. Does not know how to use utility items at good times.

Knight:
A player who has well enchanted diamond armor. Normally uses there armor and gear but can switch to Elytra, Boots of speed or to other utility items when required.
Each Piece of armor should be diamond and have Protection III on each armor piece. Should also have a dagger and/or shield at minimum to held bolster ones raw damage or defense. (Reinforced Structure on the shield will provide damage reduction when the shield is held)

Demi-God:
Normally uses there armor and gear but can switch to Elytra, Boots of speed, Walking Staff or other Utility Items when required.
Have a full set of Diamond armor with each armor piece having at least Protection IV. Preferably having other enchantments upon the armor such as Unbreaking III.
Have a diamond Sword or Axe with Sharpness V on it

Lesser God:
Lesser Gods are players who have At least 2 pieces of Life Armor with at least Protection IV on each piece. There other armor must also be diamond armor with Protection IV. They will not hesitate to use utility items and potions when required.
Have a diamond Sword or Axe with Sharpness V on it, and Ender Block (any level) and or Serrated blade (Sword)/Cleaving Attack (Axe) (any levels). (In some instances the Custom enchant Requirements may be waved.)

Elytra is enchanted with Tough Wings III and if the player uses a shield it should be enchanted with Reinforced Structure III or IV. Both should have unbreaking III if possible.

God:
A player will a full set of Life Armor that has at least the Protection IV enchantment on each piece. Preferably also have unbreaking III on the armor also. Have a diamond Sword or Axe with Sharpness V on it, and Ender Block III and abd Serrated blade (Sword)/Cleaving Attack (Axe) III. (In some instances the Custom enchant Requirements may be waved.)

Elytra and Shield should have the same enchantments as stated in the Lesser God Rank.
Will try to have 1 of every obtainable utility item for use. However the player does not necessarily need to use.

Currently God is the highest rank a player can achieve on the server unless one can obtain the + rank modifier.

Minor Titan:
Requirement for this rank not yet decided. 

Lesser-Titan:
Requirement for this rank not yet decided. 

Titan:
Requirement for this rank not yet decided.

+Rank
This is not a rank but a rank modifier. This means the player is above the power of that rank but has not yet reached the power of the next rank.
This can be due to them meeting some requierments of the next rank or having items that few other players have access to that increase the raw power of the player by some degree. i.e. Owning and using Battle 2.1 potions, having Fire aspect IV enchants on there weapons, etc.

Part-Time Rank
Life the + Rank Modifier this is also a Modifier. If a player is marked as Part Time then the rank they are listed as having is there true rank, however they may not have the Raw Power of the rank at all times and may prefer to keep them selves under powered for what ever reason.

Now not everything above is set in stone. Players can also drift between the ranks. Some players may meet some requirements but may not meet other. (Such as refusing to use custom items)

If you would like to chime in such as a way to help this ranking system inspire players to become stronger, post below. Think of it, builders, fighters, redstoners, all of us strong with no fear of other players or monsters getting in our way.

Player Rankings
-Dwarfinking: God
-TTL_Computer: God+
-Neon_Cyclops: God
-Lightdragon65: Unknown (Possibly Knight or Demi-God)
-x_Biyf_Tyler_x: Demi-God (Part Time)
-DiamondMiningTJ: Scrub

Edit: 7/5/2018
Changed the God and Titan rank. Added in Minor God, Demi-Titan, and Minor Titan rank.

Edit: 8-10-2018
Changed Minor God and Minor Titan to Lesser God and Lesser Titan. Added in +Rank information. Added in a list of where people stand on this Ranking System. Changed some of the text explaining the ranking system.

Edit: 8-19-2018
Flushed out descriptions for some of the ranks. Better explain that this ranking system is for the raw power of the player and is not based off of Skill. (Which would require more work to build a ranking system for). Added in weapon requirements. Introduced the concept of Part-Time rankings.

Yeah because we can only play this server how you want to play it. Maybe people don't buff up because they are busy doing other things.

this should be in the ideas section of the forums. http://astriaserverforms. ... ite.com/board/539442
also i would be titan+ as i'm very good at pvp and meet all the requirements. and to top it off haven't heard any good responses to this so most likely not going to be an acceptable ranking system.

This is not a idea for a ranking system, its a unofficial ranking system. I do not want Daniel to make it into a mandatory one. Also this system only ranks the raw power of the Weapons, Armor, and Utility Items of players not there PvP or PvE ability. I have no easy way to rank how well a Player can PvP and PvE.

Furthermore you cannot be a Titan+, the requirements are not set yet for Titan and as stated above it does not rank skill only raw power. Plus its a ranking system for PvP and PvE so just being good at PvP is not enough to rank up.
