    Apparently my shepherd rank will reset in 3 days or so. I have been watching this count down for weeks now.

    Why does it have to reset?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hey there @hpoonis2010,

    Apologies for the delay.

    It's my understanding that the timer / reset is used as the trigger point at which rewards are issues to the relevant players.

    We have no further information beyond this as to the exact reasoning behind this element of the system however.

    There's some more information the Shepherd Rank System in general here.

    As the discussion in this thread has trailed off somewhat, I'll be locking it from here, but please feel free to create another and get back in touch if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Gotta love people who spam all the tags - you missed playstation 🙄 🙄

    The designer said it's intentional, as they wanted to encourage a helpful attitude amongst shepherds - i.e. you do it because you want to help, not as a form of self-aggrandisement.

    @suschunga That was YOUR thinking.

    Mine was: if a player has a high rank they are proven to be more helpful.

    After all, isn't the rank related to the number of endorsements?

    As for the tags, I found that one was sufficient to cover the question yet one seems to be not enough for the ubi-gang. Therefore, I get wearied by demands and feel that ubi-web munters deserve all the spam I can muster.

    Nope, there was an interview with Trick Dempsey awhile ago where that was the explanation given. Welcome to reality.

    As for the tags

    Guess you don't do well with sarcasm either.

    @suschunga The Dempsey interview specifically called to "self-aggrandisement"?

    @hpoonis2010 still taking everything literally huh? Listen for yourself:



    The specific quote: "I want to encourage people to be nice to each other, and I want them to do it without expecting something in return"

    @suschunga Can't be arsed. I asked a question. You decide to be smarmy from point one. Good for you. If it makes you feel good about yourself, by all means go hard.

    Thank you for your input. I Shall be ignoring any further responses.

    Funny coming from someone who pulled a "I want to talk to the manager" move with the tag spam
    (edit) LOL - and of course you've done it on multiple threads 😬

    Thank you for your input. I Shall be ignoring any further responses.

    You're welcome, and thank you🤗

    The reset is intentional for (to me) unkown reasons but I am also glad it does. Wouldn't want to keep those chicken-wings behind my name tag all the time just for taking up additional (blocking vision) space. There are some that go up all the way to 99 and I can imagine they like to show off. So for those players it might be nice if their highest level achived is made visible somewhere. Personally did go up to 25 once for the commendation and never returned, rarely call for backup.

    Like to play solo since the amount of morons, self-centered, cursing, and racist people/kids you meet in some games is staggering. And whenever I do want/need to group up I just match make for daily missions and when that takes to long, back to solo again.
