Congrats on achieving rank 9.
Valiava- you remind me of myself a few years back when I just started ranking up the mini. I was just as excited to get every rank, I drooled over tiny bit that's left to get to that next rank, always checked my renown gains/kbs. I'm also proud that there is a small amount of players left who actually care about getting renown and ranks. Keep up the good work and take a break from freep for a bit, helps you to sort some other business.
Shwasted- You're pretty new to freepside but definitely fast pace. You will probably get a lot of trolls jumping on this thread to derail and what not, don't mind them. You deserve your rank just as much as anyone else.
Congrats to you both and good luck in the future!
P.S I believe Carerun and Evendale are closing in on their ranks as well, my early congrats to them!
