Sorry but a unified ranking system based on Clan Ranks would be epic fail and not make sense in any way, shape, or form considering we do not even have an ETA on how and when the Clans will become playable. So, either a unified system with generic, land forces based ranks or House specific (highly preferable).

- Lance Corporal
- Lance Sergeant
- Force Commander
The General rank was removed in 2455 by Jasmine Liao due to a (failed) coup, and was not brought back until Sun-Tzu Liao's Xin Sheng (circa 3060). So, in this (Romano Liao) era, if they go the House fluff route, it won't be the Chinese names.

I agree with this, house specific ranks for the house loyalists.
General Ranks for the merc units.
Clan Ranks for the Clans.
It makes being a member of the FRR mean some different than being a Member of the FWL or DC or FedCom.
Just my view, helps to separate out who belongs with whom, and some titles only are meaningful attached to some lore.

Thats about the stupidest idea i have heard in a long time.. using Clan titles for everyone when they are not even in the game.

I like the idea of, instead of 'ranks,' position titles. Proven lance commanders are called just that, Lance Commanders. Everyone else is a MechWarrior, and on those occasions where it's needed, a Company Commander is designated as needed. Keep the factional ranks for those people who want to use them in their individual play groups.

They mean nothing anyways. Once they institute some player control for the factions then we can argue semantics.

I acknowledge the utility of simplified ranks, like most militaries have done.
But the truth is, most militaries these days operate in a multi-national environment. So a US CPT in the 10th Mountain needs to be able to tell that the Canadian Officer wearing a Maple Leaf insignia for his rank is a Brigadier General, and that the British Officer with the Red and White hackle is a member of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (and BTW, that's 'left-tenant, not loo-tenant!).
No doubt there will be some confusion over 'who outranks who' in Combined ops. And 'guilds' might decide to convert ranks to SLDF equivalents.
Whatever the Devs decide to roll with, I'll play either way. Just my two filthy lucre.
