    So, as some of you may remember, back in 2012 we announced that users with a total post count of 100 or more would achieve a Grunt rank.

    And as we stated back then, this was subject to change. And that change has now arrived!

    Check out the overview below:

    Sweet.
    Now to burst out the administration's bubble a bit.

    Having the Raider, Wind Rider, Shaman and Tauren Chieftain rank icons is really confusing.
    That is because they're a reminder of the Moderator, Global Moderator, Administrator and Ralle.

    Now, besides that it's not that bad(for a refreshing look...) ~

    Edit: Will there be a customized version of these for the Terran theme?

    Yeah, I think that's something that will disappear with time. There's a different idea in the works for when we roll out Hive 2 that will make everything totally clear.

    Finally I have icons all for myself. You really did not need to make me 5 though.

    Yes, and for a good while(or eternity d:) you will be the only one with that rank icon...since no fucker posts that much since nobody's that dedicated at helping people around.

    Can I change my rank icon? Like if I have unlocked the first 10 or whatever, I want to choose which one of them to use.

    Well, currently we don't have plans for something like that yet. However, we have talked about making users able to switch to another race through their User CP i.e. Peon would become a Peasant if the user's favourte race is set to Human etc.

    But, so far, we have decided to stick with the Orcs since we've had those for 10 years and it's more organized that way.

    Perhaps in the future. But no promises.

    As it stands, I'm 99% certain DSG will make Chaos Grom before The Hive closes its doors.

    Ah, a new rank system :)
    I was confused as hell before looking on this thread lol.

    Why there are 2 thralls on 17.500 and 20.000 posts?
    I'd suggest to replace a lower rank with ogre :3

    Hmm, that's not a bad idea :thumbs_up: An Ogre before Rexxar, seems only fitting.

    There is one thing that is missing from the old ones, and it bite me in the ass twice already.

    HOVER TOOLTIPS! :D

    Its confusing as fuck seeing someone with wyvern icon all of a sudden and I just went "ooh new mod", only then I noticed.

    Of course users dont really need one, but mods/admins, like yourself should have one(currently hovering over any of them will produce nothing)

    Edit: With this kind of icons, we should also rename ourselfs to Hordeworkshop :D

    Edit2: recall, yeah right...

    Hero of the Storm has some Orc related characters and their icons. These include Thrall and Reghar.
