They decided to go with a common name for Japanese and Western territories that more immediately conveys what this new rank is all about.

So, so close to Master Race.

But of course they've now put themselves into a corner if they ever want to go higher. What's above "Master Rank?" Whatever.

Makes sense considering all the newcomers who might start wondering what happened to A-F ranks.

So the reason they said Iceborne has something "equivalent" to GR was because of the name change, hm.

Yeah, but they're very clear about it being only a name change. It IS a G rank update.

Well, I did kinda figure it would be something like a different name, just I figured a rank actually named GR would show up later. But in retrospect simply renaming it is both the most obvious and the simplest thing to do, I just never thought that they would do that.

There was no reason to think they would preserve it though, with all the other series traditions they've set out to trample upon.

Ultimate rank.


Revisiting the roots of the PSO inspiration, huh.
