    How can it be anywhere fair from someone doing the work to get rank and someone AFK all the time and get number 1. So really it just a joke and should just remove the hole system or change it to where you cannot gain a ranking by being AFK all the time.

    That's why it is there to keep up server numbers up from AFK gaming.

    Uhh what? So when processing should you just stare at the computer and twiddle your thumbs? Or even when you're fishing or cooking? Those all have auto processes. Cooking and processing require no action from you so whats wrong with going afk? No one says you can't afk either lol man people whine about the weirdest things here. No offense :)

    I am not seeing what the point of removing it would even be gaining anything. The Rankings are held by channel, not by server, and even then the only thing they have any use for is bragging rights with no reward. It's kinda just "there". Why even bother complaining about this?

    You can't AFK everything though.

    lol What are you even talking about, cooking for levels is a gigantic struggle you need weeks of active play to achieve, just the privilege of cooking for 20 minutes afk means you had to gather logs/rough stone and processed it, and if you're talking about rankings, then we're talking about hundreds of utensils which take days of gathering non stop and procesing said mat; getting alchemy/cooking to its most "afk" potential costs hours of active gameplay and lets not even talk about the mats, to actually cook/brew endlessly at the super amazing "20 minutes afk at a time", processing ranking are more of a wall of shame than an achievement, since we all know that after master there are absolutely no perks and if you're processing for ranking, the only thing you'll achieve is being the laughing stock.

    Sailing, hunting, gathering, all requiere active gameplay and those people at the top deserve that lousy medal on top of their heads at the very least, all the others give no perks at high levels and people do it for the ranking sport, another reason to game your life away in BDO, let people be.

    I'm ranked in horse training & farming. Farming is easy in case you have enough CP's to invest in fences (10CP/each) to grow stuff. Its active gameplay to obtain CP's, its also active gameplay to clear all the gardens from bugs etc, breeding crops and harvesting them. But it takes just about ~1h/daily.
    Horse training is much harder. You can just get ranked with taming horses. XP during horse lvl up is so less, you would reach not even the top 30 ranking after months. It takes me several hours daily to tame horses over a half a year to reach top 5 ranking (while using trainer costume, life xp scroll, villa life xp buff, sute tea, pet with +life skill xp).

    Why is it unfair in your world to keep the ranking for so much effort?

    I wonder if OP stare at his/her monitor while processing, cooking or fishing, in order to "speed" it up, or simply doing to say he/she doesn't do ak work.
    Thread is pointless.

    Does it matter though?
    You don't gain anything from those ranks, other than possibly attracting PK'ers if you afk with to many carebear icons :D

    It's like the only incentive to keep leveling most life skills past master+.

    Only thing remotely problematic about it, is the fact that new players can't catch up and reach top 5 ever. It's not possible when you have players that's been leveling life skills for over a year already. But again, since you don't get f all from being ranked, it hardly matters.

    Would be so much cooler actually if the rankings would be by server and not by channel, to actually see who is the real guy leading in certain professions.
