Zombies Ranking System Explained
Contents:
1. How To Rank Up.
2. Tally Marks.
3. Emblem Changing.
4. Deranking.
1. How To Level Up.
The level up system is complicated. You must level your tally marks and your emblems. Leveling tally marks is based on IN-GAME stats. The better you do the higher your tally changes. More Kills/Headshots, and few Downs/Deaths is what it is based on. If you have 1 tally mark you need to score higher for the next 2 games to go to get your second tally.
2. Tally Marks.
Tally marks show how much you need to change you level. They go to 5 for a certain level. Stated above it tells you how long until you level up. 0-5 (0 as the lowest - 5 as the highest). You can lose a tally if your stats start to suck.
3. Emblem Changing.
Leveling up changes your picture. A single bone is level 1, and it goes up to a skull with 2 shotguns with 5 tally marks. You need to get 5 tally marks per level to level up. Earning tally marks is a b*tch, but it is well worth it. The levels go to 1 - 8.
4. Deranking.
This is not my favorite thing, but if you start to do poorly in matches and have a lot of Downs/Deaths you will lose a tally mark. If you lose enough tally marks you lose a level. If you don't play Zombies for a while you will be deranked.

If you don't play the game you can be still be de-ranked, even if your stats haven't changed.
I've also gotten into a game where I had 800+ Kills and 1 Down (Death), but my emblem and tally marks stayed the same..

If you had 5 tally marks through those levels you must be good at it. the only way to keep 5 tally marks thorugh levels is to level up then get 5 tally marks in 1 game which would be outrageos

It's nice that people try to help and all, but why claim that you know how it all works if you clearly don't. If the ranking system was this simple everyone wouldve known how it works from the beginning. But the truth is no one knows how it works still.

That is because you need a certain amount of kills. Kills are like Multiplayer XP. You need 50,000 XP to level from 34-35.(Multiplayer Example). You must need ateast 2,500 kills before you level.

In my opinion this is not "simple". PLUS this is research from day 1. Most of the information provided is from Treyarch Employees. Which have been nice enough to reply to emails stating how it works. CLEARLY you don't know anything. You should really think about how long it takes people to take the time to find this info out for you.

I didn't meen to offend you and like I said I apreciate the help. But really so many people are saying that the whole thing cant be based on just kills, headshots and downs. How can it be that people who never get far and die all the time got a 'higher' rank than people who dont? And how do you explain stuff like this:
If you don't play the game you can be still be de-ranked, even if your stats haven't changed.
I've also gotten into a game where I had 800+ Kills and 1 Down (Death), but my emblem ans tally marks stayed the same..
Are you saying that you really need 2 good games in a row in order to be able to progress?

If you got your info from treyarch maybe you do know what you're talking about but than just say so from the start and tell us what they told you.
So many people spread false info on stuff like this, so how can I know if you´re making this up or not?

Its funny because I ddin't play yesterday and lost a tally, which also made me lose my blue eyes. Played a simple Round 12 match and got my Tally back to 5. Its not that hard. And I've had 5 Tallys and Blue Eyed Knife Skull for a while and have played some good games. All it depends is on overall leaderboard status. Gotta get high in everything from kills to rounds. All of it. The rank is a live reflection of you compared to everyone else. That's why if you don't play for a day like me, you lose rank, or if you get many downs/deaths in a match, you lose rank because adding on to those leaderboards lowers you rank within them.

Now this theory actually makes a little bit of sense.

I think this could possibly be it, but I am at the top of my friends lb yet some of my friends at higher levels than me.

Compare your stats to your friends in EVERYTHING. If you are still higher than them in everything, then we have a problem. It could be a k/d ratio that may be affecting you. Whats your rank and one of your friends higher than you?

Well I am the top of everything except for downs :tongue:

But the thing I don't get is I have some people that played once and downed once, then they are at the top of the LB. So I think the downs LB is really messing me up. I will try to improve my KD though. I think it really got killed when I boosted for Quick Revive, since thats the first time I got deranked. So it could be related to the LB positions.

Also right now I am a skull with 3 dashes and I have friends with a Blue eyed skull and 5 dashes. I'll look more in depth at all this when Im done with HW, because I think you are definitely on the right track

And maybe the ammount of dashes is your KD?

The tally marks must have to do with how did that day or something. B/c i didn't play almost all day and checked and I lost a tally mark. Man im so confused about this DAM RANKING SYSTEM GAH :mad:
