When the next Pippi update is released, we will be moving from a heirarchal rank system to a player tag system. The current Ranks will be changed to new player tags.
All players begin with the Normal player tag. This simply means you can play in the game, build a base, and join in on adventures. The current rank of VIP will become the Friend of the Throne tag. The rank of Supporter will become the Agent of the Throne tag. We also may add more tags in the future. These changes will take affect with the next Pippi update.
