I just posted some news on the website, but copied it here too since I'm sure there will be plenty of discussion about it!
http://news.americasarmy.com/changeisintheair/

With the full release of America’s Army: Proving Grounds fast approaching, we have a lot of exciting things going on. Here’s a look at some of the changes that you will start seeing soon.


New Forum
The first big change you will see is the new and improved forum! We are changing our forum software to take advantage of single-sign-on (use your AA account to login to the forum, instead of a forum-only account). This should get more people involved in discussions since you won’t have to create a new account and information from the forum can integrate with the website and game better than ever before. The current forum will be archived and made available to read, but no new posts will be allowed. We will let you know when the switch will be made in the next few weeks.

New Website
Our web team has been hard at work to bring you the most relevant AA information in a very cool way. Expect the americasarmy.com website to look very different for the full release.

Stats and Scoring
After the full release, we will keep the stats from the beta available to view in your profile along with the new stats. There will be less scoring events, new values for the number of points for each event and a new rank system that starts at E-1 Private and advances through E-9 Sergeant Major of the Army with 5 levels within each rank (except E-1 only has one level). There will also be a host of new challenges for each weapon that will unlock optics and skins.

Opt-in Weekends
In the next few weeks we are going to begin testing new features and collecting feedback. Our goal is to allow anyone that wants to test with us the option to opt-in to an early release. It will only be available for a few days at a time as we collect feedback, scoring data and bug reports. All scoring data will be reset at the end of each event and we will be hosting multiple events before the release. Map creators should be sure to get in on these events because you can use them to update your maps and have them ready to publish right after the release. Any sounds that were used in a map will have to be updated to the new package since all sounds have moved.

Opt-ins will be a tell tale of what the game will be upon release. I look forward to the critics.

So we're looking at a maximum of 41 levels. I'd assume E1 would be level 0 to make it look cleaner.

E1 - Lvl 0
E2 - Lvl 1-5
E3 - Lvl 6-10
E4 - Lvl 11-15
E5 - Lvl 16-20
E6 - Lvl 21-25
E7 - Lvl 26-30
E8 - Lvl 31-35
E9 - Lvl 36-40

I guess it's a good way to mix real life rankings with the honor system. Should be interesting to see how scoring works.

Anyway, should be fun to see what the opt in weekends will be like.

The problem is if certain optics aren't allowed...then suddenly I have to be a high level to get certain sights. If that happens, then the red dot better be allowed for comp players, because I hate just going into a pub to earn xp points....

:/
