EDIT: Upon watching the replay, I had way more total cap reduction than I thought.....

 

Parked in cap 31 seconds into match

Noobie enemy 252U enters cap 61 seconds into match

I sat there earning rank from capture points reduced up to 150, then the rank stopped moving.

I backed out to see if driving back in would cause rank to move again... when I got out I saw 317 capture points reduced.

I go back into cap and had 120 before I arty struck the 252U... next I was shown the total was 125 capture points reduced.

An enemy defender pushed into cap where I got 40 more reduction before deciding screw this BS and started shooting. I got 50 more (+40 = 90) before I died.

 

That is 532 total capture points reduced..... AND I WAS STILL JUST AT SERGEANT

FL is just to have fun, ignore the asshattery, and hit battle again when it finishes.   If you are looking at the stats, you are doing it all wrong.

200 is the max you get credit for. Show us the replay because none of what you're saying makes sense.

I sat in cap off and on in one tank earning 532 cap defense points.

Rank stopped moving at 150.

How is that not making sense?

 

I confirmed it in later games, once you roll up on 150, your defense points stop giving rank.

so switch flanks and do something else.

 

sitting in an uncontested cap zone shouldn't earn anyone rank imho...  in fact it's the type of thing one sees on C all the time.  27 people defending C with nobody contesting it while the other two lanes are wide open...

...........

I was earning cap defense points

There was an enemy in the circle

It was NOT an "uncontested cap zone" - it was the very definition of contested

Why don't you just POST THE REPLAY because they way you're explaining your situation is extremely confusing. To the best of my knowledge you don't earn defense points just by sitting there doing nothing.

capture blocking with engineer..... sitting in cap STOPS the cap earning you points....

and because I don't want my secret defense location revealed.

Destroying tanks in and within 150m of cap circles and objectives is what seems to make my rank bar move fastest. On offense killing tanks from within that <150m ranks you faster as well.

Secret location?? Why?? Because 3 or 4 people who will almost certainly never be in a battle with you might find out your "secret"?? Really??

 

If you're not going to post the replay then just stop crying about it. There is no way in hell you racked up over 500 base defense points and with a replay someone could probably explain what you're miscalculating. But instead you can just pout and b itch after every battle because things aren't working the way you think they do. It's your choice, you can try to learn something or you can remain ignorant and angry. Perhaps you prefer the later anyway...

Secret defense location? You got some some Lucky Charms stashed in there? Quit bogarting. Share.

You are full of it.  I have defended a cap point with engineer, and I had 200+ points and was a lieutenant with ease.  I'm not afraid of giving away my secret spot, so if you want the replay I will provide it.
