So I just checked Jay's profile in game. He is a Gummy Shark yet he is Rank 16 and has 770 hours. Guys? XD
EDIT: Call me crazy too, but weren't the ranks before a bit more progressive? I'm seeing that as a Whale Shark myself I'm only "allowed" to Host Dojo. Welp ._.
Whale Shark is non-officer rank (close to zero responsibilities, except for those of all ranks (via rules)), but still much more than just Gummy Shark, in LE words: "Whale Sharks as it is an honorary title for those who have a long standing with the clan or past GW."
Also, promoted Jay to Hammerhead rank. CG!
