We should get paid out for the highest rank you were able to obtain during a given 24 hour period.
Why? Because the current system is a bit on the broken side. What's broken? AI for one. Another is constantly getting error messages saying your opponent is currently engaged in battle. The other is the WORST when you get the message that says someone is in battle with YOU! If you are live and in game, you should be able to take over your team on defense. AI is so bad. It is because of this broken system that we should be paid out for the highest obtained rank during a 24 hour period. If EA decides to fix AI or allow us to operate our team on defense then we can switch the system back.
