I have noticed this small issue, before Omega ever came to play on the AOW scene.
Intermittently, I have found that a rank would suddenly appear after someone purchases a machine, or some other item that will have global HUD message to all players.
This rank only lasts for a few seconds, and fades away.

Ohh, this. I thought that this was normal, but was surprised when I saw a Double star when I just joined the game.

Most likely a boofed hud-message somewhere.

If only I knew what it said...

Sorry, it also happens if there is no HUD messages at all. I caught two ranks that did on me, when there was no HUD notice messages.

This could be a Skulltag bug.

I figured that it had some purpose unknown to me.

..I'm not really sure how the hell something like this can be a Skulltag bug, given AOW's clusterfuck of HUD messages as it is.

I doubt it. Most likely, some script might access another script that should not run.
I have in mind at looking at this soon.

I think that this happens when other player rank up.... you know like the other bug that shows "you get 50 xp and 75$" on every player when somebody dies

No - it's exactly what I suspected - it's HudMessages being shown without the font being set. A quick peek at the code and I already saw one error with the sudden death script. If this happened more often during sudden death, well now you know.

I'm working on fixing it now.

Beat me to it :P

We should try to round up a few players and test it out, after the hotfix is submitted. This way, we will know for sure, if there is something else going on or if it is fixed.

Fixed. (Hopefully?)

And about the player round-up - yes, definitely. A few permanent positions are open for testers who want it. :)
