I find arguments to support both approaches. A pure percentile system would be completely immune to inflation and
deflation (in the unlikely event it ever happens). But maybe it could have some odd results resulting in high ranks with very low score. That is why I say that maybe a minimum score per rank would be good. But certainly, I don't know.

The only difference is that the second places a bit more people in the lower ranks, and the third even more than the second.
About a percentile system (either mixed with minium score or pure without minimum score) The only problem that I find is, what would happen as active number of players changes? The way that I can think to solve it is to update the rank only when a player finishes a game. Then, if he does not play for 30 days but still participates in the forums, he would be listed as the rank he had adter his last game (could be considered some sort of retired sergeant, captain, major, wathever). If he plays again, he will still have his last rank, and it will only change when he finishes another game.
