    Tim is ahead of Tom by two points (in rank).

    Please check.

    Re: Tim's level is twice as high as Tom's.

    Number three is correct with or without in rank. The other two have errors.

    What is the correct way to write first two sentences?

    What I should be using in place of "in rank"?

    Nothing. Either include it in the sentence or leave it out. It's correct either way.

    Tom is ahead of Tim by two ranks. Is it correct?

    The first should have a comma after game. The second needs an indefinite article before higher.

    Re: Tim's level is twice as high as Tom's.

    In Crisis Action, Tim is two levels higher than Tom.

    As long as your listener is familiar with the game, they'll know what you mean. Anyone who's not familiar with the game won't care.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Tim's level is twice as high as Tom's.

    "Twice as high as" isn't the same as "two levels higher".

    If Tom is ranked at level 6, and Tim's level is twice as high, then Tim is ranked at level 12.
    If Tom is ranked at level 6, and Tim's level is two levels higher, then Tim is ranked at level 8.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
