Development of ranks was split into two major steps. One was easy and we shall call that "Stuff Game Design did" and then we had another much bigger and difficult task which we shall entitle "Trying to figure out names for the bastards", and I would like to take a little time to explain each.
Stuff Game Design did Here is what I originally planned to put in this section: "Twiddle their thumbs" But apparently I actually have to make it seem like everyone did something so, basically, we had the grand vision. This was having medals and ranks as one big design and implementing the whole lot. We soon realized that medals were quite a lot of work and while we could get a bogged version in, if we wanted to do it properly we had to shelve it until after the Empyrean Age expansion.
So that was shelved and we were left with ranks. This is a quite simple concept that I shall now try to elaborate on, but no doubt end up confusing people. Ranks are tied to the standing you have to the "Militia Corp", not the faction, and this is important because everyone starts at standing zero when they first join. As you gain in standing towards your Militia Corp, so you gain in rank. You start at the lowest rank which is standing zero and then gain a rank for every full point of standing gain.
So you would next get promoted and advance in rank at standing one, and then standing two, all the way up to standing nine. You can also lose standing and get demoted in the same way. In addition for every rank gained your overall faction standing gets an incremental increase.
Ranks are displayed on your character sheet in a new tab entitled "Decorations", where you can view your current rank. What else? Oh yes, if you leave the faction and later rejoin it, you retain your previous rank. In future expansions of Factional Warfare we are going to look at linking additional functionality and rewards into ranks like and these are not promises, just current ideas tying them into dungeons in space and adding additional equipment and ships to the loyalty store that will only be available at certain ranks.
Trying to figure out names for the bastards This is where all the work went, let me assure you. No one wants to be a rank which sounds like something from a B movie, people want to look at rank and think that it is "cool". They also want their rank to be "cooler" than the previous rank.
Non-flagged players cannot gain access to these channels. Players enlisted into Factional Warfare may receive role-playing and military mails sent from their faction entity. Miscellaneous 5 songs have been added to the jukebox for your in-flight listening pleasure. Changes Edit Ships Heron : capacity increased to m3 to match the other astrometrics frigates.

Learn how and when to remove this template message Ships in Eve Online are organized into classes, from tiny frigates only a few dozen meters in length to gigantic capital ships up to 17 kilometers long as large as whole cities. Ships fill different roles and vary in size, speed, hull strength, and firepower; smaller ships are generally faster and capable of disabling their targets, but lack the damage output necessary to destroy larger ships, while capital ships do very high amounts of damage but have difficulty striking smaller, mobile targets. Each of the four races has its own unique ship design preferences and strengths and weaknesses, although all races have ships that are meant for the same basic roles and are balanced for play against each other. This means that there is no "best ship" in Eve Online. Furthermore, unlike many online games, Eve Online does not feature racial bonuses; that is, characters of different races do not gain intrinsic advantages for flying ships designed by their own races. Thus, players are encouraged to use starships that meet their preferred style of play, and the game does not provide incentives for playing as one race rather than another.
