The player's Rank is determined by the total number of Commendations they received from other players.

Players under the rank of Cpl cannot create Squads or make Map Posts.

Players under the rank of SSgt cannot create Regiments.

You can see your Rank and Level in the player menu by pressing F1.

Rank and Level never reset. You keep them even if you change faction or change server shard.


The Commendation system allows players to reward the good behavior of other players in game. Commendations can be earned through positive actions such as; enemy kills, friendly heals/revives, building structures, destroying enemy structures, and supplying bases.

You can see your available commendations in the server screen by pressing F1. Commend other players by clicking the up arrow next to their name in the server player list or through Alt+Click context menu on player model.

Receiving commendations is currently the only way to advance Rank and gain access to Squad creation.

The amount players can give Commends are limited to giving 3 per day towards each player, with a maximum of 20 players per day. The amount of Commends a player can receive is unlimited.

The player's level is distinct from their rank. Doing useful actions slowly increases your level (farming resources, killing enemies, etc...).


The rank structure is the exact same as the current British Army ranks.
