Hi All -

Here's the preview of Faction Ranks. The coding is underway, please post any comments / feedback to this thread.

Overview: Factions will be able to spend Faction Points for Rank Points. Each Rank Point purchased will increase the cost of the next Rank Point (ie. Rank Points get more expensive as you purchase them). Rank Points can be spent in three areas to customize a faction - Research, Combat, Construction. A faction may choose to specialize in one area or may attempt to slowly Rank-up all areas together.

Research
Rank 1 - Small bonus to get mod slots
Rank 2 - small dodge bonus
Rank 3 - small move bonus (+1 Max +1 Controlled)
Rank 4 - Unique mod (simple)
Rank 5 - Small to salvage
Rank 6 - Medium bonus to get mod slots / Additional Constuction Slot
Rank 7 - large dodge bonus
Rank 8 - Unique mod (intermediate)
Rank 9 - Large Bonus to Salvage
Rank 10 - all recruited crews start at level 2 (1 level of gunnery or piloting)
Rank 11 - Large bonus to get mod slots / Additional Constuction Slot
Rank 12 - Unique mod (advanced)

Combat
Rank 1 - Small bonus to hit
Rank 2 - Small bonus to damage (+1 damage +2 if energy)
Rank 3 - small increase chance of getting criticals
Rank 4 - Unique unit (simple)
Rank 5 - cheaper to recruit crews (-1)
Rank 6 - range bonus (+1, +2 ballistic)
Rank 7 - large increase chance of getting criticals
Rank 8 - Unique unit (intermediate)
Rank 9 - Large bonus to hit
Rank 10 - Large bonus to damage (+2 damage +4 if energy)
Rank 11 - Command bonus per kill
Rank 12 - Unique unit (advanced)

Construction
Rank 1 - Small improvement to building shields (+25 Max +1 Regen)
Rank 2 - Small build cost discount (5%)
Rank 3 - Discount to deploying personal / faction base (5%)
Rank 4 - Unique building (simple)
Rank 5 - all faction & player buildings receive simple phase shield (harder to hit)
Rank 6 - Personal / faction gunners get bonus to hit
Rank 7 - large build cost discount (10%)
Rank 8 - Unique building (intermediate)
Rank 9 - large improvement to building shields (+75 Max +4 Regen)
Rank 10 - all faction & player buildings receive advanced phase shield (much harder to hit)
Rank 11 - Faction earns free Command everyday (50 per day)
Rank 12 - Unique building (advanced)

Faction rank construx cannot be given, they start out in a shared slot so faction members can build them. Items built by a Construx earned through a Faction's Rank can only be used by members of that faction (or a faction that has the same Rank or higher in that area).

Lastly, Rank Points will be expensive, so just expect that ahead-of-time =)

its good Very Happy that way everything will be more diverse however the same problem applies for alota ideas. which is the bigger/better factions will be more dominant and the ones with tons of trainer factions can excel in each area and therefore become stronger then a good faction by itself.

Good idea, but how many Faction Points will be required to purchase Rank Points?

Unique items are just.. .. well.. just normal construx that gets added to ur faction shared slots. Uniquie (Adv) Mod.. So that means just some random Adv Mod construx gets added to shared slots of ur faction and it cannot be traded. Razz Killaaaaaa.

CABLA!!!!!

Lol I had an orgasm just reading about it all. This is going to own. Although a small suggestion would maybe make all current fp set to 0 or it cant be used. This way smaller factions still have a chance. But if you want to keep it around bigger factions like Affliction, PGF, GoL and some others are just going to rape noobs more than ever. Just a small tip to throw in lol.

I'm all go with this as long as these bonuses has no effect on Practice Planet... (Dueling Planet is for individual duels) other wise I'm all go for training, relic, and faction...

Vanoi's Note: I think... unique means can't be bought... (If you actually read) it says it can only be used by factions with the required rank once built... (Something like that)... therefore... It's 9 Completely New Construxs...
