    Rank Off by 1%. Kind of Weird...

    This is a very small issue, but seems a little odd. Probably a programming glitch, although you'd think they'd be using the same Rank function or storage location. I noticed that the Helm and Right Hand Panel are off by 1% in Rank. I noticed it when I hit 1% Deadly, Helm said I was 2% Deadly...

    Grinding Imp and Fed Rank

    Hello Commanders! Apologies if this has been posted previously (if so please direct me to the post) But is there a new efficient way to farm imp and fed rank? Read that the old Ngalinn-Mainani route was nerfed but don't want to waste time seeing if its true or not as its rather out the way...

    Hi guys , its Vampire .. I would like to tell you guys about a major fundamental flaw in the game regarding combat rank. When it comes to combat , you have three different types. Most people think there is two but how I see it in this game there are three. The first one is when a commander...

    rank not recognised

    I have a fed rank of petty officer, but when I go in to some stations it says I don't have the required rank to purchase an assault shop or a drop ship. is this a bug or am I missing something?

    Superpower weekly ranking...

    Sorry if this has been covered but I have searched (Trigger warning snowflakes...I'm about to use CAPS) EVERYWHERE!!! I'm wondering on what criteria the superpowers are ranked each week. Not MY superpower rank, I'm talking about Hudson, Mahon, Grom, etc... What must happen for them to move up or...

    Quad Elite and CQC Decals

    Suggestion: Please give CQC pilots the ability to display their CQC ranks with pride on their ships as decals. CQC remains the only rank without representation as decals, and it would be really nice have those ranks available for display in game, especially on fighters! There is also now a...

    Fed Rank progression slowing down by 50% - why?

    Hi all, I'm out at Ceos/Sothis doing the grind for a Corvette. I'm Elite ranked explorer and only broker trader, and so I found that the passenger missions to Sirius Atmospherics were more lucrative than running data/cargo trade between stations - going from Lieutenant Commander and Post...

    NPC crew training

    With the introduction of the Krait and newfound popularity of SLFs, maintaining a stable of upper rank crew members seems more relevant than ever (especially for someone who expects to use, and eventually lose, them in conflict with other CMDRs). I've generally found it most efficient to allow...

    Rank Grinds.

    I know there are prolly a hundred people a day complaining about this but is there any plans to change it? I used to be okay with it but now any place i look that used to be good Rank grinding place is at War or crowded with independent stations. Sethos and Ceos are no longer an option it...

    Engineers Increasing Engineer Ranking without performing unneccesary upgrades

    tl;dr How does Hand in bounty vouchers to Broo's Legacy work for raising rep? I have Broo Tarquin unlocked and i'm currently at the base rep level 1 rank. I've previously leveled reps of engineers by doing upgrades i don't need and then cancelling them and then doing the ones I want. However...

    Balance concerning low ranked players in big ships (Naval rank rant)

    It has come to my attention after the release of 3.0, that there are certainly more players with either the cutter or the corvette, given the changes they made towards mission rewards and the reputation gain with the corresponding federation or imperial navy ranks many of these players which...

    Newcomer / Intro Data deliver missions- credit toward trade rank?

    So I haven't been able to find answer to this question so I thought I would try here. Do data delivery missions/courier(data delivery) missions give credit toward trade rank? If so, do bonuses received on those data delivery missions also count toward trade rank or is only the original amount...

    A solution to the whole "rank grind" thing thats been going on

    Remove the military rank altogether. Make the rank locked permits attainable via missions to complete. Alliance now has two ships (kinda) in the type-10 and chieftain, those aren't rank locked but can only be purchased in alliance space or at Jameson Memorial. I mean, you already need a god...

    New naval rank grind meta working as intended?

    Given the recent attention being given to skimmer missions and mining missions, both being exploited for massive potential credits, I wonder if it's working as intended that people are able to grind to King from low Imperial ranks in no more than 4 hours doing data missions from Mainani to...

    You buy a low grade fighter pilot, they stick around and build up rank as they already do, but what about having the ability to sell them for a profit when they are highly ranked? The football industry has been doing this for years.

    Imperial Navy rank-up missions MIA in 3.0...?

    Firstly, you don't have to explain to me how to rank up or how and from whom to expect / find the navy rank-up mission. I'm well beyond 100%, so its not a rounded up 100% on the display either. I've never had any issue getting the rank-up mission within a short time after passing 100% from an...

    Empire Rank

    Looking for a system where I can make Empire Rank. Not having much luck as they seem to be pretty spread out within the systems and nobody likes them much. I really want a couple of their bigger ships so it could take awhile but it's gotta be possible right?!

    Fed rank up missions

    Hi all, has anyone experienced issues with finding rank up missions since the update? I am 100% both categories in fed rank. I have looked in 3 diff systems both controlled and with fed factions but cannot find a navy rank mission. Thoughts?

    Why are we being robbed of grade 5 in the engineering conversion for no reason?

    I realize all 'legacy' grade 5 engineering mods are different. But its Frontier's responsibility to convert their customer's stuff without stealing the fruits of their annoyingly intractable and extremely time consuming grind. You shouldn't ever need 27 spreadsheets and 5 online tools to play...

    How about some benefits for Federation/Empire/Alliance rank?

    How about some extra perks for all the blood, sweat, and tears needed to grind rank? The permitted systems should have some extra perks too. Commanders would be much more interested in ranking. Anyone want to share their ideas for perks?

    Group rank/ Group Leader Goals/ Rank Rewards

    Sothis/Ceos is indeed back 2/8/2018 Lots of Boom and strategic data missions back and forth. I've tried other places for this but the low station count and short ls from entry point of the ones in these 2 systems can't be beat for grinding rank anyway. I timed round trip: Docked at Ceos...
