Star Wars Galaxy keeps copying WOW E-mail
Monday, 02 October 2006
Not happy enough to have copied the talent system  from World of Warcraft, now Star Wars Galaxy is proud to announce the copy of the honor rankings system, renamed Galactic Civil War ranks and rewards.
Here is the description of this innovative feature Laughing

Ranks and Scoring

In the Galactic Civil War, you can earn faction points and gain new ranks through a variety of activities. Fighting both NPC enemies and player enemies will earn you GCW points that will be applied weekly to determine your current rank.

Each new rank will grant you access to higher-level rewards from your faction recruiter.

Enlisted Ranks
Imperial & Rebel






Lance Corporal/Trooper


Corporal/High Trooper




Master Sergeant/Senior Sergeant


Sergeant Major/Sergeant Major

Officer Ranks
Imperial & Rebel










Lt. Colonel/Commander





Additional Intel: Ranks
  • A Galactic Civil War page has been added to the character sheet for all players.
  • You can view another player's GCW character sheet. To do this:
    • Target another player.
    • Call up the radial menu while you have them targeted.
    • Select the option to see their GCW information.

GCW Rank Advancement

  • You can earn GCW points by engaging in a variety of factioned combat against both NPC and player enemies.
  • Each Thursday at 12PM PDT , your GCW points will be tallied to determine your current GCW rank.

Officer Ranks and Decay

  • Officers are on active duty and active participation in the war is a must! Because commissioned Officers are on active duty, Officer Ranks* 7 and above decay over time. As a result, a percentage of your GCW ranking points will be lost each week.

    * Players holding the Rank of Officer, not the profession Officer.
  • No more than 40% of your current rank will decay in a single week.
  • As rank decays, an officer will need to earn enough GCW points to overcome the amount of rank that has decayed each week.

Earning GCW Points

You can earn points by fighting on the front lines of battle in the Galactic Civil War. Here are the places and ways you can earn GCW points:

  • The Restuss GCW battlefield.
  • By destroying player GCW bases.
  • By killing Rebel and Imperial NPCs (details listed below).
  • By killing Rebel and Imperial factioned players (PvP).
  • By killing Rebel and Imperial NPC pilots in Space.
  • By killing player pilots in Space (PvP).

Point scores are based on combined ranks.




Additional Intel: GCW Points
  • GCW points are shared, split among group members.
  • GCW bonus points are rewarded for going into battle outnumbered.
  • The maximum amount of possible points that can be scored by a player each day is shared for PvP on the ground and in space.
  • Each Thursday at 12PM PDT, your weekly GCW points are converted to a rank and all current activity is cleared.
  • No more than a single rank will be awarded each week.

Ground PvP Zones

•  You will receive a bonus for combat in static PvP areas. Examples of static PvP combat zones are Restuss and the three GCW static bases. These bonuses are rewarded every 10 minutes to all players in the area.

•  The amount of points included in the bonus is determined by individual participation, total participation, total activity and faction imbalance.

Player GCW bases

•  Destruction of a player GCW base rewards a GCW point value based on the planetary control value of the base at the time it is destroyed.

  • Adrenaline Rush: Through countless battles, fear has hardened you for combat allowing you use an adrenaline rush to your advantage. Your combat skills are quickened in the face of danger.
  • Last Man Standing: Seasoned by many battles, you alone have been the deciding factor between victory and defeat. Pushing yourself beyond the abilities of common soldiers, you are destined to be the last person standing.
  • Retaliation: After years in the battlefield, your mind has instinctively learned to suppress pain by immediately counter-attacking your enemies. As you are wounded, so shall they be wounded.
  • Unstoppable: Your body has become so used to pain and wounds that you ignore all but the most severe. When other solders would be on their knees begging for mercy, you will fight on...unstoppable.
  • Legendary Warrior: Soldiers and warriors throughout your faction recognize you as a legend. Your presence on the battlefield will dramatically boost the morale and combat abilities of those around you.
  • Imperial Airstrike: Your high rank in the Imperial army gives you the authority to call down a TIE Bomber to attack your enemies.*
