Like everything else in the Defuncters, I kept the rank system simple, easy, and efficient. There are 8 ranks you can achieve, based on your in-game CEP rank. Those who applied to be officers automatically start out as Lieutenants.
Rank 0: Private
Rank 1: Sargeant
Rank 2: 2nd Lieutenant (Rank 0 for officers)
Rank 3: 1st Lieutenant (Rank1 for officers)
Rank 4: Major (Rank 2 for officers)
Rank 5: Captain (Rank 3 for officers)
Rank 6: Colonel (Rank 4 for officers) note: only attainable by officers
Rank 7: General (Rank 5 for officers) note: only attainable by officers
So basically, being an officer gives you a headstart and 2 extra ranks you can gain (so officers are almost always in charge of our platoons/squads).
If you gain a CEP rank in-game, email
me so I can update your rank on the website. No lying, now.
