The Imperial Navy Combat Rating System (INCRS) was developed to give Navy pilots something to strive for on both the single-player and multi-player fronts. Under this system, all commissioned naval officers who own a multiplayer platform are eligible to obtain a combat rating (INCR) which reflects a combination of their live combat skill and experience.
The titles, along with the quotas of qualifying live combat kills/victories necessary to obtain them, are as follows...
- Ace 1st Level (AC1): 120
- Ace 2nd Level (AC2): 105
- Ace 3rd Level (AC3): 90
- Ace 4th Level (AC4): 75
- Expert 1st Grade (XP1): 60
- Expert 2nd Grade (XP2): 50
- Expert 3rd Grade (XP3): 40
- Expert 4th Grade (XP4): 30
- Marksman 1st Class (MM1): 20
- Marksman 2nd Class (MM2): 15
- Marksman 3rd Class (MM3): 10
- Marksman 4th Class (MM4): 5
"Qualifying live combat kills/victories" refers to the fact that the Supreme Commander must give approval for a multiplayer event's kills/victories to count towards the above combat ratings. It is the duty of individual competition hosts to request this approval, and to submit a complete log of wins to the Supreme Commander and Commander of the Navy upon the event's completion, so that Officer Profiles may be correctly updated.
To further address the need for multi-player pilots to be able to play "qualifying" matches on their own schedules, however, Grand Admiral Daemon declared that all standard combat victories obtained on the GE Combat Ladders shall count toward an Imperial Navy officer's combat rating.
Officers who have achieved an Imperial Navy Combat Rating (INCR) may list it on any Galactic Empire related list of accomplishments, and are additionally granted the privilege of appending the appropriate abbreviation (above) in parenthesis onto the medals line of their IDndash;Line.
An example is as follows...
- LT Kardock / Avenger 1–1 / ISD Demolition / Imperial Navy
[OE] [GS] [SS] [BS] [MoM] (AC1)
