Faction rank: Misc


SWG Wiki

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From SWG Wiki

In order to progress up the ranks, players need to accumulate GCW points. However promotions are not granted immediately upon obtaining the required points, as ranks are only updated once a week, Thursdays at 2000hrs GMT.

Officer ranks are much harder to achieve then enlisted ranks, as they decay with time. You not only need to collect GCW points to progess in these ranks but you also need to gather them to even stay at your current rank.

Earning GCW Points

Earning GCW points is a lot more difficult than collecting Faction Points was, however, there are similarities between the two.

  • Players still earn points via PvE & PvP on the ground and in space.
  • Players can still get an inspiration buff from an Entertainer that will give them a 15% bonus when earning points (- this buff package is called "Flush with Success").

Ground Combat

Players can earn GCW Points by both PvE and/or PvP.

Factional NPCs

Players can kill Rebel or Imperial NPCs for GCW points.

To get credit for the "kills", the NPC's CL must be within 86% of your character's CL or above. However, you only need to get a single hit in to get the points.

Factional PCs

Players can earn points for fighting against other players of the opposite GCW faction. The restrictions are that the CL of the PC killed is within 70% or higher of the CL of the PC. The total amount of points earned is also determined by how much damage the PC did to the other PC, and the rank of the PCs.

Here is a breakdown of what CLs will earn the player points.

Attacking PC's CL Target PC's CL
90 63+
85 60+
80 56+
75 53+
70 49+
65 46+
60 42+
55 39+
50 35+
45 32+
40 28+
35 25+
30 21+
25 18+

PvP Bases

Players will receive bonus points every 10 minutes for engaging in combat in Restuss, Tactical Training Facility, Weapons Development Facility, or Talus Weapons Depot. The amount of points included in the bonus is determined by individual participation, total participation, total activity and faction imbalance.

Faction Bases

Bases placed by other players can be destroyed for GCW Points. The amount of points earned from destroying the bases varies on the type of base deployed.

To be able to destroy the base, there needs to be at least 5 different professions working together: Bounty Hunter, Commando, Medic, Officer, & Smuggler. For instructions on how to destroy a base, see the Faction Base destruction article.

Space Combat

Factional NPC Pilots

When in space, players can get points by destroying Imperial or Rebel NPC ships. The total amount of possible points is modified by the difference between what Tier the PC is and what Tier the NPC is. A 10% bonus is applied for destroying factional ships in Deep Space or Kessel. The Imperial Star Destroyer, the Rebel Freedom Station and a Corellian Corvette grant 30 GCW points.

Tier of NPC Tier 1 PC Tier 2 PC Tier 3 PC Tier 4 PC Tier 5 PC
Tier 1 4 points 4 points 0 points 0 points 0 points
Tier 2 6 points 8 points 6 points 0 points 0 points
Tier 3 6 points 10 points 12 points 8 points 0 points
Tier 4 6 points 10 points 14 points 16 points 10 points
Tier 5 6 points 10 points 14 points 18 points 20 points
