The Mandalorian military is built on a system of battle prowess and leadership. Prestige is earned by preforming tasks that reflect Mandalorian values. Those warriors who are able to amass much respect within Mandalorian culture are granted higher ranks within the Mandalorian military, giving them access to command posts (over soldiers and ships), as well as granting them the respect and loyalty of their fellows. Likewise, performing acts contrary to Mandalorian values (such as showing cowardice in battle) could result in the loss of prestige. That being said, every Mandalorian warrior has different qualities and mixture of skills that don't fit into the same mold. While some are great combatants, others show remarkable skill in leadership. There is no cookie-cutter path to ranking up within the faction, but Rally Masters and beyond become so by displaying leadership skills. These individuals have proven themselves to be an asset to the faction whether by leading strikes against the enemy, leading expansion efforts, rallying other clans or any other steps that help unite the Mandalorian people. Rank-ups are concerned with three main categories on a case by case basis: 1. Missions 2. PvP/combat threads 3. Leadership In order to continue ranking up within the faction, an individual needs to demonstrate that they can show a combination of skills that will rally others to their cause. There is no specific number to hit and missions that involve PVP can be counted as both a mission and a pvp thread.
