Commander - Currently Acting Captain. This is just a name change.
Fleet Commodore - New rank replacing Rear Admiral. Will require 12 commendations. Details below.
Vice Admiral - Current Rear Admirals are being promoted to the Vice Admiral rank.
For the new Fleet Commodore rank we're planning on requiring 12 commendations, 10 of which will be specific commendations. More details on that to come. One of the benefits of earning this rank is that you will have access to our events calendar, which means any Fleet Commodore will be allowed to add events to the calendar.
Stay tuned, I'll continue adding details to this thread.
UPDATE After further discussion we're making a slight change to the Fleet Commodore rank. Rather than requiring 10 specific commendations plus two random ones, we have decided to require a certain number of commendations within each category for a total of 14. As of right now these are the numbers, I don't think they'll be changing.
2 Fed and 2 KDF Fleet Development Commendations
2 Forum Commendations
2 Historical Figures Commendations
4 Specialist Commendations
1 Achievement Commendations
1 Training Commendations
