A player at Planets.Nu can achieve ranks by simply playing the game and by ranking high when the game ends. During a running game several (but less) points for a player’s ranking are awarded, too, in order to reflect his/her activity while playing.
Awarded points are multiplied by the tenacity multiplier that reflects a players fighting spirit.

Ranks allow players to qualify for games at higher difficulty levels in Planets.Nu’s handicap system (maximum rank and minimum rank games) and to qualify for championship games.

Apart from the ranking also Campaign ressources (to research new ships) are awarded for active and successful gameplay.
