CEPs


If you get CEPs how will you become an actual "commander". What will be your responsibilities? What defines that person as a commander and what advantage does he have as that?

when you get enough CEP ranks, you will be consideed a command. This means that you have sucsessfuly completed a great amount of missions. When you become a commander, you get to enter a chat room with other commanders from your empire.

BEPs and CEPs are compeltely seperate. Earned differently, different abilities, different concepts. No moving from one to another

You want BEPs kill somebody
You want CEPs get a team and take a base

I dont know if theres a total limit on points added together, but it'd make sence that a great commander CAN be a great fighter if he wants. But a big time commander would be too busy to fight most of the time.

Are we certain that the only way to get CEPs is to command a squad who successfully takes over a base? It's good in one way and horrible in another. It's good in that it will severely limit the amount of people with command abilities because CEPs are so difficult to get. It's bad for the same reason. I was thinking the commander of a squad should get some amount of CEPs for each kill his squad gets. Let's say a person gets 10 BEPs for one infantry kill, maybe the commander should get 1 CEP for that kill. 50 BEPs for a tank or aircraft kill, 5 CEPs for the commander.

Thoughts?

the ONLY way to get CEPs is to be in command of a squad who takes a base. So 99% sure the hacker has to be in your squad. If you have a squad in the area, and help grab it, but the hacker is a seperate squad, your screwed for CEPs, but you still grab BEPs at the same rate as everybody else in your squad.

Hm. Several months down the line I'd imagine you'll be seeing people playing the part of Commander simply to get the uniform alterations that go along with having a lot of CEP. And, of course, the chat channels and other Commander functions. Point is that I don't think it's such a good idea for BEP and CEP to be separate. You really should only be able to have a max BEP and CEP combined total of 20, otherwise given enough time, those who actually are Commanders will be as good as the best soldier, and those who are the soldiers will have the uniform and capabilities of a Commander -- even though they don't really command.

You have more than one character slot. If you want a soldier, make a soldier. Or get a few levels of battle experience for some combat ability, and then go all-out with the CEPs -- making you a good Commander, but with limited combat versitility (you could get by in battle if you just bought Reinforced Armor and the Assault cert, for instance).

When a base is turned to your side I'm sure everyone in that base's sphere of influence will get experience. If they're in the Commander role, they'll get CEP. If they're just fighting or whatever, they get BEP. That's how I'd do it, anyway. Not fair to everyone else if only the guy who happened to have the person who hacked the base in his Squad got CEP for it.
