Newbie question about armors/ranks...


Im confused here, Ive been following this game pretty closely, and I know about the secondary colors getting brighter on your armor when you gain BEPs/CEPs. But is there some kinda of armor change??? Im not talking about light/med/heavy. Im asking if theres some kinda of armor modification when you gain so much BEPs/CEPs...

Because I see a picture of a weird looking Vanu soldier, kinda modified from the original.

Sorry for the n00b question, but Im in the dark on this one...

Thanks,
Valid

from the way i understand it there are three types of armor

light armor
medium armor
and MAX

the armor difference you're probably seeing is the difference between light and medium...

I think that when someone gains enough CEPs, they get a more advanced looking armor or something. I'm not exactly sure though.

The skins only change as you acquire Battle or Command ranks. The skin colors change as you increase in rank (at various specific levels) while the Commanders receive extra polygonal additions as they gain rank.

Mold - Yeah. I do believe I remember hearing that Outfits will be able to display pre-made logos on their gear/vehicles. Word of choice being pre-made.

Alrighty that almost explains it, but whats with the "extra polygonal additions"?

Probably nothing fancy for the extra polygons. Maybe a little rank thing, like a medal or something similar to it, stuck to your breastplate.

Also, just thought I'd throw this out here, but the Vanu armor turns teal as they gain BEPs. At least, I'm 99% sure it does. Teal seems to be their secondary colour judging by their emblem and their new armor pics.
