This is the official guide for getting promoted in RAT, as well as guidelines to promoting if you are an admiral.

[----------Rank Roles------------]

{Conscript} - Starting off. Not actually considered a real troop, moreso a cadet in training. This is the proving ground for much to come.

{Soldier} - New RAT troop. Basic tasks/duties.

{Scout} - An RAT troop whom has proved themself. A scout is usually expected to start learning more about the outside clan world as well as researching enemy bases to find vantage points.

{Guard} - A guard's main job is self-explanatory. At this rank, I reccomend you guard our bases and meet friends. You will need them before you will ever advance.

{Coordinator} - A coordinator is the rank you are expected to work on your leadership. You have NO power over others, so your goal is to get everyone to work together without having to use force - this is great training.

{Supervisor} - This is usually the main stopping point for ranks. You are to observe and report to higher ranks, as well as reccomending people for promotion if you think they did something worthy.

{Marshal} - Any supervisor whom proves themself worthy to an Admiral might be selected as their Marshal. A Marshal is an Admiral in training (although you most likely will not receive it purely based off supervisor) as well as an extremely important Supervisor (with previously mentioned tasks). I sometimes hire what I call "wild card marshals", in which they have no Admiral. In that case, seek out any admiral you please. Only two marshals per admiral. Asking will have you shot down from the rank forever. Don't do it.

{Admiral} - Anyone who proves to me personally they can take on this task will receive the highest honor in RAT. Do not ask. I have a hidden process for hiring this rank I will not tell.

{Grand Admiral} - In charge of the entire group. You will most likely never see this rank.

[----------Advancing Beyond Conscript------------]

Advancing beyond a conscript is fairly simple. If you can manage for yourself, consider Conscript to Soldier an almost free rank. The fact you are reading this guide is pretty good for yourself, as most people who never both to read it will not be ranked up.

To ever be ranked past a Conscript, you are to complete the RAT training course. If it is not up due to me not having BC at the time or having it down, this rule is void until it is back up. Earning this badge is NOT enough for a rank up, it only opens the door for you.

[----------Instant Opportunities For Ranking Up------------]

1.) Be an allied leader (See our alliance guide for more info)
2.) Be hired in as an admiral. (Do not ask)
3.) Take part in any promotion-training activity.
4.) Go to a promotion meeting.

[----------Long Term Opportunities For Ranking Up------------]

1.) Be ACTIVE in the group.
2.) Befriend an Admiral or Marshal, or become known in the group.
3.) Build things for us that are worthy of being used. However, effort will sometimes still earn you ranks even if we didn't use it.
4.) Actively take part in RAT meetings.
5.) Following our rules.
6.) Organizing members and being informative and helpful.
7.) Recruiting members! Have your recruited members PM an admiral.
8.) Foruming and giving us good PR!
9.) Many more, see our list of things you CANNOT be promoted for however.

[----------Things You CANNOT Be Ranked For------------]

1.) Being in the group for a long time
2.) Taking part in UNAUTHORIZED raids (IE: Raids with no leader present) Exceptions can be made in certain cases, like if the raid turned out to be a high-profile win and you have proof.
4.) Foruming, IF the foruming is off topic and not giving us a good reputation.
5.) Good grammar. Seriously, people think their grammar earns them ranks.
6.) Being a HR in another group.
7.) You will most likely not rank up if you PM me as I get much more inbox spam then admirals. I also do not make promotions a priority. Feel free to send them anyhow, but don't expect any luck.

[----------Things You Will Get Demoted For------------]

1.) Harassing other members
2.) Teamkilling
3.) Exploiting
4.) Constant harassment of enemies using flame and NOT logic
5.) Raiding clans not considered enemies by RAT under their name
6.) Being mean to people for no reason on the forums. Be mature.
7.) Breaking any fort rules.
8.) Not using common sense.

[----------Things NOT To Promote For------------]

(This section is for ADMIRALS ONLY)

1.) Claiming a demotion for no reason
2.) Saying they got demoted in an "admin attack"
3.) Claiming they weren't able to get on, so they got demoted for inactivity.
4.) Saying they are an alt WITHOUT PROOF.
5.) If their promotion request is a complete unreadable mess, don't bother trying to decipher it.
6.) Use your brain here. Just watch who you promote.

[----------Honors Division------------]

Being in the honors division is a great.. well, honor. It gives you special weapons in most forts (And only slightly better ones in Fort Scorpio, Fort Borealis, and Fort Equinox)

This is the division for loyal members who display maturity and helpfulness. Will most likely gain an Aurum boost in Fort Borealis.

[----------Immortals Division------------]

Are you an awesome fighter? This is the division for you. Read up on specifics centered to this division for a more in-depth explanation behind the workings and mechanics of this group.

Immortals will awesome get weapons at most RAT places, and get a discount on weaponry within Fort Borealis.

[----------Sparrow Corp------------]

The elusive sparrow corp are the secret agents and personal bodyguards of the Grand Admiral. Will spawn with extremely large amounts of Aurum at Fort Borealis, and most likely gain powerful weapons. However, they will be VERY rare, so do not worry about balance and the like.

[----------Ending Notes------------]

If you are wondering about "Aurum" and "Fort Borealis", just relax. Not much info will be released yet, but this does pertain to the WIP project "Sparrow Harbor".

I remember the time I got a promo request from some guy claiming to be a Supervisor that was "demoted for inactivity."

Seriously, people are getting desperate these days.
