Each character has a rank calculated from his experience on the battlefield. The XP is divided into 2 level-categories and then added to get the Rank. The 2 categories focus on 2 different ways of playing; Combat XP Level (gained from killing and not getting killed) and Tactical XP Level (Gained from completing objectives, leading squads and not having men under your command killed).
|XP Level||Combat XP||Tactical XP|
Ranks are given to characters in an assault team according to experience level.
The Rank system is slightly different for the services (Panzer and Air Force Air Force units follow different ranking levels, Germany and US have different ranks aswell).
The system is designed to let other players know your experience level.
Strategic ranks are given to the command officer. It is based on the commands level within the command structure.
|Rank Level||ARMY||AIR FORCE||INFANTRY||PANZER||LUFTWAFFE|
- There was no special insignia to indicate a senior corporal in the US army during WW2 so the one used (2 chevorns and a star) is entirely fictional.
- The Hauptfeldwebel (colloquially, "Der Speiss"), was either a Stabsfeldwebel or Oberfeldwebel. He was identified by two stripes of silver Tresse around each forearm 100 mm (3 15/16 inches) above the bottom of the sleeve. We have shown these two stripes on the shoulderpatch of a Stabsfeldwebel.
