'''Dominance Points'''

These Points determine each Combine's position in the Combine Rankings!
 +
 +
Dominance Points are calculated as follows:
 +
 +
1. By converting the territory of a Combine's conquered Mining Complexes into Dominance Points. A 100:1 ratio is used for conversion, so 1 sq. km of territory equals 100 Dominance Points;
 +
 +
2. By taking into account a Combine’s Achievements. Up until now, a percentage bonus was applied to a Combine’s territory based on its Achievements. Combines will still benefit from this bonus, but now it will be applied to their Dominance Points instead;
 +
 +
3. Each Achievement will now have its own additional reward, in terms of Dominance Points, that will be added to a Combine’s total number of Dominance Points.
 +
Power Points
 +
 +
Power Points are a unique value assigned to each Unit in the game, based on and relative to its respective Offensive or Defensive value. Power Points are used to make progress towards certain Achievements, and also play a significant role in the base calculation for experience points earned during battles.

New Class Rankings!

All Commanders will be sorted into Classes based on their Experience Levels: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, or Expert.
