LEGION Promotion System
How to Earn a Promotion
To earn a promotion you must hold both of the following requirements:
- Hold the minimum amount of experience required for your next rank (shown below).
- Be listed as “PROMOTION ELIGIBLE” in the Roster.
Ranks and EXP Requirements
The enlisted ranks make up the majoirty of LEGION’s forces. These typically consist of our newer or more casual players.
Promotions for Enlisted Ranks are earned purely by EXP gained through attending events.
TIRO (0 EXP)
Tirones are fresh recruits ready to experience their first events! Players of this rank will be subject to more basic developmental tasks in training and will make up the highly disposable “meatshield” during events. Though it is the lowest position, everyone starts at this rank, and the Legion is always glad to see new Tirones joining up!
MILITES (250 EXP)
Now with a week or two of experience to meet the 250 EXP requirement, players with the rank of Milites know the basic ropes of what to do in the Legion. While still not being highly ranked, they have much more respect than those at the plebeian Tiro rank.
TESSERARIUS (500 EXP)
Now with double the combat experience of the Milites, Tesserarii will start seeing themselves in a bigger role in the Legion. Tesseraii will be expected to be a prime example of what we expect our legion members to be, and may be asked to take minor instructional or demonstrator roles in training.
OPTIO (1000 EXP)
As the last enlisted rank, the Optio will have responsibilities similar to a modern day Corporal. Their primary goal is to assist the leadership of the Centurion ranks, as well as working on their own leadership skills.
Now past the enlisted ranks, Legion Centurions will start seeing their own leadership responsibilities. They will often be given minor leadership roles in training and will frequently find themselves assigned to backup command roles in events.
Like the enlisted ranks, promotions for NCO ranks will be based on EXP from attending events, with the exception for Aquilifers which are appointed by the Emperor.
Any Centurion level Officer is eligible for Senate Nomination for promotion to Tribune. This would waive the 10000 EXP requirement should their promotion request reach a 60% majority vote in the Senate.
CENTURION (2000 EXP)
Congratulations Centurion, you now have a basic command position in the Legion! New Centurions will be given subleadership roles in training, and will often be put in charge of teaching the basics to new recruits. Small command positions may be given in events as well, but this will be more common for the higher level Centurion ranks.
CENTURION PRIMI ORDINIS (3500 EXP)
Essentially the same as the Centurion just the next step up. Because of this, Centurion Primi Ordonii will have a higher chance of getting leadership roles in events.
CENTURION PRIMUS PILUS (6000 EXP)
Now at the highest Centurion role, command positions during events will be more common. Centurion Primus Pilus ranked players should also be focusing on impressing the higher ranking players, specifically those in the Senate. In order to be promoted to Tribune, they will need a large amount of EXP or a Senator to recommend them and call a vote.
AQUILIFER (APPOINTED BY EMPEROR)
The Aquilifer is the highest ranking NCO, but for most Legion members it will not be on their promotion path. Aquilifer is one of the most prestigious positions in the Legion, but members put in this rank will never be able to earn future promotion. This rank is for our elite members who do not want officer positions. Aquilifers will be rare, and only 1 will be appointed by the Emperor per 50 Legion members. Players striving for this rank will most likely have won at least one Triumph to be considered by the Emperor.
Officers in the Legion will be directly responsible for the majority of command during events and the organization and hosting of training. These members are true veterans and have definitely earned their rank through long and hard service.
All Officers leadership will be rated each event they take part of using the scale on the Roster page. This will come into effect for their promotions. Lower ranking officers will be evaluated by the higher ranking officers present. All officers in a command position will be given a rating for the event, not just the main event leader.
TRIBUNE (10000 EXP OR SENATE APPOINTMENT)
Arise, Tribune! You are now in the prestigious Officer Corps of the Legion! Tribunes will be directly responsible for the leadership of the Legion its glorious conquests. You will have top priority for leadership positions in battle, and will be given the admin privileges to host training and events on our game server. New Tribunes will also be given a lifetime Senate seat if they haven’t earned one already.
PRAEFECTUS (15000 EXP + LEADERSHIP RANK 3 OR HIGHER)
Proving they are capable of leading, Praefectii will be trusted with primary command positions during events, and may even be asked by the Emperor to lead entire events. They will also be able to evaluate the leadership ability of Tribunes after events and training. Praefectii will also be allowed into the Emperor’s personal Imperial Council and will directly influence decisions regarding policy proposals, scheduling, moderation actions, event command appointments, and foreign affairs.
LEGATUS (20000 EXP + LEADERSHIP RANK 4 OR HIGHER)
Legatus is the highest “earn-able” rank in the Legion without Consul election. Legatii have full privileges in Legion, and are responsible for evaluating the performance of all Legion members. Legatii will also have unique tasks given by the Emperor, but these vary on a case to case basis.
Consuls hold the highest rank in Legion, and have full authority just under the Emperor. They will be directly responsible for the leadership and governance of the Legion and it’s members, and will work directly on the Emperor to create new changes and updates. Consuls will be elected (more on that here) every three months. Consuls can be elected from ANY Legion member, but they must be nominated by a Senate member. Consuls may serve unlimited consecutive terms considering they continue to get nominated and elected.
The Emperor is the Imperial Leader of the Legion, and has full authority to make all decisions. However, the Emperor must still get policy and major promotion decisions approved by the Senate. The Emperor is primarily responsible for scheduling competitive events and maintaining a constant primary source of leadership.
