# 1 Admiral Ability Rank 1
02-13-2010, 08:00 PM
What is it?

So I spent like 57,000+ skillpoints and got the accolade 'Admiral Ability Rank 1' but when I opened up my abilities window (both on the ground and in space), I found nothing new.

Anyone who clarify this for me?

Pay close attention to preexisting skills. It's possible you just got a new rank. For some (like attack patterns) the game thinks it's a brand new skill (since attack pattern ranks are modified by different escort ranks, ie. Alpha II is modified by heavy escort, whereas Alpha III is not).

Not true. There are 13 specific levels at which you are to gain a new skill.
Levels 3, 5 and 8 of while in each rank. That is 3 new abilities per rank.

Again, these are new abilities, not new ranks of current abilities.

I send a ticket about the missing admiral abilities and they said that they were all their, but it makes no sense, there is only 8 space abilities and there should be 9 and there should be 5 groud abilities but there is only 4.

Rear Admiral 3 ability is passive and does not show up in the powers list. See this developer post:

Quote:
Admiral 3 grants the Fleet Support ability. You can't see the ability because it's passive. If you're below 50% hull, there's a chance that a ship will appear to aid you in battle.
The percent chance is apparently pretty low -- 5% chance of appearance.
