This file contains the combat rating details for all the various versions of Elite, and is in response to my recent discovery that ArcElite's ranks are significantly harder than some versions of Elite. The details contained in here are probably correct, and the sources are given in the notes section at the bottom.
|Rating||Original (*1)||FE2 & FFE (*2)||ArcElite (*3)|
|Below Average (*4)||N/A||16||N/A|
|Very Deadly (*5)||N/A||N/A||8,000|
As you can see above, there is a considerable difference between the ratings systems. An Arc Elite pilot who has reached Deadly is actually as good as an FE2 pilot who is rated Elite. Were the ArcElite commander be magically ported to FE2, his rating would shoot up due to the extra kills. On the other hand, a commander who had become Elite on FE2 would be horrified to see his rating slump to Deadly were he port his commander to Arc Elite.
