Your rating indicates your progress through in-game contacts. 195 is the maximum available rating and is awarded for completing every contact and boss within APB.

Rating doesn't mean anything, it goes up with each contact level you have gained. You can make it go up "fast" by doing the early contacts equally instead of maxing out a single branch (since higher tier contacts level up slower).

Other than that, get premium (+30% boost in standing rewards) and kill a lot of dudes while winning a mission while N5/P5. :)

There is no level actually. No direct progression at least. You must be refering to threat level. And tl is something quite strange now. The more you play the more medium it tends to get, so it's happening a lot that half decent new players are getting the same tl that vets that are not that awesome (like me).

Rating is a mere count of how long you played, it goes up whenever you get a level with a contact. Do an inspect (>) at the guy and see how many hours he has played.

we are unstoppable, another world is possible

You must be refering to threat level.


:P Ofc hes not.
OP: Threat Level is the little icon (bullets/guns/skulls for crim, chevrons/stars for enfs) in Bronze/Silver/Gold (10levels icons per colour) that dictates your Matchmaking abilitiy. The more you win, the more dangerous you are, the higher your TL.

Your Rating, the little "R27" or whatnot, is how many contact levels they have. Once you finish the tutorial district (new chars to the action districts) all start at R09. Thats lvl 5 with the Tutorial Contact + lvl 1 with each of the 4 starting contacts 5+1+1+1+1 = 9 :)
When you level a contact from 2->3, your Rating goes up 1. When you max a contact at level 10, you gain 2 Rating (from hitting 10 with that one and unlocking the next contact at lvl 1). So someone with R93+ MAY have a Rocket Launcher (lvl 6 with the a faction boss), if they didnt remotely touch the other faction. (If I focusses solely on Prentiss Tigers, I'd have a Rocket Launcher at R93. But since I levelled a few Pratorian contacts, I'm at R120ish and still no Rockets :P ).
Rating simply gives an indication of how much that person has played (like they played time, but more accurate)

Well, to get rating fast, you need to be good. That person with 10x your rank might be really bad or farmed low Threat Level. Either way, do really well, get a lot of contact standing per mission, or just play for a really really long time and you will get there eventually.

Rating does mean something, getting higher lvl vehicles, weapons, etc

Press 'J' and then click the 'Progression' tab. Now you can see your current standing with all your contacts. 

 

Every level you go up for a contact means your rating goes up one level.

 

Pledge to a contact to level that contact exclusively. 

 

Start with the low-tier contacts... that is those that require the least amount of XP to go to the next level. Winston LeBoyce and Double-B are the starter contacts for Enforcers and Criminals respectively. You should be finished with them already but if you are not, do them first. Do know they only have 5 levels while everyone else has 10. 

 

A complete description of all contacts and their tiers can be found here: http://apbdb.com/contacts/

Rating, or standing, is the level you increase from your contacts. Leveling up requires maxing out a contact. You'll notice when there's a notification pop up that says so right when you've finished with a contact. You have to switch between action districts to progress, so press J and check the progress tab to see which contact you have to max next and go to the district that has it.

 

The only way to level them up faster is by missions in premium account. Even then, you'll have to spend days before you've maxed out every contact and reached max rank level.

 

Higher rank means better gear and guns, but Armas has gear and weapons that you can get without having to wait for the required level, and almost every mod is available in the marketplace, while most 195+ restricted mods can be bought from Joker Store in Social district and worn without having to reach that rank, though they expire after a time. A week, if I remember correctly.

 

So overall, if you're looking to speeding things up buying things from Armas and marketplace (or joker store if any of those mods tickle your fancy) are your options, and go with what you got while maintaining premium until you can get to rank 195 so you can buy the restricted mods you want from marketplace. That's as fast as you can go.

The only way is to complete missions. Obviously you earn more standing if you win and you get tons more if you drop a few bucks for premium membership. Options beyond that are extremely limited or non-existent.

Basically, exactly what BrianRolling said.

Here are contact tiers http://apbdb.com/contacts/

 

Tier 0 and Tier 1 are easiest and fastest. Because they don't need as much standing (xp) as Tier 2 and higher.

 

Also Redeem some of the free premium codes, it will boost your standing (xp) and money ($) 

http://forums.gamers...-redeem-codes/ 

 

In the game hit 'Esc -> Armas marketplace -> Redeem codes' button

 

So, you're R26, don't forget to switch districts. 'Esc -> District select'  or 'Esc -> District select -> Advanced button'. Choose betweem Financial and Waterfront.

DO NOT join 'OPEN CONFLICT' districts. Those are not for you.

Just rank up the contacts that require less standing

 

For me i don't really care about the rating cause i unlocked my opgl and osmaw at rank 83(I had to rank up to 85 to use them) so instead of that i went to max out the easiest ones i maxed out the hardest ones , now i am rank 111 and i am close to unlock justin teng
