Game Server Update 19 Jul 2013

Written by  on July 19, 2013 

Some of the classes have been and continue to be adjusted slightly. No drastic changes though. See the [old link removed] thread in the mtrek.com forums for more info.

While they have little or no effect on actual gameplay, the “ranks”, seen on the odometer page [esc shift-o] and the in-game announcements, have been updated. Rank in mtrek has always been there for amusement primarily, and secondarily, as a recognition of sorts, for achieving high scores.

So here is a breakdown of the rank assignment system:
