There are multiple layers of progression for the player to evolve in.
Here's the relation between the different layers of the progression system:
- Score earned by playing is transformed into Credits and Mastery points
- Use Mastery Points to unlock the same parts' higher Marks
- Unlock your parts' Mark to increase your Pilot Rank
- Increase your Pilot Rank to unlock new parts
- The quality of a Gunship's parts determines the Gunship Class
- Use Credits to buy the different parts unlocked in this process

For using Support abilities not affected by other means: Score varies

Levelling Pilot Ranks
In order to increase your Pilot Rank, the player has to unlock higher marks of parts with Mastery Points.
Every new part's mark is worth its level in XP toward a higher Pilot Rank (2, 3 or 4).
Each new rank unlocks a new tier in the progression tree until Ace is attained (Star doesn't unlock a new tier).
|1000 and up||Star|
Every gunship part has multiple versions of incrementally better performance. These new iterations are more extreme in the sense that the gap between their strengths and weaknesses grow with every new mark. There are always 4 marks to every part. In order to unlock the second, third and fourth mark of a piece of equipment, it must be used in-game. When the player completes a match, his score is redistributed as mastery points. These mastery points are divided evenly between all the parts of both gunships he brought to the fight (so, normally divided in 24). Parts already at Mark 4 are disregarded and allow other parts to level up faster.
The number of mastery points necessary to unlock the next mark increases for every level and differs from a rank to another. The highest in rank, the less Mastery Points it takes to get the highest marks.
To unlock a part, you simply have to reach the same pilot rank than the part's rank is.
If the part is branched with other parts, you also have to unlock the Mark 2 on every pre-requisite parts.
A part's marks are unlock simply by playing that part. The rate at which it unlocks its marks depends on multiple factors:
Here's the amount of Mastery points needed to unlock the marks from each part according to their ranks:
|Part Rank||Mastery to Mark 2||Mastery to Mark 3||Mastery to Mark 4|
