      Gratz, that’s quite an effort. Did you just do it for one time giggles? I think keeping up rank 3 suits me.

      So you still have to keep the rating for 2 weeks to get the payout?
      Well done – it was a struggle keeping at rank 4!

        ouch so he has to grind out 5000 merits next week ..

        this i s why after rank 3 for a month i gave up and went to smuggling, since i can make in 2 hours what you earn per week at rank 5.

        510Million and acounting in 2 weeks.. heading for Elite Trader 10% Tycoon at the moment.

        might take brief respite at 660million

      For 2 weeks? I thought I’d get a payout at the end of the next cycle.

      From memory, first week at level 4 (Patreus), was a ‘great, you made it, keep it up and we’ll pay you next week’.

      So there was a week lag with the Cr

      Edit: (not quite the 2 weeks I said above, but you know, maths, days, general facts aren’t my strong points) 🙂

      Remember that the merits decay, so you’re in for some grind (and math) to make sure you bring in enough merits to keep the rank you have.

      I dropped out of PP grind, and now just shoot things (not a real change, mind you).

      Anyone with more modern input?  I’m sober, so my memory is a little off. 😉

      Yeah, I think the sweet spot is (if you’ve got rank 5 all in one week), about 5350 merits/week to maintain rank 5, accounting for decay.
      And because the decay of your merits isn’t visible (or at least, there’s no ingame way of seeing your next week merit count), so you have to over supply merits to guarantee you stay at that level…
      That would be about 180 interdictions a week to maintain (still 30 merits/kill?), or quite a few garrison supplies (roughly 50 million Cr worth of supplies, if you fast track).
      Rank 4 is much easier to maintain – once you’re there anyway 🙂

      I’m pretty sure its 30 in from inderdicting targets, and 10 in crimesweeps, but I may be mistaken.
