License Grade[]

Main articles: License, Category:Blocks by grade

Blocks are also separated by License Grades, and player must complete enough missions or destroy enough competitors-techs of relevant types to upgrade their License Grade and get access to all blocks made by a specific corporation.

License Grade defines only what blocks can appear in the Trading Station's shop or on the enemy techs. All blocks can be crafted after gaining the relevant fabricators, they will be just initially marked as "unknown".


Common Uncommon Rare Block's rarity determines the chance it will be found inside The Reward Crate or sold by Trading Station.
