Threat Level

Threat Level is the game's way of determining your skill level compared to other players. The formula for assessing threat level takes into account wins, losses, and participation in missions and whether the player is on the team with a threat advantage or disadvantage compared to the other team. Since Patch 1.6.1 threat level is calculated for all characters on the account to prevent gold threat players from creating low-threat characters.

Threat groups

Threat level is split into 4 color coded categories depending on your threat. Green is the most basic, followed by bronze for novices, silver for standard quality players and gold for the highest rated players. The symbol itself is based on your rating (which can only go up to 235). Your rank based symbol is colored to represent your threat level and you will be teamed with and against played with a similar rating of threat.

Gold players count for more on a team than lower ratings do, so two silvers might find themselves teamed up against a gold. Or 3 silvers may find themselves against 4-5 bronzes. If a team is disadvantaged for threat then their leader will have the option to call for backup.

District rewards

If a player manually joins a district that does not match his current threat level, he will be punished in rewards depending on the difference between his threat level and the district threat level. The percentages are 25%, 50% and 90% reducements. This applies only to districts that are chosen via a manual selection of the instance, and it also applies for players who have a higher threat than the selected instance has. If your threat level changes while in an instance, you will also get reduced rewards.

Joining as a group or being put into a non-matching district by the system by clicking the district picture on the main selection screen will not reduce the rewards even if the resulting instance has a different threat level than the character.
