What Is UnitRank?

UnitRank is our own method of, well, ranking units based on their offensive capabilties - when weighed against their points cost.

A cheaper, more points efficient unit will have a higher UnitRank within our system, which looks at not only unit characteristics, but also it's special rules and how many points it costs to field that particular unit.

Why Build UnitRank?

The answer is, well, simply because we could. We had all the data we needed to do it already to hand and it was an interesting side project and one which we can see evolve, grow and evolve as our understanding of the game evolves.
