Step 7: As you update various aspects of your battle report, you’ll receive additional XP to improve your rank once the report has been published.
Improving your report helps you and your faction. A more fleshed out, interesting report gives you extra XP as explained but also gives you a better chance of getting better star ratings and more commendations from your fellow commanders. Higher ratings and more commendations give you more achievements leading to more XP and a higher rank.
The more interesting, well rated reports your faction has the better chance it has in shaping the final outcome of the battle.

Step 8: When your report is created it is private and won’t be visible to anyone else until you publish it. To publish, when editing change the Live Status to Public and submit.
PLEASE NOTE Once a battle report has been made public it cannot be set back to private, so make sure you have it as complete as wish it to be. A half complete published report may give you AND your faction lower rating and less commendations.

Step 9: If your opponent has an account and created a report covering the same battle you can link them to give both commander’s extra XP (once both battles have been made public). In the checklist you will see a code:
Create-Battle-Step-9A
To link get the code from your opponent’s battle report or vice-versa. In the edit screen the code goes into the first field Opponent Battle Code. For a link to be successful the information in each report must match E.g. Episodes must be the same, If they said they won your report must say you lost etc.
PLEASE NOTE Its is best practise to ensure that the details of each report are correct before linking. Once a link has been made certain changes to the reports cannot be made by commander’s.
Create-Battle-Step-9B
Once a link is successful your report will let others know that this is the case and provides a icon to click to view the other one. Incase you’re wondering linked battles is only counted once per battle in the statistics and data of the campaign and not per report.
