I got rank 8 for ages now, when will i get rank 9? Whats the Trigger? Aerozol: As soon as any of the above criteria is met, you will go up a rank. The triggers don’t give you any specific rank for each trigger, they just add up, and the more you meet the higher your rank gets.

Just go to the tools & calc’s link https://tcbasic.com/tools.html And select the top link from that page. Then go to crimes link on ya TC. Scrol down & click on ya crime record. Now Enter the figures into the link page. U will then know how far off all the triggers U R 🙂

does that then mean, that if i sell my bodyguard to the shop for 750k ill get the 500k networth award? =/ Aerozol: If you haven’t got it yet, yup Check if its worth it though, you always lose a bit of money by selling to the shops

its a huge jump from 50 mill up to one bill,are u sure thats right….seems weird
written by Calliope, April 17, 2007
I went up to rank 11, but it doesn’t appear that I hit any of the known triggers… and I didn’t get any other awards at the time of the rank award…
written by connor, April 25, 2007
i believe there is another networth trigger as knights is a level 32 with 18k crimes and is rank 18
written by al, May 05, 2007
I’m pretty sure TC has taken 2,000 networh and 50,000 network out of the game because I have yet to recieve either of those merits and have bought and sold guns to the store worth over 50,000.

Today get rank #15 Professional Award without reach any of this triggers :S only reach 8k total crimes done. .
written by aerozol, May 30, 2007
@ Colossal, maybe you reached a networth trigger? But there are a few triggers that we don’t have on the site… yet.
written by W_Shadow, June 03, 2007
are you sure that Sneak Thief award is not a rank trigger? Cause i ranked up immediately after doing 1000 theft crimes. I recieved the 2 merits at the same time.
written by Colossal_, June 17, 2007
rank trigger isnt 200m NW is 220m NW 😉

I got the Executive Award 10mil networth 3 days ago (7-20) and I have not gotten a rank upgrade. I am not sure this award is a rank trigger. Does anyone else know?

i just got rank 4, do u know the trigger for rank 5?
written by Shikamaru, August 02, 2007
Does rank actually help you in the game? or is it just a symbol of acheivement? TCB: You get merits for ranking up
written by xboxplayer, August 06, 2007
there’s a trigger at level 5.
written by lilcaptmorgan11, August 08, 2007
can anyone verify the 2k,50k and 500k networth award? cuzz I should have close to 800k networth and got nothing.. any ideas
written by dawgs63, August 09, 2007
I don’t see it listed, but I think you may get a rank increase with certain working stats. As soon as I hit 1000 intelligence, I went up in rank and got a merit. I’ll let you know if I get one on the 1000 for the other two working stats.
written by pr3mium, August 26, 2007
also i didn;t get the 3mil nw rank trigger when i bought got the house,a nd i’ve had it for 3 or 4 days. TCb: Buying houses doesn’t add to networth
written by pr3mium, August 29, 2007
i have has over 1 mil and i still didn;t get the 2,000 networth, 50,000 networth or 500,000 networth achievments. are they all gone? someone said they think 2,000 and 50,000 are out, but i think 500,000 is out also. i never got it.
written by jdogg0226, August 30, 2007
u dont get an award for the 2,000 50,000 and 500,000 networth it just makes ur rank go up
written by super, September 01, 2007
I’m level 19 now.My crime is not over 5000 yet.But I’m rank 9 Above Average now.It’s mean My net worth reach to 10,000,000.But I havn’t got The Millionaire award and The Executive award yet.Why?
written by pr3mium, September 03, 2007
no, i figured out it’s all by money earned by crimes and items sold at the item shop. that’s it, not all money you have.
written by bowlindude8, September 09, 2007
i’ve done absolutely nothin today and got a rank up. no crimes, sellin or levelling up, any idea why? TCB: Sometimes ranks take a while to happen, because of lag in TC.
written by BOOO, September 11, 2007
Whats the cheapest way to get from 50-200m networth?? TCB: Buying and selling RPG’s to the system is believed to be the easiest/ fastest way: If you have the cash.
written by 11hammy, September 15, 2007
i only match 11 rank triggers and yet im rank 12 :S lol TCB: You start at rank 1.
written by Mike_Myers, September 27, 2007
Hello iv got merits for each time i go up a rank but not for my lvl as i never got 1 for becoming lvl 2 and im worth just over 7mil and yet iv no merit for being over that either so y have i not got merits for all these things? TCB: You got an award for the rank you gained at level 2: So you’ve got the award. And CLICK the ‘networth’ link to see what counts towards your networth.
written by mqwert, September 30, 2007
Someone from TCB replied that the easiest/fastest way to networth up is to sell RPG’s to the system. RPG’s are like 200 mill, and the sell value is zero. People usually buy/sell flamethrowers.
written by Kroleex, October 16, 2007
Hi staff. I just wanted to say to you guys, that some of the above criteria is 100% correct: Networth 10,000,000 Level 26 Just for helping ya 🙂

I’ve done 1220 crimes, and I’m still waiting for my award for 1000 crimes. Anyone know if this award is gone?
written by takeshi, November 04, 2007
you get this award e.g. for 1000 theft crimes not for 1000 crimes of all types
written by non of ur bees wax, November 06, 2007
im on level 5 and rank 5 and im 191 days old. when will i go up a level TCB: Rank has nothing to do with level. It depends on the exp you get from stuff like training, crimes and attacking people.
written by The_DarkSlayer, November 10, 2007
I’ve sold many items exceeding $2000 and I should have got 2000 networth but my rank remains the same!
written by H0110w, November 16, 2007
Your 1st line says, “When you go up a rank you get a Merit. Currently there are 26 ranks.” I believe you meant 21 ranks TCB: Chedburn stated in an update a while back that there were 26 ranks. Obviously not all of them have been reached yet.
written by livevil, November 21, 2007
There are more trigger like a trigger for battle stats.
written by velns, December 22, 2007
you must be right ! last 2 awards, i don’t know why i got rank :/ 22/12/07 You have been awarded the Veteran award! 09/12/07You have been awarded the Level Twenty Five award!
written by ittybitty, January 07, 2008
for TCB, are you positive the networth 2,000 trigger is still in effect? i’m at level 8 and sold everything i’ve earned in crimes through the stores AND even gone to auctions and bought things to resell at the stores, so i definitely know i’ve hit the 2,000 benchmark.
written by kev_in, January 20, 2008
ive been a rank#4 for ages…. cn i knw wats d trigger 2 go up 2 rank#5..? thnx in advance… TCB: That’s what this page is for… the Triggers are listed above! Every time you reach one you will rank up.
written by kev_in, January 20, 2008
*TCB: Rank has nothing to do with level. It depends on the exp you get from stuff like training, crimes and attacking people. * so if rank depends on the exp you get from stuff like training, crimes and attacking people. then wat about lvl…?? TCB: No, he asked about leveling. Leveling depends on the exp from that stuff. Ranks don’t depend on exp at all, just the above triggers.
written by Yyz, January 24, 2008
I reached 5000 crimes and passed level 31 over a month ago and no rank increase. passed level level 32 2 weeks ago and still no rank trigger.
written by Pancake, January 31, 2008
i got rank 11 today and i am certain i dont have enough networth for 50mil so i checked on torncitycomplete and they say u rank up for 2k crimes
written by hapalapa, January 31, 2008
Does it mean that it makes more sense to do low level crimes.. coz i can do more of them with the same Nerve TCB: You also get awards for doing certain crimes. You get no awards for Search for Cash for instance, although you may advance ranks. Low level crimes also give you less crime exp, and money.
written by kanwh, January 31, 2008
I think there’s a rank trigger at 3,500 crimes

written by dani, March 21, 2008
for the staff of this site pliz make it in bold and big huge letters: “those are all rank triggers- they only make your rank go up!” becouse im pretty sure half the people here think that when they hit the 50K networth they will get an award saying “you got the 50K networth award”
written by crimelad, March 31, 2008
Im not sure why this site exists if it continues to give false and half-correct information. Try to verify some of your information prior to posting instead of adding and deleting rumors at whim. TCB: We haven’t changed anything on this page for months, apart from layout. Maybe you should be more specific.
written by S3NTYN3L, March 31, 2008
Rank #2 is triggered by buying property. I just got a trailer from a faction buddy and rank #2 upon moving into it… TCB: There are no specific actions assigned to specific ranks.
written by Portos, April 02, 2008
i am level 7 and i only have 646 crimes, and i have been sitting there for about a week, so i don’t think it takes an amount of time i believe it all depends on your networth.

you guys should really upgrade this TCB TCB: I fucking wish people would stop saying this. With what? Be specific.

written by idiothead-no1HasThatName:L, May 04, 2008
There are more rank triggers, i know someone who got a rank from nothing of the above, i don’t know waht yet (she is rank 8), I on the other hand got 2 awards today, both from yesterday, i got rank 11 and 2500 thefts, i also made 4000 total crimes, so it is either one of those (i think it is more likely to be 2500 thefts) thanks for my information 😛
written by Devontog, May 04, 2008
How is networth Calculated. Is it from stuff you sell back to the shops? Or does it include money earned from crimes as well? TCB: Click on the ‘Networth’ link to see a full description.

serus noobs shut up if you dont get the merit strait away normally you dont get a merit rank or what not untill the daily tc reset lol stupid noobs and if you dont get it after the resent click event , then home , then Criminal offences!!! then after that you should get you awarsds and shit and you should have your happy merits!!!!

written by Krol, June 22, 2008
I believe that another rank trigger should be level 70, as The_Legend (king ace) got rank 21 after leveling up to 70.

level 31 as rank trigger is 100% work!

so is 2000 networth confirmed or not?
written by Thomas-, July 16, 2008
Hey, The_Legend has just reached rank #22 (Champion)today so u should put that up on the list of ranks,and by the way my networth should be really high and i still haven’t got ANY awards and i am 210 days old.Do you get awards or are they only rank triggers?
written by Fightstar00, July 17, 2008
The_Legend Reached Rank 22.. #Champion His Trigger was level 71… As you have 22 Triggers above, he hasn’t hit level 100 so there much be another.. I think it is level 71.. we’ll find out when someone else hits it
written by Thomas-, July 18, 2008
Yeah,could be a trigger but will be long time before anyone else reaches lv71.then again,he could have ranked up for doing a certain amount of crimes.i know there are a few people who have done more crimes than him but they are all high ranks so could be a crime trigger or level trigger.

written by Rev_Fear, August 12, 2008
This doest seem right to me! So far in the game i have stolen tonnes of stuff, and made millions from it! Yet ive never had a networth award!!! You sure it’s not just related to you owning a company or something?? TCB: Networth awards have been around for much, much longer than companies.

written by darkbladedoney, August 21, 2008
okay tcb, i have question for you….i have found a player on tc, that is 12 days old, who is a astonishing rank 9! and level 5, how the hell has he hit that rank being 12 days old? TCB: Presumably he has gotten 6 networth awards, probably by selling items to the city ( level 2, 100 crimes, he starts at rank 1). He may be a multi, or has other ways to afford spending so much money.
written by darkbladedoney, August 22, 2008
okay okay tcb, its one day later from which i asked the question just above, and he is now 2 day older and one rank higher, this is realllyyyyy gettin on my nerves!!! he says he has only got to the ceo rank…… WTF IS GOING ON!

InFebruary, I reached level 31 with 5,000 crimes and was ranked #15, professional. In that time I have also received a dozen merits for various things in including Magnate, Entrepreneur, Gone in 120, 60, 45, 30, 15 seconds, Clandestine, Prowler, Impostor, Platinum, Double Silver, Double Ruby, Double Sapphire and the Level 35 awards. Last week I reached level 38 and have over 8400 crimes and I am still at rank #15. Any suggestions to get that damn rank up?
written by Reggie, September 03, 2008
@Yyz, why not sell items back to the city or do 2 nerve crimes? e.g. Search under the bridge for 10k offences, and Buy, and sell Full body armors/Jackhammers/Beer/Flamethrowers/Cars back to the system.
written by gray_yyz, September 11, 2008
Sorry, I forgot to mention that. I sell all my cars at the dock to the system. actually, I sell everything I get through crimes back to the system. when my account comes back open I will be hunting down jackhammers to do that to as well.

I don’t think this is true…my husband is level 22 and has the CEO award…and he’s only done about 2300 crimes.
