    ERC is your estimated faction rank.. eg rank 1.. like I said the more you PvP it will update.. or something like that, not very sure on how the honor rankings work.

    That doesn't match the acronym or the numbers. Higher ERC = faster ranking on that page.

    Here's a page that supposedly explains how the formulas work. Seems pretty thorough, but no real way of knowing how accurate it is.

    J, Cal, and I were talking about this in game last night.

    The guy who put that page up on wowwiki posts on the WoW PvP forums a lot. He says the quick way to estimate what you'll have to do to attain a certain rank is to look at the standing of the lowest player on the server to have that rank.

    So, say you want Rank 11 (Commander) for the PvP mount. Hyjal Alliance:

    http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/pvp/index.html?r=Hyjal&faction=a#top

    The lowest ranked Commander is at #27. So you'll probably have to consistently do about 27th or better on the server each week to make Rank 11.

    Edit: The guy wrote a cool mod to help you track it. http://mosa.unity.ncsu.edu/WoW/RankScore/

    Look at the projected gains within rank 12... they becomes very small very fast. Those projections are based on me pvping all day every day, achieving standing ~10 every week.

    Ugh, 10 weeks at R12.

    If you crank the slider up to 13k per week, you'll be GM in a mere 6 weeks. :D All you have to do is make #1 every week and you're home. Not so hard is it?
