A 1000-Man Commander is a military commander who can commands 1000 men and usually is the leader of a 1000-Man Unit. Like with other ranks a commander can gain this position getting achievements, like slay generals/important commanders, fulfilling tasks and proving to be worthy. From this rank the commanders are considered to be important pieces to order to organize an army.
Is the standard 1000-man unit and is assigned to at least a 2000-man unit.
Is a special unit and can only be given orders by a general.
They are not assigned to any unit unless are in a certain major battlefields and when assigned they take orders from superior officers.
When not assigned they can do whatever they please, as long they achieve their tasks.
Right after getting promoted to 1000-man commanders, Ou Hon mentioned to Shin and Mou Ten to start taking their roles more seriously because a 1000-man unit "is an entity that is already at a scale where its action can affect the battlefield as a whole."
A 1000 man unit is considered a small army. Unlike previous ranks, the size of this unit can affect morale of other units and influence the battle.
According to Mou Ten, a 1000-man unit can not rely only on momentum to win the battle.
The commander has the right to promote 3 people to the rank of lieutenant, as well as the right to promote soldiers to 100-man commanders. The unit is also allowed to bring in a strategist.
When achieving this rank, the commander gains the right to enter war meetings, however they still aren't allowed to speak.
Achieving this rankEdit
A commander can gain this rank through achieving many merits over various battlefield. When a general deems an individual worthy a promotion this rank is given. The loss of a 1000-man commander can create the opportunity for a 300 man commander to get a temporary field promotion, and if that commander proves themselves worthy the rank can become permanent.
According to Shin, getting promoted from 1000-man Commander on onward is increasingly difficult.
