What do you do with them?

I don't mean the points you get from Galactic Conquest which allows you to buy bonuses and troops etc, but the Players points beside the screen that tell you your rank.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks and a very Merry Christmas to one and all. :)

That is just so you know how many points you have gotten in your entire time playing. They use that points value to calculate "Points per life"

Really, it isn't used for anything except your own benefit.

I don't remember the values, but the more points you have, the more troops (up to 4) can be ordered to follow you around.

No, I think that is calaculated from the total amount of awards you have.

I'm pretty sure those points are your total kills + points earned by completing objectives and other non death related stuff.

Well, I always thought that you used them to advance ranks. If you bocome a general, you start out with the war hero and endurance award.

I'm not sure about that, I think you still have to earn them before they become available ingame.
The only thing I'm legendary in is endurance, and I while energy is harder to keep track of, I have to actually earn it in the beginning of the game to use it, sometimes it seems like it isn't persistent though.

It will display (in yellow) any awards that you are automatically awarded.

Well, for endurance, remember there are actions where ANY energy regen is stopped, namely when energy jumping / rolling / running(maybe)

But you will DEFINITELY see the difference with the spy.

I always thought it was medals that increased your rank as well, the player points don't really serve a purpose, exept for determine the rankings of players after the battle.

Yeah, that's what I figure. They pretty much want to give credit to the guys who performed the best in battle.
