This article contains lore taken from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

In Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, ranks are titles given to the player at the end of the mission which indicates the player's score and how well they did in battle. Warcraft II uses a streamlined scoring system that reduces the chances of one player "padding" their score in a large multiplayer game. The key to achieving a high score is simply to cause as much damage as possible. Your total point score is based on the number and type of enemy units that you kill.

  • If a player uses cheat codes at any time during a single-player mission or scenario, their rank (regardless of whatever score they accumulated) at the end of the game will show up as Cheater!
  • In Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, the orcs had the rank of "Raider" instead of Knight like currently in Warcraft II.
