    They're post count rankings. they get higher as you post more, so the more you post, the higher you're rank. and the mod that came up with the idea chose to give each level a name based on ancient greek gladiator ranks/types.

    happy now?

    Interceptor: great simpsons reference.it made me laugh, anyway.

    From Ancienthistory.com

    http://ancienthistory.about.com/cs/g...atorweapon.htm

    Types of Gladiators

    Andabatae wore helmets without eye holes

    Catervarii did not fight in pairs, but several together

    Dimacheri fought with two swords

    Equites fought on horseback

    Essedarii fought from chariots like the Gauls and Britons

    Hoplomachi were like the Samnites, but more heavily armed
    They wore ocrea on both legs and mail or leather cuirasses

    Laqueatores used a noose to catch their adversaries

    Meridiani fought in the middle of the day, after the wild beast fights
    They were lightly armed

    Myrmillo wore a large galea with a fish on its crest, a manica of mail, leather or metal scales on his left arm, ocrea on at least one leg, a scutum and a straight Greek-styled sword

    Ordinarii were the regular gladiators who fought in pairs in the ordinary way

    Provocator was armed like the Samnite with a parma and a hasta, his opponent was often the Myrmillo

    Retiarius wore a subligaculum and a metal galerus on the left arm
    He carried a net, a dagger and a trident or tunny-fish fascina
    The Samnite used scutum and ocrea on his left leg, a galea with a large crest and plume, and a gladius

    The Secutor carried a large oval or rectangular shield, an ocrea on his left leg, a round or high-visored helmet, manicae at the elbow and wrists, and a sword or dagger
    Thracian wore ocrea on both legs, a small square shield, a helmet, a sica or the Thracian sword.
