Loyalty can affect the number of Credits you earn when mining. The more loyalty, the more credits you will earn. This also applies to the amount of damage you can do on a ship. The more loyalty, the more damage you do. The time needed to gain a certain loyalty is calculated with the following mathematic formula: y = 45x(x-1)-20, x representing the amount of loyalty and y the time needed to reach x loyalty (in seconds)
