I've been reading the manga and saw Smoker get owned a lot, so i started thinking didnt he say he was only the commander of his fleet while Vergo was commander of the G5 base, so Vergo is higher up on the ladder than Smoker right.So lets get to the point i think if a VA wants to become an admiral he has to move up from being a fleet commander like Smoker to being a base commander like Vergo then probably become something like a region commander like maybe Garp (i am just assuming that Garp had a position like that) and after proving his dominance in his region which might take years, he will then be promoted to admiral.

what do you guys think?????
