We are deploying an update to all live servers on Thursday, November 7th. This update will contain the Stage One of our new Assignments and – time to get excited: Escort Tournaments!
The primary source of content has always been the daily missions. In the first phase of our new assignment system we are going to change the missions significantly. So what’s to expect?
Well, how does this sound?
250% increase of the Daily Mission rewards
Cubits and Merits are added to Dynamic Mission rewards for Gold and Platinum levels
Good for a start, eh? And there is even more. You will find new missions in your Daily Mission logs as well, for you to participate in the new dynamic content of our game and get more loot out of it! The two new missions are:
Regional Combat Patrol: Participate in 3 dynamic missions
You have been asking for it and we have heard your call! Pretty soon we are looking for the “Escort Top Gun”!
With this release we are going to introduce our new Escort Tournaments. Those tournaments are pretty similar to the Strike tournaments. They are featuring the same characteristics, but the sector is much bigger and you are only able to participate if you are above level 10.
Also as a part of streamlining our game content and cross-promote different game elements to animate everyone to play we are exchanging Tuning Kits for Interdiction Duty map packs – depending on the ranking in both the Escort and Strike tournaments.
We also improved our ranking display for both tournaments! Look out for the new tables to see your position after the next tournament!
So join the battle and be the next Escort Top Gun!
