Detailed Play Information

Notable Event Features


  • Occasionally players will be subjected to bonus surprise rouge attacks called Blitz Waves.
    • The Blitz Wave is different from a standard Defense Wave in several ways :
      • The player is only allowed a maximum of 5 min to prepare their base prior to the wave beginning.
      • If the player fails or surrenders a Blitz Wave they will automatically move to the next wave level.
      • If the player survives they will receive Bonus eXP.
      • The Armored Corps & Hell Hounds combine their forces for Blitz Waves.




  • Occasionally the player will be given a chance to choose between attacking either the Armored Corps or the Hell Hounds with the difference being :
    • The Armored Corps - Normal Base - Standard Difficulty - Standard eXP Payout
    • The Hell Hounds - Elite Base - Higher Difficulty - Raised eXP Payout
  • Upon completing the Strike Backattack wave the rogue faction of the following attack waves will be determined by the level of the corresponding wave.



  • A Player Exclusive Event Base is a Rogue Faction Event Base that is attached to each Player's Base for the entirety of the Event.
    • This event base will serve as the target for all Attacking Waves for the player.
      • The event base may only be attacked by the player to which it is attached.
      • The event base will remain in a Protection Bubble until the player has reached a Attack Wave.
      • During Attack Waves the the bubble is removed and the player is allowed access to the event base.
      • The Level and Layout of the base will change based on the players current attack wave.
      • The event base will always appear under a Protection Bubble to all other players.
    • The colored hexagon that adjoins the player's base to the event base may only be occupied by the player to which it is attached throughout the duration of the event.
      • This insures the player will always have at least one hex to gain access to the event base.
