Technology, Commander, is what separates us from the animals. To maintain our edge, we must hone the efficiency with which we kill. A recent communication interception has given us insight into new units that promise the upper hand that we need to survive. Prove yourself worthy of wielding such power by taking over Resource Deposits on the World Map. Operation: Warhawk begins at 9 a.m. PST on May 30th. A good bloodbath is the only true victory.
  — R.U.B.I. Facebook Announcement 

Commander, I've intercepted some encrypted messages between two Rogue Factions. I'll need to review them to be certain, but it appears they've discovered a new ground unit as well as new aircraft. I'll need time to crack the database, but of course, I'll succeed. The question is, are you ready for what I might find?
  — Event Message #1 

Bravo, Commander. I've tested your mettle, and you've proved yourself worthy of these new tools of destruction. You should visit the Leaderboard to compare your progress to other players and continue to fight for dominance on the World Map.
  — Event Message - Objectives Complete 

Commander, a good leader's worth is measured by the blood they shed. Prove you deserve these instruments of war by taking over resource deposits and reap the rewards.
