Game Update November 1, 2023

Around 9:00 AM UTC+1, game servers will restart for a game update to be deployed.

Site Takeover Mechanics
  • We changed the way that ownership of sites (Travel Gates, Claims) is handled after a successful takeover attack (i.e. after fully draining a site):
    • Before, the first person to supply the drained site would claim ownership of the site for their clan. Players with low ping (fast-responding internet connection) had advantages here over players with higher ping.
    • Now, the person who initiated the attack on the site will automatically claim ownership for their clan if and when the attack succeeds.
      • The supply pack that was used for initiating the attack will also be used to supply the site after the successful takeover. The "Long-Life Supplies" Power Gel is taken into account as well, so that the inital supply level of a site following a takeover attack can be greater than 25%.

Texts Update November 1, 2023

Around 15:25 AM UTC+1, game texts have been updated (restart game or change languages to see updated texts).

Site Takeover Mechanics Text Fix
  • Clarified in text that when you "join in" a running site takeover attack, you cannot take over that site as a direct result of that attack. If a takeover attack is successful, the site will automatically go to the player who initiated the attack by entering a supply pack.
