Global Tournaments Are Now Available!
Collect Tournament Points and Get Awesome Rewards!

STRATCOM SECURE TRANSMISSION

Commanders!

STRATCOM is proud to announce that our long-awaited game update has just become available! Our best STRATCOM engineers have been working up a sweat to introduce a new, more convenient and efficient system of global interaction between Commanders - the Global Tournaments!

Global Tournaments are special missions that allow you to cooperate with your fellow Commanders to complete global objectives. Participation is optional; however, the outcome of each Global Tournament can alter the structure of the Wasteland, resulting in permanent changes to the game map, and unlock rewards or new game features for participating players.

Participation in Global Tournaments requires Commanders to collect as many Tournament Points as possible by completing missions with various goals. The Tournament Points you've collected will then be transferred to STRATCOM's strategic reserves. All Global Tournaments are voluntary, and all contributing Commanders will be rewarded according to their overall contribution

All Commanders are divided into Leagues according to their respective Level: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, and Expert. Even novice players who occupy top positions in their Leagues can receive large rewards - not just experienced players. The scale of your reward from Global Tournaments depends on which League you belong to when you engage in the mission. You and your fellow Commanders are divided into Leagues before each Global Tournament, and you will remain locked in that League bracket for its duration, even if you level up during the mission.

You can access Global Tournaments via the newly installed icon on the bottom left corner of your screen. Troops are already lining up to wreak havoc across the Wasteland so don’t waste a minute! Battle to take a top spot at the Rankings and get irresistible rewards!

Hi General Winters,

I have been enjoying the Global Tournaments that I have encountered so far but I have a question. Since the start of Global Tournaments I have not seen a Global Operation take place, do Global Tournaments spell the end of Global Operations or will Global Operations continue on a less frequent basis?

If Global Tournaments do mean we wont be seeing any more Global Operations is there any intention of adding the possibility of earning Fleet Battle Group units from Global Tournaments like you could from Global Operations?

Thanks,

SlothRocket

Global tournaments replace the old global operations.  I do hope they add fleets back to the rewards, as I believe most players do, but I'm not sure what their plans are on that.

Why are the rewards for the emitter tournament so weak?  They're like half the ones of the pvp tournament for the same amount of points, when it's also more difficult to get points because you have to do emitters and can't hit deposits or sectors.

Oh and I can't even participate in the building tournament, since I have all my building upgraded and all my techs take at least 2 days to upgrade, so none of them will finish before the tournament ends...

Lol, all my buildings are at max level, also all my techresearch is at max level. This already for more then a year!

 

I also deleted some buildings to make room at my sector, so started to rebuild them now.... 0 points

Commanders, as you can see, the tournaments for uprgade and building are mostly oriented on new players. This doesn't mean that we don't care about our Veteran users. 

At the same time most of new players can't participate in Emitters capturing operations.

Don't regret about lost possibilities, you all have other ways to get new experience and rewards.

Meanwhile, we are working on other tournaments that can be available for all groups of players. Thanks

Well there's some integrity in that.

"At the same time most of new players can't participate in Emitters capturing operations."

Separating PVP for troops killed and emitter killing is probably one of the best things done this year, though it is admittedly too late for me, as level 64, to benefit from it :P

So, umm, General, have you like... ummm... NERFED THE REWARDS for ALL tournaments? :P
