BLUE SHIFT Briefing

May.12.2020 BY KIX_CALIBER

Feature Event: BLUE SHIFT

WHAT’S NEW?

  • NEW UNIT:  The Super Hornet is a fast, versatile fighter jet with multiple loadout options. It can function as a bomber, an anti-air dogfighter, or a targeted attack plane – the choice is yours. 
  • EVENT OBJECTIVES. Place high on the leaderboard for a bonus resource prize, or claim enough Super Hornet blueprints with your alliance to get one of the Super Hornet equipment blueprints for free!
  • What’s left behind. Commander, the Four Horsemen have decided it’s time to grant those who have proven themselves useful access to their private reserve. Rumour has it that their vault includes updated blueprints to the infamous Super Hornet. The stockpile of jets they have access to is unbelievable, we should start deploying them over Vajra airspace immediately. 

Blue Shift begins Thursday, May 14th @ 9:00 AM PDT. Good Luck!

REWARDS

Players in the Beginner, Mid, and Vet tiers can choose from a selection of the best Unit blueprints in Rogue Assault. Players in the Elite tier can pick up the Super Hornet, a new fighter jet that provides versatile loadouts to rain destruction from the skies above to the enemies below!  

The F18 Super Hornet was one of the most used fighting aircraft in the world before the fall. After being mysteriously absent for some time, the stockpile of these planes has been discovered and updated. Now the Super Hornet is master of the skies and feared by those on the ground.
