NEW FEATURES

All new features will be available through the 5.9.1 Data Deployment (server-only), which will occur on Thursday, September 23rd pending a *successful developer release.

  • [CORVUS] Achieve victory through specialization using the Corvus in a strategic role of your choosing – debuting with five new pieces of equipment, there are more combinations of equipment than ever before with Tier 10 Light Vehicles! 
  • [QUICKMATCH] Based on feedback from the community in addition to data analytics, the quickmatch matchmaking algorithm will now prioritize matchups that are within 5 levels of your own. 
  • [DEFENSES] Railgun 12, Transformer 12, and Bravo & Charlie Platoon 16:
    • [RAILGUN 12] Give your base a defensive boost when up against Tier 10 Light Vehicles and Heavy Vehicles using increased DPS provided by upgrading the Railgun to level 12. 
    • [TRANSFORMER 12] When an attacker launches a surprise attack, answer with a boosted turret: the Transformer 12 provides a 95% speed boost for a single turret, a 5% increase from level 11.
    • [BRAVO & CHARLIE PLATOON 16] Save time from swapping out platoons by using the Bravo and Charlie Platoon 16. Want to use both a PvP platoon and a PvE platoon? A platoon with only helicopters and one with only Light Vehicles and Heavy Vehicles? Now you can!
  • [OSHKA EQUIPMENT] Take a last stand to victory by equipping one of two new pieces of Oshka Equipment: the Armored Aquila Compartment or Armored Corvus Compartment, which upon destruction, drops an Aquila or Corvus, respectively.

*We do everything we can to maintain a high quality experience. Despite our best efforts, due to unforeseen circumstances, we may need to shift release dates to meet these goals.
