🌋 Commander! We have a new epic event for the Strike Groups—Volcano!

The Volcano will appear on your global map twice a month.
You will find the newest base: an armed with the latest technology and insanely dangerous Tiburona's refuge!

Any Strike Group members, regardless of level and staffing, will take turns attacking the base. The base is filled with guns and the latest prototypes of attack and health amplifiers, so we suggest you carefully recon and adjust your troops choice!

📜 Let's take a quick look at the basic rules of the new event.

 At the start of Volcano, each one of you will have 1 attack—use it to take turns attacking the Volcanic base.

 +1 extra attack every 90 minutes for each Strike Group member.

 +1 extra attack for the ones destroying the HQ.

 You can save up to 8 attacks, so don't spare them for too long!

 Also, any attack with any damage done brings you resources: gold, wood, steel, and oil. With some chance, you can get Laboratory Materials as well ⚙️

💾 The damage inflicted by your clanmates remains—just like in Strike Battles!

After HQ's destruction, the base rebuilds back again—even stronger and crazier! And a new stage begins. With each subsequent stage, the planning will become more complicated so you will need a great skill to win!

 A pleasant bonus for the most courageous ones: for each building destroyed on the base you receive Volcanium, which goes to the common piggy bank of your Strike Group.

Collect more Volcanium to rise higher on Volcano leaderboard. Strike Groups that are in TOP will be able to choose the best awards! 🥇🥈🥉

And the last but not the least. We don't want to overload players with too many activities that both require so much effort. Which is why the game schedule needed adjusting: The Global Operation will now run once in 3 weeks (next GO will start on August, 8). We're sorry for the inconvenience and hope you'll love the new event!

  • I am liking the volcano event, but there are a few issues with the event that I have seen so far.

     The event is not balanced and there is no chance for the lower teams to get into the top slots. Should this be segregated depending on ship level. For instance, teams with ship level 1-5, 5-10, 10-25 have separate battles for the top rewards, etc. At present a level 10 ship will never get in the top 10 as teams with ship level 20 plus will always win. So either have separate achievements depending on ship level, or weight the points awarded between low and higher ship levels to give level the playing field for all.

     There is serious lag when attacking and often you have little control on what you are doing

     There has also been instances where an attack has been made but this attack then goes missing and is not counted, but you do not get your troops back.

    One last things, considering the effort, gear, coins and all that used, the rewards do not seem to be that great, especially if you are not in the top slots, see previous comment on this.

  • That should have been level 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16 to 20 and 21 plus. But think you get the drift

    Hi Gordon!

    First of all, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the new event!

    As to the chance for lower teams to get to the top — it's actually not an imbalance but the way competition works. If everyone is a winner, then no one is a winner. Lower teams fight to get better rewards in their own 'league' of rating (Top 800, Top 500), but it's okay if they cannot pass further at some point as stages get stronger and stronger (and they look the same for every team). For the top teams, it's a reward for their hard work, and for the lowers it's an encouragement to keep up the good work upgrading and gaining skills (with a good pile of resources for upgrades as well!)

    With Volcano coming back every two weeks, lower teams will be able to see the progress granted by upgrades made since the last one ended. Don't give up!
