Pilots! We continue to share the latest changes that will appear on the game servers in the upcoming updates.

 

Today we are going to tell you about the second phase of the Moon race and the new phase of the Ellydium destroyer Ze'Ta research.

 

“A big step for humanity”

We remind you, that in honour of the 2650th anniversary of the first landing on the satellite of the legendary Earth — the Moon, all pilots can participate in a special event — the “Moon Race”!

 

“Moon Race” will be held in three phases. The second phase will be available from July 25. From this day on, pilots will have access to both the first and second phases of the race. You can open stages in both phases simultaneously.

 

To gain access to all the rewards of the second phase, pilots need to purchase the Moon Pass “A big step for humanity”. As in the first phase, the rewards for the first and every fifth stages will be available to everyone, regardless of pass ownership.

 

As a reward for completing the stages of the Moon race, players will get unique stickers, paint, decor, portraits, resources for researching the destroyer Ze'Ta to ranks 15-17 and many different bonuses. And for the last stage of the phase, all players will be able to get the second part of the “Manual Piloting System” of the three required for the Jericho guard frigate Custodian

Corporation “Ellydium” is ready to present the final stage of Evolution! The destroyer “Ze'Ta” will be available for modifications of ranks 15-17!

 

To unlock the new ship nodes, unique resources will be needed. They will be available during the “Moon Race” event.

 

In the near future, the third special destroyer module “Fast Swarm”, which allows you to switch the swarm to the “acceleration”, “projectile” and “cloud” modes, will become available.

 

Also, players will get access to a new “Ellydium” destroyer weapon — “Plasma burster”, firing short bursts of explosive projectiles. At the point of impact, such projectiles leave highly active gas, dangerous for any matter.

 

The new active module “Crystalline suppressor” launches one large crystalline projectile, divided into small projectiles on hit.

 

The power unit modifier will allow you to control the swarm for some time after the destroyer receives deadly damage, and after the module’s effect ends, the destroyer explodes. And the CPU modifier will allow the controlled swarm to fire, releasing single drones as a projectile.

 

The wait is almost over! Stay tuned, and see you in space!

Too bad we still need to unlock "balanced swarm" to advance.

Keeping the ranks locked behind nodes is a bad bad bad bad bad bad idea.

Well that Ze'Ta announcement was somewhat unexpected, locking progress behind special modules wouldn't be so bad if they weren't so hard to get, as in either being locked behind crates, or needing an exorbitant amount of resources, hopefully the moon race will help, but judging by the fact we need a new pass, I strongly doubt that.

Ze'Ta update announcement is good, definitely a win for destroyer players but I have this lingering question when will the other destroyers have a chance of joining such a generous upgrade?

Also are there any plans for Destroyer upgrades other than the Ze'Ta in a nearby future?

No because we can't afford to pay for them.

Wait, does this mean that it will be Ze'Ta r17? Or r15 max and this 17 is only for modules?

Modules and weapons usually go to 17. I'm not sure if the actual ship will reach R17. If it does I'll be very surprised.

Aw, I was hoping that the Moon Pass would just extend to the next stages. Bummer.

hmmm

Does this mean that even if I can't finish Stage 1 before 25th July, I can still complete the Stage at a later time?

No locking me out?

If that is the case: Phew...
