STRATCOM have been made aware that those Commanders risking their lives every day in the Wasteland are in need of a little more than airdrops and ground support – so we are rolling out a new system to aid those Commanders achieve their mission. This new system is referred to as “Echelon Status”.
A Commander under the effects of Echelon Status will receive many benefits and various powerful Bonuses, including improvements to all areas of Sector and Unit statistics. Once a Commander has collected enough Echelon Points, they may activate Echelon Status by using an Echelon Activator. Your Echelon Status will expire after a set amount of time, at which point you must reactivate it manually. You can earn Echelon Points simply from logging into the game every day. For each consecutive day you log into the game, you will be rewarded with an increasing number of Echelon Points.
Once you have amassed enough Echelon Points, you must activate your Echelon Status with an Echelon Activator. You can earn Echelon Activators as rewards for participating in various special game events, or simply purchase them at the Black Market, within the “Misc” tab.
Your Echelon Status must be “Active” in order for you to feel the benefits, so remember to keep an eye on when it expires and activate it whenever you can. To do so, go to the Black Market, open the “Misc.” tab and click “Apply” next to the Echelon Activator.
Your Echelon Status has multiple Levels, which can be reached simply by collecting Echelon Points. Click the “Echelon” icon along the top menu to view the Echelon Progress Bar along with the number of Points you must earn to reach the next Echelon Level. The Echelon window displays the following information:
- Total number of Echelon Points;
- Your current Echelon Level
- Remaining time until your current Echelon Status expires;
- Number of Echelon Points you will receive the next time you log in;
- Your current Echelon Run, which shows the number of days you have played in a row.
As your total Echelon Points increase, so will your Echelon Level and the power of your accompanying bonuses when your Echelon Status is activated.
Remember – the higher your Echelon Level, the greater your rewards!

Your Sector and Army are growing in strength every day, but there’s a lot more to do! Maximize Echelon Points in order to truly put a dent in Morgana’s forces!
Successful Commanders know that once they’ve collected enough Echelon Points, they’re able to activate Echelon Status and take advantage of powerful bonuses! Before, players could only receive Echelon Points from logging in each day but, thanks to a little tweak in the system, that’s all about to change.
From now on, all Commanders can earn Echelon Points in many different game events!
You can now earn Echelon Points by completing:
- Capturing Deposits
- Battles with Morgana's Mutants
- Campaign Missions, etc.
ATTENTION! STRATCOM has changed the number of Echelon Points required to advance through Echelon Levels! To reach Level 10, Commanders previously needed 6,400 Echelon Points, but as of today that number has changed to 10,000. IMPORTANT! Your current Echelon Level will not change after the update.
Remember: As your total number of Echelon Points increases, so will your Echelon Level and the power of those accompanying bonuses when your Echelon Status is activated. The higher your Echelon Level, the greater your rewards!
Play your part in the fight for the Wasteland and participate in battles to earn Echelon Points and show off your stuff!
Commanders would be wise to familiarize themselves with this new system before destroying this document.
