This week, we have fixed some bugs and made some important updates:

Now, to share in your Combine’s success and receive Rewards, you have to personally earn at least 100 Tournament Points during Combine Tournaments. No more slackers unwilling to contribute in order to spare their troops!

One more thing, Commander. Try as you might, sometimes the army and tactics you employ are weaker than ZHG’s. This can cost you troops and morale. The good news is that from this day on, you will get Tournament Points even if you lose a battle at a Location! All you have to do is destroy ZHG troops! The more you eliminate, the more Points you’ll get!

Participate in Combine Tournaments, earn at least 100 Tournament Points, and be handsomely rewarded!

  • From now on, you will have a choice of UP TO THREE incredible Packages that are sure to give you the competitive edge! These Packages are time-sensitive, so don’t hesitate, Commander! Take advantage of these offers now to expand your army and fortify your Base!

This week, we have fixed some bugs and made some important updates:

  • Introduction of a new streamlined system of competitive military interaction between Commanders - Global Tournaments!

Global Tournaments are a chance to show off your skills and demonstrate your superiority over rival Commanders! Participation in Global Tournaments usually requires Commanders to take on dangerous missions, collecting as many Tournament Points as possible by completing various objectives. The Tournament Points you've collected will be tallied by the Syndicate. All Commanders who succeed will be rewarded based on the amount of Points they’ve scored.

All Commanders are divided into Classes according to their respective Level: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, and Expert. Your reward from Global Tournaments depends on which Class you belong to when you engage in the mission.

There are several types of Global Tournaments:

  • Mining Complex Takeover. This Tournament takes the battle from the arena into the Global Map. You will need to conquer and hold Mining Complexes in order to earn Tournament Points, and the number of Tournament Points you ultimately collect depends on how many Units you take down at Mining Complexes.
  • Contract Contest. Commanders don't need to demonstrate their battlefield strength here, but their intelligence. Negotiating and upgrading Contracts will earn you Tournament Points. The more time a Contract takes to negotiate or upgrade, the more Tournament Points you'll score!
  • Construction Contest. Behind every strong army, there is a well-developed Base. Construct and upgrade buildings in your Base to get Tournament Points. The longer a building takes to construct or upgrade, the more Tournament Points you'll get for it! Whoever makes the most progress wins!
  • PvP Warfare. Battle other Commanders to get Tournament Points. The more of their troops you take down, the more Points you'll get. It doesn't matter whether you're on the offensive or defensive side. The more Points you rack up, the bigger your rewards at the end of the Tournament!
  • Location Annihilation. In this Tournament, Commanders are tasked with engaging ZHG in as many Locations across Zandia as they can. The higher the Location level, the more Tournament Points you get for clearing it - and the more Tournament Points you collect, the bigger the rewards you stand to earn!

You can access Global Tournaments via the brand new Icon in the bottom left corner of your screen. Battle to take a top spot in the Rankings and get even more massive rewards!

This week, we have fixed some bugs and made the following important updates:

The reward structure for Combine Contracts has been changed in two major ways!

-The number of Points required to advance to higher-level reward tiers has been decreased. This means bigger prizes are now easier to achieve! Recall that the Reward Packs include Resources, Units, Boosts and other Zandia essentials, and that if your Combine is successful, every member will receive one!

-All Reward Packs for completing Clan Missions will be stored for 3 days only! Nothing lasts forever, Commanders – certainly not these Rations!

So remember to claim your rewards at the Black Market under the “Misc.” tab and take advantage of them while you can! If you’re too late, you’ll see the Reward Pack marked as expired, and you’ll have to click the “Remove” button to take it off your Black Market.

  • The time needed for negotiating contracts has Been increased. The benefits Players were receiving for their negotiation were long term, but the time needed to upgrade to further levels was not at all logical and justified.

New Combine Achievements! Acquire Top Ranking Positions!

New Achievements and new Combine Ranking mechanics are now in effect!

Commanders are advised to ready their troops and prepare for battle immediately – the Combines that act quickly will be able to earn these new Achievements before their rivals!

Achievements

1. Mobilizers. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must hire Units that are worth the indicated number of Power Points.

2. Destroyers. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must attack and defend the indicated number of Locations.

3. Raiders. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must gain the specified amount of Resources from Raids.

4. Performers. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must complete the set number of Special Operations.

5. Angels of Death. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must destroy rival Units that are worth the indicated number of Power Points.

6. Engineers. To earn this Achievement, a Combine must upgrade Mining Complexes the indicated number of times.

Having completed an Achievement, each Combine will be given their rewards, along with individual rewards for each participating Combine Member. Remember; there are two types of Achievement Bonuses – Combine Bonuses and Individual Bonuses!

If you do not see your recent progress reflected in the Rankings, don’t worry – all stats related to Rankings and Dominance Points are updated every 30 minutes!

Dominance Points

These Points determine each Combine's position in the Combine Rankings!

Dominance Points are calculated as follows:

1. By converting the territory of a Combine's conquered Mining Complexes into Dominance Points. A 100:1 ratio is used for conversion, so 1 sq. km of territory equals 100 Dominance Points;

2. By taking into account a Combine’s Achievements. Up until now, a percentage bonus was applied to a Combine’s territory based on its Achievements. Combines will still benefit from this bonus, but now it will be applied to their Dominance Points instead;

3. Each Achievement will now have its own additional reward, in terms of Dominance Points, that will be added to a Combine’s total number of Dominance Points. Power Points

Power Points are a unique value assigned to each Unit in the game, based on and relative to its respective Offensive or Defensive value. Power Points are used to make progress towards certain Achievements, and also play a significant role in the base calculation for experience points earned during battles.


Update: December 5, 2014

Update.jpg

New Class Rankings!

  • All Commanders will be sorted into Classes based on their Experience Levels: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, or Expert. The Classes are determined at the beginning of the PvP Operation, and Commanders will not switch Class brackets, regardless of how much they level up during the course of the Operation.

When the PvP Operation is complete, those who occupy the top positions in each of the Class Rankings will earn huge rewards! This way, novice players have a chance to earn big rewards, as well. However, be advised: the size of the rewards does increase with the Experience Level of the Class bracket.


Update: December 4, 2014

Update.jpg

Inviting Friends is now easier and more convenient than ever before!
