Howdy Captains!

The time has come for this month’s event: Caress of Steel!  The Forsaken have continued their push towards The Lost Continent.  Greta Spader and Isurus have formed an alliance between the Draconians and The Scourge.  There are whispers that there may be more beneath the surface to their alliance.  The combined power of The Fangtooth fleets and the Hunter Mk.1 fleets may be too much for the Forsaken to overcome.  Event runs from Thursday, October 12th @ 9am PDT to Monday, October 16th @ 9am PDT.


“Caress of Steel” will begin on the following worlds at the following times:

  • World Alpha: 9AM PDT

  • World Beta: 10AM PDT

  • World Gamma: 11AM PDT

  • World Delta: 12PM PDT

  • World Epsilon: 1PM PDT

At the start of the event for each world, the following features will be disabled:

  • Relocation

  • Sector Threat

  • Base Parts targets

  • Gantry and Foundry targets

  • Daily Campaigns

  • Friends lists limited to 10

These features will become disabled at the start of the event for their respective worlds. For example, at 9am PST, relocation will be turned off in World Alpha but will be available for all other worlds. However, you cannot relocate to World Alpha once relocation has been turned off for that sector.

    Howdy Folks,

    There has been some confusion on the tier 7 targets.

    While they list 2,000,000 points for the reward that is for destroying ships in the target.  There is also a 2,000,000 reward for completing the target.  For a total of 4,000,000 point if complete either Hunter's Bay or Fangtooth Depths.

    If you complete both targets there is also a 4,000,000 point bonus for the set.
