Calling all fleet commanders!
It’s competition time! So, now that you know how starting formations work, its time to get creative. We want you the VEGA Conflict community to come up with designs for starting formations. The best layouts will be added to the game after the feature launches, so here is your opportunity to get your design into VEGA Conflict!
The following format must be used when submitting formation ideas:
Name: A creative name for identifying the formation (one or two words)
Description: A very brief description of the formation, it's function, or its use
Formation: an image of the fleets six ships starting positions. The formation layout should fit within the image provided below and the position icons (circles) should be about the size shown in the images in this post. Optionally, you can include the slot position numbers on each circle.
Explanation: An optional explanation as to how and why you would want to use this formation, what sort of situations it is used for, etc…
Description: A standard military formation for long-range missions
Explanation: A cool formation that can easily be split into two groups, I’d use two Dread Battleships as each groups lead ship with two Destiny Corvettes to support each. One group could be used as a decoy, while the second group flanks.
To get you started here are some ideas you should consider when designing your formations:
Practical - what formations do you currently do at the start of combat?
Creative - what other formations would you like to see or would you see as being useful?
Why is your formation useful and how would you use it?
Does your formation take advantage of different hull types?
Is it designed for a specific or general play style
Is it best for base combat, fleet combat, or both?
Competition will run from today until 4:00 PM Monday 8th of June PDT.
As with all our community competitions, KIXEYE reserves the right to change and/or modify any formation, name or description, etc... they choose when adding the winning entry to the game.
So this is it, your chance to get your fleet design added to VEGA Conflict. The team is eager to see what creative and useful formations you all come up with.
