Greetings, Captains!

This release includes new Forsaken Mission prizes and a small improvement to VXP instant ranking.

VXP instant ranking in bulk

Players may now choose to instantly purchase VXP ranks in bundles of three ranks at a time. This should help speed up instant ranking fleets.

Forsaken Mission Prizes

Three new Elite prizes and a new Fallback Prize enter the FM this week.

Armor Piercing Shells

Armor Piercing Shells is a ship special that increases ballistic damage and reduces Pierce Decay for weapons that have this stat.

Note: Pierce Decay is the percentage by which a weapon's primary damage will decrease each time it passes through an enemy ship or building. Pierce Decay Reduction is subtractive; not multiplicative or additive.

Cadmium Solar Panels

This turret special increases Base Power when equipped.

Zynthonite Armor D5-M

This armor provides penetrating defense and adds Assault & Siege Deflection to any ship it is equipped. This deflection stacks additively to hulls that have Deflection and adds Deflection to any hull that does not have these stats. Read more about the Deflection stat here

A new limited prize enters the fallback position, the Coldsnap Rocket Turret.

The Coldsnap Rocket Turret is the limited fallback prize for reaching the Elite tier when no other prizes are available. This powerful turret will disable enemy tactical fields, auras, and overloads for 5 seconds when it hits. Ships with Unreactive are affected by this debuff.
