Not sure how to play Shipwrecks? READ THE INTRODUCTION POST HERE!


Shipwrecks includes the following:

  • New Shipwreck World Map targets. Defeat any defending fleets on these targets to claim the Shipwreck as your own. Rewards pay out every 5 minutes from the moment the Shipwreck spawns, with a big bonus reward for whatever player owns the Shipwreck once its timer fully expires at 15 minutes. Be the Pirate who owns the Shipwreck when those payouts happen in order to earn event points.


  • Personal and Alliance Shipwreck targets mean your success can earn points for your entire team. Coordinate with your alliance to find those rare, high value Alliance Shipwrecks and defend them with everything you’ve got!

  • Shipwreck Outposts are also available for those who don’t want to fight over territory. Shipwreck Outposts are essentially Shipwreck replicas, and can be defeated for a small one-time payout of points.

  • A great chance for those who earned the Interceptors to try them out - as these hulls are top of the line at Fleet v Fleet. Don’t have any Interceptors yet? No problem! ALL PVP SHIP TYPES CAN BE USED.

  • Claim Interceptors and automatic Building Upgrades, along with tons of other great prizes, in the Shipwreck Event Store.


NEW CONTENT

Strike Frigate & Corsair

Special Note: You’ll notice that these hulls don’t have any tech blueprints available to claim in the Event Store. That’s because Interceptors come with blueprints for two Specials and two Weapons already unlocked, which are unique to these hulls as equippable options. Mix and match these blueprints in whatever way you want to play the way you want to play!

CM NOTES


  • You’ll notice that these hulls don’t have any tech blueprints available to claim in the Event Store. That’s because Interceptors come with blueprints for two Specials and two Weapons already unlocked, which are unique to these hulls as equippable options. Mix and match these blueprints in whatever way you want to play the way you want to play!

  • Structure Upgrade prizes automatically apply their specified upgrade. For example, purchasing Walls 10 will upgrade all your Walls that are not yet level 10 up to level 10. This upgrade will not be available for purchase if you already have these upgrades.

  • As there is an Alliance Leaderboard, alliance roster changes will be disabled until the leaderboard payouts are issued.

  • Sector Threat will be disabled while Shipwrecks is ongoing.




Good luck, Pirates!

    Answer to some questions that have arisen:

    - Clicking on a Shipwreck Outpost will tell you its payout. The Shipwrecks themselves have an A2, A3, and P1 indicator next to them to let you know which rank of payout they are. You'll be able to see who owns what in the Targets locator for the modal.

    - Interceptors do not have built-in 360 degree firing arcs. They have unique firing angles defined in the stat block, and the weapons have their own firing arcs independent to the main hull (unfortunately not outlined in their stat blocks but we're working on that). Driving well is the key to victory with Interceptors due to these firing arcs - as it is the key to victory against them. We'll try to put together some screenshots for the briefing tomorrow.

    - There is no blitz functionality in this activity. There may be in the future, but not in this iteration.

    - Interacting with a Shipwreck does NOT pop your PvP bubble. 

    - The team chose to release the Corsair for store claims before the Strike Frigate because the Corsair is the easier one to drive. Team felt it would be better to get more player hands on this one first. The Strike Frigate will be releasing either next week or in the June Raid. 

    - Regarding feedback about the event appearing to be a big grind. Note that the Outposts and their payouts are designed to be filler between battling over Shipwrecks themselves. They are absolutely not designed to be the only target you're hitting to acquire content and therefore achieving prizes based on those alone should not be considered.

    SURPRISE! We just added the Strike Frigate to the Shipwrecks store. Enough of you bought the Corsair offer (awesome job, btw) that we want to make sure you still have a chase prize for the activity.

    The team is working on fixing the spawner issue for Outposts, sorry for the delay.

    The spawning issue should now be resolved. The team is continuing to look into the issue with players being unable to join certain targets.
