It’s competition time. New formations haven’t been added to VEGA Conflict for quite some time, but and we’re opening up design contest submissions this weekend. Each person can submit two designs. This is your opportunity to have your design featured and added to the game!
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 fiction, 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: two Battleships as each groups lead ship with two Cruisers to support each. One group could be used as a decoy, while the second group flanks.
Things to Consider
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 Sunday 28th of April PT.
The finalized details may be modified before being released in-game.
We’re eager to see the types of designs that are submitted! Please include your formation submissions as a reply to this message. Once the submission period has ended, the game team will vote on the top 3. Each winner will receive all three formations once they're released.
Good luck, Rebels
