Analysis of our partners' operations involving UMC mercenaries and the emergence of new advanced technologies suggest that several new players have appeared in the quarantine worlds. Probably from the hub worlds. This confirms the assumption that the portal storm is weakening or, according to the other hypothesis, changes configuration.

New players have not yet manifested themselves and, for some unknown reason, act through intermediaries or conclude secret agreements with organizations of interest to them. It's possible that their possibilities of communication and transportation through the portal storm are still limited and such conditions for our guests from the hub worlds are dictated by contacts on our side.

Both assumptions allow one to expect an increase in attempts to reach out to various representatives of the hub worlds in the near future. 

For UMC establishing such contacts should be a priority. The opportunity to enter the hub world markets will raise the organization to a new level and will allow the quarantine worlds to dictate their terms of contact with the Metropolises. It is worth taking into account that fierce competition is expected for the right to occupy the niche of an intermediary between quarantine and hub worlds.

Subject: Project ‘Sirius’

Pilots! It's time to strengthen the fleet again with the power of rank 14 destroyers. UMC leadership was able to allocate capacity for construction of the Federation destroyer ‘Sirius’. The ship's unique special module and its active modules and modifiers will also make a return. The construction of the destroyer ‘Sirius’ will be available for a limited time!

Children's Day

Today is a special day. Only on this day our ‘Veterans’ actively help newcomers and get a special achievement for this.
To do this, your squad needs players with a rating 1000 points below yours. Help them in battle!

Do not miss the opportunity to explain to beginners how an ‘adult’ fight should be: if there are players in your squad with a rating 1000 points below yours and you win the battle, then you, as a real defender, will get a unique achievement ‘Child Protector’.

Achievement can be obtained before June 4 inclusive.

 

Federation destroyer Sirius

The first ‘public’ Sirius destroyer was designed and developed in the mega-popular show ‘The Shipyad’, whose ratings broke all records. Thirty engineers competed for six months for the right to be called ‘King of the Shipyard’, the outcome was decided by viewer voting. Military leadership initially could not believe the success of the project, but gave permission to use one of its shipyards, when producers collected the required amount of credits on a crowdfunding platform. To everyone's surprise, Sirius was not only a high-quality ship, powerful and reliable machine, but at also relatively inexpensive to manufacture. After the show, Sirius was put into service, and its blueprints were submitted to UMC. Currently, the producers are raising money for a second season of the project.

Leaders of the Federation and UMC are extremely concerned about the increased strength of Ellydium corporation. In retaliation, all pilots are offered the opportunity to obtain the necessary resources to build a rank 14 destroyer ‘Sirius’ in the shortest possible time.

Every day, by completing the Broker's special mission players will be able to receive 12 units of impure neodium as a reward.

You can get valuable resources for construction of destroyers in post-battle trophy search on ships of the following ranks:

  • Ranks 8-11 — a chance to get Neodium and Beryllium.
  • Rank 11 — increased chance to get Beryllium.
  • Ranks 14-15 — a chance to receive Electrum.
