To all pilots in fringe sectors! We are re-opening the testing department after our latest research results. The new ship is the top of Evolution technologies, the most important line of human defence in the world of Aliens!

‘Ellydium’ Engineering Frigate Waz'Got

The newest state-of-the-art engineering frigate ‘Waz'Got’ is the quintessence of scientific thought and the result of the collective work of all the employees and scientists of the Ellydium Theta station. The frigate's incredible capabilities will provide its allies with reliable support and will give a chance of victory in battle even over superior enemy forces.

The tech used in special and active modules are a further development of advanced scientific theory, developed under the guidance of Dr. Matthew Gilmore and Conrad Dimeni. A unique feature of the ship allows it to use the wreckages of destroyed ships to enhance its own power.

Currently, the ship is available for modification from rank 5 to 8.

Attention! Every report of a real bug related to the ship Waz'Got will be rewarded! Learn more in our traditional Contest ‘Bug Hunters’.

 

Ship Wreckages

A unique feature of the new ‘Ellydium’ ship Waz'Got is the ability to process and use the remains of enemy or allied ships. Ship wreckages can be used to activate special modules, active modules and special weapons of the frigate.

  • The maximum amount of debris on board the frigate is 4.
  • The first 2 fragments can be created under certain conditions directly by the frigate's crystals.
  • The remaining debris can be found in the remains of ships destroyed in battle:
    • Fragments are available for a limited time after the ship's destruction.
    • The fragments are only visible and available to the commander of the frigate Waz'Got.

 

Ship Cabin

The cabin is the most important component of the ship. To build the ship, pilots first need to manufacture a ship cabin and obtain Xenocrystals. After construction, ‘Ellydium’ ships can be developed from rank 5 to 8 inclusive. Xenocrystals are required for the ship's upgrades.

Some development nodes on Elydium ships now increase the limit of the ship's evolution upon acquisition. To increase the ship's rank you need to research such development nodes.

 

Engineering Frigate Waz'Got Special Modules

Pilots can choose which special module to use for the ship Waz'Got. The ship's appearance changes with the selected special module. At the moment, the following special module is available for research.

 

Scavenger Drones special module

Picking up wreckages of destroyed ships, the engineer produces drones, attacking the enemy and repairing the ship. When activated, one of the drones rushes to its target. With the blast, the missile damages the enemies and restores hulls of nearby allies.

Trading system has received a significant upgrade. Now all pilots have a bulletin board for purchase and sale of in-game items. In the updated trading window, players can:

  • Place an ad for the sale of an item. To do this, you need to select the product from the list in the trade window and press the ‘ Publish ’ button . After that, the advertisement placement window will open.It displays the item for sale and there is a field where you can specify the price for the item.
  • View sale ads.To do this, just select the item you need in the trade window and click the ‘ Adverts ’ button .You will see a list of players and their prices for the item.

 

Interface

Hangar interface has been substantially redesigned. The updated version is simpler and more intuitive, and also has a modern and aesthetic approach to the design and style of the game.

  • The top part of the screen is now occupied by the resource panel, the menu tabs, and the ‘Battle’ button.
  • The button for changing the appearance and the notification list is in the lower right corner of the screen
  • In the upper right corner of the screen are the player's portrait, the corporate window buttons, messages and friends list, polls and voting windows
  • A Premium license is now available for purchase in the ‘Store’ window

 

Public Test Server

Testing will be carried out on Star Conflict public test server. Public test server is completely independent from live game servers where updates are uploaded for mass testing. Instructions how to connect to the public test server are located here.

Matchmaking on the server will work as follows:

  • PvP queue for ranks 5-6.
  • PvP queue for ranks 7-8.
  • A shared queue for Co-op mode.

 

Attention, pilots! The opinion of the Star Conflict gaming community about the new engineering frigate Waz'Got is very important for us. We will be happy to see your comments in the Discussion of the ship's testing.

 

Mass Testing Schedule

Public Test server is running for a limited time. The server is only meant for testing updates scheduled for live deployment.

Friday: 15:00 UTC - 19:00 UTC
Saturday: 15:00 UTC - 19:00 UTC
Sunday: 15:00 UTC - 19:00 UTC

 

Attention! Public test server accounts will get a bonus, which will help in testing. To do this, you need to sync accounts no later than 15:00 UTC. A container with the necessary resources can be picked up in the store window.
