Star Conflict 1.4.10: Halloween in Space

Every year in late October according to terrestrial calendar a wave of anomalous energy passes through the Universe. Following an old Earth tradition this time is called ‘Halloween’. Fanatics and cultists worshiping the Signal believe that on ‘Halloween’ souls of the dead penetrate into our world.
 

 
Earlier, scientists explained the phenomenon by the fact that it was at this time that the Signal reached its peak. Every year, numerous laboratories conduct risky Signal energy domestication experiments. Several years ago, one of such Jericho projects ended in a disaster. Since then, all objects with the active signal have been given the codename W.I.T.Ch.
 
‘W.I.T.Ch. Hunt’ protocol is coming into effect. Mercenaries will receive special rewards for destroying W.I.T.Ch!
 

Protocol ‘W.I.T.Ch. Hunt’!

UMC has recovered special, previously discontinued weapons in its warehouses. This is the only weapon guaranteed to protect mercenaries from the Infected. Using missiles ‘MEM Inquisitor’ you have to destroy the ships of those mercenaries that are suspected of carrying the alien infection.There are infected among all combat roles — you need to destroy at least one infected of each role.
The best mercenaries will receive a special achievement and a special title!
 

Special missions from Miranda Del Arte


 
Signal's Peak’ is coming — it's a dark time when the spirits of the dead come to take what they're owed by the living! Miranda Del Arte offers mercenaries new special assignments! Receive monocrystals and Galactic Standards as rewards for completed tasks!
 

Scary sounds!

Some pilots reported hearing very frightening sounds  and demonic laughter when docking with the station. Perhaps it has something to do with the operation W.I.T.Ch. We were able to intercept and record one of these transmissions:

‘Detonation’ mode


Centre is receiving disturbing reports about special bombs in PvP-mode ‘Detonation’ looking extremely suspicious! We invite all pilots to be careful in these troubled days.
 

Strange faces

Members of UMC staff as well as intelligence agencies of various races and corporations actively working with the mercenaries, have been looking very strange and suspicious the last few days. Maybe it has something to do with the Signal's peak. But these may also be just costumes for the holiday.
