Interserver war game rules

Each war opposes two servers, one as blue team, the other as red team. A war lasts 30min.

Fronts
The war takes place on one or several different fronts depending on the number of players on each side. A front should host a 15vs15 battle.

During the war, one can jump from one front to another in order to reinforce a losing battle.

Map
http://www.sublinet.com/en/upload/files/3_isw_map_small.jpg

The main gameplay on a front is inspired by the "Dominion" mode of League of Legends:

- There are two bases on opposite sides of the map. Players spawn at their base.
- There are 5 strategic locations on the map. The team holding a majority of those locations will earn points every second, the amount of points depending on how important their lead is. When the game starts, all locations are neutral.

Capturing a location:
- Only neutral locations can be captured.
- One captures a location by "filling" it with resources.
- The first team to add a resource to a neutral location will lock it (but not capture it). Once the location is full of resources, it will be considered captured and start earning points for it's team.
- When a location is captured by a team, it will heal nearby members of that team.

Losing/Attacking a location:
- When enemies hit the location it will lose resources. The location is lost when it's empty.
- When a location is lost, it will be neutral again.

Resource generators:
- There are 3 resources generators, in a vertical line in the center of the map.
- Each generator spawns packs of resources every few moments.

Death:
- Dead people will have to wait 30s to respawn, one can skip the waiting time by using stars.

Roles:
- Raiders and tanks are the main fighting force of a team.
- Supports are very strategic as there will be little or no means of healing other that support ships and allied locations.
- Traders are very efficient for capturing locations as they are able to make a lot less trips to fill them up.

Winning the war
On each front, the leading team will earn points every second for it's server depending on the number of captured locations.

However, these points can be cancelled by the opposing team's earned points. Example:

- Front A: Blue team leads on this front, Blue +1pts/s vs Red +0pts/s
- Front B: Red team leads on this front, Blue +0pts/s vs Red +1pts/s
- Front C: Red team leads on this front, Blue +0pts/s vs Red +2pts/s
- Total for all fronts: Blue +1pts/s vs Red +3pts/s
Result: Red team is currently leading the war, Blue +0pts/s vs Red +2pts/s

Therefore, leading on a front does not mean you will win the war! Make sure your allies are not in trouble on other fronts. Click on the "More" button on the right side to view fronts and jump to reinforce losing battles.

The points earned by each front will be added to a global counter for each team. The first server to reach 1000 points will win the round.

At the end of each round, the points and all fronts are reset.

At the end of the war, the server that won the most rounds will be victorious!

How does the PvP kit work?

It gives you a level 0 PvP shield everytime you respawn, preventing all players from attacking you as long as your shield is not altered.

If you attack another player, a drone or a planet or if you heal another player in combat, the PvP protection will be disabled and your shield will be set at the victim's level.

Shield will be reset after death.

How are earned/lost points calculated after a fight in the arena?

The points earned or lost depend on the difference in points between the two opponents.

If a player with a lot of arena points beats a player with few points, he will earn little if not no points at all (if the difference is greater than 100 points).

If a player with few arena points beats a player with many points, we will earn a lot of points.

Therefore, points earned or lost do not depend on leagues or levels! A player in a lower league or with a lower level could have a lot more arena points than you. Furthermore, if a player with a lot less points defeats you, you will lose many points.

Try to always challenge players with higher arena points than yourself to be in a low risk, high reward situation.
Improve

How does one access the higher leagues?

Moving up or down in the league system depends on your arena points at the end of a season (2 weeks).

At the end of each season, all players are ranking depending on their arena points and their new league depends on their ranking.

Try to always be first of your league and get as many points as you can to move up as fast as possible.
Improve

How many leagues are there?

There are 4 different leagues:
- Master (gold medal with wings): 20 best players on the server
- Gold: all players from 21st to 100th, in 4 seperate leagues
- Silver: all players from 101th to 420th in 16 seperate leagues
- Bronze: all players from 421th to the last in an infinity of seperate leagues

If a player with a lot of PvP points beats a player with few points, he will earn little if not no points at all.

If a player with few PvP points beats a player with many points, he will earn a lot of points.

How are interserver wars balanced?

All ships have level 50 characteristics.

Furthermore, when a player joins a war, all his equipment is upgraded to the maximum level (for the premium ships) or the level just below.

How does the interserver war queue work?

The queue opens 15min before the war begins.

Moving up the queue
When you enter the queue, you are placed at the end of the queue. You can use stars to move up the queue. Your new position will then depend on whether other users also moved up or not. For example, if 2 people already moved up the queue once, your new position will be 3rd. If you move up again, you will be 1st.

Fronts
When the war stars, the first front is opened and the first 15 players on each side will start playing. New fronts will open progressively as long as there are enough players on each side.

In order to be able to reinforce a server if a user leaves the war, the queue will always keep at least 5 players in the queue on both sides. This means that a new front will only open if both sides have at least 20 players in the queue (15 + 5).

Why am I stuck in the queue?
- The war might not have started yet
- There might not be enough users in the queue on the other server.
- New fronts are not opened in the last few minutes of a war

I never got to play the war. What about the stars I spent on moving up the queue?
Users who never joined the war and spent stars moving up the queue will be refunded.

However, leaving the queue before the end of the war will not refund the stars used for moving up the queue.
