Season Thirteen: Escalation was released on April 25th, 2017 on PC and June 6th, 2017 for Console. It continues the Lukari Storyline with the new episode Mirrors and Smoke. Additionally, it includes a Reputation centered around a new Competitive PvE/PvP gamemode, called War Games. Another feature of this Season is a large-scale Balancing effort.

Season Thirteen[edit | edit source]

War Games[edit | edit source]

Following the success of the Arena of Sompek training initiative, the Alliance has set up further exercises to prepare its captains for the oncoming challenges that await them. These new War Game scenarios will pit teams of captains against each other in trials of speed, strength, and ingenuity.

  • Core Assault is a space-based 5v5 scenario where both teams must solve a series of puzzles to reach the center of the Adelphous System space station. The first team to destroy the opposing Core Regulator will be the victors of the match.
  • Twin Tribulations is a space-based 5v5 Gauntlet-class War Game Scenario. In a Gauntlet-class Scenario, Captains will not be engaging in direct battle with the opposite team, but racing against them to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
  • Binary Circuit is a ground-based 5v5 Gauntlet-class War Game Scenario. In a Gauntlet-class Scenario, Captains will not be engaging in direct battle with the opposite team, but racing against them to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.

Systems[edit | edit source]

  • Balancing:
    • In an effort to make a more fun experience, Season 13 brings a large-scale Rebalancing for Space Combat.
  • Player Potential System
    • To ensure lower-end players aren't teamed with high-end players, a Player Potential matchmaking system is being introduced to PvP content. It will scale off several things, such as gear, specializations, and previous PvP queue performance.
