    ...CHOOCHOO the update is coming TOMORROW!

    What’s New
    Midfight Movies - Abandoned multiplex deep down underground. But who left the lights on?
    Watch the new map teaser here!

    “We tried to build a nice ‘fast-action-map’ with a spacious feeling. Nothing in this map is far-far-away, except the surface of the earth. Visually we pushed to up the ante a bit and bring a fresh new environment with more colourful lights and overall eye-candy! As usual, we tried to scatter around some easter-eggs and messages for battlers to discover. The Kimmy’s Kiosk menu is interesting in particular. Gear up, get your tickets and enjoy the show!”
    - Yours truly FURIOSA! & DMG Don -
    The map will be introduced right away to the normal rotation with a minimum infamy of 350.

    Events!
    Ever felt the Bay needs more variation? Wait no more! Events are here! Ever changing new event game modes will hit the Bay starting with 5v5 Team Deathmatch! In special events, you don’t have to worry about your infamy. Matchmaking will use your overall power level, so feel free to try out ships and items that you haven’t mastered. This is about having fun, right?

    • Quick overview of our first event: 5v5 Team Deathmatch
      Tired of dying and to just watch the fun from beyond the grave? In Team Deathmatch you simply respawn and you’re back to battle in no time! First team to sink 10 ships wins! After all, revenge is sweet ;) In every event you can earn unique event rewards.
    You can battle right away in an event by selecting the BATTLE button:

    [​IMG]
    When you click the battle button you get to choose between Event mode, Normal ranked play and Custom battles.
    Every event will have changing rewards for you to “grind” towards. Events will change over time with different game modes, rewards and event mechanics!
    For example, to play in our first event, Team Deathmatch, you will be needing tickets, which you gain over time. Everyone starts off with 5 tickets!

    Special and unique event perks - all the way up to legendary!
    From the events you will win special event perks that have new and unique combinations of boosts. For example, a torpedo damage perk that can also set your target on fire! Oh, and did we already mention you can even get them as legendary? We are aware though that some may be so powerful that you can only fit one at a time. ;)

    New perks in game!

    It is a limited time event that is going to rotate through different game types. 5v5, capture the flag, etc... who knows what they will come up with. A genius must have given this idea.

    There will still be matchmaking in the Event battles, so lower-geared players won't simply be chum for the sharks.

    You need tickets for the events. I can only imagine how much that will cost for f2p players .

    Those 5vs5 events, are random players from everywhere or from your own guild?

    We can see it says that tickets will get refreshed, F2P players like us we have to live with it, those who can spend can spend on anything

    Random from everywhere probably. It is not saying 5-person fleets... just that it is a respawn-enabled mode.

    Great update,

    Only thing I might see having an issue is the new perks making those items OP, firebomb is already extremely easy to use, over powered weapon adding extra 8% damage is crazy.
