War Commander Bases | Special Event
War Commander Special Event will periodically run where Players must complete progressively harder Waves that may consist of the Player Attacking Rogue Event War Commander Bases, Defending their own War Commander Base from Rogue Attacks or a combination of both.
As the Player progresses through the Waves they are awarded Event Experience Point (eXP) which they may use to Unlock Special Event Units which are not otherwise available. The Player attempts to complete as many waves as they can in the time allotted. The War Commander Event ends for a player when either time runs out or they reach a wave they can not complete.
Each Special Event has its own narrative and may vary in Rules, Goals and/or Specific Tasks.
Currently, a Special War Commander Event is being held once a month. Each Event runs for 7 days at the end of the month.
Although there may be some content variations, such as the addition of Fortresses or Spires, to date all Special Events have followed one of four basic formats.
The Following is a list of the formats, each with an example of an Event that operated under that format :
War Commander DEFENSE - The Player Defends their Base from waves of Rogue Attacks.
War Commander ATTACK - The Player Attacks a Rogue Event Base to complete each wave.
SEIZE - The Player receives eXP for the Seizing of Rogue or Player's Resource Deposit.
HYBRID - The Player must both Attack Rogue Event Bases and Defend their own Base from Rogue Attacks
The Special Events are open to the vast majority of War Commander Players but not all. In order to participate in the Special Events the Player must meet the following criteria :
The Player must be a Minimum Level 10.
The Player must have a Minimum Level 3 Command Center.
Must Have completed the "Spoils of War".
War Commander Monthly Event Units (Prizes)
Each Event typically introduces anywhere from 1 to 6 new content.
For more information on the Special Event Units ( Prizes) please see: Event Shop.
Each Special Event has its own theme revolving around one of the Rogue Factions.
The Event Shop is open at the start of a Special Event and for an additional 48 hours after each event.
