New this week in Firestrike:
Resource-giving Quarries are now available on the Multiplayer Map, and can be located using the “Find Target…” button. Conquer a Quarry to receive Supply, Fuel, or Hardware from the Yards within.
Quarries are available in three sizes: III, VII, and XI, corresponding to the power of TOC Levels 3, 7, and 11 respectively. Players may attack any Quarry whose size is within +/- 3 levels of their own TOC level.
Other than the quarry-size mechanics just mentioned, rules for Quarries are the same in Firestrike as they are in our other games. For example, the Yards inside of Quarries provide less resources than a regular home-base Yard, so the resource flow from owning one entire Quarry is roughly equal to one extra in-base Yard.
New and exclusive to Firestrike: Clan Logistics Quarries provide Clan-wide bonuses instead of resources.
Logistics Quarries are identified by a special green icon on the regional map.
Owning a Logistics Quarry provides Clan-wide bonuses. Currently, this takes the form of a unit production and repair speed bonus, but we plan to offer more bonuses in the future.
Clan-wide bonuses are refreshed hourly. At the top of the hour, all Clanmates in the same map of the quarry owner receive one hour of bonus. This continues as long as the Clan holds on to the quarry. Mouse over the bonus icon to see which quarries are contributing to your bonus stats.
In an exclusive first for Battlehouse games, Clan Logistics Centers can be upgraded inside the Quarry, to provide greater Clan bonuses and stronger security teams.
Full stats for the available upgrades can be viewed here: Clan Logistics Center | Firestrike Field Manual
Like other quarries, Clan Logistics bases have a limited lifetime and will eventually expire and disappear.
Look forward to more new and exciting Multiplayer Map content in the future!
