Last Day of the Kill Point Tournaments!

Less than 24 hours to go before the top Clans of Thunder Run and Days of Valor claim their places in the Kill Point Tournaments!

Winners will be determined by leaderboard standings at 1700 GMT tomorrow, April 6.

Reminders:

  • If you plan to change Clans before the tournament ends, you may do so, but don’t wait until the very last minute. Please join your final tournament Clan at least one hour before the tournament ends (1600 GMT). This will ensure that points are credited to the proper Clans.
  • For similar reasons, if you plan to change Clans after the tournament, please stay in your tournament Clan for at least one hour after the tournament ends (1800 GMT).

Good luck, Commanders!

Firestrike Prize Token Leaderboard

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend, and the ongoing special event in Firestrike!

We received feedback that the in-game “Tokens” leaderboard should differentiate between various types of Prize Tokens. It’s harder to earn an Emerald token than a Bronze token, so logically they should not be counted the same for leaderboard purposes.

We agree, and the next event after Insider will feature separate leaderboards for each token type.

There wasn’t time to deploy this feature for this event week, but in case you’re curious, here are the current standings (as of 22:30 GMT Apr 1). We’ll have a final update at the end of the event.

Emerald Tokens

Player Emerald Tokens Looted
bot1 L13 12,655

* By the way, to clear up any confusion, these leaderboards are not related to the Clan-based “Kill Point Tournaments” happening in other games (TR and DoV) this week. The current Firestrike event is not a Clan-based tournament, although you can receive Prize Token loot bonuses from your clanmates if they control Clan Logistics quarries.

Thunder Run: Mid-Season PvP Updates & Camp Kill Point Tournament

Important updates for PvP in Thunder Run are here, along with an exciting new in-game tournament starting TODAY, March 30th:

PvP Level Limit Change

Starting today, the level at which players become attackable by any higher-level player, also known as the “shark tank” level, is raised from Level 33 to Level 36.

This change is intended to give newer players a little bit more time to catch up to our Level 39+ veterans.

Note: this change affects Thunder Run only, not DoV, where the “shark tank” remains at Level 30 for now.

Camp Kill Point Tournament

To celebrate the “shark tank” level restriction changes, the week of March 30 – April 6 will feature a Camp Kill Point Tournament, wherein Clans will compete to destroy more of Gashi’s bases on the Multiplayer Map to win Gold prizes – and bragging rights! Be one of the top clans to win between 3,000-10,000 gold divided evenly among the top 10 members of your clan. Tournament ends on April 6th, 2017, at which point winners will be announced, and the next exciting PvP update will go live…

Map Changes: New Regions In, Old Regions Out

As of April 6, we’ll be opening two new Thunder Run regions with anti-alt rules: Maps 606 and 607.

At the same time, the following old regions will be retired: Maps 205, 217, 218, and 226.

Get out there and start raking in those Gashi Camp Kill Points! Good hunting, Commanders!

Days of Valor Kill Point Tournament

New in-game tournament starting today in Days of Valor:

Camp Kill Point Tournament

The week of March 30 – April 6 will feature a Camp Kill Point Tournament, wherein Clans will compete to destroy more of Ludwig’s bases on the Multiplayer Map to win Gold prizes – and bragging rights! Be one of the top clans to win between 3,000-10,000 gold divided evenly among the top 10 members of your clan. Tournament ends on April 6th, 2017, at which point winners will be announced.

Get out there and start raking in those Ludwig Camp Kill Points! Good hunting, Commanders!

Firestrike: Insider Special Event

INSIDER

Welcome to the third special event in Firestrike!

Rogue CIA Agent Springer returns to Gundar in a one-week scramble to defeat Single-Player and Multiplayer Map bases before time runs out.

Each of Springer’s special-event bases gives Prize Tokens which can be redeemed in the Store for exclusive rare items. Prize Tokens will only be available until the end of the event, April 6!

New Units

This event brings three new special units to Firestrike. All three are “role breakers” that have different offensive strengths than the normal ones for their infantry/armor/aircraft class. Click the individual links below for full stats on each unit:

In addition, all prizes from earlier event weeks have returned and can be obtained for the same Prize Token types as before.

New Clan Logistics Bonus

Starting this week, Clan Logistics Centers now give a Prize Token Loot Bonus to all Clanmates in the map.

For example, by owning 2x Size XI and 3x Size VII Logistics Centers, with upgrades applied, all Clanmates will earn 10.5% more Prize Tokens for each victory. This means a base that would normally give 100 Prize Tokens now gives 111 Prize Tokens, letting your whole Clan earn event rewards in less time!

New Special Event Levels

The Insider event is available at four difficulty levels: Bronze (TOC L4), Silver (TOC L7), Gold (TOC L10), and Emerald (TOC L13).

Players may attack any event base within +/- 3 levels of their own TOC level.

Regardless of TOC level, Senior Clanmates can help boost their lower-level allies by conquering and holding Clan Logistics Quarries to raise the Clan-wide Prize Token bonus.

Note: The +/- 3 level restriction is a change from earlier events. Previously, the lack of clarity about the intended difficulty of each event level caused some confusion, so we added this level-band restriction to focus players on the event content appropriate for their level.

Event Tips

Springer has a preference for helicopters and Rocket Turrets, both of which are strong against armor but weak against infantry. You’ll get better combat results if you bring infantry to this event.

During the Single-Player sequence, the 8th and final base gives many more Prize Tokens than earlier bases.

You can see the exact Prize Token reward amounts for upcoming Single-Player bases on the “progress” screen after conquering each base.

For veterans of Thunder Run and Days of Valor, please note the following differences in the Vengeance event system:

  • The Single-Player portion of the event can be played more than once. After the final stage is defeated, it resets back to the first stage, and can be fought again for more Prize Tokens.
  • Prize Token amounts are “back-loaded” – the final stage of the Single-Player event gives a very large amount of Tokens relative to the others. This rewards players for fighting through all the levels.

We’re eager to hear your feedback – please join the discussion in Clan HQ!

Bonus ONP

  • Alpha Force: Level 2 Academy, Airfield, Barracks leaders
  • Bravo Force: Level 2 and Level 3 Turret Emplacement leaders
  • Charlie Force: Level 2 Supply Yard leaders
  • Delta Force: Level 3 Turret Emplacement leaders

Technical Updates

  • Players are no longer allowed to make attacks against battalions and quarries controlled by their own alt accounts.
  • The “Post Screenshot” button is fixed now. It was temporarily broken earlier this week due to a Facebook bug.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Firestrike: Quarries, Clan Logistics, and More

New this week in Firestrike:

Quarries

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.

Clan Logistics

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!


Field Manual Updates

  • New “Power Tier” row shows what TOC Level each upgrade is for
  • New “# Buildable” row shows how many of each building can be constructed in your base
  • Buildings only available in Quarries are now listed, including Clan Logistics bonuses

Check it out here: Firestrike Field Manual


Turret Emplacement Update

  • TOC Level 10+ now allows 9 Turret Emplacements, and TOC Level 13+ now allows 10 Turret Emplacements

Full stats for the emplacement are available here: Turret Emplacement | Firestrike Field Manual
