Answers to common questions that have come up during Firestrike‘s second special event:
What advantage do I get from unlocking the special reward units?
The reward units have a unique “Superior (1.3x)” damage bonus that gives them +30% DPS against the unit type they counter. Plus, they also get an “Excellent (1.15x)” +15% DPS bonus against buildings, which regular units do not have.
These bonuses are shown in the four “Damage vs.” icons underneath the unit on the Train and Research menus. Hover your mouse over each icon to see the exact damage bonus.
Aside from these bonuses, reward units have the same base HP and DPS as regular units that unlock at the corresponding TOC level. Check the Research and Event Prizes menus – the unit descriptions there always mention which TOC level(s) a unit is designed for.
I’m at TOC level 5/6/7/8 and this event is way too hard!
Are you fighting the event at the right level? Vengeance has three difficulty levels: Bronze (TOC L4), Silver (TOC L7), and Gold (TOC L10+). Harding’s bases should be about the same difficulty as an ordinary Single Player base of the same TOC level. So a TOC Level 5 player will have an easy time fighting Bronze, a difficult time fighting Silver, and will probably not be able to complete Gold this week.
How can I get all the event rewards? I can’t fight these L10 Gold bases!
Don’t worry! The reward items from this event will still be in the Prizes Store during future special event weeks, available for similar Prize Tokens. You’ll be stronger then, and you will have more chances to get the rewards you missed this week.
We designed Firestrike special events with enemies and rewards for all different levels of players. We don’t expect that anyone will be able to gather ALL the rewards in a single event, especially the ones far beyond your current level. Win what you can this week, and stay tuned for the next event!
Why are my Supply and Fuel Yards collecting resources slower than before?
(Not related to the special event, but this has come up often): Check for a “low power” status message in your base. When your Generators are off-line, or not upgraded enough to provide full power for all systems, this slows down resource collection at Yards (and also the rate of fire of your turret weapons). This is indicated by an on-screen message like “Low Power – Buildings operating at 66%”.
For planning purposes, you can check the current and future power requirements of each building on its Upgrade menu. The power output of Generators is designed to tightly match the power draw of other buildings at each TOC level. To power a fully-upgraded base at any given TOC level, you will need to build and upgrade Generators to the maximum allowed at that TOC level.
