Event Overview


Greetings Captains!

This is our chance! Attack Warzones while your enemies clash, but beware - it's every Captian for himself! Succeed and you'll earn the new Berserker Hull. Equipped with Chaos Mortars, the Berserker gains power through damage, overloading its unstable core and laying waste to all opposition.

The Reavers have united under the banner of the ruthless ringleader, Grimshine! Under her rule the Reavers have launched a campaign of violence against any that would stand in their way. Having drawn the ire of Supreme Commander Vassago, after repeated attacks against Draconian Platforms and bases, the Draconian Armada has initiated a counter attack to crush this irradiated threat. Are you ready to get caught in the Riptide?

Riptide will begin April 17th at 9AM PST and will run until April 23rd.

Primary Mission Objective

Players will be targeting sets of Warzone Targets to earn Points. Warzones will feature ships from the Draconian Empire and the Reaver Faction. Captains will be faced with the challenge of avoiding fire as the Draconians and Reavers clash in combat and are tasked with eliminating all forces present in the target.
There are three types of Warzone Targets. The Draconian Assault, the Reaver Swarm, and the Clash! type target.

  • Draconian Assault Targets will feature heavy Draconian presence as the might of the Draconian Empire is brought to bear on the Reavers.
  • Reaver Swarm targets feature a host of Reavers eliminating any who stand in their Warpath.
  • Clash! Type targets will feature capital ships present from both the Reaver and Draconian fleets.

  • Three enemy sets (A, B, C) have been targeted for destruction.
  • Clearing all targets in a specific set will grant a set bonus. This bonus can be redeemed multiple times. As this is a hullstore style event, the cap on bonus completions has been removed.
  • Set A = 61 - 65 Highest level targets
  • Set B = 41 - 45 Medium level targets
  • Set C = 21 - 25 Lowest level targets

Out of the chaos, a leader has emerged. The once-fractured Reavers have united under Grimshine, a charismatic ringleader who has set her sights on the destruction of the Draconian Empire. With the Reavers and Dracs at war, this could be our chance to strike! Can we count on you, Captain?
  — Captain Harlock 

After numerous radiation attacks on Drac Bases, the Reavers have become the sole focus of Commander Vassago's scorn. With the Draconian Empire distracted by the Reaver occupation, the Forsaken Council has declared this the opportune time to launch an assault against both enemies. Will you join the cause, Captain?
  — Captain Harlock 

This is our chance! Attack Warzones while your enemies clash, but beware - it's every Captain for himself! Succeed and you'll earn the new Berserker Hull. Equipped with Chaos Mortars, the Berserker gains power through damage, overloading its unstable core and laying waste to all opposition. Outfit your fleets, Captain - Riptide begins in less than 24 hours!
