Detailed Play Information

Defense Waves

  • Successful Defense- The Player's Base is considered successfully defended when all attacking Rogue Units have been eliminated while preventing the Player's Command Center from being destroyed.
  • Repeatable Waves - The Player must repeat any stage in which the Command Center is destroyed in order to move on to the next Wave.
  • Surrender - The Player may surrender a defense Wave at any time during the Rogue Attack. After which the Player may then Repair and Adjust the Base Defenses and restart that Wave from the beginning.

     minumum level of Silo the Player may click the 'Find' button and be taken to the closest one located on the World Map.
  • Verkraft Silo Level - Silo's are available in Levels 5,10,15, 20, 25, 30, 35, etc, with each level increasing the amount of XP the player receives for its completion. The player must attack a minimum Silo Level equal to the wave they are currently on (Wave 15 for instance requires at least a Silo Level 15) However, the Player may choose to attack any of the higher Silo Levels that are currently on the Map in
    Verkraft silo&#039;s level is too low
    place of the required minimum Level in order to gain more XP for that wave.

  • Unlimited Time - There is NO time limit for completing a Silo Wave.
  • Verkraft Silo Wave Frequency - Occur every 5 Waves - Players are required to attack a Silo every 5th wave.

Fortress Waves ( Verkraft Fortress Waves )
  • Verkraft Fortress - For this Event, the Fortresses are called Verkraft Fortress.
  • Verkraft Fortress Location - Each Player will have a Verkraft Fortress attached to their Base that only they may attack. The Verkraft Fortress will loose its Protection when the player reaches a Verkraft Fortress Wave.
  • Storm Fortress Layout - Each Verkraft Fortress Wave will be a different Layout each progressively getting harder.
  • Single Attack Direction - Players may surround a Verkraft Fortress with Platoons to use during the attack, however, regardless of the Platoon's position all Units will enter the Attack from the South East.
  • 70 Minute Time Limit - Players must completely destroy all Buildings and Turrets in the Verkraft Fortress in 70 minutes to complete Wave. Failure to do so will in the allotted time will cause the Verkraft Fortress to completely RESET back to full Health. This Timer is shown in the base's info box on the World Map. The Timer Starts with your first attack on the Verkraft Fortress. Once the Verkraft Fortress has Reset the Player may make another attempt at completing the Wave.
  • Unlimited Attacks - The Player may stop and start an attack on a Storm Fortress as many time as they find necessary to complete the wave as long as they still have time on the Verkraft Fortress Clock.
  • Verkraft Fortresses Occur every 10 Waves - The Player must complete a Verkraft Fortress every 10th Wave (Starting Wave 7).
  • Bonus XP Targets : Verkraft Arms Depot - Verkraft Fortress Waves give the Player a chance to earn Bonus XP by destroying the Bonus XP Targets identified with Bonus Icons above them. However, they are only available for the first 5 minutes of the attack (Timer on screen) at which time any undestroyed bonuses will expire. The Wave XP and any Bonus XP are added together and paid out when the Verkraft Fortress is fully destroyed. If the Verkraft Fortress is RESET, so are the Bonuses.
