The Sickle Syndicate is at it again! Satellite imagery indicates they've begun aggressive expansion all over the map. While intel is still hazy, it seems they've been hard at work on some sort of massive aircraft. We'll have to be prepared to stop them before we're in serious danger. Can we count on you, Commander?
  — Event Announcement #1 

I have new intel! Former leader Sergey Kalashnikov was overthrown by his power-hungry daughter, Sasha. She's attempting worldwide Syndicate supremacy through the air. She was instrumental in developing the Kondor - a colossal bomber capable of unspeakable damage. Operation: Red Sky begins August 23 - are your ready?
  — Event Announcement #2 

Sasha Kalashnikov is out for blood! Prepare your troops, Commander. Get ready to attack all Sickle Syndicate bases in sight. But be prepared, they will be ready for war! Recent intel shows not only countless troops but also aircraft defenders that will meet you on these bases. Grab your gun, Commander, Operation: Red Sky begins tomorrow.
  — Event Announcement #3 

It's time to strike, Commander. It's your mission to destroy as many Syndicate bases as possible. Remember when you attack these bases the Sickle Syndicate will be fighting back from the air and the ground. Wipe Kalashnikov's army off the map and the Kondor will be yours. Best of luck!
  — Event Announcement #4 - Start 




The Sickle Syndicate is developing a colossal bomber capable of unspeakable damage. Further Sickle Syndicatge Airfield expansion would put this aircraft within striking distance of the entire World Map. Will you join the fight on August 23?
  — Event Email Announcement #1 

Recent intel shows countless waves of Sickle Syndicate troops and Aircraft resistance preparing for battle. Let's lock and load. Operation: Red Sky begins tomorrow.
  — Event Email Announcement #2 

You've proven you're a force on the battlefield, Commander. It's unfortunate I have to crush you. My father was weak for being defeated, but I will still avenge him.
  — Periodic Message #? 

I had expected some amount of resistance, but what I've seen so far is pathetic. Our pilots love target practice, so if you persist in this foolishness there will be nothing left of you but scrap.
  — Periodic Message #? 

Your attacks are a mere annoyance. You'll never outlast our expert pilots. They can fly circles around anything you throw at them and will reduce your army to smoldering rubble.
  — Periodic Message #3 - 1,400 xp mark 

The Sickle Syndicate cannot be stopped! Say your prayers, Commander. Our Air Force is the greatest military power the world has ever known. You will soon feel the crushing power of our wrath.
  — Periodic Message #4 - 2,000 xp mark 

In previous events you get points for fully destroying a base, this had 3 problems
  1. Someone could come in and ninja the points after you end your first attack
  2. People could take out defenses and leave the base for a low level player to clean up, giving low level players a weapon that is too powerful for their level, messing with the balance of the game
  3. If you did a lot of damage but ran out of time or units you lost out on the points
So in this event we wised up and now award points on damage done to the base and the units in it, giving more points for defenses and units and less points for other buildings. It is possible for you to take out all defenses and leave the buildings for a friend but you will get the majority of the points available and they will get relativity very little. This also means that if you go in and do a lot of damage then run out of time or someone ninjas you then you have not lost out completely.
