What are Raid Battles?

Alliance Raid Battles are a new alliance war mode where an entire alliance works together to overcome multiple strong raid bases to collect Raid Points and unlock rewards. Read on for an in-depth view of what Raid Battles are and how they work.


Event Mechanics

Raid Bases are accessed through the Raid event menu. Selecting an available Raid Base starts an attack against that base. Raid Bases can be damaged or destroyed to score Raid Points that will unlock rewards. Raid Bases reward Experience Points per building destroyed but do not reward Energon or Alloy.

Only 1 Alliance member can attack a Raid Base at a time. Once a base is selected, it is locked to that player, who then has 2 minutes to select the squad they want to bring into battle, and overall 10 minutes to finish the fight. The timers are in place so that raid bases are not locked out for too long, but at the same time to give players who disconnect a chance to get back into the game and finish their battle.

Usually, a certain amount of cells are given at the start of an event and they replenish over time. During weekend events it is also possible to fight in event battles to gather more Energy Cells.

Raid Bases

Raid bases are not just any normal base - they are high powered, supercharged and rule-defying beasts with special buildings you will not have seen the likes of which before!

There are twenty different raid bases with increasing difficulty that can show up in the events, but don’t have to. The below table lists them all in order. Please note that these values can change based on the type of event active. The number in the base names indicate how strong the base is.

Base Total Raid Points
Praxus-1 5,000
Tyrest-2 6,000
Polyhex-3 7,000
Kaon-3 7,000
Protihex-4 10,000
Altihex-4 10,000
Uraya-5 15,000
Iacon-5 15,000
Kalis-6 25,000
Helex-6 25,000
Iacon-6 25,000
Protihex-7 40,000
Altihex-7 40,000
Tyrest-7 40,000
Helex-8 80,000
Kaon-8 80,000
Kalis-8 80,000
Praxus-9 120,000
Uraya-9 120,000
Polyhex-10 250,000

Buildings

Most buildings will have a largely increased damage output and health pool. On many of them, you will notice a number next to their health bar, which indicates stacks of health bars! You will have to burn through all the stacks before a building is finally destroyed.

In addition, there are four new types of defense buildings that you will only see in raid bases with new and very powerful abilities:


Luxon.jpg Luxon Destabilizer - Fires a searing beam that deals more damage the longer it hits a target. Targets ground bots only.

railgun.jpg Railgun - Deals heavy damage to all targets in a line. Does not target flying bots.

acid_launcher.jpg Acid Launcher - Fires an explosive shell that covers enemies in acid, slowing them and dealing damage over 5 seconds. Does not target flying bots.

thunderTower.jpg Thunder Tower - Blasts nearby bots with electricity, dealing massive damage and stunning them for 3 seconds. Immune to EMP effects! Does not target flying bots.

Event types

For this weekend’s event, we will be launching the Raid Battles where you can win Shanix Coins and other rewards. Attempts are not limited: You can attack normal Event Battle Zones to get Energy Cells and use it to attack as many Raid Bases as you want.

At a later point, the Raid Battles will find another place as a mid-week event, which will take place every Tuesday at 10:00 AM UTC to Thursday 10:00 AM UTC. Stay tuned for more details for the midweek Raid events.

In this mid-week mode, each alliance member will have limited attempts to damage Raid Bases as much as possible and you will get up to 1,000 Shanix Coins!

FAQ

Q: How can you attack Raid Bases?
A: Energy cells are required to attack bases. You will be granted some Energy cells at the start of the event and Energy cells generate automatically over time. If you run out of Energy cells, you can obtain more by doing normal battles.

Q: Can more than one player attack the same base at the same time?
A: No, only one player can attack a base at a time and bases under attack will be locked down. Any destruction done to the base will be carried over and you will be able to see how much damage was dealt by certain members per base.

Q: How many attacks we can attempt?
A: Depends on the setting of the event,

Q: Can combiners attack the Raid Base?
A: Yes, and you should definitely take advantage of their destructive force.

Q: Do I need Fuel cells to participate on Alliance Raid Battle?
A: You will need Energy cells to attack Raid Battle bases which you can earn by winning in normal event battle zones.

Q: Is there an Energy Cell cap?
A: The Energy cells cap for this weekend’s event is 500 but this value might change for midweek Raid Battles. So once your Energy cell balance reaches to a cap, you won’t be able to obtain more by winning in event battle zones.

Q: What will happen if I leave my alliance during the Alliance Raid Battles?
A: Raid Battle weekend events behave exactly like Alliance Totalisers. If you leave your alliance, you will not be able to participate in raid battles anymore. Joining other alliances gives you access to their raid bases and you can help them, but if you already unlocked a reward from the totaliser in your previous alliance, you will not receive it a second time.

Q: Will I win the exclusive prizes from the Alliance Raid Battles?
A: Shanix Coin is a prize exclusive only to Raid Battles.

Q: Will I gain the XP and medal from the Alliance Raid?
A: You will gain a small amount of XP by destroying Raid bases but you won’t gain any medals.

Q: Do alliance members who don't participate in Raid Battles still get Raid rewards?
A: Yes. It works the same way as a normal totalizer event.

Q: Will there be bot cooldowns during Raid Battles?
A: Yes, same as other game modes.

Q: Can we attack any Raid Bases or do we need to start from the first base?
A: You can attack any Raid Bases but we’d suggest leaving easier bases for weaker members in your alliance so that they can have fun :-)

Q: If we don't battle the raid and save our Energy Cells, will they carry over to the next weekly Raid?
A: No, they won’t carry over to the next event. Energy Cells reset after the event and will start with a new starting value the next time a Raid event starts.
