Greetings Space Pilots,
Celebrate DarkOrbit's 3rd Anniversary by joining in the fun and playing Capture the Beacon
(CTB)! Capture the Beacon
is similiar to the popular classic Capture the Flag
, which you may or may not already know from other games.
Here are the rules in a nutshell:
- Each company has an X-2 map with a special zone. In this zone, there are two beacons, each belonging to one enemy company, which you need to protect.
- At the same time you must try to retrieve your own beacons from the enemy X-2 maps.
- You'll receive one point as soon as your company brings its own beacon into its own zone and you prevent the enemy teams from capturing their beacons.
The player who has captured a beacon will show up on the mini map and won't have any attack protection during this time. If this player is using his/her cloaking device, it will be deactivated. The current score of a match and the position of the beacons can be seen on the star chart.
Multiple CTB matches will be played throughout the day. The company who wins a CTB match will benefit from a reward during the next hour. A reward will also be presented at the end of the day to the company who wins the most matches.
Have a blast playing Capture the Beacon. For those of you who don't want to play CTB, we've got some other special surprises planned for you today!
Your DarkOrbit Team
