    Vortex of Terror



    General Information:

    Nyx is back and she thinks she has an idea how to pin down the enemies who are eradicating humanity. A journey that will not only take pilots into the Vortex of Terror but will also uncover the shadowy past of human history.

    Are you ready to take on these thrilling missions, help uncover more data, battle in the Vortex of Terror for clues and destroy the alien threat? We bet you are, pilot! Take flight and earn outstanding rewards, including rare level 4 P.E.T protocols, valuable items and stunning drone designs!

    The event will be a refresh of last year’s Vortex of Terror event (http://www.bigpoint.com/darkorbit/board/threads/vortex-of-terror.119463/) with the following changes (marked in green):

    The Vortex of Terror is a free galaxy gate, which appears in the middle of your companies x-4 map.

    The progression of this gate is non-linear, meaning as you go along you will find you are given multiple portals to choose from. Each portal will take you to a map which contains a different set of waves.

    So, you can do this galaxy gate several times and it won’t be the same each time.


    Location: x-4 map
    Entry Cost: Free
    Lives: 5
    Cooldown upon completion: 20 hours

    When the Curcubitor event runs, Curcubitor NPCs will spawn on the X-2 to X-8 maps and they will increase in difficulty and drop rewards depending on where they spawn.

    • Curcubitor event will spawn curcubitors at the following times:
      • Monday-Friday: between 19:00 to 23:00 everyday (4 hours)
      • Saturday and Sunday: 11:00 to 15:00 (4 hours) and 19:00 to 23:00 (4 hours)
      • All times are local server times (LST)
    Kill Curcubitors to spawn the Boss Curcubitor! On death, the Curcubitor drops a trick or a treat.

    If Trick, the Curcubitor drops a mine with 20% (of players’ hull) damage after 2 seconds. If Treat, the NPC drops a reward box with random rewards.

    The Treat rewards in the Curcubitor box will be a certain amount of Candy Corn with a 100% chance and additionally one of the rewards below:

    Objectives & Battle Pass:

    When the event starts, there are also objectives that are available for players to complete. The objectives are similar to missions but you don’t need to accept them manually. The progress for the objectives begins automatically when the event starts. Completing these objectives gives you rewards and completing them with the Battle Pass even gives you better rewards.

    Together with the objectives, a “Battle Pass” is available in the shop. You can purchase it either with Uridium or via Payment. The “Battle Pass” gives you access to additional rewards on top of the original rewards that you get from completing the objectives. The objectives as well as the original rewards and the “Battle Pass” rewards can be found in the event window “Objectives”.
