Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a single player mode?
Yes. The single player mode can be played as “kill all” or death match style games against the AI.
Is there research in the game for RTS play?
Yes. Player bases and base defenses can be advanced through research. Minions are advanced with enhancements, salvage and upgrades purchased in the OpEd.
Do I get to keep my minions when they die?
Yes. Minions can be regenerated during a match if they die, but only if you have enough war points. All dead minions are regenerated for the next match.
Do my minions keep their upgrades?
Yes. If you buy upgrades for you minions or find salvage for them, these are permanent. Upgrading minions and winning matches increase your rank. Your armies will grow more and more powerful as you play and upgrade them.
How many minions can be in my army?
How many armies can I have?
You can have as many armies as you have resources to buy them. Also, armies can be built from finding salvage.
How many armies can be on a map?
There can be 8 armies on a map. If all GENEI’s (RTS commanders) have 32 minions, that’s 256 minions on the map. And, 64 of those minions can be piloted by live players.
Can GENEI (RTS commander) pilot a minion too?
Yes. But some of the RTS functions will not be available while GENEI is piloting a minion. Be careful!
How does swapping between FPS and RTS work?
Some one has to be GENEI (the RTS commander) for the army. This gets set up before the match, in the game lobby. GENEI can swap his consciousness into a minion and pilot it, but he loses some of his RTS functions as a result. So, be careful doing this.
GENEI can set what minions the FPS players can take over, or let them take over any minion. There may be some special minions that GENEI wants to control in RTS mode exclusively.
If a minion is available to swap into, simply press F1 to exit your current minion. This puts you in “ghost mode” and you can fly around the scene. Click on an available minion and press “F1” again and your consciousness will take over that minion allowing you to pilot it.
