Explorers!

Ludia announced a few pretty awesome things on their forums today! Let’s dive into an overview!

Alliance Missions

It would appear the team has been hard at work debugging the issues with the alliance missions. While they were hoping to have this ready for today, it appears it may take one more week (and possibly some change) before they’re ready to re-release them.

What this should mean is sometime next week, we should be seeing Alliance missions again! Excellent news! They did mention they’ll be updating the thread on alliance missions in a few days, so we might get a more accurate projection later in the week.

Here’s the thread where they talk about alliance missions.

March Movement

In addition to the reinstatement of alliance missions, Ludia also made another exciting announcement! There are three big new things on the docket for March!

Alliance Rush

From March 1st to March 4th, there will be a global alliance versus alliance competition called Alliance Rush. Each alliance will accumulate “rush points” during this period (starting at 10 AM EST Friday and going until 10 AM EST Monday).

Each time an alliance member enters the arena, they earn 1 alliance rush point. Each time they win a battle, they earn an additional alliance rush point.

Throughout the weekend, Rush points will be calculated and posted on a leaderboard on the Ludia forums. It appears they’ll have this mechanism (leaderboard) set up in the game itself at a future date, but we’ll see the alliance rush points at 3pm Friday (EST), 10AM Saturday (EST), 10 AM Sunday (EST) and the final results 10 AM Monday (EST).

And here are the rewards!

March 1st to 4th

March%20board1

The top 50 alliances all get some Diplodocus DNA!

There will be a second Alliance Rush event sometime later in March. At the moment the tentative date is March 22nd to the 25th, but this date could change. The rewards for the second Alliance Rush event are as follows:

March 22nd to 25th
March%20board2

Global Challenge

The second event that will be happening in March is the global event challenge. All individuals from all guilds will have an opportunity to earn rewards for hitting a goal. The first global challenge will revolve around spinning supply drops. The second will revolve around darting dinosaurs.

Here are the details from the forums:

Supply Spree

  • Starting: Monday, March 11th @ 10:00 AM EST
  • Ending: Friday, March 15th @ 10:00 AM EST

Rewards
March%20board3

Drone Dash

  • Starting: Monday, March 25th @ 10:00 AM EST
  • Ending: Friday, March 29th @ 10:00 AM EST

Rewards
March%20board4

While drone dash has the heading of “Supply Drop Spins” I believe it actually should be dinosaur darting sessions. A single darting session means you fired at least one dart and hit a dinosaur for any amount of DNA. For supply spree, it should be pretty straightforward (each spin means you collected resources from one supply drop).

Again, initially in this beta version of the event, the progress tracking for this event will take place on the forums (similar to the alliance rush event). Later on, this should be included in game.

PVP Season 6

Finally, another tournament is coming. It will begin March 1st and go until March 16th. More details will be coming on this (rewards etc) at a later date.

Concluding Thoughts

We’re incredibly happy to see some new challenges that are incorporating alliances in different ways, and a global challenge series. The PVP season hopefully comes with some other changes as well (re: cheaters and consequences) but we’ll have to wait to see how that plays out.

Overall, it’s exciting to see some new events! Looking forward to what the next steps are and what is to come!
