    BATTLE FOR MIDTOWN 3/15 to 3/20 - "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!"

    Heads Up! The Battle for Empire City will begin on FRIDAY 3/15/13 at 11 AM Pacific Standard Time, and end on WEDNESDAY 3/20/13 at Noon Pacific Standard Time.

    Walkthrough

    The Battle for Empire City event is a PVP event specifically between the syndicates in game. Syndicates must "declare battle" in order to participate in the event. Any member can do this. Once battle is declared, your syndicate will be matched up with other syndicates of similar attack strength, fighting to win influence points.

    Before your syndicate declares battle though, you need to nominate a Defense Leader. This defense leader acts as protection against the opposing syndicate. As long as your Defense Leader is up, the rest of your syndicate cannot be attacked. At this time, the leader gets 100 "Shield Points", which acts as their "health". Each unsuccessful attack against the Leader will take away 10 Shield Points. A successful attack will take all of the Shield Points. Once these points are at 0, the Defense Leader is defeated and the rest of the syndicate is vulnerable to attack.

    Syndicate members will have the option to use a "power attack" that will provide a 50% increase in stats. However, you will use all your health to achieve the increase. Also, unsuccessful power attacks against the Defense Leader will take away 50 Shield Points.

    Each battle lasts 60 minutes. At the end of the 60 minutes, the side that has the most influence points wins. During the battle, there are two ways to get influence points: attacking members of the opposing syndicate and attacking their Hideouts and Safehouses. You receive more influence points for defeating players then for attacking the structures; however you must defeat the player to get the points, while simply attacking the structures will get you points. Players use health points to attack, similar to the boss events. Successful attacks will also award XP and respect to the victor's account.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that until the Hideout goes down, you will only receive half the points possible for defeating another player. Each syndicate will start with one Hideout per battle and it cannot be replaced during a battle. Your top Hideout will be used up by each "battle" your syndicate engages in, regardless of whether it was completely destroyed or not. The syndicate will be able to attack the Safehouse after the Hideout is down and is there solely for points. It adds nothing to a syndicate's defense.

    At the end of the event, the syndicate with the most influence points will win the district being contested. The district will be highlighted on the map as claimed and will not come up again. Rewards will be given to various tiers of winners--please consult the "Rewards" tab to find the reward tiers for each event.

    Finally, please keep in mind that specifications for Battle for Empire City will continue to evolve and improve over time.


    We'd wish you luck but you don't need luck. You need strategy. Be ready.

    Boomer is a developer not a moderator. He hasn't posted in a long time.

    On that note. Welcome back Boomer! Nice to see you posting! Thanks for the information!

    So, as a low-level camper (HTC Green, I am NOT in either of the active Syndicates), I've got a few questions about this whole Syndicate War deal before it goes active ...

    1) If someone in our Syndicate declares War, will I be gaining a great deal of experience for any win/losses, even if I don't participate in the war?

    2) Will wins/losses from Syndicate Wars be reflected on my profile wins/losses?

    3) Are there any level limits between opponents? Because seriously ... I can take on my level range ... but I don't want to see people who are literally 10x my level just waiting to steamroll me

    4) Will attacking player's from Syndicate Wars be reflected in a Player's regular newsfeed? I.E if for some stupid reason I did attack a level 100 during the War, would they still have a direct link back to my hood once the war was over?

    5) Do these Wars grant EXP? Is it possible to participate without earning EXP? (Attacking structures, etc)?

    6) More questions if I can think of any ... (copied from second page post for official response)

    I know, I just though developers also have moderator powers.

    If syndicates are following the path of factions back in Modern War, soon, we will get faction alerts. They say who donated what and who declared war. Great for sniffing out unloyal members.

    Apparently they want to burn everyone out with a 5 day event like they did for MW.

    1. Yes but not a lot. (Just a normal fight win offensively or defensively)
    2. No
    3. No
    4. Maybe (it happened at first in modern war, but then they changed it)
    5. Yeah, I think hitting the wall grants no xp
