On the Battle Stations, each faction has to fight to capture control points. All participants in a Battle Station instance will gain Victory Points, the winning team obviously gaining a higher proportion to the losing team. Victory Points can be used to buy special items, armor and weapons from the vendors in Tower Shops.

Introduction

The goal in the Battle Station is to acquire more points than the opposing faction. A faction receives points by capturing control points.

A Control Point.


There are four control points in the Battle Station. Three of them are situated at the tips of the station and one is in the middle. To gain control of these control points, simply right click on it. It will take a few seconds to gain control of it. During this time, you will be unable to move or make any actions. Once you have taken control of a point, your side points will rise. The more points you control, the faster your points tick upwards.

Below is the map of the Battle Station.

The control points are shown by stars. White stars are un-controlled, red stars are controlled by clan, and blue stars are controlled by omni. As you can see above, omni already has 2 control points taken, and has accumulated 2 points in this battle.

The first one to achieve 500 points is declared the winner. The winning faction will get the highest reward which is a set amount of VP depending on your level. The losing side will get VPs acording to the amount of points that they accumulated.

Entering the Battle Station

Once you click on the Battle Station Transportation Control Terminal, you will be entered in a queue. You can either sign up individually, or as a team.

Each faction has the same amount of spots available to them. When a spot becomes available to you, a window will appear saying that there is room in the Battle Station. If you signed up as a team, the invite will only come when the entire team can go in, so it may take more time. Once you get invited, click on the accept button and you will get warped inside.

Neutrals will have an extra option at this point because they will have to choose which side they will fight for.

Decontamination Room

When you are warped into the Battle Station you will start in the Decontamination Room (also referred to as the Buff Room). This room will immediatelly clear your NCU. While in the room you will get 50000 nano every few seconds so it is an ideal place to make sure you are fully prepared for battle with all necessary nano programs running in your NCU.

Be quick buffing, you only have a very limited amount of time. When your time expires you will be warped straight in the main part of the Battle Station.

If you happen to die anywhere in the Battle Station, you will return to this room and start again. Your NCU will be cleared and you will have to rebuff everything.

Points

When inside the Battle Station, you will start at one of the station's tips. You have to maneuver your way through the Battle Station to the different capture points to start gaining points for your side.

Points are calculated per tick. At every tick, the station calculates how many control points each side has. For every control point owned, a certain amount will be added to each side's total points. The center control point is worth twice as much as each individual side point. Meaning the center is worth 40% of the total points, so it is obviously very important to try to keep the center.

Warps

There are various warps inside the Battle Station. Basically, from each tip you can warp to any of the other tips, or to the center. There will be a marking on the side of the warp which will tell you where that particular warps leads. These are marked by the letters : A, B and C. A is the NW tip, B is the South tip, and C is the NE tip.

VP Reward

As mentioned already, every time you participate in a Battle Station you will receive Victory Points. However, there is also the possiblity to gain some extra victory points while you are inside the battle station figthing. It is quite simple. When you have killed someone, depending on the amount of damage you have done, a pole will appear as shown in the image below.

If you double click this you will receive some extra victory points based on your level.

Exit

If at anytime you want to exit before the battle is over, there are several exit points in the middle of the station. Simply walk on top of one to be transported out of the Battle Station. You will not receive any Victory Points if you use the exit.
