As is no doubt apparent at this stage, the Forgotten have been engaging in counter attacks
across a number of worlds where the GDI and NOD have yet to establish bases of operations. Intel has shown us that other settlers on these worlds are quickly eradicated by the Forgotten who have seemingly strayed from their defensive tactics and have gone on the offensive.
Future worlds will be approached with caution, however… we must warn you. The Forgotten ARE attacking, and you must be ready to defend yourself. We cannot underestimate our enemy.
Below you will find some additional information to inform you how this may affect your efforts in our on-going war against the Forgotten. The below is subject to change over the near future as we tune the Forgotten and their effectiveness, but it will give you a rough idea of how things will work for the time being.
We will of course communicate any changes that will be made to this feature if/when they happen.
Q: When will the Forgotten Counter Attacks be released?
Our current estimate is that the first World supporting Counter attacks will be opened on Wednesday 5th March and more information will be provided about this new World closer to that date.
Q: First World? Won’t the Forgotten Attacks be added to all worlds?
No. A feature of this impact needs to be monitored, and tuned accordingly beforehand. Even after this is done the size and potential impact of this feature could dramatically alter the current progress on existing worlds to a point where we deem it unwise.
Q: Will this first World with Forgotten Attacks be a normal world like every other?
Not exactly. Our first World supporting the Forgotten Attacks will be a Beta world. As such, it’s important to note that we may be making changes to this world throughout its lifetime in order to gather feedback and make changes to the Forgotten Attacks, ready for release on future worlds. It will however function normally otherwise, and you can still buy Funds and take on the Forgotten Fortress in the same way you can every other world.
Q: What about future Worlds, will they have Forgotten Attacks too?
Yes, we plan on releasing all future worlds with the Forgotten Attacks ready to go.
Q: So, how will these attacks work?
See below for details
Q: How often will I be attacked?
You will be attacked at least once every 16 hours. This won’t necessarily be a single attack however as the Forgotten are a relentless force. They can attack you multiple times.
Q: Which Forgotten bases will attack me?
Every Forgotten encampment in close proximity to your base can attack you, with the exception on the Forgotten Fortress.
Q: What should I know about the attacks themselves?
First of all it should be stressed that the Forgotten are a relentless enemy and their attacks WILL hurt. They have also been studying the GDI and NOD armies and do have some idea of viable attack formations as opposed to waves of cannon fodder. The Forgotten hold the potential to destroy your bases if they are not kept in check, so be ready to defend yourselves and cover up any vulnerabilities your defences might have.
