Sevens Shelters to Jointly Defend Human Civilization
Seven Shelter Lands have been added to the vast, seamless map. They are; Charles Shelter Land, Snowfield Shelter Land, Blaze Shelter Land, Sand Shelter Land, Storm Shelter Land, Wilderness Shelter Land, and Swamp Shelter Land. Of the seven, the Charles Shelter Land is initially controlled by the Charles Town Clash champions, while the Snowfield Shelter Land is under command of the Trade Federation.
All players can choose to move into the Snowfield Shelter Land to enjoy its unique scenery and special resources. The five remaining Shelter Lands are up for grabs, but don’t think that getting control of one will be an easy task. There will be fierce competition among the top Camps to see who has the strongest force and the best ability to protect human civilization.
Elite Camps Clash! Servers’ Honor on the Line!
10 invited Camps from the final 16 of the Charles Town Clash will be selected to join the SL Showdown, a cross-server battle to end all battles. Up to 4 servers will be divided into 1 Combat Zone. There will be 40 Camps in each Combat Zone with 5 ultimate winners earning the right to control the remaining Shelter Lands. Each Shelter Land will be contested by up to 8 Camps.
From February 8 to 10, a round of knockout matches for each Shelter Land will take place daily, 8 to 4, 4 to 2, and finally 2 to 1, with the victor taking command of the Shelter Land.
Prepare for the Final Battle
During the 3-day knockout matches, two opposing camps will occupy each side an instanced battle map and earn battle points by killing the opposing players and occupying strongholds. The first Camp to reach the required number of battle points wins.
A world boss will appear daily at 11:00 a.m. Players of a server must work together to bring it down. The top 4 servers that defeat the boss in the fastest time can win helicopters for the Camp that represents their server in the SL Showdown, giving them an advantage in the occupation battles.
During the preparation period from 12:00 to 19:30, the participating Camps can enter the battle map and begin to spend Construction Points on infrastructure within their occupied territory. At 20:00, the showdown will begin. Both sides need to attack at full strength to gain more combat points. Combat points are earned by killing opposing players, or by destroying their base console. There are also 14 strongholds on the map for players to capture. Camps gain combat points every minute based on the number of strongholds currently captured by both sides. Strongholds can change hands at any time, and players need to be on their guard. Some time into a match, additional opportunities to earn combat points will appear.
Occupy Shelter Lands, Protect Fellow Survivors
After three rounds of elimination, the final occupiers of the remaining five Shelter Land will be determined. Occupiers can move their Camps into the Shelter Lands. Each Shelter Land comes with a unique landscape, special supplies, and camp honors.
Pure snow-capped mountains, mysterious swamplands, tropical islands… Each Shelter Land’s unique scenery will give the Camp a new look. NPCs will also change clothes to match the season and environments. Besides, each Shelter Land has a unique landmark. In the Blaze Shelter Land, there are monuments of meritorious deeds that record the history of man’s brave resistance to natural disasters. The mysterious angel goddess oversees the Swamp Shelter Land, while the Sand Shelter Land has the Sand Castle, the Snowfield Shelter Land has the Tree House, etc.
The unique weather and terrain of each Shelter Land result in different plants and animals exclusive to that climate. In the Snowfield Shelter Land, players can gather precious matsutake and encounter leisurely yaks. Sand Shelter Land is a treasure trove for wild strawberries found along the banks of the oasis, just be sure to keep an eye out for hungry Corsac foxes… There is something new for everyone to explore and find in these areas.
