Arms Race:
Arms Race is a battle mode in which special areas that provide buffs spawn on the map. If you can make it to a special area and activate it before your opponents do, your entire team will get a bonus to their combat abilities till the end of that battle. If you capture more than one of the same buff, the bonuses provided by them stack up.
Eight minutes after a battle starts, a Key Area appears in the center of the map. The diameter of this area then shrinks over time. The team that captures it will be able to quickly gain an advantage in points and ultimately win.

How do the areas with buffs work?

  • Each buff area activates 2 minutes after spawning.
  • When you enter one of these areas after its activation, you will receive the buff instantly.
  • If you are within a buff area together with any enemy ships at the moment of its activation, the team with the most ships within the area gets the bonus. If the ship numbers are equal, the area remains in an uncaptured state until the balance of power inside it shifts one way or another.
  • In addition to the buffs, each captured area grants victory points to your team and deducts points from the enemy team.
