Break out the balloons and put on your favorite party hat (or regular hat) because this week we're preparing for our upcoming second anniversary festivities! We've also got the latest on a red-hot upcoming Blitz, 2x excitement, and a returning Legendary Event. But first, S.T.R.I.K.E. up the band and get ready to celebrate!
Second Strike Celebration
It's been two years since our worldwide launch and we wouldn't be here today if it weren't for the passion and support of the community. We love a party, so to help blow out our birthday candles, we have a full slate of events and rewards. Here's what we have planned:
Open Anniversary orbs to earn shards for some of the top characters released during our second year along with Campaign Energy, Gold, Red Star Promotions, and other resources.
Return of The Mad Titan Event
One of our original events, "The Mad Titan" is making its return! This time around we've snapped away the original rewards of Infinity Orb Fragments and instead will be directly rewarding Thanos character shards. The event will appear for everyone that didn't complete all of the missions during its original run. Recruit and rank up Thanos with this blast from the past opportunity!
Cash in on the anniversary festivities with limited-time Anniversary Credits and Festival Orbs. You can earn Anniversary Credits via Blitz battles, Campaign nodes, and Daily Objectives, then use this special currency to open Festival Orbs in the Raid Store for Orange, Purple, and Blue gear rewards.
Cheers to two years, with 10 days of login rewards! Log in every day for 10 days to earn Gold, gear, Anniversary Credits, Thanos character shards, and more.
Be on the lookout for these one-day events that'll double your fun during the anniversary celebration:
Energy Overload -
Stay in the battle longer with 2x Campaign Energy refreshes.
Get ready to use those Power Cores! Campaign Energy refreshes will only cost 50 Power Cores for the duration of this event.
Seeing Double -
Enjoy 2x shard rewards in Campaign nodes for all characters released during our second year.
Raining Gold -
Stock up on Gold with 2x Gold rewards from Campaign nodes.
Be on the lookout for inbox messages with event start times and more information. You don't want to miss this party!
Hail Hydra Blitz
Red Skull has infiltrated Blitz! The leader of Hydra will be around for two Blitz events and because he's a 3-Star unlock, the second Blitz will reward his character shards for all ranks. As we mentioned in last week's blog, Red Skull and his Hydra minions will make your Helicarrier more secure than Stark Tower. Don't miss this chance to earn Anniversary Credits along with recruiting and ranking up Red Skull.
Colossus 2x Event
Yes, the party continues as we congratulate Dark Dimension III's first finisher, 只野マックJAPAN (Tadano Mac JAPAN)! This week, enjoy 2x Colossus shards in his Campaign node: Heroes 7-9. Add this heavy metal mutant to your X-Men and create uncanny possibilities in Arena.
Returning Legendary Event
The Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. himself, Nick Fury, is leaving his desk and joining the fight again with his returning Legendary Event, "Chasing Fury." He's a vital member of the Coulson S.H.I.E.L.D. team on War Defense, so gear up and level up your top Kree Minion team for a chance at recruiting Nick Fury.
It's that time again! Prep your team of mercenaries for their upcoming Pay Day mission with the Merc Mayhem Event. Get 2x character shards for Mercenaries in their respective Campaign nodes.
Until next time…
Good luck, Commanders!
