Garrison :STRIKE!

New feature now live!

The :STRIKE command calls in a powerful multi-sector attack from a deployed corporation Garrison!

- RULES SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME! SYSTEM IS IN TESTING! -

Corporations have 1 Strike per day for every two Garrison Ranks over 10 (5 Strikes at Rank XX).

When a Garrison is destroyed, the Corporation that gets the killing shot steals 1 Strike from the enemy Corporation.

Strike counts reset at the same time as Nanorepair, so you cannot stack them. Use it or lose it!

Available to SuperOfficers and Leaders

Chat command format is ":STRIKE [X Loc] [Y Loc] [N or R]" where N = Normal Space, R = The Rift
Example to attack Sector 42/36 in Normal Space -- :STRIKE 42 36 N

You may also use ":STRIKE L" to target your current location.

Strike counts down for 8 seconds, and displays on the map.

Players within 2 hops are notified of the impending strike:
"GARRISON STRIKE IN 3 SECONDS! [33 / 42] - NORTH!"

Enemy players caught in the strike suffer damage and are stunned.

Enemies cannot be killed directly by the strike, but are left extremely vulnerable, depending on how close it was.

Strikes during Garrison Engagements will have special rules to maintain game balance.

“The game population is 12% higher this week than last week, because I've been working on marketing. I read every post, I respond to every email, and I work on TIB 3 to 4 hours a day. Most of what I do recently is back-end, network, hardware, or infrastructure that isn't obvious to players, but is critical to the game functioning. I am very cautious about making big changes to TIB anymore. Every time I do, it is met with outrage and anger -- Even when the change is entirely positive and benefits everyone. The community has made it clear that I should not fix what isn't broken, and I'm listening to that. I would *love* to make big sweeping changes to TIB. I have hundreds of awesome concepts that I'm terrified of trying, because of how angry people get about any change at all... So, it'll happen, but it's going to be slow and gradual over months or years to not rock the boat. As far as "the game is dead"... You realize I've been hearing that for 6 years? Literally from the first week people were telling me the game is dead. I'm still here, and so is my game, where we'll both be probably until I'm dead.”
