New Feature: Strike Groups!

The Infinite Black: Expansion will include a Strike Group feature in Fleet vs Fleet combat that gives new players and smaller corporations additional tools for defensive participation.

Strike Groups are a team of ships assigned to defend Alliance Planets, Corporate Garrisons, and the new Corporate Outpost installation. Each strike group is composed of 4 ships (Small, Medium, Large, Huge) giving new players with smaller ships more value in the corporation.

Improved enemy AI code controls the Strike Group with advanced fleet strategies, using mechanics like Grapple, Technician repairs, and focus-fire. You do not need to be online when attacked -- Your strike group will automatically defend and earn valuable PvP rewards!

There can be several Strike Groups assigned to defense, and they will only deploy as needed based on the number of attackers. Garrisons, Planets, and Outposts cannot be attacked until their Strike Group reserves are depleted. This allows smaller corporations and alliances to survive without always keeping members online for defense, and creates a new event for everyone to enjoy!
