How Do I Participate in Alliance Missions?
Only players with a level 20 or higher account that were part of the alliance before the alliance mission began will be eligible to participate. Players who join or leave the alliance after this point will not be eligible.
I see active events. Why?
Alliance events are not alliance missions. Alliance missions are special quests for your alliance.
You will see active alliance missions and events in your ALLIANCE fight tab, by tapping on VIEW. A banner in your alliance treasury will link you back to your current mission when tapped. This banner will be inactive if there are no available alliance missions.
How Do I Unlock Alliance Missions?
Officers and leaders will be able to unlock alliance missions using the resources stored in your alliance treasury. You can donate to the treasury from your ALLIANCE tab, or directly from the alliance mission info page.
Higher difficulty grants greater event points and map rewards. The color of the difficulty level indicates if it is too hard or too easy for the alliance, i.e. green for easy, white for recommended, orange for difficult.
Why Are My Bots Unavailable for Other Missions?
Bots within alliance missions cannot be used in other story or event quests. Choose your bots carefully before you commit to a specific team.
How Does an Alliance Mission Work?
Once you have joined a battlegroup, you will enter the alliance mission map. This map will show you the location and progress of all alliance members playing with you in real time. Use the strategic view to understand the linked node targets and deactivate them carefully with the help of your alliance.
One of the main challenges of alliance missions is finding the most efficient path to the final boss. Well-planned strategies may be required to clear the path of obstacles and reach the end of the map. Buff nodes are another challenge you will face when creating the perfect strategy.
These nodes affect enemy bots directly and indirectly. Some nodes will work on the bots that hold them, and others (called “linked nodes”) will act as buff nodes for stronger enemies.
What Are Linked Nodes?
Linked nodes apply a boost to other bosses. Destroying the source of the linked node will remove the buff it was applying to the other enemy nodes. You can do this by defeating the opponent on the node or passing through it if no opponent is located on the node.
If one of your alliance members starts a fight with one of the enemy bots, the node will become unavailable, and you will have to wait until their fight is over to move forward. Winning a fight will temporarily add prestige to your alliance for the duration of the mission.
Make sure that you coordinate your fights with the rest of your alliance team in your battlegroup chat!
How Many Maps Are There Per Mission?
Alliance mission events last five days. Each individual map will last 24 hours. Once that time has elapsed, the system will calculate the amount of prestige your alliance has earned and, if eligible, your alliance will move forward to the next difficulty level. A new map will be posted, and your battlegroup will have another 24 hours to complete it.
While there is only one map per day, each one of the three battlegroups will access their own version of the map.
Can I Change My Battlegroup?
You will not be able to change your battlegroup after entering a map, but you will be able to select a new battlegroup once the map is over and a new map begins.
Can I Use Repair and Revive Kits?
While normal revive and repair kits are not allowed for this type of event, you will be allowed to use alliance mission repair kits and alliance mission revive kits. These kits only apply to your bots, and using an alliance item will not have an effect on your alliance members.
Make sure that you use them wisely, as there is a limit to the amount of repair and revive kits that may be used in a single map. This limit is per player, and you can check your available uses by opening the battlegroup info panel and selecting the Items tab.
Alliance Mission Tie
In a weekly alliance mission, there can be times when there are four or more alliances that complete the maps on the hardest difficulty and effectively achieve the same score. This would seem to show that these alliances all tied for first place that week and earned the rewards that come with it. However, there are some internal and minor scoring elements that may cause three or more of these alliances to show as being tied for first place, and subsequently, they are rewarded as such. When this happens, the next highest scoring alliance (including the internal/hidden scoring) will be rewarded with fourth place or higher. In other words, instead of there being one alliance in first place, one in second, one in third, and one in fourth, there results in three alliances in first and one in fourth. The rewards for that week will be paid out to all of the tied alliances and their members on Tuesdays. If your alliance was one of those affected and you did not receive your rewards by Thursday, please contact Kabam Support by clicking on the Submit a request link above.
