Street Assault FAQs

 

How does Street Assault work?

Street Assault pits your syndicate against two rival syndicates in an intense war to control the street map. Each syndicate member deploys crew units of varying power to Nodes on a map that represent strategic locations of the area.

All syndicate members are able to declare war. After declaring war, your syndicate is matched against two other syndicates of similar strength in a battle to conquer or defend the map Nodes. The color of your syndicate during a war will be red, green or blue and is subject to change for each war.

Each Street Assault event features four “Street Assault-specific" crew units that can be deployed. These crews can be earned in other events, and may be purchased for cash and gold on the Street Assault map screen during a war.

The purchased crew does not have attack or defense stats, as they are only used for Street Assault. Crew units have what's called "Power" that is used specifically during Street Assault.

While crew units purchased with in-game cash will change from event to event, units purchased with gold will not change. We do not offer refunds for units purchased with gold, as they can be used in future events.

 

What are Deploy Points?

Deploy Points equal to the power of each deployed unit are added to both the Personal and Syndicate Deploy Point scoreboards. These points are earned regardless of the win/loss status of any nodes, and the scoreboards are incremented upon deploy.

 

What are Node Control Points?

The Node Control Point value of each node on the playfield is increased by the power value of each crew unit deployed by all players to that node.

Node Control Points are earned by the syndicate that deployed the highest amount of power (Deploy Points) to each node at the end of each war. These points are awarded to syndicates (not individual players) and are scored at the end of the war.

 

What are Bonus Deploy Points?

The Node Control Point value of each node on the playfield is increased by the power value of each crew unit deployed by all players to that node.

Node Control Points are earned by the syndicate that deployed the highest amount of power (Deploy Points) to each node at the end of each war. These points are awarded to syndicates (not individual players) and are scored at the end of the war.

 

How does scoring work?

 

At the end of the war, Node Control Points for each node are awarded to the syndicate that deployed the largest amount of power to that node. Node Control Points and Syndicate Deploy Points are added to create the Total Points for each syndicate and determine the first, second, and third place finishers in the war. In the case of a tie, the tying syndicates share the lower finishing place.

 

How does the rewarding work?

Street Assault event prizes are given for syndicates placing first, second, or third in each 60 minute war, and one final prize is given for your syndicate's placement on the leaderboard. Rewards are determined by how many points you earned during that war, and are not part of a Tier System. You will not receive better rewards for defeating higher ranked or stronger syndicates.

 

Do I have to participate in this event?

No, this event is entirely opt-in, similar to Raid Boss and Battle for Empire City. However, in order to receive event rewards, it is necessary to actively participate.

 

How does the match-making work between syndicates?

Matchmaking between syndicates in Street Assault is similar to the matchmaking in Battle for Empire City. The system looks at the overall strength of your syndicate; the sum of your syndicate's power will be compared to the sum of the other syndicates' power when looking for potential match-ups. As time goes on without a match, the parameters will relax slightly.

 

Why did I not receive a final match-up?

There is anywhere from a 30-60 minute cut off time for the final battle to guarantee that syndicates participate in a full match. You have to receive a match before this cut-off time or you will not get to participate in a final battle. We recommend declaring at least 20-40 minutes, as this too can vary, before the cut-off time in order to guarantee that you receive a final match-up. 

 

How many units do I start the event with?

You are given 100 free deploys at the beginning of the event, but you do not start off with 250 deploys. You can accrue additional deploys throughout the entire events and can purchase additional deploys at any time, up to the maximum of 250.

 

Is it possible to stock up on Street Assault units before the event start?

It is not currently possible to purchase Street Assault units prior to the event.

 

Are syndicates locked during the event?

Syndicate rosters cannot be changed during Street Assault.  You cannot change syndicates during the Street Assault event and leaders cannot remove members from their syndicate during this event.
