Asymmetrical Tactical Battles

In the alpha release, tactical battles have been limited to two fleets attempting to either annihilate the other's forces or destroy the other's space station. In the new game modes One-Station Attack and One-Station Defense, defenders will attempt to wipe out the attacking forces while the attacking forces attempt to either destroy the defending space station or eliminate the defending fleet's forces. The number of forces for each side can be set independently from the game mode's configuration menu.

Zone Control

In this game mode, two fleets seek to control an area at the center of the battlefield. Neither team has the support of a space station. Teams gain points by occupying the control zone without any contesting enemy presence. When time runs out, the team with more points wins.

Elimination Dogfight

In this game mode, two fleets meet in combat without the support of space stations. Eliminate all of the other team's forces to win.

Timed Dogfight

In this game, two fleets meet in combat without the support of space stations. Whichever team has the most kills win time runs out wins.

Scoreboard used in timed game modes, such as Zone Control and Timed Dogfight.
