Dark times have befallen Earth. The once flourishing human civilization fell into despair and chaos. On the brink of utter destruction came a new hope. A technological breakthrough enabled travel to a new, potentially habitable planet. A place to carry over the human legacy.

The strongest foundations on Earth started amassing the resources needed to make the leap…but such resources were scarce. Not everybody will be able to make the leap, but everybody wants to. World powers formed strong coalitions to secure their passage. They built massive motherships to act as arks and transport their people to their new home. Unfortunately, none of the coalitions had enough resources and energy to send over its entire fleet of motherships to the other side. In their last ditch attempt to escape the doomed planet, the coalitions waged a ferocious war for domination over the resources they needed. For any given coalition, leaving a few ships behind would mean their certain destruction by the other coalitions. Survival became a balancing act of power.

You have been summoned to command one of the motherships. Millions of lives depend on your judgement. You will have to do what it takes to ensure that those that have trusted you live to see the next generation. Your mission is to help the coalition gain the upper hand and keep your mothership afloat. Under no circumstances should you land on Earth, lest your people be destroyed by the savage humans left behind. Your task is to keep your ship in one piece, but you intend to turn your mothership into a force to be reckoned with in its own right. You will see it prosper, gain fame, and instill fear in the hearts of your enemies. Coalition or not, you will harvest Earth down to the core. You will make sure when the time comes, your ship will be ready to make the jump, with allies or on its own and you will be ready to face whatever exists on the other side… and who knows what that may be.

We've been working heavily lately to improve the experience for our valued players. We've made a number of updates, major ones being regarding mothership design and a brand new profile page.

New Mothership Design

The mothership is at the heart of our struggle. When you’re out in space, fighting against an onslaught of enemies, your mothership is your single hope to survive and leave Earth alive, along with the millions that have been entrusted to you. It’s the vehicle that opens up new opportunities in distant systems.

So… Keeping in mind the grand role motherships play, we’ve decided to give our motherships a face-lift. The new ones are much more worth fighting and dying for. We hope it will be to your liking!

New mothership concept

We’ve reviewed a number of concepts, as well as pros and cons of the existing design one (based on concept #4 below). It was somewhat challenging to come up with a futuristic design that’s in line with the purpose of the ship (Form Follows Function) and I feel proud of our art team and the quality work they’ve delivered for this one.

Profile Page

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.
Mark Twain

Although numerical or qualitative advantage should never be underestimated, in hands of fearless few, battle ground may turn into an art and outnumbering enemy will flee in hope of mercy. If they are able to get out alive, of course.

Although we don’t have cemeteries in the War to the Core, conquered battles and defeated opponents lie in your stats. We decided to store and showcase them, both to motivate you to achieve more and inject fear into those who dare to face you in the battle arena. That being said, the new feature isn’t limited by that. After all, every warmonger needs a profile to showcase his/her might!

Rapid Fire

In addition to all these, we've been working on a new type of attack that's deadly in short range. A couple more bits to resolve, but pretty soon it should be ready for usage in the battle field.

It's still in "beta" for a reason. But can you share the kind of bugs you hit so you can help us fix them?
