XENOS, NEW TECH, NEW UNITS11/21/2012
“Phantom” Infiltrators are engineered xenobiological organisms designed to survive incredible acceleration and dynamic stress. Each organism has been grafted into a high-speed, stealth variant of the Nemesis “Hildr” armor system and implanted with a cortical inhibitor. Their speed, stealth, and survivability combine to make them a formbidible long-range reconnaissance unit.
"EXACLIBUR" ORBITAL INTERDICTION PLATFORM
The "Excalibur" Orbital Interdiction Platform represents a leap forward in "growing" xenobiological components that can imitate complex electronic and mechanical systems. The command, targeting, and biocannon sub-systems are all distinct self-sufficient organisms - requiring only the addition of a limited warp propulsion drive and life-support superstructure before orbital insertion.
In addition to your shiny new weapon systems, you will notice that your Maps have been upgraded with an integrated Threat Scanner to actively seek out potential enemy threats. No more scrolling!

CHAT NOW ONLINE!08/17/2012
Our secure satellite network uplink is now online!
Talk to surrounding commanders on an unsecured channel. Frequency blocks are divided across sections of 100,000 Commanders, by order of their first login date.
Example: If you are Commander # 40,000, you will only be able to talk to Commanders # 1- # 39,999 and #40,001 - # 100,000
Clan Chat: Coordinate with your clan members in real-time on a secure channel!
Bug Fixes: Commanders should notice increased Battle Report refresh rates. COMMAND NEEDS YOUR FEEDBACK!
Command would like to know – would all Commanders prefer the unsecured channel to be divided by proximity, or by language? Our technicians can adjust according to your preference.
Get to it Commanders - we're sorry about the wait.
Gen. Trevor Winters,
MISSION 3 - EUREKA!08/13/2012
This morning we began receiving distress signals from tech teams operating around active Infected Sites across the wasteland. They've been overrun. Some of these idiots have gotten themselves taken prisoner, while the others are holed up in fallback positions awaiting immediate evac. Looks like we’ve gotta go in after them
NEW DEFENSIVE MISSIONS!08/13/2012
Send Reinforcements! Evacuate Friendlies or Attack Infested Sites… The choice is yours!
NEW GAME FEATURE – TECH NEXUS07/17/2012
The eggheads at R&D have done it again! Recent advances in nanofabrication now allow Commanders to customize the speed, production time, and overall credit consumption of their units. STRATCOMM has granted you authorization to modify your favorite units and vehicles according to your mission-specific needs and preferred combat styles.
MISSION 2: OPERATION SKYFALL06/22/2012
Like we don't have enough problems. Scanners have detected an artificial body with an approximate mass of 10 level 5 Emitters in a rapidly decaying orbit. It Looks like Morgana managed to override the stabilizers on one of the old Imperial orbital relay stations. Real cute, huh?
Now don't panic - the eggheads say it's not big enough to kill all life. Worst case scenario, we're looking at a crater the size of my ego, 10,000 km of scorched earth in every direction, and maybe another ice age.
For those of you who don't feel like dressing in layers for the next thousand years, command is assembling a combined task force to repair one of the old planetary surface-to-air defensive cannon emplacements the ancients were kind enough to have lying around for such occasions. I don't know about you, but I know I like living… and I like big guns. Let's get to work.
Gen. Trevor T. Winters
Commanders, We're pleased to announce the launch of some much anticipated major additions to the game.
We have lone wolves and clans - but now it’s time to see what you highly-trained killing machines can accomplish together. Commanders can now choose to assist in completing global objectives. These missions will change in complexity over time as command determines new strategic goals. Your first objective is to save my third point of contact certain death. Your reward: me not dying, and a hearty handshake. I take this one personally, commanders, so while participation is optional - I would appreciate you getting on it.
Those are the nuts and bolts, Commanders. We’ll have more information to follow.
-Gen. Trevor “Tornado” Winters STRATCOMM

NETWORK MEMORANDUM - NEW MISSIONS!02/29/2012
You may have noticed some new icons on your command interface. No - you have not been demoted, you are not being dragged through Basic Training again, nor have you been reclassified as walking sandbags.
We here at Strategic Command are proud to announce the first run of our new "Missions" feature. We're offering new tasks of varying complexity to assist you in gaining the extra experience and resources you need to excel on the battlefield. As of now, we will be evaluating your performance as you complete tasks in Construction, Unit Acquisition, and R&D.These new missions will become more difficult (and more rewarding) over time.
Based on your after-action reports and performance we will be releasing new mission categories currently under development. As these missions WILL eventually go hot (live-fire exercises and full engagements) - do not neglect this training opportunity.
Participation is these exercises is not mandatory - feel free to cheat yourself.
Transforming Robots Improvements02/23/2012
Once again we’re rolling out shiny new toys to give your Sector that special extra something. So what do you get the commander who has everything? Giant transforming robots, unexploded nuclear ordinance, and other whizz-bang gizmos from our R&D department! Remember - highly enriched fissile material has a high rate of decay - so come get'em while they're hot…
New Building Shop design!01/03/2012

Death or Glory!10/12/2011
Commander, Looks like we've kicked up one hell of a hornets nest. I wish I could say I'm shocked, but this just about figures. They were bad enough when they were dumb, but more ugly than dangerous - now they're under the control of a schizophrenic calculator with a god complex. I told those damn bean-counters she was an industrial strength bad idea. \n\n Those of you who aren't ready to hand the planet over to mutant hermit crabs, listen up.
We have a way to turn this around. The eggheads have found a way to synthesize a sister bioassembler Antigen to the HADES strain Morgana's cooked up. We will see their horde of sinister mutant freaks, and raise them one horde of Antimutant freaks with guns! You and your Clanmates will become stronger, freakier, slightly cheaper, and maybe grow a tentacle or two.
The good news: to synthesize the Antigen, you and your men get to kill Mutants and harvest their nasty Mutant-blood.
More good news: since we're in the Emitters, and they're trying to attack them, they come to us! Just pick a good seat and mow 'em down as wave after wave of them come and try and kill you. You are not authorized to die, I cannot stress that enough.
Creating your own army of horrible Antimutant frea— er, patriots, is easy. Send the brave volunteer units to one of your Clan's Emitters and open the A-Mutation window. Select the number of troops you wish to irreversibly disfig— er, improve, and press "A-Mutate". The number of test subjects you can A-mutate at a time depends on the amount of the Antigen you've collected in your Emitter. You can review the Emitter's "A-Mutation" records from the "A-Mutation History" window in the Emitter interface.
To create Antimutants from various different kinds of units, upgrade the Emitter. Level 2 unlocks Infantry, level 3 unlocks Armored Corps, level 4 - Artillery, level 5 - Air Forces. The higher the Emitter's level - the more Mutants it will attract. Which means more Mutant corpses. And more Antigen to make your own forces. Get the idea?
Clan leaders can ration out Antigen to Emitters as they deem fit, although some Antigen will be lost depending on the Emitters respective levels and distance from each other. You gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet, son.
I know things look grim. But hell, you spent your whole life in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Another Apocalypse should be a cakewalk. Get your Clan forces together and try and see this as another growth opportunity.
Death, Glory, Victory.
General Trevor "Tornado" Winters, STRATCOM
The war for territory begins!10/17/2011
Commander, know you know your history, but as a Commander it never hurts to reflect upon what you're fighting for...
the First Era of the Old World Empire humanity was just beginning to spread its dominion off the homeworld. The work was slow and hard – geo-engineering and Terraforming technology were in their infancy. Nanoassemblers were costly and slow, and early attempts on Europa and Io had failed due to their inability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Then a breakthrough: Bioassembler organisms. Living nanomachines that could evolve, adapt, and reproduce – manipulating the very soil and air of alien worlds, and creating the organic chemical precursors to Terran life. They promised to open up hundreds of new worlds for humanity in only a handful of generations. Then something went wrong.
The HDS-2 bioassembler organism, now known as 'Hades', escaped containment and began Terraforming the Earth itself. It hit us hard and fast. Populations were decimated, broken down as raw material for the assemblers. Huge patches of a strange new radioactive Crystal marked the path of the 'Hades' organism, along with deformed plant and animal life that had been twisted into new alien forms. One by one, entire continents fell.
It was only a matter of time before there would be nowhere left for humanity to hide. In desperation, the Empire pulled all available productive capacity and resources into one last hope – the Eden Project. A network of Emitter Arrays that could trigger the release of a coded protein within the HDS-2 organisms, causing them to cease reproduction.
Phase Two would release redesigned bioassemblers that could repair the damage done and recreate the Earth as a paradise. The Emperor was forced with a terrible choice: there wasn't time to build the network on a Global Scale before Hades swept the Earth of human life. Most must be sacrificed so that the species would continue.
All continents but one were abandoned and quarantined in an effort to save one last bastion of humanity. Citizens were drafted into forced labor, and resources and food were rationed to allow construction of the Emitters to continue. Billions died. The provincial military forces, abandoned with their civilian population by the central Imperial Authority, seceded and scrabbled for control of their abandoned territories. By the time the Emitters were completed, there wasn't much left to save. The civil war started in the Capital with a single riot. Two months later, the bombs fell. The Emitters had been only 42 days away from activation...
This is why we fight, Commander. It is up to you and your brothers-in-arms to reclaim the Imperial Legacy and fight to be the saviors of your world and leaders of the new order. He who controls the Emitters holds humanity's future in their hands.
So, now that you're all good and motivated, remember: teamwork is the name of the game! To activate the 'Eden' system your Clan must capture, hold, upgrade, AND power all Emitters on the Map. If you succeed, you will decide where new clean new rivers flow and fertile farmland appears – or which regions are doomed to remain scorched and poisoned.
It won't be easy. The Emitters themselves are occupied by deadly Mutants – not to mention rival Clans.
Oh, and then there are the Stalkers. Warriors descended from the civilians who survived the war, they've taken advantage of the Emitters as shelters from which to launch their raiding parties. They're capable and resourceful fighters... and won't go without a fight.
You've been training for this your whole life, Commander. I trust you won't fail now.
The Praetorian Guard10/10/2011
The Praetorian Guard are warrior elite who have sworn a blood oath directly to you and their officers. Their armor rating: classified. Their methods: spoken of only in vague whispers. An Officer of the Praetorian Guard must have no living family and undergo a full brain probe to affirm his complete loyalty. The process permanently destroys the ventromedial prefrontal cortex; eliminating feelings of empathy, shame, compassion and guilt.
