Release notes:
  • Space

    • There are no REDALERT pop ups in the Eta Eridani, Gamma Orionis or Pelia Sector Blocks.

    • The Borg will invade every sector at random intervals on a per sector basis. Look for a “Red Alert” button on the lower right side of your screen.

    • When a REDALERT pops up in a sector block instance, you have seven minutes to get to that sector block before the button vanishes.

    • The Borg that invade are set to level 45 and everyone that is under level 45 will be bolstered to that level once inside the map.

    • Any player above level 45 that enters any Borg Red Alert map aside from those in the Orellius and the Zeta Andromeda Sectors will be bolstered down to level 45.

    • The Borg that invade the Zeta Andromedae Sector are level 51. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.

    • The Borg that invade the Orellius Sector are level 53. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.

    • The Borg enemy in the invasion Deep Space Encounters have no drops but give 5 times XP for kills. This bonus XP stacks with one xp boost and the QXP weekend if its running.

    • Players are offered a mission to receive a 15 minute XP boost upon entering the zone.

    • There are a significant number of accolades associated with this event.

    • There is a daily mission associated with the mission in each sector, which means 11 daily missions in all. The reward for this daily is either a random item or a level appropriate emblem/mark

Late posting this thread? Not really, the BDSE's went live today and late creating the channel? Most definitely NOT, the REDALERT channel was created by me on the same day that the Borg DSE's went to the Tribble Test server for the first time.

I'm aware that more channels have been created for the same reasons since I announced the creation of this channel and other players are free to do as they please, as they have always been. However the biggest difference between this channel and any other, will be that I WILL ALWAYS KEEP IT UP TO DATE and provide up to date information on all of the latest updates.

I will allow other players moderator rights provided they fit a certain criteria as I have all ready done so and I would still like more players to volunteer, see the OP if you're reading this and interested.

I think what BlindPilot met was Cryptic made a Red Alert Channel in game for the same thing you are
doing.

EDIT/ADD BlindPilot already posted this so yeah that is what he meant lol

so my question is what happens when we try to join Cryptic's Gobal Red Alert? do we automatically get pushed into this one?

No offense I'm sure you are a great mod. I'm just wondering what happens.
