New content:
  • The Arashi Stormbreaker is now available in PvP:
    Power through the skies against other players as the Arashi Stormbreaker saunters in from the western sunset. Packing guns a-plenty and sporting the highest acceleration of any other ship, it is a thing to be reckoned with. Watch your flanks if you face one in the air. However, with great power comes… poor construction. Keep your engineers handy, as the Stormbreaker practically shakes itself apart in hard maneuvers. Time for a little chaos.



  • Crazy King renovated and activated for all lobby sizes (2v2 after event):
    To some, Crazy King is a legend, a myth spoken by grizzled veterans. They speak of long chases and countless ships filling the sky. Legend no more! Crazy King has been gone over with a fine tooth comb to address some wrinkles and bumps, and will be making its debut in 2v2 to join its King of the Hill brethren. This will be the first time the famed Flayed Hills will be seen by some players that have never ventured into a 4v4 match. With 7 Capture Points instead of 5, closer spawns, and fast capturing points, Flayed Hills will be a tour to remember. Get ready for a wild ride!
