Campaign SelectionEdit

Campaign selector

The Campaign Selector

Build the Defense Simulator on your base and through it you can embark on a number of defensive campaigns against stronger and stronger NPCs of differing levels, research levels, and troop compositions. More campaigns will unlock as you level up your Defense Simulator building.

Each campaign has a number of individual attacks that can be initiated by using a charge of the Defense Simulator, which is similar to that of a Warp Gate, except that it has a shorter recharge time of only 15 minutes and a 6-launch capacity.

At the end of each simulation you will be scored as to how effectively you defended your base receiving XP and an item. Any buildings lost in the simulation are not damaged when you return to your base.

The key to maximizing the points is to lose no turrets in the fight (3 stars) and do it on the first attempt (2x bonus). The key to winning in the first attempt is to either blow a simulator charge to see where that particular level will attack, or to know beforehand. See Campaign Info for more details. By defending with your strongest towers at the point of attack you can defeat a simulation for the maximum score.

Boost SelectionEdit

DefenseSim BoostSel

Defense Simulator - Boost Selection

After choosing the campaign, you can apply both a XP boost and a defense boost, from those available on the Boost Selection screen.

XP BoostEdit

Depending on what you choose on the Boost Selection screen, battle XP is multiplied by

Star XP BoostEdit

Depending on the number of Defense Buildings you lose in the simulation, you shall get stars and a XP boost:

  • No buildings lost: 3 stars and 4x XP boost
  • Lesser than 1/2 of turrets lost: 2 stars and 2x XP boost
  • More than 1/2 of turrets lost: 1 star and no XP boost
  • If CC is destroyed you lose.

Non-defense buildings may be lost without incurring any penalty. Only losing a turret or the Banner Monument shall prevent you from gaining 3 stars.

Unlock bonus XP BoostEdit

The first time you win a simulation you get a 2x XP boost.

The maximum boost is 240x XP if you use a Defense Sim XP x30, lose no buildings, and are unlocking the simulation.

Attacks come from which direction?Edit

Polar directions

Polar directions

On the mission selector you have 8 possible choices.

The first page of Defense Training starts at N and ends at SW. The second page of Defense Training starts at S and ends at NE and so on.

NW N NE
W

+

E
SW S SE

It continues around your base counter clockwise.

This means that when the last mission of Tank Maneuver is at W the first of The Vanguard missions will be at SW.

Some campaigns do not follow the counter-clockwise scheme, with attacks coming from seemingly random directions. (Noted in All or Nothing, other campaigns may have this feature/bug.)

Some simulations with multiple kinds of unit may not attack from the same spot. Some Ahh! Giant Spiders' simulations have this feature but it's mostly noted in All or Nothing (and probably onward). For example, Shrikes may appear from the S corner and after a few seconds Disruptors and Pulse Tanks will spawn from the N corner, usually far from the base, out from base's visible boundaries.

Starting today, you'll begin to see various encrypted boxes start dropping from the Defense Sim. If you snag one of these boxes bring it to me and I can unlock its contents...for a small fee of course!

Make sure to visit the Defense Sim today and begin your hunt for these powerful boxes! They can contain some premium items like Incendiary Cores, Vermillion Cores, Cerulean Cores, and even rare Engineering Lab Equipment and patches.

The key to these boxes can be purchased from the store, so visit the featured tab for more information.
