  • Primary Specialization: Miracle Worker
    • Miracle Workers lean heavily on healing and weapon enhancing abilities, belying their roots as an engineering-heavy specialization.
    • Miracle Worker is a Primary Specialization, but Captains may instead choose to slot it as a Secondary to benefit from the first 15 abilities offered.
    • Abilities may be purchased in this Specialization even while it is inactive.
    • With the introduction of a new Primary Specialization, we are also increasing the cap on Specialization Points up to a new max of 180.

    • Player fleets will be presented with a full-sized Holding, comprised of a primary track and three subtracks, each with five tiers of progression.
      • Each tier and subtrack will offer fleets new improvements to their Colony World holding, as well as access to new equipment, and new gameplay options.
    • Please visit our blog for more details!

  • Dranuur Gauntlet
    • Dranuur Gauntlet is a new, five-player, cross-faction queue.
    • The joint Kentari-Lukari colony in the Dranuur system is under attack, as an enemy fleet moves to assault the planet before its orbital defenses can be completed.
    • Keep the planetary defenses intact while the ground crews work to replicate important tactical systems they require. Once those are ready, players will be able to fully activate the defense satellites to aid in the defense.
    • This queue is designed for level 60 players, with normal, advanced, and elite versions.
    • For more information, please visit our blog!
