AIRCRAFT SYSTEM

I shouldn’t be writing this as I thought this feature isn’t going to be released very soon but I think I underestimated the timeline of the devs. As players, we should remember that the success of challenging the MAW is dependent on the following :

  • Aircraft Rating
  • Stats
  • Troop Formation
  • Heroes
  • Gaming Style ( F2P, Mid Spender, Spenders)
WARNING: Playing Joint Exercises will AFFECT things outside the MAW. If you port inside the MAW, ALL troops outside your settlement will AUTOMATICALLY return to your settlement. Setting PRESET Formations INSIDE the MAW will copy the heroes build OUTSIDE the MAW with ZERO (0) troops. 
Recommended build is based on my build. Its a case to case basis dependent on your build. 

Upgrading components enhance the stats of respective troops. These stats are permanent. The higher the level of your components, the more stats benefits you can get as well as the higher the % of your aircraft skills at the same time.

Every level upgrade will add Star Points. These Star Points unlock other unlocked components or skills of the Aircraft.

To upgrade the star levels, all components will need to reach ten levels each. It means, it can only be upgraded to the next star if ALL components reach Level 10,20,30,40,50 AT the SAME time.

To unlock Tactical Supplies Skill, it requires 800 Star Points.


OTHER STATS

Upgrading the aircraft will also unlock special skills that can be used during rallies or defence.
Aircraft upgrades also provide extra bonuses when challenging the MAW or during JOINT Exercises.

AIRCRAFT USAGE

RALLIES

Rallies can use (1) Rally Enhancement, Two (2) Tactical Supplies, and Three (3) Protective Paint. The stats are provided by the skills stacked

Rally Leader will adapt Rally Enhancement Skills. Two Joiners can use Tactical Supplies and Three(3) Joiners can use Protective Paint.

DEFENSE

Skills need to be manually added or switch to activate. 

The wounded stats are accumulated stats from 3 (Protective Paint Skill) Rally Joiners. Rally Attack Amplification is a stacked stats of Rally Enhancement (Leader) and Tactical Supplies (2). This report is from rallying a settlement. 

JOINT EXERCISES

This event is the longest event I ever encountered in the State of Survival. This is pretty similar to MAW but is ATTACHED with aircraft upgrading. Lower levels will be easy but to clear higher levels, the player needs to upgrade the aircraft. Aside from that, the player also needs a fast hand, fast internet, a little strategy and probably a lot of PATIENCE. Also, this event is CONNECTED to your Aircraft Upgrade. In short, no matter how strong your account, there is only a limited level you can clear unless you upgrade your aircraft. Level 24+ will require a Star 2 Aircraft minimum.


  • Marches to the MAW, Proliferating Infected and others is fixed for 5 seconds regardless of location you port in the map.
  • Once caught in vines, march in clearing them will require 15 seconds.
  • Challenge timer: 1:30 minutes including the conversations of the heroes.
  • March Slots : 2
  • Event will use Plasma 8 , T11 Troops (300K) regardless of HQ LEVEL.

HOW TO PLAY THE CHALLENGE

1. Tap quick once it opens (normally sarge/Maddie blabber there) while they talk, the timer ticks.

2. Send two marches AT THE SAME TIME. Once it lands, jump. (Saves 5 seconds for return)

March round: 2-4-6-8 jump ( relocator refills every 15 seconds)

3. Wait for the infected to march FIRST before jumping.

4. Once the Sarge message comes out, jump. Stay away from the vines.

5. Do not bother hitting the Infected.

6. Set your formations and heroes.

7. Settlement Buffs work but there is only a minimal DMG boost. Do not bother

8. If you cannot clear a challenge, You can leave it for a day or two. Difficulty drops 2% daily for the first month.


HEROES AND TROOP FORMATION

To maximize your gameplay, you can set preset formations. To do this, once you clear a blue level, go back to that challenge and set formations. You can test different hero sets and troop formation that is suitable for your account build.

Personally, I use either Joker/Hankl/Luca (3/3/3) or Joker /Gen 9 (3/3/3) for my first march and Tweak/Magnus/Tina (3/1/6) for my second march. Not saying that this should be the standard but these are the sets that work well for my 3 accounts. You can play around with any Joker joiner but the best formation for Joker to work is surprisingly at 3/3/3.

HOW TO DO RAID

A lot are so confused with this. Players will get a free raid ticket daily ( see Orange box). These tickets stacks.

Players will get a daily FREE Raid Ticket. Do not get confused as this isn’t the same as Underground gameplay. There is only one (1) chance to raid a previously cleared colour blue level. This chance NEVER stack. Make it a habit to check for the blue with the MOST reward drop and use raid on it firstly after reset.


HOW TO SET RALLIES

Rally Leaders DEFAULT skill is Rally Enhancement. Joiners can add Two (Tactical Supplies) and three (3) Protective Paint. Skills need to be manually changed before sending a march.

Once the march is sent out, skill cant be exchange.

LEVELS

GREY LEVELS

These are the easiest level to beat. However, these once locked can’t be re-challenged.

BLUE LEVELS

Blue ones are a little harder to beat. These levels can be used for raids.

RED LEVELS

These levels are called EMERGENCY LEVELS. There is a countdown on when this is going to be neutralized.


WHY IT IS HARD TO BEAT LEVELS?

Like I said above, this event may be like MAW but the game is too smart to find a way to make sure the aircraft feature incorporates it with the event. Yes, indeed general stats, even talent setups, heroes, and troop formation are the based factors in beating levels but so are the special bonuses provided by the aircraft.

  1. Yes we shouldn’t have this event at all yet.
    They should focus on the actual problems in this game as new levels for trap, horde and solid match making for RR and SVS. The events we actually care about and that brings activity and commitment from our players.

    They give us weeks of Q&A while all in all in the back ground just pushing out this sort of new crap.

    They have learned literally nothing from the first protest.
    We need to do another bigger one, right now. I’m fully maxed, but I am not going to spend a penny on aircraft.

    1. I said today in GEN SOS that they cant blame players to get angry when this was tested a few times in PTR, Tested in Live server, and players gave their feedback yet they still pushed this. Nothing wrong adding new feature but releasing it when its still buggy and their UX isnt even stable just made the gaming experience worse.

      1. Yes, you are completely right..

        I was very busy this week, but I thought to myself at least I will try to see what the group event will be on weekend. But that is not even active yet, so why launch a half working event??

        What we need is events that we can play with our friends and fellow members or even state players (like it was with Maw, it was amazing as you could play the event cross-alliance). It breeds activity, fun and commitment of players to the game and their friends.

        Since months, the only things we get are all events that you play solo just for your self. The World Events, Joker Arena, Azurtane Heist etc etc all don’t need any coordination or planning wikth your people like. The only ones that are, are the original events and they are all needed long for upgrade (we have beaten trap now almost 6 months on max level and we are only in state 400s) and with RR and SVS they should make the matchmaking treshhold as such that first criteria is that the alliances are on same generation and then they need to take in account raid score. Some differences in raid score is not a problem, but fighting new heroes all the time is..
