TOTAL DONATED SINCE THE START OF THE EVENT: 3,557,656,784
Every Beta Resource donated by any Pilot is counted towards the tiered community-wide achievement goal of building the Battlecruiser in Devil’s Tusk. Achieving the tiered goals below will unlock community-wide rewards.
Congratulations, Pilots! All 4 tiers have been reached! Let’s take another look at what’s unlocked at each tier:
[Tier 1] 2,500,000,000 Beta Resources donated: Monument in Copacabana (Already reached!)
With Tier 1 being reached, the Accord will be putting a monument in Copacabana to celebrate.
All present and future ARES Pilots will be able to interact with the monument to see a list of the names of all Pilots who have donated Beta Resources during the “Dawn of the Invasion” Resource Migration Event.
[Tier 2] 2,750,000,000 Beta Resources donated: Monument Upgrade + Buffs (Already reached!)
With Tier 2 being reached, the monument in Copacabana will be upgraded by the Accord to have an impressive statue immortalizing the ARES Initiative.
Additionally, when any Pilot interacts with the monument, they will gain a 5% buff to their out-of-combat Movement Speed for one hour (which can be renewed by interacting again after the duration) and only while they remain in Coral Forest.
[Tier 3] 3,000,000,000 Beta Resources donated: More Upgrades and Buffs (Already reached!)
With Tier 3 being reached, the monument in Copacabana will be further upgraded by the Accord to have an even more inspiring look.
Another buff is being added, too! Not only will any Pilot that interacts with the monument gain a 5% buff to their out-of-combat Movement Speed, but they’ll also gain a 5% buff to their max HP! Both buffs only last for one hour (which can be renewed by interacting again after the duration) and only while in Coral Forest.
[Tier 4] 3,500,000,000 Beta Resources donated: Final Upgrade and Increased Buffs (Already reached!)
With Tier 4 being reached, the monument in Copacabana will receive its final upgrade by the Accord – it will truly be an epic display to immortalize everyone’s valiant efforts in the fight against the Chosen.
That’s not all! The buffs mentioned above are being increased! When any Pilot interacts with the monument, they will gain both a 7% buff to their out-of-combat Movement Speed and a 7% buff to their max HP! These buffs last for one hour (which can be renewed by interacting again after the duration) and only while the Pilot remains in Coral Forest.
NOTE: The leaderboard rewards, monument, and any of the additional rewards unlocked will become available after the conclusion of the event.
Data current as of July 3, 2014 at 10:00AM PDT.
The names listed above for first through tenth place, in addition to the current progress on the community-wide reward, are also on display in the in-game dashboard. We plan to post a weekly update each Friday while the event is running via a blog similar to this, and update the dashboard every few days. Until then, keep donating those Beta Resources and we’ll see you in game!
