Since last Friday, ARES Pilots have been donating their resources to the Accord to help fund the plan to strike back at a Chosen stronghold. While there is still a long way to go, word has been received that 73.6% of the amount of resources needed to build a Battlecruiser in Devil’s Tusk have been received. To ensure that the minimum amount of resources needed to complete construction is secured, the Accord is offering more rewards to their top donators, as well as all ARES Pilots.
Hello Firefall Fans!
As announced here last Friday, our “Dawn of the Invasion” Resource Migration Event is live. While we announced the various personal rewards available, and noted that we’d share our first leaderboard update/rewards information about a week into the event (today), we also wanted to share that we have a special community-wide reward planned that has a tiered achievement goal. Before we jump into those awesome details, let’s take a look at the leaderboard rewards and current standings.
Each of the one-hundred (100) Pilots on the Leaderboard who finishes in the top 100 will receive the following:
- "Hero of the Accord" title for use in-game and on the forums
- New forum avatar border showcasing their heroic effort to the rest of the community
Each of the ten (10) Pilots on the Leaderboard who finishes in the top 10 will receive the above, in addition to the following:
- Custom personal title*
- Work with a designer to create an “Epic” rarity weapon for one of the 5 archetypes that will then be put into the game for anyone to find and use*
The one (1) pilot who finishes in first place on the Leaderboard will receive all of the above, in addition to the following:
- Custom warpaint*
- The winner chooses a name and describes what colors they want, we’ll make it for them and give it to them as an unlock. They get a truly unique warpaint that no-one else gets.
*Guidelines/ restrictions may apply (i.e. they need to be appropriate)

TOTAL DONATED SINCE THE START OF THE EVENT: 2,577,547,033
(Not taking into account the first few days of the event, as many deposited everything they had at once, an average of 75+ million Beta Resources are being donated daily.)
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.
[Tier 1] 2,500,000,000 Beta Resources donated: Monument in Copacabana (Already reached!)
With a tremendous outpouring of support in donating Beta Resources, Tier 1 has already been reached! As a result, 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 (You’re close to it!)
Once this tier has been reached, the monument in Copacabana will be upgraded by the Accord to have an impressive statue immortalizing the ARES Initiative.
That’s not all! 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: REWARD CLASSIFIED (Will be revealed in the leaderboard blog update following Tier 2 being unlocked.)
[Tier 4] 3,500,000,000 Beta Resources donated: REWARD CLASSIFIED (Will be revealed in the leaderboard blog update following Tier 3 being unlocked.)
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 June 20, 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!
