The Alerts is a dynamic event system. When an Alert is triggered on the continent, you can press «Show Score Screen» key (Tab ↹ by default) to see objective of the alert.

Upon completion of the Alert, ISO-4, Certs and potentially cosmetics or boosts are awarded to all online players depending on their empires' performance and for how long a player is there for the duration of the Alert.

Other alertsEdit

These Alerts can be triggered on all continents, with the exception of the Tech Plant Alert, which is not triggered on Esamir, while Warpgates are charging.

If a faction captures all relevant facilities, they will automatically win the Alert. If not, the experience rewards will be distributed in proportion to each factions' control of the objectives in question.

Ongoing AlertsEdit

All players within the specified continent gain the +30% XP participation bonus. When the Alert ends, players gain ISO-4 and cosmetics depending on how their faction performed and how long the player participated in the alert. The ISO-4 given to a player is relative to their time spent in the alert. Players are only eligible for cosmetic rewards if they participated for half or more of the alert.

If a faction triggers and wins the alert, they gain 300 ISO-4 and a random cosmetic or boost. The two other factions only receive 50 ISO-4.

If a faction triggers and loses the alert, they gain 50 ISO-4. The faction that had the most territory when the Alert ended receives 100 ISO-4, but the continent remains unlocked. The remaining faction also receives 50 ISO-4.
