Gigantic 102: The Power Race

THE POWER RACE

 

At its most basic, most fundamental, most "break-it-down-to-a-single-mechanic" form, Gigantic is a power race. Almost *every* mechanic in the game is built around the effort to power up your Guardian – or inadvertently aid the enemy as they power theirs – and learning to win the race is key to ensuring that you achieve victory in every match you play!

In the power race, the first Guardian to reach 100 power rampages across the battlefield to strike down the enemy Guardian, rendering them vulnerable and providing you with a brief window when you can damage them. This is the *only* opportunity you’ll have to hurt the enemy Guardian - the key to winning the game - so learning how to power up your Guardian before the enemy powers theirs will often mean the difference between victory and defeat.

 

GATHER POWER

 

POWER is what gives a Guardian the strength they need to subdue the enemy Guardian and make them vulnerable to your attacks.

Power can be collected in a number of ways:

  • Enemy Player Kills = 10 Power
  • Young Creature Kills = 10 Power
  • Adult Creature Kills = 20 Power
  • Orb Captures = 20 Power


Gain as much power as possible while preventing the enemy from gaining power.

ADVANCED TIP:

Summoning creatures on the capture points around the map not only provides you protection, but is a great way to consistently gather power. Most creatures will automatically capture Orbs for your Guardian!

 

 

ATTACK THE GUARDIAN

 

The first team to reach 100 power will cause their Guardian to rampage across the battlefield!

  • The rampage takes about 20 seconds. Use this time to position yourself for the attack.
  • The rampaging Guardian will pin down the defending Guardian. Use this opportunity to deal damage to the enemy Guardian's weak point.
  • Doing enough damage will inflict a WOUND, removing one of the three hearts from their healthbar.


The enemy Guardian will only be vulnerable for about 20 seconds after the rampage has taken place, so be sure to use your time wisely.

 

ACHIEVE VICTORY!

 

Wound the enemy Guardian times to win the match!

  • Don't let a rampage go to waste! Try to deal as much damage as possible to the enemy Guardian.
  • Before the battle is over, the Guardians will call for a final CLASH. This is when comebacks happen!


Time to get out there and join the battle! 

ADVANCED TIPS: 

  • Follow your Guardian! If they're moving to attack the enemy Guardian, be sure you're close behind so you're ready to attack.
  • Stay with your team! Work with your teammates to out-maneuver and dominate your opponents.
  • Defend your creatures! Don't let them get picked off.
  • Fight together, gather power, and play to win!
