The Competitive Wargames Reputation

By Ambassador Kael
Wed 12 Apr 2017 09:30:00 AM PDT

Competitive Wargames were created as a measure of skill - a friendly way for members of the Alliance to prove their strength to one another while preserving peace and honor. Join now in an endeavor to show your worth and be rewarded with equipment befit for those willing to face the trails of combat.

This new reputation will become available with Season 13’s release and will feature all new traits, kit modules, space equipment sets and a ground equipment set.

Progression

Increasing your standing with Competitive Wargames will require the submission of Competitive Marks.

These marks can be earned by completing PvP and Competitive PvE matches.

Assessed Stratagems can also be earned by participating in the Advanced and Elite versions of any queued event which rewards Competitive Marks. High-end gear projects will require a small amount of Assessed Stratagems in order to claim the best Competitive Wargames equipment. They may also be submitted to the Competitive Wargames in return for Dilithium Ore.

Rewards

Competitive Marks and Assessed Stratagems can be submitted for both Reputation XP and new, high-quality gear acquisitions. Here are a few examples of the items that can be earned by advancing your standing with the Competitive Wargames Reputation:

Prevailing Regalia (Space Set – 4 Pieces)

Each piece in the Prevailing Regalia set has three different versions, flavored for Innervated (Damage), Bolstered (Support), and Fortified (Protection). These different items will have slightly different stats, depending on which version you obtain. Captains can mix and match each of these items and still receive the full set bonuses - for example, the Innervated Impulse Engines and Bolstered Deflector Array will provide the 'Well Rounded' bonus listed below when slotted on a ship. If you choose to obtain one version of an item, you will receive a discount on the other two. For example, obtaining the Fortified Warp Core will grant you a discount on the Innervated and Bolstered Warp Cores.

Prevailing Deflector Array Mk XII

  • Prevailing Deflector Arrays streamline defensive frequency output while reducing its electrostatic footprint; this results in improved Hull and Shield damage thresholds as well as increased stealth capabilities.

 

Prevailing Impulse Engines Mk XII

  • Prevailing Impulse Engines offer a balance of speed at all power levels while also supplying increased maneuverability when using auxiliary thrusters. Additionally, these engines have been modified to accept power overflow when using certain abilities, resulting in a brief overcharge to flight speed. During this process further excess is fed back into the system, decreasing the time it takes for career powers to become available.

 

Prevailing Resilient Shield Array Mk XII

  • Prevailing Resilient Shield Arrays have potent reactive capability. Built with coagulative energy properties, these shields have the potential to strengthen against sudden, strong energy based sources for a brief period of time. This property also has the added benefit of slowing down incoming Physical and Kinetic bodies, resulting in decreased impact damage.

 

Prevailing Warp Core Mk XII

  • Matter/Antimatter Core
    • The Prevailing Warp Cores increase a subsystem’s maximum power by 5. Additionally, the increased type of power now contributes to a resistance based on the flavor of the core.
      • Engine Power scales Control Resistance
      • Shield Power scales Shield Drain Resistance
      • Auxiliary Power scales Exotic Damage Resistance

 

  • Singularity Core:
    • Prevailing Singularity Cores increase a subsystem’s power levels by +5 to +15, based on your Singularity charge level. Additionally, the increased type of power now contributes to a resistance based on the flavor of the core.
      • Engine Power scales Control Resistance
      • Shield Power scales Shield Drain Resistance
      • Auxiliary Power scales Exotic Damage Resistance

 

 

Prevailing Regalia Bonuses

  • Well-Rounded (2 piece) – Passive
    • +Starship Hull Capacity
    • +Starship Control Expertise
    • +Starship Weapon Specialization

 

  • Coagulative Particle Resilience (3 piece) – Passive
    • When damaged by energy damage, gain +1.5 Bonus Energy Damage Resistance Rating for 1 second (stacks up to 10 times)
    • When at 10 stacks, gain +25 Bonus Energy Damage Resistance Rating for 5 seconds. Can occur once every 30 sec.

 

  • Overwhelming Tactics (4 piece) – Click
    • Target has -50% All Damage reduced for 10 sec
       

Obfuscated Strategist Set (Space Set – 3 Pieces)

  • Console – Universal – Covert Munition Deployment Console Mk XII
    • The Covert Munition Deployment Console was designed for missions that required added finesse when deploying ordnance behind enemy lines. Capable of both increasing Stealth and payload output, this dual purpose piece of equipment can prove deadly in subterfuge situations.

 

  • Tetryon Support Directed Energy Weapons Mk XII
    • Omni-Directional Tetryon Support Beam Array or Tetryon Support Heavy Turret
      • Tetryon Support Directed Energy Weapons have built in support functionality - while maintaining fire on a target, it causes their armament cadence to become more suppressed, resulting in less abnormal concentrations of firepower. Tetryon Support weapons reduce the critical hit chance and severity of targets they hit.

 

  • Modulating Competition Mine Launcher Mk XII
    • The Modulating Competition Mine Launcher was designed for maximum payload potential while offering the convenience of normal cadence payload deployment. To achieve this, the individual payloads were designed to modulate themselves post-deployment. This modulation takes time but results in a stronger overall output. The modulation has a built in safety override which will stop the output before it can reach unstable conditions.

 

Obfuscated Strategist Bonuses

  • Hidden Payload (2 piece) – Passive
    • Large Stealth increase based on throttle speed. The lower your throttle, the higher the stealth value remains.
    • +Starship Control Expertise

 

  • Master of the Mined (3 piece) – Passive & Click
    • +Quantum Projectile Damage
    • +Mine & Torpedo Resistance

 

Seeking Mine Subroutine (Click) 

  • Single target debuff ability that instructs all of your mines to slowly seek towards the affected target. If the debuff expires before arriving, the mines will stay where they currently are located. 

 

Duelist Regalia (Ground Set – 3 Pieces)

  • Duelist Polyalloy Weave Armor Mk XII
    • This Duelist Armor was built to rigorous competition standards and, like a great competitor, is able to adapt strongly when faced with an overwhelming threat.
    • Player receives a large pool of Temporary Hit points when taking damage while their health is below 50%, allowing the player to survive a sudden burst of damage.

 

  • Duelist Attenuating Personal Shield Mk XII
    • The Duelist Shield has built-in dynamic attenuation, which increases its wearer’s physical and kinetic resistance rating. It is able to store these vibrations for later use – if the shielding fails, its wearer gains a boost to all incoming healing.

 

  • Duelist Tetryon Decompression Pistol Mk XII
    • The Duelist Tetryon Decompression Pistol was designed as a miniaturized railgun; its damage is split between being Kinetic and being Tetryon. Due to this, its firing rate is slower than some other pistols.
    • The secondary fire uses charges and has a short activation time. Your maximum and starting charges will be 6 and will regain charges at a rate of 1 charge per 2 sec. Upon using your last charge, the secondary fire will go on cooldown for 5 sec and refresh all charges. This makes it ideal for all of the charges to be used at once rather than waiting on them to refresh.

 

Below are the set bonuses for the new ground equipment set:

Duelist Regalia Bonuses (Ground)

  • Heightened Focus (2 piece) – Passive
    • + Tetryon Damage
    • + Kit Readiness

 

  • Decompressive Deluge (3 piece) – Passive
    • Modifies the Secondary fire of the Duelist Tetryon Decompression Pistol so that the last charge of the ability will leave a debuff on the target that increases the recharge time of Kit Modules and Captain Powers. If the target is an NPC it will leave a Disable on it instead.

 

Secondary Deflector

            The Secondary Deflector is available in the three Secondary Deflector varieties, Inhibiting, Deteriorating, and Resonating.

 

  • Competition Secondary Deflector Mk XII
    • Enhances Sensor Analysis to decrease your target’s outgoing damage.

 

Heavy Escort Weapon

 

  • Flak Shot Artillery Mk XII
    • Flak Shot Artillery targets in a 360 degree arc and deals heavy kinetic damage to targets in a 45 degree arc after firing. A portion of this damage will bypass the target's shields. Due to the spread on Flak Shot Artillery, its maximum number of targets able to sustain noticeable damage is limited.

 

In addition to these equipment sets, advancing through the tiers of the Competitive Wargames Reputation will unlock access to a large array of Competitive exclusive consumables.

Competitive Consumables

New Short, Long, or Battle Duration consumables will be available through the Competitive Wargames Reputation. These consumables will offer options when facing other players competitively in PvP or Competitive PvE, and can only be used within those maps.

Examples of Competitive Consumables include a buff that causes future player takedowns to apply a heal to you, or a consumable that gives a short duration critical hit chance buff after a takedown. There are also consumables available to allow you to place such things as a Sensor Disruption Pylon. Once placed, this pylon will lower the enemy team’s Accuracy Rating and Perception Rating while increasing allies’ Accuracy Rating and Perception Rating. Additionally, it comes equipped with an area shield that negates most damage that comes from outside of it.

Three unique Kit Modules will also be included in the Reputation. Each is restricted to a single Profession.

Kit Modules

  • Tactical - Security Kit Module – Containment Field Mk XII
    • Launch a deploying Containment Field at your target. Once it reaches the target it snares them briefly and creates a Containment Field around them. If this barrier is crossed the target will be held temporarily and take heavy electrical damage.

 

  • Engineering - Fabrication Kit Module – Flare Mortar Mk XII
    • Flare Mortar creates a fixed position support platform at your location that launches blinding projectiles. In a larger area around the mortar, enemies have lowered Perception Rating and Stealth Rating, while allies will have increased Perception Rating and Stealth Rating and Dodge chance. Additionally, once every flare launches, a random enemy will be Exposed.

 

  • Science - Research Kit Module – Integrated Electrical Field Mk XII
    • Creates fixed position pylons at your location that, when near other pylons, create damaging electrical currents between one another.
