We are proud to announce that the new Street Assault event is about to hit Crime City and have prepared some information for you.

How does Street Assault work?

http://i.imgur.com/rfCMmjd.png

Street Assault pits your syndicate against two rival syndicates in an intense war to control the street map. Each syndicate member deploys crew units of varying power to Nodes on a map that represent strategic locations of the area.

The ultimate goal - the syndicate with the most points at the end of the war wins.

All syndicate members are able to declare war. After declaring war, your syndicate is matched against two other syndicates of similar strength in a battle to conquer or defend the map Nodes.

The color of your syndicate during a war will be red, green or blue and is subject to change for each war.

Each war runs for 60 minutes. If war is not declared or if your syndicate is not matched before the last 60 minutes of the event, a war will not start.

Each Street Assault event features four Street Assault-specific crew units that can be deployed on the map's Nodes.

http://i.imgur.com/GHBNn7P.png

These crew units can be earned in other events or may be purchased for cash and gold on the Street Assault map screen during a war.

http://i.imgur.com/pODkVrV.png

The purchased crew units do not have attack or defense stats, as they are only used for Street Assault. Crew units have an exclusive "power" stat that is used during Street Assault.

While crew purchased with in-game cash will change from event to event, crew purchased with gold will not change. We do not offer refunds for crew purchased with gold, as they can be used in future events.

What are Deploy Points?

http://i.imgur.com/K70JjyN.png

Deploy Points equal to the power of each deployed unit are added to both the Personal and Syndicate Deploy Point scoreboards. These points are earned regardless of the win/loss status of any nodes, and the scoreboards are incremented upon deploy.

What are Node Control Points?

http://i.imgur.com/qIz9RCD.png

The Node Control Point value of each node on the playfield is increased by the power value of each crew unit deployed by all players to that node.

Node Control Points are earned by the syndicate that deployed the highest amount of power (Deploy Points) to each node at the end of each war. These points are awarded to syndicates (not individual players) and are scored at the end of the war.

What are Bonus Deploy Points?

http://i.imgur.com/WqUzJ3z.png

When a syndicate reaches a pre-determined milestone of total deployed power during a given war, that syndicate will activate a bonus. Once the bonus is activated, the points in both the Personal and Syndicate Deploy Point scoreboards are increased by the power value of the deployed unit multiplied by the bonus percentage.

How does scoring work?

http://i.imgur.com/TluaDM3.png

At the end of the war, Node Control Points for each node are awarded to the syndicate that deployed the largest amount of power to that node. Node Control Points and Syndicate Deploy Points are added to create the Total Points for each syndicate and determine the first, second, and third place finishers in the war. In the case of a tie, the tying syndicates share the lower finishing place.

Are syndicates locked during the event?

You cannot change syndicates during the Street Assault event. You can join a syndicate if you are not in one at the start of the event. You can leave a syndicate if you are already part of one, but if you leave your syndicate during the event, you will not be able to join another. You cannot be removed from a syndicate by its leader during this event.

How does the rewarding work?

Street Assault event prizes are given for syndicates placing first, second, or third in each 60 minute war, and one final prize is given for your syndicate's placement on the leaderboard. Rewards are determined by how many points you earned during that war, and are not part of a Tier System. You will not receive better rewards for defeating higher ranked or stronger syndicates.

Do I have to participate in this event?

No, this event is entirely opt-in, similar to Raid Boss and Battle for Empire City. However, in order to receive event rewards, it is necessary to actively participate.

How does the match-making work between syndicates?

Matchmaking between syndicates in Street Assault is similar to the matchmaking in Battle for Empire City. The system looks at the overall strength of your syndicate; the sum of your syndicate's power will be compared to the sum of the other syndicates' power when looking for potential match-ups. As time goes on without a match, the parameters will relax slightly.

They have this event in Modern War. Maybe I don't totally understand this event but it seems to have no relation to your regular stats. The syndicate that buys and deploys the most units wins. They give you some free one's but they can go fast especially if you are going up against gold spenders. You can use in game cash so I would guess there would need to be some analysis if the awards are worth the spending. Does anyone who plays MW have a different take.

Vile Lynn
08-28-2014, 12:00 PM
Thanks, Tadaah!

The cash units will be different for each event. Iow, cash units will have different powers and not reusable in future SAs like the gold units?

Is there going to be a 3-syn chat room like in MW for each SA battle?

Vile Lynn
08-28-2014, 12:07 PM
In MW it's basically: gold wins. Refilling is different, too. You refill the number of units to deploy which regens for free, but idk the regen rate.

I haven't noticed much strategy except for sniping nodes at the very end.
For free/cash syndicates: whoever taps fastest, wins.

Good information, but one of your screen shot shows 1,000,097,224 gold! Is that a screen shot from a player because it will cost over $53338518.61 with 20% discount and without discount $66673148.27. Totally unfair for any player.

Lmao! The fact that you said 'clearly' a test account made me crack up.

This looks like a cool event, but I thought you used items from your inventory that your 500 mafia don't use, so those items don't get wasted. Guess not.. still a cool event though.

This event makes no use of anyone's profile attack and defence, could you please explain the logic in matching syndicates based on overall strength?

Matching syndicates based on overall strength in an event designed with unique units with unique "power" stats does not sound like it makes any sense. This is just my opinion, but this sounds illogical and as of now appears to be a major design flaw. Hopefully it works out better in practice than it sounds in theory.

The way I interpreted it: GREE thinks syndicates with similar strengths have similar resourses for battle. IOW, golden syndicates would have higher stats than free syndicates. Does that make sense?

08-28-2014, 01:36 PM
Tadaah, do the different nodes have different values? .. ie is it more important to control multiple nodes, or have a high value in a single node?
at what rate do your amount of available deploys recharge? looking at the screen it appears the max is 250, and you can gold refill for 25 gold, just wondering how they recharge naturally, if at all during a given war.

colec023
08-28-2014, 01:46 PM
It seems that IPH and relative battle position should be what is considered in matchups as individual stats have nothing to do with the battles. Buy weapons and them deploy them. Atk and def stats of individuals is irrelevant.

Exactly, what is the point of Street Assault???
this seems like another way for gree to target Gold Users...im a light gold user but this just seems like an annoying event.....let alone all the splash screens that will probably happen

How about fixing CC and why it keeps crashing every time i try to click on an upgrading building to check the time left on it........Daily Crash count today-23x

Cash units expire after each SA event. There will be a global chat for each SA battle as well.

They will available for purchase during the event.

Tadaaah thanks for amazing info , but it would have been great if u had posted something related to gold sale, even if u had said no sale , or u dont know or 20% sale or 40% sale , that would have been a complete info , nevertheless thanks for sharing the SA guide before the event had started




one question - suppose if we dont join one battle , and our team comes first in that battle , does the whole syn gets reward for that battle or only those who joined the battle ?

Any chance we get some info on the per unit price of each as well as the cost of the gold units....would really help us create a gameplan.

BrisingrBoss
08-29-2014, 01:03 AM
if it follows MW i would bet 100 of the most expensive cash unit will cost about 56 mil. seems accurate though as the halfway unit shown on demo costs the same as in MW, which is kind of bad because We havent had the time to work up the same kind of iph available on MW

I see some of the top 20 syndicates got to beta test this event. Not only do they have the advantage of experiencing this event before the rest of us, but they got to keep the major prizes awarded in the beta test! I saw these items in rival inventories today:

Battery Battle Defenders 487277/406863
Battery SMG Elite 311130/380270
Battery Battle Harness 246780/370170

Are we in danger of losing prizes from past events, and seeing our stats drop by millions? I heard that kind of thing was happening at MW.

08-29-2014, 11:52 AM
Is there an individual breakdown, like in the "Battle for Empire City", to see who contributed the most to the syn total?
If it's like MW, under the Leaders tab you can see how many total deploy points each syn member has made. It's overall though and not broken down per battle.

Vile Lynn
08-29-2014, 12:16 PM
Correction: Only Officers and Leaders can declare.

Weasel
08-29-2014, 12:52 PM
This is a brand new event, why was my deploy bar only 177/250 at the start?

5 minutes to regen ONE deployment is insane. It should not require 20 hours and 50 minutes to refill the deploy metre.

The cost of the cash units is insultingly cheap. Raise the price 10x at the least.

As I expected, matching syndicates based on overall strength is a major design flaw. Syndicates that rank in the top 150 during the Battle for Empire City event should NEVER see syndicates that rank in the top 20.

Vile Lynn
08-29-2014, 01:22 PM
There needs to be a better way to buy units.
As far as I can tell, we can only buy a specific unit after we are out. This is not efficient.

Can you please put then in the store like MW?

WTG Syndicate (624475065)
08-29-2014, 01:35 PM
That is unfair and unjustified, the strong get stronger and the lower teams have no chance to improve or catch up with them. Just goes to show that gold (or money) speaks in this game more than fairness.

What's up with the inflated scores on the leaderboard? Our real total score is displayed at the top left of all battle screens. Every battle, win or lose, the leaderboard is adding our total score to our last leaderboard total.

There's no way to tell where our real score ranks and the leaderboard scores are meaningless.

What's going to happen here? Please comment Tadaaah.

Also wondering if there is ever going to be a winners list for street assault simaler to battles "3 day and 24/11hr battles" if anyone can inform me of such thread would be appreatiated!!

What happened in the last hour?

We declared before the last hour of the event with plenty of time for a match and full battle, but we sat there until the end of the event with no match!

It was very frustrating. Most of us had saved our deployments anticipating a last match. While we waited, we dropped put of T250. :mad: :p :rolleyes:

Not that I like this event at all, but I like my syn and won't sit them out.
If this was an indy event, I would have passed completely.
I play these apps for fun, not to be pissed off by GREE's incompetence which is the reason I stopped playing KA. Don't KA CC.

I'm still waiting for my 25 gold back for miss-tapping a "refill" for a measly 25 (lol!) deployments. (You call 10% a "refill"? Whatever.) The refill button needs to be fixed with a confirmation or moved or something! I was being careful and still miss-tapped! I wonder how many others used gold unintentionally.

TBH, I can't think of one good thing about this event.
I'm sure your beta testers loved their freebies.
Sorry GREE.

09-01-2014, 05:17 PM
I personally liked the event, but had a similar experience. My syn declared with 1hr 11min remaining, and didn't get matched. When we got to the 1hr mark, the message came up saying that it was too late to battle. We basically had to all sit out the last hour...... People lost rank and dropped individual prizes. In addition, people who had spent gold to recharge deploys, or bought cash weapons, to prepare for what should have been our final battle, all wasted their CC money and/or gold.
