    General Information

    Defeat the Black Light race as they attempt to summon a portal to unleash their might in the Eternal Black Light expansion! Are you up to the challenge to beat them back? There’s no time to spare!

    Collect the Eternal Fragments: You’ll need them to craft the Eternal CPU which you can use to open the Eternal Black Light Galaxy Gate in the X-BL maps.

    The Eternal Black Light Galaxy Gate will be implemented into our game as a permanent feature! You can craft the Eternal CPU in the Assembly with Eternal Fragments to be able to open the Eternal Black Light Gate (like you already know from the Quarantine Zone which needs to be opened with the Immunizer CPU).

    You can earn the Eternal Fragments by doing special quests as well as by killing INVOKE XVI and Mindfire Behemoth NPCs. You can also get them via Payment for a limited time.

    In the Eternal Blacklight Galaxy Gate, try to survive for as long as possible as the waves get harder and harder. You will earn different amounts of Blacklight Shards and a chance of Indoctrine Accelerators depending on how many waves you clear in the Gate. You can use the Blacklight Shards to craft the brand-new Unstable Modules in the Assembly!

    These Unstable Modules are randomly generated ship upgrade modules that provide buffs (and possibly debuffs) to random ships.

    In addition, you can also earn Indoctrine Accelerators from the Eternal Black Light GG. It can be used to upgrade selected items (lasers, rocket launchers, shields) which get new levels in the Assembly (17 to 20).

    To introduce this new Eternal Black Light Galaxy Gate to our game, there will be a special event with Blacklight Rankings, a Ship Boost event, a Battle Pass, and new items for the month of November!

    The Eternal Black Light Galaxy Gate


    To enter the Eternal Black Light GG, you need to use the Eternal CPU on an X-BL map. Once you enter the Eternal Black Light GG, you have one life to fight through the infinite waves that are getting more and more difficult. If you die, your ship will spawn back in your home base.

    You can also leave the GG and come back later to continue your fight. Inside the gate, you can gain Booster points from clearing certain waves. These points can be used to choose among different boosters that help you to fight your way through the waves which are getting more and more difficult.

    You can keep fighting in the gate until you lose all your life or until you leave the gate by yourself. When you finish the gate (by losing your life) you receive a reward based on how far you get progressed on the Eternal Gate.

    Important: You will only get the reward that is displayed for the wave you’ve done when you die (not all the rewards of the waves you went through before dying).

    WaveReward
    1 to 1010x Black Light Shards
    11 to 2550x Black Light Shards
    26 to 50 150x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    51 to 60500x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    61 to 101750 x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    102 to 1521,500x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    153 to 2033,000x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    204 to 2545,000x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    255 9,000x Black Light Shards
    + Chance to get Indoctrine Accelerator
    In the Eternal Black Light GG, you’ll find a new boss NPC called Strokelight Barrage which spawns the following new NPCs: Abide I, Steadfast III and Barrage Seeker Rocket.

    Fight the boss NPC Strokelight Barrage which spawns NPCs on the map. Once Strokelight Barrage’s HP are getting under a certain level, it becomes aggressive and starts to move. And also the NPCs that it spawns can be a threat to you… You’d better watch out!

    If you manage to destroy Strokelight Barrage, you’ll get a reward package with lots of useful items!

    The Gate Completion Rewards are based on how many waves you’ve cleared when you die in the gate.

    IMPORTANT: The rewards of the Eternal Black Light Galaxy Gate aren’t affected by Double Galaxy Gate Reward Days!

    Important Note: Uridium is capped to a maximum limit in the Eternal Black Light Gate. After earning a set amount of Uridium from the gate, Uridium will cease to drop as rewards within the Gate. All other rewards, however, will continue to drop.

    Boosters

    Collect Booster Points and spend them to activate boosters in the Eternal Blacklight Gate. The more waves you complete, the more booster points you can get to exchange them into boosters and to deal with the increasing difficulty of aliens.

    When you complete certain waves inside the gate and you reach a jump gate, you get booster points. Use them to select boosters that will be active for the current Eternal Black Light Gate run. Some facts about these boosters:
    - The boosters are only active while you’re in the Eternal Black Light Gate
    - The boosters are stackable
    - If you lose your all your lives in the Eternal Black Light Gate, the boosters reset
    - If you leave the Eternal Black Light Gate by exit portal and you come back later, the boosters are still valid when you re-enter the Eternal Black Light Gate
    - The Boosters tab in the Eternal Black Light Gate window shows a selection of random boosters for Rocket and Laser Damage, Laser accuracy, Shield, Hitpoints and Speed.
    - Every time you choose a booster, the random chance of getting the next one of this kind is getting lower.
    - Note: There’s a speed limit of 750 implemented into the game that might be reached by using the speed boosters. Once the limit is reached, it won’t raise anymore.​

    New Items


    Eternal Fragment
    The Eternal Fragment is a crucial component needed to create an Eternal CPU. The energies of the fragment allow the CPU to crack open space and time into the Eternal Black Light Gate.

    Black Light Decoder

    The booty key that you need to open the Black Light Crypts is called Black Light Decoder. It can be crafted in the Assembly.

    Unstable Modules

    Unstable Modules are ship upgrade modules that provide random stat changes to random specific ships. There are 2 series of Unstable Modules, the X1 series (providing lower beneficial stats changes) and the X2 series (providing higher beneficial stats changes).

    Objectives & Battle Pass


    When the event starts, there is a battle pass and new objectives available for players to complete. The objectives are similar to missions but you don’t need to accept them manually. The progress for the objectives begins automatically when the event starts. Completing these objectives gives you rewards and completing them with the Battle Pass even gives you better rewards.

    Together with the objectives, a “Battle Pass” is available in the shop. You can purchase it either with Uridium or via Payment. The “Battle Pass” gives you access to additional rewards on top of the original rewards that you get from completing the objectives.

    If you buy the Battle Pass after having completed some objectives, you need to claim the Battle Pass rewards of the already finished objectives in the Objectives Window in the game. If you complete the Objectives after buying the Battle Pass, the rewards will be booked automatically.

    New Ship: Orcus

    A new ship is available and can be received as a Battle Pass reward or via Payment.
    The Orcus is designed to battle and sustain against the notorious Blacklight aliens with its unique ability to Assimilate. The stat modifiers of all ship upgrade modules attached to this ship are doubled.

    Ship information

    · HP: 350,000
    · Nanohull: 350,000
    · Speed: 290
    · Laser Slots: 15
    · Generator Slots: 15
    · Special Slots: 3
    · Rocket Launchers: 1
    · Ship Modules Slots: 3
    · Cargo Space: 1,500​

    Skill: Amplify

    The stat modifiers of all ship upgrade modules attached to this ship are doubled. This includes buffs and debuffs. For example:
    - Attaching a ship upgrade module that has -5% HP will cause it to be -10%HP instead.
    - Attaching a ship upgrade module that thas +2% Shield will cause it to be +4% Shield instead.​

    Sum and stack all buffs and debuffs first, before applying this passive skill. For example:
    - If the ship upgrade module A gives +10% HP and ship upgrade module B gives -2% HP, then the final effect will be calculated like the following: (+10% - 2%) x 2 = +16% HP​

    Update Feb 16th, 2022: the Amplify ability has been reduced from 2.0 to 1.75 for the effect.

    Skill: Assimilate

    This skill absorbs 80% of incoming damage from NPCs as HP for a short period of time.

    The ship will take damage first, before healing itself. Eg.: There is 100 incoming damage. The ship will take 20 damage first, then heal 80 HP. If the ship dies at the point of taking damage before it can heal, then the skill is cancelled and goes into cooldown.
    - New target are only NPC ships
    - Duration: 20 sec
    - Cooldown: 540 sec
    - Cooldown only starts when the runtime of the skill is over
    - The skill cannot be cancelled by EMP-01
    - This skill can be prevented and interrupted by JAMX effect​

    New P.E.T. designs: Dusklight

    There will be 3 new P.E.T. designs:
    NameAvailable

    Your ship’s HP will not go below 1 for 10 seconds if incoming damage is dealt by NPCs. This tech has a cooldown of 30 minutes before you can use it again. This item will only be available during the accompanying event as event reward or via payment section.

    New Unstable Modules (event only)


    During the event that accompanies the launch of the new Eternal Black Light Gate, special Unstable Modules will be available via Battle Pass and Ranking Rewards. These Unstable Modules guarantee that a randomly chosen ship will definitely get one 10% stat modifier attached – and there’s also a higher chance than usual that Orcus or Centurion ship series are chosen!

    Overview of the Unstable Modules event series:
    NameDescription
