    ===================
    Executive Summary
    What is the event about?
    Craft Astral CPU using the new resource Polychromium to enter Astral Ascension! Upon using the CPU, a gate will appear in the center of your home map at X-1. How far you are able to survive in Astral Ascension will determine the amount of Astralite ore you get, which may be used to exchange for various rewards.

    Where do I get Polychromium?
    Polychromium is available via Dispatch and Payment.

    General information
    The new Astral Ascension Update presents a brand-new game mode: When entering the Astral Ascension, you’ll start with a pre-configured ship. You need to fight through waves to obtain various rewards. You’ll be able to obtain equipment to augment your ship during this game mode and you will have to use your wits to get as far as possible.

    Craft Astral CPUs to be able to enter the new Astral Ascension gate from the X-1 maps. The Astral Ascension gate is a Galaxy Gate of 45 rifts. Each rift has 3 waves and each player only has 1 life.

    Before starting your fight, you choose from pre-configured ships and loadouts and you choose the type of reward that you would like to earn. Clearing each Rift rewards you with equipment to augment your ship. The further you go, the higher chance of better rewards.

    When you die, you will obtain the rewards depending on how far you made it to the end and then you spawn back home.

    The main reward is the new Astralite, a resource that can be used to craft Astral Booty Keys and Permit Plus.

    The Astral Booty Keys can be used to open the Astral Booty Boxes which can be found from existing maps and which will give you valuable resources as rewards. The new Permit Plus unlocks the next level of Retriever Dispatch (Tier 6) which yields an even greater quantity of resources per hire.

    Preparation phase
    Craft Astral CPUs from the Assembly using Polychromium. Polychromium can be obtained from Retriever Dispatch and Gate Dispatch. Enter the spatial rifts of Astral Ascension from X-1 Maps with the Astral CPU! Please don’t forget to activate the CPU via Hotbar to be able to use it!
    Choose from a set of pre-configured ships (every ship will be given 200 R-310 rockets.)

    Important: The ship that you select and all of the items equipped (including Drone) is „loaned“ to you for the entirety of your run. Once you are defeated, that same ship will NOT be available for you anymore. Instead you will be back to controlling your own ship. Any equipment obtained from this Astral Ascension is also loaned and cannot be kept outside of this game mode. You can however, obtain final rewards which will be given to you depending on how far you progress in Astral Ascension.

    Game Start
    1. Choose your gate and your Bounty: Choose one out of two gates. The gates differ in the rewards that can be obtained from the respective Rift. There are different possible types of rewards (called Bounties) that are randomly chosen for each gate. So you can chose between various types of Bounties which can be Weapons, Generators, Ammunition, Unstable Modules, or HP recover. All Bounty types (except HP recover) have 2 tiers – Normal and Frenzied.
    • A normal Bounty type means that there is a lower drop rate for strong, high level equipment

    • A frenzied Bounty type means that there is a higher drop rate for strong, high level equipment. However, the NPCs for the Rift will be stronger than normal. Selecting a frenzied gate will also score you slightly more points for ranking.
    1. Enter the rift and fight through 3 waves of NPCs
    2. Once all NPCs have been defeated, choose one out of 3 Bounties – the one that you choose will immediately be equipped on your ship (if your slots are full, it goes into the Astral Ascension inventory).
    Important:
    • Ammunition does not require a choice and a bunch of ammunition will be randomly given to the player.
    • Switching to Config 2 is not allowed in Astral Ascension. Even if you select the config button, you will still remain at Config 1.
    1. The next 2 gates appear as well as an exit gate in case you want to leave. There will be an manage tab in the event window where you can manage your equipment. If you leave the gate, you will be able to continue from where you left off, with the same configuration and HP remaining.
    2. Repeat the steps, there are 45 Rifts in total with a mini-boss at every 5th rift. Your HP recover by 50% after each mini-boss. At the last rift (45th), the Final Boss attends you! Defeat the Final Boss or die and lose. Afterwards, you get your rewards.
    Final rewards
    Fight through waves of relentless enemies and augment your chosen starter ship with bounties obtained from every rift cleared. The further you ascend, the more substantial your reward.
