Features

  • Now Accepting Legacy Council Applications
    • Do you love Suns? Got some great ideas to share? Do you work well in collaborating with a team? You may be interested in volunteering for the Legacy Council position.
      This is a commitment of at least 6 months where selected players will have the opportunity to work closely with the development team to shape the future of Legacy of a Thousand Suns.
    • We are looking for passionate players from different LoTS gameplay backgrounds who can provide thoughtful and respectful ideas and feedback.
      We will be accepting applications no later than Thursday, September 27 at 06:59 AM GMT (which would be Wednesday, September 26, 23:59 PST for the development team)
    • For more information, please see the official Legacy of a Thousand Suns post in this thread). We look forward to hearing from you. :)
  • 1 Week Left: Lunatic Lottery Vault
    • An all new Grab Bag is available in the shop, which contains new and powerful items to aid you in battle.
    • Please note that you have the chance to obtain the following from the Lunatic Lottery Vault: 1 Officer OR 1 Ship OR 2 crew OR 1 Utility OR 1 Unique Crew.
    • Contains two new officers: Lunatic Klib and Lunatic Snaprax.
    • Lunatic Klib will proc extra damage against Organic Humanoids and Mechanized raids, while Lunatic Snaprax deals extra damage against Organic Humanoids and Psychic raids.
    • The vault also contains 2 new crew members: Lunatic Cutter and Lunatic Llama, whose attack and defense stats increase from their appropriate synergy bonuses with either Lunatic Klib or Lunatic Snaprax being active in a ship.
      Do note that you will receive Lunatic Cutter and Lunatic Llama crew members in quantities of 2.
    • New utility – Lunatic Cria, with a chance to do proc damage against Organic Humanoids, Psychic and Mechanized raids only, while its proc power grows for every Lunactic Cutter, Lunatic Llama and Lunatic Cria items owned.
    • Luntic Lottery Ship is available, which is a powerful vessel that procs damage on an expedition level, and does additional proc damage against Organic Humanoid and Ship raids; proc damage increases when either of the Lunatic crew and officers are active in the ship.
    • There is a chance to acquire the following Unique Crew, which are Premium Items: Gunmaster Jessica, Quarg Ral Flek, and Captain ‘Ace’ Flashheart.
  • New World Raid: Cerebral Destroyer
    • Arms manufacturers are always keen to develop the latest innovative weaponry — products which might earn them a bigger chunk of the interstellar slaughter market and let them rake in the credits. But these days it takes a lot to make the galaxy sit up and take notice. If an up-and-coming company wants to grab headlines and play with the big boys like Terminus and Kill-Tech, they have to bring out something impressive. Something big. Something crazy… Like a giant, genetically engineered brain with psychic powers, mounted on a ship for use in space combat. At least that’s what one group of boffins came up with. However, the problem with crazy experiments is that they often have equally crazy consequences. In this case, the brain decided to assume control of the ship, blast the crew out of the airlocks, and take revenge on humanity for its creation. As usual, it’s up to you to fix this mess before things get any worse…
    • The Cerebral Destroyer will be available on Friday, September 21 – time range of his availability for that day will be sometime between the afternoon to evening GMT.
    • To help alleviate the server stress and ultimately lag, we will be releasing the world raid sequentially between the three platforms instead of simultaneously.
    • The order of the release will be Facebook, Kongregate and Armor Games.
      The release on each platform can be anywhere between 15-30 minutes apart, to ensure that our servers can handle all players across all 3 platforms.
      Stamina, Energy and Honor attacks are now available.
    • It is a 3 day long raid, categorized as type Colossal, Psychic, Mechanized and Ship.
    • The raid will drop Sian Tags on-hit, as well as a low chance to summon crew members who will lend you their Strength.
    • Only 2 tactics will be available for this raid, feel free to collaborate together and decide on the tactics for all platforms before its release date.
      Poster of loot and damage tiers will be posted shortly.
