Hi HWS Community,
the last weeks it got bit more silent - it helped me a bit to recover and continue pushing HWS and Empyrion for you! So here we are with a quite decent patch
HWS Connect Stimpacks
While we are working in the background on a big “HWS Skilltree 2.0” patch, we couldn’t resist to give you a brand new HWS Connect feature called HWS Stimpack!
You have too much credits but always bothered with your Player stats? No more!
Boost your Health, Food or Stamina to max. 10 000 to survive the next adventure for sure!
HWS Stimpack is available only in HWS Connect now!
HWS Supergates are 13 months old and gained massive popularity around the whole game. They give you a very special ability to travel through the Universe with your ships in a different way than the regular “fixed” “K-Warp”.
However, to push Supergates to its fullest capabilities we always offered them free for you!
The Elemental Galactic Services released a new finance report and identified a big gap
in their financial network system. With a vote of 346:1 a decision was made that the usage of Supergates will cost Credits and HWS RP in the future.
We obey the order of EGS but implement the new reform in a slow incremental step to the HWS Community.
The first Supergates which will cost 10 000 credits and 1 HWS RP per usage are the Supergates in Eton System, Nova and Titan System.
New HWS Patreon Tier: “HWS Astral”
In the deep of the HWS Universe there are creatures almost nobody have ever seen. HWS Astral’s are the fundamental in a long history of the past and future of HWS.
We are proud to announce a new HWS Patreon Tier for $70.
This HWS Patreon Level is somewhat special though and needs further explanation:
It is ONLY meant for incredible generous players out there who want to support HWS from the bottom of their heart without asking anything back in return!
It is in limited amount available of 7 and we can’t resist to thank those people with a little gift from our side: the Astral Supergate:
Only HWS Astral’s can use this Personal Supergate. It has the special convenient attribute to be placed on ECC and link to your other Astral Supergate in another PvE Playfield.
- HWS Astral Patrons get automatically all lower Tier rewards like creating the HWS Meta Planet, the 30% Discount on HWS Garage ships and Support Packages, etc.
- Astral Supergates are not available in PvP playfields!
Eton 2.0 Event
After years of struggle, looting and deformity, the planet Eton has changed dramatically. The once vegetate landscape gave way to a desert of exploitation with fatal consequences. Infiltration and destruction forced the Government of HWS Metropolis to call for arms by EGS and the Aliens. Working on a colossal and advantage Shield System to protect the Capital of Eton: Metropolis.
Eton 2.0 is a reworked version of the popular PvP event on HWS.
It addresses couple of “issues” after months of observations.
- The original idea is now more enforced: you have to fight your way through the HWS Metropolis by foot! Will you follow the path of the Warrior or keep the path of Chaos and Destruction?
- The dark red area in the Crater is bedrock and forces you to play your
cardsCores on the table
- Placed Deposits in diggable Biomes
- Increased Event reward:
- From 100k credits to 250k credits per Player Kill
After lot of feedback and discussion with Eleon we have now the ability to change the drop rate of ores while drilling.
As a very gentle change I increased the output of Gold as following:
- Material changed from medium to hard
- Ore drop chance boost from 20% to 25%
- Ore drop amount from 1-3 boost to 1-4
The long term intention is to make Gold an ultra slow diggable resource material but increase the profit you can make out of it. That way we keep the terrain clean performing but boost the output than before even.
HWS Garage Ships coming
