Description[edit | edit source]
Arms Race is the 8th feature event of VEGA Conflict.
This event is the first to feature ships in the event fleets with extended range, making battleships the only ones capable of outranging them.
Players found a way to earn easy event points by killing the 2 Corinthian cruisers and eagle frigate and then leaving the rest of the fleet, giving roughly 22k points if done on a 55.
This is the second event to feature the Ragnarok Carrier, and the first time both sides can use carriers to fight each other.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Arms Race is the 8th major event to occur in VEGA Conflict and the first to release a carrier-class ship as a reward.
- This event is unique in that it is the first to feature ships with longer ranges then what is normally obtainable, making them near impossible to kite or out-range. This event was also the first to feature carriers with Squadrons that were near impossible to kill because their health was increased massively.
- KIXEYE stated that the bug caused in Riot 5 (which angered many players) was because of a bug that caused the range extension to go into effect too early, making the Riot much harder than usual and causing outrage on the forums.
