FACE OFF -BEFORE EVENT

7/9/15

Commander, I've received an unusual message. it's some kind of warning about Blood Amber, though I haven't been able to decipher the details yet. The sender calls himself Algol, but I believe that's just a pseudonym.

Once I've got more information, I'll send it your way.

FACE OFF -BEFORE EVENT

7/11/15

I am Algol. I must warn you about Blood Amber. It calls to you, but you must not listen! Larus is the deceiver.

Amber is a curse. It must be destroyed for the greater good. The incident is where it all began. "They" are hiding in the dark. If you follow Larus, "they" will see you.

Remember, Larus is VEGA. He will betray you.

FACE OFF -BEFORE EVENT

7/13/15

Larus Here, you might have received an odd message recently. It's nothing to worry about, just an old enemy of mine who's lost his way. More importantly, I've heard reports that VEGA intends to increase activity in this sector. They're obviously looking to gain control of the Blood Amber we've been collecting, but that's not going to happen.

If they're carrying anything, make sure to bring it to me.

FACE OFF -BEFORE EVENT

7/15/15

Commander, I've been doing a bit of research. There actually was an accident in Beta Persei a few years ago, caused by VEGA. It might be what Algol is talking about. I can confirm that Blood Amber was involved. You'll have to decide who you trust more. Larus has helped us so far, but he did work for VEGA Security. On the other hand, we have no idea who Algol really is.

It's your decision, Commander - choose wisely. Face Off begins in less than 24 hours.

Description[edit | edit source]


The mysterious Algol makes a plea to the rebels: abandon Larus and his quest for Blood Amber. The rebels ignore him.
  — In-Game Description 

Face Off is the 10th major event in VEGA Conflict and the 2nd to feature a carrier as a hull prize. This event is sort of special, as it's the first where you're allowed to have a partial say in terms of the event. You are allowed to ally yourself with either Larus or Algol, which will affect how the storyline of VEGA Conflict plays out and the fate of Algol or Larus. Larus ended up winning Face off.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This was the first "Choose your side" Event.
  • This was also the first event to feature Vsec's Valkyrie Carrier.
  • Many low and mid level players utilized the exploit of using 6 instant genesis cruisers to kill the Corinthian Cruiser as it had the most health weightage in the fleet, and snagged as many 55s as they could, leaving the high level players annoyed at what they were doing.
  • The Top Prize, the Ragnarok Carrier, has been asked as a classic prize the most because of the Agility support field it possesses which makes it a must have for farming, right up until the Dominion Carrier was released a year and a half later.
