    And so it beings. The Steelbirds were only the beginning. The robots seem to have refitted and retooled the War Titan Typhon that crashed into Hadesheim six years ago.

    Satellite surveillance was blanked momentarily by electro-magnetic pulses from Hadesheim, and as they came back online, infrared photography revealed new structures under the cloud cover of the crater. Some of them were active, launching objects in suborbital mid-range trajectories on Eudoria.

    Colonel Briers in Port Atlantis has confirmed that CDF and CFA will cooperate to take the fight to the Steelbirds. He also hinted that CDF is developing a strategy to investigate the crater and the mysterious drops over Eudoria, but as they are unfinished, CDF does not want to reveal them at the moment.

    New Features
    include both seasonal and permanent Iron Challenges, story missions and a mining challenge. And last but not least, Shared Loot! Our new feature allows us to share loot from event mobs. The feature, if activated, splits loot among everyone that inflicted damage on the mob similary to the rule "Damage: Stack Share". Team loot rules are ignored for these mobs. We have activated shared loot on Steel Bird Elite spawns for this event.

    During a routine patrol, unit Alpha-37 discovered a group of dead civilians near Billies Spaceship Afterworld. Aware of the reports of non-functioning revival terminals, the field commander decided to investigate, hoping he would be able to collect information about why these civilians were not revived at the nearest revival point. Although the unit was unable to collect any data, the mission can be considered a success, as they managed to locate and repatriate one settler, whom they found hiding in the nearby hills.

    The civilian has been identified as Jerry Wollo Wollongong, who has no military record, but who has fought in self defense during the last robot wars. Contrary to what one would expect of a veteran of earlier wars, the civilian had not managed to maintain his calmness. Present military personnel reports that the civilian was panicking when they discovered him, and even tried to attack on soldier in an attempt to escape. Paramedics administered some tranquilizers and the civilian was transported to the nearest CDF Intell base where he spent a day in the sickbay to recover. After he was released by the Hospital Commander, he was requested to report at the interrogation room for a debrief.

    Interrogation report

    File PC/CDF/RX/7463-4
    Subject: Jerry Wollo Wollongong
    Interrogation performed by: Maj. xxxx xxxxxxxxx
    Transcript by: Cpl. xxx xxxxxxx

    Interrogator: Mr. Wollongong, how are you feeling today
    Subject: ....

    I: Mr Wollongong? Do you hear me?
    Transcriber: Civilian acknowledges that he is aware of interrogator by nodding.

    I: Are you feeling better today?
    S: I guess....

    I: You guess...? How so?
    S: Can't be worse... can I?

    I: Can you tell me what happened?
    S: ...

    I: Do you remember what happened?
    S: I am not sure...where am I?

    I: You are safe, Mr. Wollongong, you are in a CDF base. We picked you up two days ago over at Billies. Do you remember that?
    S: Billies.... billies.... oh.... oh my god... (silence)... they are dead...? Aren't they?? They are all dead!
    T: Subject puts his head on the table, covers it with his hands and cries. After about 5 minutes, he appears to recover from these emotions again. Interrogator hands him a tissue to dry his tears.

    I: I am afraid they are, Mr. Wollongong, I am afraid they are. Did you know these men and women?
    S: *sniff* Well.... yeah... we'd been hunting for a while together, and you know how these hunts are. You have to work together closely to deal with nature around here.... this... creates a bond... you know? Like brothers in arms.

    I: I see. Mr. Wollongong, you were found in near Billies. Could you tell me what you were doing their?
    S: Well, we were looking for new trophies. You see... we were doing those...uhm...missions... for the CFA. You know, controlling wildlife by selective culling? We had been given multiple assignments... daikibi, argonaut, cornuns... we were supposed to kill a large number of those, so we were looking for new and rich habitats.

    It went quite well... until.... until.... oh.....

    T: At this time, the subject turns pale and looks around frantically. Coincidentally, a VTOL just flew by. The sound of the jet engine seems to have triggered something which caused the subject to panic. Subject jumped up, knocking down the table, and ran to the door. The subject was intercepted by guards, and was administered tranquilizers again. The interrogation was continued the next day, in the presence of a psychiatrist.

    I: Mr. Wollongong, do you think you can tell me about what happened before we found you?
    Psychiatrist: Please try to ask specific questions
    I: Mr. Wollongong, do you remember that we found you?
    S: Yes

    I: Do you know when that was?
    S: A few days ago, I think... I don't sleep well. So I am not sure.

    I: You don't sleep well?
    S: I have dreams... horrible dreams... it's like... like...
    P: You do not have to answer if you can't...
    S: I can, and I will... (silence).. I have these dreams..two of them. If have this flashback to what happened... I see us happily through the woods..then mechanical noises...we look around..nothing...and then, from the sky...'s horrible... I see Hellen... she was so beautiful... We had just agreed to go on a date once we'd be back in town, and after we had taken a shower... she was cut into pieces by a laser (silence, some tears)... I see Benjamin dodging a bullet, only to catch a grenade... they are dead... all dead... and I am surrounded by these bots...they don't kill me, for some reason...

    and there is this other dream... I am ... I am a robot... I see what the robots see. I see their army, their leaders, their plans. God, these horrible plans. I can hear the bots speak with eachother, and I speak with them. Do you know that old movie they excavated on Earth a decade ago? I think it was called... Star Track or something...where there is a species which consists of individuals who are all part of the collective mind...? It's like that.

    When I sleep...they talk to me... it's terrifying... and if it is true...

    we are going to die. All of us...


    P: Calm now, Mr. Wollongong...Calm now

    At this moment, the subject loses his calmness and starts panicking again, attacking anyone nearby. The subject had to be subdued and is currently incarcerated.

    EBN: Ominous Surveillance Photo
    After a mere day of investigating the recent Robot movements, the Task force with Colonel Briers at the lead have come across what they think may be a break in the case.

    Report says that late last night a concerned colonist handed over a new device, which had been extracted from a Steelbird near the Hadesheim crater. After careful examination of the device, CDF were able to extract some information in the form of a photograph.

    The Task force is now focused on identifying the structure pictured.

    EBN: Task force on Robot Sightings

    Calypso Defense Forces have assigned a taskforce under the leadership of Colonel Briers to investigate the recent Robot presence, hopefully providing intel that will lead to knowledge about their next move.

    “It is almost impossible to stay ahead of the Robots” said Colonel Briers after the announcement of the taskforce at CDF HQ, “We need to get into their heads. Needless to say, it’s a tough job. But with such a strong taskforce of brilliant minds, I remain positive.”

    Lately, robots have been on the prowl near Port Atlantis and Billy’s Spaceship Afterworld, but it looks like they are now regrouping outside these newcomer-heavy areas. However new sightings have been made of differing generations of Coordinators, Steelbirds, Defenders and Jamraiders around the Hadesheim Crater. Colonel Briers and the CDF taskforce ask the good colonists of Calypso to stay alert and report any anomalies of robot behavior.

    Robot War Log Entry #1
    Personal Log: John Stave Petty
    Ser Nr:
    Rank: Captain
    Unit: 1st Bat. Calypso Desert Rangers

    Location: Fort Fury CDR HQ

    Hello Calypso, this is Stave Petty reporting from Fort Fury, as you may know I've been following the robot war some and I know quite a bit of whats happening here. That being said I have received some intelligence from EBN and a source of mine that wishes to stay anon.

    As you may or may not know, recently the robots have been experimenting with organic computing in order to evolve and become smarter and invincible, and indeed have carried out a number of tests, i believe those what those tests started are far from over. As we know, new flying robots have began to attack Billys Spaceship Afterworld and a popular party spot down on a island near Port Atlantis.

    As well as this the mysterious RX units continue to lurk around, with their somewhat friendly approach towards us. One has also actually began reporting on this very site during her investigation into the way humans think.

    As we know CDF lay claim that they are indeed still our enemies and thus it would be treason to work with them, but there appears to be some kind of cover up going here. As we all know, they were originally manufactured by the Exodus space station as soldiers to fight the great war. How they went from that, to enemies we still don't know. Perhaps we will get answers soon.

    Well things are about to escalate, my sources tell me something is coming on the 9th of November, what i believe to be the result of the hydra tests. My source that wishes to stay anon has told me he has evidence suggesting our beloved ex capitol Hadesheim is going to play a part in all of this.

    The source of mine that wishes to stay anon sent me a report, and in their report they included this rather interesting photograph:

    The intelligence they provided suggests the robots that currently are active inside the crater are excavating the Hadesheim ruins, or something of that manner, which will result in the titan of war that crashed and that is left of Hadesheim to rise from the ashes in some form. How legitimate this intelligence is i am unsure at this time, but I'm sure we will find out very soon.

    If this indeed is the case, perhaps they are trying to secure a robot outpost on Calypso, a foothold, they've always been very interested in that area.

    That being said whatever happening, whatever is being planned, we cant afford the kind of screw up we had during the Hydra tests. Yes they are going to try to outsmart us, yes they will play tricks on us to try and beat us. But we need to remember who we are, what side were on. We created this menace, some virus caused them to turn evil, and its now our responsibility as mankind to stop it.

    stay tuned for any updates during this hard time,
    We shall see what is to come
    - Stave out
