Spiders versus Scorpions event pits Combat Arms six million players against
each other in month-long war
In one of the biggest and most highly anticipated online first person shooter
(FPS) events, Nexon America's Combat Arms is preparing to open the "Spiders
versus Scorpion" event in mid-June. This event splits the entire player base of
the game -- more than six million registered users -- into two factions,
fighting through four rounds in hopes earning rewards and bragging rights as
Combat Arms the top guns.
Players can go to
http://www.spidersvsscorpions.com starting today to sign up for either
faction, Spider or Scorpion and receive 3 free rewards offered only during the
pre-sign up period.
The event will kick off on June 16 and consist of four week-long rounds with a
showdown weekend in July if both factions are tied in victories through the four
rounds. Winners of the rounds will be determined by which faction scores highest
for the round. Rewards will be given for all participants, but the best will go
to the faction that wins individual rounds and the overall event.
In December 2010, Combat Arms held this event and saw more than 3.3 million
battles in which there were 192 million kills recorded, that included 110
million headshots with the most battles taking place on the Junk Flea map. It
was a huge generator of EXP and GP, with 2.7 billion EXP earned and 3.6 GP
generated for all players participating in the event. This makes the "Spiders
versus Scorpions" events the biggest event for Combat Arms and one of the
biggest events for all online FPS' in North America.
"This is a huge event for fans of online FPS' fans in North America," said Nexon
America's Combat Arms producer Christina Lee. "We have the most guns, a huge
player base and a wide variety of game modes and maps for players to commit to
all-out war. We'll have some great prizes for the winners, but the best prize
will be bragging rights."
The factions each have their own story and motivation for going to war. The
Spiders are known for their stealth, use of technology and strategy and deliver
lethal attacks with cold calculation. Meanwhile, the Scorpions are hard-bitten
solders who believe in settling matters with a hard-word and a high caliber gun.
