Continent LockingEdit

Capturing all contested territories in a continent will provide a temporary bonus to the controlling empire:

  • Amerish — Allows base generators to regenerate 5 health per second when destroyed.
  • Esamir — Allows allied control points to increase infantry shield capacity by 50.
  • Indar — Allows facility turrets to fire for much longer before overheating.
  • Hossin — Allows ammo resupply towers/pads to repair Vehicle/Aircraft.

See Base Capture Mechanics for capturing individual territories.
