2 Nations , 1 war. You're fighting it.

The moment you join this game, you sign yourself in as a training pilot ready for combat.
This game takes you to a time where 2 factions are at each other's throat.
It doesn't take long, or all hell breaks loose.
As a training pilot, you start by picking your gear. There are 4 types of gear.






I gear aka Idle Sniper

The Speed demon of the game. Also specialized into air VS air combat.
Holding the skill of shooting multiple missiles at a target, its attacking power can be devastating.
Combined to holding the fastest engine in-game, this gear is one of the deadliest in the air.
Some weak points are low shield and low HP, but those are minor points compared to its devastating fire power.

B gear aka Brandy Bug

Specialized for air VS ground combat.
The B gear has the power to bring great destruction upon its enemy.
With the skill of being able to bomb enemy targets on the ground as well as up in the air, this gear makes itself an enemy to be feared. Great defense and a capability of devastating attacks, this gear lacks speed and may be a chosen target for I gears.

M gear aka Meadow Burgle

Specialized into supporting other gears.
The M gear is capable of dealing with both air and ground targets.
Also the only gear capable of healing and buffing their party members.
This gear has a great defense and is definitely not an easy target but its lack of attack power holds this gear from beating the front lines.

A gear aka Anima Mortar

Specialized into Ground VS air.
The A gear is capable of shooting other gears out of the sky with its powerful cannon.
Being an anti air unit makes it the perfect gear to counter I gears.
Their heavy armor makes them also a hard to defeat enemy.
Although having a heavy armor and high damage weapon, this gear lacks all chances of speeding away, as the A gear is the slowest of all.
Also the only gear capable of landing in every map and driving over the landscape.

After picking your suitable gear, you get trained for combat.
The goal in this game is, first of all, achieving lvl 11.
Once lvl 11, you have passed the training and you are to decide which faction to join.



The Factions:
Air rivals introduces you to 2 different factions.
First of all there is the Bygeniou Regular Army.
Second of all, there is the Arlington Rebel Army.


Both represent their own nation with their own maps.
Choosing 1 nation will result in losing all communication with the people who picked the opposing nation.
Each nation has its own equal share of maps that lead to a neutral map.
The game is divided into maps each connected with a warpgate in between.



Skills:
Every gear has its own set of skills, making the gear unique on its own.
Either skills are supportive / offensive or defensive.



The game:
In this game you are supposed to gain lvls. You gain lvls by shooting AI controlled creatures within the maps you are flying in. Every kill will gain you experience until you reach the next lvl.
Reaching the next lvl makes it possible to use new and better equipment.
Your opponent nation is able to enter ANY map from your side, as well as you are capable entering any enemy maps you wish.
You may choose to either defend your maps, or escape.
for the people who wish to just lvl-up, there are also channels for every map that are safe from war, meaning no enemy can enter those channels.
You are fully free to choose whether you go to combat or lvl-up.



War:
This game's main purpose is people to go to war with each other.
Wars can extend from small scale battles to battles up to 100 people when very populated.
Do not underestimate the scale of the battles, small wars could get very adrenaline rushing and mostly small battles start the big chain roll effect of gigantic wars such as defending your map.
Each kill goes to a nation count board.
Click the image to open in full size.




Every time the board reached the 100K, 200K, 300K, etc mark, a mother ship spawns.
Mother ship wars tend to be the largest scale battles in the whole game and only happen around 6 times max nation side.
Both nations spawn mother ships at those counts. The goal is either defending your own when the enemy reaches their 100K mark, or defeating your enemy's mother ship when your nation reaches their 100K kill count.

PVP:
For people who like to do PVP matches with a team, there is an arena included, that crosses all 3 servers of the game, making it able for players to challenge people from other servers nations.
Arena matches can go from 1 VS 1 to 12 VS 12.
Click the image to open in full size.



The map layout:
Every nation has an equal share of maps that are displayed in this full map.
Click the image to open in full size.



Events:
This game has many events supported by GMs and these events can be extremely fun seeing the amount of players that can show up. Even GMs can get surprised of the success. Events can differ from killing a GM to hunting bosses with the whole nation.
GMs decide the type of event being held.

Battle formation and brigade setup:
Players can fly into battle formations aka partys.
Each formation can be set into different styles for different type of battles or a different type of view.

Each player can also set up a brigade, aka guild, or join one. These players will fly under the same brigade tag and all kill counts from that player will be counted for that brigades monthly kills.





Personal note: This Review is fully written on 3 years of experience with this game. Nothing has been copy/passed or ripped from any other information source except some of the images provided. This game's former server was called Space Cowboy, and has been closed. The original server existed 2 years. Also big thanks to WNxKnife for providing several screenshots.
cheers, ~~Jehera ~~
