Evacuation Ship Locations and Order

There are no enemy bases on this map, and so, base analysis is not required. However, ships launch in a semi-random order, which requires you to push into small enemy camps.

There are a total of 9 ships present on the map. The locations of these ships is shown below.

Locations of Evacuation Ships

When playing on Brutal difficulty, Ship #1 is automatically destroyed at the start of the game.

Next, either ships 2, 3, or 6 are destroyed. There is a certain chance that certain ships will be destroyed. These chances are listed below.

Ship Chance to be Destroyed
2 40%
3 20%
6 40%

Next, either ships 4, 7, or 9 are destroyed. There is a certain chance that certain ships will be destroyed. These chances are listed below.

Ship Chance to be Destroyed
4 33%
7 33%
9 33%

At the start of the game, the ships are assigned to a launch priority. This is the order of beacons you will see on the map as you launch ships. The order is semi-randomized and is shown below. Note that if a ship is destroyed, it is skipped and the next one selected.

Order Ship(s)
1 1
2 3
3,4,5 2,5,6
2,6,5
5,2,6
6,2,5
6,7 4,9
9,4
8 8
9 7

Completing the Bonus Objective

Blightbringer Eradicator Eradicator

There are two bonus objectives on the map. The first one requires you to kill Blightbringer. Blightbringer has a parasitic bomb attack, so you'll want to pay attention if you choose to engage him with an air army. Ground armies are vulnerable to his spray attack, your constant attention is important.

The Eradicators are much more dangerous. One Eradicator has an air attack, which it targets using many circular markers on the ground. The other Eradicator deals damage in a straight line and can decimate ground armies. It is best to engage the Eradicators with air units to prevent losing your army.

The locations for BlightBringer (in yellow) and the Eradicators (in green) are shown below.

Timings

Note: Information on Tech and Strength levels can be found on the Enemy Compositions page.

There are three types of timings that are of interest in this mission:

The timings, Strength and Tech levels for the attack waves is shown below.

Wave Time Tech Level Strength Level
1 6:30 2 2
2 13:00 3 3
3 17:30 4 4
4 23:00 5 5
5 26:30 4 4
7 28:00 6 6
7 32:00 6 6

If ships are not launched fast enough, a ship will start to panic and force a launch. This forces players to play more aggressively. Launching a ship early will cancel that panic time. This can be useful for avoiding harder ships. The panic times are shown below.

Ship Panic Time
1 3:45
2 12:00
3 16:30
4 23:30
5 27:00
6 29:00
7 29:30

Claimer waves will target ships in an attempt to destroy them. The timings, Strength and Tech Levels of these waves is shown below.

Wave Time Tech Level Strength Level
1 8:00 1 1
2 15:12 2 2
3 19:18 1 1
4 19:24 1 1
5 26:00 4 4

Bonus objectives will spawn at 9:00 and 15:00. There is a 66% chance that Blightbringer will spawn first.

Spawn Points

All Attack and Claimer Waves spawn from the edge of the map. Attack Waves have three spawn points and Claimer waves have nine spawn points. This makes it extremely impractical to spawn-camp the spawn points to take out the wave before they reach their target.
