The Brothers Unite community tournament has also officially gone live along with the Warpath 5.0 update.

Warpath 5.0 Update brings exciting new features
A brand-new mechanism for upgrading Star Units is introduced in Warpath 5.0. Once a server has been operational for 180 days, the Prototype system is available. The newly added Modern Units can be leveled up by Commanders in this new upgrading system, opening up new unit kinds and battle mechanics.
The improved Tank Hunters and Main Battle Tanks, among other new unit types, include the Helicopter Unit and Medium and Heavy Tanks, respectively. In addition to the prototype system, the 5.0 update adds a first-person shooter mode that pits commanders against one another and heightens player immersion.

Brothers Unite community tournament is officially live in Warpath
Lilith Games is excited to announce the commencement of the Warpath’s Brothers Unite competition along with the release of this new content. The Best Commander, The Best Band of Brothers, and The Luckiest Commander are the three tiers of this community-driven competition. Rankings for the Best Commander event are completely determined by a player’s power level grind, and it starts when they check in to the game.
Players must pre-register in teams of two for the Best Band of Brothers event. Teams will be evaluated based on the rise in their in-game power level relative to the power levels of both team members at the event’s beginning. Final rankings will be determined by how much each team’s power level has grown at the conclusion of the competition.
Finally, mission success determines who qualifies as The Luckiest Commander. By accomplishing specified missions that are active throughout the competition, players can acquire Medals during the event period. One raffle ticket for the Prize Drawing will be available to participants who earn five medals. Rewards can include money awards, current-generation gaming systems, figurines themed after the Warpath, and in-game money.
