Delta T follows a unique ranking system where rank in the game translates into respect in the real world amongst the Delta T community.
Ranks are awarded based on the top percentile of players in the region. The higher your rank in the local gamer community, the more other players will look up to you.
The Rank correlates to the Respect you hold in the community. For any segment, the total number of ranks would be limited to 8, which implies that all new players start at rank 8 and can be at a maximum of rank 1 at the most at any given time. The rankings are calculated on a weekly basis against the average of the respect held by the user every week.

Respect is dependent on actions, which create a positive or a negative  impact for the Megacorp.

You can earn respect by

Inventory

1. Inventory

Time Credits: This is the in-game currency for purchasing weapons and upgrades

 

Core Seed: Seeds are used to plant Cores. Seeds grow into Cores provided the player has enough Time Credits and Energy.

 

Base Seed: The base seed is used to plant a Megacorp base. It can be picked up and handled only by players belonging to the Research wing.The base seed needs to be planted in the vicinity of a core to create a clan base.

 

Cores: These are sites where players will be able to capture energy, which in turn is used to generate weapons from generators.

 

Generators: These are used to generate weapons in the game. The more the generators you unlock the more weapons you can generate within the game.

2. What are the different weapons and mods available in the game?

Types of weapons:

 

Ballistic Type: Projectile

Ballistic Projectiles can be directly aimed at a core or on a mod. They are target locked and have a more focused blast radius.

 

EMP Type: AOE

Creates a powerful EMP burst that disables any core or mods under the area of influence and temporarily deactivates base defenses. This can be used in combination with projectile weapons for maximum impact.

 

Locust Type: AOE

It creates a power drought in the area of influence and reduces the power generated by the affected energy cores temporarily. Every time the weapon is deployed the rate of energy drain reduces.

 

Earther Type: P2P

It neutralizes the energy core by dissipating energy into the ground. It overrides the core defenses by tripping multiple breakers within the core.

 

Linear Shorter Type: P2P

It short circuits the energy core by linking it to a more powerful allied core. It overloads the core defenses and effectively neutralizes the core.

 

Vortex Type: Targeted at enemy players

This weapon can be used to directly target an opposing player. It drains energy from opposing players within the area of effect and transfers part of that energy to you. It is ineffective against enemy mods or cores.

 

Loki  Type: Deceptive

Named after the god of trickery this weapon is a gamble that may or may not pay off. The weapon is purely chance based. It transforms enemy cores into any of the four Megacorp’s cores at random, if used on a Mod it transforms to any other Mod at random.

 

Types of Mods

 

Night Cloud

Releases a thick impenetrable fog that reduces visibility within the area of influence and causes severe disorientation. It offers a distinct tactical advantage by temporarily affecting the ability of enemies to respond to attacks.

 

Flare

The mod absorbs incoming attacks and converts it into usable energy. It shares this energy to the cores under its influence. It is especially effective if the base is under siege by opposing Megacorps.

 

Mirror

Once installed on a base ring the mirror deflects any incoming attacks and deals part of the damage back to the attacker. The higher the damage inflicted on the mod the higher is the energy drained from the player.

 

Plasma Shield

The Plasma shield is used to deflect any incoming attacks. It uses shockwave attenuation to stop weapons dead in their tracks. The buffer zone created by the shield overheats the enemy weapons rendering them harmless temporarily.

 

Solar Power

The Mod is powered by photovoltaic conversion. It increases power production efficiency of the core and decreases the total power consumption of a base helping the base self-sustain to a certain extent. This mod cannot power the base directly.

 

Compactor

It optimizes mod capacity on base rings and opens up slots by compressing existing mods. The higher the level of the compactor the more slots are available for storage. The power requirement of any mods deployed on compacter slots is higher than normal mods.

Clan Base

1. What is a base?

Each clan can set up its own base to defend cores of their Megacorp in the area. The base activates clan features such as clan chat, storage and mods. The base is powered by cores under its influence and can be fortified with mods to protect these cores.

2. What are mods?

Mods are enhancements that can be equipped on base ring slots. Mods help to defend the base against enemy attack.

3. What are base rings?

Each base will have influence rings attached to them. Every time a base will level up, an influence ring will spawn around the outermost ring. If there is already a ring present, the new ring will spawn outside the current outermost ring. The maximum rings will depend on the maximum levels of the base. Each ring will have certain number of mod slots attached to it which can be equipped with mods to defend the base against enemy attack.

4. What are mod slots?

Mod slots are storage slots which are present on the influence rings of the base. These mod slots can be equipped with mods that can help defend the base.

5. What is a meltdown?

The clan base is powered by the cores under its area of influence. The power consumption of the clan is dependent on the base level as well as the number of mods equipped on it. If the power supplied by the cores is less than the power consumption of the base then the base enters meltdown and loses its base rings one by one until the power deficit is met.
