Starblast Wiki

The Alpha Centauri Wars are a series of huge team mode events open to the community consisting of 3 teams(although in the past it had 5), usually with each garnering over 50 players, and a huge map. There have been over 20 Alpha Centauri wars events to date, with a new one each month(on special occasions there can be two events per month). The Alpha Centauri event is named after the nearest star to earth, the Alpha Centauri triple-star system, which also includes the star Proxima Centauri (Alpha Centauri C), of which one of the events in the Alpha Centauri series was named for. The creators of the Alpha Centauri Wars are Ethereal and Ancient Sky, as well as some artistic collaboration from Commander Andromeda.

The Alpha Centauri Wars are essentially regular team mode games but with some notable changes. While a regular team mode game can have a maximum of ~65 players, Alpha Centauri Wars can regularly take an upwards of about ~250 players. It takes far more gems to upgrade the base, usually taking an upwards of 320,000 gems to fill a level 4 base, with U-series it's 640,000 gems, but it only takes less than 1% of capacity to repair. The aliens at the sun are also far stronger but have a much higher gem yield. Due to a combination of these changes, Alpha Centauri Wars tend to last several hours; some in the past have lasted over eight hours. This event now often uses mods; KEST is often used but U-Series, Nautic Series, and Alien Intrusion have been used in the past as well.

Alpha Centauri Wars - The Story (for season 1)[]

This is the official story, though it has not been updated to include Alpha Centauri Wars after the first one:

Preface · The Beginning[]

At 4.2 light-years (1.3 parsecs) from the Solar System, the Alpha Centauri System has one of the most important planets of the Galaxy: Proxima Centauri b (Alpha Centauri Cb). Discovered on the terrestrial year 2016 in the Habitability Zone of the red dwarf Proxima Centauri (Alpha Centauri C), scientists began to speculate about the possibility that there was life there. It would be two decades later, in 2036, when NASA sent the mission 'Breakthrough Starshot', with the objective of study in detail the geological, atmospheric and possibly biological characteristics of the planet.

After a long exchange of information between the mission's probes and the JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), NASA published a detailed report with two unprecedented discoveries: there was life in Proxima Centauri b. But, in addition, on the planet, there was a unique mineral until then unknown: the Frotmerium. This mineral, formed due to the astrophysical characteristics of the star Proxima Centauri and the tectonic activity of Proxima Centauri b, has a very interesting particularity: we will not go into the mineralogical details because that would require a complete article, but the Frotmerium, due to its peculiar crystalline structure, can compress and store an enormous amount of energy in a little space, which makes it extremely attractive for the interstellar and intergalactic travels. All the Earth Space Agencies began to send Mining Vessels to exploit the Frotmerium ores, while they discovered that in Proxima Centauri b there were intelligent humanoids living in the equatorial regions.

In the year 3900, the Earth received an unexpected transmission from the Alpha Centauri System: the terrestrial miner fleets had been intercepted and attacked by unknown ships. The message was clear, putting in check to all the nations of the Earth and also to the Proxima Centauri b inhabitants. Earth lost millions and millions of dollars for the destroyed spaceships, but Earth lost more for the thousands of humans, a lot of them very skilled pilots, who died during the attack.

On March 13, 4300, the UN received a message in an unknown language. After their decoding, they were learned that the message's emitters were the attackers of the Alpha Centauri System ships: pilots from a very advanced civilization coming from the Galactic Halo, and who threatened to exterminate anyone who went through the Alpha Centauri System with the intention of taking the valued Frotmerium.

On March 15 of the same year, the Earth received a new message, this time coming from the native civilization of Proxima Centauri b: the invaders were exterminating them little by little, doing with them immorals experiments and enslaving them to extract the mineral. The transmission transmitter was nothing more and nothing less than the leader of one of the planet clans, hidden with his family in a deep cave in the equatorial region. And he asked Humanity for help.

Chapter 1 · The First Alpha Centauri War[]

On Saturdays July 8 and 15, 4337, the Earth Forces sent huge fleets with a lot of warships to the Sector 22 or χ, where Proxima Centauri b is located The mission: take revenge and establish peace. The captains were of three terrestrial factions: NWAC (New World Army Citizens), UNGE (United Nations Green Eagles) and PMF (Proxima Mining Front). At first, they fought together with the Innesians, the Proxima native humanoids, who were united in a warlike association known on Earth as CSF (Centauri Space Force). The common enemy: the Astrinomitas, name given to the Halo invaders. Their main attack group was known on Earth as Halo Corsairs.

Due to several causes, in the end, the space battle became an "all against all": an arena of blood, flesh, and metal floating in space. The NWAC is fundamentally a civil organization. The tension between them and the UNGE, a military organization, was decisive. Very different ways of doing things... The PMF is a paramilitary group, with rebels pilots eager for revenge, due to the 3900 massacre. They appreciated the initial support given by NWAC and UNGE, but they wanted to do things by their way. The CSF sought independence for Proxima Centauri b and its inhabitants. They appreciated the help, but they did not trust anyone anymore. On the other hand, the Halo Corsairs are space pirates: they survive through smuggling, invasion, and extortion. They have not other way. If we add to all this the unexpected betrayals (pilots from one Faction that suddenly worked for another Faction), and the Orbital Dysfunction Syndrome ("Pandorum"), we have an unstable situation whose end was the total violence.

The July 8 Battle won the PMF. This was a relief moment for the Earth. But this relief was brief as a supernova explosion: on July 15, the Corsairs took revenge. Taken Sector 22, which houses the innesian world, the Corsairs won the First Alpha Centauri War.

Humans and Innesians are now preparing for a brutal revenge, each species by its side and in its own way, which will surely crunch the fabric of the Cosmos.

To be continued...

[End story]

The Teams[]

Alpha Centauri has five different teams that have not changed as of yet:

HC Info.png

The Halo Corsairs:[] The Halo Corsairs dominated the first few events, winning almost all of them. They split with yellow for the first Alpha Centauri and swept the next two Alpha Centauri's in September and October. They had no success in the next Alpha Centauri, being obliterated in the December Alpha Centauri, but then winning the European event in January. They are currently the most dominant team in Alpha Centauri, though they have taken a step back in the last two Alpha Centauri's, then they have started to come back however the team has been obliterated repeatedly, not even really getting very close to winning in most.

NWAC info.png

The New World Army Citizens:[] The New World Army Citizens were forgettable in the first couple Alpha Centauri's before being boosted by some elite pilots in the October Alpha Centauri, though they still lost that Alpha Centauri to the Corsairs. They then proceeded to win the next Alpha Centauri due to a total collapse by the Halo Corsairs, and are still a strong force to be reckoned with, though they did not win the January Alpha Centauri. They have been putting up a huge fight against United Nations Green Eagles in the more recent ACWs, including winning against them several times.

United Nations Green Eagles:[]

UNGE info.png The United Nations Green Eagles had little success in any of the Alpha Centauri Wars before the January 2018 installment in America, where they won due to some clutch mining at the end of the game to acquire tier sevens and hold off Blue, making for the most epic Alpha Centauri yet. The United Nations Green Eagles are presumably going to make a run at winning a second in a row in the February 2018 Alpha Centauri. Since September 2019 they have been crushing the other 2 teams in ACW in most of the events, even if they lose to NWAC they still put up a major fight.

Proxima Mining Front:[]

PMF info.png The Proxima Mining Front won the first American Alpha Centauri but failed to have any success in any Alpha Centauri since. The Proxima mining front is the least successful team in Alpha Centauri, having been crushed in every Alpha Centauri's they been in.

Centauri Space Force:[] The Centauri Space Force is the second least successful team in all of Alpha Centauri. Furthermore, they have never come particularly close to winning an Alpha Centauri for most of the ACWs, being crushed in each installment, they have had some better luck in the recent ones when they were one of the options. They have the second lowest win count, they won their first one in February 2018 and latter won Asia and America in the first-anniversary event.


CSF info.png

For your ship in Alpha Centauri, it is favorable to have a ship that can hold its own in combat, seeing as fighting someone is inevitable. It is also favorable for the majority of your team to mine, seeing as getting to the next tier before your opponents gives you a significant mining and combat advantage. Much of the event is mining until late in the event, where massive battles between dozens of tier sevens take place. Battles do still take place though, sometimes sizable groups, and watch out for attackers on your minimap, be close to where your teammates are at, as many people hunt for people to attack! It is also smart to have a pack of missiles and maybe a Torpedo later on so you can blow up tight groups, attack pods work really well and are the second most common pod to be used behind mining pod. (If you have a Torpedo during the level 4 group attacks you can get a large amount of gems and kills) the 3 best level 6 ships are the A-speedster (for level 7 killing abilities), the Condor (for both level 7 killing and fast mining (faster than A-speedster but slower than rock tower), and the rock tower (to quickly level up the base and to get a massive amount of credits) do note it is slightly harder to get these ships since the vanilla ship tree change(s) in April-May 2018.)

Note: The same idea works with U-series and KEST but with different ships on different parts of the said trees.

Specifics directly from the creators (for Season 1)[]

1.- We will organize one event per month (12 per year), probably on mid-month weekends.

2.- The same weekend, we will organize as minimum 3 events: one for Asia/Australia (AS/AU), one for Europe (EU) and one for US/South America (AM). If there were many ping problems, we would consider opening 4 or 5 servers, one per region. The European and American events will be called 'Central Wars', and the Australian/Asian events, 'Auxiliary Wars'.

3.- Each battle will be for one of the Alpha Centauri Sectors. The complete results of the battles (Central Wars + Auxiliary Wars) will determine the dominion percentage for each sector ('Percentage of Sector Domain' or PSD), and the Map evolution. The Central Wars will account for 80% of domain (40% each) and the Auxiliary Wars 20%.

4.- For who do not want share the sector(s), we will could organize Extraordinary Battles (EB). There may be alliances that could generate puntual supermassive confrontations between 2 or 3 teams.

5.- There will be, for now, the 5 original Factions: NWAC, UNGE, PMF, CSF and Halo Corsairs. However, in the future, you will can create your own Faction to compete and participate on the story.

6.- There are some sectors that keep plot secrets.

7.- There will be a 'Hall of Fame' for the most courageous and committed pilots (one per month). There will be an Official Team Classification too.

8.- The story will evolve after each event, with an amazing Sci-Fi report accompanied with cool artwork.

Link to website:[]

Note: The official website is where much of the information here comes from, but the official website itself has not been updated in a couple months. Currently the link don't work because the website is being updated. (The new website has not been released yet, the link will be replaced with the new one)

Center Aliens[]

Aliens also spawn at the sun during the match. They will attack any player in range regardless of the team. Unlike aliens in regular team mode games, these aliens are far stronger and give far more gems; the yellow hirsutes and yellow saucers which spawn give enough gems to completely fill up a tier 7 ship's cargo with one kill. As of the 9-13-19 update killing these aliens as well as the regular aliens in team mode gives the player no score and no longer count towards the player's frag count.

Alpha Orionis Wars (AOW) or ACW Season 2[]


Same concept as ACW Season One with a few distinct changes, one of them is each team will have a different ship tree, the central star was different, it was far larger than normal

Pi Sector changes: KEST and Intrusion ships are used, there are random aliens and lose asteroids from the "explosion", no central aliens

Epsilon Sector: PMF has a single line of ships

Rho Sector: Random team sorting


Chapter I: To Epsilon Eridani[]

I. Explosion

In the year 4690, not far from Orion, in the constellation Eridanus, near the star Epsilon Eridani, radars detected a massive explosion, after which asteroid belts and cosmic dust formed around hundreds of systems within the constellation. For the Earth factions, this area was previously completely uninteresting, so they signed the Eridani Treaty, an agreement to keep the peace in the sectors. Due to this treaty, the humans blame the Halo Corsairs.

After this incident, the Halo Corsairs declared that they were innocent, and that it was caused by unknown aliens, who were very dangerous to contact. Despite this claim, however, the Corsairs knew nothing about the explosion. But pirates are looking for adventure, and maybe.. victims of robbery. They sent a transmission to the Earthling factions, claiming it was an ancient, extremely dangerous civilization. The Earth factions, distracted, don’t notice Corsair scouts slipping into the sector.

The Green Eagles believed the Corsairs, and just in case, begin to raise an army for defense from their fleets in Centauri. The NWAC stated that they all need to act and bring peace to the galaxy! After weeks of negotiating, they decided to keep the peace…

II. Falsehood

The main advantages of the Green Eagles are exploration and patrol. They detected NWAC and Corsair scout ships near the neutral sector Beta, the closest star to Orion in the constellation Eridanus. The parties were immediately called to UNGE base for negotiations. As a result, information about the plans of the Corsairs was revealed. The New World Army Citizens admitted that they had discovered large deposits of frotmerium in the asteroid belt, and they wanted resources under the pretext of achieving peace. The government of the NWAC decided that its actions were humiliating, denied the existence of the Eridani Treaty. and declared war on the other two factions.

With the three factions once again at war, they begin to spread through the system, claiming territory. In only a month, the first skirmish occurs. An all-out battle is avoided, because NWAC had only mining ships in that sector, the Halo Corsairs only had light interceptors, and UNGE alone having several attacking ships in their hangars. But, as is often the case, a large-scale war can begin at any moment…

III. New blue

After the failure in the Beta sector, where the NWAC leaders suffered only defeats, the discontent of the citizens moved to a new level. If the government can't conduct a military campaign started by its own lie, as well as being unable to deal with internal problems, then it is not necessary at all. This is how the "New Blue Rebellion" group was formed. Of course, this group immediately became banned in the territory of the NWAC. They continued to work, but they couldn't receive funding now. After that, when the plans failed and they went bankrupt, a message came to the NBR headquarters...

IV. Deal

After reading the message, the members of the faction held a council. They were faced with a question: do they agree to receive funding from the enemy leaders of the UNGE? Space may be huge, but if someone found out they were connected to the enemy, they would be considered traitors, and it would be a disaster. Yet if they refuse, there is a chance of dissolution of the headquarters due to lack of resources. After much discussion, they decided to accept the money, but with a radical condition: if they seized power, they could continue the war in the constellation Eridanus. They were sure that this way they could organize an excellent army in contrast to their predecessors, continue to extract frotmerium, and get ahead of other factions by exploring the planet nearest to where the explosion was detected. After this, they will take care of internal affairs. At the same time, all questions about sponsorship from eagles will disappear, and they won't lose the support of citizens.

The greens agreed; they were ready to do anything to make the situation in the war unstable. Time played the biggest role for them. The change of power, the difficult communication between the NWAC fleet in Eridanus and the NBR headquarters would give them victory. The deal was done, and each side was confident and thought it had outwitted the other...

V. Changes

As a result, under a secret agreement, the New Blue Rebellion received a large sum of money and a small fleet of elite ships: Gallus-X, Pulse-Warrior, and the latest Howler. Several months later, mass uprisings led by the NBR began in blue territory, leading to the government's collapse. The New Blue Rebellion began conducting a hidden militarization for battle in Mu sector, realizing that it was impossible to take victory with only mining ships. The ships were scheduled to arrive at sector Pi.

UNGE did the same, adding several types of ships to their hangars. The battle continues, but only gaining momentum...

VI. Chaos

The factions are reaching the Epsilon sector. The corsairs ventured to go to the only planet in the system that could not even be called a planet. It was a mess of huge boulders and small fragments, scattered throughout the orbit after the use of an unknown super-powered weapon. Their new tiny Pulse-warriors could pass the obstacle, but they were attacked by drones, simply called aliens. Reds were trying to exterminate them for a long time. After all, the thirst to destroy is in their blood! But later they realized that this is meaningless, the forces are not equal. They decided to retreat.

Earthlings were afraid to fly aside from the planet and went through open space, later peacefully dispersed in different ways since the secret agreement was still in force, but they were against unnecessary losses. With every day they saw that the level of space dust, debris, small asteroids, and radiation was increasing!

The headquarters of UNGE and NBR also found out about a large number of aliens in the Pi sector so they immediately ordered to use the additional ships, "Alien Intrusion" of the first specification

VII. Clash

It turned out that by coincidence everything ended up in the meeting of all the factions in the same place. Nervous of the directions and condemnation of governments, they decided to begin a fight, most likely the last for the majority of pilots.

Strategy is crucial, as was the stealth of ships among the debris. With a game of hide-and-seek, the factions went very close to the star, a flurry of asteroids is coming at the tired warriors...

VIII. Planet

Sector PI became a disaster for the human factions, they crashed in all the battles. Many lost contact with the main headquarters because they were plunged into chaos, and no radar could find the surviving units of army. So many lost pilots, hoping that one day they will get help and will be able to transmit information to the command, went to the exploded planet (do not forget that its research was one of the key purposes for each faction).

From the ex NBR pilot's description of the planet Epsilon Eridani b:

...I was experiencing huge amounts of turbulence throughout the entire battle in sector Pi. I couldn't force myself to help the faction further. I had to go to a planet that was closer than the base. That's all I was guided by at the time. There was no time to build strategies.

.. Having landed on the planet, and recovered after exhausting battle, I began to explore the surrounding area. Among the giant craters, I saw a small group of native ships.. ..They said that had received a message from the government: the battle was ending soon, and NBR would not send any ships to rescue them, without explaining..

..We only have to survive on this planet. We decided to split up right away.. The planet was blown up by someone for a reason, and if on the surface a lot of craters, then the civilization must be settled inside..

..Having found a very interesting cave, I decided to see what it would lead to. At first, I thought that I would stay here forever, but it was almost like a labyrinth!..

..I found myself in a huge room that looked like something official. It seems that I am very lucky, I am in the main headquarters of the Department! My partners are probably exploring the rocks of minerals on the other side of the planet at the moment, haha. Here I will try to find important information about civilization. I received a message from the pilots, they said that all traces were covered, meaning it is the only heritage of the past, and I am the first who will know for what were such costs and losses!..

..I see in the interior of the image A-speedster, no doubt it's Proxima Mining Front!..

..Despite the fact that they planned to leave this planet without any trace, they wanted to leave a piece of themselves here, leave all the information at a small base in the South of the planet. I began to explore their way of life on this basis. Apparently, it was not the most important one on the planet. The first noticeable thing was too many A-speedsters! It was like a cult. Later I learned that they were forbidden to leave the interior of the planet, so space ship simulators were very common. I'm sure they were preparing real aces to leave Eridani B forever and find some distant system to settle in. In addition, there were a lot of posters about mining and a great future after leaving the planet..

..How did it happen that the PMF still exist? Briefly describing the archives, when the miners were abandoned in the fight with the Corsairs, they already realized that was not going to deal with the earthlings, and some fleet leaders announced the formation of their state. Some of them were put up for battle(PMF even took the first sector), but after that less and fewer forces were spent, because their fleet was already small. By the middle of the battle, they were completely out of the war, declaring that there was nothing left of the army. PMF not considered Earth factions as friends, they felt betrayed. The yellows simply left the system and found a forgotten place - the Eridani constellation. There they settled inside the planet, saving the blueprints of several human ships for the future. For a long time, they were preparing to fly away and wanted to destroy the planet, at the same time test new weapons.. ..This would have been a possible reality if they hadn't been too late...."

IX. Interception.

While the earthlings were rebuilding the army, the corsairs began a blockade of the planet, capturing all the surviving soldiers who tried to fly into outer space. And suddenly they came across a small group of yellow Toscains, who for some reason lagged behind the main group of wanderers. Having understood who each of the factions was dealing with, a desire to destroy burned inside each of them, as if it were 4337 again, and the bloody massacre at Proxima Centauri...

X. First unifying

After the battle in Epsilon, the New Blue Rebellion saw potential in the PMF faction, and a course was taken to gradually appease the faction relationships. They did not participate in the war, but they were unpleasant to each other, they understood that even for such a long time, the story of how the miners in Proxima B were abandoned by the blue faction is not forgotten.

But already in 4698, the NBR sent their ambassadors to the PMF base. They discussed the state of affairs of the PMF, how these human factions developed so far away from each other. After hearing the story of PMF, they all reconcile, and NBR gave the remaining blueprints of Starblast Tech corp. ships, and promised to help one day find a suitable system for the foundation of a full-fledged civilization...

XI. Second unifying

By the end of 4698, although the battles had become regular and less intense than before, the Corsairs dominance was obvious. Wanting to be the most powerful human faction, each acted with emphasis against the other. Halo Corsairs took advantage of this struggle, and it was not difficult for them to win in the sectors.

The factions of earthlings came to this only by the 8th sector, but there are still two main ones ahead: Acamar and Achernar systems, which will be decisive, where the fiercest duels will be held.

In 4700, the Second Union was fully formed, uniting 3 factions: NBR, PMF, UNGE. The cooperation was beneficial: each faction, which had its own advantages, shared them with others, NBR supplied resources, UNGE showed its latest military developments, PMF organized a network of headquarters for training piloting spaceships

For the star Acamar best suited ships is the "Intrusion 5.0" series (some aliens were seen on the radar), so it was decided to purchase ships exactly of this specification...
