Combat Arms is preparing a “Spiders versus Scorpions” event starting this June.

All players will be split into two factions – Spiders and Scorpion (players can sign up now for either faction and gain a few rewards for signing up early). On June 16, players will take place in four week-long rounds, with a showdown weekend in July (if factions are tied). Winners will be determined by which faction scores the highest for each round. All participants will earn rewards, with the better rewards going to the faction that beats both individual rounds and the overall event.

This event is similar to one held in December 2010, where over 3.3 million battles took place.

Combat Arms is published by Nexon, which also publishes Sudden Attack and Vindictus.

‘Combat Arms’: Preparing for War

‘Spiders versus Scorpions’ event pits Combat Arms’ six million players against each other in month-long war

In one of the biggest and most highly anticipated online first person shooter (FPS) events, Nexon America’s “Combat Arms” is preparing to open the “Spiders versus Scorpion” event in mid-June. This event splits the entire player base of the game — more than six million registered users — into two factions, fighting through four rounds in hopes earning rewards and bragging rights as “Combat Arms’” the top guns.

Players can go to starting today to sign up for either faction, Spider or Scorpion and receive 3 free rewards offered only during the pre-sign up period.

The event will kick off on June 16 and consist of four week-long rounds with a showdown weekend in July if both factions are tied in victories through the four rounds. Winners of the rounds will be determined by which faction scores highest for the round. Rewards will be given for all participants, but the best will go to the faction that wins individual rounds and the overall event.

In December 2010, “Combat Arms” held this event and saw more than 3.3 million battles in which there were 192 million kills recorded, that included 110 million headshots with the most battles taking place on the Junk Flea map. It was a huge generator of EXP and GP, with 2.7 billion EXP earned and 3.6 GP generated for all players participating in the event. This makes the “Spiders versus Scorpions” events the biggest event for Combat Arms and one of the biggest events for all online FPS’ in North America.

“This is a huge event for fans of online FPS’ fans in North America,” said Nexon America’s “Combat Arms” producer Christina Lee. “We have the most guns, a huge player base and a wide variety of game modes and maps for players to commit to all-out war. We’ll have some great prizes for the winners, but the best prize will be bragging rights.”

The factions each have their own story and motivation for going to war. The Spiders are known for their stealth, use of technology and strategy and deliver lethal attacks with cold calculation. Meanwhile, the Scorpions are hard-bitten solders who believe in settling matters with a hard-word and a high caliber gun.
