Find the general.... end him... and survive...
  — Algol 
Bbmaye6jtn5b
The pestilent General Geir has once again unleashed an alien attack on the frontier.

In an effort to frustrate the rebellion's plans, he also intends to relinquish direct control of the creatures, making any future attacks completely unpredictable.

The mysterious Algol has lapsed into a deafening silence, his visions of despair have finally come true.

Event Quotes

MAELSTROM -BEFORE EVENT

1/11/16

This is Keres VII,

In spite of recent events, Commanders, we must not waver in our determination. General Geir is the source of these recent attacks. His death will bring a cessation to hostilities.

Our foe is a single man, and mortal.
  — -Keres R.I. 
MAELSTROM -BEFORE EVENT

2/11/16

I understand you've tapped into my command frequencies. How quaint, and utterly predictable.

I am no fool, rebels. Did you really think my designs would hang on such a feeble thread? As always, your naive lack of understanding will be your undoing. I only hope that you can

appreciate the magnitude of your eventual defeat.
  — -General Geir 
MAELSTROM -BEFORE EVENT

3/11/16

This is Keres VII,

Commanders, I have consulted Algol in the hopes of establishing a course of action. His words have always been strangely prophetic.

Unfortunately, he isn't speaking. Somehow i find his silence more

frightening than his warnings.
  — -Keres R.I. 
MAELSTROM -DURING EVENT

3/11/16

Do your really believe that my death will end your suffering, rebels? Once again, your poor grasp of the situation betrays you.

Those Creatures are not soldies of the Demon Corps, and they do not require

orders from me. They have the scent of blood now.
  — -General Geir 
MAELSTROM -END OF EVENT

7/11/16

Rebels, if i understand the situation correctly, we are now fighting two seperate enemies: the Demon Corps, and the aliens.

In the future, they may not attack at the same time, So we should adapt our strategies accordingly.

I hope we can hold out.

Trivia

  • Maelstrom is believed by many to be one of the WORST events released by KIXEYE. The surrounding fleet layout and the carriers and the cruisers' strength made many players leave the game or quit the event entirely.
  • Maelstrom is the first event to have a surrounding fleet layout which was first used by the old Alien Hive Fleets.
  • Maelstrom is the first event to feature a continuous alien attack.
  • Maelstrom was the first event to feature new alien fleets in the form of Greater Unknown Signals, with a new layout putting the Alien Hives much closer together.
  • Maelstrom was originally thought to award the Dominion Carrier by some players.
  • The difficulty of Maelstrom's fleets was greatly reduced as the event progressed. At first, some players suspected they were made stronger before being certainly toned down.
