Year 2099 For several decades, both corporations, Antaeus and Frontier, have been at war with each other.
Destructive battle rage around the deposits of new mineral discovered after events known as "first rain" - global meteorite bombing / shower. When the dust settled, glowing crystals of exceptional power were found inside the craters.
The main weapon for corporations is distant combat vehicles, created as part of a project known as the X Tank. Each of the vehicles is different in maneuverability, destructive power and speed of production. Controlling these machines is more than a profession, it's an art, so only the best pilots can control them.
Today these remote war machines, controlled by the best mercenaries in the world, are fighting for control over the most valuable mineral deposits. Some have joined the conflict because of the ideals of the factions they decide to fight, others joined because of the crystals or find glory on the battlefield.
But the war is just beginning. What can you choose to fight?
This training site was once part of a network of training bases used by the central Asian resistance. When the forces of Antaeus began to occupy the region, they were able to seize this base first without a fight, since the rebels had retreated to more secure positions.
For a long time the "Sandbox" training base was used to train recruits before heading to the front. From here recruits from the greenest of the operators of "X" Tanks were trained and sent to the various hot spots of conflict. Over time crystals that were won in battles all across the region were sent here.
After Frontier's invasion, the war in Central Asia acquired heated up. The commanders of Antaeus were fully aware of the situation that the Central Asian resistance had once found themselves in. Despite its logistical convenience, this base could not be effectively defended or retained over the long term. The "Sandbox" soon began to be pass from side to side. It eventually became a section of the front, whereas before it was only the gateway to frontline service.
