This guide is written before the v1.1 patch is completed, so it WILL change.
The Full Invasion Survival Guide:
The purpose of the mod:
This mod is a multiplayer-only co-op mod, where players join one team and fight the bots on the other team. As there is only respawning after every 3 waves (every 3rd wave is either a boss wave or a challenge wave, more on that later), it means if you're whole team dies before you've beaten the boss wave you will start at wave 1 again.
Please note that if you like winning, this mod is probably not for you. The bots you fight against spawn in waves, and become tougher as you beat more waves. The number of enemy bots also increase with the number of waves, but the number of bots also increase when playing with more people. This means more people isn't always easier, because more players=more bots.
As the whole purpose of the mod is delaying the death of your entire team, you must make sure that not only you survive, but also help your teammate. Please remember you're probably going to die, if you don't like that: Don't use glitches to not die, just don't play this mod. Using glitches to make sure bots cannot reach you take the fun out of the game, perhaps not for you, but it will for other people. Remember: This is a co-op mod, it's not only about you, it's about the team.
The wave system:
The first wave will be the easiest you'll face, with weak enemies. The second wave will spawn once you've beaten all the enemies in Wave 1. The second wave is like the first wave, but with more enemies. The third wave will be harder, as you'll face your first boss with his evil minions. Bosses are the toughest enemies in the game, but there's only one of them in each wave. They are however accompanied by minions, which are not to be underestimated either. After beating Wave 3 (the boss wave), your whole team will respawn and Wave 4 will come towards you. Wave 4 is a normal wave again, but with some tougher enemies mixed in. Wave 5 will be like Wave 4 again, but with more enemies (and the same tougher enemies mixed in). This will continue like this, with having a boss wave again in Wave 6, and having tougher and more enemies in Wave 7. After having had 2 bosses (wave 3 and wave 6) a challenge wave will spawn in wave 9. A challenge wave is a wave with one type of very tough enemies. They can be seen as a wave made entirely from bosses. As all challenges are different, each require a different playing style to beat. Wave 12 and 15 will be a boss wave again, wave 18 will be another challenge. This continues till wave 33, after that only challenges will spawn instead of bosses. There are currently 54 waves in total.
There is also a wave counter in place. The score of team 1 (player faction) displays the wave number the players are currently facing, while the score of team 2 (invaders faction) display the amount of waves left till the next boss (and thus: respawn).
The player factions:
The Empire is a 16th-17th century based faction, with heavy armored infantry and guns and heavy crossbows for the militia.
The heaviest armored troop, with large two-handed weaponry such as pikes, pollaxes, morningstars and swords. They don't have any shields to buy, nor any shield skill in case they pick up a shield. Also they move very slow, making it impossible to run away from dangerous situations or dodging potatoes.
Medium armored infantry, with good one-handed weaponry, such as small morningstars, long swords, spears and daggers for close defense. They also have heavy shields to hold the line, allowing Sergeants to slash the enemies with their larger weapons from behind the shieldwall. Infantry also move a lot faster than Sergeants, but of course lack the damage done and armor that the sergeants have.
The Empire's ranged troops, they are equipped with primitive firearms (Arquebus) and heavy crossbows. They can defend themselves in melee with a dagger or pick up a better weapon. They however are not skilled with melee weapons, nor do they have good armor.
The Kingdom is a medieval (13th century or so) faction, with balanced infantry and good ranged troops.
The Kingdoms main infantry, with good kite shields, high-quality spears, swords and axes and mail armor, they can hold a line fairly well and are quite quick, making them good all-round infantry.
A good hybrid troop, able to function as a crossbowman as well as light infantry. They are fairly proficient with all melee weapons and have decent leather armor as well as access to shields.
Longbowmen are professional archers equipped with a powerful bow with a slow rate of fire. They are however lightly armored and equipped with only a dagger for melee.
The Norse is a viking based faction, with strong infantry and decent ranged troops.
Well-armored in mail and well-equipped with swords, axes, spears and also two-handed long axes plus access to good shields, these troops form the main army of the Norse and are excellent at holding a line.
Lightly armored and equipped with short axes and swords and cheap shields, these troops are only decent in melee. However they also have throwing axes, spears and javelins and are very good at skirmishing as they outrun almost everyone.
The Norse main ranged troop and while they have more ammunition and more accuracy (and thus can shoot further) than raiders, they're weak in melee and don't have shields.
The core of the colonists, the Riflemen are armed with good quality muskets, allowing them to deal great damage against even armored enemies. They can use their rifle in melee, but are rather weak as they have no armor other than leather coats.
Armed with polearms, sabers and small shields, guards are rather good in melee. Their gambeson armor also offer some protection, but not that much.
The main troop of a Macedonian phalanx formation, these troops are armed with the very long Sarissa, a weapon excellent in formations but weak in a one against one fight. They're also rather well armored, but not enough to be called heavy, nor do they have any good quality shields.
A skirmishing troop to back up the Pezhetairoi, these Peltastoi are very fast and lethal with javelins, but weak in melee.
The invader factions:
Invasion of Farmers:
Invasion of Zombies:
Invasion of Potato-throwing Half-decayed Zombie Farmers wearing Clown masks (PtHdZFwCm):
Invasion of Gobblyns:
Invasion of Barbarians:
To be finished soon. Expanded with all maps (with overview) and all the factions. More factions may be added.
