Global Resistance Update: Strategies and Resistance 3 Unlocks

Global Resistance

Many of you have probably heard about Global Resistance by now. If you haven’t yet, now is the time! I wanted give you more details about what Global Resistance is as well as explain some of the tweaks we’ve made since launch (I’m looking at you “guy who stopped playing because the humans always won”).

Global Resistance is a massive online strategy game developed by Soap Creative. Here’s the official definition: Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set amidst mankind’s final stand in the Resistance universe. You enlist as a Chimera or Human commander and take over the world to unlock exclusive Resistance 3 multiplayer skins, in-game titles and XP boosters. Customize your base, build and deploy your personal arsenal alongside thousands of other players, or attack your rivals directly in head-to-head skirmishes. But what does all that mean? How do you play Global Resistance?

First, you need to go to MyResistance.net and sign up. Currently you have to use your Facebook login, but soon we will allow for PSN logins as well. Once you have a MyRes 3.0 account you just need to sign in and go to MyResistance.net/Global. Here is where it gets real. Whatever side you choose, is the side you are on forever… like forever, ever. Choose wisely! Do you want to be a human fighting off the Chimeran threat? Or do you want to flip the tables for once and be that unstoppable force?

No matter what side you choose, it’s all about dominating the world. You and the rest of your team will be fighting a real-time war 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each war is broken up into rounds; the time of each round, as well as the number of rounds, varies between wars. But the goal is always the same. Place troops early and often, drop bombs or spires on the other team, and place bunkers to defend or bunker busters to counter. Gain resources and bonuses by accomplishing territory missions while building up your base to replenish your troops and artillery. And finally, battle your friends one-on-one via a “rock, paper, scissors” style skirmish. Don’t forget to strategize during the battle with team specific message boards on MyResistance.net.

There is a lot on the line — far more than mere pride or stats! We have included some sweet unlocks exclusively from Global Resistance for Resistance 3. Rewards such as multiplayer skins and titles, concept art, and even XP boosters — if you’re good enough! All you need to do is sync your PSN account (once that feature is live) and you will automatically obtain anything you unlocked through Global Resistance when you insert the Resistance 3 disc.

Sound good? We think so, too. Since launch, 1.5 billion soldiers have been deployed. We are in the middle of our fourth war. 250,000 bombs have been dropped, 100,000 skirmishes fought and numerous rewards given. We have also made many tweaks to balance out the gameplay and things are looking pretty good. We have completely changed our balance of power mechanic to be fairer to each side. I assure you we are working around the clock to make this more than just a companion game. This is truly a Global Resistance and we need you.

Will you be the resistance… or crush it?

  • One more thing, in base view, the menu of some building appers out of the screen and I cannot acess it to upgrade or move the building to another place. PLEASE fix the menu to be visible inside the screen when the building is placed at the top of the land.

  • Will the game still be available when r3 comes out?

  • Never take this game down…. it is simply amazing, blows Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy away.

  • “+ Tim Salvitti on August 8th, 2011 at 11:13 am said:

    So far the Wars have been 2 for Humans, 2 for Chimera and War 5 is currently fairly even.”

    Notice that which wars won on which side has been avoided along with no mention of when the human capacity nerf occured nor what the standings are for the fifth war.

    The fact of the matter is humans are getting screwed and human players know it. These devs would know too if they took a look at solid facts and actually gave half a damn about the game at all. In its current stage, I’d recommend players either going to the Chimera side or not playing at all as if you start as human, you can count on one major screwjob.

    So much wasted time with that game already…

  • @52 TheUndertaker85

    Yeah I think you are right, cause now I checked, and it does look like Humans only won 1 round after this major tweak. I hope they are looking into it, cause it wont be fun anymore….

  • this game is pretty fun, but im convinced that the devs just keep messing with it behind the scenes to make it even. its good in theory, but not fair to the team who is actually doing enough to win. my team will dominate all the territories one round and get decimated the next. it goes back and forth, back and forth like this. makes it feel like it really doesnt matter what you do, cause its not gonna change the outcome if its your turn to win or lose a round.

  • “Currently you have to use your Facebook login, but soon we will allow for PSN logins as well”

    Oh thank you! Cant wait to try it.

  • is there an ETA on when we will use our psn accounts to join? i keep seeing “soon” but that only discourages me from joining.

  • @57 The PSN login is coming.

    There are a lot of community members at MyResistance who are more than willing to help answer questions for anyone who has already signed up. There are also lots of guides made my community members and they’re keeping up to date as best they can while the game changes. Most guides can be found in this board:
    http://www.myresistance.net/community/index.php?board=44.0

    There are lots of goodies to be unlocked, so if you see someone running around with a Test Dummy skin you know what they’ve been playing. ;)

  • today the chimera has more terrotory

  • for everyone thats complaining chimera won war 5 and it looks like the humans will win war 6. quit complaining and enjoy the free unlock content that other companies (ahem activision) would charge u 15 bucks for.
