|Full name||Shattered Connexion|
|Released on||CN, TW, KR|
2019 summer story event. Event starts after 8th of August 2019 maintenance (CN).
Some time after the events of Isomer, the Commander is called upon to investigate the infected city of Tallinn, where strange activity has been detected, possibly as a result of Paradeus activity. Anti-Rain Team and Team 404 infiltrate the anti-ELID quarantine to hunt the source of mysterious jamming and electronic warfare attacks against Griffin&Kryuger dolls as both Griffin&Kryuger and their shadowy enemy attempt to rig the game of cat-and-mouse in their favor.
Difficulty rating of Shattered Connexion is actually fairly similar to previous events Isomer, with the event being offered in both normal and hard difficulty, players can experience all the fights and story chapters without having those super monstrosity 50k+ CE rated echelons, all of the event rewards (except for additional medals) are obtainable from normal mode. However Shattered Connexion features even less combat nodes, average of 3 to 4 per chapter, most of the event nodes are actually story only.
Normal difficulty combat nodes of chapter 1 and 2 difficulty is fairly trivial, enemies seemingly undefeatable can be defeated by capturing specific map nodes, or having them collide with each other. Chapter 3 onwards can be slightly challenging for casual players and chapter 4 will start to demand lv80+ 4x expansion T-Doll echelons with ok level of equipment and fairy/HOC back ups. Chapter 5 however can prove to be challenging even in normal mode, all of chapter 5's combat nodes are night battle, players also be expected to have 5x expansion MGSG/RFHG echelons to deal with the armored units.
New elements and mechanics
Abandoned structures over a node, player's echelons fighting within will gain defensive bonuses when defending against enemy assaults while standing on those nodes, also applies the other way round, assaulting enemies stationed on those nodes, enemies will be receiving the defensive bonus. Said structures can also be detonated (usually by a detonator on the battlefield, or interactive golyats bombs). Detonating abandoned structures will bury nearby nodes with rubbles, making them inaccessible, units (friend or foe) buried underneath rubbles will have their HP reduced by half for every turn they are buried under. Rubbles can be destroyed by HOC units same way they could in Isomer.
One-time interactive terminals
Some control terminals in Shattered Connexion can only be interacted with once per battle. Keep in mind some gateways once opened, will stay open through out the battle.
