Ahead of the Others Event: User’s Manual

From April 6th to 27th, Caliber will host the Ahead of the Others game marathon in the new game mode Interception. This is a limited-time event in which all players who have reached the 11th account level can participate. The goal of marathon participants is to earn event currency and use it to buy unique items and advance in the ranking of the best players. Just like in previous marathons.

This marathon is dedicated to the new Interception game mode. Read a short article about how this PvP competition works.

The rules are quite different from the other Caliber game modes.

Event Currency

During the Ahead of the Others event, two types of temporary currency are introduced into Caliber: Tokens and Tickets.

  • Tokens are the main Event Currency used to buy rewards. You can only earn Tokens in the Interception PvP mode.
  • Tickets are the currency that multiplies Token earnings tenfold. Tickets can be earned for every third victory in Clearing, Special Operation, Showdown, Frontline, and Hacking modes; received for completing a daily task, or bought for Coins in the Armory, the special event store.

You will be able to spend Tokens for one more week after the end of the marathon. The Armory will be open until April 27th.

How to earn Tokens

Tokens are given as an additional reward for battles in the Interception mode. Their number depends on the match outcome:

  • one intel upload: 20 Tokens
  • victory: 40 Tokens
  • victory with a Ticket: 400 Tokens

A Ticket multiplies the reward for winning tenfold. If a player has at least one Ticket, it is deducted from the account automatically after a victory in the match and multiplies the reward.

If you desert from the battle, you will not earn Tokens regardless of the result of the match.

How to earn Tickets

Tickets are earned by one for every third victory in any game mode, except Interception and Prologue. Victories in modes stack. For example, you can win two Clearings and one Special Operation and get a Ticket. In addition, you will receive one Ticket for each completed daily task.

Tickets can also be purchased for Coins in the Armory starting from the second week of the Marathon. There they are sold in sets of 10 units.

Marathon Armory items

The main merchandise of the Ahead of the Others event, available with Tokens, are

  • Striker Epic Outfit for Watson, the medic of TFB
  • new Emote Russian Roulette
  • new Camouflage Oasis
  • three exclusive Emblems: Knock-out Dose, Kapow!, and Ankh
  • and in-game Currency totaling 70,000 Credits
All rewards of Ahead of the Others event are temporarily exclusive. They cannot be acquired in any other way for several months. However, the event store will be open for another week after the end of the marathon.

Event ranking

During Ahead of the Others marathon, all players automatically participate in the best players ranking according to the number of Tokens earned. The minimum number of Tokens required to get into the ranking is 1400.

The ranking takes into account the number of Tokens earned by a player. That is, Token expenses do not lower your position in the ranking in any way.

By earning Tokens, the player moves up the ranking and receives rewards for new places: credits, free XP, days of Premium, experience and credits boosters, and coins. The award is credited instantly upon reaching any prize place.

Once on one of the three tops of the rating — thousandth, hundredth and tenth places, the player receives a unique event emblem:

  • The emblem for the top 10: Ahead of the Others: Grandmaster;
  • The emblem for the top 100: Ahead of the Others: Strategist;
  • The emblem for the top 1000: Ahead of the Others: Tactician.
