Invasion Dev Blog
Invasions are open to anyone above level 50, but you have to sign up for it and hope to get picked at random before the event starts. Only 50 players can participate, with 10 of them being chosen by the governor of the territory.
Invasions happen when the Corruption becomes too strong in a territory - roughly every 4 days - at which point the Corrupted will siege the fort. If the fort falls, the settlement loses upgrades such as crafting stations or fort upgrades.
During the invasion you will face 8 waves of Corrupted with different skills and even boss encounters. Players will have to prevent them from breaching the gates and destroying the fort claim. To do this, they will be able to use a number of items that they can buy with battle tokens during the preparation phase of the siege as well as the fort's siege weapons.
There are rewards in the form of experience, gold and loot, depending on how many waves players managed to defeat.
