It’s time for your favorite 16 ships to face off in an epic clash of the titans!
Every year we challenge the community to crown the best ship in the ‘Verse in Ship Showdown, and this year is off to an epic start! So far, we’ve seen screenshots, videos, lego miniatures, original songs, clay sculptures, and much more as you campaigned for your favorite ships.
Now that Phase 1 of the competition has come to a close, we’ve landed on 16 ships moving on to Phase 2 of the competition in head-to-head bracket style ship madness! And of course, it wouldn’t be a battle of titans if we didn’t make the prizes worthwhile. The top four ships in the tournament will have some fun in-game goodies and prizes made especially for them later this year, while the ultimate winner will get a special prize in recognition of being the ultimate Ship Showdown champion.
Take the top 16 ships for a spin with the Live Showdown Free Fly!
As we move to the next phase of the competition, we’re also getting ready for an epic two-week Free Fly event, which includes the top 16 ships as selected you! If you aren’t immediately able to pick between a matchup, take them both out for yourself and do a bit of “research.”
Similar to last year, all ships in the top 16 will be available on the pledge store, but take note, limited ships will no longer be available once they have been eliminated from the tournament…
Lastly, we’ve got some extra surprises coming, ranging from discounted starter packs, a referral bonus that lands you a free P52 Merlin, and more… But for now, let’s get to this year’s top 16!
Without further ado, your Top 16:
- Aegis Avenger Titan
