to choose from with different objectives and styles of play.
- Alpha Zone
— otherwise known as Alpha zone, is one of the two original zones from
1996. It was designated as a zone for new players to get a grip on the
basic elements of flying. No objective, just fly around and
kill....master your ability to control your ship is the main objective
- Chaos/League — This is the first of
the SSS megazones and comprises many different game arenas into a
single zone. The hope is that all SSS zones can someday share the same
roof. The breakdown is as follows:
- Chaos Zone
— (Main Arena) This is where Subspace all began. Also known as Chaos
Expert; it is a natural progression from Alpha for more experienced
pilots. The goal is to kill and not be killed. Fly lone-wolf, in a
swarm, or on a turret to compete in the bi-weekly Reset Winners
Competition, the biannual Pilot/Squad Rankings, or just for the hell of
it. There is also a weekly Chaos League event with dozens of squads
competing simultaneously as well as a monthly solo pilot tournament.
- Dueling Zone
— This is a hybrid zone comprising a large free-for-all dueling arena
and many leagues in subarenas. Dueling zone focuses on bare-knuckle
one-on-one fighting There are is also a Gladiator (3v3) League, Dueling
(1v1) Ladder, and a 2v2 Dueling League.
- Premier League
— Premier League (three skill divisions) 4 versus 4 competition is
considered by all to be the highest level of team combat competition in
Subspace/Continuum. Practices are held throughout the week with dozens
of matches taking place every Sunday. Matches are 45 minutes long and
each of the 4 starters (and their subs) get 3 lives. A sophisticated
ranking system is employed that tracks stats such as assists, damage
efficiency, clutch kills and chokes.
- Gladiator/2v2 Leagues
— Gladiator is 3v3 league. Both these leagues are variants of Premier
league but are faster-paced and more geared towards individual skills
and/or close-range combat.
- Warzone CTF
— Alpha/Chaos zone with a twist. It is a capture-the-flag type zone
where teamwork comes into play a lot more often. There are two teams
and your team must get all 8 flags and hold them for 60 seconds for the
- A Small Warzone — This zone isn't
technically SSS settings but the premise, speed, and balance of ships
are all close enough that many SSS pilots are known to play here. The
goal of this zone is the same as Warzone CTF but there are more than
two teams competing and only 5 flags to capture, but the catch is that
each pilot can carry only one flag.
- Turf Zone Arizona — This zone is similar to Warzone, but
more defense-oriented. There are 200 stationary flags that you have to
control. The more your team owns the more points you get. The radar system
even shows which teams control which areas.
- Powerball Zone
— Warbirds vs Javelins in the Subspace version of Soccer. Pick up and
pass the powerball from one end of the arena to the other while evading
deadly enemy attacks to score goals for your team.
- Hockey Zone
— A refreshing change from pure killing zones, Hockey Zone has unique
settings that emulate NHL-style hockey, facilitating the ability to put
innovative moves on your opponents. The zone emphasizes teamwork in a
battle to score more goals than your opponent as they try to stop you.
Although the zone is mainly hockey, it is the home of all sports in
Subspace. It is also the home to some ultra-competitive leagues.
