Battle Nations' 1 Year Anniversary was a promotional event that rewarded players with 3x the normal Skill Points towards Promotion as well as 3x the normal Victory Points earned in PvP battles. In addition to the increased VP rewards, PvP army cooldowns were reduced from 2 hours to 1 hour.
Lastly, the Commemorative Statue was available for construction, providing a +15% resource collection bonus to all resource buildings in its bonus radius.
By combining one of the premium SP Boosts with the triple SP bonus of this event, it was possible to get up to 6x the normal SP rewards.

Exactly 1 year ago today, at 9:15pm PST, Z2 was blessed with a beautiful little baby named Battle Nations!
It has been an exceptional year, watching our little bundle of joy grow, mature, and take us on great, epic adventures. Looking back at our 15+ updates, Battle Nations has really come a long way. We've recruited and trained countless new units and vehicles, and enabled their promotion to higher ranks. We've battled Raiders, Silver Wolves, Animals, drunk Frontier Citizens, and Infected mutant-troops. We've introduced new features like Prestige, Assistance, Building Upgrades, and Combat Attacks. We added a platform, allowing you all to play on Mac! We've grown to love our cast and crew of amazing characters and the stories they share with us.
In short: we've laughed, we've cried (remember that server downtime back in June? That sucked.), and we've had a blast beating each other and our armies to a bloody freakin' pulp. We raise our hypothetical glasses to all of you, our amazing players, without whom none of this would have been possible! CHEERS!
Ok everyone, wipe your eyes, blow your nose, and get ready to party! We're celebrating our anniversary with you in a big way:
In all seriousness, we're humbled and forever grateful for your die-hard dedication and continued support of Battle Nations. This first year has been incredible, and we look forward to sharing many more with you all in the future!
See you on the battlefield!
The Battle Nations Team
