Upcoming events
A Special event is an event that hosts a challenging system that can be something from Spaceball to CRAZY CUBIKON. These events are only available during or near holidays and offer new boxes or promotions available that have not been before. You can primarily tell if a promotion is available usually when DarkOrbit sends you an email or if you just log in while it is happening, you will see a pop-up and on the Home page (right column "Upcoming" or even in the "News" section).

  • 5% bonus when selling cargo for the company for x amount of time after the event
