A competing company is trying to seize the planet from NorTec! (They say they have a valid legal claim to it, which NorTec jumped, but our corporate lawyers say otherwise, and the Company pays our paychecks.) This is a team play variant for two teams of 1-6 players each. You'll need two Onslaught sets, or one Onslaught and one Dreadmire.

Each team has its own base, and its own separate set of Divisions, Item pool, draftable Troops, and so forth. Use one set of lanes in common; the "red" team will use the "hive" portion of each lane. During the Combat Phase, troops facing each other fight each other. One side or the other will win the combat, and overrun the enemy base; any troops that do so inflict their Power worth of damage on the base, then return to the lane.

Between turns, either side may redeploy players (and their corresponding troops/equipment) to a different lane. This is non-simultaneous, and announced openly. Only one player may play in a given lane; redeployments need to be either a swap between two players or a more general shuffle among three or more. A player may only redeploy once per turn.

Whichever side's base falls first loses, and the other team is the winner. If both bases fall on the same round, the game ends in a draw. If both bases are still standing after round 9, repeat one more round of overruns with the overruning troops from both sides, and continue this until a base falls. If both bases fall on the same overrun round, the game ends in a draw.
