The War Meter provides a longer term goal in Shattered Galaxy. A War Meter appears for each faction in the F2 Strategic Map screen. The War Meter will accumulate at the end of each War Cycle. Each War Cycle lasts 10 minutes and you can check the countdown to the next War Cycle next to the War Meter.
The number of points added to a faction's War Meter will depend on the number of provinces it holds when the War Cycle ends. Each province starts out with a value of 1 war point however province values can increase every time it is successively defended. Each defense will increase the value of the province by 1 point, up to a maximum value of 3 points. If an aggressor takes over a province, the value of the province will drop back to the default value of 1 point.
When the War Meter is completed, everyone in the faction online at that time will receive a uranium tribute. The amount of uranium received depends on the Power Rating (PR) of the player. The current amount of tribute is set to PR*3. Faction members who are not online can also receive the uranium tribute by logging into the game within 24 hours of the War Meter completion and remaining logged in for at least 1 War Cycle. Faction members who have recently joined the faction and have not been a member for at least one week are ineligible to receive the uranium tribute until the week has passed. Mercenaries receive uranium tribute when their home faction completes the War Meter.
