The game is pure PvP. There are no missions or quests. There are several World Events, some of which have gameplay similar to popular multiplayer modes. For example, Incursion, the default mode, is the standard team deathmatch.
A World Event game mode can be active depending on the server config. These events run on top of the default (Incursion) mode such that you can still gain CEP, rank, medals/ribbons etc.
At the end of some engagements, players gain additional CEP, in addition to what is already gained from being involved (e.g. killing other hostile players).
This is the default baseline PvP game mode. As the player stats (kills, CEP, rank, medals/ribbons) are character specific and persistent, they are reflected in this and any specific world event played.

The GCV-Starguard carrier has a detention hold where prisoners are held.
Hitting someone with a Hostile Incarceration Dart (HID) thrown or fired from a TKR9 weapon, instantly teleports them to this detention hold.
The captive can only come out after a five minute stay, or if someone with the Advanced Programming Spec II CTC, hacks into the terminal outside the door and disables the force-field.
The incarcerated player loses 15 CEP. The player doing the incarceration gains 15 CEP.
To lower the force-field, use the terminal near the detention hold by pressing and holding F until the operation is complete.

PHASE 1: Battle starts on the ground where each planetary starbase has to be captured by activating the terminal inside, thus changing its alliance to your faction.
PHASE 2: Battle moves to space where the defense systems on the four stations have to be disabled or destroyed before docking is allowed.
PHASE 3: Battle moves inside where the station has to be captured by activating the terminal inside, thus changing its alliance to your faction.
PHASE 4: With all planetary bases and stations captured by a faction, the major battle for the Starguard carrier begins in space. The carrier’s defense systems have to be disabled or destroyed in order to allow docking. Once the battle moves inside the carrier, it has to be captured by activating the three terminals (one on each deck) inside, thus changing its alliance to your faction.

SECURE AND HOLD
Each planetary, station, or carrier base has three terminals which are used to program a key building.
On the planetary base, the terminal is located inside or near the main starbase (Heatwave, Frostbite, Gulge, Nightbridge), C&C, and COMMS buildings. In a station (Arkangel, Overwatch, Templar, Vanguard) or Starguard carrier, the terminal is located on one of the decks.
To change the operating mode, use the terminal and set it from STANDBY to your team (GALCOM|INSURGENT). After which the 60 second timer for that terminal begins.
Once the timer starts, for each enemy combatant that is within 25m of the terminal, the timer counts down 30% faster. Similarly for each friendly combatant within this range, the timer counts up 30% faster. Once the timer elapses, the terminal is secured.
When all (3 per base) terminals are secured, the base is captured.
