Hey Captains,

I whipped up this video for you guys so you can get a taste of what kind of damage the Draconian Battleship and the new Anti-mortar turrets can do in battle. Enjoy!

    I enjoyed the death of the SW, then you lost me with the death of the mirror fleet (I'd use sw on slv9 salvage), but then you got yourself back on the best of terms - omg, I was laughing with the anti-mort smoke in the sky. this will change up some tactics for sure.

    Thanks for the video.. 5 ships in one fleet is very impressive. I would have liked to have seen one of these in a base battle.

    The only thing is.. I must point out that in fight 1 and 2.. that's going to be about 10-15 hours of repair time for that fleet. The seawolf fleet.. 3 hours. Who really wins that? Big Ouch!

    I already know whos won it in my sector, and since i know im not going to get the 3rd quota prize because the competitions are so close together my cargo and fleets havent really expanded beyond what they were the last time around, maybe you people could answer my question...

    Q. Are we all going to be able to obtain these prizes some other way at a later date ?

    Is anyone else amused by the idea that soon sectors everywhere will be referring to these boats by the acronym "BS" or "Drac BS"?

    Would you really want this to be available to everyone?
    Most CC users probably would buy it as soon as they get it, and instead of just 500 people with it, a lot more will have it and be making the game very un-fun for majority of people.

    Yes, we do plan to do many more videos like this in the future, especially when there are new weapons/hulls/blueprint.

    let me think about this for a second or two....

    1
    2


    yes i do want it to become available to everyone for several reasons, these reasons range from the simplest being i would like one and dont see why the people who started playing before i did and have more money than i do should be the only ones to own one. all the way to more complicated reasons like those 500 people who have one make the game un-fun because i want one...

    Selfish reasoning maybe... but thats how it is... and also you act like this game is full of players running around with credit cards people who buy things on launch date every time dont need credit cards... so that im not worried about at all... they have tons of cash, not a problem...

    i can also understand that a competition is a competition and prizes are given out to winners, now im sure how you all feel about this, but when you know who's won the competition in your sector before its started, its not much of a competition is it ?

    anyway since moderator jumped pass my post and confirmed they will be more vids, i think its safe to say they wont be any method of obtaining these ship types in the future, but i remain very hopeful about it (perhaps in drac bases) maybe even a watered down version perhaps so the winners get a slighty better ship than those of us who gained it from say drac bases...

    And on a final note, if only 500 people have it then allowing everyone to have them is much more fair in reality... dont you think ?

    Looks good Swag... Inspired me to go for OP 5 AND the Hailstorms during the raid, they would make a nice addition to a base fleet killer. I know im not getting the Battleship becauce im only lvl 26, building my first SW right now, and im trapped in a sector with a bunch of people lvls 27 to 32. Hope to see some new videos soon, you did that like a boss! (or now, like Swag! :p)

    Hey Swag, I have a feedback for all the staff, why don't you change the prize from the first place to some quota like 1 or 2 billion resources? When it's only for the 1st place, after one player goes so much better then the competitors, everybody stops spending money, if you make a very high quota many people will spend money and you'll get much more, more people gets the price and everybody is happy. Hope it's a good idea, or at least you will read and talk about it

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll bring it up to the devs. However I'm fairly certain their reaction would be that Revenge Raid is about endurance and not a blitz. We do it over 3 days to make sure other people get a shot at it, because not everyone can play on the first or second day.

    4 DUIV? 2,156 seconds each. 2,156 * 4 slots = 8,264 seconds repair time per ship = 2 hours 17 minutes 44 seconds per ship. An entirely destroyed fleet with 4 DUIV's = 11 hours 28 minutes 40 seconds of repair time, roughly half a day. Man, that must suck for the Draconians... Spending all that time in their bases, repairing constantly... Not having the money to pay for the repairs due to low salaries...

    I really do like the idea of making the prize winning ship available to those that achieve an extremely high quota. Say, 1 or 2 billion. Many sectors would not have a winner, and some would have several. I have seen several level 25 & 26 players that won the hammerhead, and/or battle cruiser with winning totals well below 500 million. I also saw a guy get over 3 billion in the last raid and did not win the battler cruiser... OUCH.

    If you did it by quota, then you would not have all of the people jumping all over the place to try and find an "easy" sector to win the Raid Prize and then bolt back to their home sector afterwards.

    Also, you might get some additional people to spend money to reach the quota, thus increasing Kixeyes profits. Let's be honest, if you have a CC player in your sector and they jump out to a huge lead in one of the events... 95% of the people in the sector quit playing the event and just fill their warehouses, or just grab a few extra salvages. If you knew what your target was from the beginning people would be more apt to spend money to get there, knowing that it would not be wasted effort.
