why have i spent a lotta time and a lil cash building and rebuilding a base to be defendable when you just gave every big cc player a weapon that can kill any op or w/h with no damage. Congrats you killed your own game. Unless you gonna rectify, there is no point in playing. cos base defences are totally useless. Thanks for wasting all our time.:mad:

You don't have to be crazy to play here, but ****, it sure helps.

    I have to agree Kixeye. I have spent weeks building up a decent base....and now on the verge of completion. NOw some nimrod with this stupid strike missile can come in and sit outside and just take the resources without having to get through defenses. This is the stupidest thing you have implemented and u need to remove it. There will be NO point in building up defenses and more and more people will just stay under bubbles permanently. There will be no base attacks avalable. It becomes all fleet versus fleet and even then that will start to die off because people will just run around each other and not want to fight. You are making your own game irrelevant.

    There will be no base attacks, because there will be a lot of bases just sitting there empty, the seasoned players having finally wised up, and moved along.

    Two land tiles is not enough, if they expect us to use it to defend while not becoming completely smashable by every other fleet build.

    Doesn't show that at all Razor....if he'd selected the ships in the corner sequences, so you could see the range rings, there would be proof. Beyond that- the hit was in no way, shape or form how anyone would really hit a base.....even one with NO TURNS!

    I'm not sure about how to attack a base, I haven't really properly attacked one in months...

    I will comment on, is it swag (let me check) yea swag... he was controlling those ships very nicely if I may be as bold to mention, he had them move in a controlled manner in order to hit each platform systematically as was his intentions on the particular part of the video. He also never said anything about how he was going to show everyone how to destroy the base with the new missile range.

    In fact the video wasn't even designed to show a frontal assault, he actually went out of his way to display that aspect. And furthermore I've seen much worse designs out there, If anyone is interested in copying it by the way (Think this is right!!)

    Maybe the base was just drawn up for this excercise...

    I can understand your angry about your base being not what it was, I'm not getting any younger and my base is not what it use to be :lol:

    Really? Sure not what I am seeing out there. Haven't seen an empty high level base (busted hackers not included) since the Raid.

    im in sector 202 120900,531 there is a picture of it here that you can see but it is possible
    Remember it is not a basekiller fleet it is merely a PvP fleet that maybee able to reach a little further for a quick snipe
    REMEMBER the WH in your own base get hit because you havent planned right ;)


    And i never show my Cards at poker either ;)

    I'd bump my poll back to the front page except I was warned by Swag not to bump it again (never saw any rule about this in the past). It's about 5:1 for some kind of change to the missile mod. So are you smarter than everyone else? If so, please fill me in on what I don't know. Almost every old hand has raised reasonable objections to this thing, with the only direct response to these being met by Swag today in his vid thread, with his promise that he would "talk to the developers". If you don't care about the time (or money) you've invested in this, be happy they brought it in for the present and show me a solid base. Otherwise you have nothing to talk about.

    THat FF missile fleet in Swag's video looks like a prefect prep fleet for a lot of bases.... put RA 3 on Solid Fuel 3, and have one FF with Anti Mortor guns...and you can walk the fleet in to take out the first 3 or 4 turrets of a lot of base designs without causing enough damage to bubble them. THen you bring the Siege mortar and Shockwave fleet to finish the base off.

    Not sure how solid this base is, it just shows that if you build " This" base you wont get sniped by a rocket fleet only.. Now that you have to prepare for a "sniper" you lose at least one turret for a flak gun.. Now this will make it that much easier to get in the front door for a conventional mortar or siege cannon attack.. Maybe they " Kixeye" are just trying to make everyone weaker and more susceptible to lesser players attacks? This instance only shows one base style, are we all going to have one base style now? I think that rockets should have increased range, just not that much that it is now outreaching all other weapons. Seems like a total imbalance again.. They Nerfed the thud because it was dominating so badly, why create the same problem on another weapon.. Just sayin...

    thats a week **** base and a very poor example it can be done in a frontal assault all you done is shown how many spaces needed to stop these attacks but thats not the point and your missing it big time or just dont give a ****.

    Swag I watched that video and from what I am seeing if your base design is no just like that one your screwed I have worked hard and put a lot of thought into my base design making my entrance hard to get through...Now I had to rearrange my whole base and open up my entrance just to use the land pieces elsewhere. to give more distance from my outpost and Warehouses......I think a couple more land pieces are warranted to help off set this newly designed rocket booster which was developed to counter act the Thuds with HB3.

    Just my opinion of course.
