As a player I one million percent understand the frustration.  This decision came from way above the CM/MOD level and we were caught off-guard also.

I 'hope' we can keep this civil.

    "Data Mining" provides them with what players have and what is being used to complete PvE targets.  This change is a grab at pushing players to more expediantly fit those specific fleets.  Getting more and more creative generating advantageous opportunities right?.....Keep your chins up...

    what was the point on bringing out the 112 if your going to remove it a few weeks later. think you hadnt expected players to be able to do them for no coin so you got rid so we have to take dmg doing the fm





    The 112s already got escalated from insta-rep damage to at least 30 min damage to crazy-**** 4hr damage in their latest iteration. Going by this, **** knows what the new elite targets will be like. Very few people were able to do the S targets last raid, and if this is going to be the new 102s/109s, FM will turn from a manageable chore into a nauseating bore.


    Lol I just a 112 for 12 mins damage after reading this b.s...  Learn how to build a fleet...  And FFS learn how to drive in a 112...

    Okay, let's start here...

    1.) The 112's were brought out in the FM as purely a way to gain VXP for IB's and Mono's.... and as this is now the 3rd run of this raid format, probably no longer needed. I have about 100k of IB/Mono VXP I'll never use...

    2.) The 112's are the ONLY thing going away tomorrow. They were never part of the original FM format, and weren't going to stay anyways.

    3.) The new format that is coming, will really only affect the top players, as they are starting at the top, and working down. If you don't have a fleet that can do the raid currently, you have no business even whining about the change....period.

    4.) Citadels didn't become obsolete over night, and using a tank will still work moving forward. Will you possibly have to grind a bit? Sure...but you'll still be able to run.

    5.) If you dont have a Garrison fleet at this point, you're an idiot... (excluding new players).

    P.S.

    The decision was July to start the change-over. Every other major cycle has had 15-30 days from end of raid generally to switch over. To start now, before the end of the Garrison cycle, is just bull****

    With Execs that caused my 73% evade, 93% pen turret defense skulled Zelos with 5 Phalanx 4 a total of four hours damage when hitting it 5 times in the last 112 I tried, I find your statement hard to believe. Anyway, it is moot, as the 112s we were supposed to "train on" being abruptly phased out.

    A shame I went by what was told- I had my shipyard planned to have what I needed- now I may fall behind because you all decided to change t hings early- well if it looks like I am going to fall behind I will do what I did 2 other times- recycle my base(will message support a few months later to have them reset back  :) )

    NO! to getting rid of 112s. I've actually had fun doing them. Keep the 112s around for a while longer.

    Hahahahaha ...so after ive refitted my 2 tank/spotters to handle the 112's and current "A" sets and possibly "S" targets , I have to refit back to handle the lower level targets for 2 weeks then refit back after that to handle the "new" Fm targets....geeeeeeezzzzusssss mary for the love of pete when will it end????....complete crap on kixeye especially the day before the change.....effin hysterical that they could screw up a wet dream....complete Bush League 


    If your fleet can handle the A sets you can easily handle the current FM targets, and more than likely the future FM targets, it's just a question of which ones.

    The problem isn't that they're changing the targets, it's how abruptly they're doing it.

    correct...sort of...i took off mx-3 for ra-3 on my tanks...while not overwhelming of a task...my explosive damage reduction is nothing to write home about..my bulk damage in the 109s will come from the explosive weapons.....its the fact that i have to re-add mx-3 ....

    and yes totally correct on the timing of this news ...completely absurd
