Greeting Captains,

I wanted to present you with a refresher for how VXP Weekends work.  While the event is running, destroy Unidentified Raider Fleets for massive VXP payouts. “Unidentified Raider ???”  will also spawn and pay out moderate amounts of VXP. Salvages and Elite targets will pay out 2x the regular amount of VXP.

What are VXP points?

Veterancy Experience Points (VXP) are acquired in battle, and can upgrade the turning speed and reload time of the participating ships by increasing their rank. This is accomplished by either by sending these ships into combat and earning experience, or by instantly spending gold to increase the rank of the specific vessel. The amount of VXP gained is determined by the amount of damage dealt and received.

Are there any other benefits of VXP?

Repair Specialists can be researched in the Naval Lab, and offer reduced repair times based on the VXP rank of a given ship.  There are two steps in order to gain the reduced repair, the first is to open your Naval Lab, go the the "Specialist" Tab.  There you can research the specialist specific to the type of hull you would like to see repair times drop for.

TARGETS:

During the start of the event you will find High Level Targets spawn near the Relay Towers.


Unidentified Raiders Fleet 55 (Reaver Armada style target) will spawn the entire time. Existing Salvage and Elite targets will have 2x VXP payout the whole time.  There are also “Unidentified Raider  ??” targets with a greater pay out than Salvage and Elite Targets. They spawn near Draconian Bases and your base.


REWARDS:

You will earn VXP for the damage to do to ships in the Unidentified Raiders targets, as well as the damage dealt to your fleet.  Damage to buildings, turrets, and walls does not contribute to your VXP scores.


You will see your VXP points when you return your fleet to your base:

You will earn additional VXP but there is not a display of the increased earnings, for the event bonus.

    vxp payout for conquer and defender hulls in the 100's really sucks, this is the only way for us to rank these hulls and now they are not even worth it. killed vas pride 4 times with a salty crew and is not even 25% ranked, another aspect of the game that is failing.

    i know it is great for ranking skyfires and phoenix but sucks for ranking conquer and defender hulls.

    Major_Rampage, nice  simple right up for newer players  to get the hang of vxp weekend.
    keep up the good work :)
    ps, any ship with a repair specialist is out dated & not worth building unless your under Lv50

    Compared to the PvE Hulls which take 5-6 coins to repair per hull the vas pride only takes 1 coin. So you can actually get more bang for your buck so to speak on on it.

    not everyone lives with their parents and has their clothes and food paid for by them.  If you are going to be obnoxious...at least use a little intelligence with it. Seriously, people like you make the forums toxic and a less enjoyable place to come to.  The extra 12 hours was great for the non-coiners and those that happen to work and or have family to take care of.  Considering a large chunk of that time is at night for the U.S. crowed it is a crappy time frame.  Despite you being a child or retired, try using a brain in figuring out not everyone is in your situation.  better yet.......open your eyes, close your mouth, take off the skirt and get off your knees for, Kixeye. Hell, stay there if it makes you happy.  It is pretty damned amusing to watch.
    If he had of said something along the lines of "Hey Kix, hows about making the VXP weekend for the 100 targets 36 hrs like it used to be" then yeah, 100% agreement with him.

    However, him saying "wheres my 12 hours" is simply entitled, offers nothing, and is a troll post in itself and got treated as such.

    Your personal insults are water of a ducks back with me, they mean nothing however contribute far more to the toxicity of the forums that you allude to.  Hypocrite much beel?  Players instead of being entitled and demanding SHOULD construct their views in a manner that results in constructive debate and feedback for kix, and therefore would help engender are far more constructive dialogue, instead of saying "wheres my 12 hours".

    So, take your own advice and open your eyes, close your mouth and engage the brain before the fingers.

    what specific targets are you talking about?

    In addition to Toot, this is a brand new CM to Battle Pirates. Not really the best reception on his first post.

    Because buildings never give VXP. As to why there are buildings in them:

    These targets are from the raid. This lets us a) practice on them, b) let's kixeye data mine to see what sort of tactics we use on them so they can close any exploits and c) is likely to be doable with the ships we are most likely to concerned with ranking right now.

    Also I don't think Kixeye wants to design new targets just for us to gain VXP.

    Let me get this straight...
    1. You agree 100% with what the post is asking for, but not with the way it was conveyed?
    2. Instead of articulating your constructive support for it you pick a fight with the poster? 
    How about we all ("Trolls" and "Whiners") cut each other some slack here and help each other formulate some constructive feedback for Kix that sends the message that we would like the Elite targets to spawn for more than 24h...

    1.  Correct
    2.  Incorrect.
