Every build I try for zelos tank fails, about to give up on this XXXXXX game. If I do figure it out Kix then changes every thing and I have to syart all over again. As a result Ive stopped spending on game as it is less fun and more aggravation. Shame, Ive been playing a long time. PLEASE KIX STOP GRABBING FOR OUR WALLETS.

  • Post your build... Zelos is a pretty straight forward build for a tank..
  • I struggled until I looked at YouTube on a Zelos tank build. After I got it right, it opened up tons of content. Not to harp on you, but at your level, you should have a grasp on this build cycle..... Me, lvl68 I believe..

    I am using just Zelos with 2 hailstorm D and 2 Phalanxes 4 just fine, hit 88 with 0 damage if I be careful. 5 88s is Tier 4.....but 36 88s for Tier 5 is not for the careless hands. lol.

    here's mine... Dont forget.. its not really what you put on it... its RANK that plays the roll here.. for good countermeasures to be effective you just need lots of rank. can do just as good with D2-m as with charged armors. This ship takes 4 min damage in 113's when I DON'T drive carefully. If I drive good it takes none.

    This build works pretty well for my other account (this account has x charged armors, which I assume you don't have).  I could get by without the tridents, since the point is to never get close enough to need them in a 113.  They just help me escape if I get too close by accident.  Since Kixeye has essentially given away 2 fully-built instant Icebreakers through TLCs, I like to put one in my fleet and use it as the tank for that turret cluster just left of the gate on the 113, and to take out the fleet that comes in from the North midway through the target.  I know that means I'm taking damage that other players say they're not taking, but that's the spot where my Zelos gets overpowered by the sheer number of mortars coming at it.  Using the icebreaker to take damage at that point of the target leaves my Zelos near full health for the final sets of turrets in the 113.  Since I have 2 Icebreakers, I can go swap the other one in then take out a second 113, which makes the FM go faster.  Note the importance of getting pieces of your build to R15 in the Retro Lab.

    If you're looking at smaller targets like the 88, the fleet behind this tank will take no damage unless I really mess up or encounter a flash crash or lag at the wrong moment.  Try to maximize splash on your mortar chuckers.  I got my Monos to +234% splash, which is extremely helpful since it expands the area that's taking damage, ultimately leaving me with fewer individual turrets to hit, so fewer opportunities to mess up.

    I am as of now done with this game, after purchasing the Mono fleet that was offered with the promise of performance that it will help me to do better in new FM and finding that it gets ripped to shreds because  you need to have charged armor to do the new FM and it did not come equipped with the the charged armor. FOR $100.00 IT SHOULD HAVE COME PROPERLY EQUIPPED!!!!! I feel totally ripped off, and I feel like a fool for trusting Kixeye, as it seems that they're investors bottom line is more important then the people who are spending they're hard earned money. It used to be such an awesome game but you've ruined it made it all about money and took all the fun out of it. VERY VERY ANGRY!!! I'm sure no one from kix will read this and if they did they won't care. They only notice apparently notice if you curse. To anyone still playing that reads this Happy Hunting.

    HARRIER MISSILE, 3X PHALANX 4, 5X TRIDENT(SPRINT BETTER BUT FOR ZELOS IT'S OK) 6X GALE 1. SFB 3, RA3, SS5 SO YOU CAN DRIVE IT BETTER WITH SLOWER MONOS, GS3 SB3 OR 4 AND FINALLY 5X C1-X. VERY ESSENTIAL TO THE BUILD. DEFENSIVE ARTS TLC WILL BE LATER ON. YOU CAN GET THIS ARMOR. THIS IS MY BUILD, WITH CAREFUL  DRIVING IT'S INSTANT OR JUST ABOVE 5MINS REPAIR. HOPE THIS HELPS
    i refuse to coin. i'll wait

    I'm curious
    what promise of performance did they give you when you purchased that fleet?
    what resources did you use to learn to drive it?
