    He could have reached a "secure bounty" milestone, then he can secure, and hit you again, and suck your bounty.

    Im rather sad that i joined before reading the new rules, and spend uranium on upgrading bounty level - that does ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!

    Waste of uranium, waste of time, waste of.. everything.
    Upgrading your Bounty upgrades your base defense,  which helps you hold on to your bounty you have earned.
    just upgrades your OP defense...says nothing about turrets
    It's OP that costs you bounty when you lose it.  If your OP can hang on, you can get your bubble from a failed hit and keep your bounty tokens.

    So if I have more unsecured bounty and someone hits me and fails.... then They leave me no bounty. However you cannot get bounty off anyone UNLESS they HAVE MORE THAN YOU to start with? So basically no way to earn bounty by people failing in your base?

    In my opinion when you attack and retreat or die, that's a loss and we should be awarded accordingly.

    Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full ****, man. Never go full ****.

    Yes.  That's actually good - it keeps those with stupendous bases from being able to sit on their laurels and do nothing and let the bounty roll in.

    From a gameplay perspective, this makes good sense.  You want to reward *action* and basehitting.

    There's an interesting line in one of Rampage's posts that I think is getting overlooked here:

    Please note that ships will continue to build when your shipyard is destroyed.  The Conquest Yard should have the same behavior.

    That strikes me as just good game design. There is almost no disincentive to participate now. "Oh, no, my base was flattened!" So? Nothing is lost. Your dock repairs itself, and now your ships won't get stuck in limbo until you return.

    Its happening to me AND sadly I am doing it to others..

    You added all the new break points where you can secure bounty..   Well every time a big boy with all the toys does a secure, he is right back down to zero points and farming low tech levels who cannot compete with the latest and greatest fleets getting his points.  They NEVER have to hit someone who is high up in the rankings, cause you go off unsecured.



    IF you want this event to actually work..   You have got to figure out a way to prevent this.   Bounty was supposed to be where Tiers develop over time, say T6.5 are fighting T6.5, T5 vs T5 so on and so on..

    welp as it stands, you have T6/6.5 fighting T4-5 and starting of 6.. and ignoring like tech-ed bases..

    IF someone has 10k total bounty, under no terms should they be hitting someone who just joined at 800, or as the case now..  People who have under 800.

    I love that 1 hr into Bounty after checking the 96 targets to decide if I was opting in that a justice was added. This hurts those "pvp" curious players. Makes less Bounty in the pool and only reason is for more coins.

    Justice was always on the prize list, wasn't it?

    OK-as a long time player I dont have the BUS so please Kixeye-tell me/us how to defeat the Bandit 96 target. Every ship/fleet I have dies long before I can get to the island from the Concussive Axioms. No chance there are simply too many of them. And this for just 100 points? Come on now.
    then use gluts,, but maybe you dont have them
    then go hit a base for a chance of way more 100 points, but maybe you have no fleet for that too

    then unfortunately one would have to ask you,, why are you participating in a base hitting event

    Survivors, with Radioactive armors. 1xSurvivor and 4xMort ships. My Survivor is with Splash armors and only thing that hurt it, was the Retributions launchers.

    he's talking about the guard fleet in the target
    it used to be all retributions, now it has a Justice in it

    Justice was added into the target.......thorns damages most fleets and axioms do the rest.  These targets were purported to be a way for non pvp players to practice and get into the play style.  This cuts them off at the knees.....

    The level 95 Bandit targets were available at the start of the event but have quickly disappeared.  Come on kix, not fair to start us with them and then pull them.  Hope they will be re-spawning soon!

    Thorn damage from the justice. Way for kixeye to kick non spending players in the balls.

    they pulled them cause they wanted the 96s to spawn, not the 95s..


    95s were doable with mudgluts for free.   96s have the justice that stops that.. and the 6-8 fire supported Axioms that destroy any surface boat.

    IE to keep you from farming 95s for 100 points all weekend and getting free chit

    Against my better judgment I went ahead and joined Bounty.  If is still just a wacked as the first time. Launch base killer + a second fleet (so you dont get relay loading screen. Pick a target says +515 click button to go to their base click relay move here then select the other fleet to avoid the loading screen. Now you are looking RIGHT at the base 20 sec later base fleet pulls up you click attack base shows +515 battle starts you flatten them 100% and get whopping +0

    Did you even work on this thing at all?
