    Say hello zelos nerf in FM 113 :D
    Agree Spitfir3.

    Those using a Zelos to complete the FM can most likely kiss that goodbye.  Hope you didn't scrap those Monoliths...

    I foresee a 6th tier in the Fm.  Along with another higher point target than the 113 and a restructuring of current prizes.  hence the unheard of week delay in the FM directly following the raid.
    I feel one billion points might be in t6. I know it's time for a change even I can get to t5 easily.

    wait...."next week"?  Are we NOT having an FM this week or are we having one and  it is just going to be tokens (or wherever someone is currently at in the FM)?
    There will be an FM. If you already have the current prizes you will earn tokens.
    Thank you for elaborating.

It doesn’t sell decorations for games and try to milk gamers for all they’re worth, and it doesn’t sell advanced weaponry that will allow rich gamers to wipe out poor gamers. But it does allow users to accelerate time in the game. Rather than wait for something to be developed, a user can pay to accelerate the build time for units.

    not sure about 1 billion but, I could easily see a 750 million.  Now that being said, if they added some 350 mil point FM target then, I could see 1 billion.  Not sure how they would do it.  Either making it absolutely massive (like the original Drac bases) or upgrading all the ships and turrets.  They could end up having the coldsnaps like the TLCs have.  Where it disables your CMs with the extended range....ouch...

    Nice to have the opportunity to get the ship build tokens before VXP weekend, so thanks for that.

    Also nice to have the defender VXP as rewards in VXP weekend.

    Question, though: Will hunters/fangteeth TOTALLY resist the slow, or just partially?

    Also, what's happened to the daily campaigns???

    There is an update coming to the FM,  which is more than just the prizes,  coming next week.
    I don't know to like this or not like this.  Not enough Info to know which one to choose.

    apparently there will be nothing that will allow quick builds to get hunters or snags ready for vxp weekend lolol,  or everyone an their mothers to buld omega's on top of their ops. is this being done so people will spend to hurry up builds in time for vxp weekend, nahhhhhhhhh that can't be it, only conspiracy nuts would believe that right ?

    Didn't you read? Nothing new added to the FM this week, so for those caught up it means at least 10d of tokens. And with the skirmish and pfang tokens from last week, along with the tokens from the raid and the tokens from the FM - I will have both pfang and apex ready to rank. Lots of tokens around this time... 

    Equipping the omega to the OP cost a remarkably small amount of baseparts. 

    I think you need to conspire with your thoughts a little longer before you post just for the sake of touting a "conspiracy"
    2 Months ago it was just a finger, then it was two. Last month it was the fist, and last week to the elbow....

    Update seems to have spawned a new bug. Fleet won't complete it repairs until you go to the map and re-enter base. Really too minor to both with a ticket so posting here

    The recent multiplicator is x7 x7 x7 x7...but that wouldnt work with an additional Tier 6 with the current tech (after the next garrison raidformat: sure!)
    So i am expecting a new multiplicator...like x5 x5 x5 x5 x5...or x6 x6 x6 x6 x6 (but that would be very hard).

    Nice one Kix Nor prizes on raid due to  the list being  Prev raid + bounty + TLC leaving me nothing to spend on.  Now right after said raid you come out with 1 TLC for Megas?  My mega still has 25 days cooking.  I been spending $500 week for last 3-4 months since I came back to playing.  Now for 2 weeks in row You made decisions to put nothing in the game to spend on.  Well done. 
    This is a gift for those that don't want to spend their life and $500 a week on a game. We have been suffering from content overload for sometime now. Chill a little.
