    It would be great if we could get a preview of the 89 and 115 targets before next weeks changeover. Either as part of the fm this week, or maybe as bonus cup targets this weekend. It would give everyone a chance to (freak out and blow up the forum) try the new targets.

    I agree, seems that everyone is focused on the prizes and what we as players could get.....but it all means nothing if what is required to get it is crazy.....think Hunter PP8!!!! 

    If they kept the targets the same, that would be the best solution ever!!! it would also give them more time to fix the glitches that they have already in the game...

    seriously? They didn't listen, this is their way to spoon-fed the changes so that all think: "ok, I can swallow this".
    - they are still changing the FM (one week delay is no cancellation)
    - they are still changing the Token output
    - they are still changing the targets
    - they are still making it more work

    and my main concern: if you can't do 115's your screwed. With this game it is usually: "if you have the fleets it is easy, if you don't it is almost impossible". 

    It would be nice if they drop the 103, and add the 115 next to the 113. Gives us the chance to work towards it.

    It would be better if they kept the targets the same 88 & 113, or if they are (will) do it, phase them in like they have done everything else...so have the 113 running alongside the 115...so people can still get their "stuff" and try the new targets as well

    Some people have asked about saving Treasure Chests.  These are going to be items that you will be limited to one each of,  so you will not be able to save stacks of them.  
    Bit of a **** move, quite frankly.

    The chests contain build tokens.  There should always be enough of a build going on that you can use the tokens quickly.

    I agree.  This is the biggest problem here - a lot of players aren't sure they can do the 115s because we have no sense of what they will look like.  There's a lot of speculation that they'll be the modified 113s from the Icebreaker campaign but we aren't sure, and so we're stuck in a holding pattern.  Overlapping, and giving us the time to figure it out, would be a wise move by Kixeye.

    You should be aiming higher than 88s with that fleet, I'm getting T5 with a Zelos & 2 Citadels, although I do take enough damage that I won't do it twice a day

    As a Mod will tell you, submit a ticket. If you don't know how, I know one of the Mods has a link as part of his signature.
    You've been around plenty, if you don't know how to deal with CS, whose fault is that?
    I hope that you still have copies of your receipts.

    Sorry , but it's just Smoke an mirrors ..  Remember who this is , they give nothing away with out a high cost..
    you hadnt noticed that the current fm is way too easy?
    Point is they shouldnt change map targets until after the specific raid so the Garrison raid... of which they already changed. Sure they can be easy but they did it to themselves by making the targets like this in the beginning. They should have made it the "appropriate" difficulty in the beginning. Besides the point tho they have changed targets mid season in the past anyways so noone should be surprised. Also many ppl cant do the fm. They lack the "tech" or tenacity of actually researching and doing targets

    How about the lower levels? How can we survive if it is harder than the research garrison?

    How's this for an option, keep everything the same, but remove the 2 reset limit...allow the FM to be reset as many times as someone wants......help them catch up, everyone stays happy as the fleets that players have spent months and/or $$$$ will still be good 
    Actually, helping people catch up is the one thing the new system (the explanation of which has been prematurely archived) is going to be way better at. You'll be able to buy as many prizes as you are able earn points for, plus the chests with tokens will be available to everyone even if they don't have all the prizes. No more being limited to one prize per FM run, so the real reason for the 1 reset (not 2) goes away entirely.

    Most of the people screaming in this thread aren't in a catch-up situation, and are simply venting because they fear change. Personally I'm adopting a wait-and-see approach rather than assuming the worst.

    how many chest can purchase from the coming FM?

    1 from each tier, it must be used before getting another from the same tier.

    you can bet with kixeyes history this is going to cost coin just to complete the FM there's no way it will be anything but harder targets and more points the only consistent thing kixeye has ever done is lie about whats coming up and then change it to make it even harder this is a dying game and at this point there is nothing these thieves and liars can do to save it

    what really bothers me is a lot of my alliance mates have spent considerable time building the fleets to do the current weekly targets and now they are changing them again. me personally i will adapt and get it done but this is seriously about the fourth time kixeye has done this to them, as soon as they get the ships built and are starting to get the build tokens they screw them over even after assurances that the weekly would NOT change for a year. sooner or later the other shoe will drop and people will move on from this.

    I only recently reached t5 token level - had perhaps 3 weeks at that stage as things were added which made me go backwards and needed to get back to tokens.   Players a few months ahead of me have had enormous advantage in builds and now - this new format will most likely **** me to very little token-based building, whilst others will doubtless have been in the right place at the right time with the right tech.   maybe there will be some good in it, but after months of getting close to tokens, I will probably still be behind.
