    Look up the DC Platoon fleet, that's what it'll be, despite its incorrect label.

    There will be a prize exchange if you manage to score more than 2 million points.

    Lol why do the event fleets spawn so close? You are always going to get hit by the spectres, especially when you're setting up a battleship line. Another event that needs a rework, kixeye. Bring it back to the old event ways, where it's fun

    Watch videos from the Devastation event, these fleet are old and can be done with ease.

    I don´t want to seem fussy ... but when the "spectre wings" have had more life than a "yellowjacket Drone II" or a "Redhawk Drone"? ... because my mk4 suppressor with about 1600 dps can not destroy them.

    Also ... if the "spectre wings" are "base squadrons", which the players can not equip in their carriers, why can the DC fleets?

    How are you so certain they are the wings? We got spectre squads too, that we can equip to carriers.

    I don't find the Spectre Squadrons particularly tough?

    Actually what I find is the fleets are kinda easy, and the event is a bit of a boring grind because the most you can get per hit is only 60k. 34 hits to get 2 million points...  I guess it could be worse

    I have no idea what you are using, but I use two anni's, two vector hellfires and one vector vigi along with the paladin,  and its free rep everytime.

    It is a stupid event, why you made it so hard, I am taking 10 minutes damage on my fleets, and I am flying level 84 in AI against a 60... Kixeye, you have no respect for the player base :wink:

    Well I really hope this RIOT run proves a success because I really like these time token riots. Short, highly useful prizes, and tough but fun DC fleets. Last time I stopped at 1 million just piloting 65s, but this time I was able to hit the 2m within 2 hours play by piloting 65s and concurrently autoing 40-50 with two other xeno/axis fleets. 
    Because I like the Condor!

    @CM Chris  if these riots are going to be a recurring thing going forward, can you ask the dev team to update the res ratios to 40/40/20 or whatever they are normally nowadays?  I'd like to be getting more than 1.5 mil ore for a 65 please and thank you.

    The proper ratio is 35/35/30, and I doubt that the ratio will be adjusted. Much like the Crossfire fleet, it's old/recycled data. 

    On another hand, it is annoying to hit just one specific fleet for this "Riot". If it were following the traditional rules, it'd make people much happier.

    While that was stated in the past, it did in fact have an exchange at the end. So, it would be wise to collect as much points as possibly for a potential exchange. Collecting your derelicts will also help, despite them being H3 heavy.

    I would like to see some sort of higher level fleets being offered. This event is just working with fleets that are lower levels but tuned for higher DPS. Why not actually make the lvl 65 fleet DPS similar to other 65s or just raise the **** level? Was interesting to compare that an ancient reaper gave less damage to a punisher than the "65s" flying around in these riots.

    At least the double tokens is better than past riots but as stated about past ones, not a real riot. It has specified targets. More like a skirmish, lol.

    These fleets are from a previous event and are very doable with battleships. Cruisers are not suited for the event. You need to be using the right ships and actual piloting will be needed.

    Good: Enough 65s spawn, thanks you.
    Bad: Little ore in the fleets, boring grind.

    Riot done with spare 500k in case there is a res exchange. Hitting raiders 50 with 2 mke exterminators with xeno shatter, 1 mke pun with xeno dis cannons, 1 mke surpressor with xeno seekers and mk4 paladin with hunters and yellowjackets. In box formation with destroyers in slot 1 and 3, pun in slot 2, paladin behind pun and surpressor either side of paladin. AI off, no movement at all. Bam insta repair. 2 million in 6 hours.

    That is good - I typically make 5-6 fleets of a xeno/DC mix and hit all kinds of levels, but I have to use ai because I'm always in sector moving my 4-6 fleets around. This event kind of stops that method,  but I do have one auto fleet going while I hit 65s :p

    Did I say I was having trouble with them? Did I say I was only using cruisers? No. 

    I said it was interesting to see that a cruiser, made to be bait, took less damage from an ancient repaer 80 than a 65 Demon Corp Fleet. I am stating DPS seems to be tuned differently for these fleets compared to other similar level fleets from other events. 

    ***Edit
    So that being said, am I the only one that thinks these fleets tend to pack more of a punch than other 65 comparatively? Just seems odd to me. Then again, with the direction going towards mobile users for the game, this event puzzles me in general for how it is built.

    I have my guardian/enforcer/paladin mix but use that for alien and deceiver events. The fleet use above is for farming, planet/strike and riots.

    This event needs 70+ fleets to speed up progress because it takes too long.
