    - Frequency and availability of content in these strikes? We are going to try to get to the point where we're running these events more frequently than once a month. Strikes, Time Token RIOT, and Civil War are all supplementary activities to main events (Monthly Event, Decimation, and upcoming Alliance War), so as much as we can get these activities recurring and a part of the regular 'grind target schedule', the better. We are working on that.
    So if you run more than 1 Alien Strike a month...
    WIll that lead to:
    1) Concurring overlapping events?
    2) Shorter events like Decimation?
    3) Even fewer hours gap between events? (aka no timer to repair our fleets in-between events)


    Not sure on how it might affect the schedule. We'll have to see how things shake out when we're closer to December.

    OK. And so what about the content or more likely lack thereof in the boxes. We've been down this road before. Why should I spend time trying to get all 10 boxes of a particular level and end up with parts, armaments and so much res I can hold it all?

    Are these boxes going to be as worthless as those in the past?
    There's 20 boxes in there now, as you'll notice in the briefing, but the drop rates for those boxes are all the same as they have been.
    And so by drop rate do you mean the "price" of the boxes is the same or that what comes out of the box is the same?

    Perhaps that there are are now 20 boxes instead of 12 should be good, but I've taken all 12 boxes several times in the past with no patterns and a rare core. If the drop rate refers to what comes out of the boxes and it is the same, then this event will be worthless.

    With only ancient target how can we get 6T hulls?

    Can there be some pattern drop from the fleets?

    Even with 20 boxes, it will still take very long to mk up the ships.

    We really enjoyed the last special event where there were blank hull and credits as prizes, can we have more similar event for blank hulls and credits?

    Why would you make a tier 6 Subjected event with CURRENT TARGETS rather than old targets when you are offering Old tech and some even new tech?

    Why are ancients marked higher than Blitz?

    Why are the punisher resistors and disintegrator cannon items like 3-4x as much intel as in previous events?

    Addressing a few pieces of feedback:

    • No Classic Alien Targets? Our original design intention with these activities did include classic Alien targets, which is why it was mentioned when we first surfaced the idea to the community. However, as I'm sure you're tired of hearing me mention, these activities (and all elements of game design in general) are subject to change from when they're first announced. It was decided that Classic targets would not be included and we would stick with Ancient faction targets for the time being.

    Isnt a main point if this strike event to allow players entry into T6+ content? It makes no sense not to include, or have this exclusively based around, the original alien content that the entire rest of the game used to enter T6+

    Ancients are geared for players who already have xeno fleets, to force them into building axis fleets for greater farming efficiency. Please post a vid of someone effectively farming ancients with t5 tech..

    Can I ask why there is a limit to what we can buy in store ? . Surely with t7 on the door step wouldn't it be a good idea to just remove the 20 box limit if people have the time / fleets for these then likely they are trying for mk5 and 20 box limit ? Come January no one will bother with axis as the new toys come out and the whole cycle starts again, so we have December to farm and upgrade before t7 and you limit us to 20 boxs?

    Feedback :   Newest players seeking to get their first tier 6 hull Blueprint will probably opt for the Punisher Hull BP.  Why not skip to the guardian?  Because the Pun can be built at a lower level than the Guardian.  As such, it is good to see the Punisher be made available again.

    If you are able to build both then of course it is much better to get the Guardian hull BP.  

    The Alien cruiser theme should include all cruiser weapons & armor.  

    I feel the following tech is missing from this event listing --

    1)  Xeno Armored Thruster BP's
    2)  Xeno Armored Hold BP's

    If I had to guess, it looks as though Kixeye will be reserving ENAL armor BP's for the battleship themed event, EXAL for the cutter theme, and PRAL for the destroyer theme.

    SideNote: An alien form of the Binary thruster (both Xeno and AXIS types) would be a nice addition to our tech for the destroyer themed alien event.

    PS: Please make it easier to mark up tier 6 ships.  The random drop rates from boxes are absolutely terrible & discouraging to even try.
