    Kixeye's customer service never ceases to amaze me. they awarded me 1000 "UNSECURED" bounty points because of the base defense problem...which in turn was immediately taken upon getting hit...so, like usual, I end up with the s hitty end of the stick...thanks

    so I have done bounty and found the finder is absolute garbage, I had 2 people in the same sector as me and it could not find them on a map with arrows pointing to them and everything else blacked out, it also can't seem to find any one near my level. I am a lvl 68 I do  not want to see someone who is 30+ levels to me I want to see someone I have a chance to hit and win, I don't want to turn around every time to find some 100+ player hitting me but that's all I see how is this supposed to be fun???

    It specifically says "In bounty 3", IIRC.

    If touching that nexus you should get the 4.5K.... I cant see why if someone is touching another Nexus you would get that payout... It says you must be linked to claim prize not prizes !!

    Can't claim a prize until Bounty is over, yet there is no icon anywhere to access Bounty so that I can now claim a prize.

    Why didn't Kixeye reply to my ticket concerning lost bounty points not awarded - now bounty is over yet and again spent money for nothing!!
    It begs the question what is the point of doing events etc. if when they go wrong you dont even get the blessing of a response??

    Just wanted to suggest for Bounty 5 that you look at the bubble time you have arbitrarily assigned in this event. I think you should increase it somewhat. I have had no problem myself but the smaller guys that try this event are getting murdered. Perhaps there are other ways to help these pirates; 4 days of being fish fries stinks. 
    The best way to help the small and medium players is to scrap the rule about only hitting bases with more bounty IMHO ..What you need is a mini Bounty for the weaker players so they can hit each other ..forcing guys with Malice or Vendetta to hit a level 100 plus base because thats the only base with more bounty is pointless ..they sink before they get in  the door

    I must say kudos Kixeye, this was the best bounty event yet. The balance was pretty good, most of the bugs were fixed or less obvious amnd most important it was fun. The Nexus part was an interesting twist that I didn't participate in since my alliance is weak in that regard - perhaps that could be made more inclusive somehow while still maintaining the challenge? Anyway, good work, much better than the previous buggy messes.

    Would be nice to see Locator improved for those of us who don't want to insect during bounty and there's still an issue with cheating (frubbles and the like) but better than I expected. Perhaps a return of the "attacker ante" as well as the defender bonus might help there,

    I keep finding dead bases. :(  They show up in locater as being worth bounty.  I check again before I hit and still worth bounty.  I hit, they are already dead, and then it bubbles them.  I get nothing.  Kix cs wants me to send vid but I dont want to use that software.  Can anybody else having this problem post a vid for them?  I cant be the only one this is happening too.  
    This has been a major problem in all Bounty events and I have reported it in Bounty 1, 2 and 3.

    Bounty1: REQUEST #3909076 - Including pictures
    Bounty2: REQUEST #3950534 - Including pictures
    Bounty3: REQUEST #3966050 - Including pictures and video

    Answer was, "we will look into it"...

    Bounty4: Same thing happens. I have not reported this to CS, since there seems to be little use in doing so.

    Feel free to reference my tickets for video proof that this is happening and how it is occurring. I have given up.

    Can CM or one of the crew chime in on prizes....... It would VERY HELPFUL to us to know if you plan on offering any of the hulls/specials in the Raid that you are offering during the BOUNTY. This way we can choose wisely while spending our premium points so we don't waste it on something we can also get NEXT week.

    If the Kings Writ does the same thing the other hulls that have been released did, then it should be out next raid.

    Because when it got merged, it is no longer considered a poll and is more or less just a comment in the thread.

    I was hoping myself to get 1 more prize but I wasn't counting on getting another free 800 points at the exact second the event ended that couldn't be stolen. Only thing you could count on as they stated was secured bounty. You should of hit more bases

    Personally I like Bounty.

    Base defence should pay out the same as base attack.

    There should be a cap on the level of fleet that can attack a base, to stop people abusing the system with a gb/longboat giving free points to each other.

    Stop nerfing the prizes as soon as it is out there for a month. Rages is now super weak compared to when they came out.

    Stop reducing the payout for players, the 2nd bounty's payout was the best balanced so far imo.

    Increase the availability of existing prizes, maybe once a player owns a prize, let it fill that space with something he/she does not have, or tokens.

    And stop being cheap on the points that remains. With 1.700 the lowest available prize, offer titanium/uranium for the unused points.

    I played 8 hours a day roughly, hitting anyone i could with bounty, regardless of level, 1 in 15 bases where not dead, so getting bounty by base hitting was difficult. I focused on a guarantee payout by hitting bandits. My issue is simple, I understand Kix said the bonus Bandit are considered rare, but this now make 2 bounty events I have never even seen a single one.
    I would suggest an increase or remove them entirely, hate playing the shell game, when it's typically a rigged game anyway
