    Over 10 million points worth of new stuff. Even if the fleets are super easy, this is a **** of a grind. Why can't you space it out and slow it down?
    i agree it's a lot, however . .knowing all that will be available in almost every alien event for the next few months at the very least

    just get what you KNOW you'll be using in the near future and get the remaining later 

    speaking for myself, i'll be rather busy so i cant farm it all this event, so i'm gonna get the hull, propbably some tech with it too(but definitally not all of it), and build the hull empty (or with what i already got) and wait for next week's event to get the rest of the stuff i will need 
    I'm just a veteran who wants to pay his rent instead of buy coins XD

    We will, when its far too late to restructure our fleets to face it.

    with REFIT times we would need the video 2-3 weeks ahead, to be able to restructure our fleets

    personally i am going with a mixture of ENERGY, ALIEN and Projectile weapons on my Cruisers and Battleships

    Ridiculous having a thread to discuss strategy when we have no idea what the new fleets will look like. Clearly Kix doesnt care. They dont even have a full staff working on this game anymore.

    Historically, as in prior to xeno season, these strategy threads were a place to post and discuss strategies players found after the event started... back when we had very little to go on of what to expect for the event fleet. Kind of like this event.

    This is excellent advise. Making the new tech available in subsequent events is probably one of the best changes to the game compared to the game a year ago.

    So skip the marauder crap. You don't see anyone using them for anything other than cargo haulers anyway.

    I see it as the BP table, the drops of the XF RM are not guaranteed. You can hit the L70 AXIS Renegades for ease of access to the XF RM pieces, but the drops are not 100%. Because of this, they want to encourage people to hit the L80+ AXIS Renegade fleet, which have guaranteed XF RM drops.

    Wait so that was true about the drop of the XF RM? I thought that was a wind up. Talk about a stupid idea and trying to force players to hit new targets

    Yep just more bogus half answers from Chris cause sorry he is working on another kix game they actually care about. Less than 100% could be 90% or it could be 1%.

    In a few years, that game is going to suffer the same fate as VC is currently right now.

    The tech spotlight and forum post for this event show the marauder class void twin beam 5. I don’t see it in game, will it be a RI or will we finally get some marauder weapon BP?

    Yep absolutely that's why I won't ever play another kix game after VC. That's the thing kix doesnt understand. It isn't just about the profit for your current games but all future games. If you alienate the player base they won't play any future kix games.

    It is an RI. The only marauder bps are the marauder hulls. Everything is RI.

    What was the point of that comment anyways if you have nothing to add to the discussion?

    The only official information we have on Reckoning's AXIS Renegade Fleets from CM Chris is they will be full of cutters. So I would advise bringing something that can counter those fast blockade runners.

    What is stupid is trying to talk about an event, of which we have no information.

    We dont have information about the composition / weapons / battlefield of the fleets that the players are going to have to face ... whatever the players can comment, it is totally "speculative and counterproductive" ... so to say, that a Comment is totally out of place to say, that it is stupid to discuss something that we do not have information, it is totally legitimate.

    I don't think that speculation is "stupid" at all. It encourages thinking and has always been a part of the game.

    According to the rules of the forum, starting / sharing any misinformation / speculation with the other players is not allowed, therefore "encourage imagination" is not allowed.
