    You arent even supposed to do decimation because youre only mid level. Go get tier 6 tech then come back and try again. Kix has alr made this clear.

    At first, the Ancient Fortress apparently had a ridiculous layout... but when I got to deal with one, it was actually fun

    Ever saw Geir's Fortress in Eradication? Watch the event trailer for a view of it. That's what these new Outposts (called Fortress) are based off from. 

    If you weed out the initial Reapers and the Ancient Harvester, you get about 9K on a L90. Not worth it. And they reheal back to 100% if not finished in one go.

    This event is bull! all of 1k never gets past phase 2 because no one is hitting the stupid hive fleets! The stupid thing keeps resetting! I've been waiting for hours for phase 3 to come... Why can't you just have a good balance of different fleet types so people actually participate? 
    The problem with this game is the power curves. Just look at the graphs I made. Said no vega conflict player ever

    Looks like harvesters are also too strong that only 70 get attacked. What seemed to be fun event turn out not worth doing at all. Nice one kixeye. Good joke.

    yeah man finally after about 5 hours of waiting I got to hit some harvesters, one 80 and two 70s cost me 9 hours of rep for only 420k... and all my axis cruisers are mark 3+.

    This event seems to be testing some of the more massive targets and their power curves. With my more limited time to play lately, I rather enjoy a 1-10 hit reap and repair method, but some of these things are just too hard. 100 Hive loses you 3 punisher cruisers or guardian cruisers no matter what you do, and mine are build for such a fight. I feel that is a bit much considering it got me a whole half an elite credit. I won't even look at the alien bases  ...   In general this event seems too hard/strong for most players   ....  again.    Lack of turncoats and renegades makes it incredibly boring as well.    Phases still suck.    But at least there are no mind-numbingly stupid bugs this time.

    Chris, fix level 80 outposts, they have normal hp, but deal insane damage, much more than level 100 outposts. Lv90 outposts give me about 2 hours repair, but lv80 gave almost 6 hours.

    Indeed they are not spawning, and without MK2 there is not need to farm for higher MKs.

    Funny is the message that appears when looking for the tagged outpost... "wait for more to spawn", I wonder why wasting players time?

    They actually spawn, but there is a very limited amount of them and they are replaced by level 80 on the same area, because they share the spawn field. And lv80 is OP and nobody attacks them.
    Like i said before, kixeye didn't prepare the game for the merge and they don't care about such inferior things.

    I am not sure if level 80 is OP or not, the issue I have is that 80 drop different boxes from 70, there is no logic in having so limited amount of 70 compared to 80, and yes you care correct they share the same spawn field which also make very little logic... I am not sure if the reason is the one you stated, since the spawn logic has been the same flawed one since the introduction of those fields...

    Now there is a shortage of level 100 bases.. the outpost spawn rate definitely needs to be increased.

    Not only that but in one sector it got to phase 2 and there wasn't enough fleets being hit so it skipped phase 3 altogether.  They do realize that players in other sectors may actually travel to a different sector to hit the fleets they want, so cancelling phases because of a lack of usage is really lame.

    come on Kix you really think we the mid level player's can do this?
    No they don't think the Mid Level Player can do Decimations.   Decimation is for grabbing the elite tech.  Or catching that one ship BP you missed in the main.  Notice that all the prizes in this event have to do with going even higher on either your base or getting elite tokens to have fully marked ships.  

    This event is not for Mid-level players who are just grabbing t6 tech.   It never has been.

    Decimation isn't meant for mid to low players.

    Damnit Chris, denied me the chance to complain that phase 2 is taking long

    (sorry if I'm repeating this but a part of what I wrote in my last comment didn't make it or I'm having some sort of bug that doesn't let me see it.. So I'll type it here again) (can't edit on phone :/ )

    I agree @CM Chris blitz reapers would be lovely to have, imo they are the most fun reapers edition so far

    I was wondering if turncoats will ever appear again in future events

    Thank you for the phase shortening Chris. Yes, infact, we would like to see a lot of variety in all of the events. Would it be too much to ask for decievers and renegades in phase 1, blitz and hive to appear in phase 2, and phase 3 kept the same since it's timed?  I don't think that is too much to ask and would make the event much more fun.

    Just been hitting level 70 ancient hives and then one opened with only 1 hive? So I tried to complete the battle, lost about 7.5 hours repair on my cutters. But I thought hey points. When I left, it was a level 75 Huh? Zero points for decimation (even though I thought I saw 500k flash up) and I am receiving part boxes?. Whats going on? Some chatter in the sector chat suggests its a known bug. But I can't find a forum post on it. What are these supposed xeno/axis supplier runs? Why are they coming out of the decimation alien worm holes during an event? I've raised a ticket. Now to wait till tomorrow for my fleet to fix :(

    There is a difference between the Hives that spawn for supply runs and those that coincide with the Decimation. Sounds like you hit the former. Watch the name of the alien spires. Hit the wrong one and it'll cost you.
