I haven't been able to save more than 300 mil ore in almost a year. You promised resource riots, but if you ever had one I missed it. We have a riot every other day, but aren't allowed to exchange points for res. What gives? Free ships left and right but no res to refit them, upgrades on all kinds of base modules, but no res to start them. We need resources. Please. @CM Chris

     --snip-- You promised resource riots --snip--

    I don't think they ever promised that.  Perhaps you misinterpreted that every Planet and Sector Strike has options to buy resources for intel?   

    Some tips:  It's common to make fleets that are dedicated to hauling cargo.  During the last major event I had them following my hunting fleets.  I acquired enough resources to make the final ship factory upgrade.   If you're lazy about it, ask people in sector chat if you can take from their kills.  Most people tend on the generous side, especially during an event.  You can gain a fair amount of resources that way as well.

    I single handedly hauled over 68 million resources every flight from the alien wormhole during the crafting event. In 2 trips I had 1/3 of what you say you cannot obtain.

    There's a far cry of difference between "high-level resource supply runs" and "resource riots".  The former implies ships you need to down in order to obtain said resources.  The latter implies the old style riots where you exchange intel for resources.  As far as I understand it, those old style Riots are something that Kixeye wanted to move away from.

    Yes but I'm pretty sure Jeremy was referring to the resource supply runs, not an actual RIOT for resources.

    As much as I want resources to get the FB16 upgrade running, I don't want to risk getting hit by stealing, even if it's in the Colony sector. That said, I did get a lot of Ore and AM in the crafting event. Let's see how many can figure out how.

    Nope. It's often overlooked because it frustrates players.

    No I think it’s from the crafting boxes. Less patterns and more Rez drops per roll on opening the boxes.

    You must admit, it's a bold move. People avoid the Xeno boxes due to the horrendous drop rates. But, they're missing out on valuable resources.

    yeah i picked up a few punisher boxes, after i maxed out the Guardians, even thou i will probably never craft or build them again.

    i ended up with about 600+ million Mineral and AM from collecting while i was waiting to get a harvester hit, plus i wasted at least the same in Helium as i am at MAX capacity on Helium (OVER 1.8 BILLION)

    Fair point.  Though the OP was also saying that he could not save resources for the past year, when these rollouts only began on the 11th of December.  So, what, a month last year accounts for a year's worth of progress?  If you look more closely and see that the roll out for that particular event began on the 18th...

    Also, you may wish to see this thread:  https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/721110

    There was a bug in their payouts, so rather than simply having the runs occur but frustrating players with not giving correct payouts, the event is being fixed at the moment. 

    Anyway, as for the chests that drop resources as well as patterns and parts, fine, I stand corrected.  In my mind though, you still have to kill things for them.  *Shrugs*, to each their own logic.

    No, tell me when resource riots were promised.  I don't recall that ever being a thing.

    If they announce that there will be resources supply run on week schedule then i would take that as promise to have them there. Otherwise why announce it at all?

    I don't understand why people have trouble getting res. Destroyer fleets of (VSEC LEVEL!) Impulse Lances and/or Damocles destroyers with a Carrier can Auto up to Elite 50 Cargo with minimal rep (Hit Radiers for bonus crafting material). Those run all the time and spawn in the system rings so you can avoid Aggro. Mark them up, and/or add a swarm Carrier and you can do 53s and 55s, on Auto. The 55s hurt a lot more but throw in some Exterminators or Liberators and you can do 55s almost endlessly, on Auto. I've farmed 100 million+ ore with Insta rep on the whole fleet. All you have to do is keep the cargo fleets running. You can do it on mobile while waiting at the doctor's office or watching TV. It's boring but that's why they call it a grind.

    How long did it take you to get that 100 mil ore? I example just used over 300 mil ore with in 5 min. I need at least 300-400 mil every 3 days at least just do keep my upgrades and crafting going. And when i start  fleetbay upgrade 1,2 mil ore. Before these new upgrades come i had no real problem with ore but now i farm like 1,5-2 mil ore per week and still running low. Tried vega55-s. Did not cut it. moved on to high lvl alien fleets to get more ressies per fleet.

    An Elite 50-55 has about (vaguely rounding) 5 million ore in it. How long does it take you to kill 20 or so fleets? How many destroyer fleets can you fly? How many cargo fleets can you run? Is there competition for targets? I can say it didn't take me very long. I even got a bonus for doing a BA mission at the same time.

    I example killing alien fleets and collect all the cargo and getting 20 mil ore per fleet. I stick to these and even that takes too **** long if you ask me. Jumping with jav so i dont waste time to fly around. Soon i dont need to upgrade tech buildings anymore and then this problem for me at least going away. I think i have only factory last upgrade left and then i have only ressies modules to upgrade but these dont take so much ore anymore.

    well I needed 500 million mineral to do my final fleet bay upgrade. I went 13 seconds away to an alliance-less base with 5 cargo ships and one siege driver trident. 30 minutes later I had 200m mineral out of him. Flew to the next planet and repeated it. Now I'm done with 100m mineral left over. How hard is this? Find someone killing lvl 100 fleets and steal their cargo or ask them for it. 30m per haul. 

    If you want resources you actually have to get on the chat and ask people for it, or just kill someone and take it for yourself. Bunch of care-bears in this chat now. I already said I filled up all my storages by hauling 80m every 5 minutes from the crafting runs in the alien sector. I literally had every green ship I owned out there hauling cargo, and I still couldn't take it all.    How hard can this possibly be?  I'm one of those people who will GIVE you free cargo from my base if you ask me - but no one asks.
