    I'm a lower level, have ironclads and a fleet of punishers that I wanted to try out. Every one of them couldn't make it past the first turret in a 41. I've just been using my fangs in the campaign instead. The targets are for level 90+ apparently

    Punishers die at the first turret but what's the build on your fleet of ironclads? I can kill 41s on auto with roughly 5-6 minutes repair using 1 ironclad

    Amazing how turrets in the T5 targets launch volleys of missles even after they are destroyed, BS KIX

    This current raid has to be the worst of the charged armour raids so far.

    We should be able to clear a target in 1 hit  but the charge is being stripped a ridiculous rate, making the need for multiple retreats to complete a target.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the armour life decreased slowly after the charge was depleted, so you could chose between more damage or more time BUT unless you retreat when the charge is gone, your fleet is sunk.

    We need either more charge or the damage output to actually be balanced to the current tech.
    Naaa, it's a luxury item, remember?  And Kix said we wouldn't need Rad armour for this raid either. 
    it was only termed a "luxury item" when it was first released and wasn't working quite right
    I believe the specific wording from the GD was "until we get the bugs worked out, this should be considered a luxury item."
    that took about a week
    since then, it is common knowledge that the charged armor is the best armor in the game for PvE targets.

    radiation damage is not a problem as long as you don't sit in the fire fields....

    Seriously Kix, what's up with the meager resource payouts during raids recently? The cargo capacity of the skirmish fleets is annoying small, but a full buccanneer fleet should be able to hold 20M, 100M at 500%. I only have a three-ship fleet and even that fleets comes home after a T7 target with less than 80% res? Seriously, WTH. Was expecting to be able to fill up with res during this raid. The raid is an utter disaster, you got greedy by giving the (crappy) auto-hull as a prize last event without enough time to build the skill hull after we could win it, you said it wouldn't be required to have the skill hull this event but the bonus from the T7 targets is higher than a single target payout, points payout is meager, and you won't even give out some res? Seriously? You thought that last years siege raid was such a success that you would repeat that utter disaster by giving out the auto hull first again?

    Gotta ask do you have any cm speicals on?  FLCM would be the best choice since it will give your phalanx range advantage over the sprint thus allowing the phalanx to shoot at the missiles and the sprint to shoot at the clusters of rockets as intended.. If your sprint fires at the missile and misses the phalanx will no shoot at it again. The best way to handle the entire deal tho is 3 boats with 1 sprint each (dont need a cm special) and then 1 boat with 2 phalanx 4 and FLCM...

    I think everyone needs to give it a chance and work on your driving. It's tough, but not as bad as everyone makes it sound.

    I don't mind the targets. I have no problems with them. My old Ironclads do a B-set for less than 30 minutes damage. My headache comes from having to leave the S-targets three times to recharge my panels on my Buckaneers. They nerfed the panels so badly they are almost useless. In and out, in and out, in and out of the target. The raid has been in progress for 11 hours now in 226 and only 17 players have over a million points. This is very disappointing.

    you could always sing the hokey cokey while your in and out
    you keep whining like me but we are still here, i love broken pixels, how about you

    Just testing out a few different fleet types and it seems my buccs. take more damage in the targets then my ironclads do. this was tested in 61,63,65 why would my old fleet be so much better then this new higher tier fleet? So should I refit my ironclads?

    And I say again to Kix: Games should be fun, fun needs choice; proscribing: play with this Hull + this weapon - or die & go away - is not Fun. All the target variation is nice but there needs to be more freedom of choice re hulls & weapons.
    I cant agree more, there needs to be choice in your builds they may not be as effective in targets then the recommended builds on certain hulls. but they could still be used. You can introduce new equipment without making other equipment obsolete.

    Under 40k players for a raid seems to be the norm now. Way to go Kixeye another one I pass on!

    Sure you up the points in B sets (60s) but also the damage.  Was doing 2 complete sets last night on auto then repairing, now barley making it through one set.  Same crew and all legendary ranked.  
    Yep....like my alli mate said....

    The 24hr damage multiplier has engaged.


    You can flag it all you want, we all know its true.

    Same fleet of IC’s on auto in a 41 and I have seen damage vary from 3 mins 5 secs to 38 mins 41 secs.... little extreme? Oh btw while driving have seen up to 20 mins variations in damage on them. The 60’s are same way. Mind blown

    Yeah, no.  I just ran through a pair of 60 sets and am getting my standard 1.5-hour repair bill.

    ignoring all the stuff we hate for a sec, i have 1 other issue with this raid and s target - ...
    We are getting almost no res from these targtes, so as i build ships, i'm running out of res.
    I'd rather not end up going back to old days of collecting res for hours. That is an insult to your experienced players, and easy for u to resolve, and little to no cost to you.
    Please UP the RES from S target!!!

    I have been noticing newer targets have been paying out less and less resources. My money's on to make more people do yet another chore like collecting off cargo. Or collecting off their campaigns. You can no longer rely on collect basepart or titanium and so on to fill your ships. The older targets still have a good amount but everything new has crap.

    The boats will take random detours around the oil rigs and shipyards based on, it appears, the whims of the fae.  Those random detours will change everything.

    that gets unlocked later on into the raid, so you could basically sleep half of the entire raid if you wanted.
    ever had  a problem where you log on and someone is hitting your base, and wanted to view the world map while it happens? try this.
    1/select leadersboard.
    2/select player's medals.
    3/select any player there.
    4/select "find base"
    that may or may not take you to world map.

    My ironclads were doing the 60s targets for repairs in the dock ranging from insta (per ship) to 3 minutes wait before I went to bed. The 3 sets I've done since waking up have my repairs at double yesterdays numbers for 61 and 65, but slightly less for 63s. I did 3 sets to make sure it wasn't just my groggy driving. Nope, its kix's adjustments.
