    This is NOT ok. Not even a little.
    I real feel pity for you guys. You do all the testing and streaming, trying to help the community so they can be halfway prepared for the raid. But then it turns out Kixeye only uses you as guinea pigs so they can make the raid even harder, and spit in your faces as much as everyone else's. It is shocking how this company treats their customers.
    That is why I said in another thread they need to not make the cats meow fleet for preview servers.  Reason #1 there is a preview server is the players are "smarter " at playing than the developers. They want to see what the majic build and path will be so they can change it.  Cant go there making the best set up hitting it with the best path.  Then Kix changes it (why they had the preview) and the entire community has refit to what was suggested and all have to do it all over.   Preview put on the weapon and armor hit target like your driving a bulldozer take mental notes holes you see wait for raid to come out. 
    Because you have Hydras built? Maybe you're the problem then. lol

    Alos, what are you going to refit in place of the charged armor?!?
    no I dont have hydra built not going to make it. It does not take a rocket scientist to know the only reason there is a preview server is to see how players are going to hit the targets and what the build is going to be.  That is all they are looking for so they can tue the target. Common knowledge the players "play" better than the designers/devs.  

    Knowing that why would you ever go on one and make the absolute perfect build and break the target.

    wow
    the nerve you guys have is quite impressive
    rampage how do you sleep at nite knowing you work for such a blatantly corrupt game?
    Because he gets paid and other players are still dumb enough to fork over money and still get mad when crap like this happens.
    yep this adds salt to the wound of my expectations of the upcoming raid. i thought the raid briefing was bad on its own this just makes it worse.

    I'm holding judgement, but it sure would have been nice to have done this change in time for the preview to test it.  Such a big reduction seems like you went overboard (just a guess)

    well people just dont do this raid. you dumbass super coiners that have to get a billion points every raid no matter what- dont do it.there comes a time when we have to stand up for this. sending tickets are worthless because it takes the 7 days after the event to answer anyway & then they are no friggin help

    i cant believe they'd re-balance the armors to make it a bit easier for the average player, rather than just having them be completely wiped out.

    how dare they??

    this is an outrage!!

    I cant believe you actually believe that.  Remember there have been NO changes to the FM at all............ @ weeks ago we made a change to FM we are rolling back.   I could go on and on. I assure you this will in no way shape of forum benefit anyone who does not have charged armors. It is going to be a full out damage fest and those without are really going to be hurting.

    well given every other raid there is a ton of crying before the raid.

    then after a few hours the vids come out  on how to do it for free.

    i'm not overly concerned.

    you really think they are going to make it easier?  You are either trolling or off your meds. Videos already showed that the charged armor would barely work, especially when getting hit due to the hit boxes being messed up. But for some reason you got something out of the CMs comment that no one else did.  They said they were reducing the effectiveness of charged armor.  Not once...anywhere did they say they were reducing the difficulty of the target.

    Captains,

    In your test of the event targets for the event we have discovered that the Ballistic Charged Armor was not balanced properly.  We have reduced the damage reduction and the amor pool.  It was determined that the charged armor was too effective, and difference between those who had and did not have charged armor would have been too great in the event targets.  The Radioactive Charged armor (C1-R) is going to be changed to match this value as well.  

    Changes:

    Charged Zynthonite Armor C1-C           

      Old Values             

    New Values

    Ballistic Armor Pool

    763,348

    254,449

    Ballistic Damage Reduction

    120,000

    12,000

    Thank you for you understanding for this last minute change before the start of the event tomorrow.  This changes are scheduled to be applied by hotfix this evening.




    However if you feel players are in the wrong, PLEASE point out where they said/implied or even if they have a history of making changes for the better without a massive uproar being the impetus of said "rebalancing".

    there have been a few raids where damage has been dialled back due to it being over the top.

    as well as a few where its been dialled up due to a lack of damage.

    reducing those values reduces the difference between the haves and have nots. I am a have but i'd prefer the game to be more accessible to the have nots.

    I am sure your not I forgot you are the greatest thing since sliced cheese. I am sure you will be killing both top targets for 1 min map repair on full auto. I will watch the video you post of you doing that and will do the same...... Wait you dont make videos  so I will just look at the leader board I am sure you will be in the top 100.

    I usually find target weaknesses and post easy how to's....not this time. Kixeye used the preview server against us. They have used my videos to hotfix the last raid when I posted the hook switch video. I will share the easy tricks with my alliance....only The topdogs doing the preview targets for instant map repair......I wish you had tested realistic fleets instead.
