Hey everyone,

We wanted to share some following information about the upcoming Garrison / FM content and targets:

Garrison & Forsaken Mission

When we originally announced the change with the Garrison class, we mentioned that a new Garrison hull would be offered in the 3rd month of each cycle. Given the fact that we still plan to do an early-access offering of the next cycle’s hull in the 4th month, we just didn’t feel that there was enough time for players to both build their new Garrison fleet, as well as the next cycle’s fleet.

In order to mitigate that issue, we’re going to be offering the new Garrison Hull in 2nd month of each cycle instead.

In order to adjust our current plan to the new one, the first instance of this will occur in the February Raid. The new Garrison Hull, Inferno Dragon, will be the main prize for the February Raid. Upon the Forsaken Mission returning the following week, a new top tier Garrison target will be available (with a higher point payout), where a proper Inferno Dragon build will have the best results. With the Inferno Dragon specifically, we don’t feel it necessary to create CICs, so that will also be 1 less component you have to worry about. Ideally, we’d like to not have CICs for any 2018 Garrison hull to keep things simple, but we’re open to it if players feel otherwise.

Looking towards the Garrison target themselves, old targets are not going to disappear immediately. Additionally, there will initially be no change in the point payout for the older Garrison targets. That means if you don’t have Inferno Dragon ready yet (or even own it), you’re not going to be behind right away. Given the history of the Forsaken Mission, we’re more conscious than ever how important those targets and hulls are for players, and are committed to making any target or content adjustments as smooth of an experience as possible. Once we’ve found the right rhythm for how to handle these transitions, we’re hoping to be able to replicate it each quarter so that the player experience is fairly seamless. We’ve know we’ve messed up Forsaken Mission transitions in the past, and are not looking to do a repeat performance in 2018.


Thanks!
