    Of course it's build this, now build that, now refit this, now refit that, how else are they going to make money to keep the business going and pay high salaries so employees can afford expensive homes in the Bay Area of California?  A business is in business to make a profit, I run a business and that's how I run it, as do some of you reading this.  So the only decision you have to make is do you want to spend money playing a game with no tangible rewards nor any way to sell your investment when you decide to quit the game?  I think Kixeye could get more coiners if they allowed base owners to sell their bases perhaps on a Kixeye page, and perhaps in a bid type of format where the bidders can look at the base and the ships that come with it, and the money made in the bid goes to the seller of the base with a 10% auction fee going to Kixeye so Kixeye makes enough money to send a check or credit card reimbursement to the seller.

    Wow another load of chit.. You`re complete IDIOTS to mess up the cornerstone in the game... Given the fact, that its not even 3 month ago, when you were saying, there would be no changes to fm-targets, and then you change them anyway.. **** for not listening to players feedbacks, and up yours for not slowing down and give us time to handle the whole "transition".. morons. grrr
    To be fair, 3 months ago they said they would be changing them. Might be time for you to re-visit the State of the Game post

    This is not going to be pretty. Well I hope at least the new fm hull will have a shorter build time like the conqueror hulls.

    What A Real Flipping Joke, They Said Tweak The FM's From Time To Time, They Said Nothing About Big Changes & Over Hauls... ;(

    Good news for me since I got Bucc from the "Path to the Continent". I can maybe get the new Garrison Hull during the raid:)

    To mitigate any potential issues with scheduling overlap, could we be allowed to use the Conquerer Ship Yard to also build Garrison ships?

    If the hull , weapon and special is for doing the FM , put it on the FM prizes, in the higher tier, so we can get FM gear with FM fleet.

    That would make sense, might as well add some build and VXP tokens for said hull in there as well, as one of the "options" once you have redeemed all prizes in the list below.


    Of course, doing both of those would make too much sense, and this is Kixeye we are talking about.

    i think kix is eating more than they can chew , said fm was going to change a little time to time and we dont need other hulls , so we have to build several hulls for raids and now we have also to build new forsaken mission fleet , if we can get them for sure 1000000000000 pts to get them , kix making sure we dont play the game , thanks as always , changes means changes not increase of damage and dont trust the c1c , i think is the new charged armor business ,maybe will be just for the raids at the end they will become chores x 500 damage and non half rep time , keep killing the game kix , you are making a great job on that for sure

    everyone need to calm their jets.. it is not an fm every 3 months.. they stated they were going to offer the new fm hull in month 3 of the raid..instead they changed that to offering it in month 2 of raids.. slowly read through first post..word by word in needed

    Since people are lashing out at me for stating the obvious, it's clear no one read the SotG. If you did it would be no surprise that targets will be changing. That's what we lost when Garrison went from a raid cycle class to dedicated weekly raid format. So yes, targets will change. New FM tech will come out every 4 months. 

    https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/719526/p1

    Don't shoot the messenger, this information has been available for months - 2+ months now. If you're somehow surprised.. I don't know what to tell you.

    Doesn't mean I agree with the whole FM BS going on right now. But it makes no sense to flip out over it thinking the targets wouldn't change under this new plan and that new tech for the FM wouldn't come out eventually either. 

    And I see George now has a new post about the FM that's worth a read:

    thanks for the heads up, and time to get some built!

    ah yes, a week to get them built, and that's assuming you already did your fleets for this raid? which will also need escalation weapons before finished :(..................DOH

    So does this mean 9 full fleets freshly built each year... 3 Raid formats with 2 fleets each including Flagship... then 3 fm fleets... then escalation weapons and tech for the raid fleets... flags - 60 days.... other raid hulls - 144 days... escalation refits - 60 days...  fm hulls - 180 days ... TOTAL = 444 days if using 12 day for hulls and 20d for flags... if you win Caedes then another month... looks like all fm toks gonna be used for chores and none available for basers and guards... oh well... I just wish they would make it so we actually enjoyed the game and all this wouldnt be an issue...

    I suggest you put all these plans on hold for a complete cycle. Following the coop camp there are many many guys out there who now need to get their Buccs functioning and that means requiring charged armour from the raid(that is if you have had the sense to put it in there). There builds for the Bucc might be ready for the 3rd raid but if not def the 4th. You give them a chance to bridge the gap and then make a decision that will open that gap wider again. Put it on hold !!!!

    Changing the FM 3 times per year is still too much. It really only need to change once. Also for that one change time design a raid that you only need one fleet to complete all of it. That way you have time to build your new fleet for the FM. One other thing is that FM hull itself needs to have a very low build time, in the area of 24 hours for an empty shell.

    shell times are not the problem

    nearly 2 days per armour.....lets call it 7 days for 4 armours that's without weapons, hull, means of movement or any other specials...........................

    seeing the problem here?
