    now they saying chams will be able to use them with uavs for the next target expeditions (dont care about expeditions its nonsense) , so they know we are doing chams for raid with balistic , so now we need to build another fleet of chams with uavs to do expeditions , how many shipyards do you think we have ???? some of us are making just first raid fleet , then need to make second raid fleet , then second chams fleet , then another new fm fleet , what are you thinking , make the expeditions targets for balistic chams and stop this nonsense 
    I fail to see any place where it says you have to build the Chameleon or that you have to use that particular expedition. 


    Like I said, there isn't a place where it says you have to use the Chameleon OR the Generalist expeditions.

    Noticed a few are getting confused about HLNC. most probably cause how its worded. Its still the same as last month(locked out of tier 8 but can be used in 80s)..any generalist under tier 7(ie any other generalist except for chameleon) is locked out of 80s.

    So do you (Kixeye) consider the Inferno Dragon the skill hull (like monos) or auto hull (like icebreakers)??

    I think those designations went out the window for the FM when it was moved into its own rotation.

    You were whining about having to build a UAV Chameleon fleet.  The only time you would need to do that is if you use the new Generalist expeditions, which you don't have to do, so stop whining about Kix making you do stuff.

    It's only an issue if you plan on hitting the top target in the FM, which is what this hull is designed for.  The 115s on down will still be there to hit as usual.  If you can't get the points for the hull, your FM won't suffer.

    not whining but its better to instead of trying to make us build more fleets and play less , to change more important things in this game to make it fun again and affordable for all , no , wasting time on things that doesnt work , not even fixing the ones broken , instead of wasting time with nonsense , start bringing some sense to game and more fun

    so where is the big base hitter for the rest of us who was unable  to get  the onsloth in the last bounty wiht this in mind and if this is the way it will be can only get a good base hull in bounty tellme now i wont waste any more time on this game and you idiots

    I agree I am at 0 coins right now not adding any unless that gets added. I could have got it in bounty I had 31K after day and half and stopped as I did not know about this new armor. Only 1 deflection I deemed it a dud and stoped at  31K got mort the spec and King skin.

    If they add that I will coin up all 3 of them on first day of the raid Plus prob get new weekly hull (I still dont think it belongs hidden in a raid as top prize) And will most likely have fleet of it done for next weeks weekly. That is just how I play get the stuff done and be out using it.  

    Dont add it I will be at 0 coins all weekend.   Ship yards both been empty since last bounty got nothing to build. 
    Wow, you both are a little thick..... Bounty prizes (not counting the Hope) get released in raid 6 weeks after they premier in bounty, if you didn't get it 2 weeks ago, you can get it in 2-4 weeks from now, and stop crying about it

    Not crying just telling them they want my $400 + a month in gold they need to add that otherwise my spending right now is 0.  I have every ship there is built shipyards empty and has been for over a month maybe 2 months.  I have means to build Hydra fleet right now not going to. I could pump out a new weekly hull fleet on first day of raid. Not going to. If they want bit of coin and add the hitter sure I will coin it up then coin up the new weekly fleet.  You see I go all in and do it all at one time or I jut go all out and do nothing.

    Honestly I dont care if they do or not. Simply telling them "Hey you want $500.00 this weekend?  Add Onslaught to raid.  If your "good" and dont need the extra $500.00 No problem thats all I am in the market to buy right now.

    I have no idea what the build out on the new Dragon is going to be,   if I did I'd do a build to see what the build time is going to be.   I know the base shell is like 3 days.  I think when somebody does a fleet build on Huggy's that the thread is going to go nuts.

    Thanks
    Isn't there some UAV stuff in the FM?

    maybe do better in bounty and get the hull there..

    most T7 winners ( myself included )  would be pissed with the effort we had to put in to get the hull over the weekend, and a few weeks later its in the raid again..   My guess is they remember the pissed off players when they did it with the hope and arent going to do it again.

    that point lowering feature for high lvl players on low tier targets is a great idea.
    i love it.
    hopefully it will prevent the usuall suspects top dogs from mass farming 40s and preventing me from getting any with their superior map speed.

    try a build out yourself in ship planner,as hull is there..but your looking at roughly a 17day build per 1 with charged armour on it

    Will the new FM hull be able to be used in the current FM targets? Or will it be locked out of them?
    Assuming that I got REALLY lucky, & managed to pick it up along with the rest of it's associated tech, I could leapfrog producing the general "go-to" Zelos/Monolith fleet for the FM (all I have atm is 2 Punishers & an IB)

    Could we get an actual clarification on this line please? It's put in every month, but we haven't had a clear definitive explanation in some time:

    "Hitting targets that are below your recommended level will result in fewer points. This does not affect the completion bonus for a finishing a set."
    for example if youre a lvl 90 player and hit the 60 targets you get less points for each target but it does not effect the bonus points for completion of the set

    why were there no improvements to the new executioners range and projectile speed like how the new cata mord had upped the range and projectile speed compared to their old version? the executioner doesn't have the range to hit anything reliably in today's bases 146 range was fine back in the day but nowadays our bases are much much larger and our long range turrets need more range i vote they bring it up to 190 range and 210 projectile speed which will bring both its range and projectile speed up to snuff compared to today's requirements, or better yet since its a limited turret it should be based on the deadeye executioner instead with 3 projectiles and 199 base range (244 if increased to today's needs)

    the new special should help a lot with the speed  + 50%..  but ya I am with you that I was hoping for a bit longer range.
