    Even though I can't research (or build) the Bastion, I can prep for its markups with this Mobilization. 20-25 M2 boxes and 8-20 M3 will help me.

    Same boat here. Finishing last lab level now that i somehow forgot earlier. So i hope the difficulty wont be so high that you need bastions to do this event well.

    The Altairians are considered aliens to us (The Rebellion). If they do another Mobilization, which is unlikely, they could spawn in BRs. In any case, I can get one my Liberators up to M5 and stock up on Bastion equipment. 

    Am curious about the previous generation of Aliens, will they get shafted to the side and fade into obscurity or will we uncover The Source and finish them off for good? Lore wise, they caused the Armageddon, pay back is in order.

    So did I read this correctly??? You can only get enough bastion pieces for half the hull?

    Yes. If you didn't get the full BP in Contact, you'll have to buy the fragments of it over other events. All eight fragments will equal 3M points, compared to the 2M full BP.

    That's how shiteye with greed get players to pay... I chose not to tango...

    If the BP pieces are not more expensive than the full BP, then there is zero incentive to purchase the full BP. This is offering players an easier (albeit less efficient) path to obtaining the Bastion Cruiser.

    Cyrus is absolutely correct. This strategy, albeit more expensive, allows players to get the ship at their own cadence.

    How many people can actually build the new cruiser without having used any coins? I'm just wondering since it'll be at least a month until I can because of all the new Ship Factory and Ship Lab levels required, which incidentally were never mentioned as requirements until right before T7 release. Also how is this Mobilization any different from Decimations aside from the lack of phases? Or are Decimations also receiving a huge change? Some communication from 1 of our 2 Community Managers sure would be nice.

    Any ideas what the discount will be? I don't know if this is a new bug, but the % amount does not show in iOS.

    Problem is that's too much less efficient. You need to hit 2,5x more 80s to get same amount of points (remember, you've had base attacks during main event - another ~70k for each ~100k from attacking fleets). It's very unlikely that players who wasn't able to get BP in one run in main event will get it even after 3 consecutive lesser events, which will settle them at least one month behind majority of more successful players (assuming that those BP pieces will be offered in each "lesser" event).
    To me it seems more like "let's put a mark on 'allow low level players easier advance to current tech' bullet point of players requests"...

    Would really of like this mobilization be the Axis ships - my fleets top out at the L2 Xeno and it’s stupidly difficult to get the points I needed to get any of the Axis ships let alone the Alts...

    I started one near the end of the last event, fully fitted 9 day build. I also applied 48hrs of Riot Ship Build time tokens. It will be finished soon.

    Just to be clear.  To build the ship Bastion, you need Ship Factory XIII(9 days 3 hours + 900 mil res) and Ship Lab XII.  upgrade Ship Lab to XII may not be a big deal. But Ship Factory XIII is.  To build this, you need Bridge VIII(13 days and 15 hours + 2 billion res). To build Bridge VIII, you need Ship Factory XII(I assume you already done this) and Fleet Bay XIV(13 days 6 hours + 2 billion res).

    assume you done the small upgrades, upgrade to Fleet Bay XIV to Bridge VIII to Ship Factory XIII will take 37 days + about 5 billion res.  Not to mention, you base lvl will be pumped up and you will be a piece of meat to everyone who got a fleet of liberator destroyers + shatter.

    I got the Bastion, but it doesn't look like I can build it for at least 1 months and half. 

    I am curious what lvl you will be after go the upgrades are done. anyone who already have them build, please reply! Thanks!

    If you need AXIS ships and crafting materials, Alien Strike and Crafting Event are for you.

    The factory upgrades give minimal XP, Lab 11->12 gives over 200k though.

    but it also says repeatable, so does that mean you may get the same piece instead of all 4 different pieces for half of the ship???

    @CM_Lee Is this really intended? These Altairian Vanguard are completely different from the ones in Contact. All ships have shields and are resistant to the traditional three damage types.  These weren't applied in the Contact event.

    Thanks Kix for buffing the targets, do you really want people to play this game cause you seem intent on pushing players away or out of the game completely.

    Just did a L80 the way I did it in Contact, took on eight hours! The repairs are supposed to be a quarter of that!!

    Why am I not surprised to see them buffed? But... that's just a brand new one, huh?
