I just watched a fleet of the new Alt destroyers eviscerate a Lvl 80 base barely taking damage.. it was over < 2 min.  The fleet was escorted by a Tyrant fleet that could kite with impunity, even outranging Bastion's with their extra-range bonus triggered.

This is basic balance stuff (well, ignoring balance) now is a core part of a revenue generating stream - pay to be King of Space for a few weeks.  Now we see it with destroyers that overpower anything new that's been put in bases over the past couple of months.

    People are using an entire fleet of destroyers? Why not just use 2 Paragon's and a Bastion? :P

    Well, it's been more than a year since the last real defense upgrade. We currently have hangar modules to upgrade, so i think the next bunch of base stuff will be combat modules and probably something else during summer when the T7.5 season starts.

    At this point they might as well give us walls that shoot void eclipse and deploy swarms of harvesters

    Actually, CM Chris have said multiple times on these forums that they consider it a mobile game first. Thats also the driving point of some of their decisions, like balancing towards people hitting 1 tough target for lots of points then repairing for a very long time instead of spending a lot of time at their device farming smaller fleets like it were before Xeno season.

    Yes, but that doesn't mean balance becomes a joke...  and with the 10x payout for a big base hit, it does really hurt the opposing player, more than just pride.  I guess since most 70+ bases have already done their big "spends" on things like the FB, perhaps resources are fairly useless in the end stages as well..

    Agree. And if you look at a lot of the changes (brawling instead of kiting, speed normalization etc) it is to make it more mobile friendly.

    As I see it, mobile is just a way to do mundane housekeeping when you're away from your computer.

    Pierce resistors will be an essential upgrade for bases to survive inquisitor attacks.
