Hi kixeye,

I realise after this week update. My zelo fleet no longer able to auto pilot the FM 111 anymore.

  1. My fleet either stuck aiming at the torp tower OR
  2. My zelo fleet of 5 ships, always split into 2 groups. They move seperately. One of the group is 2 ships. The other is 3 ships. The one with 2 ships got killed by the drac uav and the group with 3 ships is aiming the torp tower insider the base.

Why is that so ? Did you guys changed anything that intentionally cause autopilot to fail so that we have to coin and cannot autopilot ?

Thanks

    Why not drive it?
    Or just supervise it?

    Becos it will take me 15 mins to complete a fm 111. If it can autopilot as previous, I can finish 2 fm 112 with my inferno

    Same start point irrespective of angle for entry.

    Group them up kill first carrier and press S.
    Chances are someone has killed the small pin at the start, this causes split.

    Believe it or not, I haven't, just seen it in game and discussed here / TFC a few times.
    From the description, I am certain it's the pin being killed.

    Slightly off topic I guess, but close.   When autoing 111's , how do you avoid the mines, I take all damage from mines not turrets.

    Autopilot does not see mines as an obstacle so will not drive around it

    There is no way to avoid mines on autopilot.

    Even bad drivers hit mines
    To avoid mines must drive and have good captain skills

    The thing is I dont mind my zelo fleet hit the mine. The dmg is negligible. The big problem is the fleet of 5 ships, split itself into 2 groups. A group of 2 and group of 3. The group of 2 will move forward to the drac uav and got killed there. The group of 3 will get stuck aiming the torp tower inside the base.

    I dont know why the sudden change. It was fine 2 or 3 weeks ago.

    My zelo fleet can auto about 8 x fm111 previously. Now, not even 1.

    the small turret platform at the start, noobs kill that all the time because it's free points.

    Even seasoned pirates kill them--usually because they're in catch-up mode.
    I call it an unfinished turret myself. Because it pays out the points of a turret.
    Obviously it's there for poor pirates to steal.. My theory, anyway

    If using the IB's and you DO NOT have substantial splash and went with siege batteries with higher building damage you will stop at that torp in the right corner as next target and no way to get to it. If you go with splash option for high splash that torp tower is killed during platform corner kill and you can auto. I have confirmed this with 2 separate fleets one high splash one high building damage.

    as far as Zelos I don't run them but my best guess is the first unarmed platform is destroyed prior, but please test that theory go watch the battle see where they split

    Everything actually went fine as usual. My zelo fleet just stops at the torp tower inside the drac base. Pin or no pin is the same
    My thought is Kixeye change the torp tower nearer to the building, so players cannot auto

    After more testing around I will agree something was changed I did a few more refits and realized with the IB's its not the splash it is actually the fleet that stops is a kixeye built fleet the one that doesn't stop was a built by player fleet.

    That said are the monos you use kixeye built from an offer? I put in a ticket about it and of course was blown off and given 25 gold the kixeye stanard

    I am a non coiner. Can't log ticket. I spent almost 3 months building and refitting the Zelo fleet.
