    I'm glad to see those prize boxes return (even if it's just this once). This will help the low levels get a good boost in progress. 

    Shame there is no event video, though.

    is this event only for hevy coiners or people with lvl 90+ fleets because the targets look as if you just dont give a dam and just are tone deaf to what players are talking about.

    Please do add more targets into this event. they dont have to have boxes on them but more ways to get to the goal is a good thing. i suggest you add more targets.  that deal with the event.

    Looks like a pretty decent event, although I'm a little disappointed that there are no Cavalier Mk boxes beyond Mk2. I understand that not many people are using them, but it'd be nice for the Mothership fleets had a mix of the 3 ship boxes, i.e. Lvl 80 has Bastion Mk4, Lvl 90 has Cavalier Mk5, Lvl 100 has Paragon Mk5 x2, Lvl 110 has Bastion Mk5 x3. Aside from that everything looks good, though I do have a few questions.
    @CM_Lee,
    1. Can you equip the Harmonic Beam Capacitor to the Sovereign Carrier and if so, does it affect the Cyclotron Beam?

    2. Can you have an Overdrive Generator and a Field Generator? (Pretty sure you can't, but just want to check)

    3. How long does the Enguard Overdrive last once there are no longer 3 enemies within the Sovereign's firing arc?

    can you ensure or ask about inquisitor boxes trickling down? as of now allteraian crafting has not done so they have remained in the 100/110 for mk4/mk5s

    -as well as outposts spawning in adequate amounts along with the mother ships that you know everyone will be targeting, please dont bottle neck the spawning.

    last mobilization re-run we saw you can spawn TONS of targets at your discretion,but they were targets no one hits, the blitz ones

    reduce blitz outposts heavily and increase the others? Seems would make players very happy

    -I see the opposite again MK3 inquisitor boxes moved UP to the new fortress, why?

    Why withhold plasma shell? it is what everyone wants, the bases are going to be shooting plasma not alien damage in fact alien damage shields seem a moot point .

    Even the most basic weapon versions (Zyklo 1) are resuable items now? Really nice. Not.

    Can someone explain the Gold and Silver Prize Box?  Do you get all of the ships, weapons and specials in the box? Or do you get 1 of the ships, 1 of weapon and 1 of the specials randomly? or just random 1 item of the list? 

    This isn't clear, since it stats that will contain ...

    Thanks!

    They will contain 1 item from that list each. But with 30 boxes of each it’ll add up

    Even though there will be Day One patches for Doomsday, I wonder if the L80 Mothership target is easy enough that I can continuously do it. Doing the Vanguards is the easiest route, but when you're looking at excess of 6M points for the event, it'll begin to get boring. I already have a full fleet of M4+ Bastions, so they shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    If the damage is the same as the preview server and as far as I know it is. With a fleet of mke bastions and a paladin I was getting around 5 hrs repair time on a mothership 80. It drops to around 2 hrs using a Sovereign carrier.

    Do not underestimate the mothership fleets because of there level, they are still boss targets and even the lower level ones pack a punch.
    The problem with this game is the power curves. Just look at the graphs I made. Said no vega conflict player ever

    I'll take your word on this, so I'll do some Vanguards for the time being and observe others doing the Mothership targets, figuring out a strategy. I know the Sovereign will be really useful.

    I will post a couple of videos tomorrow on here, I just recorded them. No real flying in them just as an example using low end builds to give you an idea of what to expect

    Edit:

    I have set a schedule to publish the videos on my youtube channel at 10am PDT / 6pm BST which should coincide with the release of the event video. I have done 5 videos: 2 level 80 Altarian Mothership fleets and 2 level 110 Altarian Mothership fleets, one with the Sovereign and one with the paladin for each using low mk ships and also a look over a level 100 Altarian Fortress.

    Hope it helps

    Should call the sovereign a dreadnought. Or a harvester.

    So ... 5 hours until the event begins ... where is the video of the event that has been promised?



    I think that kixeye has had enough time to make a video, as always, promises that do not fit, or arrive "conveniently" late

    More importantly why no response to the questions regarding the problems that will  inevitably present themselves once the event starts, that  could be prevented by taking into account player feedback. And the new trickle up theory

    @Cyrus Leung Can the Oligarch ships in the Fortress bypass the Walls or do they follow the same rules?

    so after wathcing cyrus video about the new event .

    something absurd is now clear . those corvette needs to be changed .

    yeah they do no damage , but they are so insanely tanky it takes ages to kill them , and i suppose that if you don't kill them in time , you don't win the battle and don't get all the point.

    that is so stupid...

    Version 1 recordings are from last night before some changes were done today. Version 2 are as close to release as I have tested

    The corvettes will be adjusted before release. The ones in our videos have loads of health. We obviously recommended them be less durable

    Quick question. Why are the Paragon and Inquisitor mk boxes and elite pieces mixed between two high level targets? The fortress 100 gives inqusitor boxes (2 which is nice!) and 50 paragon elite pieces. The Motherships give mk paragon boxes and elite inquisitor tokens? Is it a mistake or just to make us farm more? It seems odd to me. 

    Oh, and what is the build time going to be on that generator? 7 days or longer?

    -could you shed any light on this please,  it seems pretty much a punishment to players to give xeno shells plasma shell when plasma is what we need for this very event.

    Any insight you can share on the thought process behind this? again not a snarky remark, but looking to how they decide things like this, that dont seem to make any sense

    A chance to help players is available, but ignored....

    It is the new trickle-up theory MK3 inquisitors are now in  fortresses instead of regular outposts...

    The answer is simple you don't need the correct shield now because you need to receive a lot of dmg and get days of repair and not be able to complete the event.
    And get the right shield on a later date when you don't need it anymore and need to refit another shield on your ships that won't be done in time unless you use coins.

    If Cyrus is correct, the Sovereign carrier in the Mothership fleet has a Xeno Shell. How many times do I have to say this:

    Xeno damage is ment for PvE, because all PvP fleets have at least 50% resistance at this point. Therefore, PVE TARGETS SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY XENO DAMAGE RESISTANCE.

    What about this is hard to understand? I thought we were part this nonsense after the AXIS traitor fleets, but I guess not.

    Watching TopGear videos they can bypass the walls.
