    I like the idea that you'll be smacking down player bases.

    Will banned players be struck from the map?

    Prize list for the raid looks pretty good to be honest. I appreciate the lowered cost for tokens this raid.

    New turret doesn't do enough explosive damage at all, I'm calculating 109k maxed, with turret defense included. If anyone wants to check my math... Edit: 218k if crit

    But comparing it to last raid, it is now 5 mil per target (if you do both) compared to 4 mil per target last raid.

    Question on the T8 section of the raid. Are the 100 and 102 tuned for a scattergun/missile fleet respectively? Or can both be done by either fleet alone?

    i'm very concerned at the 2 top tier targets!!!
    You promised we would not need 2 fleets any more. i refitted my scatter to missile, despite wanting the scatter fleet, as one fleet was meant to be good enough going forward.
    Is it just 2 different targets doable by either, but with 2 different shards, or is it trully  a different target for each type of Manticore???? If so, rethink fast, cos that stops many many players getting essential armours and bonuses!

    kixeye states they want to help returning players and other catchup in tech but i only see 1 tier7 turret in this raid prize list....i think they are missing out on some coining if other tier 7 turrets were offered in limited store with the howie6...they are a business to make money....and more is better and before next bounty would be great for alot of players who want to spend...just saying my 2 cents...i know i would

    BAN HAMMER   coming  and  its  about time   lol   this  shud be interesting   

    Based on the timelines he mentioned, it sounded like those players have been given a chance to go in and fix their bases before they start the review. 

    Which sux. If players have been cheating on their bases they should be banned. 

    EXCEPT -- if players built improper bases because the layout editor is crappy and buggy, that's not really the player's fault. If the layout editor allowed them to do it, that is the game's fault, not the player.\

    What needs to be done is for the revised, fixed, improved layout editor to be released and the players informed of that. (players INFORMED!!! -- that whole communication issue, remember?)

    Then ask all of us to re-validate our bases using the new editor -- give us an incentive to do so.

    After everyone's had a chance to re-validate their base layout, THEN go and ban like a madman. 

    But given the bugs in the layout designer, I worry that a lot of players could get banned due to no direct fault of their own.

    Cat mort2 is a t7 explosive turret so there are two t7 turret types in prize list.

    It was only first offered in last month's Bounty.  Typically they give it a month or two before offering the top Bounty hulls in the raid.

    Fortunately for my base I have all 4 howie 6 - unfortunately I was short on points (or shortsighted) and have only 1 blunderbus2. This raid does not offer blunderbus2. Since my tier 7 ballistic turrets will soon become less effective, it is imperative I get a 6th level 7 ballistic turret - could you please add blunderbus2 to the raid prizes. Thank you for your consideration.

    Where is the prize list should it not be up today as well know it should be floating around here somewhere.

    The "Leader Boards" is a good idea has been done in the past however, you are not looking at how many
    bases can be done or points be obtained by the community as a whole. The thing that could make it more
    fun would having "Target Goals" instead of waiting 24 hours why not release the items at the "Markers" on
    the RAID. In the past we have had issues with receiving "Leader Board" prizes how will this RAID be different
    from the others?

    Is it possible to get the build/equip times of the new items being released? 

    Once the update is finished the ships/specials/weapons will be in the yard to play with, but the new cat mortar can't be played with until its owned - either way, that information would be handy if it was shared in the prize list. 
    2 Months ago it was just a finger, then it was two. Last month it was the fist, and last week to the elbow....
