    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?
    Prize list is in the pinned event briefing thread....

    if pvp is so imbalanced, how did a fleet with 1 posM, 1 impact cr, and 3 msc walk through all my turrets, when i can usually destroy them before they get close? The only thing that then did damage to his fleet was my guard, which never usually sees any action. 
    Either there is no imbalance at all, just bad designs, or it was  a dodgy fleet/player ????

    but that like going to the doctor and saying it hurts when I do this and he going to say don't do that. well everyone I come across that I know for fact had double stacked fire support knew it was wrong to do that so just because it was there. wrong is wrong no matter what is in front of you and cant tell me a lvl 98 to 129 player does not know how this game works cheating is cheating no matter how you want to spin it.

    Something like a guaranteed shard drop from each 85 or something, makes it worthwhile to try grinding for a full Caedes

    2 bad that the new impact cruiser is not being offered.....

    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.
    Yep, there will be a single version for around 10k points this bounty and after that it will be in raid. That's usually how it goes;

    Why would you give hackers a week's notice? They will just undo their cheats before next week's update. Then after the banhammer swings, go right back to their bs.

    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?
    The 100 and 102 can be done either fleet,  as usual builds and driving styles vary from player to player so results may vary.

    Free Caedes for people who already have the fleets to do the raid. Thanks Kixeye, you're really being helpful for those of us without Caedes.
    Agreed people who can that many points dont need Ceades and since you added a target and divided the max points over the 3 T7 targets to a max of 3 milj. points people who win do not need a Ceades but a ban from Kixeye for destroying your game. 

    I still find that people who added a lot of energy in getting a Ceades should be allowed to hit 100+ targets and to make all prizes in locked store limited its a hoax that will lead to more customers abandon your game.

    So do like you do your update but instead of doing raid twice, think twice before you launch this RAID!

    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. 
    I've asked about the build time for the Zyth 2, D5C, and new Cat Mort.  I'll let you know what I find out.

    Wouldn't mind top 5 of each sector either with the same shard rewards except for each sector. Makes Caedes far more accessible for everyone. Though they'll probably nerf Caedes then

    Follow up to this:

    Catastrophic Mortar: 9d 23 hr 13M
    D5C  5d 6h 43m
    Z Shells 2:  4d 1h 13m

    Keep in mind, build time may vary based on officers and R&D level.

    You can only use 1 RA3 special though. Reinforced Reactive Armor is a normal armor that you can place more than once assuming you have enough shards
