    Lots of good items added to the FM. Looking foward to cranking on it.  When does the FM start though? Tomorrow, Wednesday?  Popup when I logged in implied it was good to go tonight....

    when can we expect something to be released so we will have a chance at defending our bases again?

    Bases are defendable with a correct setup and if you have all the T7 turrets.

    So changing the cost of charged armour as well...thought this was supposed to allow players to catch up...yet you move things further away...

    Charged Zynthonite Armor C1-X

    150000

    Charged Zynthonite Armor C1-M

    150000


    ooo that's a dirty move, missed that in the list. I guess they figure too many players can do FM now... I did think it was odd that the Apollo was up there with the IB and Monolith in terms of cost despite being a much older hull

    The only turret that has all 8 out is the Pent turrets and MSCs can walk right past them now... before i had a chance at stopping them with the 6 Ballistic turrets but not anymore until they release the Jav2 turrets... so yes it swung from base defense to base attacking , just need to use the MSC with MC plates.

    the turret "adjustment" seem to have taken effect. some are wondering might be able to do something once jav2s are out but dont worry mc3 plate is already showing in sy so you wont be stopping anything lol might do a funny base with all buildings in 1 cluster. gimme a quick bub n leave me the *beep* alone for 36hours :)

    So, quite apart from the fact that PVP balance has just been shot in the head and thrown into a dumpster, I notice that we have a new, (totally useless due to the massive resistance drop vs researchable components)  siege defence special... that adds SHIP deflection? (Also, what is the point of the new limited flak?)

    Back to gentlemens rules - leave the SY and dock in a standard location and stop even trying to defend, like when crusaders/templars came out and there was nothing that could scratch them

    Kixeye yet again proving complete incompetence by breaking base defense completely 
    the problem with what happens if you put out more kit or add more content based on the effect that is happening, then change the source code so the effect no longer occurs, everything you put out since is unbalanced. same as all the targets that were "tuned" based on the CMs working as they were ... now they don't.

    if you chose when you get hit witch is quite a easy thing to do just mess with the right player then most bases are defend able i have 3 fire spitting slomo rocket sporting guardslaughts that melt msc/onslaught like a dream only thing really hurts them are the new cruisers if built right but i even kicked 1 or 2 of those out ... point is a offline base is a dead base for the most part point is even a farm can be defended with the right guard if you chose when to get hit 
    OK.... Who got the weed ?
