Captains,

With the introduction of Greta’s Inferno Dragon in the July Event, “Supremacy”, the team wanted to share with you the plan for changes to FM targets over the next three months.  

Two new high-level targets are being introduced next week. They are the 120 and the 121. These targets are going to have the highest points payouts of any FM targets at 600k each. These targets will also drop shards for the Cheetah Scattergun  and the Predator Missile. These targets are going to be restricted to ships of tier 6 and above. These targets do have the Draconian Anti-Charged Armor Tech,  you will want Zynthonite Armor D5-XM for the best protection. The recommended fleet for these targets is a fleet of Inferno Dragons with Greta’s Inferno Dragon (flagship) at the lead.

The new 105 will be a high-level Blitz Target for the FM.  This target will not be as challenging as the 120 & 121, but it’s recommended that you you bring at least a fleet of five Inferno Dragons to tackle this target.

We will not be removing any targets in July.  The 117 target will be removed starting in the August FM,  and the 112 will be removed starting in the September FM. We will also be adding in a new target in August. It will be another target for the Inferno Dragon. Not as difficult as the 120 or 121.

The team wanted to share this information with you ahead of time. We wanted to make sure that anyone who has not built their Inferno Dragon Fleets will have an opportunity to build their Inferno Dragon fleets before the targets change.

Greta’s Inferno Dragon will be available in the ladder for July Event starting July 12th.  The regular Inferno Dragon will be available in the open store in the July Event. Starting with the July FM update the regular Inferno Dragon, along with its associated components,  will be available in the FM as well.


“X” indicates the target will be in the FM. If there is no “X” then the target will not be in the FM.

    Removing the 112s already????? Go ahead and remove the 117s. From what I've seen, peeps prefer multiple 112s over a single 117.

    The 112s are being removed in September,  the 117s in August.  We wanted to give plenty of time to update/build your Inferno Dragon Fleets + Greta's Inferno Dragon.

    Will the new targets have charge armor depletion like the raid top targets?

    These targets do have the Draconian Anti-Charged Armor Tech,  you will want Zynthonite Armor D5-XM for the best protection. I have the article above to reflect this.

    I did notice the September date. I'm hoping kix keeps the Dragon build tokens flowing. Appreciate kix providing guidance on the build.

    I'm just more concerned of the armor refits. Many players already have charged armors which took 1.5 days each. Now the new armor which also takes 1.5 days each.

    At least we get to build the greta dragon right the first time.

    It could be a lot worse. Only fairly minor refits to my regular dragons and with new targets coming out dragon is still the top fleet. No building and ranking an entire fleet again. Now maybe I'll finish armoring the four I've got and add the flag. That way hopefully I won't have to keep pinching the fm. THE BIG MISTAKE WOULD BE TO MAKE ME CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER FLAG THIS RAID.
