Why is it now, that a level 117 can attack me, level 88, but I can not attack a level 69 or lower. I got my **** handed to me at level 50 but EVERYONE higher than I but now... No can do. Not fair.... These changes have to go back. If I cant attack someone that's 25 levels lower than I than no one 25 levels higher than I, should be able to attack me.

    That change was a temporary band-aid while they coded the refactor. The Great Refactor will fix that, so they told us. Guess we find out next week.

    The focus of the refactor is balancing T7 tech out, not who can hit who. Though that is still something that they want to address, it just won't be part of the refactor.

    The free for all PvP level was raised from level 50 to level 80 a month or so ago as a temporary band aid for PvP. At some point the intention is to add a more dynamic way to determine base level and who can hit who with what fleets.

    Still no fixing the issues to attacking other players? Come on guy, pull your heads out and get this right. Seriously thinking about moving on to something else. Too many other fixes need addressing as well. Weapons/components don't come up when trying to refit defender/conq hulls. weight limits aren't right, you guys nerfed the Apollos so now cant do mega mayhem anymore with them. I paid good MONEY for them now they r useless.

    With high level players hitting lower players it makes it harder for them it stops there shipyard and now takes a lot of res from them. After being hit over and over the players stop playing I really hate to see any players leave game. Players like Price_is_wrong and a lot of the others that have left game. We the players have spent a lot of money to play this game and really have nothing to show for it.

      I agree with you 100% . No way should a level 120 or higher be allowed to hit a level 80 . That is just wrong . Kixeye you need to install the old 10 levels up or 10 levels down rule . When the Interceptors first came out and lower level players were using them as base defenders , the big coiners were getting their base hitters sunk . The big coiners whined and cried to Kixeye about it and Kixeye responded really fast and nerfed the Interceptors to where they are useless now . Kixeye , if you cater to the big coiners really fast , then you need to cater to the low level coiners just as fast . You need to level out the playing field .

    We have tiers and levels.  It is simple.  Calculate the 'tier' of a base, ships above that tier won't be allowed in, but if a lvl 200 player wants to hit a 60, they will need to use the lower tier ships to match the base.  This will also result in more coin for Kix because players that want to do this will have to maintain fleets of lower tier Conq ships as well as the bigger ones.
    Me: Here is how I clear the fleets out of the 500 with Silverfish
    Worz: Um... You're hiding behind a rock.
    Me: I'd hide behind a preschool if I thought it would help

    How about a self destruct feature set in outpost menu where when them players 50 lvl's higher hit and ya never even heard of the ships u got attacked with say make it 50 - 50 odds of going off and the base goes nuke and you still getta bub and 100% damage but the attacking fleet goes home sunk ( 100% repair time - 0 ship health) no matter what ships they used. that way they can't just run around and flatten bases untill they get bored.

    Play more often and get the tech you need to keep others out of your base . Kix has given you the tools to better your base but you got play and keep up that's why you need to find a active alliance that helps ! key word that helps but only you can log in and do the chores you need to better your out come in this game ! I have hit some mid 80 bases that was tuff so i know it can be done again you and only you can login and play your base to get it up to date and a good alliance will help you  get  there ! You got play every day to stay up on this game the FM and TLC can help you focus on that part of game first .

    To someone 25 levels lower than a Level 88, the L88 would be 47% higher;   but someone 25 levels above an L88 is only 28% higher. 

    47% is considerably different than 28%.
