WOW i was really looking forward to having a good base unit this time that could sneak up on a enemies toons. But atlast I got kicked in the balls for this unit SUCKS THAT BAD. It is a HUGE WASTE of time to build and to LEVEL> Find something else to take up your time in the game. KIXEYE dropped the ball again on a good defense unit. They could have made this one great but they have no sense of the game and just wanted to take ppls money. Getting harder and harder to give kixeye credit on things these days.

    The fact i had had over 20 ppl attack my base in series with it in defense with tons of different units. It would not stand up to any of them. It dies to quick and will not cause near the damage it supposed to. As for proof check it out yourself with your go go bar or with players like i did. Trust me its not worth the time of effort or coin to have this unit. Unless they move the stats up its just another EPIC FAILURE like the last base unit.

    In my testing it looks just fine I don't understand  what makes it useless under no condition should you expect a god tier unit that will make everyone unflatable its a unit with a stealth generator damage boost and speed boost and for defense it stops phalanx and other spam and in the description says combined with the judge  its god tier now I dont even use the judge and its still not that bad this was not going to be a unit that would kill off a siege squadron Romero and Darkstorm in the entirety  of a battle especially without support which is why I dont understand why people coined this thing then complained about it 

    TLDR: Unit is working just fine for me and everything I use it for

    Only think i can see is that you are not using it in real time attacks and have not seen that it will die under support of other units as though there was nothing there to protect it. The first two days it was useable i had it maxed and it was ok. Then as of sunday it went to a PAPER UNIT. They changed the unit cause ppl ere crying about PVP being killed off cause of it. You can promote for kixeye all you want but those of us that use bases and actually fight alot know the real deal. I have a feeling you do not!

    Yeah same coined it leveled it up base tested with gogo looked good! Then base tested with real toons with friend absolute garbage, repeated tests 4 times 4 times with support of other defense toons failed. I'm actually thinking of taking it out like the useless slow judge and just use warlust toons!

    It was a bugged unit.
    It wasn't working as intended. 
    Rather than doing its dps split between 16 targets even when there wasn't 16 targets, it was broken
    So attacking it with 1 unit meant that unit would get hit for its FULL dps, that is meant to mean its DPS spread over 16.
    So basically 1 unit would get hit 16 times. Instead of 1 time.
    So it was fixed, i don't see the issue.

    Example, it WAS doing 2.8 million dps per laser bolt when only 1 target was in range. 
    it SHOULD of been doing 2.8/16  = 17k dps per blast.

    At least im pretty sure that was the issue anyway.

    The 2.8M DPS is the unit's max DPS. That is a quark with the DPS system because the Kraken has 16 "guns", but it will only be able to use one gun to target a single enemy.

    who ever said this was a useless unit is smoking crack. this unit WILL murder anything less than a unique. siege squad is useless now and so is gunship zerg. no it wont single handedly kill romero or the new unique tanks. ur base should be able to do that...its the fact u cant run ANYTHING else aginst the base now is what makes it so hard for people to crack.

    They dropped the ball making it a unit and not a defensive turret.... same with judge. It's a scam. They could of easily made both units turrets. Now players will be forced to coin build and upgrades or pick and choose between Kracken or Nova.

    Kraken is a unit that works better in events than PvP

    Well honestly coin them both unless you don't coin. If you don't coin then I would stick with Nova because it has far more potential to earn bigger and better stuff. Can't compete in events and such with a unit strictly for defense. Defense doesn't earn you much overall and Kracken at this time doesn't have potential to become Omega.
