    Oops. 10 and 100 got flipped. Fixed!

    Does anyone at Kixeye actually play BP?????? We just finished a raid followed by a week with 2 TLCS, the FM heavily overloaded with new content and now instead of a simple vxp we have this load of rubbish....absolute BS
    I mean - this is the exact same VXP weekend you've always had following a Raid and even leaves the valuable targets out for longer - it now just has more options for tokens if you want them. You don't need to engage with the additional part of the activity if you don't want to - but it's there and probably beneficial for ranking up your hulls if you do.

    So, there are the Tokens people have been clamoring for. Looks like just Tokens, Crew, or Bacon Chests. The Bacon Chests the ones that had the older Hull Blueprints for completionists?

    There 10 types of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

    1. Maybe was originally a typo? Or you misread?

    And, we cannot even normally lelvel the Siege Fleets we are building. The Targets are from the last Cycle, not this one. They basically just called this Raid a VXP Weekend. Instead of "January Token Raid". There should be 88 level Siege Targets, for directly leveling Eradicators and Shrikes.

    Kind of stupid that to XP your Raid Fleets you need to use last Cycle Raid Fleets, then buy Tokens for this Raid Cycle's Ships.

    This has to be clarified. So the only Siege targets are involved in the battleground and they pay out VXP equal to WHAT???????????????

    Sorry, the low level VXP-Only Targets that were originally labeled as Skirmish targets had their name corrected to "Raider Fleets". Those are standard.

    If you are looking to rank up your Siege ships, you should attack the Siege targets. Last month's VXP targets were just renamed - the 98=88 and the 58 still equals the 58. However, if you want to just accrue VXP by suiciding ships as has been the approach in the past, nothing has changed about the possibility of that approach.

    "VXP-Only Targets begin spawning at the same time as Battleground begins. The level 100 VXP-Only Target stops spawning at 9:00AM PST on Sunday, when Battlegrounds ends. The remainder of VXP-Only Targets stop spawning on Monday at 9:00AM PST."

    Am i reading this correctly? The 100 VXP target thats normally 36hrs will be 48hrs this time??

    can kixeye explain this? this is almost as bad as the math u use? so if i use a skirmish fleet i only get skirmish points to use on skirmish prizes? meaning on top of another raid grinding for points... the points are hull specific and can only be used for certain hulls?

    or the targets are tuned for specific hulls but can be used for anything?? 

    please clarify...

    It shouldn't be the approach though!! You have made it impossible to rank certain ships with a grind and due to the ever increasing amount of armor points on the rest.. practically impossible.  Targets are tuned to require fully ranked ships why when we are expected to coin them to get 2 raid fleets done every 3 months are we expected to pay to rank them too?

    The best thing you did last year was to reduce the requirement down to 1 fleet and make the cycle 4 months.. That had a positive response from the community, so why did you reverse course.
    Revenue is counted quarterly. Three months is a quarter.

    I should have written "reported" instead of "counted" It's a thing.

    And they can't collate the data from any period... I'm sorry but the raid cycles were historically 4 months so stating they changed it to 3 then back to 4 then back to 3 due to reporting revenue is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Whilst I thank you for your response, I don't think you are qualified to answer for CM Chris.
