    Just received an update - Leaderboard prizes are going out today. Originally it was to make sure the chest was available but looks like the team got it out on time. :)

    Last raid I wasn't able to use my Dragoons at all, as they couldn't survive the first channel in the targets.  This time I have them done, with flag, all skulled, armored and at U1 (Flag at U2), with Sprints instead of Gales.  If this isn't good enough to gain points in the top targets, I had better see some lower tier targets that allow this hull or this raid will be as pointless as the last, and that will be it for me in this game.
    might as well say goodbye now Blitz if you really expect kixeye to give you a fighting chance without paying a house mortgage to them every month.  There is no way to build an entire fleet properly outfitted to hit the big targets without spending a fortune to do it

    Well if you don't want the next cycle hull/weapon/special, then you may as well quit now, seeing as it will be required at some point down the line (although with the deals kix is putting out, you may just be on to something as long as you are willing to spend a few $$ a cycle, like the $16US TLO for goons that's on right now).

    About the Pieces of Eight Campaign, what type of fleet is to be used against it?
    There is nothing in the update notes, and this is useful information.

    The 2 month raidcycle should go back to 3 months , the idea from using the fleets from the past cycle in lower level targets is great, but they payout alot less , and honestly 2 months to build a complete fleet with all upgrades is not doable , please bring back the 3 months raidcycle 
    i agree 100 percent

    well I just went and started my fm now and my token is already expired and rest are expiring in less then a day



    so things expired before even starting - then I stared it and just checked it because it usually says expired until you start - still gone and others are expired 16 hours after I started

    very very bad kix - so you muck us out of a one day token - to reward us for mucking up last week - good call wtg nice going - said sarcastically


    smarten up and reset the clocks of those that just started

    Someone didnt read warning posted by CM Ghillie about 25 mil give away. As soon as you logged in and got your 25 mil last wednesday, FM timer started even if you didnt hit any targets. That could explain your token expiring.

    Update: Points and tokens will be issued starting at 3PM PDT and players will receive them on login. As such, the FM chest timers will start as well.

    They are not expired, just at capasity. Meaning u need to open up your chests u have so u can collect the chests from the new fm. I always open up the chests before last fm and use a 1 day sbt so the last fm i can collect the 1 day sbt and save the chests and tokens for the new raid cycle hulls to build them with, but that is just me.

    Your on to something, but not what you think ;)

    I havent done a single raid in 6 months, barelly have done others events. All ive done is FM and a bit of Pillage, which is mostly how i get my raid hulls. Cheaper and faster then raid.

    Ive stop bothering to keep up. Ive stop building the latest and greatest for more then 6 months and yet, i can manage to grind to get what i WANT. I build what i WANT, or absolutly need to have, like preats.

    Yes, i been on the verge of quitting for over a year, but one goal as kept me around to do the minimum, getting the last few shard packs for my capitol ship. I need 2 pack for Man O War and 1 pack for Hellstar and Pnem, which is what 800k in raid, quite grindable with even a year old flt.

    After that, who knows, maybe ill log and keep research going and see what kix does, maybe quit, who knows.

    One thing is sure, i wont invest time on hulls that become obsolete in less then 6 months. Especially when they seem to give them for free after 3-4 months. If you havent seen that pattern by now, im soooo sorry for you. Sadly content in this game is devalued faster then a car these days, and once it at 10% of it value (after 2-3 months) they basicly give it away.


    SO keep running after the carrot if you want, ive stopped. Ill play to have fun and do what i WANT when i WANT too. No more huge grinds, no more money (heck still got the 50 coin they gave us a few months ago), and no more encouragement. I dont care if they go bankrupt or keep making 13.5 mil profit a quarter as they have stated, i wont be encouraging this studios (even if im a fellow canadian citizen) until i see my money worth in this game.
    IF that plan works for you, great. Building the latest ships doesnt have to cost you much money, you just need to keep  the SY going all the time. Your style would be vastly boring to  a large part of the player base. But it's true that a persons idea of "fun" can and does vary a lot. If you aren't having fun on the game then yes, you should quit. Why waste time on a game you don't like?
