I do not call it an Exploit, I call it ingenuity. A way to get what is needed the best way we can. 

I think it is wrong to change the rules Midstream. That is hipocracy

We have WAR, We have Aggression, Let us do it with Pride and Honor Without disgracing our parents by showing how badly they raised their kids. That's all it is, Poor Parenting and lousy attitude.

    Apparently folks were throwing multiple 1 siege ship fleets into 901s to kil the 1st building for 200k or so points then letting it time out.

    Example.. 10 x 1 ship siege fleet tying up 10 901s for 10 mins for 10 x 200k = 2 mil.

    Well Kixeye, U better reduce the difficulty of the 901's and the other 2 targets they are way too difficult to kill, especially the 901 with all the targets :(

    the other 2 targets aren't easy to kill either, if they don't get the difficulty reduced I am not doing this allegiance anymore.

    Make targets which dish out major damage and you will always get peeps finding ways to limit their damage. Kixeye should learn from this and be more tolerant in future with their damage output.

    Seems that many more agree. I think Kix should return the 901 to its original configuration. Its only fair.

    I agree they should return the event targets back to what they were before they "fixed" them.  all they did was hurt the little guys who may have been lucky to have 1 Dragoon built considering the build time, tech needed and resources needed for them.  Since most of the smaller players who were given fleet or just returned have not had a chance to build anything except for FM fleets.   

    Kix for once give the little guys a chance to be able to compete in raid, otherwise you limit the events yet again.

    It's called a design flaw, not an exploit.  They designed the target that way, and that was their fault for not knowing what their own target would pay for damaging the one building.
    Design flaw that
    1) If they actually played the game and understood the game;it should have been easily detected in testing
    2) if they had the time to test things and were not so rushed all the time [ Well when they dropped the raid cycles from 4 months down to 2 thats less time to test stuff ] its not the players fault that these things happen
    3) If the main targets were not so damaging to players fleets then players wouldn't need to use design flaws to get the points they need.
    1). They actually test it but understanding the game hmm not sure about that, i think the test is about when the designed target can damage our fleet for above 1h rep or more will be better with the max upgraded fleet than the design will get the OK stamp  :D
    2). About the cycle time they will still blame player, player wants 1 hull for each cycle they said ok but the cycle reduced into 2 months cycle and still player must build 2 fleet they just changed the name of 2nd hull i forgot the hull type but its the supressor and the scoundrel  :D
    3). The main target are always 1 give us high damage and the other gives low damage, and what makes this worst is they always use EXPLOIT word behind their fault, its like we're all CRIMINALS  :'(

    Players first ?  they cant even pick a soft words

    I believe what they have done to the 901 is remove the rewards for partially completing it, NOW we have to 100% it or get nada. NOT NICE KIX

    Had a lovely evening having a beer and watching the Netherlands beat Northern Ireland 3-1 while four ships hauled in over a million points every 10 minutes. Was fun while it lasted.  :p

    I didn't get any of that free pts.  So, I'm a little pissed and this raid sucks balls.  At least some people had fun because this game is not fun anymore.  It's like smoking cigarettes, I still want one even though it's a zero gain.  I need a BP patch.  Something tells me Kix is working on one, just for me?
