Level 50s sometimes don't drop blueprints

I think level 50s should always drop blueprints. They're so strong.......

    I disagree. Collecting of the earlier blueprints will probably be necessary to take on 50s.

    I don't think they wanted you to get every print the first day...

    How shocking ! All this time I thought that KIXEYE was a charity making games for free ! It's not like their employees need to eat and buy gas!

    Like, i haven't fought enough of them to get an idea what the drop rate is, i hope it's like 50% at least... If it's like 20%, get out of town, i ain't bothered.

    i've successfully hit over 50 vegas both in and out of planet since the update and only managed to get 1 bp piece now maybe i'm unlucky or something but to me 1 in 50 is a lousy rate and would mean i have to do thousands of vegas just to complete one ship, shield or weapon considering the increased power given to the vega fleets through improved weapons and shields it's likely that many like myself will end up drifting away from the game and look for games with fairer game play.

    I'd rather they make us collect more fragments than have a 2% drop rate, at least I can figure out how many more steps i need to make to kill them. But i reckon, i am going to frustrate myself trying killing a dozen lvl 50s with no bps and days of repairs.

    Insanity rules if you think they would make a drop rate of anything like 20-50%!

    It will be more like 2-5% and that is for each time you hit, it won't accumulate each time you do t get a piece it will just reset next time you have to hit one.

    Then we possibly have the mythical streak breaker...

    The earlier blueprints are nearly useless lol - Anything you obtain from a lvl 33 or under is straight up not useful for me.

    I really like this concept. 

    The 'illusion of progress' would be enhanced if there were 30 components for a BP and a 50% drop rate rather than 6 components and a 10% drop rate. 

    It would be slightly more programming for KE (mostly in coming up with plausible names!), but the 'placebo' effect of moving the progress bar faster more often would more than make up for it.


    A side benefit would be that the element of gross luck (good or bad) would be reduced, since a little probability theory would show a much tighter 'bell curve' (narrower and taller) for when players are completing a given BP. The AVERAGE completion effort would not change, but far fewer would complete a BP really early or really late.

    actually i feel Kixeye have screwed up royally ! instead of being a wargame now Vega Conflict has turned into a space farmville with a majority of players forgetting about fighting and hitting bases preferring to hit vegas in a race to get the new technology, with the low low drop rate  only the mega coiners can shortcut and get the tech not that it is any good to them unless they want to become mega bullies attacking fleets unable to defend against the alien tech or inflict serious damage on their overpowered and over shielded ships.

    As a result we will probably see a mass exodus from the game over the next few weeks as players succumb to frustration and realization that they can no longer compete on a level playing field in this game.

    IMO, they shouldn't drop them every hit, but possibly a better drop rate.

    always so much negativity in the forums... the game was getting boring anyway with nothing else to do but hit players bases/fleets and collect cargo. (my opinion) with these blueprints coming out it gives us some more excitement to playing. now there is another reason to hit cargo other than just get res that you will spend to hit other players. there will still be base hitting dont think that just cause it comes out that players will forget all about the other aspects of the game and only focus on that. not saying there wont be those players but not everyone will do that.

    At least now it's Vega Conflict instead of Alliance Invaders Conflict.

    They need to make blueprints available from players who have the tech already.  If you see someone with beam or a new hull you can hit their base for a chance of the BP dropping.

    well its not TOO bad. I only had to spend 40 coins on repairs to kill one 50. although i believe i know a way to kill them with minimal repairs.

    the catch: it will take 3 totally different fleets.

    Remember that blueprint drop rates are not 100% and there is always the chance that you will not get them. As stated early in this thread it is a good idea to try and collect the earlier blueprint fragments before tackling the Elite VEGAs.

    If any of you play Battle Pirates, don't expect to get these Blue Prints right away...It can take you a week or longer just to complete 1 item. I have known some in Battle Pirates who are very active that took them over a month just to complete an item..
