    Here's a question.  Why are there breaks in spawning schedule ?  Such as 4;30 to 6:00 and  7:30 to 9:00?   Otherwise the URF's spawn every half hour.  
    What ? Are the URF's  having a coffee break ?   Does the server need to cool off or something ?

    Seriously.  Why ?   No sarcasm.  I really want to know.

    Worst best VXP weekend ever. Skulled my Gut Sky and Gut Phoenix free under 2 hours. Ranking anything other than subs SUCKED!
    My god the URF paid terribly as usual...And the 55's ranked subs free and easily, but try ranking a FKEN JUSTICE???

    Anyone remember those legion assault force vxp targets?How hard would it be for kix to run them alongside the reaver 100s?No new design just an older target that also happens to be assault class.

    I sincerely hope kix reconsiders the shortening of the elite vxp targets.24 hours per month is not adequate enough to rank our ships,especially the pvp side.

    Yeah! Especially since the reaver 55 vxp can only be killed by subs and tides. If they don't bring back the LAFs, I wish they'd at least lower the damage and resistance of the 55's so it could be reasonable killed with other types of fleets. (Like the poor Cannoneers)

    Would it be possible to re-think the way that the vxp bonus targets are spawned?

    I mean, could we not have them as a camp target that we can activate once only for 24hrs at any-point during the month?

    That would give us the ability to pick a time when we are actually around in order to make best use of it?

    With it being Friday night (in the UK) -> Sat night it is rare that I get more than maybe an hour or two in the 24hrs to actually play due to weekend commitments....

    when VXP wasn't a *must* this wasn't an issue, but with the VXP requirements being so high now, and the poor performance of ships without it, it is frustrating I'm not easily able to do much ranking.... (or I don't have tokens to bump to at least 50%)

    I'm sure I'm not the only one in this sort of boat...

    55's are just jail for Skyfires,   you don't even get into range and you get slammed for an hr plus damage from the first ship.   This with charged armor, ranking and all the other stuff.

    You have ALL month to RANK your PvE fleets ... they are called SALVS.  Stop whining.  If you have commitments stop worrying about the **** game.. If you have a job, stop worrying about the **** game.  If mommy grounded you cause you were a whiny little brat, guess what, that's your fault.  The point is...  This game shouldn't be running your entire life.  If you can rank, rank.  If you can't, stop expecting everyone else to change JUST FOR YOU.

    I would like to add another point to this thread. For those that **** about everything in the game that doesn't go their way-for some nearly everything-Kixeye only added these VXP weekends as a favor to players fairly recently in terms of the games life. Too many people are ungrateful crybabies. Every time Kix does the players a favor you have a "percentage" of players who always think they are being cheated. Especially the ones that don't coin. Why the hell do YOU think Kixeye cares about what the non-coiners think? Why is that such a hard concept to understand. You leech off of their game and hard work and time and contribute NOTHING. What right do you have to say anything? Kix could take these away again and leave us to the salvages to rank ships like it used to be for years before. 24 hrs is PLENTY OF TIME-even if you work 12 hrs of it-so? It take a couple of hrs to rank a fleet with 2 Star Salty Dogs. If you dont want to spend coins then you miss what one shot through?

     Only added them as a favour??? So how do we rank conq hulls if they hadn't added VXP wknds? How do we get enough VXP from sals @ 50 points per 71, when they introduced the new ranking system? Kixeye decided to increase the rank system from 1 star @ 25% to skulled @ 75%. Kixeye did this...not the players. When we had a 1 star ranking system everyone hit sals/bases for vxp..wasn't a big deal. Anyone could do it with a bit of effort.... if these targets were geared towards all of the hulls we have been inundated with since the start of the year, pretty sure less folks would be  complaining. Kixeye also stated in the WIP, before it was canned, they would be looking at ways to improve the VXP system...still hasn't happened. As for free players....... see how far the game goes without them. I can think of a ton of well known free players on these forums who might not agree with you...........

    I hit an unidentified 55 for VXP with 1 Punisher, 1 Hellwraith, and two Tiger Sharks. When they returned to my base I had only received 62 veteran experience points. Far less than in identical previous attacks, so I wrote to customer support (including a screenshot of the 62 vxp awarded) to inquire, and below is the response. I have read the terms of service agreement and can find no reference to a dollar amount associated with customer support.

    Why was my VXP return so low. MUCH lower than every other time doing exactly the same thing. Only 62 VXP?? That's ridiculously low. At this rate the repair time isn't anywhere near worth the return.

    Hi Pat,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It does not appear the account you're discussing qualifies for Battle Pirates support as it has not spent $50 in the game. You may want to check out our Battle Pirates Help Center or forums for updates on any ongoing issues.

    If this is in regards to a purchasing issue on Facebook, you can find Facebook's purchasing support here.

    Thank you,

    You could rank them pretty well on 100s if you got rid of the drones first.

    I thought the small unidentified raiders were supposed to spawn until 9pm PST? I've not seen any since 10am this morning. ...and want to also mention the fact that they are not spawning every 30 mins like they should be. A spawn schedule might come in handy? I've wasted two salty crews sitting around waiting for them to spawn.

    For VXP, it's based on the ships armor pool for the amount of damage you must do to a target in order to get points. That is something that is not explained in Rampages post. Although informative it doesn't give people the full information. In order to get the most out of your VXP Weekend this is what you need to do. Yes it actually requires looking at your ship.
    Ships Armor: For instance my Gutspill Phoenix has 12,000 Armor Points.
    Ship Weapons: Deal 91,000 per volley

    Ultimately I only need 1 volley of weapons to get my maximum VXP in a target. Once I launch a volley of weapons unless I plan on dieing I need to retreat out of the target and go back in for another volley. You gain up to 1 VXP point per 10% of your ships armor as Damage. So if you do 100% of your ships armor as damage you get 10 VXP Points. Ultimately per maximum amount with a double salty and x8 modifer I get about 3500 VXP a trip.

    Remember you must deal or take 10% of the ships armor as damage to gain VXP.

    T6 Conq Hulls: They must deal 120,000 damage to earn the full bonus for instance.
    Gutspill Skyfire: Must deal 140,000 damage to earn the full bonus

    Edit: If you've added additional armor it takes that much more to gain a point. It's why back in the day ranking a ship with out armor was the best way

    And now kix removes the retreat button lol

    in case you came here first lol instead of the post for the actual vxp  weekend, i'll save ya a trip, i'm seeing thousands of  poeple saying **** kix, they are really dicking the dog this time, trying to wring every penny out of you that they can, kix a word to the wise, your idiocy actually did get almost a whole sector talking last nite, an for the most, even the coiners are considering just saying, screw this an are going to sit out the upcoming raid cycle, you've outdone yourself in greed and stupidity,  the sub raid didnt work last time, and you were forced to cancel it, from the talk i'm hearing  its going to be the same, wether you cancel it or not will be up to you, but you can't make any money, from raids that nobody is going, also this new daily lolol, nobody is going to do that either, your have so very few people left that are what you would could call, lite coiners, i'm assuming your goal is to drive every last one out of your game
