    Wait... Conclude the axis season? Is axis getting another ship or is it a new faction hull? Thats a little confusing

    Seems they are giving us time to prepare next season. I think they will just release all of 'already released things' once again.

    Seeing how I have almost all of the AXIS tech, this wouldn't be much of an issue with me. But, I am glad to see the new calendar scheme to go into effect.

    So in a "cruiser supply run" will there be a "chance" of a cruiser pattern ranging from genesis to guardian or will they be faction specific the higher the fleet level goes up?

    go forth and take a walrus to the ****

    They are just renaming the supply runs so that it is identifiable. The MK drops will remain the same.

    i would assume that the current system, where the higher level fleets give you higher tiered prize boxes

    FLEET   TIER       TIER
    LEVEL   DROP     NAME
    15          1         REBEL
    25          1         REBEL
    33          2         REBEL
    40          3         VEGA
    53          4         VSEC
    60          5          ISC
    65          6          DC
    Speculating from here down
    70         6.5      XENO
    75         6.5      AXIS

    No, the Paladin is the AXIS Carrier, they thought that an XENO Carrier would be too overpowering

    Originally the Paladin was supposed to be XENO but they changed it at the last minute

    Rebels, we will be taking downtime tonight (Wednesday, December 6th). The following player-facing changes are being implemented:

    • While December’s monthly event will be a RECKONING, January is the month of DEFIANCE. The January event will conclude the AXIS Season and be a refresher of all the content that has released in the latter half of 2017, and all support for this event is going into the game now.

    • So does this mean that some of the OLD SCHOOL fleets might make a comeback and/or will the fleet difficulty be changed from any of the events
    • Alliance War is upon us! On December 14th, battle other Rebels in the Unstable Sector to claim Mining Outposts and earn valuable Solar Shards. Unlock higher tiers of the event store, and unlock powerful prizes with Intel earned through PvP. More details released next week.

    • I assume that SOLAR SHARDS is the NEW crafting material for TIER 7, just like the Alien Artifacts was for XENO/AXIS
    • VEGA Conflict is getting in the holiday spirit - a new app icon and splash screen will be visible upon loading the game, and we will be running 12 Days of Login Gifts to celebrate the spirit of the season. More details to come closer to the starting date.

    • Great idea, hopefully they will be super special and actually usable (NOT short term/expirary items)
    • Sometime in December, we will be enabling a NEWS icon on the HUD. Clicking this icon will take you to the VEGA Conflict News Feed, where important announcements and event briefings will go up regularly.

    • with the fact of the ever changing loot boxes from event to event... hope the new system will be able to handle the load
    • Does this mean that we will no longer be getting forum notes for events
    • We’ve added Xeno and AXIS targets to Supply Runs. We’ve also re-named existing Supply Runs to be hull-specific (i.e. Cruiser Supply Run, Destroyer Supply Run, Battleship Supply Run, etc). The new Supply Runs will begin December 18th.

    • any idea what the fleet levels will be - speculating on level 70 = XENO & 75 = AXIS
    • Support for New Resource Supply Runs for Helium-3, Mineral Ore, and Antimatter, which all begin December 18th.

    • FIX: Fleet Bay Upgrade now shows correct gold cost in Build Queue

    • General Bug Fixes and Visual Improvements.

    • CM NOTE: When we move to our Weekly Schedule, Non-Feature Events will no longer have a banner! To view an activity store and your current point totals, visit the in-game calendar, which can be found by clicking the icon in the top right corner of your base view.

    • NO MORE BANNER SPAM...... praise the lord for this part of the update

    @CM Chris  would love to hear some/any answers to these questions/speculations

    a breather before the new season would surely be very appreciated

    I only have one suggestion, it would be pretty good if the time token did not expire, this would mitigate the claims of those who say they can not use them because they already have what they build, being more useful especially for new players like me. we do not have any ships yet to use them.

    Well i noticed today that the "Specialist Run" only does the usual harrier through Demon Corp frigates no specialist drops at all or boxes for it. So will pretty much be the same stuff we've been having with low tech through DC stuff.
