    I also got argoed on way home by another fleet so ya the calculations are total loss of 3 fleets around 24-48hrs repair bill I'm going to go play something else instead of this event and let it pass while fleets repair.

    all four fleets traveling with my jav got aggroed and I couldn't keep pulling them all back. got close to two days repair which effectively takes me out of the event. Thank you kix, i'm spending my money elsewhere this weekend.

    Trust me buddy I'm on the same page and that is exactly what happened to me except is b*******. Kixeye should have never ever ever did what they did to the players and this just proves that desperation stinks when they have to go get this low and low ball is players trying to find something else to play for a while.

    I was hitting Harvesters at first was on second one, when same thing happen to me so. I let the other 2 fleets go not by choice, and consitrated on the Argo that nailed my top Fleet Of best ships still took me almost 5 minutes in battle, by the time I piloted my Main fleet I had lost 1 of my other 2 fleets both to Argo one survived that Harvester 80 the other survived the level 90 the 3rd was also nailed by Deceiver 90 and lost it's own battle so that is 3 fleets 1st fleet 19hrs All Axis all exophase equipped Axis Ships that I controlled lost 2 of 6 ships, Second was Axis Xeno mixed one that was hitting level 80 Harvester took 18hrs on full auto and finnally 3rd was 14hrs so that put me down for just over 2days lol I'm also out for remainder on event as well thanks to Devs at kixeye.

    While I agree that the aggro is overkill, setting up yourself like that is your own fault.

    Maybe, if you have a weekly/fortnightly/monthly report that you guys send to Kixeye/CM CHRIS, maybe you could point out to them how much the player base really hate the fact that 80% of the fleets flying about have some sort of aggro on them

    So you took four of your event fleets, at once, on your jav and they are all dead ? Why would anyone even do that ? That taxi does not need four fleets to protect it. my jav is low level. I protect it with a low enough fleet such that there is no aggro. Even if it dies, its no loss to me. It's a freakin taxi !! Some funny choices you make and wonder why you got killed and blame kix. SMH

    In hindsight, had I known the aggro was overkill, I would not have brought my convoy out like that, but the need for mineral ore is real and I needed additional fleets to collect resources. A harvester 100 gives up quite a bit of res. Could have let all that res go to waste, but how else can one upgrade to bridge VIII with a billion ore?

    Agree, I was traveling to collect res after each kill In my sector Ring. Stinks of Desperation it does. If kixeye would a at least posted a message in Briefing about Them turning Argo up all the way. We would a never got caught up, and I was paying attention to surroundings.  I did notice Kixeye Turned up the Argo on the harvesters and the Buffed them even more today not a supprise (As i watched a few people try them again) there someone needs to pass info and put tickets into kixeye about these issues. We as Players Deserved Compensations for Lack of communication Between Players=Company. I myself will not tollerate such BS behavor from a company nether, I will continuse to put this app on back burner as the sectors are now DEAd due to everyone that tried event got Argoed in my sector so tell me again how this event was worth out times.

    I can attack lvl 100 ancient harvesters with a lvl 89 fleet consisting of a mk 3 paladin, 3 guardians mk 3, and 2 Enforcers mk 3 and i only take 12 hours of repair, not that bad for the point payout, you guys just need to work on getting better fleets and weapon combos. And the only reason I have this fleet is because of intense farming.

    Agreed. And on top of that the sheer number of aggressive fleets out there is quite substantial at any given time. It's actually quite rare now that I feel safe (from AI fleets) to jump my javelin into the space between solar systems. Most of the time I park it near the edge of one.

    Im not gonna even bother with thsi event.

    When someone gets on here and says I took 12 hours of rep and it's ok it leaves me in shock. Yes we been dealing with longer and longer reps this last couple years but it's getting absolutely absurd when we see 12 hrs as ok. Lol. Game needs reworked badly. Or shut down just so kixeye quits toying with their players anymore. Can you. To this event? Yes. Do I have the fleets? Yes. The ability aka skill to strategically kill the event targets? Absolutely..... What am I playing this weekend? Not vega.

    Yup agree completely, after testing my Second level 86 mixed Fleet. It was the Argo that didn't allow me to fully test my Favorite Fleet this time around Accept on a fleets that I knew it would barely survive but decided to Argo me instead lmao. I don't see fairness in Bad Business Practices near lol. I'm done as well. I tested Harvesters 70-80 solo targets with current fleet levels 86 the repairs on those were a bit high but doable but Argo is what killed the buzz for me and my stash I had saved up over time.

    took an hour and 45 minutes from a Ancient Harvester 70, and that was with 5 hours left on the timer for the event, roughly translates to 10% Total Fleet Health, my fleet is also All Xeno and AXIS, with a Mark 1 Paladin, 2 Mark 3 Punishers and 2 Mark 3 Guardians, My Guardians are fitted with Non Resistant Tungsten 2s with Exophase 2 x 2, XenO pulse x 3 and a Xeno seeker 2, my Punishers are Equiped with Diffuser 3 x 2 and EXAL Talonite 2 x 1, with Xeno Armored Thrusters and Xeno Dis Cannon x3 and one Xeno Seeker 2, My Paladin is fitted with Fury Drones 1 x4 and Fury drone 2 x 2, with Normal Agility Field generator, and Harmonic Chase 3, the point payout was a solid 100k which is what Ancient Reaper 80s give out during Alien Strike.

    bnot being funny seems to me kix wants everyone to spend on repairs your bound to get hit by aggro fleet when they start 3 or 4 events some days at the same time its getting to a point where its just over kill now why do we need so many events going at once and thats not including vsec runs either it has nothing to do with someones fault for having more than one fleet out so it gets hit the main problem is so many events and vsecs running at same time that give aggro when your trying to stay clear from them its just retarded now.
