    If you have 5 enforcers with diff 3 shields and EXAL heavy tungsten armour. and a carrier with the same armour, and make sure u have plenty of dps in your ships, the 70's are doable with a 3% damage, 80's with 6% damage. I used all non-xeno eclipse drivers on my enforcers. three of them were mk5. I believe I could have fared better if I had xeno eclipse drivers. Just so folks know, it is doable with acceptable damage. Just need to energy based defenses. I had shared the video, as to how to do it, earlier. I didnt do it. Someone else made the vid. I just followed it!

    I'm just gonna point out Kixeye that withholding the shipfactory 13  upgrade until the event update was an absolutely dishonorable thing to do. Players have been spending months on the resent base upgrades to complete them before the release of tier 7. A lot of players, myself included, felt that if we put in the time & effort to do this we would be all set to start the new season. Makes sense right??? Well apparently NOT. Kixeye, you withheld the critical ship factory 13 upgrade till just before the event hit and it just happens to be required to use the new hulls? Really!

    Even if we just happen to have the resources lying around for such an upgrade AND our upgrade queue is empty, it still takes 9 days+ to upgrade the necessary module to start building the new cruiser. This essentially sets most of your average players that do not coin but thought they were all ready to go back by about 1 week before they can even start building the new stuff. So not only are we behind coining players cuz of coin but also cuz of your fail to release the upgrade with all the rest of them for factory 13.

    Never mind that the dmg output on the fleet targets is way too high. The event fleets are absurdly imbalanced. I know I've seen a handful of players that just happened to have just the right amount of energy resist on enuff ships to make the event achievable, BUT I'm seeing a lot of players struggling simply due to which resistors they chose last season (nvm that last season was almost entirely explosive and projectile resistance mandatory) lol.

    I think you could have at least released ship factory 13 months ago with all the other upgrades so we were ready fit to use the hull and tech if we unlocked them this event. Instead you you INTENTIONALLY screwed with your players. I suspect you will lose a lot of players when they coin for a hull and tech they should be able to immediately use but they can't. Maybe this was an oversight BUT i know you guys better than most after playing this game for several years now.

    I'm done with my soapbox for now. But seriously KIXEYE!
    i have had ship fact 13 for quite awhile, i'm not sure what your saying here. in fact it was announced back in november.
    https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/718971

    I think what he may be saying is that Kixeye made no specific announcement about the fact that factory 13 and ship lab 12 are required to build the new ship until it was released. In other words, no advanced notice. Many of us planned differently. My incorrect guess was that fleet bay upgrades were more pressing due to the ship mass hinted at in the season announcement. I could be mis-reading his post though...

    though...

    When that was posted about module upgrades I had a feeling all was needed for T7, quite lucky as just nearing last upgrade, ship lab to 12.

    10 pages and no reaction except the event extension ...
    the cm's have certainly muzzled and the Dev team was on vacation for the event.
    otherwise I can not explain this garbage event.

    whos talking about the event????  store was clear in a few hours. (not much prizes anyway), some didn't have the same luck since whales started flying that monster, how's possible elite enforcer fleet  level 99  only gives 10%  damage to a bastion cruiser fleet level 90.,   the xp of that beast needs to be changed.

    when punisher got released, we were able to use hellfires to kill it with no issues. that's why we call it battleships.  cruiser its a tank  not a long range ship.

    375k per piece. Max 4 of the 8 pieces needed, though, per event. So, 3 million for the full BP.

    I don't think you quite get what is being said. He said 3M if you acquire the BP piece by piece. Which you can do so if you do not have the time or the fleets to hit the fleets during events. Hence, I can get one BP piece at a time, should I see fit, for 375k  EACH EVENT . It will still be 2M if you get it in one go. Seriously it's not that hard to comprehend.

    Sarcasm doesn't resonate well, unless it's specified. No offense, but a bit of misinformation like that will cause an uproar. Also, when I saw that, I waited and see if Lee would verify it.
