    Reapers are NOT worth it, sure my tech is garbage, and my Fleetbay can't support more than two Enforcers, but those things swarmed and obliterated my fleet

    I've been doing BRs with my Paladin, four Guardians and an Enforcer with Arrestor since they've appeared. What I do is send the Paladin and Enforcer South of the BR to the right, while my Cruisers head directly to it. I turn my Enforcer, so it hits the BR with the Arrestor, hindering it's movement. Then the cruisers and Paladin kill the BR. I repeat the process for the other BR. Enforcer stops the BR movement, Drones and cruisers kill the BR. The other trick is to not kill the regular Reapers, as they'll continue to spawn when their numbers drop. 

    You can replace the Enforcer with any T5+ Ship with Arrestor (NET not recommended). I'm sure the same strategy will work with Punishers with XF DC.

    Lucky you, I got 27K per base hit, but let's be honest, the event is really easy if you do the AXIS Deceivers, specially if you have Bastions. I use guardians because I don't have any Bastion and it's pretty doable. I'm happy Kixeye didn't ruined completely this event, like he did with the Alliance War and the other every event in the game.

    Personally like the mix of ships spawn. But kinda confused shouldn't the vanguard be drop bastion. And the regiment Be dropping Cavalier. Think kixeye got it programmed backwards.

    I'm hitting BR 60s, 2 guardian decoys with xeno disintegrator, a paladin with all green drones, and 3 mk4 exterminators with shatter. One of the exterms gets about half beat, the pal loses about 10%, and I fly the guards after the small reapers and send drones after the biguns. One of the guards gets about 25 mins rep, the other gets 6 mins. My guards aren't mkd at all.

    Looks like after the maintenance altairian pve fleets had their space icons changed to very basic ones. It's now not so easy to tell what's where (fleets of different levels) by icons quickly.

    The icons look about the same, but are quite a bit smaller than what they used to be. Which leads one to speculate if something bigger is planned. Planet killer coming up next, perhaps?

    All the fleet icons and names are so screwed up. They have been for a few months now. I don't understand why it's so difficult, it really shouldn't be to just get the icons and names clear and explanatory. It's little things like this that really make the game look sloppy and Kix look lazy/incompetent. I'm not saying it is or they are, just that that is how it looks.

    Well, I was very satisfied with this S&G. I managed to get a ton of Pegasus equipment that was on my list for a while. Bought all resources and T3 Redeemer, as well as a Pegasus. I would've focused on the M5/6 Bastion equipment, but they were in the Regiment, not the Vanguards and I didn't want to waste time retooling my Bastions to use EX shell. 

    Still have 3M points remaining and don't really want to buy more AXIS hulls.

    Appreciate the feedback everyone and glad to hear you all had a good time. I will be posting up a thread for community item requests (soon) so we can compile a new updated list I can get implemented into upcoming Event Stores, etc. 

    Also passing along the small icon issue for the team to look at.

    For me have necro always mean that information is outdated. Is it? Do we have new information about this kind of event? Something big have changed? If not i would say that everything that is not outdated will never be necro.Until this point i have never seen someone call out necro about up to date information. Thats just plain stupid.
