It's been a long time since upgrades for the Combat Module have been released...

So, do you think that these modules need fresh upgrades(i.e. More Turret Slots)?

    It's not just a matter of combat modules or a new armor and other equipment. Only a miracle can help. Kix promised to keep bases competitive and up to date before the altairian season began, but we all know the facts...

    combat module would be interesting if they gain a range and armor health modifier , 3%range and 10% health per level.

    damage is useless if it cannot reach the target, if 4-5 cms can see the same target instead, they can fire in unison and is better than a lone cms with double turret.

    It would also be better if we could control our base operations (like targeting :tongue:)

    Would be even better if we could deploy a sentry fleet in our base against our attackers, like altarians are doing now. imagine putting your libs behind cms to screw your aggressors.

    Fleets that are guarding base engage with base combat maybe? xD

    nope that would be unbalanced and against the meta of sieging: Aggressor should have always numbers on their side. Would be balanced if we could deploy a fleet that cannot go over base level or must be 5 levels low, in that way you cannot overwhelm your aggressor but just support your defense. And in that way we can even deploy our lower tier stuff.

    If you ask me, the entire way bases are being handled is **** backwards.

    It takes literal YEARS to fully develop a base into "end game" territory, with fully upgraded modules, all the best available tech, etc.  It should be a juggernaut that requires some real effort to take down.  Multiple fleets should burn on one base.

    Instead, what we have is a system where one fleet of <insert newest season of coined fleets> can take down MULTIPLE "end game" bases before having to head home.

    Add that to the fact that the fleet bay and fleet manager get locked down during a base attack, so even if the player is online there is no way to augment base defenses (something that a player who is actually at the controls SHOULD be able to do), not to mention that base tech lingers at least a full 6 months behind ship tech... you can see how lopsided the thinking is regarding the current base balance.

    Kix clearly wants bases to be like houses of paper cards, which take an enormous investment to build, but any schmo can casually walk up and knock over.

    I think it should be the other way around, but meh... this game is pretty much done due to the idiotic decisions of the company anyway.

    Correction- it doesn’t take one fleet to demolish an end game base, it takes one ship. Look at even MKI Sovereigns and Inquisitors. I’ve seen a single Sovereign MKI 3 Star a base in the high 70s. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Bases should only be taken down in one hit by the best basers, The currect tech is more than 6 months behind. The bases should have the SAME level of tech, armor and weapons of the fleets that we fly. Maybe even a full season dedicated to base upgrades would be welcome. So many players are discouraged and leave the game because they cant protect their hard earned resources anymore.

    While a base oriented season would be really nice, that just wouldn't bring in as much money for Kixeye. FvF has and always will be the focus of the game, FvB in higher levels typically doesn't lead to the base owner coining repairs, just the aggressor. In PvP, coiners will both coin their fleets, leading to twice the revenue. An excellent idea but sadly will never happen.

    You are wrong cause you dont consider actual bubble timers and repair times of factory, if one players targets you and keeps on basing you every focking day and often, he can delay upgrades and ship building not by days but weeks or even months, it's not a matter of coin but a matter to have no more your genitalia weared out.
