At what time do you plan to re-release the older UAVs. i have a valkyrie carrier i'd like to fit with older UAVs. due to the fact the newer UAVs cost around 1 million points in the forsaken mission and at my current level and tech i cant possibly make it that far, would you consider making a UAV campeign so we can win the older UAVs. it would also help lower levels if you dropped the level requirement for a few campeigns and added new campeigns to win slightly better tech. i would also like the older drones released again for low to mid level base defence

    Valkyrie carriers work with the old style UAV, namely the Dragonfly, Hornet, Scarab, and Locust. Unlike modern UAVs, which dealt their damage then moved on to a new target regardless of whether they were still alive, the older versions stuck around the same enemy until their swarm time expired, only chaining when their initial target was destroyed.

    Search up videos of the Atlas Carrier, you can easily see how the old gen UAVs worked in combat.

    A nice touch, if they really wanted to put Customers First! would be to have some sort of policy that 1 year after a tech's introduction, it would become available as an earnable blueprint, maybe even a drop from salvage fleets. That was a reasonable way of doing things, shouldn't require much new code (the less new code the fewer the bugs ( in theory... ) ).

    The players that like to stay current would already have it and wouldn't care. And after a year, most tech is near-obsolete for top-tier play anyway -- but being able to get older tech would be huge benefit to new players working their way up (ignoring for a moment the stark reality that new players are very, very rare). 

    Why there isn't better support and encouragement for up and coming players is a bafflement. Without out a steady stream of fresh meat, how is  the game supposed to survive in the long run?

    And fixing the lag would be a good thing too.   Maybe they don't want new players because their low-budget, discount servers are already maxed-out. Hard to know for sure, y'know?

    its easy to get 1 million points even with only punishers autoing 40s..just have to put some seat time in..you do realize you have 6 days to get it done ? If you cant pull 1 milion points auting 40s you shouldn't play this game. you can get 12 days build time of punisher tokens every FMs for 4000 points..that is a FREE built ship every week instant that can auto 40s for instant. You can also work on getting icebreakers & there is LOTS of tokens for that..maybe enough to build 1 FREE instant every week..1 icebreaker can auto a 61 for instant repair. I hour or 2 a day should get you to T5 for the uav EASILY. Also Valkries is crap..dont bother refitting or builing old ship. Focus on building ICEBREAKERS

    Valk Carriers will not do well in the current targets except maybe salvages.  There are much better uses of your shipyard time than Valks.

    hornet UAV was the initial UAV released for skyfires, polistes is the escalation weapon. Every ship gets 2 weapons in the raid cycle..the one released when the hull is released & then a better one 2 months later escalating the power of the hull. The exception to that would be the limited missle  & limed scatter gun the manticore just got last raid which was re-released in the current TLC...I wouldn't necessarily call either of the weapons escalations being better when they are more of a trade off having exact same damage & reload & weight & losing like 3% or 4% defense in 1 damage type trading off for +5% speed they could be considered actually worse especially when you factor in they are limited EDIT and you have to put a even amount on all ships to keep speeds sync'd or pay attention to the fleet build to keep the fleet sync'd if using darkwing CIC you can get away with not putting the limited weapons on all ships & still be sync'd
