    So do we get blueprints off these drac outposts?
    Previous raids the drop rate was slightly increased, due to the greater amount of salvs floating around tooo.

    Now with these drac outposts, and the abibility to attack with 4 ppl at once.. can we or can we not receive blueprints?
    Will we all 4 get the blueprint? Or how will this work?

    I like the idea of this raid :) now I have to ask. the docking glitch that is in the game still works. I do not use any program to alter the game code and the docking glitch is there It will allow someone to dock and repair their fleets instantly if they catch it right. I can not catch the glitch all the time. Will I get banned for using this glitch when I do not use any cheat program to alter game code? The glitch is in the game. Please let me know because I do not want to get my account banned for using a glitch that is in the game. and I want to try to be one of the top 4 in my sector.
    May not be the biggest or the baddest, don't care if I win or loose. I am a winner just for trying

    The game isn't as fun as it use to be, it seems kixeye's main thought isn't game play improvements anymore it is "what can we do to get the players to spend money?" I'm sick of stuff being researched and/or bp's found just for an items stats to be completely changed AFTER you refitted a fleet with them, then you need to refit again, it almost seems that is done on purpose to get more money.

    The very first Base Invaders event is starting soon! During this event the Draconians are stepping up their campaign to colonize and crush the sectors currently occupied by the Forsaken. Using the resources gathered during the last four Revenge Raids, the Dracs will start construction of their mighty war bases. Expect Draconian construction sites to arrive quickly and be very well guarded. Count on their best fleets and heaviest defense platforms to be deployed as they seek to delay and deter any Forsaken response. They are highly organized.

    But in their hubris they have underestimated the Forsaken yet again. Incomplete Drac bases have only a tiny fraction of the power a fully operational base would have, which gives the Forsaken an opportunity to strike. In preparation for this very day the Forsaken Council has been training their Captains to join forces and work cooperatively. Up to four players can now join forces in a single battle to create huge armadas of Forsaken ships - an unstoppable force to overcome any immovable object. No, the Dracs will not see this coming...

    So Captains, be cooperative, be brave, be victorious, and we will all prevail!

    Combat Rules
    This event is primarily a multiplayer combat event. To succeed you will need to group up with other players and attack as a combined force. The more players you fight alongside, the less damage you will take and the faster you will achieve the event prizes.
    • Quota and leaderboard points are awarded from the damage you do to Drac base platforms and ships.
    • Looted resources no longer count toward quota and leaderboard points.
    • Draconian bases are numbered like player bases. They are also level locked like player bases. Which means that you can only attack Drac bases within +/- 5 levels of your level.
    • Loot is given equally to all players in the same battle whenever any single Drac platform or ship is destroyed. The more powerful the Drac base the more loot is given from destroying it. Players will be able to over-loot up to 5x just as when attacking player bases.
    • Up to four players can be in combat against a Draconian Outpost at one time.
    • Battles are 'rolling' which means that players can join while other players are already in combat.
    • A yellow glow around a Draconian Outpost means that it has less than 4 players attacking it, and you are able to join the battle if you so choose.
    • A red glow around a Draconian Outpost means that the maximum 4 players are already in combat and you cannot join.
    • Only Draconian Outposts support 4 player battles. Salvages, player bases, etc. are still single fleets, or a maximum of 2 players.
    • There is no Friendly Fire! You cannot attack or damage other players' ships while in combat against a Draconian Outpost.
    • Each player can only have 1 fleet in a multiplayer battle.


    Prizes
    Due to the epicness of the event a suitably epic prize has been garnered. The blueprint to the largest Draconian ship to date, the mighty Dreadnought, has been found and will be given to the top 4 players in each sector. Not the best 4 player group but the best 4 players. Nevertheless, grouping up with 4 other players will lead to less damage to your ships and quicker progression in the event.

    Please note, leaderboard/quota points are generated from the damage done to Drac platforms and defending ships. Looted resources no longer count toward leaderboard/quota points.

    Sector Prize: Draconian Dreadnought Hull for the top 4 players. 8 Weapons, 4 armors, 4 specials, 13000 total weight.

    Quota Prize: Draconian Compound Armor. Reduces damage taken from all surface weapons.

    Extra Information

    Repairs time will be halved during the event and Salvage fleets will drop off in number as the Draconian channel more of their resources into constructing bases. Player relocation will also be off.

    Good luck Captains! Cooperate with your Forsaken brethren and show the Draconians the righteous power of the Forsaken Alliance!
    ok i like how the top 4 players get it and i can't wait to kick some Draconian ****

    I hit in sector, including my home sector, If you ever see me in your sector expect the same.
    If you don't like it then hit me back, if you are too weak to hit me back, that's probably because you live in a no-hitting in sector, sector.

    You know if kixeye would just offset the timer by a ramdom + or - 3 seconds this issue would be mostly solved. Crazy some still abuse it.
    BTW if you use it and win YOU will always know you cheated to do it, where is your honor?

    It would be decent as well if only coressponding fleet levels are able to hit the similar sized drac fleets :}:}:}:}

    my guess would be yes. since this event is not about collecting resources its about doing damage to there outposts and you get points for doing so.

    My questions are:
    -would merc fleets count towards our damage control
    -is there anything stopping ppl from spamming bunker busters by cc-ing? It would be fair-er if they were jammed so you have to use your fleets

    this was nothing close to giving us advance warning. the last 3 raids have been the same type. people have been refitting for a while to participate in this raid....and now u change the whole thing around. while this event may be fun to play, i doubt kixeye will be able to pull it off without massive glitching....but we will see. we should have been given 2 weeks notice with this raid, as well as specific info about how it was going to be played because it is so different. the fb page gave NO info at all. the released video did not show any real info at all. Once again Kixeye you fail to see whats important here....the players. but then again, we would have refitted for nothing anyway because you would have just changed the weapon stats on us again....its time Kixeye stepped up and started doing its fkn job.

    You need a mix of anti ship and anti base ships. You should have plenty of both already. Just make do with what you have. They don't have to announce anything.
