    Sarap answered earlier on saying it was just 2 prizes per tier, what it looks like being is 2 prizes for each tier (including tier 5) and doing the event twice will allow you to pick up the prize from each tier you didn't claim the first time, catch is to do all 50 targets twice to get the second set of prizes, even if you just want the second tier 1 prize, once you've done the 50 targets for the second time though you'll get to claim all of the prizes you skipped the first time. 

    That's my interpretation of the wording, we won't know for sure until the event info is released in full.

    As I understand it you claim one prize the first time around, and then if you choose, you may do it a second time to pick up the second prize from each tier. But you must complete all five tiers before you can claim the second prize from doing a tier twice.

    they need to show that thee not greedy and want are money by letting us complete a tier than complete that tier again for the second prize. So if you can get to tier 3 but cannot go any further than you can master tier 3 to get the second prize. This will allow low level people and non-coiner to get all the prizes that they can get.

    • May Event

      • Players will continue to hunt down Draconian Military Fleets. Players will also be able to take their pick of top prizes, then they can redeem prizes at each tier on their second time through.


    Your wording suggests that the May Event will have more than 2 prizes per tier. Can you confirm this?
    The amount of prizes in the event will remain the same. There will not be more than 2 prizes per tier.
    It says a second time through though. Does that mean full completion of the raid is required to earn the other prizes? Though odds are you don't have the answer. X3
    That would be correct. Completion is required before players can go through and earn the other prizes.

    Well so your saying I have to complete all 50 military fleets twice or i get nothing. Then what will be the point of me wasting my time on this. You will not get any gold from me on this raid. If i cant make it all the way to tier 5 what would be my point and coining to make it to tier I can achieve to at least get something out of the raid. Basically you would be ruling out any newer player or player that can not complete all 5 tiers 2 times

    Why not just call the May raid for big coiners and those with big coiner friends that complete top tiers for them. Tell rest of lower levels and people that cant complete the top teir your a loser and dont even bother logging those days of the raid.

    This would be the most unfair raid Kixeye has ever done and I for one am little pissy you wouid exclude regular players or min coiners from a raid like this.

    • Gifting Gold via Premium Gifts

      • Some of our veteran players will be able to help up-and-coming players climbing through the ranks by buying and sending them Gold. We will be evaluating this ability and looking for feedback from the community. If the overall sentiment from the community is positive, we will look into expanding the feature to more players.


        or will gold be cheaper to buy 



    Think of it this way. Players can now 'buy' the services of higher level players for raids.


    Not if I'm reading it right it's gold you'll be sending to lower level players like the mega crate, equipped ships and blueprints.


    To your first two questions, I believe it will only be Cargo Fleets and Elite Intel Fleets initially; event targets will not count upon launch to my understanding. Other targets and methods of earning Reputation are being worked on.

    We will be monitoring the Gold via Premium Gifts and you do have to complete all the tiers in the May event before you can claim another prize from each tier.
    Thanks for the clarifications, it would be nice if any future reputation targets could also count towards alliance points or vice-versa if at all possible. I know 1000 points is only 5 bases but for the little guys without base hitting fleets (due to mostly working base first) it's a pretty horrific grind to have to do each week.

    Forgot to say kudos to you guys for the charity drive, quite an excellent idea and a great cause too.
    so to be able to obtain both prizes from any given tier we have to 1st have completed all 5 tiers once then we can pick which tiers to do twice?  for example if you have done all 5 tiers once but want both prizes on offer at tier 4 would you have to master the tiers below as well?
    Yes it's just like last raids event mastery except this time you can get all the prizes from tiers 1-4.

    Well they need to think about required completion 2 times of the raid before you get anything. Some people that coin like myself can not always finish the raid twice and we work...Hence why we can coin. I should be able to take part in the raid as much as I can if I coin to make it to tier 3 or 4 or 5 one time threw I should get the prize for that tier or you will not get single gold coin from me on this raid.

    No, surprising that this is so hard to understand, do tier 1 get 1 of 2 possible bp's, do tier 2 get 1 of 2 possible bp's, do tier 3 and get 1 of 2 possible bp's, tier four you usually get to pick one of 2 hulls. do tier 5 and get 1 of 2 top prises. do that again and at each tier you can pick the prize option you did not pick the first time. So in total you can walk out with 6 bp's, 2 hulls and the 2 top prizes.

    The idea of gifting gold from 1 account to another instantly brings this scenario to mind

    Player creates a bogus account on a separate computer from the one he normally plays on hacks gold and gifts it to his main account his new bogus account will at some point be caught and banned but what happens to the gold that he has sent to himself of others?

    I know you've said this will only be given to some veterans at first but that is clearly with a view to general release and it just screams of Kixeye providing people with yet another way to cheat the system to me

    That would be correct. Completion is required before players can go through and earn the other prizes.
    Meaning (if i understand it correctly) like in previous raids you still gain a prize from doing a tier, but if you want the second prize form that tier you need to do all 5 tiers, before you can claim the second prize. But doing all tiers is not required to gain the standard one prize per tier.

    This sounds like if you can't complete the entire raid, you might as well, not bother. You only get to choose from the top tier once you complete it and then go through again....what about those players that can't complete the top tier from not having the ships for it yet.....You have done it again where all the biggest players can get everything and the little guys starting out get nothing....No I am not one of the little guys, just thinking of friends playing that don't stand a chance and probably won't try because of something like this.

    Hopefully that is not the case if we have to complete the whole raid before we can pick up any of the lower tier prizes not many below 45 will be getting a prize at all just saying

    Not sure of the question on this one. As far as I know, there will be a charity drive where purchases made during a certain time frame will be given to the IAVA. I'll update when I have more details.

    As previously stated, we will be monitoring this. Also, we have looking into the possible ways this can be abused and are working with countermeasures. For example, newly created accounts will not have this ability.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the little guys get nothing, they are still able to earn prizes in the early Tiers.

    Players do not have the complete the event to earn any of the early Tier prizes, they will unlock as players progress. Players will have to go through the event if they wish to earn the other prize in each Tier.
