    THEY ARE FIXED !!!!!

    well in the last week, i've literally read all 1023 replies in this post. as i've anxiously awaited the return or banishment of the suicide valkries. and to my great pleasure, relief, and newfound hope in kixeye - they have returned. the animation is correct, they dive bomb into their target. and the damage seems to be correct, they explode on death and have large splash - as i have lv5 suits and lv14 valks. they are working as they did before the glitch.

    so, all the negative messages ive seen this week, im sooo glad that kixeye has risen above them and proved them wrong. whether this glitch was intended or not, all i can say is they've put the valks back to how they were. i cannot distinguish any diminished damages or splash, or speed or any other quality to them. i did notice a couple extra hovers in giant thors, but thats easily enough dealt with.

    KIXEYE, THANK YOU FOR STANDING BY YOUR WORD AND RETURNING SUICIDE VALKRIES TO THEIR PREVIOUS GLORY!!! very glad i got hope restored, i was holding out for yall. ;)

    THEY ARE FIXED !!!!!

    This is pretty much what kixeye makes me want to do... every day...

     As you can see they are still working on the valk issue guys so they are not fixed yet.

    Sigh, this bug is just too damned convenient. Suicide evalks are how I used to do Giants and then all of a sudden once it caught on and the super hard Giants were no longer impossible, this "bug" (term used so loosely its not funny) happens protecting all of Kixeyes hard work to make Thor difficult. It also made events wayyyyyy easier. Sure micro healing them was a pain, but it made the game playable. It cannot be that hard too put them back the way they were, I refuse to believe it. What I can believe without an issue is Kixeye dragging out the fix as long as possible keeping their precious Giant thor depots hard and making Evalks useless for the upcoming event. Imagine how easy this event would be with working Suicide Evalks! I'm in the preview, I have seen the base designs and I can sure as hell tell you if we had working Evalks, anyone who had them would make it past Wave 80 with ZERO issue. But alas, they are broken and still not fixed and I'll bet anyone 500 Gold they will NOT be fixed for the event. It wouldn't be profitable after all for Kix if they were. I'd also wager that once they are "fixed", they will not function as they had before, not even close.

    that comment of you being in the preview sever??? how i have not seen any post on it,just wondering?

    Try using the valks to take out a Watchtower in a Giant Thor...then get back to us. They simply just fall out of the sky and DO NOT CRASH INTO THE TOWER LIKE THEY DID BEFORE THEY WERE BROKEN.


    Please, PLEASE actually try things before you post.

    Other then the fact they are now a little more sensitive to angle of attack they work fine. I dont mind having to use a few more to get the job done. Any further tweaking on them could make them worse,,, dont touch!!!!!

    i suppose it depends on HOW they are not working for you. because as far as i know, the updates go system wide, not by sector. so everyone should have the same valks, if any. now, i cannot for sure say that they did not adjust the damage scale - but i do know that before the glitch, it was taking me 22 lv14 valks with lv5 sui vest to take down each tower/units on each side of giant thor... it is taking me the same now. which is about 88 valks per giant - though it seems they added 1 or 2 extra hovers, so im still using bout 100 for each (which i was before anyways). i dont see any nerf in the range/splash/damage of the valks.

    everyone i talk to has their old valks back. if you/your sector doesnt, i'd start making tickets. best of luck.

    This is pretty much what kixeye makes me want to do... every day...

    Yeah I hate to say that the fix didn't work whoever is saying it did. The Suicide Evalks still get shot down, I did 25 evalks, 4 were shot down. Also there is a noticeable difference in the damage. The old Evalks would not only take out the intended target but would damage stuff around it.  It now just does a poooof and will take out some Evalks on like a giant. LOL

    the ones saying they work are people who were not using them to their best advantage..kixeye are aware they are not dealing same damage and are still working on the,..they do suicide but not the same as before..Titan also is having less of an impact than it used to..(former kamikaze titan pilot attests the  boom is less than before)

    mmmmmmm ok

    The valks are not fixed. Sure they now suicide into targets but the damage is way off. Now if this is a nerf to them then that would be fine if kix was to explain it that way. However they commented that they know the damage was off so no valks are not fixed.

    well in my opinion they are still in need of work... the damage is still no right from what i have seen... I've had it where the suicide find and kill some stuff but then say a laser tank right next to the target remains fine... seems very odd... like i said in my opinion they are not right yet... as many other in sector chat have said too... again this is my opinion and others in my sector  :)

    they are not back to their original level of damages i really cannot understand why some players claims that they are all players i know on the game agree with me, even kixeye says they re not back to their original levels.


    so why on earth would you come on this thread as a players to claim that they are?????

    well i am not sure how you use yours but i know exactly the damages i would inflict with them on towers in giant thors and it's nowhere near their old specs, but hey many players, myself and kixeye mods and programmers must be having a collective hallucination then

    lets be honest here... they were originally customised to suicide into units and inflict damage to surrounding area and they do! they should never have been able to directly hit towers/bunkers. we had our fun but back to reality now and the valks are working as they were supposed to. end of story really isn't it :D

    no it's not


    i played real hard for those first you had to unlock them, then the elite version then the schema then open the mods all that cost time lots of time to get the reso and thorium


    so why should i accept that they should be less powerful now, once released it's too late, you cannot just change something because players have found a way to use them that doesn't suit you. 

    would you be happy if someone halved your processors or your ram after you bought your pc? no, well this is the same the elite suicide valks with full specs is what i had and that is what i want to have again
