    The Condor is one of my favorite ships. I think you'd really like the Siege Driver too if you enjoy hitting bases.

    why not tell us what we was gonna face before hand so we could make ships and ahve the right set up's lol all i see in my sector and the ones around me is people dieing it reminds me of when the normal vega fleets changed so its either refit all my ships which im looking at days to do or coin the repairs ? last event was fair this one is for coiners is it not ?

    We tweak things until the day of event. Part of the fun is the surprise. We share as much as we can beforehand, but we think an event where you already know everything would be sort of boring.

    There was no suprise in the need to have to coin long repairs in order to get anywhere. i feel sorry for the lower lvls, they got to work their **** off just to get to the LVL 1 whatevers ... never mind tho ... Surprise !!

    considering its only the strafe speed you can take them out with anything with a higher forward speed (the decent pilot) and if your not a decent pilot your more than likely going to mess up.

    Positive - An event

    Negative - Mass and repair times were raised prior to the event, costs for rewards for the event were raised.

    This event is way harder than the last one. What do the frigates have? strafe 10?

    I coined for the first time. If I can not make the 1 mil + for the new frigates, I will not only not coin again but will never. ever click on a Kixeye link again.

    I am not making a threat in any way. This is a promise. Because when a level 50+ fleet of mine with glad 2, can not hit a level 33 fleet without taking major damage, that smells like greed to me!

     

    The game is no longer fun! Wake up Kixeye please

    You need iridum and rear if you want to effectivly take out the cargoes without major damage...

    Nope. Not at all accurate. We haven't touched repair times.

    Because of the way the event fleet builds are, and the lengthy repair times involved because of this, the prize is unattainable for most players ... unless they coin.

    Even for me as a level 31 and quite a few ranc fleets for both PvP and PvE, i can't deal enough damage...though I am now changing my strategy a bit but I'm not optimistic of it' sucess

    Let me put this into perspective. The last event I was using auto 35s as the 40s were too powerful for my Nighthawks. At that time I had to grind 3 X 35 Auto fleets all the way through and I only managed to make it 5 hours or so before event ended (for the Dread that is). Now I have Apocs for 50s which, when I hit, usually only lose between 2-4% damage. Fighting these 50s I lose between 35-50%. There is no way at all I could have the Frigate with this event without coining and/or grinding for the whole 3 days at every given hour of sunlight. That is, of course, unless I coin. Which I refuse to do because these events are spurred on by the need for greed. I used to buy coins regularly and since the rise of repair times, dramatic build times for BP ships (that you have to spend hours hunting may I add?) and these events that are designed to bleed your wallet dry, I have bought coins less and less. The simple fact of the matter is that the investment in buying coins, over time, given diminishing returns. Just like a bad investment, you don't continue to put money into something that is starting to cost more for the same outcome. You sell or lease. Please re-evaluate your priorities because as it stands right now, it certainly doesn't look like customer satisfaction is number one on the list.

    As I see it, this event was made for high level, overpowered coiners. Level 40 and beyond. Can someone level 35 and below hit and get ANYTHING in this event? No? It will take literal DAYS to hit low level fleets to scrap up some data cores to get maybe somewhere close to any prize. Last event was fairly good. It was challenging, and a good first event for us. But this event was made to make you throw your money through the computer. Nothing but repair times are pasted all across the screen. Lower the repair times, or MAKE EVENTS EASIER!!! :neutral_face:

    Are you sure you are flying them right? My rev fleet only lost 1 ship attacking a 50. probably because I split their Cruisers and Frigates away from their Battleships.

    Glad Apocs - and I'm flying them as I usually would a 50. But like I said, the event is a way to generate income so they make them exponentially harder.
