    "I hope this information has been helpful! I’d be happy to offer any further advice on Event builds or answer questions if people have them. Good luck and stay frosty out there!" 

    I see a lot of unanswered questions. Main question I would like to see an answer to is the one regarding the difficulty level of the B tier. It was indeed just as difficult as A tier last raid. And will the C tier be reduced points again? that sorta went over like a fart in church last time. Thanks.

    wonder what kind of changes have been done to raid ?  the tips & tricks People give most likely will help Kix make game more difficult.. but what I did was : find a target that makes most points for You , with less damage as possible, hit it over & over. good luck & have fun at it, game is not suppose to be stressful :D

    Not sure if its the direction the game is going but the right part of the snow base does not seem to be in the water but on solid ground.  Are we going into amphibian mode ???   Are we merging with farmville ???

    I mean, we start in at one side and systematically and destroy all defenses on our top and bottom flanks until we hit the snow base. There will be a yellow circle where we can drop units to raid and assault the base, and depending on the ships we use different units will come out and then our ships will have to hold position and defend the assault from hostile ships seeking to reclaim the base. Geological barriers will aid and assail us, and I'm expecting cold and harsh weather...maybe even a cryo weapon or two. Short range flame cannons, heat and cold resistance...


    In those little assaults, small recon ships will drop a few assault teams, light support hulls like longships destroyers and LC's will drop an LAV and some assault teams, medium siege ships like Battle Barges and Levisthans will drop more, and so on and so forth.

    Tritons and superfortesses, and drone carriers will not have to go as close to the base to deploy assault teams but tank deployment will still need to be close...ships with UAV's can drop invasion teams from ther drones and give them fire support against draconian defenders... Missile and cannons will be best at troop fire support...mortar and rocket ships won't aid troops if it's danger close

    I'm just gonna say, they want us to fight bases from Ocean's at War. Really Kix? This the best you can think of or do you realize your dying? Well if the rumors are true as to the prize of the flagship (50mil) and the interdictor at (80mil) then congrats you just killed yourself

    its not OAw its BP look at how bp started.. ice is a reasonbl way to go when its ocean or a water world game how did it become a water world ???. u don't have to win 10 vipers or u defenatly dont have to have tha phantom nighthawk the regular is just as good just don't have the map feature u decide what u do..

    Robot your company's greed astounds me and for that reason you can stick this raid up ur rear end. 72.5m for prizes is absolutly taking the piss feel free to ban me when ever you like you will be doing me a favour.

    If you are looking for res, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

    Dude this would be insane! Maybe you don't command them, or the troops could be deployed from NPC Forsaken vessels that you need to defend. Man, what if this could be a two way street. You defend your ships coming in, and a friend could kill enemy vessels trying to reinforce the dracs? Maybe even if this was a purely theatrical experience in which you had no control. I think this, maybe not implemented in the raids, could be an awesome campaign. Like you defend Harlock's men, while they storm a drac base or ship recovering intel or something, from enemy reinforcements. This could quite honestly be the most epic thing I have ever had seen on the forums, ever.

    Wait a minute, what if, they implemented this. In a sence that you could create a boarding or landing party and upgrade them? Then they would have a reason to have a level 6 outpost, more land tiles, and as a result, more land to defend a new structure for this kind of stuff. Or it could be very easily done in the existing weapons lab, specails and a new hull, the SLAV (Sea to Land Assault Vessel) or a New UAV For transporting Persons in assulats that could get a special for transporting LAV's. This would bring a new meaning to those buildings.

    Dude what if you used this kind of stuff to take control of a Drac Base - not defend it with but just take it; then defend the base with your ships like you would your base, then have that Drac base begin producing uranium for you! Or, some other crap like a second dock. As for the dracs reclaiming it, you will be fighting them off like with the old mines. They show up, you fight them back or you die. and they reclaim control. With a bubble. 

    Man you got my mind thinking. Wasn't the purpose I am sure, but what you just said was increadible.

    i agree with campaign style raids, less of a headache and probably less lag, just a thought kixeye.

    I can't see raids going to Campaign format , part of the raid is for People to compete for targets, probably fight for them is the object, remember repairs make money.for Kixeye, FM on the other hand is just for people to catch up, Campaign style would work there

    As for upcoming raids just a few thoughts...

    1.  most sectors are united until a raid comes, not all but some - so why have we never had a raid structure where it allows each sector to compete against the other sectors (for example every base spawns 20 - 50 or whatever number of targets with a varieties at that players lvl - when all targets are complete the sector has defeated the enemy - the top 5 - 10 sectors from every 100 win prizes based on their finishing place and level

    2. i started playing this game with friends, and being able to raid with in a team effort rather than trying to beat them to the targets we both need was much more enjoyable

    - some people may not like people joining - then give the first person to attack a target the option that they preset, such as

    only i can enter

    2 can enter and points are split

    2 can enter and points are by damage done

    maximum can enter and points are split

    maximum can enter and points are by damage done

    this way no whining he jumped into my hub - this way we call all decide how to play - and can play together with friends if we choose


    3. why does it have to be hit the same thing over and over again - some people like bases some like fleets - i think it was best when it was a mixed up mess, with bases and fleets... do a full set or repetitively do the same thing to gain points what ever floats your boat, i think giving people the option to hit what they want, is the best way to go, while still awarding bonus points for set completions - like things that ended in 4's had phoons, 0 and 5s were bases 1 and 2s were fleets or whatever it was... you get the point there was versatility regardless of your style of play and each player could choose how to get their points i would like to see that back again choices in every raid - not 6 months of fleets - 4 months of hubs - 5 months of bases

    I really appreciate these tips and strategy threads with one caveat:  either I happen to have the suggested fleets in inventory or I am SOL (Xhit out of luck).  Build and refit times are too long for people to respond to this advice.  I coined a couple of changes three raids ago and frankly it wasn't worth it (I didn't enjoy some enormous advantage in the raid game play.  Now I just wait and see what comes (come what may) and save my money.
