    The orbital laser building is ok when you just have one (are we likely to see these as an event prize?) but when you start adding more that's when it becomes overpowered! im glad you got rid of the cave waves they were in danger of becoming mini fortresses. im on wave 40 and haven't found it to not to be too stressful lol.

    The laser means you need to use air a lot more to start with, but with the shopped hovers and hercs air doesnt get through and with so much corrosion anti air EHS just get wiped out in one stinger shot now. Its sort of ridiculous...I think the event is stupid personally.

    On a lighter note i like the idea of the mercs. Am worried that high levels of it will cost thor to build though like the missiles do. If this is how it will be i wont be using them much at all.

    i think the event sucks im not coining i never do in events but all the attacking this one is very hard pluss they made the units in the bases customized now the drone silos kill titans easy ahah this is a joke made for coiners im gonna try and get everythting but my god its hard without coins pluss the prizes sucks as i tested in preview and take too long to upgrade

    i haven't attempted the fortress yet but i think i can get through it. i agree the attacking side is harder but at least we don't have to deal with satellite bases before a fortress or cave bases so i think its evened out!

    i personally don't feel this is the hardest event I have done, it is certainly a challenge but isn't that the point of it?

    now before I get inundated with abuse I don't have spectre or titan and am currently on wave 50 and plan to get to my usual mid 60's before I stop as I always do,

    I do enjoy the island waves, theyre something different and encourage peole to think about how to complete instead of the usual spamming of titan,

    the orbital laser is also something new which I think is a nice introduction to the game, we need new stuff constantly coming in else the game will go stale right?

    cannot comment on the price for the Banshee as I already have it, the schematic price seems about right to me.

    not overly fussed on the new merc camp marauders etc, but I will take them anyway lol

    guys, the event is about strategy and thinking, and a little gold saves a lot of hassle, but my main units ive used are suicide valks, raptors and banshees on attack, plus of course megas etc and on defence mainly megas and hovers, you don't need any great uniques to do events

    too hard with ehover and laser building .. this should be a strategy game not a suicide game i can't waste a punch of platoon to win a stupiid wave and about the other waves ? and where is the vank schematic it wasn't exclusive or unique so it should have been with the event price .....  extremly hard

    I think it is too hard, it is to insane all my toons are dead because the blitz but be serious the original prize of the banshee in the preview was 32,500 xp please put like it was on the preview and put on sale another things not only the drone silo reaper drone and reaper and stingers schematic. Everyone try to win but with this prizes and fortress are a form of killing all of our toons, anyone of the levels 30 to 35 can beat the wave 50 and in the past event this players can get until wave 50. For my opinion is better to put the events like were on the past because was a little beat easier the kondor the first time at 3,850 and then 38,000 xp please put like was back o put only defense and the outpost of the waves 5 10 15 and so on and fortress at the 12 22 32 42 and so on please think it.

    I have complete wave 40 TWICE now and Kixeye still hasn't given me my xp for it OR letting me pass it even though I destroy the entire base and I get the pop up saying what resources I got from the attack. I already sent in a ticket about it.

    Laser buildings have screwed this event up completely. They've rendered most ground units useless and the overpowered AA make it so that even aircraft have a really hard time getting through.
    The laser buildings HAVE to get some sort of nerf. No one can make it to wave 40 without incredible losses if they don't have customized HS, or some unique unit or Banshees.
    This has to be the worst event so far and if you want it to be even remotely successful you guys need to make some changes to that building.
    Infinite range, huge DPS and a stupid 3 second warning is a terrible idea. And they can' even be baited because they only shoot at big plats

    bring back the banshee wingman tech and peacekeeper teck, because banshees are a lot less powerful without them

    Also the event has been laggy, not sure if its just for me but has been definitely laggy than the last one

    The difficulty after wave 60 is way over the top. Same with the amount of Attack waves...x2 island wave, x3 mayhem, x5 mayhem x7, x8 island wave. (x means the waves 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s).

    Added a picture of Wave 85. 3 Lasers, 5 drone silos, 1 rocket silo, 12 watchtowers and the walls full spammed of e-vanqs and e-hovers? Are you serious?

    I made it to 91 but it was extreme time intensive and annoying to get nearly every wave as an attackwave...

    such a very powerful oxidant green stuff. titan under fire can t do it more than few second. i get the feeling this 8 % damage buff gain during ops shadow makes everything to be killed faster.i m lvl 39 loosing faith, not really interesting this event.

    I'm on wave 62 now.  It's okay difficulty wise it's the prize that are letting this down.  For so much hard work we want a really powerful unit like Banshee or EVanq.  These Mechs are too weak to be considered a 'top prize'.
