    Re: new faction... Le sigh.... No news as of yet. There was plans for a new faction in May but this got delayed as we got busy implementing new features instead. As it stands, there may be a new faction sometime later this year.


    Now wait a minute here. All of May you kept saying the new faction was not planned for May. Even tho so many of us read it on this forum at one time it was.  Now you are actually admitting that it was planned for a May release.. Please tell me I'm not the only one reading this and wondering how Doom expects us to believe anything he says.

    What is the  point in winning and building new ships, if you just throw it all out the window for a toybox?

    Why did I waste my valuable shipyard  time on an arena fleet?

    Can we have a toybox base competition next? How about a toybox raid?
    stop whinging already, the game is perfect :)

    Tokens ? I will not use anymore tokens - last build token I used add 24 hours to the build , then Customer Services Response to the ticket was to give me enough coin to take care of 1/2 of the added time (24 coin) so just to catch up to where I was originally at with the build cost me coin SMH ... so bring on the new prizes and additional uranium holding capabilities please

    CM Doomrooster.. Can we get an idea 2-3 weeks before you start coding , how new FAT is going to work .. It's very hard to make changes last minute as you sad yourself and better yet tell us about new changes during the start of the tournament. Please learn from your mistakes not repeat them.

    Yes i know .. it's 2-3 weeks of ****,that can start now .. but look at the brights sight .. you can't be blamed for not telling us ahead of time. And you may find some of us have great test cases you can use during testing. :)

    *edited for clarification.
    Highly unlikely that they would put in a base relocation feature in the middle of a raid. Raid starts on the 11th. The new feature is supposed to be added on the 16th. 4 day raid plus 1 day to redeem prizes.

    I'm kind of bummed that the triton and sea scorpion are not being retro'ed, but oh well. My question is for the FAT, How long will we have to build the fleet? And, Will it still have to be repaired in the normal ways?

    Sorry but these questions have to be asked, as i don't trust kixeye with assumptions
    It's still being worked on so this info is sparse at best. But the idea is that the first fleet construction will be free and refits will be free if the ship is at full health. This fleet won't take up room in your Dock and, likewise, no fleets from your Dock can be used in the tourney. So it'd be a purely Arena-only fleet.


    I saw some players very excited about this toybox. hmm, why?
    this is how I see the things:
    a toybox.. with some hulls, can be all, who cares, lot of weapons, you can build for free your dream fleet, get your revenge for how much those coiners make you suffer in the past... this is the f heaven!!!

    ... but wait. new hulls and weaps will come next month.. that will make your hull looking pathetic, with no chance at win... and this fleet is an arena designated fleet, that you can use it just in arena, that mean you can`t build it in your shipyard because is in a f toybox. you will have to coin it every f month.
    enjoy!

    i think doomrooster confused them when he said there is a new threat in the may works in  progress  ...i think the threat doomrooster meant is the nexus

    Was hoping to hear something epic, and that kixeye.com accounts can get officers too.

    Guess I'll check back in July, the small changes do sound positive though, so that's good.

    For this months F.A.T My suggestion is that the one day repair token gets split into two ( 12 hour tokens ) I won the one day repair token and I have no fleets that are a day to repair so a good chunk of that token gets wasted. If it was two ( 12 hour tokens ) it would be perfect for me and give me more incentive to participate in Junes F.A.T

    *Saw June event was called Abyss*

    Oh crap, it's Reavers AGAIN, isn't it....

    *Reads a bit further, sees it is in fact Reavers*

    *cries in a corner*

    Seriously, wasn't it said that the APRIL raid would be the last Reaver raid? I mean, it is what it is, I'll still do it (no coin, but I'll do it), but I think everyone's pretty sick of them at this point. This is the sixth Reaver raid straight.

    On the bright side, I can't remember a format that's lasted longer than six, so here's hoping that at least July is back to Dracs.
    Yeah I would say Dracs aren't coming back anytime soon, mostly because they don't seem to bring in as many coins as the Reavers do and lets face it, if something is making a lot of money then kixeye is definitely going to keep it for as long as possible.

    Retrofit pack 19: *shrug* no comment on it, except it's about **** time cryos went into the retro-lab.

    Although I will never be pleased with a retrofit announcement until the corvette, destroyer, destroyer X, LC and LCX get their retrofits.

    Specialist pack: Dammit! Kixeye added in the Thresher to throw out my "predictions" by 1 *shakes fist* :trollface:

    Let it Burn: It is what it is

    Abyss: Probably aptly named.

    "We've added tokens to the FMs as alternate prizes and to the FAT. They will most likely be added to the upcoming event as well (read as very likely)."

    Tokens in the raid? That should be interesting to watch....

    FM: Lol at "firebat" drones, I love it when random words get squashed together to make new ones. I'll also be extremely surprised if the build time for these new drones take less than 2 weeks to fit onto a hull.

    *But* for the sake of being positive, it's nice to see the slow down of junk being pushed into the FM. Hopefully this is a start to cutting down the prize pool.

    Reaver removal: Time limited campaigns for tokens is just wrong, tokens should be available in regular content, especially the ship build tokens, the ones which players need most above all else, not shoved into time pressured content like those campaigns that are designed around getting coins from players without "the right fleets"

    June FAT: The jury's out on this one, in theory it sounds like a step in the right direction but it all depends on how this "toy box" works and if everyone gets the same toy box, if the equipment in the toy box is differentiated on base level or some other poor criteria I can see it actually making the issues worse and not better.

    But as I said - that's a wait and see then watch the fallout if it all goes belly-up.

    The only way June fat is going to be in the right direction is when they prevent level 90+ players from being able compete in the lower levels and against lower players..

    Thank you for answering, that was better than my asking about the tokens and why they are 4 different classes.

    Now to the rest of the WIP

    Probably won't do next months FAT, I'm sure we'll have to repair what we built and be limited to just that fleet.

    Relocate to BM/Alliance, this has been a long time coming, thanks.

    Retro's on newer weapons, meh. I'm working SCX and arbalast right now, probably won't even bother me anyways.

    New drone, Cool, but i never built them so whatever.

    I was really hoping for the triton to finally get an R10, and possibly the sea scorpion to get remote targeting like the UI fleet ones. Oh well, hopefully next month  

    New reaver raid, probably a skip raid for me. If the same as last month, I had all in sector store, ramped up difficulty, general feeling in not accomplishing anything, then i'll skip it. Unless the Hull/weapon is a game breaker, no need in playing it. I got enough hulls and weapons, to build right now to skip 7 raids, starting now. I know i'm not relevant, not coining so don't matter in kixeye's eye. So no need, in trying to catch up.

    I'm more interested in the relocate, than anything else, I can actually use that

    Perhaps, then again if they all have the same tech to play from it might be a more level playing field, hence me saying it's very highly dependent on the content of these "toy boxes" everyone will get

    SO ...  with relocate to BM as way to consolidate players might we see some reduction in world size or world sector number?

    bottom line they dont care about fixing build/repair times(unless you are a whale or hacker) and instead of fixing all the new features that dont work they are going to continue ta add more new features that arent going to work.

    Reaver raids are stupid expensive therefor more money for kixeye.

    yes thats why we havent moved on yet, they are probably tweaking another factions ships to be twice as fast as reavers with twice as long of range
