    Since toy box thing for June FAT still in works, I want to give a suggestion 

    Most of us play in arena to rank our ships. With this new idea, if we cant use our own ships in arena, we cant rank our ships. Can you please find a way to save the vxp from the battles in FAT and apply that vxp to the ships we have in our dock or something like that? Please....

    Sorry for the confusion errybody. 

    To clarify: There will be no new FM content until the week after the event.

    I'd talked about some possible changes to the FM structure altogether. But we want to see how reducing content quantity and moving the release date to after the events works to help people catch up, since that has been a long-standing issue in the community. 

    Hope that clears things up.

    You mean you want repair specialists for specs? coz specs are already in retro lab.

    no new content is not an issue but will there be rotation of existing tech this week?

    the reason i am asking is because i have everything in T4 as of last week but desperately need stuff that has been recently rotated out..

    Why do cryo lauchers get their own category in retro lab? They should be in with lauchers
    Because Impulse Launchers and Cryo Launchers, while similar, have different shockwave effects. 
    as much as they have diffrent affects for thier shockwaves, both launchers have the exact same retro specs to increase, this realy has nothing to do with thier shockwave effects, so why have them seperate other than trying to get more uranium out of most players?  mind you i never planned on retroing my launchers since the retro option came out for them, never seemed like it would be worth the time and pain of doing.. wich now seems i was right all along :3, too bad for you suckers who actualy retroed it lol

    Why is there no repair specialist for the Kodiak Hull? (and for that matter the Savage Kodiak)

    You have limited hulls from the Arena Tournament, you have the two top prizes from a month ago, but you have still not added the Kodiak, and if we are adding ships that are special hulls, where is the Proto Mastodon? 
    Level 119

    I don't hit bases too often (not worth the cost)
    Been playing a long time. 
    Generally in sector 210...wait 24...nope..45...

    The FAT begins June 25th and features a whole new user experience! Players who enter the Forsaken Arena Tournament will have a “toy box” filled with various hulls and components to pick and choose from in order to construct their Arena fleets. This is a whole new way to engage in the Arena and I’m very excited to see how this addresses long-standing concerns regarding previous FATs. I will post a detailed briefing of this new format as we get closer to the release date.

    Dumb was last month, Dumber is this month.  Just killing this game and everything that was fun or decent way to have some fun, arena brought the fun back to me.  Now that's gone.  I get to play with boats I don't have built, pretend their mine for a weekend, and get nothing but lost coin or uranium out of it along with maybe a prize or so.  How the heck is this better.  Let me grind my VXP or use my own strats with what I have built to win some matches.  I played with my toys and pulled off 65 wins in arena, which was a personal best for me.  Now that's gone from me, the creativity which I didn't hack or coin, but built out over time and made it work.

    How much longer do we have to wait to be rid of these **** reavers I have pretty much stopped playing raids until after they are gone.  I don't care if we go back to fighting dracs or just having no raid until you guys come up with some originality PLEASE.  I have said it many times how bout just taking 2 months off of raids and get something worked out that looks real good and then start up on a raid.  During that off time just have the FM going.

    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?
    Spot on.  People have been developing their Arena fleets for some time.  The best ones are mostly highly specialised designs that aren't good 4 anything else.  My Wrath is a prime example, spent over 3mths to build, rank then refit it.  Just finished it in time for the last FAT, which they chose to debauch with no Uran reimbursement.
    Will be interesting to see how they run the ToyBox...

    would of liked to have seen the time penalty on replacing items during refits gone or drastically refits. base specials too. Guess that will never happen eh?

    Could the toybox be a precursor to the ability to store and refit modules, likely with 1/4 build time or something (combined with the 25% removal rate, for a half price refit if you have already built the module)?

    That would be cool.

    Or better, refitting (both removal and reattachment) happens in the drydock. I'd go for this, even if it didn't allow new fittings.

    Doom. Why hasn't the v2c been slapped into the repair specialist yet or the frostburn? Seriously!?! It was voted third when we had a "choice". Mind you it's been well over a MONTH since the last weak set was released and this sparingly populated dump is uggghhhhhh

    Yes Doom how does the stalker and predator get VXP and not the frostburn or V2C or Nighthawks is this some really late april fools joke you guys had planned,come on you guys have to be real with us, players stopped using those ships centuries ago, and boats like the juggx we been using long cant get no VXP.
    Well geeze, i'm 39 and use preds.  thanks for the love.

    Were is the issues of repair and build time?
    Were is word on improvements to token offerings?
    Were is the word on FM changes?
    Nothing on a possible new faction (was told would be may jun and nothing not even a hint of any yet)
    No new ship retro's for dozens of hulls that are extremely old and need help.

    But on the up side thanks for saving me 2 months of ship building for an arena fleet.

    Repair times and build times are being addressed with tokens and with some lowering of initial build times, as we've seen with recent prizes. It's a small step, but a step. 

    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). As far as increasing capacity? That probably won't happen for a while (if ever), so be sure to use your tokens when you have them in order to get more!

    FM changes are still in the works. I think we're aiming for July. We're going to see how reducing the total amount of new FM content to 2 per release and changing the cycle to after events and see if this helps players get caught up. Once we know how these changes have affect the FMs, we can move forward. 

    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.

    re: Ship retros. Yep, and we'll get to them eventually. 

    Glad to hear you like the idea of the new FAT format!

    Ship repair tokens in FAT=unfair

    New Forsaken Mission Content
    Starting this month, we are extending the FM an extra week so that FMs will start after events rather than a week before. New content includes the Firebat Drone Module I - III and the Permacrete Reinforcements. Tokens are still available as “fallback” prizes if all other prizes have already been earned. New FM content will be released June 17th.       Please clarify this statement.  Does the first FM  for June begin on June 17 after the Raid has ended?  In short, no FM for the week of June 3rd...?

    Stop resetting the **** known cheaters...that would be progress. When you get hit by a player whose arbalests outrange **** enforcers, and you see it's a level 64, with a 2 million ID, you know Kixeye are basically condoning that ****. No, I would not recommend this game to a friend. It's going downhill too fast and reeks of a last minute money grab before we finally log in to an "Out of Business; TY for your support" message.

    And that's exactly what they are doing, and sometimes there allowing them to keep everything they have as long as the show them how they are compiling the .swf file i think this is bull. It cost me more to keep these idiots out of my base and from attacking my fleets or even keeping my fleets sailing, something has to be done and Kixeye is the one letting this happen. I know of 4 bases right now that i watched go from level 1 to 80 in 4 days and completed all the campaigns with instant repairs all the way to the Proto-Mastadon and they knew i was watching i reported all 4 people there bases had a 4 day bubble on them and now they are playing again with all the hulls they won and hacked how does someone from level 1 get phantom nighthawk's, theirs only one way seeing how they have not been offered since these bases showed up.

    maybe now i can actually play during the FAT. the fleets i have built just arent good enough to fight in it with the competition. cant wait to see what ships we can choose from in the selection. my one question, are limited hulls going to be options to build for the FAT?
