    No one ever said anywhere that June was the last Reaver raid, in fact most expected them to be here until at least August.

    Julys are NOT hull store events. That only happened once in 2013, ever since then hull stores have been April, August and December.

    As for your final comment, yes, I agree wholeheartedly. It's far more fun and more engaging, great fun indeed.

    so since i cant do high lvl campaign i'll have to do 10,000 low lvl ones cause i'll only get 10 pts *sigh* the raids suck.
    Kixeye have you forgotten some people dont like to coop with others.
    Then, you are in luck you will be able to do the Recon campaign or Strike Campaign :) You do not have to coop with anyone to get access to the content that suits your skill level.

    See how awesome that is?
    awesome indeed except for the first sentence where i mention kix will probably only give 10 pts for it
    10 is better than 0, and it is an option that people wanted, so they are going to give it.

    I doubt it will be that low, unless you are a 70+ trying to do the recon, then well you are just sad doing something so low at that level.

    My concern is that with this, and caving into the less skilled players, they will make the Siege and the Elite that much harder to try and squeeze coin out of those of us that figured out a way to do them for a decent price, or free. As usual those that can play the game are going to be punished by the crowd that is better suited to play candy crush.
  • I like the idea of this, however 3 months of reavers will still be a kick. It mentions that for you to get full bonuses, all forsaken ships must leave. Therefor you have to wait, and basically take damage from the Reaver weps.

    Guess my question is, have they gotten rid of sector points/store? If so I would be very happy.

    Only if you want that dumb rogue crew. Just do the campaigns.

    There isn't really a lot of information here to go on. Hopefully there is more information released in the near future.

    With all the campaigns open to everyone, I can see the lower levels suffering.  The higher levels helped the lower levels in past raids because the lower level campaigns were easier points.  Now that the higher levels can do whatever campaign they want, they'll be less inclined to help the lower levels.

    Doom,  Based on the past issue of won crews not being assigned during the FAT due to limits yadda yadda. Are we to assume that if we win one of the rouge crews it will be awarded regardless if we have 15 crews already?   Kind of like the campaign crews that don't follow the max 10 crew limit?

    Hmm. Notice in the picture showing the crew progress meter that the icon below it in yellow looks like a proto-nem..

    Delighted that all campaigns are available to all levels.  Nearing level 60 now and was concerned that I'd not be able to partake fully in the raid once I levelled up. I don't mind grinding it out on Strike for something decent even if it's less points and takes longer. I suspect that my fleets aren't strong enough yet to survive Siege.  So thanks for that Kix!  :)

    If we have to rescue forsakens just for some crews then I'm afraid a lot of forsakens will die in my raid XD

    Yes, they will be added, effectively overfilling. That was an oversight for the FAT...

    Kixeye better get their crap together and fast because WoWS is now in open beta and it's a hell of a lot more fun than BP.
    What I find funny is that so many people continue to threaten Kixeye with this new game that is still in Beta. Yes-it is FREE for now-but seriously-do you REALLY think it will remain free after Beta? Lol. Instead of wasting everyone's time with threats to quit and go to WoW-just go. Really.

    WoT had the premium golden bullets, WoWs will also have something similar (not to mention crew reskilling and many other stuff only available via payment) .... so that place is also not evergreen... yeah maybe graphically it will be more up to XXIst century... and waaay different ... and by the way many people's VGA cards just will not be enough for WoWs... but BP works just fine :)

    And no, not each summer was there a hull raid.. just each second summer... just check back on the wiki.

    Yes there are problems that I also experience but kixeye is waaay among the best ones in the non real 3d mm games, for me it still seems to be fun playing even with the persistent problems at hand.

    LOL yes it may be in beta, but you miss the fact yes you can pay like Battle pirates but what you dont have is down time e.g base and fleet repairs, what you do have is lots of fun.........

    Will there be a point reduction for the higher level player if the higher level player coops into a lower level player's campaign?

    The lower levels can also do whatever campaign they want though, and nobody should be struggling in Recon.
    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...

    What are the preliminary penalties for doing strike mission if you're at siege level?  I know this probably isn't set in stone yet.

    considering that world of tanks and world of warplanes are 100% free to play and they are all made by wargaming, yes it will remain FREE after beta. yes you can purchase premium time and premium ships BUT unlike battle pirates you dont HAVE to spend money to keep up and be competitive. and i dont see it as "wasting" people's time i see it as players trying to open kixeye's eyes to the loss of interest/fun and hope they pick up on it and start listening to the players instead of the whales.

    Now we will see who truly likes helping and who did it for easier ptn or for ptn at all. MAny player only did it  because it was the only way to get ptns.

    Just to add to this. What I see is the fact that BP is wanting the higher level's to help the lower level's cool this is nice,But with that said they'er looking for more coin from all player's not just the higher level's but from all player's. They'er taking everything out on the player and not helping themselves with keeping anyone and yes this is my OP. Just wait and see if they like the feed back about the raid and I for one am going to try it and see. Just hope the raid is doable or my next OP will be different. 

    Have fun Pirate's.. Let the Game be Forever in your Favor!!
