    So we are going to have to sit under long range high splash damage until the forsaken ships leave the battlefield or we dont get points. This sounds like the best idea ever.

    Kixeye only gives us 7 days of scam tokens this raid, I drank to much rum so I'm gonna put my tin foil hat on. The tokens are a scam because it cost more then 48 coins to win a one day token. The tokens are a scam because ship build times have initially increased. Tokens are a scam because you use then and then they don't work << I think sombody designed them like that on purpose!!! Tokens are a scam to speed up a build just enough to make a person coin the rest of it. Tokens are a scam because you lose token time if the token is larger then your purchase!!! The tokens are a scam because Kixeye only gives us so few to win. Tokens are a scam during the raid you can only win one kind. Tokens are a scam because Kixeye wants players to get burnt out winning tokens so that when they go to do their raid they make alot more mistakes in battle. I think that is all I have to say, my tinfoil hat antenna is glowing and aimed at Kixeye saying their tokens are a scam. Back to my rum thank you for listening!!!!

    You still trolling? I got the full week for no coin at all last month and I'll be doing the same again this month. It's easy.

    Some people can't be bothered to strategize.

    I mean it's only a strategy game, right?
    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

    The ships dint have to escape for you to get points, they have to escape to count towards the crew.

    Not sure if this has been asked, but here goes. Since there will be no level 85s will the required sector points be adjusted down?

    Was not mentioned in the briefing, so I expect not. But I could be wrong.

    Reason I ask is looking at the sector points and comparing to last time there is a huge difference.


    Last time: 23 - 10, 25 - 15, 43 - 100, 45 - 150, 61 - 400, 65 - 600, 85 - 2500, 90 - 0

    This time: 23 -10, 43 - 100, 65 -  600, 90 - 0

    Big difference in point availability

    25, 45, 60, and 85's have been removed for the upcoming event (at least that is how I understand it) due to the current raid format. See here : https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/559411

    If the sector point is still set up the same way you are talking about a serious slog to get to the same level. And yes, I have read the briefing.

    I see..

    The players have asked for this feature (being able to hit all campaigns) and it is a sign that the game is failing..


    Gotcha. You are saying that the players are killing the game off with their demands.

    Looking forward to reading all the complaint threads during this raid, whilst sat in my caravan...

    Do you think maybe the moderators could take their time with the merging and removal of threads this month because i will be relying on 3G signal, instead of my wonderful wifi connection.

    So with the seeming loss of the level 85 target and the 2,500 sector points as well as the addition of players being able to hit all levels of campaign and thus making that the probable way to get raid points can we expect the sector points needed to be greatly reduced or are you expecting an unrealistic grind?

    It has been said over and over this past month or so...using last year as precedent (kix is following that same pattern so far this year), hull raids are currently April/August/December.

    If you look at the prize list, the Mastodon sits in T4, with no missiles in any other tier.

    Last raid you still had the D55Z, D51B, and I think Archilles, so at least it made sense, but this raid made zero sense.

    I am hoping that's a real mistake and we see... Enforcer instead :)

    Two questions here:

    1 - Do we have the breakdown of the different campaign bonuses and the penalty for doing lower one. ???  This should not be to hard to obtain !   
    2 - If i help a lower player i assume i have less point but is he penalized too or just the higher lvl?

    Thanks in advance for the answer

    There is no way to know that for sure.  NC is only 2mil this time around.  If you grind out strike, that is only 7.5 mil you need, about 10 run throughs...Definitely doable over 4 days for free.

    If the Campaigns haven't changed.  But they already said they have been changed so who knows?

    I doubt they have a list for next raid ready at this time.... even if they did they wouldn't tell us. Do your best to grind them both out in this raid, no way of telling what is coming in the next one. Add to that, kixeye has a habit of losing certain prints so that they are never offered again, the best advice is do your best to get what you can while it is available.

    While the campaigns do change, history does not.  Even through the changes the last several format, Strike has always been grindable to some degree or another (insta SW's can still be used; though some specific ships require a bit more umph to quickly defeat).

    Loco is correct.

    The ships will do damage as they escape helping you kill the target.  For each ship that does escape, it counts towards the crew.  Their damage does not add to your score.
