    Some people been calling me a troll thus trying to get me forum warnings, time for me to clear this up so listen up all my people. a·hem a·hem I am not a forum troll, I am a battle pirates expert, an expert in fleet building, base defense, statistics and base hitting. All my comments on this thread are well thought out constructive expert opinions. Now back on topic raid is tomorrow thank you for listening.
    Un-hide your sector and after the raid I'll show you "expert".

    On-topic: We have entirely new campaigns this time right? That'll be interesting. Old Strike was easy (yes, yes, I know, "easy for you, you have good tech", it was doable with Sea Wolves, I could have done it even without good tech. So could you, if you tried. It's time consuming and res-negative (so not really efficient), but it was DOABLE, which is what really matters in the end. And it was efficient enough to make getting the new hull and weapon reasonable for those who did do it that way), but it was getting really stale for me. At the very least figuring out effective approaches to the new one should be refreshing. I might take a look at Recon as well, my group has a couple of people who don't enjoy Strike so much so I figured I'll see if I can help them plan it out.

    Rescuing-ship mechanic is interesting, but I think maybe a points bonus per escaped ship would be better than working toward a rogue crew, however stupidly strong the crew may be (25% to all resists plus Siege Battery plus Aegis on already-high-resist fleets anyone?). Still, it's an interesting twist, but I wonder how many people are really going to go out of their way to do it. As I said, the crew's strong, but personally, it's not strong enough for me to go out of my way to make sure the ships escape. I have to unshroud them to clear the target, but I'm not gonna wait for them to escape if it'd take longer for them to do that than it would for me to finish the target. I have a feeling at least a few others are going to do similar.
    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...

    True that. I used the ol' missile SW fleet during Perdition. Did recon 120 times in my lv30s to get my hands on prints for Kodiak and D55-Z. Among some other small stuff.

    It took a huge amount of seat time, but it was very doable. I could have even gotten the Omega if I wanted to keep going.

    Uhm  a simple line in briefing for when relocation will be enabled might prevent 1 or 2 threads asking when will it be re enabled. Normally its like 5 threads.

    They have switched from 2 per year to 3 per year.  The last three have been August 2014, December 2014, and April 2015.  I would expect the next one in August 2015.
    Launched: 5/17/2014  Current Level: 97

    Need a drydock so I can build all the hulls I got. And now the guard fleet is going to need a month of refit to allow for the new launcher.

    I like the escape mechanic, it's something new to consider and doesn't involve just taking massive amounts of damage.  :o

    Good cannon? If you mean arbalest, it was never a prize this month. Besides that, the only other cannons worth anything are the disruptors for slowing down. Bypass2/3 may be arguable as decent as well i guess. No other cannon is worth it tho.

    Besides, the new op weapon of the month is the antipode launcher. You get that and you will get along fine without a ballistics fleet.

    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
    Well i guess that was too much to ask or it's classified info ;)
