    FFS released the ships and left a building which they destroyed on their way to the edge of the map! So watch out for that one.

    I like how everyone is an expert on telling kixeye how to make money.  Obviously they know what they are doing or people would not be playing and spending money.

    Kixeye has messed up a lot in terms of making money. There are countless times they change something because of our feed back. Give it a day and you will see. Although in regards to the sector store, grim is a outdated ship. So me personally I have no interest in the store let alone hitting map targets

    Map Targets:   Going to request 400 players not to hit them in sector,   just get points for the 2 new toys.

    I'm pissed,  but 10K Sector Bar Points per hr  and goal +900K   to open the 90's   IMO  not worth it.

    Best and Good Luck

    Doomrooster I see few problems with raid .. Please confirm they are as design.
    1. Level 3 ,4 , 5 Of Siege finishes before all ships and/or Targets are killed ..
    2. You get no bonus for rescue once Level is finishing early.
    I haven't seen any problems for the first part, however, as stated in the Event brief, if you defeat the target before the Forsaken Missions leave the battle map, you will not earn the rescue points. That is intended, so be sure to hold off on defeating the target until the Forsaken ships leave the map. 

    The Forsaken ships are pathed to leave to a specific point over time.


    I just did Strike for fun, and on the last level, I had 3 turrets, and all the buildings around the "Shroud" building left, when the level completed on me. I still had 1/4 health of the level left.
    If you kill all the ships it completes the target, I did that on a siege and the target ended, had a few buildings left to kill and did not free the ships.

    Did not get any rescue points yet, although someone said they got some after they did part 5 and earned 36 pts.

    What is going on in 65's, ships jumping about the screen, freezing, staying on the water even after they've been killed, pretty messed up. Only happens in 65's.

    Quote "IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE: If you destroy all Reaver forces and defenses before the rescued ships leave the battle, they will not be counted as rescued. So be sure to hold off on finishing the target until the friendly ships can escape! You do not need to rescue the Forsaken fleets to successfully complete the target."

    so does this mean you have to blitz through the ships to release the forsaken ships before u can kill the reavers!!! Does anyone else see this as u taking tons of damage before you can even start to kill the reavers.. but u cant kill them 2 quickly because you wont get a  rescue point??????  


    Does anyone else see your fleets dying before you can even release the forsaken ships from there cages...  costing you loads in gold repairs....

    So far so good. don't like the point drop off, but I can auto recon for 50k points per camp... 
    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.

    Honestly, I figured out early on that the rogue crew was a trap. The proper way to use those rescue ships is this: fight along as normal, pop the bubble on 'em, and let them soak some damage for you. They'll usually high tail it out anyway, so you'll get some points out of them. Meanwhile, you're taking less damage and they're smacking things for you on the way.

    Exactly.  Let them die, who cares.  I still got like 50 or so saved.  The trick, go kill all you can for little or no damage around them and then let them hurt the stuff you couldnt get to.  BTW, my sector needs 1.5 mil.  We have 35K so far lol.

    whats happened to the L85 reavers ?
    got to get serious here people - 1.18 million and u want 65'**** all raid ?
    i give it 12 hrs of players hitting 65 for naff points and thats the end of their raid.
    give us the L85 so we can make a dent in sector points and encourage other players to continue to do their best in sector

    Aegis/Crusader fleet can do the 65 for me for about 90 to 105 minutes of dmg per 2. Subs can sub out most of the 65 no problem, big ones cannot hit you at all under water unless you get too close. Did 1 65 for no dmg with my subs, Took a long time though. 

    Siege just starting to see what that is like. At least with 65's you can grind on them with subs if you have them, or ballistic fleet with Aegis/Frosty.
    Didnt work for me.  Scout on me as soon as battle started.  Hawks, well built, no trouble prepping dredges out. Just couldnt outrun them

    i have not played a raid in yrs. they have began to be simply silly stupid. i decided to see what i can get with 105 coins. i now have all my fleets sunks and 800,000 points. this means to reach the 5,500,000 points just to get a weapon.it would cost me roughly 60 to 70 dollars. iv been in this game since beta. im a level 71. i am not able to attack any modern bases because i simply cannot afford these raids. yes.this game has become a waste of time unless you cheat or open your wallet.

    another failure of a raid, this raid is not even fun and damage vs points payout is a joke especially for the "recommended" Siege mission

    So to complete each tear in a campaign we just have to kill the ships???  I killed the fleet, and all weapons turrets, left the Icon (smoke generator ) building and all other buildings and this counts as a victory.... and the ships take way to long to leave the arena.... Good premise but badly executed

    Last 2 Raids,  we got 900K in 24hrs,     I just requested players not to hit Map Targets unless your autoing 23's

    I did the math with damage,   Great Job KE Management,  you lost income,  400 Active Players that coin hulls.

    I'm sure KE will be giving out pink gift cards to staff soon.

    So...why....in God's name would you make EVERY LEVEL of Strike Campaigns a base? And the complete overhaul on Elites? Obscene changes, the damage taken compared to last time is nuts.

    It's Thursday. Have you taken account of this in the BS ramblings.
    Folk still at work in some major countries.
    Weekend will be the busiest time.
    Raid hasn't even started yet in my sector.

    May your shipyards never be idle.

    How many players were banned last month? Keep the game clean.

    this time last 3 raids there were protos and Hell BPs dropping like hotcakes, not a single one yet... Our sector had over 100K sec points, now we have 25K...... when other countries start playing they will be doing campaigns too

    Just love the retarded concept of removing 75% of the sources for sector points but not adjusting the idiotic amounts required for sector unlocks.
    Doom the bs excuse of its the first for the format is just a pathetic attempt of waiving us Way. If campaigns aren't going to provide sector points the totals needed have to be reduced by the amount of available sources to gain the points. Your developers need to quit reading "Idiots guide on how to ruin a game".
    My cracked tooth is less painful then this format.

    Great Post,  Right to the Point, and very accurate.   
    Time to do campaigns,  get the toys and enjoy the weekend,  Screw the Map Targets.
