    Really wanted the Bulkhead since I missed out when it was in FM. BUT Kix had other plans, thanks for the bait but I ain't falling for it. Guess I'll just hit what I can in campaigns and screw the bar.

    Dont turn right in the elite, your fleet will get jammed on the edge of the map between the reaver building. Your then stuck while apocalypse morts rain down. Goodbye your fleet.
    Nice work Kixeye !!!!!!!1

    I've never read the ramblings of the weepy before - dang, are all of the raid discussions this bleak?
    I have a hard time believing that we are dealing with a company that is brilliantly scamming us AND entirely incompetent. 

    This is a private company in a capitalist market trying to make money - your money. Give it to them, or don't - but don't fault them for trying.

    This is pretty much how they go, TRULUCENT2.

    As for the mods, they have no real power in-game, or in general. All they can do is lock/merge/delete threads and tell us that all of the problems we see are in our heads.

    During the first day this is what you get. Very occasional nuggets of wisdom floating away in the tears. 
    My advice to new players: "Delete the game from Facebook, change your email on Kixeye to [email protected] and scramble your password. then just turn around and forget this place even exists. You will be better off."

    I think this event might be worse than Forsaken Fury.

    The point payouts are bad, the targets are doing more damage, the variety of targets have been lowered, ect. The only upside to this raid is that the elite target looks a little easier.

    I have a tradition of making my first hit of any raid with "Old BBlue".  A fleets of Battle Barges with Thud 4 HB1 and engine 1. For the first time in over a year, I was able to hit a target and get points. It was only 246 points for recon 1, but it did give me a smile. So Kixeye, Thank you for that small thing. I'm still not coining anymore though. :smile:

    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
    enter from a different spot, I enter from about 5 oclock, and have not problem getting setup. I also started to take those that come at you out with a different fleet, then go back with subs and sub out the two big ones. A bit longer process, but much cheaper. looking at 30 min to 45 min so far for a 65 that way in repairs.

    Well worth the points

    So is elite really just worth 2.5m now even with bonus? Also is there a 30 minute timer on elite or 4hr like last time?

    Recently, I have been spending more in the game due to raids being easier and doable with tactics. Now Kixeye seems to be going 
    back to harder raids, so my spending goes back to zip outside raids.  Fair enough, it's your game.

    won't be coining this raid.. sorry kix. 
    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 briefing says there will be a 45 second cool down. I got a 30 minute cool down. Is this correct or a mistake?

    What exploit? You guys are full of ****. People figured out an easy way to do the raid and you squashed it. Why do you have to make this game completely devoid of startegy? Doomrooster? Care to comment or are you running away for the weekend again?

    They changed it to fix some sort of exploit, comments posted in briefing.

    What the hell, I, Level 72, just threw 1 V2C and 1 V2H fleets at first siege Target, also a Spadere DNX and an unamored SCX Fleet (still in raking process), now I stand there with over a day of repairs and get lousy 200k points, propably can't do the next target either.
    I tried strike and got 6 hours of repair on a half way ranked (5 Star badge) SiegeZ V2H fleet for a lousy 280k points.
    You are seriously joking. But what shot the bird from the roof was the recon campaign, 11min (little over 2 min per ship) repair is more then ok, I would even say its to low to be fun but the point payout is ridicolous. I get a freaking lousy 3k points. An Allimate does same campaign with level 39 and only Sea Wolfs, he nearly got the new launcher by now because he gets 150k. I understand that people get it way to easy if they can kill the recon campaign in that time with no damage for 150k points. But that gap is insane. So in 30 days I will get leveled by a level 39 with the new launcher and all I can answer is Hammerheads because I'm propably still repairing.

    I just though about cheating just to be reset to level 35 lol.

    Another thing that doesn't get in my head, 23s are rare, give 850 points but no damage, I could grind them all day, would only take 7000 for the launcher but I get 27k for a 43 which in turn gives roughly one hour on a slow atlas fleet and even less on an Interceptor fleet or even mcx (only damage came from retargeted missiles and my mcx got 70% instead of 30% on my atlasses).

    You're point system is in my throat and I'm puking it out again. I wanted to waste some coins and held myself an option to buy some more but this way nada, I'd rather quit the game because without the launcher and the arbalest (which I missed) game is useless. Or I start a new account on kongregate and get all my new toys with ease. Its ok if little players can catch up, but they get it for free while the old players either need to pay their complete loan just to catch up with the little guys ? thats insanely insane. Ridiculous. 150k for a level 39 for the same work that a level 72 gets 3k for. 50 times as much for just 30 levels difference.

    And I though super sonar is out of the game ? now superthermal or what ? My D2S-NB3-CP3-SS3-B-Torp R10 Cudas are seen from double (!) the firing range of their b torps. This Raid is just über-bullchyt

    sooooo my fleet that ran 2 to 3 recon campaigns before needing reps in previous raids, now floats dead in the water 3/5 in?
    following same usual tactics avoiding firetrails?

    Yeah, i guess nothing was done on the reaver damage output at all, i bet i suddenly just...got so much worse at this.Yeah, pretty sure thats it.
