Why is there so little VXP awarded for Drac Bases?
I get more VXP from 2 x 51 Cargoes than an entire Drac Base!!!!

    Other than the P/N, the fleet in there doesn't pay out much in vxp and the buildings pay nothing.

    It's the same with the new lvl85 fm targets you kill so much,end up with a long repair job and get barely any vxp for your flt from it.I guess only hitting hundred's of salv's or the once a month URF's is the only real way to gain decent vxp. Even hitting other players base's dont payout vxp right only pointless medals and alli points lol

    Because you are capped at earning 20 vxp per ship per battle.

    You can earn 10 vxp for damage dealt to enemy ships (buildings do not count)
    You can earn 10 vxp for damage received from enemies.

    Drac bases have tons of ships, so it is easy to achieve the 10 vxp per ship for the battle.

    EDIT: How VXP is calculated: https://helpcenter.kixeye.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751637-How-is-VXP-calculated-

    I think the point he is trying to make is not how is it calculated but why is it capped at so little? If Kixeye removed the cap then it would take a significant amount of grind out of the game and make it more fun to play.

    Only the urf do not have the cap that templar pointed out. Everything else has the same cap for vxp. It's stupid but until kix thinks about changing it it is what it is.

    Yeah I can already see a looming issue for my ranking fleets with the fusion cruiser I just built. It one shot kills a 51 salv with just a single ship. I'm gunna have to rank them almost solo to get anywhere.

    VXP is long over due for a "refit". KIX also needs to make it where we get VXP from the buildings we destroy, or at least all the weapons turrets. If it is shooting at us and we kill it then we should get "paid' for it.
    The irony here is overwhelming.
