    What about fixing the damage buff to legacy NPC weapons? Or is the armor reduction the actual fix? I'd rather Kixeye fix the weapons to not do the damage, so my ships can do the same amount of targets they were able to before.

    how about Kixeye quit "LOOKING IN TO" or "WORKING ON' and for once just do. I am sick of hearing about the labor pains, i want to just see the baby.

    Enough with the mega hull weapons, I want to see base weapons that stand up, out range, and for once really protect are bases, I liked the good old days when fleets could not get in, any more the same day or within a week we get skulled fleets walking right in as if we forgot to deploy a guard or load the turrets with shells, so how about you give use good base turrets for awhile.

    Does anyone know if the scattergun turret will stay in the FM as an award? It is hard to get the turrets if you are always getting more thrown into the elite tier. They already have a new turret so I assume that I will get screwed out of the last two turrets. They make the turrets the last thing you can get before tokens so unless you have everything, you will never get them.

    Looking at the changes from the release. Two words to Kixeye. "Shard Off"
    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 hope the new FM content you mentioned is bought into the fm after the raid and not this week - that would really P me off.

    Overall it looks good - looking forward to base planner and alliance changes.  Also looking forward to the stats for the coldsnap turret - will it be another Drac Scattergun or a Dead Eye Ballista of a turret......
    Yes, FM content drops after the raid. 
    if you drop 4 elite prizes, are are forcing players to do the FM at least twice in one week in the next cycle between raids, what happened to its an option doing the FM twice in a week?
    It's still an option.  You can do it once a week but you'll miss out on the ship build tokens.
    With 4 new prizes after every raid, you have to do the fm twice a week for two weeks, leaving you one week of tokens and then  the raid  hits and you get another another 4 new items drop. Why was it raised from 3 items pretty simple to make getting tokens harder plain and simple.

    Thank you Kixeye for completely screwing up my guard fleet placement. After just viewing base planner only 1 of my ships is in the correct location! Do you have any idea how long it takes to get position and patrol ranges just right!!!!!

    WELL I FOR ONE AM NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR SO CALLED 'REBALANCING' OF THE LEVEL 60 ARMADAS. I USED TO HIT THEM AND GET ABOUT AN HOURS WORTH OF DAMAGE AND THAT GAVE ME THE TOOLS TO BE ABLE TO PREP THEM FOR PEOPLE WHO COULDN'T TAKE THEM OUT NO YOU HAVE TOTALLY WRECKED IT. THANKS ALOT.

    I'll second this comment...mine was totally f***** up also, I'm at work and can't fix it on my phone easily...luckily I have 13 hr bubble left.

    I would have been extremely pissed if I came home and found I was sub prepped due to this nonsense.

    Meep!

    Typical Kixeye. They act like they're cleaning up their image but in the end it's still all about the money grab.

    Armada rebalance ??? to benefit who? It was nice to see yellow threat coming easier to my sector (small), with the 100 elites making it possible, but now a 1 hour repair on a 60 costs me 5 hr and paid out less uranium. Major " FAIL "

    i used to be able to hit 6-8 lvl 60 armadas before i had to repair - now i hit 2 and have over 9 hrs of repair-so tired of this kind of stupid sheet you guys do - what happened to the guys you used to have running this game that actually knew how to make the game fair and fun for all? if you let them go you really need to hire them back as this game is really going down the toilet

    I generally don't post in these, but this is terrible. You tell us to use Tigersharks for the Armadas, and you can't even get in range to use them. You tell us that they're being rebalanced to make them more accurate for their level, and yet, you balance them UP instead of down?

    You people couldn't find your way out of a paper bag. It's truly sad that a 5 yr old could see whats wrong with this game and you morons cant.

    I guess, the x-mas layoff was a desaster for a lot of KIXEYE employees, so the leftover employees now have "the right spirit" yet to make everything more difficulty and harder...but thats an double-edged sword and they will probably cut their desperate smile from their faces...

    60s were too easy for the payout. far easier than dredges were even for double the U.

    This may assist - its time to go back to old school.

    I love the changes coming. reduction in repairs is always welcome and FM prizes seem to be tailored to base deff.  It will help against those new carriers and make them obsolete quickly.  Great job!

    You know, to be fair, the game should not be about doing things with little to no damage.  That takes away the challenge.

    Of course, we all want to do things with little to no damage, because repair times are still out of whack, but if nothing else kixeye appears to be making changes there.

    Meh, not too exciting. Further repair reductions will be nice. Kix needs to look further into build/refit times. That is the biggest draw back for me, repair times are better now than they were.

    kixeye will never do much with build times or repair times as long peeps willing to pay for them
