    We have all gone through it and it is part of the game balance.  If you focus on riots and collecting(drops suck) bp's.  In short time you will be able to compete in events.  Good Luck

    shadowreapxr not the best advice - really the advice should be ignore the events for now, because I have spent 6+ hours hunting both 25vsec and 35vsec and I have 12k loot

    Well from the time I started and the time I was able to get the top tier prize in a Monthly event.  I missed out on alot of monthly event hulls.  It was frustrating, but I got the best I could get.  Now I have every single item in the Event Store.  You will get there, it just takes time.  Well and alot of grinding. lol

    lol, yeah? the items come round quite often then, I suppose that's something at least. Although I am starting to see a few more 35 vsec spawning now - was 7 in the last round! I wonder if they changed it.......

    The first white wolf I can hit and kill 35vsec with free instant repair, if I couldn't kill lvl35 I wouldn't be bothered and wouldn't have an issue - but I can. sure Spiralvalve - but it's a little rubbish that I just have to sit around with no targets while most of the other players are completing the whole event in 2-4hours.

    I was there once and I completely feel your pain, If you find that you can defeat the 30-35 with instant repair then you have to sit and wait, then challenge yourself to hit the 40. I was hitting the 50s when this started because well because im not a great pilot :) but someone encouraged me to try higher level and you know what, I was able to kill the 60 with almost the same repair. Maybe try a higher level instead of waiting around. watch a few fights and look on you tube or the forums for some tips. I would bet if you started a forum post asking for some tips on how to use what you have for higher fleets people would be filling it with ideas for you.

    Getyaz you clearly don't have any experience of what I am talking about so your opinion really doesn't count on this issue.....

    As someone with an under 35 alt who has completed multiple events by killing well over 1000 planet 27s each event, I'd say I'm more than qualified to speculate on the quantity of sand in your nether regions.

    they used to do it worse is not an excuse for doing it now - just means they don't learn. Stand in front of someone and dangle a fifty pound note but say it's not for them it's for the "experienced people" and you don't really have a defence if that person gets angry and calls you a ****!

    Well I had a good experience last few weeks, got some great support from my alliance, was able to grab a few intro offers for coin, started prepping for the event a few days ago - worked hard to get a fleet ready for it..... ONLY to find there are not enough fleets to go around for lower level players!!!!!!!!!!! I was looking at a big grind to get some of the better prizes, I was willing to commit to working on it to reap the reward, BUT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH LVL35 VSEC FLEETS!!!!!!!!!!!! So then I find out it's a reoccurring problem! If this was unexpected I would be dissapointed, but it's not. yesterday I was planning on buying more coin due to the offer in the store to make sure I could take advantage of getting the event prizes but not anymore.  Literally the idea of working hard or even buying any more coin is completely gone because it's pretty clear events are run for the higher level players only.......
    Sounds like you are in a sector filled with players that are willing to help.  So full that all the planets are full and sector space is filled with fleets smashing AI fleets.  Which is why you are not being helped, you are being controlled.  So when the farmers alliance is put to task, its hard making the quota that all your fellow players have to fill.

    I am not complaining about that - please read my posts before replying....... I am only complaining that the fleets I can grind/farm do not spawn much.

    Yes, @Dagganon you are whining....perhaps we should go back to wormhole events?? Imagine the spawn rate now...but from only 4 wormholes instead of 25 planets... Now THAT is a hard event...and I did...what....a dozen or so of them?

    hey I felt cheated and angry and kixeye lost money because of it - I think I am doing them and everyone else a favour by voicing my complaint, as so many players must have had to do to stop those horrendous sounding wormholes.

    As with most events, the first day or two is the worst. It will get better once more and more players finish the event and stop hunting, then you should see more free spawns.

    That's simply not true, *because you need the Ragnarok*

    Yet the event that you can get the ragnarok is *still the same thing*

    Already got both ships and most other prizes and I don't have Ragnaroc or Valhalla.
    Used the Midgard for agility field. Got the Midgard by farming VSEC 37's with Hydra Rancs which anyone can build.

    yep best advice ever from spiralvalve, thank you! I sometimes have to repair for 10mins or so but the points given make up for it! I've gathered 18k in the last 40mins!

    i had the same issue when the event first started i was hitting 35's and 40's now im just hitting 40's sure there is a bit more rep time but the 3.3k loot you get and how well they fill the threat gauge is alot better then sitting and waiting to try and get a hold of 35's one more piece of advice stay closet to the planets and be quick to right click on the flt that you wanna hit

    Main events have always been for end gamers ....the riots are for new players

    There wont be any more riots after january this is how the events will work from now on.

    Dagganon good luck mate. I have no problem doing events, but I remember being in your position, prepared to grind but no smaller fleets. You have to laugh at end game players with the usual cliché stop crying etc, they just say that about anyone with an issue, so just ignore them Bro. Good luck with the rest of your event.

    Easiest event ever. Kix is giving this main event away easier than any riot. Kinda pathetic really.

    Incorrect, after January i believe that the cycle will revert back to how is was before December with one event and one riot per month, but with the new assortment of ships and tech seen in December.

    But yes you are right about the events though, the store is the new format.

    They said that the riots would end because the new format introduces the old tech as well as the new. Sorry. The whole point of the new format is to do away with the riots. Thats is why they are running them all in january one last time.

    @CM LXC is what they say true that riots are ending? I thought i read somewhere in one of the official posts that riots were staying.  So if they are staying im going to assume that those items will never be available thru the event store correct? or are riots going away to be replaced with something else?  Or are riots gonna change too?   (sorry i hijacked the thread Now back on topic)  Like someone said to be patient. it unfortunally took me 5 months before i was able to get top prize in an event. and even then its hard.  Now that may be long compared to others but i suck at piloting so i was doing auto fleets and experimenting with those.  Like this event. i have a auto fleet that does great on 35s. 6 min rep broken down is free insta rep.  now on 40s i was getting 13-26 min reps that couldnt be broken down.  But with 3 move orders at the start of the battle me and a clan mate found that this setup works wonders on the 40's as well.  its just taken me 5 months of time and patience to get this far to be able to really participate in the main events.  the riots i never had an issue with.  But just keep at it. build better ships. research better tech. collect those pain in the behind blueprints from vega and vsec and make your fleets slowly stronger with tech and new and better strats.  Good luck and keep at it.
    I'm having trouble with the radar, sir.
