    I have to say that I am disappointed with styx and charon torps not making the cut.  I had hoped to pick them up this raid, but that will mean less chair time for me, so that turns out to be a positive thing.

    I love how Kix continues to put out hulls that destroy stacked fleets and yet maneuvering continues to attempt stack your fleet. Come on Kix give us some sort of formation tool.

    What are the maximums for the ltd weapons/specials/etc. Don't seem to be able to see that anywhere? I noticed on the prize list for these it is now saying maximums have not been changed.

    WHY can we only redeem 5 scatterguns...... This should atleast be 15 for those of us who have no way of getting them... if the max amount is still the same then it wont affect those who got them from the armada's in the first raid it will only help us that dont have any get enough to actually put on our ships PLEASE!!!

    there is no maximum ammount for limited techs as far we know... :D you can get 5 each type when they are available on limited tab on raids... it would be more helpfull if we could redeem them more on raids but kix wants to limit them this way... :D and it was players who whined limited tech of from armadas.... ( same as they whined chore on fm so kix lessened chore by scrappin TLCs (token crew  ura etc.. )) lol .. :D

    Lots of folks need the new scourge torpedos (Styx and Charon)... How about making some folks playing BP very happy and add them to the prizes. I got them already but I just keep seeing people say that it's bs that they got the new subs from the raid and nothing to go on them.  o:)

    kixlie modus operandi,.....

    1: release hull and weapon......
    2: wait a few months.........
    3: re-release hull but not weapon.......
    4: wait another few months......
    5: lol
    6: release new weapon and hull that makes the old one........... less desirable(?)
    7: re-release older weapon in raid or FM  
    Chicken Little?..... you insult and ignore your player base and wonder why there is hostility? SERIOUSLY?....
    KIXEYE lies, cheats and steals and wonders why people are leaving in droves?
    KIXEYE gears everything for the high level and heavy coiner (or cheating) players and wonder why your new player base is failing?
    KIXEYE changes things seemingly on a whim and tells players to "deal with it"?
    You ridicule anyone who voices their opinion in an effort to help SAVE this game...................

    I have to say that all this whining about please add this tech or please add this weapon drives me crazy. The fact is I need scatterguns too. When they were giving them away during the scourge raid i didn't see them as a big deal. I made a value judgement and now that i have seen them i need them so I pay the consequences for my poor judgement. I certainly am not going to cry to kixeye to somehow erase my poor decision. I can remember needing tech that I waited 9 months for waiting to appear in a raid. It never occured to me that my best strategy was to log onto a forum and whine about my lack of tech. Patience paid off and I finally got what I needed. I go into a raid looking for opportunities through the tech that is offered not using each raid to excuse my prior decisions.  
    Wish I could like this more than once.  Part of the strategy is what to get and what not to if your wallet isn't unlimited.

    According to the briefing, yes, that's the plan at the moment. That may change if they have issues, though.

    All raids, except hull raids (April, August, December) are 4 days. Hull raids are 6 days. This raid will be 4 days.
    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...

    I wonder why the new rail gun is even a prize at this raid?
    With assault deflection and a high ballistic ressist, they cannot possibly harm any of the newer ships at all?
    The damage pr. shoot is 610, so after an assaultdeflection of 500, you will only hit for 110 damage.
    Add ressist on around 80%, and your new shiney guns shoot for less than a thud 1 gun!

    Same. KIX plz add them so many players asking for this, we really need these torps.  Most top players have em, give us little guys a chance, i have tigers but no good torp for em... ill sink alot of players if i get em, imagine the coins they will use after that :D  just think of all the $$$$..

    Seriously Please consider adding it.

    i just wana see a prize list 
    Prize list is in the briefing 
    Once again Apoc morts what about Executioners???????????????? we have seen Apoc mort 4 times in the past raid since a year has passed but NOT once Executioners!!! AND I'M NOT REFFERING TO THE LIMINTED EXECUTIONER
    Apoch mortars are pretty crap now and useless against the rush and uber range fleets, i would also like to see more of the missles turrets offered again (at reasonable prices), but I dont think it will happen.
    you don't read so well try proof reading i said Apocs have been back in raids 4 times in the past yr and NOT once EXECUTIONERS ...not the limited ones the reg ones....before speak try reading!!!

    Surely the new gun wont run what is advertised though.  No doubt it will absolutely own, then be toned down in a month or so to reflect the actual stats on the print.
