Worked very well in the raid. Seeing is believing for many.
That's because deflection bypass was not yet introduced into the game. It was voiced many times that this would not be the case for long.

Everyone who can read knew this was a base hull. The fact that kixeye allowed you to do the raid, dubs, mines, and armadas for over 2 weeks for next to free should have been a great bonus for you, but you all knew it was going to be a baser. So, added bypass, no more free ride for all your chores. So in light that it was advertised over and over that this was a baser and would not work in event chores after the added bypass, and it's not a nerd, it got better. So if you still think they "changed" the hull and are going to cry about it in another 50 threads everyday, please don't. You got more than you paid for in that hull with 2 weeks to basically reap the system with it. Well suck it up now, free crap over, tired of the whiny posts how cheated you are, shut up and play or leave, just STF up about it
do you think Kixeye has learned their lesson yet about releasing hulls/tech that isnt ready to be released? the Revenge hull should have not been released until AFTER the deflection bypass was in the game...then they could have tested it properly and not had to go and "modify" the stat's of it after the fact
I got the revenge, coined, based on the results I saw from others actually playing the game. The revenge worked great vs the targets I was having problems with. Those targets were pve. Now it doesn't. We were warned there were going to be changes. We weren't warned, it would not function worth a **** against pve. What reasonable person would expect that? No one. What company turns out a product, THEN makes it's only useful in 10% of the options it had before they changed it? One that disrespects the very people keeping them in business. Here, pay to play our game. No, you have to play it OUR way, because only we know what is fun to do. And its fun for you to pay 400 dollars to get a week's worth of use out of the game. Because we're about fleecing people, not value. Because we see you as the golden sheep, not clients. Working as intended, is a spineless cop-out. A little difference is a challenge. 180 difference is kicking a dead horse and expecting it to race for you. Not happening.

Okay, so I see everyone saying the Revenge is now useless. I'd beg to disagree. I think it's overpowered beyond belief. My base which hasn't even been 50% in about a year now was just mowed down by a few unranked Revenges after the update. They are now completely immune to harrier missiles and Railgun 110s, and while I can't confirm the unreactive part of the hull got a boost, I can say my enforcer loaded full up with antipodes and both supercharger specials didn't do more than 10% damage to 1 hull (and no booms). In fact, my six dead-eye executors that slowly chunked the hull before the update now didn't do more than scratch (if that). The only part of my base that did any damage to the updated hull was my Drac Scattergun Turret with the extra damage/multishot special. And that's limited, so it's not like I can spam it on all my turret platforms. Seriously, how are we supposed to defend against this hull? Maybe cobra tigers if I were at my base to drive, but otherwise it seems launchers now barely do anything, and there's no way an HC's scatterguns will ever get in range of the hull in a base attack setting (as well as if you defend against revenges with revenges you will lose as they have the bloodthrist that will be charged and can clump and you won't have those advantages on auto). Honestly are we supposed to wait and hope this next raid brings a base defense hull? It seems wildly unfair to make the Revenge completely immune to harrier missiles as well as blades. Is there any insight into stopping these updated monstrosities from ravaging our bases? Or are we stooping to "They 100% me, now I take my revenges over and 100% them."
The Revenge got changed, some things nerfed some things buffed.I didn't take the Revenge when I read its stated purpose, as I rarely hit bases, I was quite annoyed with myself when I read about all of the other uses it was being put to.Now its just been altered to what its stated purpose was originally. Why? because kix realized that they had once again fcked up and released a hull that would clean up pretty much anything, and that my friend will cost them lots of lovely money.Its just another example of the devs not understanding their own game.

There seems to be two different conversations happening in this thread.The first conversation is about people crying the hull has been nerfed in PvE. All I can say to that is that Kixeye made it quite clear before the last raid what their intentions were and when the game would change to compensate the massive damage deflection in this hull with deflection bypass in PvE. If some people missed that then that is their fault as it was explained not only in forums but also on many group pages. They told us to enjoy the PvE gain from this hull while we could and many did just that.The second is about the changes made to the hull and what we are now seeing in PvP base attacks. Base hitting is now back with a vengeance. Unless players have spent a fortune refitting base guards and building and equipping level 7 turrets then they are now a farm. They may very well be a farm for many more months. I expect we'll see a lot more 'square bases' and pulled guards as a result or even more players simply leaving the game. This is a cycle and it looks like Kixeye are sticking to this cycle.I would be more confident in the new direction of the game if we did not have such wild swings in the base defence and attack balance. The changes may make sense when explained but the sheer pace of change and current content overload is not doing players any favours.For what it is worth my advice to Kixeye is to slow down. My advice to players is to get used to it, nothing has really changed or will change, this is just how they generate excessive spending by these sudden swings. You either live with that or leave.
Dear Customer,Thank you paying to speed up the build time on the Revenge hull/hulls. Kixeye told everyone long before anyone had this hull it was for hitting other players base and NOT environment targets. Kixeye also told you that any benefit this hull would have on environment would be short lived. You choose to use this hull in a way it wasn't meant to be used. The huge negative defense stats should have given you the clue. While Kixeye understands you aren't happy with the hull being modified to do its intended job it's not the company's fault you didn't listen to or read the many warnings. Enjoy your Revenge KixeyeP.S. I made this up
Half the community says it sucks. Half say its op.
Not as op as some of the hulls of the past but not as terrible as when it was released now.
