    ANNOUNCEMENT: We have extended the activity by one hour due to the delayed start. As this would overlap the Civil War, we are moving the Civil War to after Alien Mobilization. This should also allow a bit of a breather between Decimation and Mobilization.

    Meh who cares? All those events are void anyways...

    Awesome!  An event built exclusively for coining.  Well to be honest, they did warn us that going forward in Alien events building coining the tech would be the only way to get the best stuff.  And they are right....

    Nerf is needed for any non-coiner to play.  MEANING to get any of the blueprints from Harvesters dmg output must be reduced or we are screwed.  And considering the rotation of tech is not balanced at this point might never catch up.  The point is once you make an enemy ship and fleet please stick with it so that the rest of us can slowly catch up with the rest.  We are not asking for instant rewards, just a fair chance to play at near current levels.  This setup you introduced is not it.

    Please stop giving blueprints as Top alien drops.  Should be reusable tech only....thus limited quantity based on play.

    Just make Riots/Special Events have 100% legacy "classic" tech so players can just buy all missing stuff.  That way you get to still keep players from just res refilling at will untill they collect everything.  And dont put in core or pattern boxes...uncool.  Leave that for feature events with the new tech since those are not as helpful with reduced res exchange.  

    Oh and one last bit of my rant.  What the hell is up with "Unknown Hive Fleets lvl 40-55 (pts range 1000 - 5,000)"?  This is insulting to my time and effort.  Just remove it if that is all you are willing to offer.

    Haha, good job balancing the event.  Have yet to see a fleet of punishers kill a harvester without being wrecked.  Great play testing as usual.  Two thumbs up.

    maybe they should thought about this event some. while it is interesting for the alien aspect the prizes are for high tier players. there is no prize for mid lvl to lower lvl players. to many useless boxes and not enough boxes to serve the main player base.

    so.... the reapers are bullshit too. last event i got maybe 2 hrs rep from hitting the reaper 68, now i got 3.5 hrs. stop buffing the flts and reducing the point payout, one or the other, not both

    kix this event sucks period...i have hit harvesters before but these new one are over the top. you have even eliminated co op so no fun to be had with friends. All of this to increase the amount of damage we take. i have every bp in the game minus one (blood raven); so i guess i was the target market for this event; well i you guessed wrong...i am keeping my money. there is nothing that i really need from this event an i guess i can have an empty slot in my bp list. THIS IS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT

    CM DOOMROOSTER can you give any insight to how much Kixeye expects players to earn? 

    CM DOOMROOSTER can you give any insight to how many hours Kixeye expects players to actively play? 


    Yes in this style no one, outside massive coiners, should get it all yet what did you expect with the model "if you want it you must Pay to Win" in a "Free to Play" game?  No one is really complaining about paying cash for coins, its just making the game require it to actually be competitive (average or par) is what seems crazy.

    Kixeye you madness crazy, how it be possible. People very like this, when It's impossible to get what you give in prizes having a top fleet. (sarcasm) I'm talking about aliens above 80. Fleets below 80, give funny points, but they are just as impossible to get without having earned damage. You kidding gamers who long play. It looks like you want to steal more money and then escape somewhere in Mexico laughing at all us

    I thought i would try a fleet of pythons out with full skirmish armour on one of my alts

    Here's the results



    I can find my own way out. Have fun 
    TBH do you know the Missiles do AOE dmg? so why group them and collect every single piece of aoe and get 4x dmg :D But i agree... too much dmg

    mega coiner only event, for those who spent money to get mk 5 decimater cutters. due to power creep rape nobody else has them other than mega coiners. kix doesn't care about the game anymore, just the money a handful of people are putting into it. stop complaining and just stop playing

    says the one that is wasting their time by coming to the forums of a game they supposedly dont play to say this. you are not giving a good example here

    but you are very right

    Skipped the last rotten event. First one in about four years I did not participate in. This will be the second. You expect me to kill one reaper per cycle and get enough loot to use on something? cycle 1 is so nerfed in points to make it pointless and everything in P3 is only for major coiners with marked up punishers. I'm off to play pokemon. Wake me when it's over.

    The ships were all spaced out before they went in i was aware of the aoe but if you click on the harvester which i did in that video they all bunch up on the approach. you need to click behind it and also the stasis field bunches your ships up even more
    The problem with this game is the power curves. Just look at the graphs I made. Said no vega conflict player ever
