    @Templar614 can you or someone pass up that the 60's are showing as tier 6 in the event modal, but they show as tier 5 in the locator?

    guess i'm an anomaly, i'm using my ironclads from a year ago with no charged armor, no countermeasures and no crew and am autoing the 60s.  i'm doing 3 full sets for 5-6 hrs repair for roughly 3 mil points using the build recommended on TFC a year ago for doing the raids then.  

    i do have some tokens saved so am going to instant refit them to include shielded tactical system and 1 each phalanx and trident to cut down on damage hopefully.  working on a buccaneer fleet but it's not ready yet.  maybe next month.

    Same here, using a fleet of ironclads with mauser cannons, and a Zelos fleet with quake cannons. can even throw in a Zelos into your ironclad fleet, that can offer some of the countermeasure defence that you clearly looking for  ;) I'm shocked at how many people here DON'T have a Zelos fleet built considering the ships do so well in FM, normal and uranium bases, and lower end scourge grid targets...or maybe they do but haven't decided to think outside the box?
    ever had  a problem where you log on and someone is hitting your base, and wanted to view the world map while it happens? try this.
    1/select leadersboard.
    2/select player's medals.
    3/select any player there.
    4/select "find base"
    that may or may not take you to world map.

    IC's seem to be doing better than bucks in many cases! A few of our guys are using them to great effect. It's slow going, but it works.

    so, turns out the raid is pretty simple, as long as you built basic buccs following anything posted on TFC.

    as expected.
    What is that slurping, sucking sound????....Oh wait, it's just bort pleasuring himself in public again.
    surprise surprise. you're whining again. i am shocked.....

    It's called mocking, bort...I'll send you a dictionary
    you forgot your other post from a few minutes before that one.

    that actual explains quite a lot ......
    What I write on here is none of your concern bud. Maybe don't read it if you don't like it. The forum during a raid is always packed full of complaints, and you always come to whine about the whining. It's almost like you want to be offended over nothing. hmmm

    My other post wasn't whining either bud, just an opinion based on a non no-life or heavy coiner's perspective. I'm actually doing ok in the raid given my lack of hulls, and not really bothered if I don't claim anything big. There is always next month, and now I can go and socialize this weekend.

    If you were talking about my "whining" why did you reply to this and not that? Getting angry? Mwahahahaha.
    because i dont whine about whining.

    but you seem to think making a personal attack makes you a big man.

    thing is, i worked full time today. and haven't even needed that much actual seat time. because i plan ahead, in a strategy game. go figure.

    You do, and you boast, CONSTANTLY.

    You don't mind the occasional personal attack on me, so it only seems fair I return the favour.

    Good for you, well done. The cookie is in the post. Maybe you should tell more people, use CAPS or start a new thread, so that everyone knows how amazingly awesome bort is. I know I can't get enough of your tactical genius EVERY day on the forums.

    EDIT: let's leave this here, or continue our argument in PM.
    fortunately, just because you say something does not make it true.

    bort is right, but it is worth mentioning, that it is significantly cheaper to claim than the alternatives. It's aimed at struggling catch up players. So if you are doing ok in the game and can get the better flagships, ignore it totally.

    Whatever bud. I don't need to prove anything, thankfully. It's all here in black and white for all to see. (pretty weak response btw, even for you)

    PM me next time.

    Increased points is meaningless if you can't complete the **** sets without robbing a bank. This raid is a no go for those that care about what they spend or those that just can't spend anything. Even the lowest target, a 41, causes to much damage to be worth doing.

    It's not that much cheaper: 33 mill for hull, wep, spcl, CIC bridge.  Bucc is 40 mill with wep+ spcl & Hydra 35 mill.

    And I say again to Kix: Games should be fun, fun needs choice; proscribing: play with this Hull + this weapon - or die & go away - is not Fun. All the target variation is nice but there needs to be more freedom of choice re hulls & weapons.
    We can't do that. Some armchair warriors will have to actually think for themselves, like in the old days and won't be able to boast on the forums about how great they are cos they built what they were told. We can't have that!!!

    Not much cheaper with all the gear, but bear in mind. There will most likely be generalist tech in the FM that will work with this for the smaller guys, so you only really need claim the hull.

    Personally, I'd say skip it and go for something else, but it is an option if all else fails.

    For the concerns about the point payouts this morning.  Anyone who exploited the payout this morning had the points removed from their accounts.
    AND what about those that cashed in their chips and called it a raid?

    This current raid has to be the worst of the charged armour raids so far.

    We should be able to clear a target in 1 hit  but the charge is being stripped a ridiculous rate, making the need for multiple retreats to complete a target.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the armour life decreased slowly after the charge was depleted, so you could chose between more damage or more time BUT unless you retreat when the charge is gone, your fleet is sunk.

    We need either more charge or the damage output to actually be balanced to the current tech.
    Naaa, it's a luxury item, remember?  And Kix said we wouldn't need Rad armour for this raid either.

    I'm curious as to the IC build by those auto'ing 60's and doing multiple sets.  I to have IC"s although I'm barely getting through 1 set with the Mauser build and I confirmed my build with an alliance mate.  Now my alliance mate admits he is using a demolotion crew to make it look so easy. 

    Additionally,  why isn't Bloodthirst being activated on the IC's.  The only blood i'm seeing is my health bar.  :)
