    You aren't missing anything. These boats truly suck. Cant kill walls..can't kill with splash...but take splash damage on each boat.

    They absolutely can do those things though.., unless you used thuds

    not sure I want to spend 40 mil and 18+ days on the dragon lead as it's flag effect is only within 125 range when the savage kodiak can hide in a corner and give the +50% defense for 8 days build time as it has no range limit
    The only way the flag is better then the Kodi, is if the deflections it adds to all the boats, will decrease the overall damage that adding a 5th hull to splash damage will cause.

    Ill get it, and build it..   but if I take more damage in teh 117 then I currently do.. it will sit in my dock like the grid mono.

    The base hull itself has some interesting stats.  Arguably more than the aura.  If those CM stats mean it can be a decent CM tank, that frees up my IDs for more damage potential.

    I also wouldn't count on the 117 allowing the use of a savage sitting in the corner for much longer.  This is KIX afterall, so my guess is we'll end up seeing either something that targets and kills the Savage, or see it locked out completely.  Just my guess at this point.
    I already kill everything fast enough with the 4 IDs I currently have..  And for the most part the only thing hitting my fleet is the green flying missiles that cannot be countered..

    yes I can get the tokens and move everything to the flag for a little better percentage.. BUT WHY???   I already shoot down everything that can be shot down.. 

    If they lock out the Skodi from the 117s then its a Dik move on their part.   Wouldnt put it past them, but it is what it is.   Just like I expected with the flag..  Waiting this long kills it..    We already have the fleet working as good as we can get it,  The flag is not a big enough boost to warrant refitting the entire fleet to work it in. 

    Just not impressed.

    Not at all happy about the hyper-30 being locked to the super-tier targets. I had a Caedes anyway, but it really makes me wonder: What was the point of pushing the Caedes last raid if you're going to continually say, to the few SUPER-WHALES who got them, actually, **** you, you're not allowed to use the Caedes you spent >$1000 on? No, not on that either. Or that. No, not that either. No. No. Not that either. We've got your money, now go away.

    Seems like a very well targeted way of annoying your highest spending customers to me.

    Moving on to the prizes...

    Dragon looks very powerful, MDS3 is alright but nothing special for a limited blueprint that is years younger than it's rival, D6 armours are nice.

    The main thing that ticks me off for this raid is that we HAVE to pick between the ID flag or the Manticore Flag. I was hoping to snag both so that I could outfit my Scattergun Manticore fleet with the flag for the upcoming hull store in august. Now I can't.

    You can pick both. They just would cost you 40 mill each then.

    This was the same last raid with Proto Centurion on 1 side and the Manticore on the other side.  (although they only costed 20 mill each not 40 mill)
    I ended up just taking both. Choosing 1 didn't lock the other one for me, so you are not forced to take 1 certain path.

    Unless they sneaky hotpatched this that you are forced to choose 1 side.

    If the layout of the left and right prize list is the same as last raid you can take both.
    Last raid on the hull spot we had Proto Centurion on Left and Manticore on Right. And I ended up taking both hulls.

    Unlikely they rather you hit these 2 new targets we aren't ready and planned out for.

    was just wondering what the better more versatile fleet was?
    It's just a game, hit repair and get over it.

    I use the Skyfire fleet myself. I do not own the Phoenix fleet so I can't speak for that one.
    The skyfire fleet I use for numerous things.

    Last raid that fleet got me 100mill points. And outside the raid I can use it for the Daily Campaign with instant repair and also for even the highest Titanium targets with instant repair.
    The phoenix fleet probably can also do that, but unsure how much damage they will take during the daily tasks.

    In the past it was one side or the other. You couldn't get both sides in same raid. They may have changed that last raid. Mod will have to find out.

    Why in the world do you keep releasing turrets with 105 range? Every New base attack hull exceeds this range, friggin useless!

    Agreed. A really good CM setup can stop the older hulls from dealing much damage, which can force people to rush, but the impact won't care, and neither will the better MSC drivers.

    So are we going to have to choose between the manti flag or the dragon flag? If i remember right in the past you could only pick one side to redeem prizes from.
    Go for the Greta ID, Manti flag will be released in a TLC after this raid and the next - will promote coin builds....

    If no bonus and points constant for 100s and 102s, what's the incentive for hitting 102s?

    There is none, that's why only the new targets have the bonus associated with them.

    Most likely they will be the same targets as from the last raid, hence players know them and could potentially drive them with less damage unlike the new ones...(thats until a path is found..)

    it gives tactic to the game, you cant have a single shot kill turret.......if you disagree your a noob with a farm.  btw it is very useful

    the prize list is as lame as that quote (im a huge DL fan, but that quote has pretty much no relevance to BP) .  also, the inundation of limited prizes is another way of pissing off players who have told how much they hate them. so, good job ;)
