    yes. we are well aware you don't know how to prioritise builds, build, select targets and drive.

    no need to prove it.

    I'm taking anywhere from 40 to 60% more damage then I did 6 hrs ago, I know you guys "tinker" with the targets during raids, however it's typically not until the 2nd or 3rd day, WTH is going on here? Ya say you're working on customer retention, this is SURELY not the way to retain them, typically it would be logical to make the customer happy, I can assure you, I for 1 am not HAPPY with this change!!
    i did a 104 and a 106 this morning when i started for around 3hrs 30mins now i just did another set 7hrs 14 mins kixeye wont see anymore coin from me during this raid that is utter bulldust there i probably laws which kixeye are breaking with tampering with the game to increase its profit as it is a huge different's in damage poker machine operator  cant just medal with their machines  **** nilly same principle they are all to make money so i wonder ?

    For those complaining that they are having issues with this raid here is a build that does the tier 8 targets for about an hour damage a piece.  It isn't the best build out there but it works for me.  No excuses I don't coin a single bit and already have 60mil.  Be smart with your builds and be smart with your shipyard time and stop building old hulls.   https://www.dahippo.com/bp/ship/#!JPOQ04H4H4H4H8W4279038X8ZCACACACACACACACA0APOP04H4H4H4H8W427903448Z2A2ACACACACACACA0APOP04H4H4H4H8W4279038X8ZCACACACACACACACA07POP04H4H4H4H8W4279038X8ZCACACACACACACACA0APOP04H4H4H4H8W4279038X8ZCACACACACACACACA07dEl3

    Sounds like you took some shots from some scatters you hadnt taken before.  I haven't noticed a huge increase in damage from 12hrs ago.

    do something about the gosh darn lag!!! I've lost 2 fleets to it - I'm beginning to suspect the lag is intentional, just to make sure everyone gets damaged, no matter how carefully they drive. I'd be willing to bet the lag is selective -- they know who the whales are, I bet their games don't lag. 

    One "feature" that's guaranteed to cause lag are those idiotic scourge pop-up things. Every scenario that has those lags. Whatever code is behind them must be horrible. 

    And they serve no purpose whatsoever, a complete waste of time. You can never move fast enough to get to the other side before they pop-up, so what value to them, other than to cause lag?

    IF they popped up in response to triggers on the map that could be avoided, they might be interesting, but that sort of clever code is clearly beyond this generation of designers. All they know how to do is make targets too hard and make more lag.

    I used to coin all the time, I have no coins and I will buy no coins.  It has been just fine not coining at all, are my builds slower, my repairs longer, yep, but who cares, it is a **** video game.

    I think some of the extra damage is they have made the targets harder to kill.  I'm taking twice as much damage on a 104 now, as I did when the event started yesterday.  Scatterguns take three volleys now, where it was two before, and missiles take 4-5 volleys per boat to kill.  Even with crews they are hard to kill.

    Is there a particular reason that I get a message "0 gold for 0 Res" when I hit repair on my fleets?  I click it and nothing as in repairs don't start happens.

    Hoping somebody can help,  I've got 62 mil and have hit (6) S sets of 104 + 106.   I read in the briefing that I should get 1 shard drop for each 104, why does it only show 2 of 5 and I don't have the BP I want to refit

    well since last week's update I've had some sort of suspected flash bug where it doesn't matter what target I'm in, at about the 1.5min mark the down arrow stops working, and the fleet randomly stops on it's way to it's next target. Doesn't matter what fleet, or which target, and a refresh doesn't do chit either unlike with normal flash lag. Not good for having to precision drive so looks like my raid is done. 1 set of T6 with phoenix =1h repair, 1 x 104 with 5 missile manticores = 4h39m repair, not much point to continuing with raid unfortunately.
    It's a bug that's been kicking around. Bane mentioned it on a crib show or somewhere- to fix it if you hit the shift key first or at the same time (can't remember which) the arrows start working again.

    you might check on the ADVANCE tab m8, if you already got 6x, it will supposedly counted as 1-Print on the advance tab, and 1of5 on the SHARDS tab.

    As usual the damage is way over the top. 2h damage to a manticore fleet in a 85.  what a joke kix.
    yeah i know.. between 3 and 6 minutes damage to a caedes. outrageous!!!
    LOL bort you cannot just resist it can you.

    Hey man keep it up, you keep me smiling whilst waiting for my fleet to repair.
    yar. i be waiting for my mantis to repair, so just semi-autoin me caedes in the meantime.

    but seriously, carl reads the forums, he should know to be hitting the S sets. Just refit to the tsm build and he then has a fleet that goes through like butter.
    You mean the fleet that he posted for the 2 coin repair that was from a test server, or the one he ran right at the start of the raid when the targets were much easier? At this point I question the integrity of some on that page.

    Nice. My two hour repair for a 104 is four hours this morning. Kix didn't even wait until one day was over to jack up the damage. It got jacked about six hours into the raid.

    Now what to do with four hours, instead of sitting here playing bp.

    Have fun all.

    We do play the game. Even if people don't agree with Bort, your past pretty much has been a constant reminder of what not to do.

    Yea, I'd like to see new vidoes made showing they can still do 104s and 106s for one hour repair each.

    The 40s and 60s are tuned for fleets with charged armor.  The 80s and 100s for fleets with defense armors.  By seeing the fleets recommended in the briefing you can tell this.

    Been away for 3 years.... i was a whale.... top 25 global once upon a time. Logged back in and decided to give it another go last week. Built a few mediocre fleets but I now consider myself a big style noob player so I empathise. My best fleet just took 5 hours 15 minutes damage for a grand total of 79 points in the smallest target I could find.....a 41. By my calculations if I play for 5,537 days straight I can get the Gutspill's Skyfire.

    I DEMAND YOU INCREASE THE RAID TIME !!!!

    A second repair queue would be nice.
    wouldn't help honestly. every time I get close to a enemy ship the game loses frames and I can't turn away resulting in my manti/flag being surrounded and tore up. This only happens in assault raid targets and happened last assault raid as well. I think it is due to lag in the raid but jesus why do I bother focusing on top fleets when this glitch makes it futile. Yes I do coin but I have not coined my manti fleet. Mentioning other games is not allowed here I think but it would cost less to play them with this issue and still give me a challenge in strategy. I have hung on by a thread since 1st siege raid and have still been purchasing coin even though I boycotted it in January after that mess. In real life it is a strategy to make friends and help each other in a different issue. Kixeye has systematically removed the ability for people to prep for others. This may be frowned upon by the loaner type of personality but it is a strategy in this strategy game non the less. I used to get preps and now I am in tip top shape I cannot pay it forward. I not only help my alliance but all in-sector. most of my interest gaming here is in these 2 issues and I stay in hopes of changes back to the core personality of the game which has degraded. If you have read this and agree plz click like on my comment so I know others feel the same way. Take care my Pirate peeps and happy hunting!
