    Lets see, I spent 50 coin using my 4 legendary mantis to pull out of raid with 70 mil due to my personal time restrictions and raids go 4 days. But, Using my vasago led IB fleet fitted with lightnings and full charged armors and other Inferno tech I auto 14 111's for 4 hours damage, thats just under 2 mil I get twice a day, not to mention my 3 ship fleet of dragons doing 3 112's for 4 hrs damage also.... 8 mil is a joke for well planned fleets and a load of seat time.Not to mention its the start of summer vacation in many places around the world and many players will have the time this weekend to put in to it. Its a good upper for mid levels needing a leg up, but crap kix... just GGRRRR. Last time kix did something similar they did the exact opposite, the hull was up for 60 mil... kix saying high price was due to ease of FM points and 6 days vs. the lower payout in raids with a 4 day run.... We did a special store raid a couple years ago to prove this, people di a FM week run finishing with 200 mil + for no real money cost..

    BOUNTY SEASON 12

    • Runtime: 7/26 at 10am PDT to 7/30 at 10am PDT

    • Changes from Bounty Season 11

      • Removed Flat value from Player Bases

      • Removed Defense Fleets from Replica Bases

    Right! So, the changes in bounty 11 have been reversed and we are back to same rules as bounty 10 except with the full 800 bounty drip every 6 hours instead of the half bounty drip from bounty 10. 

    Huh.

    Here I was all set to skip bounty 12 since bounty 11 turned my base into a perma-crater and I could never get into my dock when I wanted to do PvE chores. Darn. Now I have to consider playing this bounty season to collect the free drips and get the new counter measures...

    Thanks for slowing down on content and make my dream come through... countermeasures on throwers launchers and ballistics... yeah right... and a marvelous new module that will stun the only thing that keeps fleets out, my guard....  what are you thinking, lets first dump all we had in the backlog and then work on customer first. Be proud of yourself, you managed to keep your word for at least 2 days.
     
    teh stun will last for a second at most when built right..

    For those already whining about the GID, it might not be as easy to get as you think.  That's a huge amount of points and if someone grinds it out they deserve it.
    its a token blocker then?

    Well, I tried for 6 months to catch up after being out for a few years. I was doing pretty good too. But, they took out the DUB's that I was able to do and I have no fleet to do the new SSRB's. Now, today, they do away with the base parts that I could attack and replace them with the Legion Colonies...which, again, I have no fleets to do them. Can't do too much without uranium and base parts. I thought they were supposed to help those of us that are trying to catch up. I feel for the new players, I wish them well. Later.

    So if we already achieved all the pp5 prizes last week, does that mean we have to achieve the posieden vanguard (or greta dragon) to get access to the pp5 legendary chest?

    That 8 mil point requirement a lot more than the typical 1.1 million for the other prizes.

    That's exactly what it means, and I'm surprised no one but you and I have mentioned that.  Fortunately, I still have some of the cheaper prizes left in T5, but anyone who is caught up is royally screwed, unless they really want one of those two hulls.
    I'm actually expecting them to be in the locked section of T5 with the 2-9d token chest. so that 8mill point hull is probably a 9.1 mill point hull for anyone not caught up.

    That would be the smart play, but look who we're talking about here.

    Yes, I spent 40 million raid points on the Greta - from doing 60 sets with Skyfires by the way - and I'm fine with people being able to get it for 8 million FM points. Even if you have an excellent FM fleet that's a lot of FM.   The amount of refits I'm going to have to do to my Manticores to make them worth anything - that's a horse of a different color.
    huh????

    Rampage is there anything else besides these 2 boats being added to the FM?  I already have all the tier 5 prizes & the GID so now I will have to grind out 9 million points for a boat and 1.2 million more to get the legendary chest?
    exactly what they want, least that looks like it's the only add this week, thinking this become a permanent thing every month now, gotta love these guys

    Pen damage in seige target for hulls the have -100% pen resist... SMH

    At least I understand the GID in the FM. Numbers from this last raid were horrible. The price point seems a bit high for those who need it. The cynic in me says they'll put a short timer on it too.

    I think bounty will be a train wreck. I get the need for the change, but it will be a huge pull back from last month. They should've just tied the bonus to the % damage dealt to base. If I kill the dock in a dead base, that would be 0.1% damage. So the bonus on max level base would be 700 * 0.001 or 0.7 points (they could be generous and round it up to 1). Sure it can be "exploited," but that is part of any game - beat the system.

    Yup.  Here's a reply from Rampage to one of the TFC mods regarding the hulls in T5 of the FM:
    "...you should have some of the repeatable in that prize pool. If somehow you are capped out on all of those, then you would need to redeem one of them."

    Hydras get a speed increase for each hydra in the fleet. So hydras will be faster.

    So let me get this straight; in the last rampage reports you said you were NOT reducing the build times on the manticores which you acknowledge are too high as reducing the buildtimes UNDERMINES and DEVALUES the time / coin the existing players put into building them.
    BUT
    you add the greta inferno dragon into the FM when the raid players worked their butts off to get it in is only 2 weeks old. Talk about a double standard.
    Sucks for those of us that had only enough points to have to choose between the GID and the makara's manticore and we took the gid. I would have taken the other one if I knew kix was going to do this.
