    Well, that would be nice, but dragon tokens won't help with the Greta's Inferno Dragon, so that part is not as helpful as we might like.

    There should not be any VXP or build tokens for the ID's or GID in the weekly. The benefit to those that got them in the raid was being able to rank them last weekend. 

    The fact that Kix put it in the FM should be good enough. Kix could have waited and just expected you to get it in the hull store.
    Adding it to the FM allows the mid players to earn it now and be able to focus on getting the skirmish hull for the next raid series.

    Everyone cries for the struggling little guy, Kix is trying to help the little guy so they continue playing. Everyone now cries because Kix is helping the little guy. It looks like people don't truly want anything done to help the little guy.  

    Yes, I did get the GID in the raid. Yes, I did get it built in time to rank it during VXP weekend.
    The people getting it this week will have to wait till next month to rank it.
    Yes, I would have gotten the GID in the raid even if Kix said it would be in the FM this week.
    Why? you might ask, well I needed to open the locked store for the stuff I wanted/needed.

    This is a good move by Kix. 
    With making the GID and ID available in the weekly they can finally remove the 103/111's.
    Those targets should have went away a few month ago. People aren't building the ID's and GID because Kix left the 111's. 
    Everyone has had ample time to build the ID's. If they cry about the removal of targets now it is on them.

    I agree and I'm not mad about it either but a lot of people would have taken the manti flag instead of the dragon flag, if they had known ahead of time.   

    I think this was a good move by kix. They just should have communicated with players about it before it happened.

    Ok 2 question for Rampage on the new legion targets.  1st will the damage in them be toned down?  The new legion targets lvl 30s give over 10 times the damage than the old lvl 60s for example in fully ranked Hydra flt. 34 mins damage lvl 30 mins  compared to 3mins in old 60s .  Just seems a little excessive.  2nd question is where are they, only I can find is the lvl 120 sub sector bases in any sector?

    Come on dog that's 8 mil over 6 days.  That vrs 40 mil over 4 days.   Even you can do math I suspect.
    That 40 Mill actually meant hitting 8 targets.

    The 8 Mill will (for most) involve hitting well over 27 (112s) or 54 (111s) targets.

    8 targets or 54 targets, math?
    If you are going to compare apples with pears at least do it properly....

    You are comparing the TOP tiers from raid with MID tiers from FM....

    You mean ofcourse:
    40 mill in raid was hitting 8 targets
    8 mill in FM is hitting 13,33333 targets (seeing that is the TOP tier from FM)

    And seeing you get double the time to achieve that 8 million, getting it in the FM is alot easier than it was in the raid!

    It is not like you need to spend 9 million in order to get the Tier5 chest seeing you can easily go for 1 of the MANY limited prices in tier 5.
    Like the Resistors, Haymaker Drones, the limited armor (added after last raid!) and probably some others I missed mentioning!

    Rampage, wrongthinker, Robot, doesn't matter what you say. It still is showing that Kix is for themselves and not the players like you all have said. You place a siege camp and you lose a hydra fleet in pp1 something is very wrong. Not going to spend money to do something. Would rather do without and you treat us players like crap by putting the Greta in the weekly. Your such garbage and CHEATS No wonder price and Nash and Liam left the game. You need to compensate all the players that worked so hard to get it in the raid. or you need just take it out of the weekly. 9 Mil points that is not very much and can be easily won. If your going to show that the players don't mean anything except money then you need to just shut down. This is total disrespect no wonder you can't have more than 28 k people playing when there was over 100 k 3 yrs ago. YOU BETTER FIX THIS AND FIX THIS FAST
    post your build. hydras cakewalk the campaign.

    maybe you should get that right before you start complaining?

    and its players like you who are going to get the FM prizes put up to 9 million every week. who the f says 9 million points is 'not that very much and can be easily won'? seriously do you even think before you post? Everyone blame Brent in a few weeks when the FM point requirements goes up massively.

    So how many 1 Day ship build tokens are we allowed to redeem in the fm?  It only allowed me to redeem 1 (no, my limit of 2 is not reached).  After I redeemed my first token, the 1 Days were locked.

    I know, I know.  It's most likely a glitch because it has always been only a single 1 Day redeem in the FM.  Just poking fun.  :)

    I call bull **** on ample time to build. Kix has so many hull types needed to play well in many areas of game play that it IS impossible to do without piles of coin. Players must pick an avenue they wish to follow to succeed in and fail in others UNLESS player spends a ton of coin. Free tokens and all mean squat. Without coining heavy, you will fall behind fast and loose interest in the entire game. Simple to see. Just so you get it straight, KIX is helping kix.Don't fool yourself. Yes what was done will help a few BUT  the intention was to get more coin. Don't be afraid, call a spade a spade.
    As for not building the ID's and GID because 111's are still available, that statement makes you DONKEY, (figure it out) . No time in shipyard may have some weight here. Come on, you can't be all that ............................ Pick your wording, plenty of room.

    The point increase in FM is the same as last time.it is a ploy to get more coin from players. Points needed will rise every couple weeks and many will coin to get there , same as last time. When it caps out, Kix will alter again. Over and over. Simple . Screwing the people that pay. Answer.....STOP. Supply and demand. This is the base line for all. Supply and demand. Fall for it and loose.

    False. I and a few others keep up perfectly fine in the game without needing to coin. Knowledge of the game makes this possible.

    Only real time consuming part for me is bounty since I don’t coin. The past 2 raids only required 10 hours of play over the 4 days to get 500 million each time. FM is autoed, titanium is autoed, base parts I auto from the map (have specific entry point for target), uranium is autoed, tlc raids and bounty are only things that require driving, but even some/most tlc’s are autoable as well. And this is all done while watching tv, so I am not wasting any time.

    Making Pos Vanguard special at 9 mill FM points in the same w/end as Bounty means I will not do Bounty this time. We now live in a 24/7 world, many of us work w/ends and this game is far too heavily loaded for specials at w/end now. Not just Raids anymore but also Bounty, VXP and many TLC's Now FM specials too. All too much over w/ends.

    And another thing - it's very nice of kix to let us buy our way out of their game 're-balance' and target upgrades. I've never seen so many 'special purchase offers' at one time. And My Bucc fleet just took 3 hrs damage from a legion 103 - Scourge 103 gave it less than 30 mins. 10 times ???? I'm very nearly done with feeling permanently hustled by this game.

    40 mil vs. 8 mil? Thanks for the screwing, AGAIN. Players first? They must have meant who do we piss off first.
    40mill was 8 targets in raid, 8 mill is 13/14 120/121s or 16 117s. Hardly screwing the players, a little odd to see it offered so soon though.
