    point given were never scaled to % off damage / point


    killing 50% of a fleet won't give 50% of intel .



    also considering this is so **** easy to do and basically could be considered an exploit ( using an non intended game mechanics/exploit to progress further and faster at lower cost ) , they have all right to remove those point if they want .

    this system was changed about 12-18 months ago due to the ability for some event fleets to be exploited by killing 2 ships only and getting a very high amount of points leaving 80% of the fleet behind.


    This exploit was widely published by MANNI and then Kixeye saw the exploit and changed the system to a sliding scale, where to the less damage you did to a fleet there was a dramatic reduction in points.

    So if you want to blame anyone for this change.... blame MANNI

    Manni no longer here so no point to blame anymore.

    before he created and publicized those exploits we did not have a points curve, since then every fleet has had the points curve in them, so yes I will still blame him

    They have removed the points curve, a penalty is now applied instead (-95% max I think) if you are using low-tier cheap fleets to cheese the targets, a better solution imo.

    why are you doing this event when clearly you are a long way off even building a wraith?

    Note that the Wraith Cruiser has tech requirements, so that even if you got the blueprint using cheese tactics, you will still need intervening technology in order to build them.

    Why did you buff the blitz 90 a 2nd time? I was taking good damage already for 2 hours trying to get a tactic right then did another for 6 hours?!?!? Are you serious on this bypass? I took so much damage on bypass it's just not fair I was wanting to do blitz so can get all tech using coin but seems you want more then needed

    It seems that a draw will earn you zero points no matter what you use.

    On defeat, the points earned suffers a penalty based on your damage taken. So you can basically suicide heavily armored Revelations and earn the full points, lol.

    if you use 6x axis cutters with harmonic thrusters, can't you also outrun the wraith ones?

    wow...thats something new.

    What i dont like is low lvl players leave half dead 90 fleets. These are anyway less then needed and then low lvl players screw things even more up. Half the 90 fleets that i klick is already damaged. Really dont like that.

    but it is a relatively easy way to pick up 111K in points plus getting a MK5 phoenix box

    Blank hulls sure, but good luck equipping weapons, specials, armor and shields to it without the requisite technologies.  Oh, you have a new wraith cruiser but it's only equipped with Polaron rays?  HAHAHA.  (It's actually my situation on the Preview Server.  The other players there have fun beating up on me and mentioning this in chat).
