    I've never done Bounty before, does everyone keep their defender fleet out during bounty?

    So tell me kixeye, why exactly should I bother with the new PAC if the seige cycle has ended and only A sets will be seige next month? I have the pegasus, im almost done with my fleet, just doing upgrades now, why would I even bother with A sets in the next raid?


    Seriously, what an oversight on your part. The new PAC would have been great for, idk, the siege cycle before it ended? dummies

    Pass on bounty until it is fair for everyone. The way it is set up now those at the bottom have little chance to get anything good after the first day. I wonder how many will be suckered into doing bounty with free dreads. I played bounty when it first started and you had so many lock points to use each day. That was a good way for those who can't buy the latest and greatest hulls and can't afford to pay to rank and upgrade. The 10,000 point secure point is deceptive. You actually need 20,000 which is a lot to get doing bounty targets. I know that those who buy their fleets and pay to rank and upgrade them prefer the current way as it benefits them.

    The 10 k is NOT deceptive. Your bounty points are split between secured and un secured so you will always keep half of what you earn. Also when the unsecured total reaches 5k then that becomes secured. So by the time your 5k unsecured becomes secure you will also have another 5k that is also secure due to the split so thats 10K secured bounty. Its way easier now than it was in the past for lower lvls.

    you don't have to do bounty at all if you don't want to; kix can't remove you from bounty at all once you opt in for a particular round. 
    COOT is recruiting; please PM Scorpious_DOW for details

    Actually, now that Kix is including PVE content in bounty it is not so easy to say "you don't have to do bounty". This inclusion of new PVE content, only available in bounty, is depressing to say the least. It takes a chore that was "optional" and makes it far less so if you wish to remain competitive with your goons in future PVE targets.
    Upgrade Pirates is not as fun as Battle Pirates

    having a breacher fleet was promising and i thought it would be cool to be able finally get a few things that i can't get anywhere else. god-so did the same thing as i...thought we would have a chance with the new fleet but it dies too easy. so now we are locked into being targets and wont get any points to get anything.

    Bounty is frustrating because the game crashes almost every time you get in a target....result is sunk fleet before you can get back in.

    Bad enough that Kixeye cheats on the heavy armor/hit points in the targets, but not even being able to survive because of crashes is really incompetent game mechanics.

    Score another one for Kixeye in the Negative Column.

    Suggestions for future bounty's if you want to get more to do bounty. Give those with average bases and fleets a chance. Starting with the day after employee bases end give people 2 save points per day that they can use when they want to. Second thing if bubble is only for 4 hours why doesn't base repair to 100% in four hours?

    Yes they have balanced out the damage between the defender and the attacker pretty well. But now the problem is if the base isn't completely repaired the attackers advantage is way to big. If i'm attacking bases I don't mind coining the repairs to keep going, but I'm not coining base repairs too. A 4 hr base repair in bounty would go a long way to even things out again. Right now I just stop doing bounty till my base is repaired and keep my points low so my base isn't worth the damage to points which takes around 10.5 hrs. For that time kix isn't making any money off me. So It would bring in more coin if the base was repaired in the 4 hr bubble time. But I really don't see it happening the whales would cry that they can't get all those ez points farming out half dead bases for low repair time.

    Thanks for the campaigns, Kixeye!  Great to get "elite" turrets when base is never repaired through.
    And now we must get something to stop this breacher spammers.

    So this thread will be closed in a few hours, and not a single post from either a MOD or the CM / acting CM. Way to go kix, communication is right up there I see lol.

    On a more serious note, its very concerning to me, that the forums seem to be dyeing, a thread posted by the CM, in the past would have had in excess of 7 or 8 pages, with numerous and varied posts. I know we also have Discord, but even so, is the game generating that much? are there really that few players still playing. 
    What me cynical, no, never, maybe!!, well I have been playing kix games for over 3 years.
    Remember its just a game, your life doesn't rely on you being the best.
    Sectors visited :- Who cares, been to some killed some stuff moved on.
    Hulls :- Yep got some and some have guns and stuff

    The forum has died I'd say.

    This combining of game issues/questions into one thread goes to prove that....long gone have the multitude of posts and threads about "things".

    Also as @Rabbit1 you say, the Mod's have all but disappeared as well - yes they still post but not as often as they use to, as for the CM's...well nothing has changed there, MIA as always
