    Seeing as how the 128s are being reported as excessive damage I tried my luck with the 67s and 69s.  The 67s are acceptable. However I would suggest to Kixeye they put a few more boats into the 69s. There is a small amount of space which would allow for another full set of attackers !!!! Sorry about the sarcasm but for the points being awarded for killing such a vast number of boats and subs and taking over 2hrs damage is disproportionate.

    After hitting a single 128 and having 6 hours of damage I have decided not to spend any money on the pillage event unless kix reduces the damage to a normal level. 1 player may not make a large impact by doing this but if I can get as many of my friends and there alliances to do the same it might be enough for the to take notice.

    Yes the damage is equaling out to 1 coin per 1000 points, The game is no longer sustainable for a majority of the players. And as far as the peg flag being pushed to U4 is total BS so it's only going to get worse. I'm beyond caring anymore, Let them kill the game.
    yes this is what i feel too, as for the u4 this doesnt surprise me in the least war commander became upgrade commander and i left that game ages ago to come here. now this feels a lot like upgrade pirates soon i will not play this as well.




    doesn't bode well for stillborn

    what is the point in just timing out in a 68 when the sub parks outside of map and you can't finish target?

    When was the last time they made any move in the players' favor?  The last time we enjoyed something without coining and they didn't take it away?  Or gave us a target that didn't have over-the-top damage?   Or new tech that worked as advertised?  Or fixed a bug?  Face it pirates, you're being milked.

    Multi lens tracking isn't on the list for some players.  They have none and are not maxed out.

    Way too much damage on 67's and 69's, also after defeating the target it wouldn't release my fleet.  Another event I can't play.

    conclusion of 128: A total kix loving project! no skill required, only pure damage to the core!

    by the way does any of you realize that war peg could be redeemed twice?

    What does that means? 

    A single flagship isn't enough that you need two, switching time between insane amount of rep time to get 'enough' point.

    greedy kixeye. Ah, yes. Enslaved coin(insert sarcasm here)
    In the end, it just down into maths, pure maths. We just don't really know how their math works.

    The damage in the 128 is just too high. I have one Preat with literally double the survival of an identical ship in the group. After a run in the 128 the difference in damage was 10 minutes between the two. This is about a 16% difference at near an hour for the more damaged ship. How can that be?? It is worth noting that if you use the flag as a tank ahead of the group you can reduce your damage... but 3-5hrs damage for one target does not make for happy pirates.

    7 hours repair to silverfish fleet after a 130...
    The damage in the 130 seems appropriate with most people taking less than 1hr. If you took 7hrs I am sorry to say that you need to revisit your build and/or driving tactics. Also, get a friend with a suppressor to take out the glut if you don't have one.
    Upgrade Pirates is not as fun as Battle Pirates

    Forget the 128's ... do the 130's ...  Kix likely thinking everyone doing 130's and if they do a 128 they get 3x the points ( 10k bonus after doing a 130)  so ...  damage of 3x what you get in a 128 gives you the same points / damage hr.    ... I don't think this is a good strategy but it is another way of thinking about it and likely where they are coming from since they want $ / point earned.  

    No matter how you look at it .. the damage in this 'catch up' event is ridiculous even for a coiner with a GM on his fleet.

    Well after doing 130's for an hour I had 63k points. That was enough to claim new flag. Not to bad really. So another 4 hours of game play over next 3 !/2 days I get everything I want. So thinking this way the event is fine. Plenty of time to get all you need. 1 hour a day grinding 130's minium is going to get you 240k points about what you want. do that 4 times a day and slow repair between will net you 240k points a day and almost 1million points.

    Everything in this event is over the top damage... smh .. Kix crew has lost their minds for a "catch up" event with 7 to 12 hours damage for 1 target.. I think not....

    130 prep out glut with a suppressor. Then kill rest with Silverfish for about 30 mins repair to fleet. Easy enough. If you do not have a suppressor you can get one from deals(Have one now for 69 gold) also you get 500 points for it or have a buddy prep out glut. If you have neither silverfish our suppressor then yeah you going to struggle.

    HEY MODS! I will repeat my request since the first was ignored, where are the Proto Appolo upgrade tokens listed in the event briefing that are not in the prize list? I only need to get one last ship finished, would be nice to see it corrected!  Only has upgrade build tokens.

    OK! My bad, I see that it was upgrade build token not kits, which still makes no sense to have one and not the other!

    worst of the worst..  6 hr repair on Preas per target..  and a new hull "required" for the next raid.. + upgrade kits ets...  how does this allow players to "catch up"?
      This is just retarded.....

    I am usually able to do the Supressor prep for zero damage, so if you don't have one ask online.  Most folks will help you out if its no damage to their ships!

    Whats really stupid on kixeyes side is 
    1) If they call it a raid we get half repair time.
    2) If it's bounty we have 2 repair slots in dock.
    With Pillage we just get boned With high damage and excuses.

    You can do Pillage without doing the 128s, if you have a Suppressor and a full Silverfish fleet.
    It's 4:20 somewhere!

    the idea of pillage is a catch up yes? but you need 2 fleets and a 3rd supressor so that makes 3 fleets, hmm, what are we supposed to be catching up with - coining, ah yes, and he damage in the 128 is awesome, hoping for even more coin eh, maybe i'm missing something, ah yes the day tokens for upgrading the pegasus, cant find them anywhere, since you force us to not use the foundry or retrofit lab to upgrade our ships for the raid, ah, yes more coin grab, there seems to be a theme here, but let me ask you this, when you had 4x the amount of players playing this game, did you get more revenue? happy players = happy spenders (which means you all have secure jobs), unhappy players = losing players = less revenue = job cuts, oh yeah you've already had a lot of those...... 
    seriously you know how to make the game good and attract more players - invest in that and you invest in the games and your futures too,
