    So the new torpedo is not a raid prize we can buy? its only for players who have a full flagged Pegasus fleet who hit the top target set and get shards? or did I miss something?

    Perhaps I am wrong but if this is a Siege cycle why is the top set for Assault hulls and even more only the very latest ones?

    The assault upgrade token doesn't work on the peg flagship.  I feel like I'm owed a replacement for the upgrade kit that I wasted for canceling the upgrade due to the token not working.

    So after  all the time we have had the praetorian  and actualy being able to do the  targets fairly free.. we now have too UpGrade Two  fleets  so choose between Raid and FM ,,  How much do you think you can screw out of this game? gettimg way too much ,, Like i stated before  i do not know any manufacturer who would sell you a ,otor then turn around and say by the way you need to upgrade your car  van tank whatever before you can use it ... Getting to be a pain in the rear end  with the money grab for a supposedly FREE GAME

    I think they are also in conjunction with the HTML5 switch making BP a pay as you go game.

    They are and seem to be systematically pushing out the low to non coiners as they don't give them any benefit to the game ($$$ for them) and keeping the whales which as we know provide their pay checks.

    That being said this hasn't been a free game for a very long time, and my opinion, especially of late with ALL the issues, changes, nerfs, readjustments I couldn't justify spending any money on this for those reasons as well as the ones stated above.

    Derpythecow is trying this raid with his fleet at U0,

    in an attempt to prove that upgrades are not necessarily needed for raids....it will be interesting to see the outcome of this...I know I will be watching with interest.

    So now there are multiple types of upgrades?? Have you not head the screams of the masses that we HATE the idea of upgrades in general. Back to two fleets? I will reserve final judgement till I see how the targets go but right now you are getting a solid *facepalm* from this pirate.
    Upgrade Pirates is not as fun as Battle Pirates

    Prize List Designer made an error...
    Unless you really wanting to give 5 hulls out for this price, then by all means.
    Probably the right price given their current worth, but thats different story.

    base level means nothing
    Actually base level means everything.
    If someone has managed to get to level 98 and still doesn't have the fleet / fleets to at the very least compete to a reasonable level in this coming raid, it just means that they have chosen a path that hasn't prioritised raid fleets.
    Thats entirely their choice, but don't then come on here moaning that they don't have any fleets capable of doing the raid.

    Priority's should imo always be,
    FM fleet = gets you the tech and build tokens = a full fleet ready for the 2nd raid of the cycle = new hull + weapons for next cycle.
    Raid fleet = latest tech etc
    Base Defence fleet
    Base attack fleet
    The last two gain you nothing worthwhile but are a bit of fun.

    Forced upgrades? its been a long while since I have been a new player.
    In my experience, the main reason players jump up levels, is because they upgrade buildings that are not a priority, they build base hitting fleets and go and hit bases.

    As a new player your only priority should be building a reasonable FM fleet and the associated buildings that allow you to use them.

    Whilst base hitting is fun, its also what causes most new players the biggest issues. I know, a game promoted as a base hitting game, but by playing the way the game is promoted, just fcks you up for the future.

    In case you all haven't noticed, we haven't heard one word from our beloved Kix Rep.  That should pretty much say it all, they don't care what we think/feel, can or can not do.  I expect to see the leader board with a 3 million total.  Today.

    this **** is bananas.

    pumped so much time into a pegasus fleet, but without a flag that was released days before raid, and no lower tier targets for it, theres nothing to hit.
    Between the insane amounts of upgrades and time to build/upgrade vs longevity of a fleet, i just cant be bothered anymore kix. no fun: no players

    So been away for a while, come back and sweet a raid...

    Look at the targets, and what do I see, targets that can only be ht by certain hulls....ok not that new, only thing is I don't have any of those hulls....

    Then in comms, I find out that the lower tier targets can be hit by any fleet/hull - sweet I say, grind out some points on the lower levels and get me some newer and better hulls.

    In I go with my gifted Bat fleet, only to find it is useless! Yes I know a skirmish fleet vs Siege target not ideal, this is definitely so!!! I didn't do any target damage, but received 20mins of damage for my effort.

    Guess from my point, I can't catch up, or better yet get anything from this raid, so off I go again. This time I think, will be the last.

    Enjoy the raid for those of you that can actually get points.
