    Low tier target req full fleet = ungrindable.
    Siege part is OK, same as september? raid.
    Tried top target supposed for nessus -> dead fleet 7,5h repair for 130k'ish points.
    Glad i've got Flagship before. Still doable 3-4mil points per raid.

    can we have shrike kits please, not tokens but kits so we can use tokens
    If You Have Eradicators you can do The 109's under Base Parts and it gives out 300K uranium and either Eradicator Tokens or Shrike Tokens.  Mostly Shrike

    Whats with the prices in the prize list?  Manticore build and upgrade tokens are the same cost as the saturn and nemisis and yet the manticore is a year older. Also why are there NO shipbuild tokens for the pegasus in the raid or any generic shipbuild tokens?

    .......It would look nothing like this. 

    IMO the 130 and 132 targets are the most boring targets yet. 

    Plus, I store GM crews for the raid, to make it more cost effective and because how long each target takes 4 million is around the best you can achieve in the 1.5hrs given for the crew. 

    This game is supposed to engross the user and ease coins from them, I am not seeing that. 

    On top of that all you are offering as prizes are upgrade tokens - to cover newly invented lvls (X1) and an Inceptor.

    I am sure there will be other opinions but I for one am far from entertained.

    I would like for KIXEYE to explain to the world, why the A set in the current raid is being penalized, one by having three targets when all the other sets only have two, and second why the set completion bonus isn't double anything, while all the other sets are,  It is just that you truly want the mid level player to give up and get out of your hair?

    It definitely seems like we are being penalized for using Dragoons.

    And just for the record....Yes, this is a total BS tactic to inflict massive damage when your fleet gets stunned directly in front of the Mercury throwers. 

    Not once mind you.....but several times throughout the target.

    So I just upgraded my war peg to U3 and am noticing that more damage is now focused on it (the rest of the pegs are u2/u1). I am guessing that priority targeting now includes upgrade levels? Anyone else seeing this?

    Also note they have turned the damage up a bit lol
    Upgrade Pirates is not as fun as Battle Pirates

    Wow had so much fun hitting an 82. You have lost your minds, if you ever had any. I had hopes the new owners would clean this **** up but nope. Basically your game sucks.

    Decent event. Damage levels are very reasonable. Targets can be broken down quite easily. Only real criticism is the time in target is a bit long but cant have everything. Much better than i was expecting.

    It really should not take 15-20 minutes to do an S set.  Seat time for this raid is terrible.

    I think the amount of people out hitting bases is great and fun but also  says something about how much effort is bein gput into ignoring this raid.

    I think part of the problem is its not players intentionally ignoring it; its they just don't have the fleets for it. If you don't have a pegasus fleet built then its a slow boring grind. Even IF you have a dragoon fleet and not the pegasus, the points to damage is just not worth it. Some newer players don't even have saturn or nemisis fleets so they are left trying to grind with the free erad fleet that some got. And thats another part of the problem; even if you do have a good fleet, with all the grinding the game now requires; ( raid, bounty, pillage, 3 FMs a month) some players just can't be bothered with all the grinding. Some of the targets are not too bad IF you have a good fleet that you can hit a couple targets for decent points and slow repair; but for the lower lvl players that can't do that, its no wonder that they give up.

    In my sector only 17 have over 10 mil; and 51 have over 1 mil in points.

     In my sector only 12 have over 10 mill points and 42 have over 1 mill.  Still a few days but it's a long slog and the S set takes up a lot of seat time.   Not surprised that points are so low really.  The cost of blitzing is just too high to even contemplate. The cost of the upgrade tokens is OTT for something that has become a necessity in the game and this needs to be looked at by Kix.  The bonus in the 80 set is so not worth doing for the damage inflicted by the 402.  This is not an enjoyable raid and slow repair is the only way to go for me as the boredom of doing just 2 x S sets at a go is about all I can bear of it - lol.

    There really isn't any excuse for players (including "newer" players) not to have a pegasus fleet. The Hull was offered in a tlc that could be done with the free Kix Saturn's. Tech, vxp and build tokens were also offered in that tlc. With fm tokens and real time you could have had 4 hulls built and ranked capable of doing the s sets. My first experience of events was using seawolves for 4 days on insta repair. Im sure you were around for that too. I didnt expect to be top of the leaderboard and I wasnt given free fleets that could do the top targets. Newer players have never had it so good.

    As far as the grind goes, the choice is the same as it always was. Put the seat time in or coin. You really cant put this on players not havin the tools.
