    New Turret dissolved my Trenchers quickly in the 120 Empl Base. No chance to get past the Gorgons in the target. A bit over powered guys. The employee bases aren't even doable by the majority of players. They are simply too hard.

    Pirates, please note that we have made some changes to the FM prizes. Scroll to the bottom to see what's new. :) https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/777489 
    why have the everest been taken out of the fm? Players who cant get it through raid need an easier way of getting it so they can at least have a slim chance of getting FM Limited prizes which suck by the way 140 k for one prize amazing 
    I thought they had been put in the FM?

    I wonder if KixEye play test any of theur games as this is really boring killing the Piranhas in each base. No one really played the last Bounty so I guess they decided to make this equally as rubbish.

    I see in 3rd round of the new SHADOW AND FLAME CAMPAIGN that the following prizes are included:



    However we are still limited to 10 of  the limited conq armours.   Can this be increased to 15?   Many players have at least 3 Conq fleets and stripping off useful armours from fleet to fleet really isn't an option when each plate take almost 1 day to refit.
    Not to mention with the addition of U1 for both the Trencher and Hellswarm adding an additional slot....

    I have to say that I was actually excited with the Bounty changes and the new TLC's that came out.   That was until I tried them.   Nothing but damage.  Took 5+ hrs damage doing PP1 (on auto) for the 'Shadow & Flame' TLC with my X1 fleet.   Can't even image what the 'Cyber Strike' TLC is going to do.    Tried Bounty - took way too much damage doing the low level Kixeye base.   The damage I took wasn't worth the crappy amount of points that I would have gotten for doing it.     Looks like I will save my money and just do the FM.

    Hello, I would really like to know how  to get zealot. It is used for various things. I have gone from lvl 60 4 months ago to lvl 96, and have not seen the zealot offered even once. now 2 new tlc's require zealot which I do not have, nor do I know how to get it. Please support your new players

    You can use the Photon ECMs instead if you've got them built, I would not recommend stepping back to Zealots now. Keep working forwards.

    97s are doable for inta repair using small pinches. Just wanna ask WHY is the decimator cannons acting like they have priority targeting specials? It is only hitting ship 1, not the rest of the fleet. I thought priority targeting was taken off? Like they don't work how they are intended anymore; like they are not suppose to continually target the lowest health ship in the fleet anymore.

    It's possible they have Prio special installed, I know I run prio on my decis.

    Kix you almost had bounty as an enjoyable event and you had to take it in the wrong direction. Employee bases are so OP, even my U1 warhounds are melting and I've tried 5 different levels, the coining stop till this is fixed.

    You'll keep coining....

    You will not want to fall behind, and that is the aspect that Kix uses to ensure that you DO keep coining...you've already spent XXXX and you want to stop now????

    EDIT: It would be great if you did, and other coiners as well.....but that will never happen

    Ghillie/Kixeye-there seems to be a disconnect with the players more and more these days. On this Bounty for example, I can't defeat ANY of the Employee bases-none of them. I can't defeat a base with an OC in it. I don't have the Harrower or U1 Warhounds. So this also means that any player base that contains an OC I am unable to defeat them as well. Some of you might say, well you should have coined and built the Harrower. Sorry, I can't afford that, nor could I afford to get the 14 shards that were needed last Bounty and the 30 day build time needed. There are VERY FEW bases that I can hit that my fleets can defeat. I have Trunchers, WH's Hellswarms, but they are useless against the OCs. There is no way for me to gather points in this Bounty of any consequence. You might say, hit the Opponent bases. They simply don't pay enough points and cause just as much damage as the others save a guard fleet. Bounty is no longer a fun activity. It has become VERY EXPENSIVE and the lack of targets that I can complete has whittled down to nearly ZERO. I suspect that LOTS of players are in this same situation Having events like this where the participation rate continues to fall isn't fun for anyone. If you would make the Employee bases reasonable then many of us could defeat them and get the needed tech. As it stands now, Bounty is no longer fun in the least.

    Have only been playing 4 months, you cannot get stuff if its not offered or if you don't have tech  to get it
