    You'd be surprised what you can get when it is offered, even with simple things like the free fleets that everyone can get. 
    Work toward Photons, they'll be available in Pillage later also which you can do with the FM fleet if you've got it sorted. If not, FM Everests should be your top priority.

    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. 
    They do not!! Just drum up some new half-assed damage dealer targets and throw them at us to do QA on...... Once there is enough "feedback" and after the whales have coined/blitzed their points, THEN it will be "adjusted after feedback consideration and notes". Is the nice thing about the blue whales. They willing to pay Kix to be employees and bug trace events for us common mild coiners...

    Hi - for the little guys with Subjugators can you please temper the quicksand in the channels - I was doing a couple of the 81's and 85's and couldn't even make it to the centre of the base before it timed out - c'mon be real guys - not all of us have the latest and greatest fleets

    what a complete cluster **** this bounty is. Damage through the roof for less half the points. Bounty is normal the best event that you do but not any more. No wonder you are losing your players so fast

    ^^^ Correct, the OC's slow aura can NOT be negated with Tac Field resistance so therefor the 50% on the new engine should not effect the speed of the hull traveling through it. 
    It does however allow an extra armour slot to be opened while keeping the 50% resistance which is certainly a bonus. 
    The extra armor slot is all but worthless as almost all armors drive the weight total over the limit.

    Think I will sit this Bounty out.  Damage is out of sight and not worth the time or coin to do.  Congratulations GreedEye, you've done it yet again.

    For a reference on damages, here's the 118 done with a basic Warhound fleet and a 1 star crew.
    There's more videos on Discord (invitation in my signature) from others completing the targets for minimal damages. They're all different targets from last month with additional weapons and slight changes, it keeps things interesting. Once you learn to drive them though you'll find targets you like. Find the targets that suit you and smash em out, there's so many to choose from in Bounty and multiple ways to earn your points.

    @Archangel_1, I've just checked all of my conq fleets and I can make full T9 armour work on all of them. It's all about compromise and if  you're that close to weight and need to shift something to put more armour on then I'd look at all the alternative options out there. This is the joy of PvP and having multiple ways to build a fleet, isn't this what everyone wants?

    I've cleaned up a few comments from within this thread that had gotten personal. I understand it's Bounty and everyone's on edge but there's no need to go down that road. 
    Lets keep it on track shall we, thank you.

    Want me to take off the extra piece of Tier 7 Evade armour? Lol.
    U1 is all but irrelevant, I'm not using any limited armours and the specials are all Tier 8 and below. She be basic.

    The changes you've made to the Kix bases sure don't make Bounty very fun. So much more damage, from every single base, as opposed to ANY other Bounty before. Nothing left but to grind the opponent bases, and player bases. A big thumbs down Kix,so disappointing.

    Another failed weekend from kixeye all the new TLC's are way over the top for damage. This is happening every time anymore. Lvl 138 and I don't even know why I bother with is game anymore. I've got over 2800 coins on my account and I'm not coining this mess. Let the game die I'm tired of fighting with this team and how they treat their customers.

    Flash is going bye-bye at the end of the year, though. After that, it's HTML5 or nothing, and I want HTML5 to be working with at least the same features as Flash.

    (Speaking of, the range indicators in HTML5 were working before the 10.43 update; I'm not sure if it's a browser issue or an HTML5 one, but they haven't been showing up since then.)

    Well my basic non U1 WH fleet didnt get past the second portal before going to visit davy jones ? so yep my WH fleet is very basic LOL

    Fortunately i have figured out how to grind the lower level kix bases for map repair, well until kix tweaked the damage now its always just over 5 mins so back to base more time wasted .....

    Pirates, we've reduced the damage in both the Photon ECM and Hellswarm campaigns. Damage was higher than intended, and we appreciate your feedback and patience. Thanks!

    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 
    Hey there, I think perhaps you misunderstood the post. The Everest was added to the FM to make it easier for folks to get it. Sorry if that wasn't clear! :)
