First off, My Gambits are fully built, ranked and upgraded. Ill upload a picture of my build.
I did 5 targets blindly, I havent seen any videos others may have put out. I received 8 hours and 20 mins of damage with each run equaling or averaging about 1 hour and 40 mins of damage per run.
Im only speaking on my behalf here! Im frankly tired of targets being tuned and only later to be tuned down after. Im tired of Kix bullchit and not really appreciate the time and money Ive spent playing Battle Pirates. Not to mention the cost of buying limited items. The limited items really dont do much. But cost a hell of a lot of points.
Ive had many friends and frenemies leave BP because of the greed, Overpowered targets and the game becoming to repetitive. At this point, Im with others who are also complaining about the excessive amount of damage.
Now think how badly those without upgraded Gambits are faring
But then, Kix ASSUMES everyone has everything upgraded.

Looking at the leaderboard, within the first few hours the top tier whales (in Pillage) were 1M+ points, so blitz costs would be a touch more now that they would be when/if damage gets lowered.
But agree, targets are set for X1 rather than U2'ish fleets.....
My build is slightly different, I replaced that 3rd upgrade (forget the name) for hyper 30 for the extra ship speed, so it's easier to outrun rockets and morters and splash.
Just shy of 11 mins of damage
I have the four standard hulls at U1 (flag is still U0) but not all hulls are fully armored. Even so the damage has been pretty much equal through the fleet so I'm not sure if the armor is even doing anything
Will check Bill's path video and see if I can get it down.
Well after watching Bill's video I cut the damage by an hour, but think I can do better if I drive better.
(Having a filled out fleet would help too. )
