    Dear Swag,

    1) Your inbox is full.
    2) this is the message right now - top of the FB page with BP
    "Base Invaders starts tomorrow! Output Relocation will be unavailable until the end of the event."
    and I guess it should be
    "Base Invaders starts tomorrow! Outpost Relocation will be unavailable until the end of the event."
    Your happiness is our primary objective and everything that we do to improve the game is aimed at increasing it.

    all go to sleep, there is nothing to worry about, game is just fine, you just need to change all your settings to reduce lag a bit, offcourse all the new players will understand that and do that at once to play this wonderfull game.

    I think he meant, 1 player is the attacker and the 2nd player is the player whose base is getting attacked by 1st player.

    im curious to know if the outpost will continue to exist after the raid or if this is basicly a test for true drac bases? (seeing how letting people work together goes and to root out any problems that may arise from it)

    also is there like a way to tell what blue prints u may get from the base? dose it fit the same scale as fleet lvl for salvages and mines

    Hailstorms had the retargeting turned off, so the antimortar salvos are only attacking the first mortar shell to come in range. Once destroyed, the hailstorms do not automatically retarget to hit additional shells in the same salvo, therefore making the hailstorms effective only against low-number salvo mortars such as fleet mortars which only fire one at a time (multiple weapons firing at the same time do not count as a "salvo").

    looks very awesome - too bad you can't fix some of your horrible screw ups before launching something new.

    The very first Base Invaders event is starting soon! During this event the Draconians are stepping up their campaign to colonize and crush the sectors currently occupied by the Forsaken. Using the resources gathered during the last four Revenge Raids, the Dracs will start construction of their mighty war bases. Expect Draconian construction sites to arrive quickly and be very well guarded. Count on their best fleets and heaviest defense platforms to be deployed as they seek to delay and deter any Forsaken response. They are highly organized.

    But in their hubris they have underestimated the Forsaken yet again. Incomplete Drac bases have only a tiny fraction of the power a fully operational base would have, which gives the Forsaken an opportunity to strike. In preparation for this very day the Forsaken Council has been training their Captains to join forces and work cooperatively. Up to four players can now join forces in a single battle to create huge armadas of Forsaken ships - an unstoppable force to overcome any immovable object. No, the Dracs will not see this coming...

    So Captains, be cooperative, be brave, be victorious, and we will all prevail!

    Combat Rules
    This event is primarily a multiplayer combat event. To succeed you will need to group up with other players and attack as a combined force. The more players you fight alongside, the less damage you will take and the faster you will achieve the event prizes.
    • Quota and leaderboard points are awarded from the damage you do to Drac base platforms and ships.
    • Looted resources no longer count toward quota and leaderboard points.
    • Draconian bases are numbered like player bases. They are also level locked like player bases. Which means that you can only attack Drac bases within +/- 5 levels of your level.
    • Loot is given equally to all players in the same battle whenever any single Drac platform or ship is destroyed. The more powerful the Drac base the more loot is given from destroying it. Players will be able to over-loot up to 5x just as when attacking player bases.
    • Up to four players can be in combat against a Draconian Outpost at one time.
    • Battles are 'rolling' which means that players can join while other players are already in combat.
    • A yellow glow around a Draconian Outpost means that it has less than 4 players attacking it, and you are able to join the battle if you so choose.
    • A red glow around a Draconian Outpost means that the maximum 4 players are already in combat and you cannot join.
    • Only Draconian Outposts support 4 player battles. Salvages, player bases, etc. are still single fleets, or a maximum of 2 players.
    • There is no Friendly Fire! You cannot attack or damage other players' ships while in combat against a Draconian Outpost.
    • Each player can only have 1 fleet in a multiplayer battle.


    Prizes
    Due to the epicness of the event a suitably epic prize has been garnered. The blueprint to the largest Draconian ship to date, the mighty Dreadnought, has been found and will be given to the top 4 players in each sector. Not the best 4 player group but the best 4 players. Nevertheless, grouping up with 4 other players will lead to less damage to your ships and quicker progression in the event.

    Please note, leaderboard/quota points are generated from the damage done to Drac platforms and defending ships. Looted resources no longer count toward leaderboard/quota points.

    Sector Prize: Draconian Dreadnought Hull for the top 4 players. 8 Weapons, 4 armors, 4 specials, 13000 total weight.

    Quota Prize: Draconian Compound Armor. Reduces damage taken from all surface weapons.

    Extra Information

    Repairs time will be halved during the event and Salvage fleets will drop off in number as the Draconian channel more of their resources into constructing bases. Player relocation will also be off.

    Good luck Captains! Cooperate with your Forsaken brethren and show the Draconians the righteous power of the Forsaken Alliance!

    So... like other people have pointed out: where is the video with the ships the vast majority of players use? Where are the FFs? the Levis? the Seawolves? or even the BBs? Why are there only ever videos with the biggest and most advanced ships?

    Swag, if you want to be an effective community manager and pretend to be one of us, then use the more common ships for these videos. Show us what we can expect to do, not what most of the players can only do in our fantasies.

    It will be half.

    i think it should be better then half cuz we need to kill the base and the defending fleets.

    Swag, will weapon bonus still have an effect on the drac base? for example... mortars doing base damage of say 300 against ships but 600 against buildings. will the drac base count as a "building" so damage multiplayers can take effect?

    Hey Swag, not to pester you with questions, but can torpedos hit the bases? Technically, they are on the water...

    While the submarine is vastly superior to the boat in every way, over 97% of people still use boats for aquatic transportation.

    1) If we attack the outposts with only 3 players and 3 fleets, will the share of the loot be higher? Eg: There is 10m loot in an outpost. 4 players with 4 fleets attacking an outpost will get 2.5m loot each. What about 3 players controlling 3 fleets? Is it still 2.5m or 3.3m?

    2) If a player brings in a fleet of FFs and just sits there and does nothing, will that player get a share of the loot?

    Imagine if the winners got the big fat ship... It would take too long to repair anyway.
    Many things can change in 3 years. Some for the better, some for the worse. I think I know what happened here...

    exactly. so if I join a group with my subs to take out the dracs while my team takes out the base, does it count towards my points? How are the points distributed? so a lvl 10 would get the same points as a lvl 20 hitting a lvl 15 drac base?

    comeone, answer the questions asap

    Since I'm right on the edge of the sector, can I go to an adjacent sector and join a battle there? Will there be any effect on my points or the resources that way?
