I honestly have no clue how to prepare for this event. I'm about 2 days from finishing the level 4 upgrade for the tactical lab and haven't started any research yet. I guess it is time to build some arbiters and maybe even use the even to level up my Goliaths.

Any other suggestions or comments?
Yes, I'm back to playing this game. Someone shoot me.

    it says its a fleet vs fleet event so does that mean it will be all fleets in drac bases or out on open water nobody knows yet .. so how you prepare is take whatever you have and use it .. get some money on your credit caRD CAUSE AFTER ALL these raids are about damage and repairs which if you dont coin take forever..lol

    i think i will explain, leak and expose all the different methods you can use to win every prize in the raid without spending a penny. Day 1 of the raid i will make a thread with videos and a full guide of how it can be done for free. stay tuned.

    And if you manage to do that with forsaken-equipment-only it would even be useful to everyone.

    How I prepare for every raid where there's no info beyond "prepare!" : carry on doing what I would've been doing anyway. For a while I was trying to make about ten different kinds of fleets at the same time, so I have a wide assortment of ships (just not five of anything). Something is bound to be useful.

    I'm putting Lasers back on the SW. They did not make any difference on the bases in the BI events, but should help against fleets.

    Nothing...........Labor Day weekend here but they must get more cash this way thinking the 30% of BP players who work have it off lol Maybe I play a few days maybe I won't have to see what it's about. Honestly hope it pisses me off, trying to not play this game just waiting for the "epic" change that makes me recycle the base

    I am making sure I have my fleets refit in all situations, a instant repair thud sw fleet, cudas, 2 instant repair missile fleets and RA3 High health fleets as I am guessing they will want us to take damage with sfb3 missiles

    I'll be away a couple days so definitely wont be playing. The game barely works anymore anyway so I dont see the point. It doesnt matter what ships I have or have won if I cant use em to hit a base anyway. I already have fleets to kill salvs.

    How are we preparing? Well, in Sector 56 most of us are having extra S.O.S. messages and failed Battle Connections, with players form Africa, US, UK, Mainland Europe and Australia. Thanks for the extra practice Kixeye! :mad:

    well if its fvf combat then unless they make drastic changes to how rubbish drac tech auto pilot fleets are missile fleets will be very very usefull especially fast missile fleets like no armour wolfs or no armour scorps packing engines sfb3 and lasers 3. The reason FvF has died out in the current game is because its easy and boring. it takes me a few seconds to look at a fleet set up and then know exactly how to counter it. and im sure this new event will be the same as that. With kixeyes current direction im sort of expecting ufos and more magic wands. perhaps gandalf will jump out of a drac boat shouting you cannot pass and freeze your fleet in motion instantly.

    I will figure out the raid on day 1 hour 1 but it may be too late to refitt in time for it. Either way i will go out of my way to keep people from coining and try to help everyone win for free.

    lol Always gets me the amount of time, resources and money that people waste on refitting fleets JUST for events. If you'd build them right the first time there would be no need to refit and prepare for every single event other than to build new ships or upgrade weapons.
