    I used those "useless" juggernauts I won the first time around to win tier 5.

    They decided that the subs will be useless for this raid because too many whiner that dont have them are crying all over the place.  We won those ship, we paid for them but cant use them.   That's the way it works around here.
    I am in a hood like yours, Thing's ( toys), and people (players) get fcked over from time to time by the Bosses. Even tho we pay good money. Cheeky sods around here.

    this game is now broken for level 40-50 ... if you don't think so let me explain . level 60+ players have been crushing level 40 players for some time now with little problems BUT now kixeye has given them new anti-missile turrets so now their dredX fleets can go strait through bases without stopping. if you don't think so just wait it won't be long to see.

    what will they do next???? allow level 60+ to hit even lower bases because they won't be able to find very many level 40-50 bases anymore --- level 35's or maybe even level 30's watch out YOUR NEXT.

    this game has started to become a bore.... as is I play maybe twice a week now because I have found better run games to play.

    I will predict that after this raid there will be a lot of level 40's quitting when they see how little they can do against the fleets hitting their bases.... but lets just wait and see shall we ???

    Umm, the new Phalanx doesn't do much at all against Halos. If you are using shock L DNX you will most likely use 2 Phalanx 2 per boat to max your damage and armor. At 5 salvo and 50% accuracy that is 50 Phalanx salvo per fleet. At 50% accuracy (approximately) that reduces you to 25 Phalanx salvo. If you hit a base with 5 halo, the Halo shells will be 40. So that's 25 Phalanx against 40 Halo shells however, as Swag said in the video, "due to the high trajectory of the Halo Missile, the Phalanx will not be as successful". Therefore, out of 40 Halo shells, if you use 2 lvl 2 Phalanx per boat you will be killing roughly 10 Halo shells. That means 30 will still be splashing down. It is the equivalent of having one less Halo in your base. Not at all a game changer trust me.

    Is that really what you got from my post? Do you have issues with reading comprehension?

    A target ten levels lower destroyed not only a fleet that could kill it last raid but another top raid hull fleet with top tier tech to boot before going down. How is that a fair progression in difficulty?

    I just want to say thank you for the great event, I got done the first day and can't wait to build the thresher. I come here and see so many people being so negative towards kixeye, I have even had my share of negativity but bottom line is the FvF aspect of this event is so fun. Yes there is things they can do to improve the game but bottom line is play what you can get help if you need it. but the bottom line is you decide how far you go in this game. I had several white screens and lost a couple fleets due to flash crash, but I got 1 to 50 in one day. bottom line is I have enjoyed the event now that I have fleets that are made for FvF.

    this isnt FvF though... it is fleet vs armada.

    i dont mind being challenged but when KIX doesnt have to to use the weight limitation that we have to abide by and then stack us up against sometimes 20 ships against our 5..........seesms to me that their mortars are able to fire longer as we get closer than ours can.  at least when i sent in mine to test it.

    i will have finished all the tiers but wont have spent as much as u did.  the battle pirates community is so very proud of you.

    so..any advice on what fleets u used?

    I dont have drac cannons, Intel lab is at lvl8, weapons lab lvl8, nvl lab lvl9, raid prizes good for raids are battleship, D5-X, LC, and LCX

    Also got other reaid/mission prizes i can list if u want to know...

    Right now im thinking of banditng tiers 3 and 4 for the jugger, or beg some help

    Meanwhile, res situation going bleak as i dont have any ships to carry cargo with and although the 3' BS's, 3 LCX's, and 3LC's can haul enough res home to repair themselves, my supply will die soon and my fleets willl be so outdated

    I'm so pleased for you, you are a truly great player and I pay homage at the altar of your skill and fortitude, (and possibly the depth of your pockets). I wish I were so blessed with magnificence, I avert my eyes from the glow of your godliness. In all seriousness, anyone with half descent fleets can do the raid in a day flat if they are prepared to part with the cash so it's not really a fantastic accomplishment. Probably not the time to be gloating with so much venom in the air but good luck to you. May you be happy when they switch the servers off to service Vega conflict and your money dissapears into digital oblivion. True Story!

    What are you thanking them for? This event doesn't require skill it requires spamming fleets and deep pockets. This is a poorly designed event that is so obviously a money grab it is not even funny.

    You should try a 50 then,  that will shock you even more!   

    Since the last raid I am still building the same fleet, so the game getting that much harder in 1 month is a bit too much.  

    Give me a dry dock so I can build a new fleet and refit an old fleet, and I might be better for dealing with the sudden increases to damage from raids.  (but TBH its the constant crashes that cause me most of my repairs in raids).
    Battle pirates Raid 4 - 1st place.
    Battle pirates Raid 5 - 1st place. 
    Battle pirates Raid 6 - 1st place.
    Battle pirates Raid 7+ Yep I won the rest too.

    Last raid I took out the lvl 50 with the following tactics. Used a specially built SC (see attached) to use as a damage soak while the remaining ships fired from safety. It's the best build I could come up with within the confines of the ship's capability.

    This is a siege missile fleet and as you can see it has heavy missile defense and decent ballistic and explosive to cover bonus damage.

    Okay, I was able to kill the lvl 50 in one shot with this fleet last raid, without losing the fleet, after clearing all other guards and torp towers with other fleets. This raid I decided to stop at tier three. Earlier a 40 spawned outside my base and I thought, what the hell...might just go for T-4 just for giggles. My "damage soak" ship took 3 volleys from the Level 40 Nemesis and was gone. Now just WTF?

    How exactly are you guys supposed to keep players' interest when you make such HUGE changes from raid to the next? Why even participate to earn new tech if our builds we work so hard on are effectively "nerfed" from one raid to the next?

    And FYI, I lost my DNX fleet that is built for raids and just barely finished the Nemesis off. Like I mentioned before...just WTF!?
    I'm with you brother.  Raids don't feel important anymore and what you mentioned is precisely why.
