i need to know if kixeye will be changing the new fleet rule or punishing those of us who have found ways around it in sector. i have a lvl four fleet that holds 5.4 mil res. i combine that with a lvl 7 fleet as guard, now i have gone through sectors 1200,1400 stealing their res and they had no way to respond because of the diffrence in lvl. i stole over 20 mil res from ppl hunting vegas unapposed. my question is this, will kixeye ban me for this kind of behavior. i know it is unfair and what not but i think its very cool that i don't have to work for getting res. i don't even have to hit bases just sit by a bigger fleet hunting res, steal the res and nothing he can do about it unless he has a lvl 12 or lower fleet to stop me. please give me your thoughts because i've enticed my whole sector to this tactic and will find alot of ppl getting upset with us. just thought i'd ask kixeye about their thoughts before i get banned for something they created.

sincerly,


wolvenoutcast   solo player sector 1300.

    haha  interesting idea useful for stealing from people you don't like but also good for protecting your  own cargo fleets.  When my apoc is  finished i might pull everything of 1 of my  cargo venoms except the two lvl 5 cargo and see how it adds up that or i might try it on exo or rancs

           Those ships are silly the people would need to be the size of ants to use them.

    id use battleships, the 3 things they are known for is guns, mass capacity, and important in this discussion, largest cargo hold. and since fury is better than venoms, im sure one can carry vast quantities of cargo in a fury fleet with only lvl 5 cargo

    I don't think you should be banned. It is a mechanics exploitation for sure, but there is a simple solution to that problem. Lock the res to the person that killed the cargo. Simple, elegant and also helpful. Most people after the introduction of BPs have forgotten what it is to gather resources. Basing has gone down, cargo opening for them is not an option. Kixeye should make resources tough to get and force players to play the game! You want resources? Go kill a base, go kill some vegas or if you like pirate action go kill the cargo fleets AFTER they collected the loot ;)

    the worst part of the whole thing i've had this broad set up for months and only this new update has made it a viable tactic 20mil res from two other sectors is nice lol once i get a better guard for it i will enjoy raiding other sectors solely for their cargos lol

    Zissis, nice low level chicken run fleet you discussed , used it to success already. However I think that cm9s bring you up to level 35. I'm 34  with all cm8

    I don't think the venoms are the way to go for now at least because the fleet level system for them is broken I made a post about it recently >>   https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/448647     In short tho each ship has a level of 1 when you place just two lvl 5 cargo on it but when you put 6 of these ships it becomes lvl 11 but use rancs with the same set up they are also lvl 1 per ship but put 6 in a fleet and the fleet lvl total is lvl3

    My cargo fleet has always been Gens, Fleet lvl is also 3 but I don't as yet have cargoV, still have to research it but I think I will just load up and be a pirate now.


    Also - this is a great addition, cargo is plentyful anyway - why not add a pirate aspect to the game - you want to get me back? come and hit my base!

    Since I have let everyone know about the new sport called "vega ninja thieving" and explained the build for it, it has been the rage in every sector. Keep up the good work everyone! :)
