    I could have put disliked, but that wouldn't really be fare. Its no ones fault other than mine, that I hadn't improved my fleets since last raid, and I struggled in that so its no surprise that I found this one almost impossible to do, without having to spend a load of coins.

    I wasn't impressed anyway with the prize list,well not enough to spend coins on them. So I chose to do some campaigns, I managed to get 5 x Harlock Tritons, yes I coined, probably about the same as I would have in the raid, but I think the prizes will be of more use to me going forward, than what was on offer in the raid.

    Never lose sight that this is a game, its not life and death!!!

    Long grind. We either needed an extra day or the points required for T3 and over prizes needed lowering, PREFERABLY BOTH

    This raid typed sucked, got nowhere to run or to gather your ships, because Kixeye thinks its a fun idea to plop your fleet in the middle of warring factions.  Let alone the dracs Reapers being submerged, while ours (the players) got to run like hell before we can be submerged.  Just way too much damage being dealt way to **** fast.  Yeah you can spam the warzones with cat preds and wait for the Dracs and Reavs to duke it out a bit, but that takes way to **** long.

    So for me this raid style sucked, haven't played the last three (includes this one) because of this stupid Bullsh** setup.

    i was on the fence. But finally went with like vs other.  I am so sick of grinds. but got 40 mill and was able to help alliance members get some good stuff so worth it.

    40 mill for any hull is just stupid stop that

    New indy negates sub, but hopefully they will fix reduce range to 40 or something

    overall all though, i would rather have 4 hard fights, that come out to the same points as the 15 sets of A i just did, then sit through 15 sets of A's

    hard does not = frustratingly hard. Kixeye struggles mightily with balance. 

    time spend on the raid was around 18 hours.... thats too much of my weekend.

    As with the previous 3 raids I chose to sit this one out. After spending over $6K on this game in 3 years, I will no longer continue to provide money to a company that refuse to listen to the player base. Poor customer service, total disdain for the players, lopsided game events, increased build and repair times, and totally out of line costs to coin a single boat have resulted in my refusal to provide any revenue to Kixeye and this greed fest that BP has become. I keep hoping that enough people will stop coining and/or playing the game to bring about the promised changes from Dec of last year!!! Buils and repair times for upper fleets need to be slashed !!! What fun can you have when you get to play 5 to 30 minutes and then deal with 1.5 to 2 days worth of freaking repair times ?!?!

    It seems Kix was giving out the C-level targets with an eye dropper on this raid. I searched for hours to find targets. There's no excuse for that other than Kix wants us hitting targets over our heads to coin coin coin coin coin coin coin. This raid was annoying for that reason, and there was a lack of interesting prizes in my opinion.

    The raid itself was fine. What was not appropriate was the price of the prizes. I mean, come on....

    Very repetitive. I used cudas all the time, so kept me on my toes when doing tier A. Didn't have time to help friends - played about 4-6h day for all 4 days just to get points I needed. Thought phantom nighthawk was overpriced given the fiddling that needs to be done to speed match with existing sub fleets. Can't always have cake and eat it... So will say I was ok with raid. 60 m without coin... Complaining too much would not be right in my situation...

    I picked Other since I was traveling much of the time and couldn't play but then tried to get busy on the last day - the biggest frustration continues to be the unstable game platform.  When you spend 40 minutes refreshing and trying to get the game to load, it gets old fast.  dropped $10 and would have done more if I could have played the game. ....

    my view on this raid is that it needed ALOT!!! of work lots of glitching (rangeing from lost connection to freezing to all out mayhem with shost going everywhere and ships sliding across the battle field) I saw very little tier C battle zones and as you cut there points it made it very hard on lower/or less developed players unless the coined like crazy or got ALOT of help from others.......my suggestion for fixing do raids bimonthly there for more r&d can be put in to the raids making hopefully a better product. Larger number of targets for all tiers and don't cut points or cap ..also this next idea may not be popular with some but do like you did with dredge fleets prevent higher players from attacking C's with level limitations.... 

    I hope u take this post into advicment...

    Kixeye might as well change it's name to Zynga 2, it costs more money to play their games that it ever has to play any Zynga games

    ever had  a problem where you log on and someone is hitting your base, and wanted to view the world map while it happens? try this.
    1/select leadersboard.
    2/select player's medals.
    3/select any player there.
    4/select "find base"
    that may or may not take you to world map.

    put some sort of towwer next to your base just like the campaings and make the trargets pop inthere so nobody can rob one of yours and you can select what you want to hit, should be not too difficult to do that, main issue is for most players finding the dam targets they actually can hit, if kix took that out of the game, raids would run much smoother and no need to search an entire sector for the one you need to finish a set

    40 million for a hull.   This game is truly separating players every raid,  The heaviest will be the only ones left in this game soon enough,  $50 a raid not good enough anymore.

    Don't suggest that. They did it in War Commander. It was the same as the 1-50 grind, but even worse because you had no way to even gt help. There were also timed targets that wee utter death traps and you had 60 minutes to clear.

    Big reason I don't play WC anymore (and I was a high level for that game at a 34). They killed that game.

    Why is there never a bacon option anymore?!

    Our lives are just like everything else, matter. Though it can't be destroyed or created, doesn't mean we all live forever. Our lives are as miniscule as one of the atom's in our bodies, only a very, very small portion of the universe. So does this game really matter? No, but it might bring happiness to those who need it in their lives for the time they are alive. There's my little rant for ya.

    This was the second raid where as the bonus went up the points from the ships went down. 62 went from over 200k in the beginning to less than 50k by the time I finished using the same pattern and no I wasn't killing less ships.

    Nope. You are quite incorrect. For me the points in a 62 went from 216k in the beginning to a measly 216k. 


    Oh, wait...

    Nobody cares about what stupid ships you won.

    I have to agree their did not seem to be many C's when I bothered to try to look for them, but the lower levels in my alliance (below level 40) found enough to get what they wanted. Some that were here the last day and were close got helped with a B set to get them the Cuda.


    Which will help them in the next raid that has open water combat.


    I think that there was just that many people hitting the C's to be honest.

    You must have hit ones that were prepped by another. Because, while the points were lower compared to the June Raid. They were the same throughout from the start to finish in this raid.


    If they had the same amount of points from the June raid per target in the July I would have gotten enough points to get a 5th Viper and had a million left over.

    You do realize that SFB3 and Assault/Cutlass 4 missiles is at 97 range right? You can get that if you have the research done and the assault missiles.


    heck even Missile system 3 and cut4/assault missiles are at 93 range, or strike system 3 with put them at 93 range too.


    Hey want to know a real kick in the teeth?


    You can put Harden barrels and a ballistic weapon with a range of 49 (thud 4, D33-R, crossbow cannon) on a goliath and out range D92 too!
