    raid is a joke, plain and simple! tried a 47 and this ships do about 80 mph! You can keep your prizes kix because nobody going to be around to use them! Def increased the difficulty not lowered. Bamboozled yet again by kixeye, what they are actually good at. I'm out not for me! Haven't coined in ages and will most likely never coin again! Falling so far behind it just seems like not worth playing anymore. Too much too fast and more so too expensive. Not going to drop a small fortune on a game that is dying quickly. Have fun with ur whales cause only people u will have left soon enough.

    Kixeye you are just too greedy. Period. I can't believe you think this is fun for us. You are killing this game, not us. Now there is no gray area there. Wake up.

    We are aware of issues with battle servers at this time. Our team is currently working on a hot fix. Thanks for your patience. 
    What about the difficulty? Seems its harder than last time judging by some of these comments? 

    Come Roosty, give me some answers to me and the fellow Captains ;)

    Must say, I was looking forward to it when heard difficulty was less but seeing these comments is making me look forward to the beer I shall consume in numbers tomorrow evening...come on Roosty, give me some hope for this evening. 

    Thanks :)
    From what I've experienced, it looks like the best value for hitting may end up being the Elite campaign. If you can co-op with other players for the 2nd campaign, that may be helpful as well.  I'm in the Siege campaign and found that UAVs or missiles work best for the first 1-3 encounters and either Hellstrikes with Inferno Rockets or long range missiles are best for encounter 4 and 5. Mastodons, Kodiaks, MCXs, etc

    Take advantage of stationary targets by preparing your approach. The closest target is not always the one you should hit first, I've found. 

    For the Elite, I find that taking out the guarding fleets before the outlying turrets is best. Then, skirt the outer turrets before charging the middle platform. 

    Good luck, Captains!

    looks like there are only 8 people in our sector doing the raid so far, I won't be one of them. Raids are quickly becoming a thing of the past for me, the ridiculous difficulty level means I have no chance so not going to even try. Whoever came up with the last few raid formats needs to be fired

    This raid is ****, I can barely damage the reavers with a full v2h fleet with 3 seige z missiles each and running wolfpack crew like wth tune your resistances they shouldnt be **** near immune to damage, kinda defeats the purpose

    S.O.S. Same Old Shiz.  I understand making money. I understand that raids should not be gimme's. I understand that raid fleets will have the latest tech on them.  But cmon really! The best range Kix allows us is 106 missile and these raid fleets are getting at least 125 range, maybe 130. How do you think I will react to this Kix, spend coin... WRONG!  The raid fleets should have the SAME technology available to all, even if it's the best out there. Fine. But not tech that NO ONE else can win or buy.

    They are always aware, they just don't care. 

    Hey that rhymes! Oh yeeeaaah!
    I think they do now,  the question is as I said earlier they are now in the position where they have had to roll the dice and dish out high damage in the hope of getting coins.   If they go the lower damage route the economics I think just don't work.  Personally I don't think it's a laugh fest there,  there has to be concern amongst the workforce.

    I have my Stealth Systems at R12 and the sonar on the ships, not the ones with thermal, can see my Hawks before i even get into range of my B torps. WAY TO GO KIKEYE FOR TAKING AWAY ANOTHER WAY FOR US TO DO THE RAID CHEAP. You all say in your Motto PASSION BEFORE PROFIT-- I CALL BS.
    is this another kixeye, going back on its words, they stated THERE WILL BE NO MORE SUPER SONAR. 

    but it is kixeye, more chance of trusting obama

    I think the days of looking forward to raids are done and dusted. I think myself, and many others, look forward to hitting drac bases, doing FM etc more than raids.

    When will Kixeye, if at all, listen to the people who put money into this game?

    Ludicrous.

    Your right Duck

    you put out brand new fleets with a repair modifier on it. This is like telling me you know your putting out something broken only your to stupid to get it fixed before it is due to be out and have to put a repair modifier on it. Due you all like doings things that make you look badly? Cause after 3 plus years of this you would think you would start getting somethings right by now!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and the new raid MEH. Fire everyone and bring in some fresh meat. You all have been stale for over a year now!!!!!

    I don't,   the folks in the trenches are just doing what they are told.   They don't have a dog in the fight in terms of what direction management wants them to do.   But,  they usually bear the brunt of the outcome don't they?

    Holy ****. This raid is IMPOSSIBLE. And seriously, another flamethrower raid? This is like the 4th raid in a row we are doing exactly the same raid. GET SOME FRICKING ORIGINALITY.
