    Pretty sure we were all pre-loaded into 500 brackets cause when the FAT started i was 94/500 and i had not even clicked on the arena at that point so, unless something changes your bonned.

    Do you or does anyone know if drone repair is still glitched? If not, I hope every last one of the cheating bastards gets banned.

    As players join the tournament you will move up until there are no 'Awaiting Player' slots available.  

    I have never seen a bracket end with open slots but I assume kixeye has developed a way to delete them all before prizes are awarded.  /sarcasm

    Your best bet is to beg two people in your sector to fight once in FAT for free.  Then they'll soak up the 'Awaiting Player' slots and you get your prizes.

    this is the first fat i have taken part in and i love it.never took part before because i just did not have the fleets for it.but with this new system i can build from the same box as everyone else .so more down to ship choice,build and driving skills.think the half speed repairs are great too.hope it stays like this for a while and i can have some fun again,like i used too a long time ago.i am a low coiner around £30 per month and this is great fun for my coin.

    Not many have an issue with the toybox idea (yes those that build arena fleets are pissed) its the fact that you cannot use uranium to get repair insurance thus limiting your ability to actually play in the event.

    I am not sure i have actually ever played a game that had the developers make it so dam hard to actually play in the event that they themselves have spent time to develop and code into the game. But if the amount of people saying they are annoyed because the game is taking double coins are anything to go bye this is probably here to stay which is sad.

    Kix this event could have been epic and i mean epic. Toybox with Repair insurance would have made this event so much fun and i would have been happy.

    A single well built goressaber if made fast enough can take that fleet build out single handedly. If you have a fearless blitzer crew sitting around they are especially fooked. Even if their drones repair for free the carriers do not lol

    Im running a Grim, Aegis and Gore along with 2 other hulls. The Gore is 24 speed and the Aegis is 26. Add that to the armor loaded on my Grim and my repair time is only 5 hours after facing one of these. As I said, I've won about 16 matches against these. My lone lost came when I tried to replace the Grim with a Frosty. I even won a match on auto against them.

    So much of this game doesn't revolve around players happiness. Its all about you getting pissed off or annoyed or frustrated and COINING as a result. They don't want fun. They seem to think happy players don't coin.

    Yup.. i only logged in to rep base, someone leveled my base last night, and i didnt even care... 

    Game is not fun anymore. with the repair specialists, repairtime has went UP! 

    Yea.. because, everyone needs to fit bulkheads, and that is alot more than the 25% repairtime that the specialists offered.

    So, fix what you promised:

    Buildtimes
    Repairtimes
    Refittimes

    now

    This is the first FAT I have participated in and I have to say, it's pretty fun.  I never bothered to build a fleet for it, and don't have legendary ranked ships, so never bothered on my own.  Love the toy box idea; it's really fun to instantly build a fleet and get to try it out.  I like that there are subs, drones, etc -- though I've lost to them all!  But that's ok, I like that all the options are there.  A couple of suggestions to make it better.....
    1) Do not have a screen that says you can "continue to play" while your ships are in queue -- then give people just seconds to join.
    2) Allow all fleet slots to repair at one time.  I would be willing to spend U to open fleet slots, but there's not much point when you can only repair one at a time anyway. If they all repaired at the same time, you could at lease play 5 times, then let them repair over night.
    3) I thought it said we got one free repair per day.  I did get one the first day, but then nothing.
    4) Bottom line is, this is a fun idea, but the repair time is major drawback.  I was looking forward to playing this morning, even woke up with a new ship build idea.  Built it, played once -- we mutually killed each other (ironically -- my opponent had virtually the same fleet), was expecting to get my one free repair.  That didn't happen, so guess I'll try again in 12+ hours -- that really sucks the fun out of it.  Two other fleets will probably sit unrepaired in other fleet spots for the rest of the tourney.  I would be willing to coin some, but 25 gold for 2 mins of fun is too much in my opinion. I never experienced the U insurance, but I would certainly be willing to spend U to keep playing. Or make it a flat rate for repairs -- personally I would be willing to spend around 10 coin to repair a fleet a handful of times to keep playing. I know others might have different tolerances.

    I don't know what you people are doing wrong but I've faced over 20 of these fleets and they all continue to launch.

    While I agree a well build fleet can take out drones, I do feel that in the FAT drones should count toward the damage done to a fleet, If you face some one with drones every drone killed or damaged should give you some points, if you have to kill it like a ship then you should get points

    I kind of like the toybox.  It gives me an opportunity to try out different ship builds without having to wait 20-40+ days.  Even if I don't spend any Ur or cash, I can still run a fleet every ten hours, which means I can still play around with the builds a few times over the weekend.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a co-op event using this system.

    The drones are another issue. I am amazed at how Kixeye is permitted to put out such rubbish then expect all players to highlight the rubbish and problems. Is there no product liability law in the USA against this?

    Overall I think this FAT is an improvement over the old version.  I think maybe you should also have a prize for the top few people in a bracket for win to loss ratio so that both the best players and the best coiners can get top prizes but overall I do like the new format.

    Last 4 matches today - every one pinched at start with radar runners crew - 4 different ppl and drones - getting very old - wont even repair the fleets now - was a good concept but should get rid of rockets and drones.

    You can learn to adapt.  It's all about your build.  If you have the right build, then even a large pinch is of minimal concern as you can greatly reduce it's effectiveness, and coupled with a small pinch on your end, you can render their use of it to nearly nothing.
