    What does waiting on players mean its been the 1 and 2 spot has said that since the FAT has started and has not changed. 
    bawhahahahahahah 
    I think I'm getting the short end of the stick. Also when you use a crew it you coin they take more gold then they say it does to fix your fleet. I have had one fleet say 7 gold to fix when you coin it they take 14 gold from you double or triple the coin it say that it says to fix your fleet. 
    Think I may have to come to your sector for next Fat..... :smile: 
    I do hope you get the 1st place though....... its not your fault there are soooooo many glitches with the FAT this month

    Im wondering when they are changing the name to Forsaken Drone Tournament... All I face is monarchs with firebats

    They turn and run and im left with a 12 hour repair bill.... I have caught i few but i still got alot of damage... Really really boring

    build a gorsaber fleet I killed a full drone flt with 2 gors
    I have a question about the Gor. fleet.  I built a fleet of them and was expecting to be able to stay out of range of the slag throwers, but that didn't seem to be the the case, was that your experience?  I was able to kill the fleet by running in and killing the Monarchs.  I had just a smidgen of life left and spent almost 3 minutes out running a couple of drones to get a win, lol!

    Not sure if it has been mentioned by anyone else as I dont want to read through more than 20 pages of comments. But-Doom/Kixeye-personally I would like to see you take away the ability to use rockets during the arena-many players have no battle plan at all other than to just pinch your fleet-this to me is not a battle and takes away from the spirit of the arena. People that pinch are essentially cowards who can't do a real fvf battle.

    I cant say that this new arena format is either good or bad as its only my 2nd time playing in it however it doesn't seem to be to any ones disadvantage if all player's are able to select from the same options to build their fleets, One could say its a disadvantage not allowing this platform.

    Anyone else notice that your repair timer is counting down about half the speed of your crew timer? Hmmm

    Ships set up is near same ... some of you may spot the dif 

    They do have same drone units on them but why is the other drone meter missing ?

    Can you only use drone unit X amount times and then you need to build it again ? 



    This one ( on left ) did not put out any drones on its last battle .

    check that the drone module is indeed on it. if it is, remove and re-add it. that may ( or may not) fix it

    did you use the up arrow and mistakenly stop the drones from deploying?  I did this in one battle and by the time id figured out how to get them to deploy again i was dead

    may i ask kixeye how meany tickets do you get asking you to return the arena back to the first set up when it was fun ???   listening to customer "feed back" is key to making cash :) make this game great again you must take the feed back that makes scene

    1hr ship build tokens must go they are worthless  
    please please please open your ears

    So either drones are overpowered or they dont work :) I have killed all the drone fleets i have met with different fleets. gores monarchs and crusaders. If you are having trouble with pinches then you need more defence for it the same with drones. More choices makes the tactical picture more complex but not impossible. With instant build times the FAT has evolved faster this time than pervious times. The taktics change from day to day which i think is cool.

    This new format is great, I  built a fleet that i am just starting to build, what a great way to pre test it.

    Just to recap, repairs are at 50% but coining repairs still charges you twice the cost show OR is that issue fixed ~ I'd rather not experiment on a 10 coin repair and get charged 20..

    build a gorsaber fleet I killed a full drone flt with 2 gors


    That's what I did to catch the 2 I beat but I still suffered a couple hours damage even when I won which put me out from playing while they repaired... I only play 1 match before work and 1 match after work because i refuse to coin repairs in this coin grab... Other problem is I faced a couple with the drone crew and it was game over very fast or they had radar runners and large pinched my Gores

    My point was that previous tourneys I saw ALOT of different fleets... Some good some bad but it gave me ideas for future fleets and it was a lot of fun!

    This FAT is realllllllly lame

    I agree and they should also take out use of crews because if someone has a legendary crew it can be an automatic win (if they build their fleet properly, I have beat a couple DoS crews in previous tourneys and received a ton of hatemail LOL)

    Kixeye makes a lot of money in tourneys with ppl buying pinches and crews so it will never happen

    An interesting FAT battle result, both fleets were destroyed, EXCEPT one firebat drone from each side...by firebat had more health so I had the last ship standing..but as it a weapon and not a ship I lost due to having the larger heavier fleet ~ so last drone floating doesn't count lol

    I think Kixeye ignored us for making this F.A.T cheaper cause they needed to make there money back on all the man hours that was put into developing it. For that reason I will let this slide but if the next F.A.T is expensive like this and we get ignored again then I won't load any coins, and ill make sure I talk any friends into not loading any gold either.

    I just had a guy with a Phantom fleet who spent the entire match hiding on the edges of the map, then sank one of my drones at the end to win.  I don't who to be more impressed by; Kixeye for designing this thing, or the player who, given everything for free, will still look for exploits.

    I see lots of people wanting repair insurance back. The problem with that is it will then exclude lower levels that are not loaded with uranium. It would be better to have all repairs free but you have a limited number of battles.

    Tried to go into battle two times tonight, both times there was no opponent available, but both times my fleets had gone into battle without me knowing = lots of hours of repairs or about 40 coins (like I am gonna coin this lol).

    Considering the FAT was postponed from last month to this, you would have thought kix would have got it somewhere close to being right (naive statement I know).

    I don't like the subs being allowed into the FAT (fyi I use subs a lot day to day) but they make for a very boring battle.
    I also don't like the toybox, I would much prefer to see us all get the same fleets with maybe a few choices of upgrades, so that we are all on a totally level playing field. Then its all about who the best driver is.

    limited battle still comes down to luck of the draw. if you come up against 20 tough opponents you wont score anywhere near as well as 20 crap opponents.

    Interesting Idea Carl but i agree with Bort. You tend to get a run of certain fleets and often a run of players that should be outside your ranking group. In regard to repair insurance . A player can stock up on U before a FAT if they choose to play in it. It cartn be stolen like res could be when they were hard to come by and took frkin ages to get.

    Im really enjoying playing with fleets i cartn afford to win in normal game play and wouldnt have time to build anyway.
