Morning Captains,

We've put the fear into the Reaver Horde with our last assault. They've now resorted to capturing unidentified vessels, and are holding them hostage in an effort to keep us from advancing upon their platforms. We must rescue these allies and crush the Reaver scum in the process! 

I see a Dark Tide arising, I see trouble on the way. Don't give up the fight, or they're bound to take our lives. There's a Reaver on the right!

Please keep all conversation regarding the event in this thread, nonconstructive and offensive posts will be removed.

Good luck out there Captains!

    I agree....I stated this in the event discussion thread....with no answer on why.  The 85's were fun without losing a ton of fleets.  Just good driving and strategy needed.  Kix needs to make a raid change and add them back.
    Those who can...do.

    Those who can't, whine and then call the do'ers  names.

    Ever feel like you are in 1st grade?  If not...read the forums.

    your answer is in your post...
    you found something that worked that was easy for you kixeye saw this as probably many players were doing the same and took this away thatd be one answer, another would be that
    this is the start of a new run on the reavers of the 3 to come seeing there are changes such as rescuing ships (not big ones) the nexus was tooken away because next raid a new boss target is coming and jan there was no nexus (was said by doom ) im assuming the reason for the building type targets being removed is similar to why the 85's were removed as there may be new targets coming but cant be sure thats the real reason they did it.
    Battle pirates-lvl: 84
    Sector:231

    War commander-:lvl 39
    sector:165

    Call me lost, for that is what i am.

    The last event cycle did not begin with the Nexus. This event cycle is similar. We have a new boss target on its way for future events. 

    Hope that clears things up.

    If you tell me it's the Kraken I will die a little inside because I've been neglecting to build my anti kraken fleet :(

    It is for the RAP spawns. They don't spawn right at the start, they are delayed a bit. Not like you would be able to attack them anyway though.

    is that the same for the rest of you over 60? didn't doom say the completion bonus was going to be untouched.

    We plan on having Dredge Fleets run at their normal spawning times, starting Friday.

    What i remember was your points for  the target would be penalized but the bonus was the same.  Likee if its a 700K 700K normally it would be like 350K and 700K.

    You need to let them leave to the side of the map , before you kill off the rest of targets

    700K is the bonus you get when completed, then you get some as you do the targets. Right now, you are at 790K when completed, not counting the last two, might get 900K for each completion. Meaning you need 6 of them to get the weapon pretty much.

    Actually it clears nothing up DR...but it does give me incentive not to play map targets this raid since campaigns will make it much cheaper for me, instead of hitting a really challenging target, I'll just grind out the 18 mill I need and spend the rest of my weekend relaxing instead of assisting to get the sector store open.

    no, just look t the campaign screen to see what your level brings the completion bonus to.

    Absolutely not true.  I just finished strike.  449K  Total.

    As I just said I got 449K for finishing all of strike.  Next, I free the ships and the timer goes to 7 or 8 seconds and counts down.  One time that happened when half the target was still alive.

    That is great! you are a 74 so glad to see it was not full bonus. 

    My reply was to the fact you said it was worth 700K, did not look at your level. Very happy that those that should be hitting siege will not be rewarded for failing to build proper raid fleets.

    I can do seige m8, more than enough proper fleets.  Why would I not do the lower one if it saves me money?  The issue is the game is not giving what it says it will.

    Benjar: in the list over campaigns, how much is strike worth? For me it says 280000. In the tower menu it says 700000 though.
