    So it seems that everything is lvl locked. As a 57 I tend to grind out tier B. It does not look like I will be able to now. That is the main thing I would like changed.
     the listed lvl is the recommended lvl not lvl locked only the bottom targets are locked at lvl 57 kixeye will let you hit b sets or a sets if you want

    There is a discrepancy on the picture posted in the announcement thread and the ones attached for the Punisher. In the posted image, it shows 500/500 Assault/Siege Deflections. But on the attached images, it shows 300/600 Assault/Siege Deflections.


    Please ignore attached images. They are generally added while I am working on the post as placeholders, prior to final tuning. The images posted in the briefing are correct. 

    DOOM, why Rail Gun do not have accuracy?
    in another thread kixeye says it has an accuracy of 80 percent

    please for the love of the game...get rid of the LIMITED option.....for that many points give the BP NOT just 1 cobra to be used only once......one reason raid is not worth doing, let alone other repeat game issues,,,,,,,put in a ticket and wait for an answer after raid in done.....hull to be won????not worth trying for with all the new hulls out there......and don't get me started on build and repair times......REFIT dock...how many times do players need to ask?????????

    Well no tokens.  That's my raid done.  I'll just hit the vanguards and collect shards.

    Way to go Kix for reducing build times!!!

    Lots of begging for tokens.  The new hull and weapon are just ok.  Feels like a rehash of crusader hull.  I want to build this hull, why am I not more excited?  We should all be creaming to build the latest.

    I'm just happy D5-E has come around again, and I'll finally be able to get that firstly and foremost. I have the Drac Carrier. If I don't get the new hull, I won't cry myself to sleep, even though it could very well be a better tank. My priorities really are (1) D5-E, (2) Apoc Mortar, (3) New Hull.

    if im corect what i saw on the breifing the target lvl is locked to player lvl this time in other words a 80 has to hit the A targets or is it still like last raid where you got reduced points on B and c targets

    If the punisher has a 40% increase in range. What is it with nuclear accelerators with the new gun or arb? And yes I'm lazy

    Range would be about 105

    Nope 95....just like arbalest crusaders.

    Pierce range is greater. Personnally I think that's an overrated stat.

    By my figures if you hit a frontline turret at max range, the pierce will go over 180, 97 pierce range. this will rip up bases from the outside
    Pierce range on the new weapon is the same as the Arbalest.  Nothing to see here...
    I was referring to the 35 pierce range boost, by the hull. That is 35, so added to the 62 is 97 range on the pierce. If you hit something on the edge of the 95 range, that's about 192 range total counting the pierce. everything inline with that shot gets damaged. that is longer range than the executioners. In theory you could hit, them before they hit you

    only reason i would have played was for tokens, no tokens, means spending no coins this raid again

    All tiers are fair game for all levels.  I just confirmed this with DR.

    Your raid is done days before it's started because you can't have your own way? Put your dummy in and suck it up. They have said they will aim at reducing repair times over the next 3 months, not in the next raid.

    Rome wasn't built in a day, and this game won't be making massive changes in a quick period of time. Give it time.

    The fact you said your raid is done days before it's even started all because of no tokens makes me smile. Suck it up, buttercup.

    Nope, it's spread. which means evade does not apply. It also means that stacking ships is a terrible idea.

    This is not an accuracy based weapon. Ergo, on base defense fleets, it has the potential to force attackers to not cluster ships together. Which makes base defense once again viable if you can hit 20M points in the raid.
    all i saw in the briefing was the prize list with no costs.  has the cost list been announced somewhere??

    No tokens. Sorry. 


    Is this the new way things are going to go for the time being (unless a change occur). We have not seen any official decision regarding the continuation of tokens. They got removed last raid and we were told it was becaseu it was a hull raid. This month is not a hull raid yet again removed.


    Right now, they are only available throught ELite FM and FAT. Is this suppose to be new direction chosen by the BP team until further notice.


    Has the team decided to remove tokens until the rebalance is completed ?

    all I can say is, Please understand that : not everybody has the Aegis, so hopefully the raid is not based on People that do !
