THE PYTHON COINSPIRACY

So Kixeye makes a new OP item, the Unstable Reactor, which makes suicide bombing a big thing....the new big thing. It's unstoppable atm and nobody wants it, but it's there...so everyone wants to have it. So now that we KNOW that the Python cutters equipped with this cold-fusion warhead disguised as a thruster engine are the ultimate FvF killer fleet,


Kixeye makes a BONUS OFFER that grants each $100 purchase with 3 python suicide bombers.


Here's the reason anyone who buys this is gonna be really disappointed. As soon as everyone spends their $100s of dollars buying up the Pythons, and then subsequently spends those coins on fitting and Mking up those Pythons, Kixeye will nerf the Unstable reactor.

People will spend real money on these offers...and then be left in a dark alley, beaten to a pulp and clutching their empty wallets. 


Yet another Kixeye mugging has occurred.

    While I don't doubt that they knew exactly how the addition of the Unstable Reactor would effect the meta, I doubt the python deal you are receiving is part of a bigger "plan".

    Months before the introduction of the Unstable Reactor, I and many others received tons of python deals back to back, in some sort of desperation to get us to buy coins. Python deals aren't new.

    Yea, it's more along the lines of kix wanting cutter spam for a long time now. It's lucrative for them and it allows mobile players or players lacking skill, to brute force victories. I've been getting python offers for months. Unstable Reactors just makes python cutter spam even worse / more appealing, depending on your viewpoint.

    There have been many offers like the $100 Python offer, in fact everyone here has mentioned they have been spamming that offer.  Also, after each Riot or event, you get a $100 offer for what ever ship you just won.  Nothing new, not a conspiracy.

    For anyone who still complains about spending money on any offer, please remember this is a FREE game!!  Someone has to pay the bills if you're not.  I'm not a hardcore coiner, but I have bought an offer or two (.  It only seems fair to support a game you like, otherwise it will be gone.

    What I'm referring to isn't that they have NEVER posted a Python offer before. I'm saying they are USING the Unstable Reactor exploit to get people to make a mad dash for them now. But it seems a bit late, they seem to have already nerfed the UR....at least in the base usage.

    For the record I've been getting the python offers constantly for the past few months- even in lieu of offers for other ships that I've either recently acquired or have had but would be more inclined to mark up.

    Once in a while  I get the popup for a different offer, however, that offer never seems to linger around- even when I got the ragnoarok markup offer (probably the only one I'd seriously consider!) it only stayed for a short time before getting replaced with yet another python offer that I have no intention of buying.
