We are several months into this new feature with player owned mega-hulls. Many have built their gantry and their Hyperions. Given the amount of information available so far how excited are you this new aspect to the game?
Remember Kixeye, PLAYERS FIRST!

    With how long it seems to be taking.. I will wait another year or two and see if the fun factor that bort is claiming ever happens..  Should be at least that long before it's out of this beta mode.

    I think Kixeye have made it too much into a coin grab.  The limited campaigns they have run are not acheivable without repairing you megaship and that cost around $20 in real terms.. If they were to reduce the cost there may be some fun but as it is.. coin grab

    I like it - its a bit slow building them but great fun organising hits on other sectors nexus points with your alliance.  Mine isn't too good yet but i can support others with normal fleets and i reckon with a couple more modules built 'l be able to score several hits in a row, or at least complete the next tlc for the next tech level.

    Honestly i don't know why people don't like it or want to recycle it.  If you don't like it just park it on the map somewhere and let people hit it for free - it costs you nothing

    the only bit i really dont like is that the attacker basically has all the advantage. i think it would work better if the hyperions always entered battle face on.

    You can only have 2 rear facing weapons, so not only are you getting jumped by someone with allies fighting on their terms, but your weapons are mostly facing the wrong way too.

    Why don't you like it?
    Be the attacker then you will have all the advantage.
    Once again be the attacker and you will always enter the battle face on.
    The 2 weapons are like that by design.
    When you are getting jumped, the jumper is always fighting on their terms, deal with it.
    If you are getting jumped, you are doing something wrong.
    If your weapons are facing the wrong way, your build is wrong.

    How was that giving bort a bort answer. :)

    i'd say not very close.....

    bort answers are

    a) logical
    b) aimed towards balance rather than easy kills
    c) factually correct

    your answer was neither of the above.

    Complete money grab... make a new module you have to scrap any previous modules....you can not keep weapons added to a ballistic module (Money Grab)....   every new module will always result in all weapons scrapped from the old module... the old module can be moved to storage  but the new modules are far superior to the stored modules    Repairs....   another Money Grab...    example each module repair time... say 11 hours each...   if you coin repairs....    it is 10 modules times 11 hours or 110 hours coin cost....    but if you let it repair normally... it takes only 11 hours....

    I had my doubts about the mega aspect of the game from the inception.I see it as another mega chore,and a money pit for very little reward.It is those reasons I have yet to build it.If kixeye ever makes it rewarding I may reconsider.So for now my gantry sits idle.

    I just recently finished my Hyp (within the last week or so). Mainly i'm disappointed in how slow it is to move along. Also not thrilled that its so tied to the base operations when it was, i thought, to be more of a separate stand alone feature. I'm not clamoring to recycle it yet b/c at this point I have over 3months of time dedicated to just getting it built  but I'm hoping future tweaks improve things.

    Had it for a while now, can't hide it long enough to make new components before it's flattened by a coined one and I lose my components again. Given up bothering and just letting it burn. 

    Getting a sector to orange, hitting all those mega hulls and building one component taking 24 hours, only to have it immediately stolen is exceptionally tedious so screw it.

    you could have it well and truly built coin free by now. a money pit that costs you $0

    I can;t seem to vote but, realizing it's in beta stage - things seem unbalanced.  Defend a mega ship and you loose your bubble but I can take my mega and hit as many other mega's as I want and keep my bubble.  I think it has a future but that is a bone of contention for me.

    The idea of having a mega just seemed like another chore that has very little pay out in the gaming experience. I didn't even attempt to collect anything towards the gantry for that reason. Not needed for base hitting nor game advancement. I see a bunch of megas parked under drac bases. So it doesn't look very popular overall. Add in that the forums are ripe with people wanting to dump the mega makes me want them even less.

    Its a good feature but a lot of the problem is that people are building them without a clue about what to do with it. You can see this in many of the comments above. Like other aspects of this game, you get out what you put in. Its an active alliance feature, plain and simple. If you are not in an actively playing alliance you wont like the Hyperion. If you cannot get attack support from your ally, you wont like the Hyperion. If basic strategic common sense is out of your league, you wont like the Hyperion. If you cannot use the forum for anything other than trolling you wont like.... I think you get the point.

    No alliance, which is basically a gang mentality in this game. Since i have no backup, to really use and utilize the feature, i have no need for excess junk.

    Already had to clear out conqueror **** (war armor), to get tokens this week, so need no more junk.

    So when you repair your Hyperion does that repair affect ships repairing in your base or can normal fleet repairs be done whilst the Hyperion is repairing ?

    Lol bort,I am well aware I could have it built by now for 0 cost,got a bunch of tokens collecting dust too.What I mean by money pit is to actually stay competitive with it.Those mega campaigns afaik weren't able to be done coin free.

    Unless and until there are more incentives for owning or defending a mega hull I won't build it coin free or otherwise.

    not coin free to do the whole lot of the campaign first hit out.

    but coin free to get the rockets. build some then hopefully if they run it again coin free to get the drones ....

    But yes, everyone has a choice. But a lot of people seem to complain that they are behind, rather than owning their choices.

    Staying competitive doesn't actually cost you anything at all.  Being in the top 1% possibly does. Maybe the top 0.1%. Although for a hyperion, you can have it built blank and be competitive if you have ally members backing you up.

    I'm doing the Hyperion adventure to get info from it to post on my page, but so far imo it does look OK. i just hope that with these Time Limited Mega Ship Campaigns people don't fall behind too much :( For the rest kudo's because it's a feature i can do on auto and need to coin for ;)
