Just thought I'd share my recent experiences with Riot Events

Last two Riot events, I have been pulling the remaining hairs out of scalp trying to figure out the best way to farm the high level Vsec fleets. I checked the forums, Manni's videos (which are awesome BTW) and I have been practicing and honing my piloting skills.

Guess what?

It turns out that farming the little 27 Vsec fleets is more efficient...

Here's why:

Hanging out near the Vsec lanes "fishing" for the right level Vsec fleet is just as tedious and time consuming as grinding. Not only that, but one slip up or server disconnect would see an entire fleet wasted. I am what you would call a "mid to high level" player and the best I could do against a level 50 Vsec is an 1.5 hr repair time. However, against level 27, I can use the same fleets 3 times before going for repairs and worst case scenario my repair time would be 9 min.

In a half hour, I would net 50 000 pnts attacking the high level Vsec fleets. Attacking the low level Vsec fleets would net me 100 000 pnts in the same amount of time. This is mainly because the level 27 fleets are all in-planet and more numerous.

So do the math. In about 3.5 hours, I netted 650 000 pnts just by farming the lvl 27 fleets (Vsecs and Vega cargo fleets).

I'm hoping that one day I can farm the higher level Vsecs with greater ease but I just (IMO) don't have the necessary tech.

Next Riot event, I am going to see if my strategy still holds and try to land the grand prize (1 250 000 pnts).

    When I was a little base I used to get the ship prize by spamming level 27 cargos

    Check Manni's insta broads.
    I use them to farm 27 while at work and can't pilot, but killing ISC 60. you get 60k a pop, and you can finish the event really quickly.

    If you don't have a Mark V battleship fleet - you're really just a mid level player in my opinion. Just saying - base level is completely irrelevant


    Most of my Furies are MK IV actually but that is irrelevant when I am farming lvl 27 fleets for the Riot Events. I know the broadsword fleet is the goto build for auto-farming but I find if your fleet level is above 34, you can send them on multiple runs (2 to 3) in-planet without having to return for repairs.

    Insta broads are for skillless ****, the day that the broadswords health is buffed and they are no longer insta will be a happy day indeed

    And yet, the "skilless ****" will rank up the points twice as fast as anyone who has honed their piloting skills. That was the whole point of my post. Rather than take the time to figure out the best strategy against the level 50 Vsec and take manual control of the individual ships during combat, it was more cost effective to spam smaller auto-fleets and leave them on auto. We see this happening in CW too (as I am sure you are aware).

    Do you have NET II+ on your Fury battleships? If you do that you pair that with Vector, you should be able to kill level 50s with 0 damage.

    Strafe or Fusion?

    Midgard or no Midgard?

    Also heard they can be done with a solo ship?

    Look, if you can get net 2 and really any level of vector torp. U can effectively farm lvl 45 vsec battalions. Try this, build a high level venom with either lvl 4 rear or fusion 3 thrusters, no armor, no shield and . focus on hitting the highest lvl battalion fleet you can, while still having your "spam fleets" attacking the 27s. This method was how i earned the lance a month ago.

    I was on this very same boat im sure we all have, it was only a few months ago when I got my zeals fitted with vector torps and volatile fuel and a midgard with bombers, then my days of hitting 27s repeatedly and fighting for vsec near wormholes was over and now I'm happily farming 60s finishing riots in a few hours with insta repair feels like a huge accomplishment now that I think about it, you will get there soon too bud :smile:

    I have a "main fleet" of three Aurora Dreads and two Vector NET Venoms that I use to farm up to 50 Vsec during events. While I'm waiting for the right fleet, as mentioned, I pop back onto to the planet and tag 27s with my insta Rancs. Yes it's more efficient to farm planet if you don't have a high enough level fleet to hit anything in the sector, but this is ultimately the most efficient way. Hitting four 50s is nearly an hours worth of 27 farming.

    i could of told you this 2 years ago, i already tell my alliance but they dont look at the facts. also free repair if you use insta ships makes i a lot faster especially running 7 fleets. in events i earn 105k per 50mins and that's every 50mins consistant points. same with riots your earn so much from ittin 27s if you have patience and dont mind the grind it is a lot better instead of waiting hours for reps haha

    They love to call post NECRO cause they dont wanna hear it. if people are responding it must still be relevant maybe not to you cause it does not affect you. But you do have new players everyday thats gonna come to the same problems the next person has maybe you mods should understand that or close the post thats your job not to down talk the members thats un-professional

    This is an interesting perspective, but I have to say if you don't have a battleship fleet capable of taking out an ISC 60, you aren't past the mid game yet.

    Using a fleet of mkd cruisers or battleships it's even possible to kill ISC 65s with little to no repair. Netting you ~56k intel ever 5 minutes, it's significantly more efficient.

    Personally I finish riots up to the 1.1-1.3 million loot mark in under an hour, reaching upwards of 2.5-3 (for loot exchange) in around 3 hours. I think I'd rather keep doing that, but that's just me.
