Attention Rebels! The Alien forces are mobilizing again and will be in Rebel space on March 16th at 3PM Pacific. You have 72 hours from event start to hit these mobilized fleets and earn points.

This Mobilization includes NEW Alien Hives as well as old hives and Alien Reaper targets.

From the design team:

Our new Barrage Hive targets are all about long range attacks, they are armed to the teeth with long range weapons but contain weak short range weapons. The Barrage hives also project a stasis field around them, so you will want to take the fastest ships and engines available to charge past the long range weapons into the low danger zone of their close range weapons.

Punishers Cruisers make great shields however Decimator Cutters are quicker, good luck with your strategies Rebels!

Co-op targets will feature the same 3-hive Alien Hives as the previous Mobilization, while the solo targets consist of 2 Alien Hives.

TARGET POINTS

Solo Hives (old) levels 40-55 will grant 1,500-5,000 points.

Co-op Hives (old) levels 40-55 will grant 3,500-10,000 points.

Alien Reapers level 60-68 will give 40,000 - 60,835 points.

New Alien Hives (solo only) levels 70-90 will give 85,169 - 591,003 points. These new hives will also drop Decimator Cutter Mk 2 crafting boxes (80, 83, 85) and Decimator Cutter Mk 3 crafting boxes (88, 90).

    Do the lasers and missiles have a minimum range?

    I would assume so since they clearly say "low danger zone in their close range"

    Yes, otherwise you'd just take more damage the closer you get to the Hive.

    **** Kix way to **** us over yet again, from 106,000 points for a 68 reaper fleet to 60,000, dont you understand people played this game because of the diverse range of viable  fleet set up's, how  is steering everyone towards using the same fleets interesting or fun, anyway we complain and moan about these things and you do nothing, laughing hard about us fools who keep playing, we should do a little test, us moderate coiners verses the mega coiners,by not spending a penny on the mobilization, let kix rely on who this game is now for, the mega coiner

    wouldn't be hard to get dosen't mean that thing should cost that amount of points. This is not a ship, this is an armor bluepribt.

    I assume the new Hives will also launch squadrons?

    And could you please fix the bug where net torps don't effect Reaper fleets?

    It's the most OP armor blueprint of all time, would you rather get re-usable credits?

    He's correct, though. Attacks (or damage incurred) per prize tier is way more important. The 1mil tier is a lot easier to get when you can earn almost 600k points per attack.

    @CM_Scarlett

    There is a lot of explosive specific armor and weapons lately.

    So, I have a quick question:
    Are the new hives dealing alien damage for:
    Laser: Alien/Energy
    Missile: Alien/Explosive
    Gatling: Alien/Laser

    I am assuming laser/gatling is probably alien, but I am really curious about the missiles. :-)

    Thank you :-)

    Laser: Alien/Energy
    Missile: Alien/Explosive
    Gatling: Alien/Energy *

    Well i get the alien resistance... but the explosive resist combined with dual resistors literally means a punisher will be **** near immune to explosive damage xD (not completely obviously but itll feel like it)

    just existing at this point

    The stasis fields on hives is lame. Makes our xeno cutters worthless if we dont buy craft for em. Also lame u greatly reduced the points of reapers. Did u at least lower the difficulty of the reapers as well?

    And just how many can hit that. Why not just come out and say mega coiner only game from now on?

    EXAL Heavy Talonite Armor 1 + 2 (Blueprint) <- This I can understand for going against alien hives and more

    The EXAL Heavy Talonite Armor is heavy weight armor when equipped to your ship, allows it to more efficiently absorb fire from explosive and alien damage.

    Level 1

    Xeno Division Only

    Mass: 1468t

    Armor: 3340 health

    50% explosive resistance

    20% alien resistance

    Level 2

    Xeno Division Only

    Mass: 2002t

    Armor: 4555 health

    50% explosive resistance

    40% alien resistance


    This is ok for farming alien fleets at ease.

    EX Heavy Talonite Armor 1 + 2 (reusable) <-why reusable? is it really game breaking if it turns to blueprint?

    The EX Heavy Talonite Armor is heavy weight armor when equipped to your ship, allows it to more efficiently absorb fire from explosive attacks.

    Level 1

    Xeno Division Only

    Reusable Instance

    Mass: 1201t

    Armour: 3123 health <-less armor then more 

    25% explosive resistance   <- this should be at least slightly 35% or 40%

    Level 2

    Xeno Division Only

    Reusable Instance

    Mass: 1468t

    Armour: 3817 health

    50% explosive resistance   <- and for this to be 75% or 80%


    this should help balancing it out of a strong resistor for using armor with no alien resistor and should be a blueprint since its an alien tech as well. lets make this tech useful.

    So, this is how it will be @CM_Scarlett

    We get a new ship, build it, then it becomes almost obsolete after the next event when the NEW ship is released? 


    It has been Seven days since the event started! And only eight days after the start of the event we are expected to HAVE a FULL fleet of cutters ready to throw against these giant, no skill, floating rocks!??!? 

    I underestimated you guys. . . Personally I always LOVED sitting at my computer trying to out maneauver and out pilot the old event fleets. It was a challenge: 

    - You piloted nearly perfect. You got minimal repairs

    - You messed up by just a little. Hellllllllooooooooo Repairs! : )


    My point being there is NO risk to reward ratio anymore. It's ALL risk with NO reward!!    Jammed firing arcs, infinite acceleration ships, SMART AI's, and the list goes on and on and one and on. . . ....... 



    Grinding was still grinding back then, but it was nowhere near as bad as it is now.  Hell, even if I were to be able to be online 24/7 farming, collecting crafting materials, ect. . I STILL wouldn't be anywhere close to a player who decided to spend even $50 on a crafting offer. 

    Why?

    - Pattern Drops are S H I T!

    - Core drops are S H I T!!

    - Aaaaaannd Supply runs are.... (drum roll) SHIIIIIIIIIIIT! 


    The game shouldn't even be classified as a pay to win anymore, nah. . It's now PAY to PLAY.   Unless of course you want to spend 20-9999(infinitely repeating) hours farming just to get a Mk. V pattern, or even a Mk. II if you're that unlucky bastard (like me) :(


    But why should my opinion matter to you any how, Kixeye. I know for sure I DON'T spend money on you guys anymore, I already learned my lesson   -_-
    A full fleet of decimators is probably not enough. Remember that hives project a stasis field. You need marked up decimators for stasis resist and the coin offer was released not 6 hours ago.
