    Kix please don't nerf the points for old hives and reapers. Loads of players are still building and low level coining punisher fleets.

    To soon

    woohoo more bullshit. 

    They expect us to coin 6 decimators for the event, buy the mark upgrades and coin them. coin repair times ect ect

    i'm willing to bet that the stasis field around these hives are gonna be the same range as their missiles, meaning that any ship that doesn't have stasis resistance i.e. everything except MK 5 cutters won't even get close to the hives

    Playing VC be like

    ~SNIP~ when you can earn almost 600k points per attack.
    "...when"

    "...when you can"

    "When" you can't it's just a pain in the ****.

    Then, "when" you reduce the payout of the level 68 reaper fleets to 57% of what it was in the last event, it's pretty clear exactly what you're saying.

    One week after the decimator is released you hold another event and tell us we need the decimator or we'll only make 57% of the points we did last week.

    Gotcha. **** you too.

    Almost plunked down some money. Spent it elsewhere on a different game, as did most everyone I know.

    Kix isn't even trying to hide it anymore.

    Next round we'll need the new coined mk 5 alien battleship to get some OP prize. All these cutters you're spending money on won't work, and a new alien will mean a 75% reduction of point payouts to the new hives.

    You said that the Mobilization is 72 hours, that's from the 16th to the 19th. If that's true, then the Legacy Event (which is set for the 18th) has to be pushed back. Is it supposed to be 48 hours or 72? Most of the previous Mobilizations would last 48 hours.

    In game, it also says 72 hours duration.

    Well even more proof the Game is dying faster than usual seems content needs to be cut back a bit!!!
    Or: reduce build times, stop spamming the players with constant enemy fleets that are OP except to COINERS and #Fake Scarlett-We all know this isn't how you act where is our high res photo of xeno ships and or reapers? And why are you so inactive makes us slightly concerned this is gonna be another LXC "accident". OR Kixeye made a bot to replace their CM's now.

    As for mobilization store look forward to more xeno bps with energy and projectile resistance built in like the EX-plosive and AL-ien Xeno armor.(EXAL) in the next month or so.

    And I noticed some one talking about having to 'coin' a Punisher fleet. I've been building them since it was released, no coining needed, just planning out your builds.

    **** 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
    Kixeye Loves mega coiner, we are players, mega coiners are customers.

    Does "EXAL Heavy Talonite Armor 2" + "Skirmish resistor 3 X 2" 100% damage free from explosive weapon?

    We will never see 100% resistance of a weapon class. The resistance of the EXAL only applies to the armor points on it, just like Skirmish armor. Resistors apply to the entire ship health points (that also includes the EXAL).

    I have come to the realization that kixeye has monkeys for developers and all other employees are simply snakes, slugs, snails, anything that just slithers around and easy for PP to squash.

    So, we have an event starting for which are supposed to use coins to quick build new cutters and upgrade them to get stasis resistance. Yet, for some reason, the game does not offer me the Decimator upgrade packets. I do know many if not most have the offer on.

    This means that there are players (or at least one player) who are not offered a level playing field even if they chose to use good money to compete.

    + all resistances are multiplicative not cummulative so 50% on ship and 50% on armor = 50% on ships and 75% on armor

    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 not a "BUG", it's something "intentional" ... do you really still believe that kixeye would not notice something like this?

    If it is the player that takes advantage of a bug in the game to get items / events faster / easier, it is something that is punishable ... if it is kixeye who "sees / introduces a bug", it is not punishable, it is a rebalance ... I still remember That in a video said that the events did not modify them in the air ... band of liars without scrupulous ...

    Legacy event was moved back to the 20th. I've updated the calendar :)

    wow.... sad when a game becomes more fun to **** about on the forum than actually play.... and the event hasn't even started...
     
    Please be fun...
    Please be fun...
    Please be fun...

    but i'm ready for

    fleet dead
    fleet dead
    fleet dead

    no points
    to much to coin

    read some amusing posts **** about how bad the game is by  poor tormented souls who don't yet realize that it doesn't matter what they say or think. The fact they are passionate and care about the game and want to make it better only allows kix to grab em by the **** and milk it for all its got..... then ill post something that may or may not be relevant or even noticed.

    and life will go on....

    So, the fleets designed to be taken down with upgraded Decimators drop materials needed to upgrade Decimators...

    I'm sensing a loop we appear to be stuck in.

    The Barrage hives also project a stasis field around them,...

    This is where I stopped reading...

    As someone else said in another thread. This isn't Vega Conflict anymore...It's "Players of Vega VS the Vega Dev Team".

    What's next? Giving us a Xeno projectile weapon with a Huge DPS and then release Hives and Reapers with projectile resistance?

    When is this madness going to end?

    kixeye wtf are you doing. we want reapers from level 60-90 new hives from level 60-90 and old hives to have like a 10k base point payout with a 50k max payout so they are not 100% useless.

    So, you need a fleet of mk3 decimators to kill these but they will drop mk3 decimator crafting materials.

    LMAO. Good old kixeye. You guys are good for at least one good laugh every day.

    Sweet, sounds like an awesome excuse to spend money on something completely worthless! I was really on the fence about getting the decimator upgrade (even $100 only mks up half a fleet, each ship costs $25 in coins to build, more to refit so you'd have to buy it twice to have an actual full fleet of mk 5s) but I think that money is better placed elsewhere.

    Oh I forgot research time on each upgrade which I assume doesn't come with the package and probably costs upwards of 20k coins to complete all of them.. Seriously if there was even a little bit of value in this game I'd spend money but everything is ridiculously expensive! Remember when you could get map packs for halo and they'd be like $20 and add days of entertainment value? Instead of 5mins every day for maybe a week til the next thing comes out? And trying to get this stuff in game is just stupid. I hit 2 63 DC Vsec fleets at 4h repair each and managed to get... 50 armaments. Out of 2k required, plus cores, patterns, ship parts.. Who is paying the money required to play this game? You should be spending your money on a new house cuz you could buy one with what is required to stay top-tier in VC.
