Rebels!

Another Alien Decimation is upon us and the Aliens continue to ramp up their aggression.

This activity will contain three phases of Alien forces. The Alien forces within each phase are as follows:


PHASE 1
Unknown Hive Fleets lvl 40-55 (pts range 1000 - 5,000)


PHASE 2
Unknown Reaper Fleets lvl 60-78 (pts range 30,000 - 152,460)

Unknown Barrage Hive Fleets lvl 80-90 (pts range 243,936 - 382,329)


PHASE 3

Unknown Barrage Hive Fleets lvl 80-88 (pts range 243,936 - 324,008)

Unknown Barrage Harvester Boss Targets lvl 90-95 (pts range 550,814 - 728,451)

NOTE FROM THE DESIGN TEAM

  • The highest level target is a Boss version of the new Barrage (Defense) Hive that deals Explosive & Alien Damage
  • It's extremely powerful at long ranges, but is vulnerable to attack from up close.
  • The best strategy is to speed through its long range weapons, because it does significantly less damage at close range. As such, Cutters are recommended. 


All Phase 3 targets contain loot that is guaranteed to drop, if the following requirements are met:

  • Battle ends in victory (not a draw or defeat)

  • Phase 3 timer is still active when combat ends

Point payouts (updated):



Loot drops:

Barrage Hive lvl 80-85: Decimator Cutter Mk II Box

Barrage Hive lvl 88-90: Decimator Cutter Mk III Box AND Xeno Cluster Missile I Blueprint

Harvester Boss lvl 90: Decimator Cutter Mk III Box AND Xeno Cluster Missile II Blueprint

Harvester Boss lvl 93: Punisher Cruiser Mk IV Box AND Xeno Cluster Missile II Blueprint

Harvester Boss lvl 95: Punisher Cruiser Mk V Box AND Xeno Cluster Missile II Blueprint

    Great...Harvesters are 90-95....ffs @CMDOOMROOSTER seriously! They were hard enough as it was but 10-15 levels higher is taking the piss...

    Reapers and barrage fleets should be Co-op, particularly the higher level ones

    The random BP piece drop for the Xeno **** missile is ok but its basically implying that you must coin everything. And what is even worse is that it can only be obtained from the Phase 3 fleets

    *sigh*

    So if you are  not a coiner with a super fleet, we have no chance of getting xeno cluster BP, way to keep the non-coiners at another disadvantage.

    What a dickish way to ruin this game kixeye. The alien decimation was supposed to be a co op event, now its only single player, raising fleet levels by 15 or 20 and probably tripling it's difficulty, making older fleets give **** points because we know **** them. I swear your company is cancer. People have been coining and working their **** off to get the fleets necessary for these harvesters then you just obsolete the **** **** you kixeye

    You make your new weapon crappy and handicapped then release an accessory to fix it.

    So you make us get two items.

    **** you Kixeye. Just **** yourself.

    needs co-op

    points really, really, really suck, again :-(

    Is this a major coiner only event?

    Event should be renamed 'Alien Coin Decimation'


    Thanks for screwing over low/mid level players and even worse, thanks for shafting end gamers who don't coin or min coin :-(

    1. where are the xeno cannons?

    2. what's your goal kixeye? do you want money? let's introduce a monthly fee, like this it doesn't make any sense.. the game is just unplayable and even if someone want spend some money, he can't program anything because you keep continuing to introduce random new tech..

    I believe this event was made for like a dozen heaviest coiners that in their turn will still get annihilated by OP aliens, even with XD fleets. Doubtful that it will even create incentive to coin for anyone else.

    Anyone notice that the Xeno Munition buff stats are % (percent)-based, but not a fixed value? That is to ensure that you gain no benefit when use them with Xeno Cannon, since Xeno Cannon has NO splash (aoe) at all.

    May i ask @CMDOOMROOSTER
    WHY was Alien Decimation events introduced to us as CO-OP events and was ment to be CO-OP events if you then all of a sudden turns it into Single player events. The Decimation events was cool because it made players Cooperate to get to the end goal. And that was the whole point of this. To make players be able to Cooperate in other ways than hitting eachother bases for ressources/medals. And now you take away that whole idea. Great job on destroying what many players found fun/enjoyable.
