    @CS_Chris Must be over massed fleets from all that firepower. Have them leave the barrage missiles at home and im sure they will be able to launch their fleets normally :)

    Are you insinuating that they HAVEN'T understood that having alien events every week was a bad idea?

    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 - 5,500)

    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

      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

    Translation:

    Hey all, the gaming team is taking a look at the **** event they have created. It seems that aliens are afraid of losing players to get them to pay for repairs. In the meantime, we will offer you more scam deals to pay for our incompetence, thanks :)

    I just saw a fairly large coiner take on a harvester, one of his decimators died before they reached the stasis field.

    Kix, nerf those harvesters, or coop them. This event WILL be boycotted if it is impossible. it looks like it might be right now

    This fix is not optional, if it is not implemented, you will lose alot of players. make the game fun, not a money grab

    The day will come, when the fleets lvl 55 alien off the planet, will give the same points as a fleet lvl 27 inside the planet ... but when that day arrives, I and thousands of players will have already sent to vegacoinflict and kixeye to the ****.

    Sorry about that! Appears to have been a typo, I've corrected it. I've gone through and re-checked event points and all others should be correct.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: We have extended the activity by one hour due to the delayed start. As this would overlap the Civil War, we are moving the Civil War to after Alien Mobilization. This should also allow a bit of a breather between Decimation and Mobilization.

    Could the game team also take a peek at why I am unable to kill a harvester with mk5 demon corp cruisers and can only do this event with new Xeno ships I still have not built yet
    The problem with this game is the power curves. Just look at the graphs I made. Said no vega conflict player ever
