    Glad I'm not the only one seeing this. Did a 100 at start of raid and just barely finished it, it was fun. Now my fleet is dying at first turret bank. I thought I just got lucky that first time but my 100 days are done.  I suppose it was to easy for the top 10% so now that they all have over 100 million us peons suffer.

    Spent a long time and lot of effort to do IBs. They are a waste of time in this raid. Breezing through though with 3 monos with zelos and pun tanks

    Did they ever say in the last raid what activates the Apollo in the raid targets? one just activated in an 83 target and just about destroyed my whole fleet of monoliths 




    One of the rhinos will randomly switch and become an Apollo. When it dies, the Apollo in the target unshrouds.


    Man you just solved the mystery I've tried to solve since the garrison cycle started and i've just verified that in a target. Now I can actively mitigate and avoid the shrouded POS.

    Hey Doomrooster

    What's with the introduction of the ICBM Nuke after-death missile on the isolated small centre island in the 100s?  (the island above and right of the megaship construction building).

    Repeated it about 12 times now and since around midnight Pacific Time last night approx 1.5 seconds after everything on the island is destroyed it launches a single executioner style missile that takes over 40% off my Gridiron that has 2 C1-M on it - that's over 40% of primary health not the charged pool - and I have 94% penetrative resist on that Gridiron.  That one missile is adding 2 hours repair to my fleet every time I hit a 100.

    Seems like a total **** move to add something like that 15 hours into the raid.

    I'd make a video of it, but as usual the lag is too much to run screen recording as well as the game - lag that ONLY exists in Battle Pirates - I can run Mechwarrior Online at highest graphics without lag and that is one seriously graphics intensive game.


    Edit to add:  Have submitted ticket copying this post and additional info - #3839765

    In a game like BP the hardest targets should be other players, not the AI targets!

    I have had those 2 phantom morts hit me twice in the 100 target.My tank is loaded with gale 3 and flcm,my monos each have one gale 2 per.The island after running the gauntlet is where it's happening,those 2 morts can take 1/4 of fleets health.Should not
    be happening.

    Also Doomrooster - hate to say it but the quote below is lies, lies, and damned lies - either you were fed lies to regurgitate to us, or ... well, you know.

    There is very little similarity in the damage quotient between this raid and last raid - as many people have already stated in this thread.

    There is either a problem with the charged armour (which I believe is true regardless), or countermeasures are not working correctly, or the counters to countermeasures on the targets' missiles have been cranked way up.

    Greetings Captains,

    The June event set up is very very similar to the previous events in the Cold War cycle. As such, we'll forgo any tips on the targets and instead, we'd like to share with you some Tips & Tricks for getting the most out of your Icebreaker and Monolith hulls.

    I know it stated the phoenix lock was until 9am PDT, but what about the worlds that started later?

    The lock has been placed back on, yet we have only had it for 19 hours.

    Youve got to be more specific than a typical generic damage increase claim. Plus, the generic response to such question is that raids will always get tougher as its cycle continues (which is a fact).

    Alright I haven't put on my tinfoil hat in a while, but this is what I am seeing. Yesterday I was walking through the 100s with about a 3-4 coin repair. Today I just tried putting on a BB crew. my fleet has a phalanx 4 Gale 3 and trident per ship. I took near triple the amount of damage as yesterday. Normally I would just assume I drove poorly, but I did the same route and the BB should have been more helpful.
    You will only receive my scorn from this point forward

    Why are they stupid?

    They opened up the newest hull to people without the need to buy a 20M point hull before it, as an offer to the player base.... those that are not able to play during the first 24hrs are at a disadvantage there, but they can do it by just grinding it out when they are able to play.

    Also do you *have* to build it with the new missile and special - nope........

    They'll offer a better/ equally good new missile in the FM soon anyways, so I wouldn't be too upset if I were you....

    Btw I also only have the hull unlocked, so not saying it from the  perspective of me grabbing everything already)

    Guys, I have to give props for giving players the chance to earn the phoenix without having to get the justice.   My little beef is the timing. While some of the players are retired, or whatever the issue may be it was great for them. But for those of us that still work the timing was not good at all. these targets are not (auto) targets and takes a little time to do each. I played for 3 hrs last night and netted a little over 20 mil.  It was a nice gesture but the timing coulda been a little more forgiving for those of us that work.   thanks

    Someone is triggered anyway, all I said was that your internet is **** and that the video is playable, never challenged you to anything lil buddy.

    That starting and stopping is to prevent an old bug. Ships would sometimes stop at max range and not fire, really **** bug. How do I know? I made a video and gave it to one of the mods for him to pass up, it was patched pretty quickly.









    That is old time FM targets not targets in 2017´s raid nor forsaken weekly.... ;)


    Teddy is trying to show him what he is talking about with the glitch.

    I'm aware. It was demonstrating a bug, not the target.

    100 damage recently dialed back down somewhat?  Just did a 100 with VIB fleet and Molotov crew for 3.5 hours repair.

    maybe someone can explain why my grid isnt shooting down missiles?  my driving isnt bad but not perfect either.  Everything is r15 and build is in the description.





    An update to my original post.  So i tried my Zelos tank which has no charged armor and it did fine.  Had about 1.5 hrs of fleet damage which is what i expect.   So something is wrong with the charged armor and i believe counters may also be affected because i have more Plax4 on my Grid than my Zelos. I can see the counters working on the Zelos but not on the Grid.

    At this point we have to realize that Kixeye is just trolling us for laughs. The damage increase and the lag is just to see how far they can take players before they quit and how dumb the whales are spending hundreds of dollars on the raid.

    "We have removed the lock to the Phoenix, Talon Missile, and Carbon Fiber Casing for the first day of the event! These items are unlocked until Friday 9am PDT."

    Fantastic news for Alpha world, they get 24 hours to go for this... 

    all other worlds get a kick in the pants.

    if your raid starts 4 hours later because that is what the game dictates then you only get 20 hours... oh wait there is sleep in there... 12 hours.. hang on some work as well... 4 hours .. yup that's about right 4 hours to go for the 60 mil in unlocked mode...


    what a crock of **** kix promise a day a 20 hour day...
