    He could have reached a "secure bounty" milestone, then he can secure, and hit you again, and suck your bounty.

    Im rather sad that i joined before reading the new rules, and spend uranium on upgrading bounty level - that does ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!

    Waste of uranium, waste of time, waste of.. everything.
    Upgrading your Bounty upgrades your base defense,  which helps you hold on to your bounty you have earned.
    CM please clarify. You have stated in part that "Upgrading  your Bounty upgrades your base defense" whereas the in game specifies OUTPOST resistance buffs. No mention of the rest of the base defense????

    Same as last bounty many of the targets that show worth points and these are targets off the locator do not pay out. These are full health bases wasting time and coin hitting them and once again not getting anything for it. How is this still an issue?

    you still havnt fixed the payout. Ive hit several bases that were supposed to pay and nothing but repair for it. why was it postponed for a week? seeing how the "crutch" targets arent really the goal here, why was the event even run this month? per usual, the cost of everything has been jacked up to boot. this pretty much guaranties that the biggest problem of this event continues.... participation sucks

    hahaha happenned last event too. I was hoping kix fixes it on this one, but thats one more reason to not participate.
    CS says you attack a player while he attacks someone else and at the moment fight ends for you he already finishes his target, securing his bounty package.

    I am sure its a lie though and kix just doesnt want to fix it cos it will lead to exploits which are already more than enough in this crappy event.

    This really is beyond ridiculous for those who are wasting time and money on this failure of an event (I don't, but I can feel your frustration). Kixeye claims that this were due to the player being hit crossing a safety limit during the ongoing hit, but seeing the vast number of players who are not receiving Bounty, such an easy explanation requiring highly specific timing is highly unlikely. Also, even if it were so - how can someone design an event where a player might randomly and unforeseeably not be awarded the reward he is investing in? The basic principles behind Bounty are broken, period. It isn't working, and needs to be redone at the drawing board.

    I also have two tickets in for not getting bounty points after base hits - before and after screenshots included.  Personally, i see very little value or point in further PvP activity in this PvP event.....

    The Justice in the 96 was a **** move, as is the massive increase in price for the courage. Shouldn't be surprised though I guess.

    I know it is 30% of what their unsecured bounty in, don't know why they just don't show you what you will ACTUALLY get, that doesn't seem that hard.

    So to confirm, one hour fleet repair tokens don't work during Bounty?  Used one ,  came up with the 'you used a token' box but no repair on the fleet.

    What I want to know from Kixeye : If you give us instant repair on base and guard fleet, will you not make a ton more coin in the extra repairs an attacker will take in damage dealt?  We do not get any points for base defence so there are no need to coin building repairs. So imo you are cutting your own throat with shortsighted planning. But then again, maybe with Kix math you make more coin by losing out on an opportunity to make more.

    ok... so epic fails from first season bounty. (yes i'm trying to be constructive in this not whining)

    short bubbles massive base hits bugs galore and no way to earn a good bounty without having rages.

    from then till now

    axiom came out stops all fleets stupidly good. gun nerf cause it would "break the game" by taking it out of the retrofit lab. supposedily fine. but now the complete opposite is true stops most ships kinda nicely. still can't see mudgluts (if properly built of course) and the one hull it was DESIGNED to kill walks it because stacking 5 ships or 4 and the flag gives enough resistance against it that they take minimal damage and continue to walk the base. sure other turrets can still damage it fairly nicely but that's still far and inbetween.

    so that brings us to season 2

    OP no longer generates bounty you just automatically get 800 every 4 hours and you can only skip one. so for people that opt'd in and work or sleep potentially miss one collection out of a possible 6. so that's a plus. missing 2-3 a day potential and you can still hit 1 checkpoint potentially 2. another plus for people getting minimal points over the 4 days.

    bubble times were raised by an hour. plus

    however if in the 4-8 hours you sleep and get hit your bubble starts but not your repairs. ships keep building but dock repairs stop. BIG NEGATIVE
    if you don't login immediately after a base hit your base is still mostly dead instead of being half-strength your OP is still badly damaged along with all your turrets and it's tremendously easy for any pvp fleet to walk your base.

    i thought attackers would get reduced medals/bounty from a non-fully repaired base OP? i'm still losing the 30% of my bounty every loss including on ones that more bounty than me. (i can provide screenshots of my base defenses for this if you like) i also thought unless your OP was fully repaired you wouldn't show up on the bounty locator this isn't the case because unless someone has my base bookmarked there is no way 7 minutes after my base unbubbles that someone knows to hit my base when my OP is still half dead.

    do us a favor and lower repair times on turrets and OP and portals if we opt in bounty. let our base repair in the SAME AMOUNT OF BUBBLE TIME and either drastically reduce the times of dock repair itself so our fleets can keep repairing or allow the second repair queue and normal repair queue to keep repairing the fleets while dock is also repairing otherwise once your base gets flattened you have no options left to do anything else because unless you coin repairs completely the game is dead and you'll be lucky if you can even do a single thing from this point on in the game.

    i know it's only 4 days and bounty isn't for everyone but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to opt in and have the game unplayable. i understand you want us to coin repairs but for the amount of back and forth and constantly in repairs it's not fun.

    i also thought that unless your OWN op was repaired you couldn't get bounty. but would someone please clarify this i know it doesn't say one thing or another about it in the rules and description of the forum posting about season 2.

    Specs, it seems to be the repeat issue that happened last bounty where it shows 30% of your total bounty on the base and not 30% of the unsecured bounty.

    i'm curious about the last hit on my base.  in the battle log, it shows that the attacker had more bounty than me, but he still took 480 bounty from me after flattening my base.

    unless i'm reading something wrong, didn't it say in the brief that if the attacker has more bounty than you, you won't lose any bounty?

    just wondering...
