    Ok. Why is Harmonic better other than the speed fleet bonus.  The speed stat on both Thruster are the same.  +90ms and 7 degree for both. Zephyr has no strafe reduction, and Harmonic does. Zhphyr has no mass, sure it uses 15% shield energy reduction. Remember, on bastion, you can get 34k shield with 3 regular Resonant Armor II gives you +20 shield energy each.  The question I have is how is the Zephyr Thruster -15% energy reduction are calculated.  Does it reduced by 15% from total shield energy, or is it based on the shield only, and the Resonant Armor bonus will be added later.
    Can anyone answer this?
    Ahh, so I'm not the only one that noticed no strafe reduction on the new thruster. :)

    I'm tempted to refit just for that, but I can decide for sure as multiple ships with harmonic thrusters at a some point may negate the strafe reduction on the harmonic thrusters. I'm just not sure what the break even point is, or if we can actually get to a break even with six in a fleet. So I'm not sure if I want to lose the harmonic bonus to forward and turning to restore strafe speed.
    Oh yeah, that's the reason we are all waiting for Altarian Carrier. It better not be a ****. Current T7 shielding is very high. A slight reduction is ok. They can be fitted much faster than the harmonic version. also shield regeneration also helps.

    What no base attack again to help us out with points. I’m very disappointed with this. And the new thrusters don’t impress us when we have a better one to use.

    2 Xeno Epsilon fragments on a single target? Why? What's the point? The weapon has basically been offered a single time.

    Base calls are always (and only) in main events. It's common knowledge, so it's not often placed in the briefing.

    3 hours 13 min before the event begins, still no information, confidence in kixeye continues to dwindle, thanks for continuing to frustrate the players

    Why would they tell you exactly how it works? Then when they change it in the first hour, they can say it’s supposed to be like that... lol

    So dumb kix is just doing scripting. What's more lazy and boring than a farm game? A scripting farm game. What kix doesnt tell you is that likely some day in the future all you will be able to do is script farm. Kix is going to greatly lower the point payouts of fleets and force you to hit so many that you cant do it without scripting. There just wont be enough time. Wow this game is getting worse all the time.

    Yep, its bs that kix doesnt allow noncoiners to use it. If a fleet does 5% damage to yours then just have blitz add 5% damage to your fleet eqch time you use it. **** kix is greedy.

    Please keep posts and replies diplomatic.  See forum rules, rules are in my signature. 

    That said, after trying a few of the Blitz fleets myself, coiners should be prepared to pay a hefty price for that feature.  Those fleets are TOUGH.

    Only two hits on a L70 Regiment and my Cruiser fleet is practically dead. These fleet are broken. I'm sticking to the Vanguards until we see a drastic change in the non Blitz Regiment. I'm not going to bother doing the Blitz targets like what @Junren-JS said. Even the L70s have Plasma weaponry in them, when the usual rule of thumb is that any target over L90 has Plasma in it.

    So....a blitz 70 regiment is tougher than a normal regiment 70, of course, kix makes it tougher to cause more dmg so coin amount increases.

    Sorry, not falling for that one.

    Is this any kind of "Altarian cruiser build credit"? same as weapon credits where you can craft the hull?

    Guys, never attack a altarian brigade that was already tried by someone else! 
    i just realised that, when the battle began, first wave of the brigade 80's was already killed.
    So i engaged the second wave, the most stupid thing i ever did in this game.
    23h repair time, 3 guardian mk6 killed, 3 bastion mk4 damaged heavily....all hardened against explosive damage.

    2nd and 3rd wave paragons surround you very quickly, stasis makes you unable to do anything.

    Kixeye: your new "AI" is crap if it can not compensate the loss of the first ships in a event fleet.
    Don't know if you call this an AI, its just event triggered ships. 
    actually, i really miss the "I" in your whole game.

    They are tough for non-coiners, including myself. I was doing 80s and 90s last event. Barely doing 70s this event.

    Coiners I see doing them though with mk5. So it truly is widening the gap but hey, what hasn't recently?

    I believe you grind to get 900 Fragments to obtain a blank Bastion.
