    As I said before, now the events are based on farming, it does not matter what kind of fleets you attack, only the number matters, no coin has been used, no blitz fleet has been touched.

    Lol what? U still need to attack specified fleets to gain points.
    Can't you remember good old days when we were able to attack absolutely ANY fleets for event points? Good old RIOTs....

    Keep in mind those Riots only offered old tech, the monthly events that release new tech all have a limited set of event targets that give points.

    Played event for nearly 3 days and didn't get aggroed and all of a sudden a 90 aggros my escort.
    How does that happen? Has the aggro been turned on in the middle of the event? Would be a new low for Kixeye ...

    Yes, same happening last event too, in the middle they turn on "New Agro Sistem" and attack every your fleet is in game sector during farm, pay attention at Jav and his escort.

    Yes, the new feature "Blitz", is only designed for the "coiners", now they can finish the events by pressing a single button, and the "free" players, as always, will have to be stuck to the screen of their devices during days to get some good prizes.

    This new invention will soon explode in the face of kixeye if they follow the path that I imagine ... since one thing is to be able to repeat a battle for a "fixed price of coins", and another is to have to pay a " tax "every time you want to repeat a battle; the mechanics of the new "Blitz", would be to set a maximum of 3-5 battles to be able to repeat as maximum, and not have to pay 10% coins each time the battle is repeated.

    As always, kixeye invents new ways to "squeeze" their players, not caring that their consumers have "common sense" and how everyone "does not like to be scammed".

    Well, after two days of grinding, I finally got all the new tech. After the messed up beginning, I was out of commission. After my Cruisers (three M6 Guardians, two M3 Bastions, and a M6 Paladin) were back online, I began to hit the L70 Vanguards since they were easier. After 26 cycles (three L70 Vanguards and the corresponding base calls), I ended up with the 5.4M points for the new tech. Shows that it's entirely possible to do the event, with a different route. At the same time, I obtained enough Fragments for a XF EEC (wish more Fragments dropped in the first place...). 

    There's still a day left, so I may continue to gain more points to gain other tech on my radar and to perfect my strategy against these new Regiments. 

    In case you're wondering, I didn't spend any coins during this event. 
    Same here, that's exactly what I did for this event too (with a very similar fleet, I also got a late start on building bastions so only have 2 as well). After a couple tries at the regiments with less that stellar results, I figured I needed a more reliable target, and I could really use another xeno epsilon cannon. Took awhile, but I got the 150 fragments and enough points for what I needed. I do hope to get better at the regiments, but I guess that'll be another event. I need to work on carrier pushing...

    I was curious, why is it that blitz fleets make you pay for full repairs rather than the damage taken in the battle? I tried one end of the night after other battles, "blitz" cost was for the full repair bill. Is it supposed to be that?

    Also, wasn't some time ago kix's defense against certain features was "it would cause too great of divide between coiners and non." I guess that's a different tune now, huh.

    All I highly recommend is get the ship. Other stuff can be earned later but the ship goes up 50% total cost after this it seems. That being said, earn the ship, log off and go enjoy something else.

    I'm curious to see who would actually kill the 900 L40 Deceivers to obtain a blank Bastion. Some may actually do it, since it can be free repair. Some low levels will also look towards that avenue to get a jump ahead, much like the old prize boxes with VEGA and VSec tech. 

    I hit a couple out of curiosity and I could've done it (as a side job) if I had more ships to hit all of them within my solar system.

    Some would certainly do only if this info was widely available, lol. Sadly there is no information on it in the in-game event description, nor here. 
    BTW how many bastion's patterns you get out of a single lv40 deceiver?

    1 piece so you need to do 900 of them to get enough for 1 bastion.

    omg 900 fragments! Years back I remember I used to spend some days to grind for a new tech in my system with insta rancors. That was crazy but 900 runs for a single hull is simply insane, lol. Assuming you get those 900 fragments, does it take time to craft/build it or it's a least ready?

    defeat 900 fleets ... to get a single ship ... in the same time (or even less) than you would spend in farming those 900 pieces, you could build a cruise.

    if the fleets AXIS lvl 40 give a single piece, why do the fleets AXIS 50 and 60 not also give pieces? maybe 2 pieces in fleets 50 and 5 pieces in fleets AXIS 60 would be the most "normal", this is somewhat frustrating.

    Is it even possible to kill 900 fleets during a single event?? I hit those 40s when I could, ended up with about 38 fragments. I figure if they're available over the course of the next few month's events maybe I'll eventually get those 900 pieces, but that's a pretty tall order. Though I do like the idea of being able to salvage pieces of wreaked ships to part together a new ship.

    In the fleets tab of your videos there is a cyan box, highlight some fleets, what does it mean? how can I activate it? I never saw it before.

    It's the Shield Bypass buff given by the Wormhole Blitz Drive to all escorting fleets whenever my Javelin Flagship warps around in sector space. Mostly useless (expires 20 seconds into battle) but it's my backup Javelin Flagship just in case my Wormhole Drive Type-E one gets destroyed.

    Much like the Riots of old, where people used to grind the Cargo 27s (think it was 915 points, so over a thousand fleet), the same thinking can be applied to the grinding for the Bastion blank. The fleet are obviously different, but the principle still applies. A long grind towards a top/high goal will be met with a fantastic reward.

    Oh yeah, I've done that, got the t-shirt a few times, and don't want to do that again :smile:

    I guess what I should have said is I wonder what it would take to actually gather those 900 pieces in one event. 

    My thoughts so far:

    One issue is having a fleet that can farm them for hours on end. To kill them on auto with (usually) instant-rep I had to use a pretty high level fleet . Though sometimes one ship would end up with like 10min rep, and it wasn't always the same ship.

    And to even have a chance one would have to have multiple such fleets to farm them. One of these fleets of course could be a tank fleet that can hit a bunch before it gets repped overnight, but I'd think most would have to be near instant.

    Which bring me to the logistics of farming multiple fleets at a time - these axis 40s are fast little buggers. Catching them in sector is a bit harder than hitting those in-planet 27s. So you either have to park next to several worm-holes (only two of which will be near one's planet), or make extensive use of a Javelin. Otherwise you're spending a lot of time chasing them down.

    I also feel tankful for dev team who made that "void suppressor" knowed as tyrant the total pain, sun the event started my fleets and escorts was attacked and obliterated by then praising me with 44hs rep (how nice are they). 4 hours before (do have at least a fleet and a escort fleet repped) the end of event do realized i was able to reach at least one BP piece, do take enough points for BP piece, soon battle end, i was surrounded by 3 fleets of those **** tyrants (waiting just as dogs guarding a tree until the cat get down) lend me with 44 rep again. So i cant express my gratitude for that fuking **** named as tyrant who make trolls even efficient on their task.

    yeah i got 5decimators + 1vindicator who are decimated by a fleet of 3 **** tyrants. Did everything right to prevent such time loss, perhaps i was surrounded by 3 fleets of tyrants, one was beated by my cutters perhaps the second with 3 tyrants does kill my cutters, then my farm fleet, 4hs later did lost another fleet, at last one more goes at end of night, (when i believed that trolls are sleeping). 

    Even when you kill those bastards they will be back really soon, cause rep time for them is low and also cheap if u coin their rep.

    done that, my alliance colegues also kill most of then perhaps as i said tyrant rep is faster than xeno tec even been absurdly superior to then, u can kill now, and see the same bastard 4-5hs later, if do relocate may lost my alliance cohesion and protection, so still a bad option to me.
