    How is it we haven't seen the Xeno Sai BP yet? The Decimation usually has the BP fragments available for drop and we haven't seen anything like it so far.

    1. Blank Bastion Hull Fragments haven't been "officially" released. That one time in Invasion was unintended. I wouldn't expect it to happen until close to the end of the season. 
    2. Shockwave Resonant Armor may return soon, since it was associated with the Paragon. This time, the Spectral armor is out and it's for the Cavalier (and Bastion). 
    3. XF Turrets are still woefully underpowered and the specials they provide won't help much. They need a raw DPS increase to compensate for the high innate AL resistance for Xeno and over. I wouldn't waste time with the XF Turret specials or XF Turrets, in general. 
    4. I think I've seen Heavy Talonite plates in the occasional Smash and Grab.

    @CM_Lee In addition to the above ill add that we yet again see the Neutrino special for the Paragon battleship that seem to return for about every event but we have yet to see the Palladium munitions special for the same battleship return since it was offered last month.

    Strange. There's no spectral shell III BP even this is Decimation. Can you confirm it @CM_Lee ? Seems quite many people are desperate to get this BP.

    There is nothing really new. Spectral armor? Look at the shockwave armor stats and change it from explosive to energy, same goes to resistors. Other than than nothing new.
    We actually need the shockwave armor, it's best for cutters now.
    As for the alien damage turrets, they are still more effective than the heavy projectile and other regular types, except for missiles probably. But we can't have anything better anymore due to the modules mass limit.

    Like i already said, no surprise here, take the shockwave armor and imagine it is energy resistant, not explosive, all stats are the same. Same will be for projectile next month.

    I vote for losing the decimations (phases are useless) they are a hangover from the alien invasions. Replace with another mobilization please.

    Surely, as we have seen in other events with "phases", phase 1 and phase 2 will last for hours, and phase 3 will last only 5-10 minutes ...

    I keep saying, all phases should have a "fixed" time, 15-30 minutes is more than enough to attack 3-6 event fleets per phase.

    Also, the "mechanics" for make the "phase timer" go up has changed and has not been notified anywhere, players need to "destroy the whole fleet" and not only "attack fleets", that "hidden" change is something that should be notified to the players.

    It seems a bit stupid to "force" players to attack a type of fleets if they want to move to the next phase, it's like saying: if you want to go up to your house, you must first climb the stairs and then call the elevator, otherwise, the elevator will not answer your call.

    Thanks for the feedback,

    1. Yes Bastion Fragments have not been officially released yet, no timeline currently in place when these will make it into the wild.
    2. Shockwave Resonant Armor has been added to Decimation!
    3. The last 2 requests we will see about incorporating into upcoming events.

    I still think most of you should still be happy and not complaining so much considering the fact that bastion stuff is in decimation and not trickled out yet....

    I'm just hoping that the L90 and L100 Vanguards won't have an outrageous buff, like what happened to the L80s in the Mobilization.

    Being a decimation im taking that for granted. They have pretty much always been buffed in the past with the argument that Decimations are intended to be the most difficult event type and decimation targets should be seen as separate from other event targets no matter that they are identical in name and configuration. Of course it has always been a source of outrage by "hopeful" people whos hopes are crushed. For me, if i go into an event expecting the worst it at least cant get worse :)

    Agreed. Though honestly, in my opinion this is how it ought to be. With the exception of the 110 level on the newest fleets, the others still have up to level 100 which is really nice, and all mark levels available in drops. Once a hull is release, why not leave its intended target and its upgrades for the rest of the season? I'm not sure what is to be gained by removing them, besides frustration from those a bit behind (especially this season). So I'm glad to see this, and hope it becomes a new trend.

    could you please take a look at the difficulty of vanguard and brigade fleets...
    some of them are just not doable anymore. you should test them with guardians. 20-30% dmg after one single 80 is no fun.
    shouldnt it get easier over time to get "older" content (i know its still new) or at least stay the same?
    a lot of people are still trying to get mk2 or mk3 stuff for their bastions. with only one or two completed bastions or even not a single bastion its impossible :(
    2 - 4 weeks ago the same fleet where pretty good doable with guardians so could you please tune them down a little bit?

    Best regards

    Correct, the points in-game are the corrected amount and I have adjusted the information in the Brief for the Brigade targets.

    Why are they not left alone and as per original briefing? What's the motive or reasoning to change the intel points after the event starts?

    Please enlighten us
