    Manticores needed to do the campaign that earns manticores.  More head in the sand from kixeye.  This is just getting absurd
    Hmmm...

    Other players (with Phoenix/Skyfire) made it for completion tho.
    LION'S MANE (PP1) - Have the Manticore Print, needed for the other camp (SCORPION STING)

    Both Camps is viable by using Phoenix/Skyfire.


    Needing a ridiculous amount of pinches for an uber turret that appeared out of nowhere is not an acceptable strategy!! Kixeye why are you giving us retrofits for skyfires like they are going to be still useful and then immediately bringing out a turret that 100% nullifies them?

    What do I do when they don't allow me to retreat 50x to hit one target?  If I had to use 20 pinches to kill someone's base they would say I'm a terrible hitter.  
    where did the fun go?  would you mind bringing it back?

    lions manticore boring need to use apollos and skys , dont know after pp1 if its a killer , the scorpions cant do it , only have 1 manti ready , second manti in 8 days so need to wait to have a manti fleet to be able to make the tlc 

    At least you have Apollos & Skies. ..

    just using them for auto 65 to get titanium, still boring as its 5 k at a time , but no good for assault (manticores , caedes and phoenix) tlcs lol 
    wait if all  your skyfires can do are 65 you need to get a decent build.  skys should do 85s with map repair

     i think 85 got rudolf and cant do targets with rudolf using skys 
    Incorrect, whoever told you rudolph is in the 85s should be slapped
    You will only receive my scorn from this point forward

    our countermeasures when faced with incoming enemy rounds :

    meanwhile the enemy has never heard of countermeasure evasion and shoots down every single thing you throw at it.  how about some balance?  
    where did the fun go?  would you mind bringing it back?

    Now that Gales are in the Fm are they no longer limited? If they still are then this is wrong.

    The titanium targets like so many are mind numbingly repetitive that I would recommend just autoing the 83s and do a long repair in the meantime. If you have tokens then find a refit of the fleet ti make it able to auto 85s. 
    You will only receive my scorn from this point forward

    So... just to be clear- PvP is dead for at least 2 more weeks then. Good to know that we really don't need to do this bounty. A++. Great job at bringing balance back into the game!!!! -_-

    This is now 100% another pve raid.... With being able to secure when ever you want you will never get hit. Everyone is going to have to hit the cloned bases.. How many people you figure will sit around doing that all weekend?

    On the plus side, the "My Opponent" bases are fun to hit. There's a lot of variety and the way they're rated is consistent and reasonably accurate. 

    The point being that the players are way better at making entity targets than the 'professional' designers. We actually play the game and deeply understand how it works. 

    The game is all about PvE anyway. A "fair" PvP game would annoy the whales too much.

    Can not redeem Chest Prize in Pool 4 in this week's FM.  Says I must redeem a prize but all prizes are redeemed.  Looks like a glitch.  Have tried refreshing and points are adequate to redeem.

    Update:  Vass IB and Gale3 now being shown as a prize.  Redeemed that hull and can get the chests now.

    when can we get some prototype countermeasures to shoot down the prototype missiles in the raid targets?   lol.
    just doesn't seem to be fair that the prototype missiles can't be shot down, drains our charged armor, deal a huge crazy amount of damage(pen and cor).....seems to be a lose-lose situation for the ships.

    Ohhhkey! So there has been an update! I will give my 2 cents on the matter, and I will try to get started with some positive to say as the resent raid, changes to bounty and T7 ballistic has gotten their fair chance of ventilation on the forums in the most resent past. Maybe I touch some of those during my subjective post later, but here goes. 


    Good things first!
    Early TLC of needed tech for the raid. Good work, now tune the raid to what most of us got in hand. 
    FM and change of prize list! Another good thing, almost new or close  to new content in the list Only new to me is the NA2, but Im sure there are alot of other players that will get some cool stuff 

    And that's it as far as "good things going on", but frankly in the past weeks there has been 0 good things going on with Kix. 

    So what else is there to say besides the T7 ballistic turrets mentioned by Padre, Ewok and a whole bunch of other players KILLING THE PVP? Well there is no TLC for mega like there was in at least the 2 last bounty, there is no TLC to get T4-5-6 PVP hulls and tokens to build them. 

    In my intro I said I might touch the subject, but honestly I'm fist elbow deep up ya arse. First you killed PVP with the new OP conc gun, then you killed it again with the OP bal gun, then you killed defense, no wait! You made defense  a matter of  a FvF inside a base with  5 min timer, and a 25% bubble pad. Then you killed PvP again with overpowered T7 turrets and here we are!

    What's really annoying is that this game has been a PvP game sins at least 2012, probably 2011. The raids then later the FM, then later the this, that and so on (baseparts, uranium, titanium, ) not to mention FM changes 4 times in a year meaning June is last month of this cycle, 

    It is like if Kixeye ran a bowling alley, it would have been like this: Wax the floor, wax the floor polish the balls, polish teh balls, fix the shoes. Then Hey we are running a bawling alley, lets bawl 1 day a month. 100 bux to opt in but its a ball!" 

    Compared to other free to play,, pay to gain games you are cheep, that is the only reason you have lived so long, and that is the only way to survive.

    Homesector: Nope. Sector visited: yes, and some more. Drac / Reaver hulls: Won some, some I didn't win.

    Why does the FM say I need the Vassagio Icebreaker when I have it and never built it?  I do believe the limit is one(1).

    Well fun factor has gone for me - since the last raid Ive only logged in maybe once a day to do FM.  And heres the kicker - I dont actually miss the game.  I thought I would, but I dont.  And that's all on Kixeye for their management of this game.
    Those that can - do.  Those that can't - scream hacker, coiner and anything else that takes their fancy.

    Vassago Icebreaker IS a limited print, but you can have an unlimited number of it. 

    Which sux because now we will have to redeem a Vassago Icebreaker @400k every single FM before we can get the tokens.
    Same with Gales, but at least they are useful...

    Cap the turrets at 6 or put thhe blunderbuss in the Bounty. Let those of us with 4 ballistic turrets at least be able to be on a par with those that already have them? Taking out the javs rather than capping the amount of turrets or putting in 2 blunderbusses and releasing javs later is a really unfair way to resolve this situation.

    As with anything in this game, you need the right fleet to be able to make a go.
    Skyfires walk through these campaigns, requiring only repair to the flagship when done.  Even though they get lit up by the targets, the damage is relatively light.  Their overload/stun capability allows the UAVs to quickly wipe the platforms clean.
