    should've kept the jav2 in the prize pool, apart from the highguard warden, they were the main priority for quite a few people.
    ever had  a problem where you log on and someone is hitting your base, and wanted to view the world map while it happens? try this.
    1/select leadersboard.
    2/select player's medals.
    3/select any player there.
    4/select "find base"
    that may or may not take you to world map.

    Yet another change that was not communicated anywhere.  You bounty posts even show 4 hrs I just double checked.  You realize that if you don't coin your dock is not even repaired by the time your bubble pops.  Get it together kixeye.

    Haha maybe that was even me you were hitting.... I got hit within minutes after "joining the hunt" while I was going to the world map and back into base over and over waiting to secure that first grant of 800 bounty. Someone hit my base while I was on the world mad and, lo and behold,  I see I have 800 bounty so I secured it from the world map while the base attack was in progress. 

    So, yeah, this bounty season 10 (BS10) is just another PvE raid hitting replica bases for points. Only time anyone will ever have unsecured bounty is while they are online hitting replicas and if you catch them then they will just bank it before you can steal it so why waste your time on player bases...

     It is so sad.  For so long people have been complaining that bases don't have a chance when attacked,  so things improve for base protection. Now it so bad that attacking fleets can't walk thru bases like they used to.  I feel like I'm on a roller coaster. .  Can't make everybody happy. Never will be completely happy.

    funniest part.... its the same people complaining

    issues, bugs, weird things and the team is looking and looking. Wonderful to know that all things should have been tested so well before they were applied .......
    I have more the idea they tested if all not normal things worked well and not what we could expect.

    I would have liked a way to earn chests, however so far I am really enjoying the new format. 

    I have a hard time believing that we are dealing with a company that is brilliantly scamming us AND entirely incompetent. 

    This is a private company in a capitalist market trying to make money - your money. Give it to them, or don't - but don't fault them for trying.

    Smash a replica, get a small chest, smash a player within your TECH bracket. Get a legendary chest?

    So, is the locator going to be fixed before the end of bounty? Not that we can hit most bases anyway, but it would still be nice...

    Updated to reflect Halo Missile II will remain redemption limit of 2, while the team is working on the balance of PVP.

    That is NOT an improvement. That is making it even worse, since now you're restricting rather sharply the ability of people to get what they need to keep the new hull out, so balance is going to swing totally in the other direction again.

    The solution to the insanity that is the current PVP balance (Or rather, total lack of balance), as I and others have said repeatedly, is to abandon this insane idea of only using deflection for PVP ship defences. It was a stupid idea when you first did it, but the reasons it was stupid, as well as the magnitude of the stupid, were disguised by other stuff. But now you've made so many poorly thought through design choices, which massively aggravate all it's flaws that it's FAR beyond salvaging (Of particular note is all the multiplicative damage bonuses that have now infested everything). Take the resistance bypass off the turrets, keep using the class-lock system, and start working on a new series of conqueror hulls that use resistances, not deflection.

    Deflection does not WORK as a sole defence, it is fundamentally unbalance able- that is not an opinion, it is the inevitable consequence of how the maths works.

    If you seriously intend to salvage PVP, you need to start moving to an era where deflection is no longer the primary defence in PVP.

    Every single problem with PVP as it stands can be traced to the decision to make deflection the primary defence.
    The over damage controversy? Deflection.
    The massive damage swings? Deflection.
    The defence ship problem? Deflection.
    The (I'm guessing here, but it's an informed guess) massive reduction of PVP coin revenue, caused by fleets taking far less damage since most people know by looking at a base if they can take it or not, coupled with the near total lack of any middle ground between base flat, no fleet damage, and base still over 75% health, fleet totally sunk. Deflection's fault. Again.
    Etc, etc, etc.

    Unfortunately kix has created a situation where there are two massive extremes. Bases either get walked for instant repair to the attacker or the attackers fleet dies in 3 shots. There is no middle ground. 
    At least when it was balanced you could have a sense of achievement ( even if you lost the battle). Players whose base was 100% flat didn't feel so frustrated about it if they did over 50% damage to the attacker; and an attacker that almost won, didn't feel so bad about losing their fleet and would think of ways to crack the base next time.
