    So let me get this straight; in the last rampage reports you said you were NOT reducing the build times on the manticores which you acknowledge are too high as reducing the buildtimes UNDERMINES and DEVALUES the time / coin the existing players put into building them.
    BUT
    you add the greta inferno dragon into the FM when the raid players worked their butts off to get it in is only 2 weeks old. Talk about a double standard.
    Sucks for those of us that had only enough points to have to choose between the GID and the makara's manticore and we took the gid. I would have taken the other one if I knew kix was going to do this.
    i had 100 million points but insane grinding they def dont care "Players First"
    where did you see they were putting the GID in the fm - can you please post link only dragon was in my fm currently - i have them both but can you share where GID is going in fm

    For those already whining about the GID, it might not be as easy to get as you think.  That's a huge amount of points and if someone grinds it out they deserve it.

    You are comparing surf and turf (raid)  with shet on a shingle (FM). I would have said apples and oranges but I'm staying with the nautical theme.

    Had this same discussion with alli mate who could only get 1. I told him to get the Makara, so that he would be more effective in Hull store raid, and could get caught up easier. It's called strategy. Maybe all those complaining about making the wrong choice should tale a little more time thinking through their choices. And for Comparison, this guy quit for 12 months, and came back to see what was going on when he was gifted a Skyfire fleet. Now he has Manti's including flag, Phoenix fleet, inc Flag, 2 ID's built and ranked. Bucc's for base parts, all he needs now is a Skirmish fleet. All within 3 months, and as far as I know, very little coin. You have to have a plan and build smart.

    way to slow things down putting another ship in the fm and during bounty week.  you guys just do not get it you keep throwing too much stuff into the game at once people just can't keep up.  You have got to be losing players like crazy the sector i am in less than 50 players try the monthly.  A fianl thought worked so hard to get inferno flag all i needed to ws wait a week to get in the weekly, unfrigging beleiveable

    Hmmm...with the two flagships in the FM - for one week only - you will set up a new benchmark for FM points for a single prize.
    So 8-9mill is your planned goal for future FM prizes...i am expecting a tier 6 with that FM points range very soon.
    It seems, that KIXEYE need a LOT more money from the chore tasks...they give everyone the Gretas Inferno Dragon for "free",
    but the price will be future FM prizes for 8-9mil FM points...

    So WrongThinker has realized his new orders immediately: "Do whatever is generating more coins...and do it NOW!"

    Players first...lol...

    And there are important things in the Bounty too...that will be a challenge for my little boats.
    FM ( +conq flag), AND the Bounty. That sounds like a fulltime job.

    Doesn't really matter to me.  I just did PP1 of Primus Ordinus Campaign, 4 levels to it.  Lost an entire Hydra fleet and 3 hours damage on a Buccaneer fleet.  I don't need the junk in this TLC, thankfully, because it's simply not worth the repair time (approx. 17.5 hours if nothing else needs repairing).  Will not do the remaining Prize Packs and will not coin to repair that amount of damage.  "Players First" is rapidly becoming yet another joke trite phrase, imho.

    Amazing...now it looks like players will have to FIRST get 8 or 9 million point in the T5 FM before they can even get to the paltry 1d +2d build tokens in the T5 Chest.   Just amazing how Kixeye has "improved" the FM from what it used to be.

    I agree, with the next raid type being skirmish having the Phantom Fang made available again is a must. If it was available as a TLC, then all the better, run that campaign again, so so it can be built before the skirmish raids.

    I see everyone whining about the greta and I am not a fan of this being put out there after I got it in the raid but to be honest its a good move on kixeyes end to help the lowers who struggle way too much in this game. I know people that quit the game because they missed the puns a couple times and couldnt do the weekly. Do we want more of that?

    Fantastic, I have been gearing up big time for next raid for Greta's flag, and now will be able to get it in FM.   Customer Support has been helpful I'm very pleased with the new developments, I sincerely believe management and upper management is on the right track.   Thank You!  Battle Pirates is BACK!

    Come on dog that's 8 mil over 6 days.  That vrs 40 mil over 4 days.   Even you can do math I suspect.
    That 40 Mill actually meant hitting 8 targets.

    The 8 Mill will (for most) involve hitting well over 27 (112s) or 54 (111s) targets.

    8 targets or 54 targets, math?

    Thanks for slowing down on content and make my dream come through... countermeasures on throwers launchers and ballistics... yeah right... and a marvelous new module that will stun the only thing that keeps fleets out, my guard....  what are you thinking, lets first dump all we had in the backlog and then work on customer first. Be proud of yourself, you managed to keep your word for at least 2 days.
     
    teh stun will last for a second at most when built right..


    When the conq is build right, it might mean 5 hulls, 7 stuns = 35 seconds - that's all it takes to make a difference with the high level bases. Even 10s would do ;-)

    Is the Greta's Inferno Dragon in the FM some sort of kixeye joke?? What the *bleep* is this i spent 40 mill points to get that ship to build after my manti builds to do better in the FM where i could have gotten the Makara's Manticore for the same amount and waited to get the greta inferno in the FM for 9 mill.. you lot can take back the  greta inferno blueprint and owe me a Makara's Manticore for this slap in the face.

    thats 54 111 targets thats almost 10 per day in raid needed 16 104 or 106 and if you got both needed only 4 of each and cut those numbers in half. getting 54 111 is a huge stretch and if you do have dragons built and can do new targets to get the flag still looking at 14 of those and even that is very comparable to the raid. Raid vs FM is basically the same either grind away low targets or take damage for bigger target or have the ships needed for bigger targets low damage

    So let me get this straight; in the last rampage reports you said you were NOT reducing the build times on the manticores which you acknowledge are too high as reducing the buildtimes UNDERMINES and DEVALUES the time / coin the existing players put into building them.
    BUT
    you add the greta inferno dragon into the FM when the raid players worked their butts off to get it in is only 2 weeks old. Talk about a double standard.
    Sucks for those of us that had only enough points to have to choose between the GID and the makara's manticore and we took the gid. I would have taken the other one if I knew kix was going to do this.
    they give out tokens to reduce the build times on mantis. and a metric s.ton of them.

    whine on brother.

    Y'all do realize that having the GID in t5 two weeks after raid isn't something to fuss about? Those that have it already are that much ahead in builds and will be better able to devote yard time to the new skirmish hull next raid. The big problem is that it is going to be a real **** for the average player to get. The points required remind me of the week I ground 103s to get the Sprint. I was crying with boredom by the time I finished. The good thing is that medium players can get it easily with seat time so long as they have an instant repair fm fleet to do the 111. This is a huge leap forward for kix to make the current top fm fleet available to grind in the fm itself.

    Rampage, wrongthinker, Robot, doesn't matter what you say. It still is showing that Kix is for themselves and not the players like you all have said. You place a siege camp and you lose a hydra fleet in pp1 something is very wrong. Not going to spend money to do something. Would rather do without and you treat us players like crap by putting the Greta in the weekly. Your such garbage and CHEATS No wonder price and Nash and Liam left the game. You need to compensate all the players that worked so hard to get it in the raid. or you need just take it out of the weekly. 9 Mil points that is not very much and can be easily won. If your going to show that the players don't mean anything except money then you need to just shut down. This is total disrespect no wonder you can't have more than 28 k people playing when there was over 100 k 3 yrs ago. YOU BETTER FIX THIS AND FIX THIS FAST

    Come on dog that's 8 mil over 6 days.  That vrs 40 mil over 4 days.   Even you can do math I suspect.
    And how much were the targets worth?  Oh... If you could do the tops you got 10 mil you hit 4 and done...  Even the 60 level were each over a mil to the people who SHOULD be doing them...    And those people were helped by people like me so that they took no damage in targets they normally wouldn't be able to do... Can't do that in FM either... It's not always a question of points...  The ones of us that completed all of tier 5 last week are somehow being punished for having the right tools for the job...
