    hi everyone  " first " with base power hitting max for a large amount of people would be nice to see OP11 soon or even some tier 8 solar reinforcements with bigger power boost

    I am okay with you guys putting TLC's in game for catching up.
     This week we have bounty and catch up TLC's for bases.

    I won't participate in bounty until after you guys do this refactor.
    I quit picking up basers when PvP went to sh*t and focused on base weapons.

    With all that being said, All I have to look forward to doing this week is the FM. 
    Guess I will have something to do for a day maybe two.

    hi everyone 

    Hi

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Not really much happened in this update except giving us a heads up about the new TLC we're gonna see. I'm very curious about how base race will play out, as this is the first time a TLC reward was an auto upgrade to a building. My only wish for it is that the first few PPs have a token or something so that players like myself with everything upgraded aren't immediately booted to the mastery runs.

    I've been part of every bounty, and have every baser. Base weapons are a valuable part of the puzzle, but if you don't have the T7 basers built before the refactor then you may find a few nasty surprises. No telling what will be changed or broken, and if you don't have any tools with you then you will quickly become irrelevant.

    Is bounty perfect? No. Is a boycott ever an option in my playbook? No. Is not picking up the latest hull an option for me? No. There are too many possible outcomes for me to miss any tech. Even before the rebalance, take the witch. When the corrosive turrets came out, if you didn't build the witch you were locked out of any halfway decent base. I won't be caught with my pants down when the rebalance happens.

    To introduce the Base Race Campaign before the PvP change, is a bad idea!

    Since the PvP refactor will also include a final solution for the level 80 "band aid" restriction, someone will find themself in a "wrong" position,
    if he is doing the Base Race Campaign yet.

    Good luck to the low level pirates, which use this opportunity, to get insta base-upgrades.

    Without the neccessary turretweapons + turretupgrades, that bases could be soon the new farms...again...

    Good lord, if they can't fix the limit you would think a reminder would be in order. Regarding the Turrets of Terror TLC, please be aware that you can only hold two 1day structure build tokens. Use em before you do prize pack 4.

    #mods #CM Chris Please find out how many base XP points will be issued to players completing the Base Race campaign. I think players should be aware if they're currently protected base (<80) is all of a sudden going to be unprotected again. Right?

    Well, none of those TLCs appeal to me. I've got my mantis where I want them and at this point, I'm only concerned with skirmish stuff so yeah..looks like I'll have some free time :) And that's just me, I understand others may still need to bring their mantis, base stuff etc up to par. Just saying thanks Kix, you reduced my bp chore list for the week :)
    This game is rapidly dying.

    with all the manticore tokens being offered, i would very much like to see the limit on the number we can hold at one time raised significantly higher than 10.
    This.  We are all currently using the shipyard to build for the next raid cycle, so can we get an increase to the manticore token max in order to build the manticores later?

    I said it last week, I'll say it again........STOP WITH THE 1 DAY STRUCTURE BUILD TOKENS as prizes or CHANGE THE LIMIT that we can hold.
    Also this.  With OP 11 coming out and the fact that you all stopped offering the 2 day tokens in the raids, can we get an increase on the structure build tokens?

    Why have I not found one word here from kix about PvP deflection being broken since the update. Laredo said he was passing it up. Someone did say the CM acknowledged the problem on Discord, but NOTHING here in the main thread. I barely have time to keep up with the forum, and am not happy that now I have to track yet another platform to find basic bug info :(

    I would like to make a note here as well Chris-we need to be able to hold more than 2 structure tokens so we can use them for OP 11. I already have 2 so I can't hold any more. Each FM and for these TLC's I have to waste the tokens because you have the limit so low.

    What is the Build Time on OP 11?  Reason I asked, is I am finally in a positions to start that insane 42+ day build on the Conquest Yard, I was about to hit the build button when I got a notification on BP's Crow's Nest about the OP 11.  So now I'm forced to wait even longer on getting into this whole PvP side of the game that you want players to experience.  Yet I'm waiting...  as I'm sure the OP 11 will be a long build but hopefully not 42 days long.  So I will need to start it first.  Changes are good, but hurry up and wait is keeping me out of PvP even longer.  You said you rolled out all the pieces for the players, well without being able to start building PvP hulls I can't obtain the missing pieces to even begin!

    More lies and bait and switch, they claimed they wanted to balance tier 7 pvp and pushed us up this hill... Just to toss out a new op and start rolling us down the tier 8 hill. 

    O well for pvp balance right.... So glad I spent my coin money on fishing instead. 

    Keep up the good work, maybe everyone will quit and you can shut the game down.

    Lol, then you might as well quit playing completely. They'll never stop doing this bait and switch. They know they can sucker you into it every time.
