    Like they say....Was the thought that counted so thanx Kix.

    Question i have is....when i scrap these new bats will i get those elusive gale4 & cormorants???

    I know, logic would dictate that any limited special/weapon/armour would normally be returned to you when you scrap a ship, just wanted to confirm that will be the case.

    many thanks for the new free bat fleet but folks should always be aware of the gift horse;    my own build bat fleet with flag does the ssrb skirmish for 20 mins damage; as a test I used the new 5 bat flt and lo and behold took 50 mins damage.

    It is always NICE to get something from kix but no good deed goes unpunished, ie:   the fleet aint as good as some are expecting but much better than a lot had.

    In summary:   many thanks and merry kixmass

    Everyone is getting them. They have Hyper-30 and the Hydrofoil Tac Shield, as well as a Comorant Anti-Torpedo and a Gale Defense IV.

    Not a bad thing to have two bat fleets. Kill one in raid and get it repairing. Use the other one on easier targets to grind more points. When first fleet is repaired, start over again.

    The kix bats only do half the damage of two of my bats and a tiny bit less damage than the two cm bats that I built. 

    I like that the kix bats didn't take from our limited items like past ships have.

    Scrap them later for the hyper 30s.

    So kix bat and have some fun.

    Also, it's merry Christmas, not merry kixmas.

    Probably intentional. If they send out the Flagship, and someone already has it, it causes a glitch, since hte limit is one. {The same thing happened when the sold the Gutspill Phoenix. There was an Offer with just the Flagship, and one with the Flag plus full Fleet. If you got both, it caused problems.}

    An alli member logged in this morning and got the five bats. He also got the tokens. Everyone else only got the five bats.

    Seems like kix should give everyone the tokens or nobody gets them that didn't do the tlc while it was active.

    Yeah. The pop up says the Bats and Resources, but many are not getting the Resources or Tokens.

    Don't look a free horse in the mouth.    I for one am surprised with the gift, especially right before a raid.    This will help a lot of people out to be able to compete in the raid this time.  Maybe they will be able to get the new hull and help them get caught up in the game.   This is a great gesture from Kixeye, they didn't have to do anything.
    It is a nice gesture even if in error with timing.   However,  I for one did not get the bonus fleet nor all the resources and tokens.    The point that a player that chose Razors and now received Bat fleet versus a player that now has two Bat fleets creates game imbalance is valid.    Never mind the tokens ........

    I would like to say thank you also. I know it was a hard decision but then doing the right thing is sometimes very hard. I bet the repair coin goes up too.

    Not realy feeling bad but this gift is literaly garbage and will end up getting just scrapped, i already got booth fleets, an razortail and an batray fleet booth with flagships and booth skulled, i just only got resources while everyone without an batray fleet got an nice gift.

    Kixeye gave it out because some people are "disadavantaged" because of the the bug campagne, and now they disadvantaged everyone who already got an batray fleet.

    Batts do the Razer target adequately well with good driving, much better than Razers do the Batt target.

    Kix can do what they want, there will always be players who complain and start crying

    quit your begging and crying and accept the free gift for gods sake. The specials alone on it are a huge advantage to all

    Whilst I'm very happy to get a reserve fleet of bats,  CM Chris did say we would also be getting a stockpile of resources.  Now I have seen that some have received resources and some haven't, me included.  I would just like some clarification if everybody will be getting the resources or is it random, or just a chosen few?

    THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU KIXEYE!!!!! What an outstanding set of gifts! It would have taken me till next year this time to have a fleet this awesome! To be honest, I don't know if I would have an Apollo fleet. LOVED that buy. That and the Tideseeker fleets. You messed up on a raid a month ago and gave everyone 10,000 points. THANKS!! The tokens were an amazing set of gifts as well. I had very low goals for today's raid. Now, the sky is the limit. THANK YOU SO MUCH KIXEYE!!!!! The last year or so you've really listened to feedback and have made major changes (FM missions are perfect - don't change it) and it shows. Don't listen to the punks...THANK YOU KIXEYE AND KEEP IT UP!!!!

    In the pinned posts, they have already said that the "gold" package that went out - the one with the Brennus Flag and four fully ranked and loaded batrays, the ship build tokens, the structure build and repair tokens, the resources, and what ever else that a few got, but most didn't, was an error made yesterday by Kix and was retracted shortly after it was made. The ones that logged in, for whatever short time that the "gift" was live, were able to claim the gift before it was retracted.  Its not like they intended to give some more than others - it just sort of happened.
