    I would love to see a current T7 or future T8 countermeasures in FM....
    Gale IV is so much better than all other anti mortars   can we get a non limited anti mortar that is nearly as good as gale IV similar to how phalanx anti missile IV is nearly as good as missile def sys III

    So no explosive syncdrive? seems odd since most of the damage in the raid was from explosive. Also, can the limited be bumped up to 2 claims a week? otherwise we wont be able to get more than 3 out of 5 ships refitted with them by the raid.

    What, didn't you coin your fleet, that's what you are supposed to do. Can't help if you don't play the game correctly :P

    No. of claims per week on new content - "1"

    What a freakin' joke....This is the ONLY MMO i know of that limits the tech that you can have, even if you have the $$ to buy it.  If someone wants to coin a refit on their entire Silverfish fleet on day 1 of the FM with 5 items of new tech...let them.  And you wonder why you might be having $$ problems, Kix?

    The trouble with 'common sense' it's not so common and most certainly it is none existent in some quarters. Why on earth are we restricted to 1 special per week that is most obviously intended for the Silverfish and Steelplate? If as a business you wanted to make more money then why are not more of them released ahead of the next event? Especially when there are a lot of people who will coin the lot.
    This sort of decision making is not conducive to a better gaming experience.

    What a GOOD IDEA KIX!! No D-7X, or folded armor(or maybe you'll say the hydrofoil as the substitute? Nah..... The heck there. We need a better thing than what is given here! Like, just get serious! I know most might only have bat rays, however give a spare to those that only have razortail(Which means, they in dire need of the explosive synchdrive), or at least give a better number of redeem. You planned to do the raid once a month? Fine, however by that time, we only had four ships, not the entire fleet to be done with the specials, with YOU giving the limitation like this. Slack it off a bit, please, make it redeemable twice or what. Loosen the burden of player, kix. Now it's not only SY builds keep haunting at the horizon. Another massive exodus is the other thing now might be around the horizon somewhere.
    In the end, it just down into maths, pure maths. We just don't really know how their math works.

    It doesn't take 30 days to build silverfish.  Not even close.  Full build is less than 18 days, with 4 of the D6 armors.

    No, but then, neither can the fleet be done in 30.  Hell, no fleet has been able to be completed in under 30 days since...uh....mercury, maybe?*

    I mean, with tokens you can do the whole silverfish family, completely outfitted, in about 70 days (18 days times 4 ships + 23 for the flag = 95 days, minus 18-24 days from FM tokens).

    * I take this back.  The garrison build time adjustments made a fleet of DNXes able to be done in like 3 weeks.

    Why in the heck are the new concussive tech items limited to one claim per week when there are only three weeks between now and the raid?  It makes it impossible - like, literally impossible - to have a fleet equipped in time for the raid, and it's only a two-raid series, right? That means that it will be COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to have an equipped fleet ready to go before we have to switch gears to the next raid.

    I defend Kix/Stillfront game design quite a bit, but Jiminy H. Cricket this is a dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb move.
    Not just concussive tech. Im', lvl 51 and building 1st icebreaker. Want to put on Charged Zynth armour C1X and C1M but limited to one each per FM. No point in coining build either as have to wait for next FM to finish first hull.

    Think someone went a little overboard with the spawning of the new Praetorian targets.  You don't need 2-3 targets surrounding each base in a sector, just looks wrong.  I'm sure just having these extra targets will somehow affect game performance.

    Could you shrink the size of the Legion Barracks and maybe turn down the spawn a bit?

    Map clutter is back! Targets are bigger than our bases on the world map. Please scale these down.
