    Level 10 Targets are easy enough, but seriously kix, can you please stop having targets that allow ships to drive off the edge of the map!!!!!

    Thats what happened when I first tried it. But then I realized you can Sheep Dog the dutchman and get it stuck at one of the rocky islands.

    i love this 
    Hi Pirates,

    **Slight adjustment to the recent targeting update (to clarify): All weapons will continue to target the closest hull. However if multiple ships occupy the same space, the first ship to arrive will continue to be targeted.

    This change went out in the 9.44 Update, apologies for the late notice.

    damage has increased getting only 5 x 131s now instead of 7 or 8 131s. funny isn't it how an update not meantioned is suddenly meantioned after the fact because people complained about a bug.. which is actually a new thing as intended.

    well if i try a 137 and i get more than 6 hrs of damage that will prove the damage has been increased.

    by the way same pathing same hugging the mountains and same crew.

    nice spawning 3 dutchmans with same amount of hp that just shows how stupid kix really is 

    you only need to kill the 1st one and Its drones to finish the target.  You can ignore the other ones that spawn.

    If you are going to pitch an event as a "fun" event... you might want to include some actual fun. Targets are beyond boring, damage is way too much for way too little, and the "new" armor does not appear to make much (if any) difference. As many have stated, the dutchman ships are exploiting an issue where they can drive off the visible map. Another fail from Kixeye, *sigh*.

    What is up with chasing that glowing green bastard off the screen and then you're just at the mercy of his guns and you don't even know for sure if you're hitting dutchy. This is just STUPID! You just fire on the [email protected] until he dies all the while taking guaranteed forced damage. You have to "drive" the POS away from the edges or he runs into the green mist or off the map completely. What in the literal [email protected] is that all about stillkix? Fix this S h ! T!
    This game is rapidly dying.

    Love that you can't hide behind the rock formations to mitigate some of the torp damage from the little adds. They fire torps right through the rocks!

    My Big Green FCKR drove around the outside of the screen and then got stuck and i couldnt get to it.  That was the one i needed to kill in the level 14,  Had to fight off 3 more big ones and their little buddies before i could kill it. FIX YOUR **** GAME

    My biggest complaint about this Flying Dutchman event:  RANDOM PRIZES  This game is too costly (in more than just $$) for Kixeye to do Random prizes in these chests. 
    It's 4:20 somewhere!

    Sons Of Poseidon TLC borked after update as well.

    Enemy ships getting hung up, and not pathing as they were in earlier prize packs.


    i noticed that also.  also, either the damage increased or the survivability of the npc ships was increased because previously, in the first 4 mastery rounds, i was able to get my u3 sats + flag halfway into encounter #7 before they died.  today on the final round, they only got halfway into encounter #6 and died.

    luckily, i have the free saturn fleet kix gave us as back-up, but today it nearly died trying to complete half of encounter 6 and all of encounter 7, where before the same fleet only took a couple hours damage finishing up half of encounter #7.  and, as you say, the pathing was completely different from all previous runs of the same campaign.

    i was able to complete the campaign, but there was definitely a huge difference between today and the rest of the week before it.
    If greedy kix sees you're suceeding without coining, they will change rules no matter if game is ongoing...

    do you need the suppressor for these targets? If so, what are you using it for? Do you hit the dutchman with it? I'm seeing most ppl use just a silverfish fleet in 10's and 14's. 
    They told you to use suppressor so that you can take damage and coin repair...

    a defence platform is 1 day 15hrs for lvl 10.. so how do they work out 3 days per platform? or is it 3 days total? confusing..
