    Regardless of how you look at this situation it is bait and switch. Shame on you kixeye. Always moving the goal posts to prove the opposite notion of "players first".

    If it was overpowered you should have tested it and adjusted prior to offering it and people spending to get it.

    To put it out, then nerf it after we've mounted it and then offer up tokens as an apology is just not acceptable.  

    You'll soon realize that this type of action will upset the players that coin the most.  
    i dont think it was so much over powered it was only doing around 10k more base damage than the 1st uav turret and didnt have a secondary damage like the 1st uav turret did.But a whale cried so it got nerfed.The big difference is the damage type which is penetrative which most most ppl dont have very much survival for on their basers because lets face it any missile turret you can put in doesnt even scratch the paint on the newer hulls.Then add the chaining effect of uav's with that damage type and its a different story.No matter which way you look at it tho its bad form on kixeyes part

    nothing to be surprised, kix must keep happy and safe theyr favorite (wales) pets and screw the rest of us as ussual, probably some of them got theyr basers slaped and lost theyr (shinnies) so the crying started to soon for nerf once again on theyr favor

    The kicker is if you charge back any CC transactions you paid to get it, you'll get banned and lose access to everything ELSE you ever paid for as well. There is no recourse here. :(

    Me: Here is how I clear the fleets out of the 500 with Silverfish
    Worz: Um... You're hiding behind a rock.
    Me: I'd hide behind a preschool if I thought it would help

    Well done Kix's, the purchase the new UAV based on original stats, invest time and resources to install 3 of them and what happens, you nerf them. Good sales ploy though, based in deliberate deception, the CEO will be impressed

    I am curious as to who has to complain before Kixeye reacts so fast to nerf a weapon in this way. Is it the whales who want to point and click on a base or do Kixeye actually research these weapons before they release them?
    I have 2 currently in my base and now I will have to waste my time and efforts in reconfiguring . All this after just 1 day.
    Please team, get a grip.


    Exactly.  Where is the quality control?   Too busy with HTML5, so in the meantime we suffer through this product.  Makes no sense.

    Following confirmation of reports that the Silverstrike UAV is overpowered against current tier fleets, the following changes have been made:

    What reports about Silverstrike being over powered  ?

    Seen many about upraded breachers and other conqs they have not been nerfef
    I would love to know who did the reports on it being over powered ? As the numbers dont add up to it being over powered if the fleet is armoured and used as it is at the moment on a base hit it is gives less damage than alot of our turrets ! If the attacker is running unarmoured basil's then yes it would of seemed over powered as the turret actually reached them :P we can all guess who complained as i know most of the players who are running unarmoured basils , same ones who are running subj's with one uav  ;) If kix can post the numbers to confirm it was over powered "ie no one could over come the damage " then i might accept it was over powered and then just be peeved about the prior release testing wasnt done , but till then i say one GD or simular has given into a friend in the game saying they had to spend gold to make the fleet work again  :D
    playing for fun , not for a 2nd job !

    So after years of playing with i.d. # 116909 I have to say kixeye has reached an all time low , with their bait and switch. To win turret we had to battle thru kixeye employee bases that had original designs to draw in more coin then to nerf it after most built them is an underlying scam wtf are you guy's doing now I have seen alot of crap from this company but these new owners have taken the cake so from here out kixeye this game will be played as originally attended FREE no more coin for your crap scams 
    why were you supposed to hit employe bases to  win the turret? I think the turret is inexpensive and could have been wonby entering thebounty  a couple of days ago and just keeping the grants. While i do understand the prize being changed  with reduced damage but this is a game where that has been does frequently and should not be surprised. The anxiety to coin for fast building and repair fleets is us deciding  to spend the money  not a need . Was the ability to play for free a design or a requirement to be put on FB and be there to attrack people?

    i got 3 of the new turrets  im not upset about the nerf  i relize that kix do this sort of thing a lot.hence why i havent coined for 5/6 mths    its nothing more than stealing from them thats pent money to get it....the answer is   STOP COINING   but still people will coin and moan   not me anymore

    not spending money in the game isnt the real answer, the answer is to stop playin for a few weeks months let the higher tier coiners have less targets to hit other than them selves, let the number of players dwindle until the company see's that we wont be taken lightly, sure you can still come here and read the forums like i do to see what goes on, just dont play the game until real changes happen.

    well think of it this way you get your money back, you get to kick kixeye in the face and even if they do ban you, you wont be wasting more money on thier game or be tempted to play thier game anymore, its honestly a win win in either situation.

    Glad I stopped coining a while ago and did not even participate in the Bounty. What a bunch of **** gobbling fraudsters to change things up as people are coining like crazy to redeem it and build it. I truly hope someone files a lawsuit against Kockseye

    One really has to wonder why you, after playing all these years, you would call this a "bait and switch?"
    Bait and switch implies intent - when the reality is: kixeye just screwed up again.
    You're in no worse position than anyone else that has this item - i.e. it was adjusted for everyone.
    To try to claim that you would have done something different from the beginning if it had its current stats is not being honest with yourself.
    If you're going to play coin free, you might as well not even play - something else that your years of experience must be telling you (therefore, I feel you are not being honest with yourself again.....)

    I would like a definition of "Overpowered"......

    Before the Nerf, mine {six} stopped ZERO Attacking Fleets.

    After the Nerf, they would not even do ANY Damage to Subjugators......


    I know the Kool-Aid Drinkers are going to chime in "There is no such thing.", but NOTHING  has EVER more clearly demonstrated the Attacker Bias........

    Hi all. Apologies for the delay.

    I've posted an official update thread. I completely understand the upset, and we implemented a recent buff in response to the concerns. Bottom line? We need to do more playtesting with the community, which  something we're actively pursuing. There is room for improvement here, and we are working to prevent issues like this in the future.
