I have to comment that I find it funny that all the ratings on the base upgrade post are "thumbs down". Not one positive rating. Why is this? Constantly players complain that they can't stop base attackers no matter what they do. Even though there are people that do this relatively effectively-allowing only a top player able to defeat the base-the way it should be. It should never be impossible to stop a good player who has the proper skill needed. Yet they upgrade base defenses-which they do periodically and they aren't happy. You just can't please everyone. We already know there will be Tier 12 Conqueror hulls coming along- with an upgraded Infiltrator soon. The way it's always been.
