    Not seen this event before, I take it is for the top players again.
  5. And once again, Regular players have no chance to go near the hitacs, do the missions or have any chance to complete battle pass missions. The Hitac is again dominated by the top 3 clans
  6. Don't really know why would you even want to complete or buy the battle pass..
    The rewards are funny, they are so tiny it is not even worth the ammo or time.

    The only good reward is the 40k rsb and 40k hellstrom, that is it.
  7. This Hitac event is basically the same as the last ones, therefore: it's horrible as always. I am not going to waste my time to get popped dozens of times there.
  8. Thanks for putting every good reward behind the paywall of a battlepass.

    This event is completely useless to me now. Thank you Darkorbit.

    Dark Orbit really should be applauded - No other online game has ever catered to the same minority of players with events as Dark Orbit.

    They have turned Events into a thing dominated by a minority of the server population.

    This round of Hitac I think is especially good, the top rewards (Magma Drills etc) for this event would most suit up and coming pilots, yet these pilots will not be able to compete at a level where they could possibly hope to gain top rewards without spinning a credit card.
    Yes you can buy your way to the top rewards with a credit card BUT (from experience) the "chance" of getting a top reward is not worth the expense.

  10. Except one thing and that is it only takes one ticket to win and the event missions offer free tickets without even participating in the hitac so all i am saying is the little guy still has a chance.

    Hitac is interesting so far, I don't participate in it directly because I'm not strong enough, but do pop the UFEs who are low HP for fun. All in all, good event because all of the top players will be busy during the event, leaving the newbies able to farm in peace in the other maps.

    To make it better though, the Hitac ought to run through the upper maps instead, that way lowers aren't a war zone for new players. Doesn't make any sense why you would put this event on lower maps, noobs are going to be farmed more than ever.

    Event missions, so far at least give 1 "lottery ticket" and yes it only take one to win but the guy who only has 1 ticket is far less likely to win anything with a 0.4% chance than someone who does the event nonstop or spends $ and have hundreds if not thousands of entries.

    Hitac is set up to encourage players to spend money to increase chances of winning a % based random reward - Online gambling at its worst. As i already said, DO has outdone them selves this time by focusing the top rewards toward new/er players many of whom can't do Hitac and so the only other option if they want the rewards badly enough is to spend money.

    Sad thing is, DO is actively encouraging minors to gamble online for ingame items.
    DO actively state they monitor and restrict what players say in chat because children play DO - Yet they are happy to introduce those same children to online gambling.

    Which Citadel are these new designs for?
    I have Citadel Elite and got ⦁Citadel Epion (available as a reward from the Battle Pass objectives) but it isn't in my hangar.

    Is it only for a standard Citadel or is there a problem with Battlepass objectives paying correct rewards?
  14. I watched this morning as the same thing happened as always happens , the little folks can't get close. Hitac is the same as always, an event for the top few clans, everyone else is just fodder for them.

  18. I went in last night as a full uber player who plays the game using my mouse and keyboard. There is no way to even express the hilarity of the ships I see flying themselves show up in the hitac map shooting players in perfect x4/rsb/icerocket combos. We hit them with what he have and they take the damage all the way to the port. Sweet game balance. The autolocking of players and wild lag when on a map with the app users is great. Good job, well thought out and highly maintained perfect work on the QA team.

    You allowed them to BOT THE MAPS all year so now they get to use the BOT AMMO and BOT TOOLS on players.

    NO STAFF DESIGNER OR PROGRAMMER LOOKS OR READS THESE THREADS. The only thing you will ever see is *changed by volunteer mod* who is more than likely one of the bot clan members. Dont deny it we know way too many that play in the clans and magically show up banning players who call them out.

    (shhhhh dont call out a mod in his player ship its a bannable offense <seriously>)

    I can honestly say that even for UFE players (especially without a good clan) this event is no fun. It is nearly impossible to get the quest done because they require you to destroy a minion or hitac which means you have to shoot them first and then keep on shooting it until they die. Something which just isn't possible with multi-company-clans guarding the Hitac like it is their child. Combating them is no option either as it almost always ends up in a 2, 3, 4 or 5 v 1. And because they don't let you in their clan you are pretty much doomed when it comes to participating in the event. I guess the only 'benefit' is that because the rewards are so poor and nowhere near UFE equipment at least they won't gain anything but a few kills.

    Without solving the MCC problem or 5 v 1 fights in general you can introduce whatever event you like but it will never be accessible to the average player.

    Only for the standard Citadel.

    EDIT: another negative thing about the event: the exclusive Citadel design can only be equipped on the regular Citadel which has a nasty shield bug: its second config empties shield upon a config switch which make the ship much harder to use! This could have been easily prevented by allowing the designs to be used on the Citadel Veteran or Elite!

  20. The lottery prizes are meh. Prometheus lasers are better than all of the "new" LF4s. The prizes don't feel like winning something huge. I miss the 100 K Uri, more valuable thing like Hercules, Spartan, drone formations, etc. should be given out.
