Raid - Trial By Fire

Upcoming Event: 58, TrialByFire the Raid, will start on 2014-01-23 10:00:00:00 MST and end on 2014-01-27 10:00:00:00 MST

Top 2 prizes:

  • Vindicator Hull - The Forsaken have invented new technology to counter Reaver fleets.
  • Brimstone Missile (leaked photo from robot last week?)
Other:
Reaver Chaingun1-3 fell out of the files (sure they'll be back).

Targets:
15 levels of Reaver Fleets to fight, all group together at this time.  Doesn't appear to be A, B, C type stuff.

Prices and Prizes:
Nothing yet.

I believe we'll be able to redeem 4 things total this event.

Update:  1/17
Think you can go through and redeem twice.  Will have to go back and look at some old events to make sure, but think that is what I'm seeing.

May be group bonuses, just nothing in the file yet on them, need to compare to older files.

    3. Guess theres a clue in the name The 'Vindicator' Hull

      To exact revenge for; avenge
      All speculation of course....
      Maybe its something along the lines of the the crew which makes your ships stronger the more damage they take or simply a ship which becomes more aggressive wiht more damage. Then it could just blow up similar to the Unstable Core or even more powerful than that?
      Guess we'll understand a little more when xnih can work his magic some more :)

    4. Yea i was more of kidding for the fact that HS pretty much rendered every base useless to them for a while. I am just not getting something to help defend against them. also with it being a 4th tier prize it would seem like a ship that will be for fvf and not for bases since most good baser ships are in 5th tier prizes

  2. Brimstone missiles eh? It appears that Kixeye are using one set of names to cover all of the units and tech in all of their games at the moment (Brimstone missiles were a prize in the December event in War Commander)

    When you say redeem 4 things is that per tier (if there are tiers) or is that overall?

    1. I'd say it looks like we can redeem a total of 4 prizes based on what I see currently. Some of these settings I never dig into much, was something new I noticed today when there wasn't actual prize info there.

    2. Can you tell from the Brimstone's ID if it's a turret or ship mounted weapon?

      Delete
    3. ID's aren't out yet, info is from a different "source". Also, been a bit harder to determine that of late since they introduced the reaver stuff, things aren't nicely ordered as much as they once were.

    4. the brimstone missle is a base turret they leaked photos on Facebook

    5. Total of 4 prizes? so that means no tiers and most likely be points based Keep us informed xnih your doing a great job

      Delete
    6. Remember this is all how it sits in the prize file now, since it is so "empty" it is quite possible they'll change it once they actually put some info in there.

  4. If i remember in november's raid briefing, they said that was the format going foreward. That was an equipment store type, but could only get 1 BP. If i'm interpeting your post right Xnih, we could possibly get 4 from each tier. I'm going, by whats i read from kixeye in nov. and what you have shown here. Thanks for the info
