Oh this is a thing - good thing I got a lot of questions about this event.

 

1. Is the Moon Race really going to take 3 months?

2. Is the Custodian really going to take 3 months to get?

3. Why is the pirate weapons bundle locked behind the pass?

4. Why with the diminishing returns on xenochip rewards from tasks.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

1&2 Yes. 3. It's designed as an event where players that buy the pass get extras from paint to avatars etc. 4. To encourage a more hands-on experience of the event instead of possible exploits.

Will players who have not bought the moon pass be able to get the Custodian if they complete every 1st and 5th available mission day? Or is the Custodian locked behind the moon pass?

Also why are the pirate weapons locked behind the moon pass?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

You should be able to obtain the Custodian parts for free if you follow the event. The moon pass is just a DLC for those interested in bonus features of the event, they should be available for everyone later when the event concludes.

I heard that the pirate weapons pack will be available for free after the event, is that true?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

They should be available later after the event ends.

One more thing I'm not sure I understand:

Now we can get ~150 xenos per day.
If I miss 1 day for example, in the next day I'll get 300 xenos instead of 150?
Is that right?
Because in the russian forum, dev said that we can complete all the stages (from current active phase) in a week. But how can we complete 30 stages with 150 xenochips per day for a week? 7 * 150 = 1050 xenos (need 3000 xenos for all stages). In this case the xenochips have to accumulate for 3 weeks that I'll miss, and on the 4th week I can get all needed xenos from completing the tasks within 7 days, i.e. ~429 xenos per a day? 7*429=3003

...or I'm not even close? xD

It was stated that you can make up for the time you didnt participate in the event, no numbers were mentioned however.

From the Steam page regarding :

"This bundle includes
Owners of this bundle will get access to additional rewards in the first phase of the “Moon Race” — “Into the unknown”. 

Does it mean the current Moon Pass is only for the first phase (30 days) and there will be more passess for the other two? 

 

If a person will complete some stages and then acquire the Moon Pass can he still collect past rewards?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

It is designed so even if you're late to the event, you can still finish the stages. The moon pass is meant for this stage for now.

@ORCA1911 You didn't answer this question.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Like i said, the event is designed so that even if you're late to it you can finish previous stages.

You can choose a ship among those that are not collectible premiums (ships that require premium ship parts to be built).

 

So this also includes DLC Premium ships?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Only the GS ships, not the collectible or dlc premiums.

@ORCA1911

Why can't i have the Loki with the 25th stage ?

 

In the previous answer to the question of this topic, it was say

 

You can choose a ship among those that are not collectible premiums (ships that require premium ship parts to be built).

 

But i can't have it

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Loki is a dlc ship.

Quite simple ORCA's statement was wrong. I did ask him about it to give him a chance to clarify and correct his statement, but it seems like he is back to ignore the Question to the Devs section. The DLC ships never were part of this event.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

All of the premium ship events in the past years excluded dlc and collectible premium ships.

Would it be possible to xenochip gain to be changed again? Currently it requires a large amount of time investment/planning to clear one stage a day in phase 3. For reference, this is how my day's progress usually runs by with the current form of xenochip gain:

There are no major changes planned for the gains, however there will be some minor adjustments. Stay tuned to the news.

When will ship paint/presets go back down to 50 GS? It’s been 500 while now, and that’s a bit absurd to charge for something that only changes appearance. And please don’t say there are “no plans atm” cause come on… a lot of players want to be able to customize their ship cheaper, and not everyone has 500 GS at their disposal… surely someone has to be thinking about a price change?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

There are no plans for changing the prices of customization items for now.

M'kay then how about this one:
 

Is anything ever going to be done about AoE spam on beacons?

 

Beacon denial is far too easy currently with some modules denying beacons for massive amounts of time and certain weapons being far too effective at denying beacons.

 

For example;

Gravitational lens shuts down beacons for 15 seconds at a time and due to its popularity it is common for more than 1 person to be using this module in one match.

 

Hazardous veil deals 20 thermal damage a second in a 1500m radius for 15 seconds, basically denying the beacon for as long as a gravi would but without the pull.

 

Crystal destabilization blocks beacons for 6 seconds

 

Crystalline suppressor blocks beacons for 6 seconds

 

Pulsar can block beacons for 12 seconds.

 

Look you get the point. Beacons are easy to deny and its absurd because there are four game modes oriented exclusively around beacons.

 

ORCA1911 (Posted )

So far there are no plans for changing those mechanics.

is there a way to request a deal like the 50% GS bonus we just had? i want to spend the money while i have it since i wont be able to in the near future.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

There is no way to directly request such a thing for now but there will be discounts in the near future, stay tuned to the news updates.

Psst - Orca. Does the new Destroyer have a charged precision weapon?

 

Ahem that aside - are the development team aware of why the Ze'ta is so popular/considered the only viable choice in the current version of the game?

 

The AoE bonus field and module destruction mechanics have been ignored in such a way that the older Destroyers (rank 8 + 11 and poor vigilant) have been long considered outdated. Are there plans to change this or is there the possibility for plans to be made to fix such a problem?

 

Are there plans to touch up Wolfhound (or archangel specifically)?

 

is the development team aware of how broken energy converter is?

 

Are there plans to change/rework/nerf e-con?

 

 

ORCA1911 (Posted )

It's a no on all accounts :)
