Thread: [13 Nov - 18 Nov] Tactics Workshop Rewards Event -- Primus Invasion Battle Courses

    I think Anakin misunderstood my question. Going to the outer planets to encounter escorts are a given. My question pertains to a pattern of appearance of the escort ships between the 4 possible spawn points in each wave. Knowing the pattern, I wont have to guess where to position my fleet saving me credits if I decide to teleport in.

    Here is the pattern per wave. It is not 100% accurate because there are slight differences between waves coming to any of the planets from the same point. I will refine it in the coming weeks, but this is what I have so far.
    To the best of my knowledge it is the same every week.

    Great job Sofer, but note it is the pattern for the 2nd invasion. On the first invasion ML001/ML002 get 1st wave and the opposite worlds get no wave

    the same conditions means absolutely identical but only escort types and wave number.
    2500/5 or 7-8 (yes on this number i did 3 billions in one attack few times)
    first on the planet
    the same fleet and formation
    the same coats and 50% boost

    watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkU1HMoJPxM
    coats lvl-2 and even coats + 50% boost doesnt explain 100,000,000 primus hit absorbation 3-4 times in a row
    i would understand 4,000,000 damage even 5,000,000 BUT NOT 100m few times in a row

It is done for equal chance for all levels but at the moment it is not well balanced. It is the same with IC. There also the enemy force is scaled to your level but level 99 has a much easier time than level 100.
    it was always so that border lvls have some "easy way" comparing to early x/10 lvls

    If you do it only for the R6 then definitely not. I don't suggest to use 5 lvl2 coats. I suggest DEF at minimum and DEF, HP, SATK at maximum should be lvl2.
    They should be used only to get top10 or better places. If you have no chance then it is not worth the coats.

    You are right. It is funny. Absorbing 100M damage a few times is definitely a bug

    So, after yesterday's Primus Invasion I can confirm for whoever is interested: If you have a strong Primus fleet you can get the R6 easily without spending 1 credit, but you give up the R5.
    My Primus fleet can do ~5B damage in 30 min. (60 turns). With it I ranked 858 in damage (713M) and didn't kill even one ship so no kill board ranking, thus better than 1400 in damage gets me the R6 but not better than 2000 in kills so no kill prizes.

    This is the cheapest, most effective way to participate if you don't have a strong enough fleet to reach the good damage prizes. Only if you have a strong enough Primus fleet. I guess anything over 3-4B in damage for 30 min. should do it.

    Here is my updated table after yesterday. I still need to further refine it slightly, because some of the waves are not identical for both planets.

    Sorry. Great remark Kupa Loids. I forgot to mention that this is the pattern for the 13:00 event.
    I don't participate in the 01:00 so I don't have the table for it. I love my sleep more than Primus Invasion

    Ok so the whole event is very complex, there is still a lot to figure out. However here are a few tips that will give you the best results for now:

    -You are below Lv80 and have DA:
    Let DA shot first go full PVP, only focus on escords thats it!

    -You are below Lv90 and have DA:
    Let DA shot first go full PVP, if you have Annica Lance use them aswell and use them to protect the rest of the fleet in the back lines

    -You are lv90-99 have DA and a very strong fleet:
    Do the same as below lv90

    -You are lv90-99 and you do have a normal fleet
    Build your normal Primus Fleet to the best of your ability and attack as many Primuses as you can :-)

    You are Lv100 and have less then 160million force:
    Build your normal Primus Fleet to the best of your ability and attack as many Primuses as you can

    -You are Lv100 and have more then 160million force + very high tech:
    To be honest probably still go for the Primus Fleet, if you are very confident go for DA+Lance in front line, coat up, use Power up and port intelligently

    If you fit in none of these categorys I do not know what is best, try to get shielding ships and hope for the best.

    Additional remarks are:
    -Look at top damage dealers to see which formations are best, there is no secret to it at all!
    -If you are above lv80 and meet destroyer escorts you are dead :-D
    -Even so a lot of people here said otherwise I am certain that it does not matter when you arrive on a spot everyone gets the same as long as you survive, for instance:
    If there are 100 escorts attacking a planet with 10 players everyone gets 10 kills as long as they don't die.
    If only 5 of those players are able to survive and the other 5players were only able to kill 5 ships the other players will get 15 ships each
    -Do not use revive it should never be necessary
    -First part of Invasion is better to get kills since a lot less players are awake

    Just to give some perspective:
    I have about 230million force, DEF tech maxed out and I spent about 4k credits and full lv2 coats for primus invasion (I might be able to go without the coats if I use about 5k credits)
    Before they changed the escorts I was able to do the same with lv1 coats and 2k credits.
    I get crushed by destroyer class escorts as anyone else.
    I have a second account which is lv89 and I could crush any results of my main account in terms of kill count even without coats.
    I average at about 150B damage and won first place a few times :-)
