They just changed modifier on e2 savage. WTF? Probably had low profit from savages this event. Meh.

Double WTF. I would call for a Boycott on buying savages. If you didn't buy them already, then don't buy them now. Randomly changing stuff in the middle of the event is way not cool. What can you expect really, continue the money grab.

When you buy savages you expect that having a team full of them will give you a massive advantage over a non savage team. The current savages were rubbish and we all saw the damage they were doing.

Probably a bit late for people to buy a full savage team now anyway as it takes a while to lvl them up. Maybe some people will pick up a couple to get around the boss' silence attack.

Chain buffing cyborg w/ primarchs is showing promise. When all goes according to plan, it'll hit for big points. As soon as the SRB proc manipulation hits, I'll probably be at 6mil on A/O.

Don't worry Alpha. I'm ready to take on the SRB's. We can still try to coordinate our attack. We don't have to finish Rank #1, just Rank #22 or less. Once we get a SRB schedule, I will try to set something up here for our coordinated attack...

Yeah. I have had 5-6M on A/O but also >25M. Its crazy luck dependent setup.

It's that damn silence attack. I swear everytime that stupid bird hits me with it he is 10/10 with the silence. Plus it still seems to silence even if he does Zero damage on the attack.

My setup has been quite reliable even with this stupid proc. I'm getting at least 13M per hit, and very often around 18M. Though my highest isn't that impressive, at around 23M.

Mecha Shinobi is basicaly dealing as much damage as Incinerate on average, except the variance in his damage output is much much lower. So I swapped my incinerate from the middle position to a side, using both mecha in the middle, and it's been good to NEVER hit for 6Mish. I get under 12M maybe once out of 10 and under 10M twice since the beginning.

I just high marked with damage output (post nerf, of course) at 19.5 mil.

Also, my two abyssal patriarchs are lifesavers. Their stun feature is the only reason I still have my sanity this event.

I second the Abyssal statement by sphinx. I only have one copy and wish I had two as the stun is awesome on this damn bird.

You must be very lucky with team depending on 4 buffers and damage through abilities.

I've been sterilizing his attack with Junker War Marshall. Sure it's giving away a slot, but most times he clips the silly bird's wings - nice & short. Then the rest of the crew cleans up the mess.

Actually I have over 65% of having 3 primarch to proc, meaning I get over 15M at least 65% of the time (+ some lucky 2 procs), and then over 18M 25% of the time (4 procs)
I score under 12M when I have 0 proc, meaning 0.8% of the time.

Then 3 of my mercs procs fairly often, 2x mecha shinobi + WL, so I only have 3 30% proc rate merc. All in all this team isn't so much random actually as it is not dependant on a single merc, be it buffer or dmg proc.

ARGH!! i was ranked around 20 atm too just farming, with 20k ally points.... missing on beta this time was just stupid supid stupid!!!
at least it didnt hurt too much to not play almost all day. just fell to rank 30. still a strange raid this time...

btw: still not sure if its worth giving a spot in the squad to a silencer/stunner... the boss doesnt proc too often as it would be worth it. On some rounds he procs multiple times, but they can count as those rounds your team wouldnt have proced shit anyway - but usualy max 1 proc per boss/round.

I don't have a pile of mags either...but this is the closest that I have come to a Lethal in over a year. So I have my pile of mags plus some genebound AC that I am going to spend out on this event. F*ck it. With all of TFB, both squads, running mostly in lethal range (or at least < 100) time to burn out on this event.

I have 140 or so mags. They are all going to burn to get someone a Lethal!! Ive never scored so high and I am likely going to double my current score with the ally points I have yet to redeem. Its all thanks to TFB so my mags are your mags!!

I'm sitting at roughly 350 mags. Seeing as I have a hearing coming up, I might as well burn 'em for the cause.

I just wanted to make a comment about stealing MVP on regular bosses.

I am totally fine with it and it seems that is the way the guys in beta have been playing anyways. To me it makes sense from a mags efficiency standpoint.

eg. If I hit a 38k hp boss for 12k feel free to try to take the MVP because if I really wanted the MVP I would have hit it again. Better a team mate get the MVP and the bonus points that will be shared back to me than some random. I know sometimes you get lucky and get a whole load of people that will hit it for low points to finish it off but that doesn't happen very much.

If we actually manage to pull this off and win ourselves some Ls, would anyone be interested in doing a trade with me that involves trading their L1 for 2 Kinetic Prophet L1s.

Not sure what the relative values of what either are so something extra might need to be added to either side of the trade to even up the values. I would be wanting to do a "fair trade" based on what people think the values of each are.

PM me if you are interested.

OK. I'd like to know what I am doing differently than you all. I know my mercs are crap compared to yours, but I never ever see the kind of damage numbers you are !mentioning. If I can hover around 30-50 the with what I have, I need to get my ass in gear and get better mercs!

Lol it was kind of rhetorical but right now I am running with:
Armaag v2 (for bleed effect), hunter savage, astro v2 (for silence), hunter savage, leader (Kennedy)
Elektra, f9, Thornspike, f9, switchback

Like I said, nothing special.

Well the easy answer is buffers - you aren't running any.

The easiest team to make is :

Attacker - Buffer - Attacker - Buffer - Attacker
Attacker - Buffer - Attacker - Buffer - Leader

Go watch some damage replays to have a look at people's teams and how they work. To get to the damage replay rankings you:
1.Open Event screen.
2. Scroll right to the bottom where it has the heading "Details" and select the rankings option.
3. This should then show you another rankings button which you should select.
4.The rankings screen is now open and it has a filter at the top to switch to dmg ranking view.

Have a look at Amerame's, caya's and drakezane's squads for a good example. Mine is not a good example as I have a bunch of chain buffing going on.

try to built yourself 2 more prims (even pact) and run an all atk team. the blue wasp doesn't do any good compared to a prim plus atk mercs. try to trade your single att mercs vs multi att mercs. even the old savages (lucion queen and the weaken guy from last event) will do more dmg then the astro. put your high dmg merc in the middle between the two atk buffer

SRB is here. So I just bounce off and the most I can do is Junior MVP. Lets work on helping each other hit regular v2 and V3 crows as they will get us more points. Maybe near the end we can talk SRBs.

@shark: agree with dan and akkabane. prim is the cheapest (good) buffer and there are a lot of cheap great multiple hit attack mercs out there
eg
Kidaj (15k att, 4heavy hits + silencing)
Armaag Hammer Guy (16k att, 5heavy hits + bleeding... [guys, this one is crazy...doing almost as much dmg as endal + the bleeding...and was sooo cheap...])
Na`Lac (15,5k att, 4heavy hits)

plus adding an oathbraker or two wont hurt maxing out the damage

Last Raid all SRBs were dead within 3 minutes as everyone saw them, even without the "need help?". but thats not happening again i think. you can damage your SRB a few times and noone seems to interfer.

No it is happening but there just aren't enough people playing to make it happen very often. I had a 50m hp boss that I discovered and it was dead by the time I had finished hitting it for 20m. Has only happened once to me though.

I'm with Zoar on this so far. It's far more cost effective for me to keep playing my own style of hit and run than to mass attack SRBs at this point. I'm gonna stick with the V3 bosses for now, unless its an SRB that one of you guys has requested help on. Literally getting triple or more points this way compared to SRB. With my mercs and style I'm still doing pretty darn well, so I'm not changing anything just yet.

Zoar is cranky cause I stole an SRB off him.

I will apologise, as in the first part of the session, I couldn't seem to find any at all and I just jumped on it. Towards the end of the session there were heaps just sitting there and no one was fighting me for them. Maybe have a go at getting some SRB in the second hour of the session next time. You might find it a lot easier.

I'm not sure really. Probably close to 15.

It was crazy. People kept doing like 2m dmg to them and asking for assistance.

I am way ahead on my mag usage targets for today so will skip the next session as I will be asleep (might make all your lives easier) and am saving the rest for session #3 today.

I managed to MVP a SRB with 9 mags for 45 million damage. Then I had to spend another 3 mags to kill it since nobody else would. I got 30k points for my trouble. Not sure it was worth the hassle.

I've ganked only 5 of them but it was more than enough to maintain my rank.

Looks like beta will score 4 L !
