PostSubject: TFB - May Raid Event   May 24th 2014, 8:04 am

Here we go for the May 2014 Raid Event!

 Arrow The Team Fug Bug (TFB) Official Charter

Important Tips:  Be very clear when you post what squad you want to join (plus the less movement between squads the better for me and logistics).  You will also want to be sure to list your forum ID, In-game ID and invite code.  Also make sure you are not at 50/50 for allies.  The current theory is that if you are 50/50, you will not show up in the search results.  Clear some room and do your out-of-event ally invites early before the event starts.  Plus if you can't find a player’s name, search previous TFB events listed here on the forum and you might find them with a different IGN.  Once the event does start, send your requests and be patient.  Don't Panic after 10 minutes and accept some unknown player’s request.  Give your squadmates ~24 hours to accept before trying to find a replacement.

Hey TFB members, welcome to Mission 19. Maybe we should do something special for Mission 20? If anyone has any ideas, please speak up.

On a side note, I have signed up for Alpha. But if you Beta players are all going to win Lethals this time, let me know so I can switch now  Very Happy

Please put me on Gamma again. All who are farming are welcomed to join Gamma since you will easily land above 500th position if you are pushing for ammo. And even if you don't, I will still appreciate the company.

I'm so lonely now. If it makes sense and there is still place in Alpha I'm happy to fall in, if not I'll go buy a straw hat and go farming in Gamma.

Daed: I would oblige and jump in, but I've moved to "rural" FL and don't know if I'll have the bandwidth to do any good - aside from being a points leech. Maybe when things settle down and I don't have to wonder what bugs I'll have to deal with tonight (insects & arachnids, not little D's coding issues), I can carve out some time to jump back in.

Rock On TFB!

Edit: Decided to clean up my rambly rant post.

If any of you read any of this post just read this: I STRONGLY SUGGEST ANY OF YOU WITH ANY SORT OF A HALF DECENT TEAM AND SOME MAGS TO YOUR NAME TO PUSH AS HARD AS YOU CAN!

So, some of you might know that across the L-running teams there is an agreement not to spend any money this raid, as a joint letter was sent to Dakota regarding a whole bunch of issues they would like addressed, one of which was the whole genebound res thing.

Now, apparently, no one can be trusted, so someone came up with the bright idea that no one at all should run for raid from any of these teams. This is being enforced across the L- running teams, with some sort of consequences if people do not comply.

What I really want is basically a savage less raid where the SRBs are not one shotted and you don't have your bosses stolen.

This is that raid because very limited people will have any savages at all - and that sounds like fun to me...

I haven't even seen it.

I have seen the standard reply they all got and were most unhappy about which triggered the ban on spending but that is all.

Other than the first paragraph, I'm not even sure what was even decided in that first post Dan. I reread it twice. Are they running or not? Are you? I'm confused. I get the boycott and its intentions, just not the rest of what you said. But I guess I don't need to either.

Sorry it was a bit of a ramble rant...

It is super confusing and last minute and stuff has changed lots of times.

Original boycott was just spending money.

On top of that the whole raid event is supposed to be boycotted as well because someone decided that people cannot be trusted to compete without buying res. Sounds like farming is allowed, but ranking in the top 30 is a big no no.

OK. So I am getting confused as to who wants to be where and why. At this point in time, the squads are the squads. If people want to join a squad, you have to post here and state your intentions.

@Rocketsword: Do you want to be in Alpha or Beta?

@everyone else: If you want to join a squad, post here. If you are already in a squad, I am not moving you unless you make a formal request.

@Alpha Squad: I plan to go full on attack this Raid event-using the limited resources I have to try to win a lethal. Are you guys with me on this? Plus I could really use any version of a War Stallion for my squad if anyone has one to trade (just PM me)-thanks.

Raid will start today, just a quick reminder, last event beta got 4 L (can we beat this ?), I started the event with about 1600 mags, and finished with 950, and I finished 15 with 7.1M, you had to get 4.6M points in order to score a lethal, meaning you needed to spend about 250 mags and have a decent team and decent mercs(scoring 20M+ on a regular basis).

So IMO you shouldn't attempt an L run unless you have at the very least 200 mags before event start, and even with 200 you'll need to have a team full of L chaser + be smart about spending your ressources. On the other hand you can farm 200 or 300 mags and be ready for next raid. I think it's best to score a L once a in while, rather than coming short every time.

@Amerame: Thanks for the statistics. But one thing to remember is that during that Raid, while slightly weird, we did have a team or two show up with full squads of event savages. If these teams and their savages are MIA this event, then who knows what you will need. I know that I have less than 100 mags but I am going to go all out. F*ck it. This game is nearing its end of life (at least for me) so to quote the Kurgan, "It's better to burn out than fade away!".

I will stay in Gamma and try to farm as much as I can since I only have about 17 mags. It will be easy to avoid collecting rewards on a boss that I did some damage to but that someone else finished off. I am just not sure how I can avoid collecting rewards for bosses that I finish off. Is that possible? Can I exit without collecting? I assume the purpose of not collecting is to delay spawning stronger bosses so that you can get all the mags (and possibly the fusion cell if you happen to kill the boss). If there is more than this, I would appreciate the advice.

Im sitting on about 80 mags, I dont feel confident enough to make an all out run with those. Maybe after farming the first 3 days though Gamma might make a surge....lol.

Hi Zoar. I looked at Dan's first post again and if I understand it correctly Beta will be full with caya joining. I will be happy if you add me to Alpha which means there will be one spot open. Bear in mind that I am closer to the European timezone though. I am quite keen to see how this pans out.

@Rocketsword: It is all up to you. As far as I see it, you were signed up first. Plus I don't see any other players posting here to join Beta. As the start of the Raid event approaches, you should make the call if you want to jump to Alpha or not. I mean technically the players Dan is talking about don't need to join any team as they already have their own squad...

For players currently in Gamma, do whatever seems best to you. Since you ended up on the Gamma list because I made the suggestion of farming together, I want to be the first to say that you can feel free to go Beta, Ronin, or whatever. I know that I will definitely not be in a position to push during this event, and I am committed to farming all the way through the event. I am also expecting to attain <500 but I am not assuming the same from any other Gamma teammate since you were placed there with the understanding that you would be farming only.

I can definitely try to push for a L this event. Depending on how well I do the first half of the event, I may stop pushing though, we'll see.

Sorry for my confusing post if that's what is causing the issues.

I sent a pm to Zoar and I must have misunderstood his reply.

Basically, I am in a full raid team and was seeing if we could run under the TFB banner as Beta.

If it's all too confusing ignore that part of my post...

Regarding chances at an L:

At the moment, the only organised teams that I know of that are pushing for an L are Alpha and the team I am in.


Regarding the information about the boycott:

I am looking to try to get copies of the emails sent to Dakota to post up here. Apparently EverydayNYC was meant to be making a post about it all but that does not seem to have happened yet.

I'm already playing.  Requests sent.

Final Note for Alpha: If you are still without that final event ally, just let me know. I have a list of non-forum, non-TFB players who might still have open slots. Same thing applies which I say every time I make this offer-YMMV (your mileage may vary).

Also I guess I was confused about Dan's crew running as our Beta squad.  No one posted here so I was unsure if the other players wanted to run under the TFB flag or not.  I certainly believe that you would all finish in the event under Rank 250  Cool

So far 1 account has been found with a bunch of savages on it. Ign: bottin.

No idea who found it or how they found it. Have to wait and see if it is a one off or there are 5 more where that came from.....
