Top Fleet types to use. Currently Engine Subs with instant repairs seem to be doing the best against bases. Coming up second are Du4 Sea Wolfs with thuds 17.5 Min's per ship. Best chances of soloing bases are the ones that are 2-5 levels below your own. The higher the base level the stronger the base defenses & the stronger the fleets you'll face. When attacking a base, come in from the side. If you come in from the bottom BOTH defensive platforms will fire at your fleet at the same time. If you come in on the right or left side you can take out that side, then target the other defensive platform moving across the middle of the map to it. With HB1/Thud IV you can hit the main platform as you're heading to the final defensive platform on the opposite side that you came in on. Faster lower repair fleets are doing much better then stronger slower fleets they are just getting less resources per base. The trade off in using a stronger fleet is that you have to waste a lot of resources with your stronger fleet in repairs, but you can hit more bases at a time & gain more resources. If you do NOT have Sea Wolfs or Subs you can use Battle Barges with Thud IV & the highest armor available to you. Some players are reporting success at combining Armor Specials (Reactive, Albative, & Layered Armor) with an attack range increase or combat speed increase.

- Looted resources no longer count toward quota and leader board points.
- Draconian bases are numbered like player bases.
- Loot is given equally to all players in the same battle whenever any single Draconian platform or ship is destroyed. The more powerful the Draconian base the more loot is given from destroying it. Players will be able to over-loot up to 5x just as when attacking player bases.
- Up to four players can be in combat against a Draconian Outpost at one time.
- Battles are 'rolling' which means that players can join while other players are already in combat.

- A red glow around a Draconian Outpost means that the maximum 4 players are already in combat and you cannot join.
- Only Draconian Outposts support 4 player battles. Salvages, player bases, etc. are still single fleets, or a maximum of 2 players (attacker vs defender).
