Banner - 50% extra defence when attacked by a player using a sniper weapon.

ruddy hell.


Apart from the fact that battle pass insists on multiple levels needing "defeat x bases with a sniper rifle", which is impossible without using consumables because there are no decent powered sniper rifles (there are exotics that look and act like them but arent classed as them).. you now want to stitch us up even further?

That banner has little actual value. The number of attacks with snipers is very low so you would be better of with one of the older flags. Top end player against a top end base will have to use a couple extra bullets but this is hardly the barrior that it would seem at first glance.

That and they are selling the disease and the cure. They give you a combo that lets you down a 7* in as little as a single shot and then sell a banner that turns that into two shots. Big whoopty doo dah.

Two words... Sleeping Gas.

Even with non-sniper weaponary equipped, many have them and are not afraid to use them.

GET RID OF IT!!!!! And while you're at it, get rid of the Karma tasks too.
 

Not impossibe at all. By the end of each and every BP season, my squad has managed to defend my base, to accomplish this task. fyi my current base defence sucess rate is 13%.

Well please divulge your secret for forcing other players to attack you at least 230 times after Tier 9 opens.

The point here is that you aren't "doing" anything, other players are. This task should read "hope 30 other players attack your base and lose", because this is what is really happening. All of the other tasks require YOU to do something, not just sit back and passively wait for another player to fail.

I was merely pointing out that it is indeed possible to accomplish the feat of "Defend your base".
Your supposition that it would take "at least 230" is flawed as it is based upon a static figure of 13%.

Sometimes I can have multiple, consecutive "Successful defences" in a row hence my dynamic rating may be as much as 50% or more..

So it could take as few as 60 attempts or less on my base to as many as 230 or more.

Am I missing something here? Why can't you and your clanmates just arrange to attack each other and lose on purpose?

And how about this? I've heard that losing on your own "Test Defense" registers on your percent loss. Maybe someone should try that.
