Event Overview Edit
|“||Vsec thinks the unrest will subside. Show them it won't.||”|
|“||Fortify your fleets, and launch countermeasures.||”|
Countermeasures is the 9th event to occur in VEGA Conflict. The prizes were first hinted at in a Battle Vortex video. In a post by The Real LXC (aka Lex), it was confirmed that the Facebook event invite was automatically and unintentionally sent out for the 6/11/15 date. However, the event was not ready, and KIXEYE had to reschedule the event for 6/18/15. As an apology, KIXEYE reran the Espionage event again instead. This event can considered one of the harder ones. Like the previous event, Arms Race, the ships in the fleet use long range weapons that cant be kited.
The fleets consist of 2 Corinthian Cruisers using ECHO Rays, 2 Eagle Frigates with Vector Torpedo, 2 Zeal Battleships with Gladius Driver, and a Ragnarok Carrier using Fighter Squadrons. The key thing to note here is that all the ships, except the Corinthian Cruisers, have low armor, making them weak to phased projectile shots.

Event fleet layout Edit
- The VSec Officer in the photo calls himself Bishop, marking his first ever appearance.
- This event was pushed a week back because of problems that Kixeye encountered when fielding the event. To make up for the inconvenience to the players, Kixeye ran the Espionage Event instead and the Countermeasures event a week after that.
- This event was one of the Hardest events ever, because of the large amount of range and damage possessed by the Vector Torpedo eagles, however, players found a simple exploit and that was to kill the 2 Corinthian Cruisers with ECHO Ray and then run for the remainder of the battle. When this fleet was reused for Warfront, that exploit had been removed by the points curves and the change to the AI, which made the event extremely difficult.
- The top prize in the event, the Osprey Frigate, has never appeared in a single event as a classic prize ever since.
