Greetings Captains,

Welcome to a brand new Battle Pirates forum. The purpose of this new sub-forum is to better keep you informed on future features that are in the planning stages to be implemented into the game. In addition, this is your opportunity to offer feedback about these proposed changes.

Each feature will have its own thread in order to make discussions more focused. Threads that are stickied are features/changes that have not yet been implemented. Threads will be unstuck after the feature goes live (or has been delayed).

This is your chance to be heard and to help shape the future of the game. *As this forum is designed to accurately gather feedback, the following rules must be observed (in addition to the regular forum rules):
  • Keep posts on topic. Any post that deviates from the subject of the thread will be removed.
  • Be specific. Regardless of which stance you take, it always helps to know specifically why you agree or disagree.
  • Criticism must be constructive. Criticism is welcome, but your opinion must be accompanied by a well-reasoned argument.
  • No insults, threats or excessive swearing.
  • No flame wars. People don’t always agree, but this is not the place for trash talking.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We want to hear a variety of opinions from many different players. Once you have made your point, you don’t need to keep reiterating it.
  • No polls. Please do not try to start or link to a poll on the subject. We are looking for reasoning, not voting numbers.
  • Don’t ask for release dates. In many cases, we will post threads here before the features go through testing, so there will not be a release date associated with it.
  • Keep discussions here. Do not start new threads in the General Discussion forum on the topics here. New threads will omit certain information and shows a disregard for others that have already weighed in on the subject.

Please take note that everything in this forum is subject to change. Features and balancing might be altered due to community feedback and game testing. It might also be possible that proposed features/changes posted here might be indefinitely delayed.

We are really excited to roll out the red carpet for this new forum and we look forward to reading your feedback. Have fun! :cool:

    There are still people that will probably try to create a poll in GD and link to it.

    I want to know if it is permitted to attack someone and then move your base to keep the person from getting revenge. I was attacked by 3 different people and when I went to their coordinates and they were not there, how am I supposed to find them.

    Hey swag, I think you folks are implementing some absolutely killer ideas, but I have a few questions perhaps you could answer. I would have posted them in the appropriate categories, but with a lot of the useless drivel some people are posting, you would most likely never find my questions.
    I have 4 simple questions:
    #1 - When are these changes going to start taking effect?
    #2 - By adding a base protection fleet into the equation of base attacks, will the attack timer remain the same or increase?
    #3 - Are the changes you are planning for the predators going to mean insane amounts of time required to repair them, like stalkers?
    and
    #4 - Will the 5 minute speed up button be removed, or will that still remain part of the game?

    BTW, I really love the idea of the spectator mode, awesome awesome idea.

    I think you should delete all posts by people saying "so when is the feature going to be added?"

    i LOVE this idea XD however i dont understand how the idea thingy works. If a mod sees a nice looking idea from wishlist, it is put onto this thread (by the mod) and people then say their opinions? (hence no polls). i was always thinking of a way how mods could easily read ideas without all the "lets have a ship that does 10k damage" and "lets have carriers even tho the mods gets annoyed by the idea". :D

    That means we can only give you feedback on what you dictate, which doesn't seem right.

    That is the point. This sub-forum is a means for KIXEYE to ask the community for feedback on specific features prior to release. If you have ideas for other new features, go to the Wishlist sub-forum. For most other game feedback, use the General Discussion sub-forum.

    One more rule seems appropriate: Read the entire thread before posting to that thread.

    Yes, it's a pain, but I've started working on just 1 thread, and in the first 9 pages I'm seeing multiple people asking the same questions and posting the same ideas. Clearly, if they had read through first, they wouldn't have needed to make that post. And without these extra posts, it would be less daunting for the next person to read through everything.

    Hey guys, how about working on some of the bugs in the game before adding new features. Like ships disappearing during battles, not being able to exit a battle without having to reboot, ships not responding correctly during battle against bases - sometimes the ships just move where they want to go not where you tell them to got. Thanks for your consideration.
