    Think you fixed my probs after all the new stuff you put on and I was having some corkers lol. But since the notice of new raid came up the glitches started again, base hitting a drag. But not as bad as it was all the same thanks.

    Been on here properly for the first time today and had my say, but real hard going wading through the trash that peeps put on. Better to be constructive or say nothing at all.

    Mods, is there an effort underway to repair the lag, white screens during battle and uncontrollable ships during battle? I've lost more fleets to system issues than PvP.

    i had the same thing happen to my d-75d, but after 2 e-mails, and 12 days, kixeye returned the mort to my intel lab. just keep sending them e-mails, try not to be too pissy in said e-mails, and u will get it back. several players i know have had this happen, and all had their weapons returned in due time. patience, friend, is the key, lol.

    kixeye i like the new adds u did for the bases but could u add a attack button for fleets thats hitting bases so we have a chance of catching fleets coming out of a base hit.

    well i must admit that the last updates sucks in my opinon , i have not heard any players in game say it was nice the fact that anybody can go and peak on battles against ur base gives all ur defence away in advance , removing the attack button really sucks now the cances of catching somebody coming out of a base is very close to zero chance , the good thing is nobody caught me coming out of bases since it got there , i love the fvf battles but they are almost impossible to get anybody attack me , and i cant catch them coming out of my friends bases no more like 80% of the fun in game has disseapeared -
    But i have also experienced that if u say something negative about what kixeye is doing the they just close the thread and kick ur post out . I had a problem with game for a while first kixeye replyed to my complaint that my browser was wrong in settings that was not the case , then they claimed that they were looking into it and they could see i was using safari as browser , now safari is not even installed on my laptop , so much for that , and finally after a month or so the picture that occured of my mercfleet everytime i launched it , wanished by it self , the boat was hanging in the water just over the radar and not allowing me to join a battle unless i made full screen first then i could move the boats

    My main gripes are the ; game lag, load and save time of the bases and the screen going into "skid-mode" and then losing my fleet.
    Before the changes I was having no difficulty opening salv 6s with Preds and Havoc 4s. Have the Drac fleets speeded up or are the Preds slower? Engine 1 and no armour

    Suggestion: Why don’t you have a part of the form dedicated simply to glitches?
    For instance I have reported this before and I am sure that others have also reported this also where their screen is either partially or totally chopped off. Can’t give you my user ID because it also is chopped off! Can tell you that presently I am a level 31.
    Item two…or should I say glitch 2 is that the screen gets stuck in white out mode where the curser cannot be seen and I cannot join in on the battles. Typical!

    It's great to see and know that you are working on new stuff for the game. But I wonder if anyone is trying to fix any of the glitches the game still has. For one I'm still irritated about losing the D75V. I gathered all the pieces over time. When I got the very last piece I immediately headed back to my base. I cancelled a refit so I could put the D75V on a ship. When I went to select the weapon there was nothing there. I checked the drac building and then I saw that the entire weapon had been lost. Not only was I short 1 piece, but all the pieces were gone and it didn't even show that the weapon had been started. Now that's frustrating and it really made me mad. That is really disappointing. Still nothing from support either, a week after I notified them. Nothing at all. So do you think that before you move on to providing new things you would consider fixing some of the old problems?

    Same thing happened to me with firestorm rockets. I put in a ticket, they said okay we fixed it and put it back. Nope. Still gone. Not that great a weapon anyway so didn't pursue it.

    Ok is it me or does this raid feel like the fix is on? I mean my ships are in range and they don't fire...not until I've taken multiple hits and lose a ship or taken lots of damage(mind you the range on the turrents now is insanely long. I even did a 180 and was nowhere near the turrent and I'm still taking hits!!! This raid is nothing like the others at all. All my ships have dip&peacemaker mortars normally when the edge of the range circle reaches the target your ships will fire even in FvF battles, but now when u watch the circle to see range and once the circle gets there....nothing! not until you are just about in range for your rockets to fire and cannons if you have them. Even close up I noticed rockets and cannons won't fire(some of my ships have auto loaders I know how long it takes to reload)
    I have BB and Levi's and I'm spending more time repairing than raiding. I understand bottom line Kixeye is a "business" and they are here to make money, trust me I get it, but this is not right I for one do not "coin" but I feel sorry for those or you that do I think you are being cheated and the prizes to me are not really worth it. I remember the 1st raids and if you won u got the HH or some other awesome ship, but later they made them available to everyone...not fair to the ppl who spent hours playing the game to win the ships only to have kixeye turn around and give them to everyone. I got the feeling that this will happen again ppl are spending hours playing to win the new sub and in a month or so it will be on the list for research and building...not right kixeye. You got a great game here kixeye make it fair and right.

    Well .. one thing that I've noticed.. It's not whether or not it appears that your outter target circle is touching the island. It has to be going through the middle of the base.


    I have Assault with sfb3 and @8 squares I can fire and not be fired upon by the "GUNS", however, at somwhere between 9-12 squares the island missiles are flying.

    Hey here's an idea. Stop with the new upgrades for ships and fix the things that have been driving us all crazy. Like the game glitches and make it to where we can chat in full screen mode, removing the banned players bases and if some players don't like the friendly bubbles then that's their fault. If you can coin bubbles then there is no difference. Sure there are alot more issues that others have been experiencing, so how about getting those fixed. Also bring back the salvage raids. The base raids are terrible and it seems the same people are always winning.

    ok... now I'm not sure why or what causes the triggering of the firing but if you have cut's or assault missiles
    you should be able to just click on the drac ship once it's done moving and it will engage and the drac ship shouldn't. Now just cause that ring touches the ship doesn't mean it's going to fire. My ring has to be at the mid point of the drac ship.

    I'd like to respond to the different highlighted areas of this rant.

    1. Chatting in Full Screen Mode - This has been talked about more times then Carter has pills. ITS AN ADOBE PROBLEM NOT KIXEYE'S ISSUE. Now that I have your attention with that. Adobe Flash has limitations in it to help make it more secure when used for Flash Games. One of those limitations is chatting in full screen. If you want to chat in full screen petition Adobe to remove this limitation or get BP Browser.

    2. Removing Banned Player Bases - This already happens every 30days of no activity. This also works for inactive bases.

    3. Friendly Bubbles - They have addressed this issue, now it takes 5 buddy attacks for your 1hr bubble. Buddy Bubbles are annoying, but necessary as well. If the bubble mechanic was not in the game, then players would abuse the system targeting players they don't like & attacking until that player quit. It happens, now, but b/c of bubbles they don't quit immediately meaning you now have a farm that sticks around for a couple of months versus a one time hit.

    4. Bring back salvage raids - These were fun, but at the same time monotonous & boring. Not to mention the fact that there are usually less salvages & everyone + their grandmother is hitting them so in an active sector there are usually no salvages, & you have players checking bookmarks of where groups of salvages at a level they want spawn. Oh, & you have to bank the resources you collect to get credit/points for the salvage...so low level players with small fleets = small points high level players with large fleets = large points. This also leads into #5 on this list.

    5. The Base raids are terrible & the same people are always winning - These two go hand in hand. You are correct, if your comparing past raids with each other. The same players are the ones that kept winning, the cc'ers, & high level players who've been around for awhile & have good high level fleets keep winning the grand prize. What you are wrong on is that there are new players that won the hull b/c everyone has a chance if they are able to put in enough effort. Same with the quota prizes. You had on average 16 players per sector winning the hull vs just 4. There were a couple of rare sectors (sector 1) that had over 100 people win the hull. I also enjoyed the multiplier as well since it really helped out when I couldn't play do to family obligations & work. The only downside to this raid was the amount of gutted level 25 & 28 bases though it was my own fault for only having one fleet ready that could clean them up. Next raid I plan on having several fleets that can take out just the platforms so I can gain points by cleaning up the gutted bases in my sector. Thats an easy 70-90k per base.

    Well kixeye, a big thank you for this last raid, great experience and lots of fun. just started building my new toys ;-) Hope the next set of raids stay on a quota based hull prize, making it available to everyone who wants it bad enough and packs some firepower. Good Job to the team, and the many winners of the new barracuda. I heard noise about a dreadnaught for the masses? any chance its true, that would be awesome
