I have started a new Battle Pirates Wiki on IGN: http://www.ign.com/wikis/battle-pirates . This wiki is still in the early stages but most of the basic framework is there. I need your help to fill out the wiki with vital information.

Now some of you might be thinking, "isn't there already a BP wiki?" The answer to that is "yes", however the wikis on IGN are much easier to navigate, make it easier to add videos and have better SEO.

Basically, I would like to see the best information in the Player Guides section make it over there. DON'T JUST COPY/PASTE. Make sure your formatting matches what is already there. We want this wiki to look uniform, neat and tidy.

This wiki will be linked to from our forums and potentially above the game!

If you have any questions in regards to adding information there, post them below.

    So, I see that square base, roll up and flatten it. Suddenly there's sector police everywhere, the noob is crying on coms and everyone's looking at me like I'm the bad guy? Shoulda built a better base. I'm also not allowed back in that neighborhood.

    You can add them underneath the individual entries for each building. If it is just general building information, put it in the parent Buildings section. Thanks for asking.

    Of course you are free to do that. But just an FYI, I will be overseeing the information and making additions myself to the IGN wiki, so it will more up-to-date.

    Those are IGN's banners, I cannot remove them. I'm pretty sure IGN would not link you to something that would give you a virus.

    Not being funny but should kixeye being do this as it is your job? plus what if players put false information on there to screw people over?

    The formatting needs to be altered so that the words don't clip into the sidebar.

    Ok, that's all good & fine, but if you want accurate information, especially on stats, why are the players being asked to add this info. If the accurate info is anywhere it's in Kixeye's possession.

    There are countless threads in the forums trying to figure out KixMath, some may work but most have no resolution. Please have someone in Kixeye pass you a file or printout with the relevant data, then we can really know the hit point value on say a lvl 10 Weap Lab for example or some other bldg that people keep guessing on for starters.

    As I said in the OP, I am looking for people that posted their information in "Player Guides" to move it over. The "Player Guides" section is mostly full of players offering their opinions on how to optimally play the game; it's not just a bunch of charts and graphs. People who don't know as much about the game as you don't want to stare at spreadsheets, they want to get veteran's opinions on how to properly progress.
