    Kixeye might want to consider kixeye bases for higher levels. Tough bases that can only be hit by players 5 levels below ie a level 70 base can be hit by anything up to a level 65. Should there be success then recoignise the players, maybe by special blue prints found on each of the bases or their names be recognised ie Sir, Captain or Admiral before their name depending on the bases. With their being not travel restrictions they could have to travel from sector to sector to find these kixeye bases to complete the BPs or gain honoured battle names. The higher levels have nothing left to do but hit and bully the people like me (LVL 41) in the adjasent sector, there is nothing else left apart from the raids and to do what they want. Please DON'T get me wrong.. there are some lovely higher level players but there are lots of idiots too. They need something else to do.. this is just a suggestion.. not a complaint. It would also grow the game rather than seeing an end at level 65.

    I like the new suggested changes... unfortunatly we have lost a few players since the last change and level 40 bases upwards are now open to every level. Lost another tonight :( I though about it and nearly quit and complained as well but am trying the advice given but it is not doing any good again people like the level 57 that gave me a 24 hour bubble last night. At least that stopped the level 55 who was also trying to level me last night but he will be back tomorrow so I am not collecting res and I am not able to grow.

    I hope you like the suggestion for higher levels.. prehaps it could be across all player level

    "You're over complicating the crap out of it man. This is simple, first the travel is not unrestricted, were limited to the 100 were in so please stop saying that, second the complaints are coming from the level 40s getting flattened on the daily, so cater to them, this should not effect me. I'm level 55 and couldn't give two squirts of **** who they attack because they probably wont be able to hurt me. This is a problem that started because you think a level 40 can defend against anyone, and they cant. The solution to the problem is to restrict +/- whatever and quit trying to uncap things. If a level 40 was really capable of defending themselves they wouldn't be a target and none of them would complain. Changing all the rules again is just gonna cause more problems. Best idea in my opinion is to admit that the rules change part of that update was a fail and switch it back. Things weren't that bad before, I remember getting pummeled by ppl 5 up from me all the time, but i couldn't imagine being in that position getting hit by me right now. Others will call me different things but i have enough pride to not attack a 40 anyway, its not fair. I might as well be beating up school children. "

    ++++++++++1 million in my oppinion

    my neigbor plays and warned me that when you become lvl 40 (wheterver the old equivellent to current 40 was), be prepared to be farmed for a few lvl's

    Its a BP right of passage. i'm ready or atleast as ready as i can be with the amount of effort i want to put forth. let the base attempts start!!!

    I think this will be a bit more fair. As it stands now, I've seen a level 59 hitting a level 41... just a tad unequal, in my opinion.

    Theres been some good points made by all my opinion yes the way the game stands at the moment it is a bit unfair where all high lvls can hit a lvl 40+ (coiners) they have all the good flts coz some where down the line theyve coined a little *takes hat of to them they keep the game free* keep the same lvls for now add more flts what people can research differant types of turrets that should solve the prob if not resolve it back to the old style and hey we have new things aswell for the base and everyone is happy

    Kixeye you people need to learn when to leave things alone.. Had you not messed with base levels in the first place the only ones **** would be the 50's. Now you stuck you finger in it again and now youve open up every lvl 40 and above to regular pummeling by ANY lvl.. Are you nuts or are you just trying to get players to accept your dumb **** ideas on alliances? You plan raid to support those who can spend money, fine its there the can spend it how they want. BUT then with the ships, specials,weapons and features you sell (ie profit from) you excpect any 40's lvl to defend them self (no coiners i mean) You GUYS ARE WAY OUT OF TOUCH WITH YOUR OWN GAME.

    I'm a level 41 just got hit by a level 62, a 57 last night and a 55 last night. I am trying to do what kixeye are saying but not getting anywhere but more and more disheartened by this... the changes need to happen really quickly. I can't do the raid this time becuase I keep getting attacked constantly as is everyone in our sector, I can't have much res so I can't grow. the old faces are not on as much anymore if at all and our group is dying out.

    This is getting worse not better. I feel there is no point playing the game at the moment

    i totally agree steve although kixeye will always lean towards the coiners..Im all for hitting and being hit but when its from someone 16 levels above me (lvl60) with fully ranked DNX fleet that i have no chance of stopping the game starts to get a bit pointless.....PPl will say learn and get stronger but when your lvl44 you dont have the bp's to build a good raid fleet to win any good hulls ie...Goliaths and without them high lvl players can pretty much walk right in with hardly any damage.

    Here is how I see it: No base can't be destroyed, as long as my base is less desirable to hit or I can move what difference does it make. I was getting thoroughly pounded by 2 insector hitter alliances---changed my base design to cause more damage, upped my base weapons to cause more damage, and moved. Result: 8 wonderful days with no hits. There is an old joke about campers being chased by a bear and one asking, "Can you outrun a bear?"The answer was, "I don't have to outrun the bear, just you." Well my base doesn't have to stop every flt, just cause more damage and be less desirable than yours.

    My opinion is that it won't matter what the players want or think. Kixeye is going to do what ever it takes to make the players coin more. So what is the sense in this thread?

    This is crap................I give up with this game, I'm a lvl 42 and I'm sick and tired of being hit by lvl 57's etc I can't hit back as my fleet's will just get destroyed I can't upgrade my fleets as all my res keeps getting stolen so whats the point, I'm just wasting my time collecting res for other bigger players. the game sucks.................I'm out of here

    It's fine and nice for lvl 60's. But not me ...as a level 40! It's stupid for a 60, 55, even a 50 to hit a 40. The 40 has NO chance! I am leaving the game if not fixed quick. I have been hit three times in three days..ambushed while not on. Its no fun for me..and I don't like working salvs for anybody!

    This looks like a KIXEYE trick to get lvl 40's to "cha-ching, cha-ching" lots and lots to build themselves up to competitive levels! NO I will cha-ching in raids maybe but not a source of Kixeye wallet busters!

    i still think its very unfair for a level 40 player to have a level 65 be able to attack him. that base has NO chance at all. it should be changed to you can attack up to three levels below you and five above you. then the big boys cant beat up the level 40-45 guys who mostly dont even have du4 yet. much less any raid boats to guard their bases. this new system is very unfair to the mid level players who have to deal with the big players farming them. a level 40 right now could be hit by a level 80
    not fair to them

    I think the current system is fine. The new proposed system seems overly convoluted.

    That said, if a change were to be made, I'd say to simply bump the free-for-all threshold up to lvl 45, old level 30. There are/where only a couple hundred former 36+ players, so the 45s really won't be able to complain, and a 45 is a lot more likely to have nearly everything done base defense wise.

    Agree with this setup.

    Just make it a free for all and be done with it. You're heading that direction anyway.

    I like this structure much better than the current one. It actually makes sense. Kixeye, thanks for listening to all of our feedback.

    LOL all I see here is they gave level 45-49 lower level farms
    Uncapped from level 40
    30-40 can attack 10 above
    40-50 can attack 10 below
    Looks to me
    A 45 - 49 can now farm 35-39
    This made no change to a 65 hitting a 40
    Now we will have the forums full of level 35-39 complaining about being farmed by level 45-49

    Something needs to be done for the Players below 50. A level 48 and below does not stand a chance against a level 54 or better. I like the old rules of +/- 5. there are plenty of higher level bases to hit within range. at least till you hit 60. maybe just +/-5 till you are Level 50 would be more fair.
