    KIXEYE want some feedback from a fairly new player... Here are the area's needing fixed in my views... Upgrading... Multiple days to upgrade and then only allowing 1 upgrade at a time..... PATHETIC!!! How do you expect to keep a playing community when it takes many days to do 1 task, then having to do the same thing all over again and again and again.... Oh wait.. you can "pay" for the instant upgrade... Seriously?!?!?! I understand it's free but if you want to keep a community playing and positive reviews coming in, change the little things to keep people interested.

    Love the play back, and I would like to be able to attack my own base and cause no damage. A simulated attack to test defenses.

    While we're at wishes, I'd like the ships that your code stole at the beginning of this whole, sordid thing. I guess that's not going to happen. Until it does, Alliances don't do me a bit of good because I can't play. Any word on the ships that are still missing??

    Interesting features to look out for.. Can we get Chrome to function correctly. Your friends list should show everyone on your list for BP mine how shows myself on that list. When you send gifts to friends the system will not do anything. When you receive gifts from friends you can't gift them back. That needs to be looked at. Thanks.. These functions also don't work on Windows 7 Safari Browser and you can't even use the COMMS, no PM, you do see the friends list though. Maxthon 3 works but then gets to be lagging and then sluggish. Under Safari it's the same thing. Opera doesn't seem to have these issues in lag. Chrome there is no lag either.

    Awesome. Now my alliance can come out and retake 449 when we get our tags on. Kixeye is great.

    Now that the alliance is in place i see chatting of pushing people not in alliance out of sec to claim sector, in a way i think its a cool idea but kixeye would need to change how people can move. I suggest changing it so u can choose a sector to move to not moving next to a friend this way ur placed in that sec, for me I don't care where i'm in a sec as long as my friends are there. and also change it so you can move in 3 days not one week.

    Is there any chance you increase the maximum players joined in an alliance from 30 to...say...50 or more?

    Thanks for fixing Chrome with Messaging but can you fix the invite a friend at the bottom frame. If go under a different browser it works I see all my BP friends. But not under Chrome it just shows me there and all the friends are gone! Also I had the AL (A-Lab upgrading for some odd reason still staying the same time left all day since yesterday 1d xxh) this hasn't change since you guys did a maintenance update! Like it's stuck in time!

    A few things: There's nothing wrong with repair times. That's the price you pay for high level ships.

    2, I noticed a few people mention a Draconian Shipyard. I can give an idea on how this would work.

    You ccan build it straight away, but you need to unlock the hulls through blueprints first.
    VEGA Conflict - Lv32 - Planets Visited: 414
    Battle Pirates - Lv53 - Visited Sectors: 1, 2, 101, 280, 383, 449
    War Commander - Lv30 - Visited Sectors: 29

    Bold is current sector/planet. Underline is home sector/planet.

    Ashamed to admit that I was in sector 1. What a dump that became.

    Repair times are really a long progress, but I guess if you coin it cuts the time down 3x ways. No want's to wait for repairs.
    But repairs should be base on the ship type your using. The weight of the items you use in the slots does matter and the
    heavier those items objects are the longer the wait time.

    Hull weight does make the time go longer. Best to use drac armor than the standard armors. T-4 and U-4 armors going to take a lot longer to repair.
    No armor is non-sense these ships need all the protection they can muster!

    I-Lab would need to upgraded to at least level 6 or higher for most to use the drac tech better.

    Frankly if you have a lot of RAM more 16GB or more and faster download/upload speeds I can't see way you can' t have the option to run
    to docs to repair more than one fleet at a time would speed up the process. Most fleets that use LEV going to take 30 or 3 hrs to repair those
    for example.

    Is there any way to a) add another column to the Leaderboard - TAG, because most people tend to view the TAG of other alliances rather than the Alliance name, and b) can a notification of some type be added to the comms so that players know when there may be a message in the Alliance portion?

    We REALLY need Kixeye to include tags after alliance names in leaderboard... no new column needed, if that's too much hassle. But right now our sector is being invaded by a group tagged "OBLIV" and we cannot find them anywhere in the alliance system. We are hitting them back and it would be really nice if we could identify them as the enemies they are so we can get the appropriate points for it. Giving us the founder's basename as the only identifier is not enough. WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO FIND ALLIANCES BY THE TAGS THEY CARRY. Please take the caps as emphasis only, not shouting. But it IS that important.

    Thank You.
