March Work in Progress

The chaos of a Forsaken rebellion is well underway. Infighting between alliances are ongoing as groups battle for status and power. With the new technology that Dr. Brennus is bringing to the cause, the Forsaken are striking a critical blow against their Draconian oppressors.

Primary Features:
  • Navigation Relays
    • Navigation Relays were moved to March. Originally slated as a February release, the team wanted to perform some test and Preview Sessions for the feature before its release.
  • New Forsaken Missions Blueprints
    • Players will be seeing more Blueprints make their way into Forsaken Missions. More technology will be at the player’s disposal and we will continue to cycle Blueprints so everyone has a chance to earn the Blueprints they want.
  • March Event
    • The March event will be similar to Drac Hunt and players will continue to  hunt Draconian Military Fleets. The respawn mechanic has been refined and there are new prizes.
  • War Report
    • The War Report will be a combination of the Leaderboard and Battle Log, as well as containing stats previously not shown to players before. It will be a more comprehensive overview of a player in the game.
  • Battle Commands
    • We will be implementing new Battle Commands to make combat more efficient for players.
Game Improvements:
  • Fixed the Halo Missile where salvos were missing their targets and flying off the map.
  • Resolved a problem where two players were able to engage the same target simultaneously.
  • Fixed issue where Turrets were displayed as doing more damage in Playback than they actually did in Live battle.
  • Resolved the issue where players were able to assign two Officers to the same task.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed a player to be attacked while docking.
  • Players are now able to view the Top Alliances Globally.
  • Ships now earn Veterancy Points when Drones are equipped and destroyed.
  • Resolved one of the issues regarding lost Gifts and Mercenary Fleets.
  • Resolved an issue with Missile sound effects not playing correctly.

    As in, the really old issues that have been in the game since I started playing? If so, thanks for finally fixing these.

    More military fleets!? I don't want to sound like I'm whining but those were not very popular last raid, is it really a good idea to have Military fleets again instead of the point or quota system?

    And what about white screens and sos, or the black death seas?  still launching mercs automatically.  and the last raid was far too annoying to participate in again, you want us to spend 3-10 fleets on the top level enemies.....stop letting others take em from us.  your relay system is retarded, and once again you focus fire on the wrong enemies, try doin something for the players instead of the kixeye wallet.

    "Draconian Military Fleets" for the March Raid ? Really kixeye ?  Not enough here said how much it sucked you are doing it again ?

    Oh well, many will skip the March raid I'm sure.

    Don't you EVER listen to what your customers want ?

    Clouds have also been removed from the game.
    Awww. I liked clouds. 

    And to be honest nothing exciting here.
    Don't use Level. Use Tech when describing players. Level means nothing, its all about tech.

    Thank you for the updates, getting rid of the clouds and giving us a heads up.. I do agree that it would be nice to get the heads up a little earlier, but at least it is better then no update at all.

    Fixing the issue of gifts and mercs disappearing.... does that mean we will be able to use our resource crates during the March event, unlike the last one?

    Pretty sure Drac hunt is the most popular event to date. Most my BP friends, myself included, enjoyed it and found it a refreshing change from the boring grind of Hubs/OPs and Typhoons. Was easy aswell, atleast the 3 1/2 first tiers .... 
    Oh well, to each his own ...

    Speaking of, when will the March event take place?

    We know there is going to be a raid every month and it is usually going to differ slightly from the previous one and we also know the you will be changing blueprints within the weekly missions periodically. Do these really need to be added to the work in progress? It just seems like your trying to bulk it out a little. 
    Did it really take you until 9 days into the month of which 7 of them were working days to come up with this? Most of the things on the list have already been implemented, I think this may have been posted in the wrong forum section, it should be in the archive already.

    The game runs off of flash player in a browser and is free... do you expect it to never crash and run flawlessly?

    I'm not sure if they will ever answer the dry dock issue but the Diagonal base design would be cool I hope to hear the answer on that myself

    Bring back the clouds! Makes this game stand out more. Make it rain, snow and even throw into some waves like Google Earth does once in a while.

    Diagonal bases is something that I haven't had the time to complete. This is more so on me than anything else, I will get you guys something by the end of March.

    I will double check on the Resource Crate/Event question.

    • Resolved a problem where two players were able to engage the same target simultaneously.
    • Resolved an issue with Missile sound effects not playing correctly.

    Was able to engage a base fleet as well as someone else about the same time this post was put up and as for sound I personally has never used sound on this game as the sounds are annoying and pointless
