    any news on what the charity drive will be?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    It will begin later this week and run until the 29th of May.


    thanks for the news :)

    what wil it be?

    some sort of sale of things?

    I believe another pay point when you bring up the purchasing screen.


    so its not that we could get something in the game because we did something for charity?

    mostly you would expect something, so true collectors of stuff would be tempted, and it would bring in more

    Never shall we fear,
    Never shall we lose,
    Victory will be ours

    you pushing this game to an end even heavy coiners cant afford this now .... hope we get an update to the black or white screens  so they turn pink

    May Work in Progress


    As the ongoing war against the Draconian Military continues, certain Forsaken Captains are gaining Reputation for being fearsome combatants. Groups of Forsaken fighters known as Rogue Crews have begun to lend their abilities to Captains with enough of this Reputation.


    Primary Features:

    • Reputation

      • Reputation will be a new type of points that players can earn by attacking Draconian targets. The more Draconian targets a player attacks, the more Reputation they will earn. Reputation can be spent on Rogue Crews to enhance a player’s fleet.

    • Rogue Crews

      • Players will have the ability to earn random Rogue Crews by spending Reputation. Rogue Crews are assigned to a player’s fleet and will enhance all ships for a period of time. There are a variety of crews that enhance stats and add new abilities like Critical Hits and Speed Bursts.

    • Forsaken Missions

      • We will be releasing new Blueprint prizes in Forsaken Missions during the month of May. We will also be moving the start day to Thursday, as to not interrupt players when we release new content and updates.

    • War Report Update

      • The Battlelog will be receiving an update as part of the War Report feature. The new Battlelog will provide more information and in depth statistics.

    • Charity Drive

      • We will be running a charity drive towards the end of May for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA).

    • Gifting Gold via Premium Gifts

      • Some of our veteran players will be able to help up-and-coming players climbing through the ranks by buying and sending them Gold. We will be evaluating this ability and looking for feedback from the community. If the overall sentiment from the community is positive, we will look into expanding the feature to more players.

    • May Event

      • Players will continue to hunt down Draconian Military Fleets. Players will also be able to take their pick of top prizes, then they can redeem prizes at each tier on their second time through.


    Game Improvements

    • Resolved the issue where the War Report Leaderboards would appear upon every refresh.

    • Resolved an issue where players did not receive Blueprints for completing Forsaken Missions Tiers.

    • Reduced Level 5 Launchpad Repair time.

    You guys just aren't getting it are you?  What causes the game to lose excitement is the loss of fun.  

    Is watching a dock repair fun?  No.

    Try starting your week with a war declaration from a larger, coiner alliance.  Try watching a Thresher coin fleet roll through your base like butter.  Pop your bubble and find more than half of their bases are Javelin/Halo/Goli defended.  So much for my FFa base fleet getting in there.  Even my spectres can't get in.

    Yes I coin, a little.  Under $100 since inception.  I felt it was a form of paying for the game. Paying to enjoy a product. Help it improve a little.  But there is no way to compete.  Today my OP, rocketpad, advanced lab (trying to finish cat3), and all 4 WH survive base attack untouched.  But the 5 MCx that died in my channel were able to hit the dock.  This is a win? No?  It doesn't feel like it.

    What is funny is the coiner alliance had another coiner alliance outside my base with Threshers, Tritons, MCx (another), etc. etc. etc.

    Since the war started I've caught 2 DNx on the map and been called a hacker for sinking them under the bases.  A cheater.  The guys leveling me have far superior fleets, far superior bases, far superior allies, and far superior bank accounts.  Challenges are fun.  Pyhrric banzai charges followed by 4 hour dock repairs (at least) are not.

    Good luck figuring out game balance and maintaining challenges for your mega coiners that are obviously getting bored.  My two cents:
    1) No ally points for repeat attacks.  Make them wait 2 weeks. OR give the defender a bonus for familiarity - "It's this guy again, his ships get penalties and my turrets/base fleet get bonuses." (if you did 50% less damage against a base and they did 50% more it would give both sides incentives to play. Even total farms could become lethal)
    2) War bonus/ally points ends when it has become one sided. 
    3) Keep a Warscore so both sides can see the results and brag/compare.
    4) Change the dock repair time from building based to OP/WH/Dock/Shipyard based.  If your OP goes down, that's half your dock repair time (2 hours). Each WH adds another 15 minutes. SY adds an hour.  Dock adds an hour.  Makes more sense.

    Better dont give us the new captains. We dont want more glitches! Only that we need is to reduce the building and researching times! Nothing else!

    After a British Serviceman was killed on home soil - how about a collection for Help for Heroes, the charity for UK service personnel?

    Relocation 

    There are 5 in my group and one can't relocate because it reads no more room. All 4 of us are in different locations. 3 are nearby and 1 is 2 minutes from us. The fifth one can't even relocate. So what I did is ask two more in the sector if he could friend you and use them to relocate too. But same issue. System reports there is no more room. Yet there is enough room. Can some one at kixeye look into this? Was working a few months ago but this issue seems to plague the game too much now!

    Thanks in advance!

    May is over and there are no rogue crews or rep points......

    please discuss.

    If you are suspicious of whether another player is a hacker or not, please send in a ticket. If they turn out to be a hacker, we crush them. If they aren't, then no harm and no foul, everything just continues on.
