June Work in Progress


Certain Forsaken Captains are gaining Reputation for being fearsome combatants in the war against the Draconians. Groups of Forsaken fighters known as Rogue Crews have begun to lend their skills to Captains with enough of this Reputation. Their unique abilities will be an asset as the Forsaken turn their attention to entrenched Draconian forces.



Primary Features:

  • Reputation

    • Reputation will be a new currency that players can earn by attacking Draconian targets. The more Draconian ships and buildings a player destroys, 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 June. We will also be reverting the start day to Wednesday, after receiving feedback from players.

  • June Event

    • Players will face a new enemy in addition to the 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.  

  • Gifting Gold via Premium Gifts

    • Players can now gift Gold to other players. This is a great way for veteran players to help out junior players. 

  • Alliance Revisions

    • Revisions have been made to terminology regarding Alliance Points and Alliance XP. We have uncapped Alliance Points and players can now compete with their fellow captains to dominate the new leaderboard


Game Improvements

  • Drones no longer respawn indefinitely when used as part of a Base Defense Fleet.

  • Resolved one scenario where Base Defense Fleets regain all of their health.

  • Torpedo projectiles no longer travel through land tiles.

    So just because a bunch of whining players is crying about blitz drones, you (Kixeye) goes and removes the ability to respond drones. HELLO morons! Each ship does have a limit to how many drones it can spawn anyway. All an attacker has to do is stay away from the base and let the Mothership (s) keep spawning drones and killing them off. Sooner or later the Mothership (s) will run out of drones. Hey since you guys (Kieye) is listening to people whine and giving them what they want. I want a Refit for the old Dreadnought, but one that doesn't bring it up to match the DNX. Something like decrease to spread or increase splash, but not both. 
    In other words, let the stupid Blitz Drone modules work the way they are suppose to work and don't give way to players whining.

    I have a question as to the gold gifting feature. I can only gift 50 gold at a time currently, does the code itself decide when to give me other options as well? Basically what I'm asking is does the gift amounts you are given is based amount on how much gold you have purchased in the past? 
    You can do anything you set your mind to. Yeah I'm talking to you reading this.

    So..are you for or against the infinite drones?  I'm confused.
    We are working on many things at once. Alliances, Drac bases (really!), Messaging, Fleet Interception. Are all actively being worked on. Just because we release other, smaller, features does not mean we are not progressing with the larger ones.

    The June Event sounds like we will get a new drac enemy, like the forsaken general whats-his-face.  Sounds like another Duck Hunt, with a different graphic for a bad guy.

    • June Event

      • Players will face a new enemy in addition to the 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.

    How will the new enemies work in conjunction with the military fleets? Are they going to replace some fleet levels or be an additional requirement to certain fleets or will the current system be changed back to the old points system and only certain fleet levels spawn for targets?

    More importantly will there be a preview server for this?

    Kix called the fleets in the drac hunts "Draconian Military Fleets" so you should assume that the next event will be like the previous drac hunts.

    I agree with WaterDog. Having it early can tell us a lot about what this month is going to be like. Kixeye also hurry up with the reputation and the Rogue Crews. Been waiting since last month for it. It was originally in the May's work in Progress.

    You guys are missing the clues ..... "Players will face a new enemy in addition to the Draconian Military Fleets." -

       In Kixeye language, this means that they will be replacing one or more target fleets with a raid on the Draconian Base that has been in a bubble for a month. It should definitely add to the all-around strategy of the event. It will be something different, yet not having to hit the Drac Base 50 times to get the top tier prize...... They do this in some of the events that they have in War Commander - where you get attacked and then you counter-attack.

    Looking forward to it!
