    The intro screen states that it is recommended to use Garrison or Conqueror hulls. When I engage the target with a Conqueror class hull the screen states that I am attacking with a disallowed hull.

    Conquerors are for 5 and 7 only. As it says on the engage screen, the briefing, etc...

    yeah don't believe your lying eyes. Everything is presented as intended, you are just to dumb to realize it. PS_ No personal offense to the OP, I was being sarcastic and I've noticed many people suffer from sarcasm detection deficiency syndrome so I figured I would add the disclaimer.

    Target's 1 through 4 and number 6 used garrison.

    Targets 5 and 7 use conq. Takes less than 5 minutes to read the release notes and see that.

    Life is too short not to have fun playing games. Best of luck to all.

    This is correct.

    And there is even a message that says that in the pre-combat screen.


    The recommendation is for the campaign, not each individual target. And since most of the targets restrict the Conqueror hulls, you should use a Garrison fleet for those.

    Huh. It is almost like they thought of that....

    It doesn't state either/or, it just states that both can be used, which is true. Some are garrison, some are conq.

    Granted it could be clearer on the pop up screen, but you only need to try and be denied to work out what works where.

    It's a lot like the 80's, where microwave companies had to add a disclaimer to their products, stating that it was not to be used to dry damp pets, because some daft old crone tried to dry her poodle in one...BOOM! Don't be the daft old crone in this situation and work stuff out for yourself.

    So I tried the new campaign, wasn't really sure what to expect.

    To my surprise there was a fleet of ships in a garrison target that move around. I quickly realised they were helping me, great always nice to have allies in our fight against the enemy. But sadly these allies are morons and are attacking a garrison target with assault class ships. Within a few seconds they are dead, rip comrades. You should have read the state of the game threads where the change to ship categories was clearly laid out.

    Other than good campaign  I enjoyed it.

    Really? We're really going to complain about having to read something - with a tone that appears to equate it to having to pick up dog ****?
    reading is not just for a "job."
    it is part of our daily life
    it is part of how we "learn."

    there is no fine print here
    there is a weekly release which provides information on what is going to happen, how it is going to work, and what you're going to get by doing it
    for this game, this is the "important ****"
    it comes out once a week  
    it takes all of five minutes to read
    six if you have to move your lips....

    this is a combat strategy game....
    the good ones tend to be a bit complex
    if you want something simpler....maybe try "Clash of Clans" on your mobile phone.
    I would still recommend reading the instructions first.

    tried twice & failed twice - guess I don't have the right "fleets" to do it - yet again, Kix dangles a carrot to make players coin more, so that only those who've spent a small fortune on the game can get the good prizes

    You mean you didn't get the memo?

    Battle Pirates is not a game - it's a lifestyle choice!
    In a game like BP the hardest targets should be other players, not the AI targets!
