    They might still be running some. They're often not mentioned in the update notes anymore. I hope they are, anyway.

    A "low key" week would be perfect to continue to re-run select campaigns - especially campaigns that can help people shore up their "chore" fleets. 
    How many complaints does it take ?
    My dad used to say; Ask a girl if she will sleep with you for 1 million dollars. If she says yes, ask if she will sleep with your for $1. She will most likely be insulted, but you've established that this girl has a price and now its just a matter of negotiating.  
    We've established that nothing Kix says or does is set in stone, there is no trust and no respect - now its just a matter of negotiating.

    Changing the FM every 4 months, rather than once a year..hmmmm. Still better than having to build/refit 3 times in the last month. If managed with some finesse it could work out ok, as long as it's not the Bang!!! there's your "re-balanced( completely new nothing like the old FM  at all) introduction we all just witnessed in October. 4 month raid cycle... well really, should never have been anything other than this and should give us all a chance to slow things back down to a sprint.

    I hope 2018 returns to some of the fairly decent gameplay of 2016, but I have this nagging doubt that it may possibly have more to do with the dwindling numbers of employees in 2018, and their ability to keep on top of the insane amount of added content of 2017. I shall look forward to the prospects of a New Year, and keep my apprehension firmly in check, till proven warranted.

    that was the idea of the new format smh you pick your own thoughout the 3 or 4 weeks out of what they add after a raid.

    A list of said changes would be great, instead of the vague explanation that you lowered some build times.

    You guys really need to work on the quality of your information delivery. It is at an all time low IMO, and seems to only get worse with each update.


       Hey pirates:

          We changed some crap. Its up to you to figure out what it is.


       GOOD LUCK CAPTAINS !

    Boo hoo hoo...  The LAST line in the State of the Game message was.... "Look for a video and write-up on the forums explaining Expeditions and the strategies behind automated resource gathering."  A little reading and comprehension goes a LONG way...  Got any more silly complaints?
