Have anyone else noticed that there is a new game on the kixeye support page called Battle Pirates HQ. According to the information provided on the support page, Battle Pirates HQ is a new mobile game by kixeye which is currently on closed beta testing.

Here is the BP HQ support page with information about the game. Has anyone heard of this game before? https://battlepirateshq.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

Finally, it's also possible for any soul to send support tickets for the game which is slightly interesting. https://battlepirateshq.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    It surprised me as well and I would guess that this may be worth sharing.

    OK, it seems this "game" is much less a brand new project by KIXEYE but more of an extension on Battle Pirates, the desktop game.
    https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/battle-pirates-hq/id1349995023?mt=8
    This Apple iTunes page shows some screenshots, and it appears to basically be a mobile companion of the main game where players can perform basic tasks on the go. I remember this being discussed for War Commander. I wonder if to some extent their using BP as a test ground for this concept.

    The info shared on the bp forums right now is basically as follows, it’s being tested in New Zealand, it only works with FB accounts as of right now, 200 gold is given for downloading the app, and there is no official release date as of yet that has been shared. At least to my knowledge. I could be vastly outdated.

    OK, perhaps I can help clear up some stuff..
    I'm a player of BP, & it's not an FB thing, you actually have to log in via Kixeye (so you should've imported your FB account over to the Kixeye side)
    I got 200 gold after logging in the 1st time, & the app is very basic. Base repairs if you've been hit, fleet repairs & launching of fleets to hit targets on auto is about it.
    You can't alter your fleet composition, you can't start builds of any type etc.

    Basically it allows you to play on the move on auto (the weekly Forsaken Mission or monthly events or whatever else suits you) & that's it.

    That alone is plenty really.

    Initially the release was for New Zealand only (I'm in Wellington, the capital) & it's been expanded to Aussie. Early takers got 200 coin added to their account but now it's 50.
    Some tech savvy pirates from other countries have turned off their location ability on their phone & downloaded it, but meh.

    Fleas for free for all pirates, you're very welcome

    I've only been using this Android app for a day. Decent for an initial release. 
    A few things that I think should be able to be done to improve it.

    1. You already have the fleet health as a percentage, could you add a cargo percentage? I don't like leaving scrap laying around my sector.
    2. Add a target of "My open salvage/open salvage" so you CAN clean up.
    3. Add Alliance Points. By just hitting fleets today, on the app, I've gotten to 650 Alliance Points, but had to sign on a computer to see it. 

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks a lot for the information. So in theory, the only reason why this game got played was because of some free BP gold. Giving out free gold do at least work for advertising which is at least something.
