It’s a big week for Battle Pirates.  This update brings with it the New Primus Ordinis Campaign to earn brand new tech by using your Siege ships.  Three returning campaigns offer you a chance to earn tokens to continue building or refitting your ships. The June FM is being updated with new monthly prizes, and includes over 100 re-offered items to continue improving the FM as a catch up mechanic.

This is also the update where we bring in several fixes to correct some long standing problems within the game.  We have our correction to several major bugs. Tier 7 Turrets not calculating their bonuses properly, as well as all ship-mounted weapons having higher than intended accuracy. We are also rolling out changes to standardize how countermeasures behave, and removing all items at that are equipped to invalid structures in players bases.

With VXP weekend,  it’s your opportunity to rank your new Proto-Centurion fleets. The Proto-Centurion is the fleet which will allow you to Solo the Sub Sector Resource Base.  This will be your most efficient way to earn base parts.

The cumulative effect of these changes are to wrangle combat back into balance, with a higher impact to PvP.
