    I just want fewer everything
    -Fewer chores. Let DUBs pay out titanium, parts, uranium & res.
    -Fewer limited items It just adds so much more seat time to raids. Some people have a life.
    -Fewer time limited TLC's (Make them permanent so ppl can do m as they grow in power, but perhaps have a token TLC once a month)
    -Bring back Co-Op raids and a retreat bar in raids.
    -Do proper release control so stuff doesn't get nerfed (or feels as if it is) all the time. Perspective is everything.
    -Change man-o-war from skirmisher to Siege hull so we can put some useful stuff on it (Yes I know its old, but still, fun to have, though why have a ballistics hull in skirmisher mode)
    -Lower repair times. (Maybe allow both conqueror & regular shipyard to repair same time much like during bounty)
    -Alternate months with raid/bounty so we don't cram 2 raids into a month.
    -Make have some PVE target for Mega's to hit providing res or whatever. I mean they are truly pointless unless doing bounty.

    All this lowering will increase play time to play game and hopefully more gaming offsets the drop of profits from PvE into increase of PvP profits.

    too few questions got answered in the so-called Q&A 
    ever had  a problem where you log on and someone is hitting your base, and wanted to view the world map while it happens? try this.
    1/select leadersboard.
    2/select player's medals.
    3/select any player there.
    4/select "find base"
    that may or may not take you to world map.

    I agree.

    Wasn't much of a Q&A session.

    More of a meet n greet with a few questions answered.

    Realistically, it'd take days to answer all our questions, so it went as I expected it would.

    Since nobody has asked these questions yet, i thought I would chip in.


    * When will we receive new crews?

    At least half of the current crews are useless with some specialised to certain outdated hulls (e.g Seawolves). It would be a lot better if they were specialised to class (Assault, Garrison...) or faction (e.g Dragon Slayers and Draconian). This would be a very quick fix for some of the less useful crews.

    However, they are getting very stale and need a revamp.


    * Can we have half repair during Bounty like we do in raids?

    A few Bounties ago, we were lucky enough to receive a global half repair for 48hours I think it was. This instantly made the game a lot more fun. Not just because I could repair my fleets quicker, but because more people were hitting my base. They were able to coin their fleets for cheaper, giving them an incentive to actually go out and enjoy the core aspect of Battle Pirates.


    * Will we ever see the reactivation of the 'International Sector Chat'?

    I believe this could be a very interesting feature that's already in the game but has been wasted.


    * When can we expect more R&D objectives?

    They have been maxed out for a long time, like the ISC above, this is a feature that's been wasted.


    * Are there plans to bring back the arena or the foundry?

    Both of which could be very cool and useful in their own ways but again, they are features that has been wasted. I completely understand if they are being held back to increase game performance or lower the workload of your team. But they do need to be looked at going forwards.

    I would just like to take this time to congratulate you for the great targets in both the raid and the new ones in the FM. Both are interesting and give out decent amounts of damage. Thank you!

    I guess they haven't been asked because:-

    1. most of us don't want new crews, we would rather have targets not tuned to top new crews

    2.cant disagree with this

    1. We already have dead alliance chat for most, dead sector chat for most, opening another chat? hmm I am not so sure

    2. I don't think many would want more R&D to do? I certainly wouldn't ...I seem to think we have WAY TOO MANY CHORES already

    %. Look at top of leaderboard for arena then look at their banned bases....this is why I am so anti BOUNTY

    I would love to see crews disappear. Game should be based on skilled driving and good ship/base design, not a very low random chance of getting an op crew.

    Meep!

    Is special parameter Anti-Missile Accuracy +35% (Countermeasure loaders IV or Frontline Countermeasure System or Countermeasure Equipment III) influence on Sprint CM accuracy against missiles?

    Why Phalanx Anti-Missile IV (accuracy: 65) is more accurate then 3 × Sprints Countermeasure (accuracy: 70) against 3 missiles from turrets in previous assault raid?

    And CM tagging works for all fleet, or only for ship with fired CM?

    Missile Defense System III (accuracy: 70) works same bad against missiles as Sprint CM?

    Rampage why don't you spend 10 minutes of your valuable time bullet pointing what was said. These Facebook shows are painful to watch.

    Rat you started around the same time as me, I also started an alt account a while back, so can look at the issues from both sides.

    In my opinion, although it wasn't easy for us back in the day, it was possible to slowly climb the slippery **** towards being competitive. I remember sending Sea Wolves into a raid target repeatedly, each time just managing to cause some damage, until the target was dead, it was a slow process but eventually got the points needed.
    Now days if you do not have one of three fleets (Mantis, Skys, Pheons) then this raid is a total bust, imagine what the equivalent hull to a Sea Wolf would do in a raid target now, it would be dead as soon as it engaged the target =  zero points + large repair.

    I like you have never had help for any target, and I do not like targets that have been over powered because the assumption seems to be, that there will be two high calibre fleets sent in to kill it.
    But I also except that there are some well meaning Captains out there, that just need a leg up, so they can at least get on the bottom wrung of the very steep ladder.
    We all have the career beggars that are in most sectors, asking for help every raid, but in amongst those are the genuine ones that just want that little step up.    
    What me cynical, no, never, maybe!!, well I have been playing kix games for over 3 years.
    Remember its just a game, your life doesn't rely on you being the best.
    Sectors visited :- Who cares, been to some killed some stuff moved on.
    Hulls :- Yep got some and some have guns and stuff

    I have to say that I am cynical by nature, and that is increased where BP is concerned by all of the half truths and outright lies we have been told over the years that I have played BP.

    That said, having watched the feed, and being able to look into their eyes and read some of the body language, I feel that just maybe this new team leader just may be able to reinstate the game to what it once was and improve it.

    Only time will tell how it goes, things will not change overnight, but enough was said to re -enthuse me for a while.

    In no particular order, some of the thing I think would help people:

    1.  Is there a possibility that you can increase the res levels across the board in map targets, there has been a steady decline in these over the last year or so - making res an even bigger chore than it needs to be.

    2.  Would you please not increase the damage levels in raids beyond the start, this leaves a bad taste when it an obvious ploy to make us take more damage and spend more coin - it has the opposite effect.

    3.  Can you think about low-mid level players and what they can achieve when you allocate prizes and associated costs to a raid.

    4.  Can you make some of the tlc's co-op, so higher level players can help ppl to grow and not become disillusioned.

    5.  Can we have a revamp of the campaigns, these are all out of date now and of no use to anyone

    6.  Can you have a rethink about the FM change timescales, once again, you are bringing in change just as a lot of people are getting their dragons flts ready to do the 112 & 117 targets.  To just get to the point where ppl can do the FM and then have the target change making their flts useless seems to be a repeating issue that adds to ppl's disillusionment.

    7.  Can you bring the DUBs back - this was a major means of getting UR and impossible for most people to be ready in time, this is affecting a lot of people.

    8.  Can you have a re-look at awarded Titanium levels in targets, awards are too low for the work required by most to get it.
    Bam ! Number 2 is dead on ! Stop that shyt.

    There are a lot of good suggestions here, however, as the targets ARE changing ( despite begging) and what I could easily do a day ago I won't be able to do at all after today...at least not with an investment of months of time building new fleets.  I expect to be playing less and turning my interest to other games. Thank you Kix for a sometime enjoyable but mostly frustrating experience.

    Since the new BP motto is "PLAYERS FIRST"

    How about lifting the $50.00 requirement for support ?

    Shouldn't ALL players get support equally ?

    Do non-coiners not supply content to the game ?

    Since Will Harbin just stated in "his" letter,  "If the only answer to why we’re putting something in the game is money - I don’t want it in the game".

    Or was the letter just a load of BS ?


    # PLAYERS FIRST
    What is it with you people? These guys actually have what some people call BILLS TO PAY. Can you not wrap your head around that man? Explain to all of us-if no one paid for anything-how would the game even be here? Why should someone that freeloads the game be given anything like customer service? THINK-somehow those people have to be paid REAL money to work at their jobs. So let me ask YOU-would you continue to work at your job if you were paid nothing? How does this type of logic escape so **** many people. It's incredible.

    Mate, that is why coiners are there for, to keep the business afloat.

    We non coiners are there for you to hit and make you feel good, so that you keep coining, that is, if you are good enough.

    There are also a lot of ways to generate coin directly and indirectly from non coiners.

    Can you wrap your head around that? :)
