  • [Build Times] Build time reductions are being implemented for several Skirmish-focused Armors and Specials. A separate briefing has been released detailing each of these reductions.

  • [Third Party] TrialPay is being disabled. This third-party ad system in Facebook allowed players to take surveys in exchange for a small amount of coins. It is largely unused at this point, and adds unnecessary load to our tech stack. As part of our ongoing efforts to increase stability and performance, we have elected to remove this feature.



  • [Ships] Hyper-30 Installation is not applying Splash damage reduction to ships.

  • [Forsaken Mission] Post-combat modal is not displayed on World Map after defeating certain targets.

  • [Fleet Management] Free Instant Repair from the map of a fleet that is docked is charging 1 gold.

  • [Fleet Management] Crew icon missing in fleet manager tooltip.

  • [Other] General bug fixes and performance improvements.
