what have you done to this game ??? im going to list a few things i can think of that would make the game fun again but first let me please say ive been played this game for over 8 years ive spent money on the game (not alot but but it must be around 200gbp) when you have spent this kind of money on a game you dont expect it to be changed and you guys have obviously made millions from this game.
you had loyal players daily and i had many friends who have now gone.
i keep making new ships and getting new tech and thinking what is the point if i cant reek havoc with them i like hitting fleets , people like backing people up who have had their fleets hit it is what made the game fun let me go through a few things that would bring the fun back.
 
1. you cant attack other ships unless they are specified that is absolutely terrible its called battle pirates the game is about being a pirate and having a battle please open up so all ships can battle on the map again including subs.
2.the interceptor class is trash either get rid of them or just have an event for them these cannot be the only pvp ships
3.duo attack on the weekly this was really fun and now its gone you left the 40s okay but now they are gone you should of kept them all open for double attacks.
3.you should be allowed to hit the targets on the weekly with whatever ships you want im sure my punishers can do a 105 but im not allowed.
5.you should be allowed to hit a base with whatever ship you want not just the conqueror class.
6.you should bring mining back also you should let us mine uranium titanium and base parts
7.you should also let the fleets that are mining for these to be hit by other players so they can take what they have
8.build times and repair times are still way too long i mean really the times are still crazy you should at least make build and repair tokens more available

    As a fellow 8+ year player, I agree with many of your points. The game has progressed, and that is good, However the progress is in such a way as to fill the pockets of the company. Yep, I said it, And with that said, That is the reason for the current state of affairs.

    Yes, is Battle Pirates. Hitting is Hitting.  Subs Too.

    I walked away from this game before and I think Kixeye has finally taken every bit of pleasure out the the game as humanly possible. First thing I see when i log in is give me money. For what? Unbelievable!

    From what I could infer in the first place, the title is telling us all about the game: Battle pirates. We plunder the resource, we attack each other for those resource and earn the glory for it, smacking their bleeding nose back to the base with repair bill, while also having some common enemy to fight together. Now, what does it has become into? A **** base where could only be hit by conquerors? No non conqueror ships could attack base?

    Dude, the classing in the first place is given so player could have a better understanding in the raid, so they could choose the better option for the raid. Now? having so many restriction so that it makes hard for anybody just trying to catch up. I still remember doing raid with a garrison fleet as its the only fleet I had. At that time, it helps, at least I could claim some prize, helping me to catch up, even if just a little bit. Now? I relied on having the upper to help the raid.

    I've been playing for 7 years, nearly since the beginning of the game, when there's still no FMs, no raids, no classing. Just trying with any available blueprints to get up. Even though I'm going hiatus several times, I still hoping that it could be better, as I'm seeing more and more content clumped into the meta. However, what now?

    This is nearly no longer something you could happily play. True, there's always aspects that I hate. I hate it when the first time I hit lvl.50 and suddenly every conqueror fleet think I'm an easy kill. However, that's also giving me a boost to strengthen my base so that one day I could see someone try to attack it, only to get their **** smacked down halfway. I also hate for how much effort it is to get things in either TLC, foundry(before they're giving the hulls for free), even the FMs. However, there's aspects that I also like, and what they done now is nearly robbing all of it away. This has gone to something really out of the way just to push as much coins into their wallet. This is a truly no joke. It's happening.

    Do you realize it kix? your player has downed into half in one and half year,even in an event!
    In the end, it just down into maths, pure maths. We just don't really know how their math works.

    I quit 2 years aga (this is a low level alt i log into my kid left me). I use this to observe what now is an unrecognizable, unplayable game.

    If it costs $$$ to build defenses that are smashed easily every month, then being hit becomes painful, and vice versa, if your new $$$ fleet gets destroyed easily the fun is also removed. Clash of Clans hasn't gone this route as that game is balanced. Defense has always been unbalanced unfairly, yet very necessary. The game lost its fun somewhere around 2013-2014.

    I started BP 8 years ago and now it's not the same game. What happened to hitting other fleets, I thought thats what this game was about...being pirates. Now if you aren't a high level and coiner you don't have a chance in this game.

    Agreed but good luck with all that. Don't think i'll live long enough to get two fleets for each class built so ya can do good in the monthlys all year.... don't know what to do with some of the new hulls now - two fm fleets will do it and i already got mosta the good stuff - hardly any point...

    Being a 7+ year player who has never walked away . . . I agree, especially with using whatever hull you want to for whatever you want to. Also weapons and specials used to be across the board, not hull specific. Should be  our decision on what boats to use with what weapons we want to use. I too am about to walk away if this new company doesn't change things rapidly. And yes, the build times are ridiculous. "Here is the boat for the next raid . . . good luck getting them built by the next raid" The fun is gone. And the lag is getting worse lol

    this game will keep losing players as long as the ship builds remains long time to build the truth and during raids if you don't spend your games is useless
