I am curious about what Kixeye has planned for the future of this game. Something will need to be introduced fairly soon that is designed to keep high level players from getting bored. The basic premise of the game is to attack things to acquire resources. Spend those resources on upgrades/ships before someone else comes along and tries to take them from you. But that happens when you have nothing left to spend them on? Or no new blue prints to gather?

Think about it, once a player is in the 32-34 range they likely have researched everything that they feel they need. They also likely have all of the blue prints that they desire. Build times on the latest and greatest fleets can climb into the months range if they do not want to coin them. These fleets become necessary in order to break into high level bases and at level 34 the only bases you can hit should be very well defended.

The only thing really left to do is break bases. But how long does the novelty of that last? Granted if you have a comms-crybaby in your sector the novelty is greatly extended. Eventually doing the same thing over and over for a prize that you no longer have much use for will become mundane. Games the remain overly repetitious eventually die and fade away.

Kixeye, you have created a great game that i have enjoyed for months. Would you please be kind enough to throw us a bone and give us a few hints about things to come. Wet our appetites as we sail through the doldrums.

Frankly i don't even care if the things you say actually come to pass. You can even tell me lies and it would make me feel better. Just give me something to look forward to.

Please.

    The future is to draw in new players/spenders as the older players get tired of it and quit. Pretty simple business actually.

    Well, i'm already starting to get bored....with salvages making an easy "repair free" life. There is really no need for me to hit bases for resources.

    Just want to make sure that you saw this update first: http://forums.kixeye.com/threads/141764-Battle-Pirates-Update-9th-December

    We just had a meeting this morning of what is coming up this month, and there are some cool things planned. I know you guys have been waiting to attack the Draconian Bases, and I don't think we're going to have to wait that much longer. Remember that the game is still technically in beta, which means we won't announce that the game is out of beta until we are satisfied that there are enough features in the game to keep everyone busy.

    Awesome...good to know. For the most part, I still stick to what I said, as it is just good business, but it's always good to hear that it will be tougher to get bored of gameplay....lol.

    It's still fun to crush someones base who deserves it. Then as an added bonus it's fun to also stalk their fleets. :p

    So, I see that square base, roll up and flatten it. Suddenly there's sector police everywhere, the noob is crying on coms and everyone's looking at me like I'm the bad guy? Shoulda built a better base.

    I'm also not allowed back in that neighborhood.

    Thanks for the reply Swag.

    If i may, i did see in the wishlist section that someone posted an absolutely genius idea for a new ship. I believe it was a Sailboat. Honestly, the creator of this is utterly brilliant. I think the addition of something like this would add a new and unexpected element to the game.

    How about when the game comes out of beta, they refund everybody all the coins they've spent, and reset everybody to the start? :P Yes, I know people are about to burst blood vessels in their skulls, and scream about me being mentally challenged, or even worse.

    They would be right.. Having reached Lvl31, there is NO way I'd want to go through that process again.

    actually a better idea is two have all the ships that were in revenge raids and put them in a level 10 naval lab but you have to have researched everything

    The only thing i don't like is the blue print rate its too low for me, and as a kid you get board fast and you got school stuff to worry about. That is the only thing wrong with the game if you made the blue print rate better. i am level 31 WITH no siege cannons not even any drac mortars NONE, i am really pissed at that i am algebra so i can't be on for hours looking for blue prints, i can't pay until i can get paid from selling books.
    just about ever sector i go to this punk says i will be farmed because i flattened his or her base. but i was never farmed. Then some people say i buy because i got 5 levi which slaughter theirs. its just funny that they think that. like medusa in sector 1 i flattened his base. Then he was telling me i will be farmed. so headcase cooky came by with a scout he hasn't came back. he even said that if i hit another sector 1 i will be farmed. and guess what its the next day and i am still standing.
