    this is why we can't have nice things, amiriteowhat?
    I can feel you judging me. That's palpable. But, hey, I never said I was the hero of this story.

    Yea no, the game wasn't particularly fun back then. It's way more fun now, there's just more stuff to learn about it. If you don't want to put the effort into learning how to play the game then of course you're not going to have any fun.

    I wouldn't say the game was more fun back in the early days, but definitely more active.  I miss the large cross border raids we had back in my home sector.  Send 50-75 fleets across the border and flatten every base and fleet on the map.  There would be 20-30 bases being hit and 20-30 fleet battles going on at the same time.  Good luck finding that many active players in a sector these days.

    BP is now more of a chore than fun imo.  My day job requires less effort than BP, lol.  Gave up base hitting a couple of years ago as I have limited daily play time and had to eliminate some aspects of the game.  Now my focus is on the TLC's, FM and Raid play.  The rest of the game play can piss off.
    ===================================================
    Badges??  I don't need your stinking Badges.

    Also applies to Skins, medals and any other items in BP that serve absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

    I am not for a minute saying BP is fantastic now, but I think we remember the "good ol days" through rose tinted glasses.

    The game was simpler in its mechanics, but it was also a much slower game, with base buildings taking forever to build, hulls taking relatively long times to build etc etc.

    I also remember the inter sector wars, but they tended from my memory of them, to last a couple of days, then months would pass until the next. I also remember trolling around the sea's hitting salv after salv to collect resources, sometimes several hours a day.

    So for me BP is a better game now than then, there is a much greater choice of how we play the game, some prefer PvP, others PvE, that option wasn't available back in the day.

     I just wish kix would announce a plan and stick to it.
     
    Never lose sight that this is a game, its not life and death!!!

    Kixeye is running this game like a bunch of Liberals running the country.. by the seat of their ****. I check back after a few months and still same ole same ole... I'm so glad I found real games out there to play, and to give my money to. They appreciate it, and their game shows it. Ok, Troll away now.

    the lower lvl's dont mean nothing like always and if you dont coin like always you get run over and trying to get run out of the game it has come to the point now just get on and look at how many day days it it till the build is done and leave because cant get U any more it is insane to try and get it could get it through the FM's but now the strong holds are being taken away so that has went out the window also so push the lower lvl's and non coiners out of the game thanks kix.

    Since when did this game become kix against whales?  Now the best in the game are being
    slapped around by any coiner that can get the way out of line MudGlut.  The players that don't spend 
    all day on the game but like to play when they can are being shut down.  Whole alliances are
    talking drop tag and move on to something else.  Is this really what Kix wants?  Seems like it to me and
    many others.  Now, the average gamer can't do the weekly w/o major coin spent, can't defend base, can't do
    the major raids.  WTH is going on Kix?  At least w the 102's in there a player could grind out a weekly x2
     in 2 to 3 days of occasional play.  With MudGlut there is no reason for base guard (Again, this comment is
    about the average player).  But hey, the Whales are right in there w all the right toys bangin away and tryin
    to match up w Kix's twisted mindset of constant change to reap more coin from the whale player/hackpackers and
    major coiners.  This is not the game it was and the break up has begun.  Congrats Kix, players w years of
    gaming together are givin up the game, alliances are cracking and brand new players see no way in hell of ever
    surviving past lvl 50.  Suggestion:  lvl 100 plus can only attack lvl 100 plus unless attacked by a lower lvl.  
    Biggest suggestion is quit trying to out think the game.  Five years + playing and ready to quit if kix does not
    make the game possible for all again.

    Since when did this game become kix against whales? Since when did this game become for the Whiners?
    Now the best in the game are being slapped around by any coiner that can get the way out of line MudGlut.  I know PLENTY (myself included) that have not coined a mudglut fleet.  If the "best in the game" cannot counter mudgluts then obviously they wernt the best. 
    The players that don't spend all day on the game but like to play when they can are being shut down.  How so?  Whole alliances are
    talking drop tag and move on to something else.  Is this really what Kix wants?  Seems like it to me and
    many others.  Now, the average gamer can't do the weekly w/o major coin spent, if they are coining the FM then they are doing something very b=very wrong. can't defend base, A base cannot be designed to keep every fleet out completely.  And if they are a smaller level, they will struggle anyway. can't do the major raids.  WTH is going on Kix? Kix are advancing the game - its a natural prgression to stop the game going stale and engaging the player base with new targets  At least w the 102's in there a player could grind out a weekly x2 in 2 to 3 days of occasional play. So hit a target that your current fleets can handle and build a fleet that can handle the bigger targets.  Dont expect to do the big targets without putting in the work. With MudGlut there is no reason for base guard (Again, this comment is
    about the average player).  But hey, the Whales are right in there w all the right toys bangin away and tryin
    to match up w Kix's twisted mindset of constant change to reap more coin from the whale player/hackpackers and
    major coiners. This is just a plain whine and doesnt deserve a response.  This is not the game it was and the break up has begun.  Congrats Kix, players w years of gaming together are givin up the game, alliances are cracking and brand new players see no way in hell of ever
    surviving past lvl 50.  Suggestion:  lvl 100 plus can only attack lvl 100 plus unless attacked by a lower lvl.  
    Biggest suggestion is quit trying to out think the game.  Five years + playing and ready to quit if kix does not
    make the game possible for all again. With 5 years + experience (claimed) playing this game, you would obviously know this is the cycle and have been through it before.  You would then obviously know that the swing will come back full circle and all will be right with the world again.



    Those that can - do.  Those that can't - scream hacker, coiner and anything else that takes their fancy.

    Back to the same old crying about high level players hitting little guys and coiners having to much...Well what are low levels for if not a spot to get fast easy salvage ? And mudGlutts fail just like all other fleets if You put the time in and fix Your base seen lots fail so they can be stopped .

    theres a def hull in the next raid to combat gluts but the h alpha does just as good

    Raids are meant for higher level players with more capabilities. Low level and ill-prepared players can do the FM and now, the Foundry, to get tech up to date to become more competitive in raids.

    Man, what lower-level player was hitting 109s and 102s?  If you can do that you don't really qualify as a lower-level player.

    First of all I'm a level 75 I play to have fun and past the time away. With kixeye changing game by removing the strongholds they just took away the game from me. i have been doing 87 to get to tier 4 each week. i don't have the good ships I just use Punisher and Nova I'm where i can get ship build tokens now  that will help me.i just started FM and found all the 87 are gone and just a few 80. i tried to do a few 67 but the points are low. Kixeye you are playing dirty trick on us it's not right. I can't do raids get uranium or base parts anymore. I think the Future of the game is short. when i hit base's one of of ten is good and and a lot of players have drop tag. this game is no fun anymore.

    Repair times are too long and ship build times are too long so this path in the fm has caused two more players that i know to quit playing...Wondering how many more dead bases are going to be there now...congrats....

    I know right?  Don't you love the fan boys who are always whining about the average players who are fed up with all the crap Kix constantly dishes out?  I don't mind giving credit when credit is due but this game continues to dish out a **** sandwich and there are the mega-coiners are all too willing to dine.

    Really??? show me where it says that as a lvl91 I will only be spawning 103. I have gone from being able to do t5 twice a week to barely being able to do t4. This game has gone to crap. Its like I have to start from scratch again after years of playing, except of course now I can't do the weekly's I will stop playing. Seems kix doesn't like my $$$... was fun, but its turned to custard...

    Why? For the good players the game is easier than it's ever been to play for free, and quite a bit more fun as well.

    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...
