This has always been a fun game to play and have met dome great people here. Many of whom have met IRL. BUT the changes made in the last year are forcing many people to stop playing. The entire system is now geared towards the high level players that coin. Beginners have no chance whatsoever unless they coin, intermediate players have to coin in order to just maintain what they have ot they can not progress. Removing reaver armadas has eliminated many players from the ability to obtain Uranium, and now replacing scourge parts bases with legion colonies makes it near impossible. Eliminating the DUBS has further reduced the numbers of players. The entire trend seems to show that Kixeye does not care one bit about the players but rather the greed and coin grabs had forces thousands of players to simply quit the game.
