Most (if not all) Facebook games have unique items and/or bonuses that can be bought with Facebook Cedits. Most of these games have their own form of credits that can be bought with FB Credits or real world cash. An example is "Shiny" used in BYM. A game having its own credit system allows the game company to give out credits as part of the game (again, with BYM, you can pick mushrooms for a chance at 3-8 shiny). Anyway, the point of all this is that it looks like BP is finally getting its own credit system.

Most places that offer a chance to upgrade instantly will show a small FB credit image. However, curretly if you try to change a turret, you'll see a small gold coin with a Draconian symbol on it. This "Draconian Gold" may be the new BP unique currency coming out.

Hmm, I don't recall saying all those things, but that is SO what I would have said.

    THe drac coin thing been there for a while now. Dunno if it was overlooked or what. As far as i know most kixeye games use FB credits with exception of BYM.
    Inferno of sector where ever.

    Well, I just now noticed it. I also just saw the post about temporarily being able to see upcoming Drac turrets, so I figured I'd point this out, too.

    How new? I've been playing for a few months and I see it. I just checked with my friend whos only been playing for less than 2 weeks, and he only sees it on turrets, just like me.

    You're wrong on your statement as Kixeye cannot provide new players with something and not give it to the older and current players as the game is in BETA stage and simply does not work that way. Furthermore, if that were the case I'm pretty sure that a majority of the older players would immediately quit the game as Kixeye would be favoring the newer players, hence giving them an "edge" over the older players that had to work for everything and ultimately the game would fail faster than it began. Think about what you post before you post it, because you sound like a complete jackass otherwise.

    that coin with the F on it is the symbol for fb coins. if there was an error in purchasing coins or somehow kixeye had to "regive" you your coins back, it is called gold...

    Yes, the second picture is the normal Facebook Credit, I showed it to compare. However, when changing turrets, you see a different coin. That coin is what this discussion is about.

    I believe they call it gold. When Kixeye refunds someone for a glitch or whatnot.. I believe they give you gold instead of actual facebook credits.

    Hasn't happened to me, but I've seen other threads about it in the past.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that, but why use the image for the refund gold for changing turrets?

    The gold coins is a method which new players can use to quickly advance their upgrade or research. They have about 20 or so and can only use it to research particular weapon or upgrade a building to a certain point or until it runs out.

    It doesn't give them an edge over older players.

    Like I said, when did they start doing this, because my friend just started playing in 2012 and didn't get them.

    Only corporate greed has kept a game currency from being used. There is also "Gold" in game that was given for players spending the cost of a premium title on one ship and not getting it because of a bug.

    if you guys are only seeing it on turrets it's possible we'll need those "coins" to purchase the new drac turret weapons... http://forums.kixeye.com/threads/156628-Draconian-base-weapon-Discussion

    I think you fail to understand the mechanics of endgame level players. I can loot more in 2 hours of salvaging than I need for any upgrade or research,

    What's the matter hal? Too much of a chickenshit to go through my channel that you have to be a **** and snipe me from the outside? Well in less than 24 short hours my friend, I'm coming to 179 then we can see who is really the big shot. There is no room in this game for base hitting pansies like yourself so go play Farmville.

    If you attempt to set your turret to something else, it will use FB coins. By just going into your turrets, it shows the drac coin.

    Anytime you want to come on down and visit me, whomever you are I'll be happy to sink your fleets and send you home with a nice little repair bill. From the looks of things Sector 117 is still in serious trouble if they keep bringing crap like this up. Grow up and play the **** game, oh and btw I just love seeing ff fleets with shockwaves and large orions fall at my base.
