    This is a neat idea- allows others to learn techniques etc especially lower levels

    lysan i agree with you i dont like the alert feature. with them adding a patrol fleet it would be impossible to hit bases, causee you would need 3 fleets to do it. and you cant do that if all of a players neighbors get an alert that you are there. i love the spectating part of this, but they need to take the alert feature out

I DO NOT PUT TIME AND EFFORT INTO PLAYING THIS GAME TO ALLOW 2 HR PLAYERS (THAT I DID NOT APPROVE OF) TO JUMP IN AND SEE HOW THINGS ARE DONE. THIS IS SERIOUS BULLSHIT.

    I think this is a great feature that will help with training new players. I do think you should be able to decide who is allowed to see the fight. But still a good idea.

    you really are as stupid as you sound. if you read my post you would know exactly what i meant. obviously you haven't put in alot of time and effort into learning how to play this game. if you did you might be a bit more understanding as to why it pisses me off. you're kind of people is what kills games like this.

    i have better things to do while in a fight htan to be pressing accept/deny. at most allow friends only to view. other that that this feature should not be implemented.

    ps: the alert feature is also just dumb. all its gonna do is spam the comms. unneeded bandwidth on a useless feature. players need to play the game and PAY ATTENTION to whats going on. there are so many other features you could add to the game that actually makes t better to play....yet you do not add them. instead you leave things broken and unbalanced, yet want to add more crap features to the game. way to go kix.

    I think this post pretty much sums up my opinion of this update.

    The base layout and tech you have in your base your flt designs and tactics are the things that matter not your lvl.

    Hmmm sounds like your a bit scared someone will watch you sink and laugh.

    Hmmm sounds like you can't come up with a good counter argument and have resorted to a petty and extremely weak attempt at a personal attack.

    Stay on topic guys and no flaming.

    I personally am pretty neutral on the idea. It will be nice to see some battles..but honestly if I want to watch battles I can always go to YouTube and type in battle pirates..

    My opinion:
    -If it adds lag, don't implement it. It is not worth it
    -If it does not add lag, go ahead and implement it. It is might be entertaining when you don't feel like BP hunting/other tedious activities while waiting for week+ upgrades to finish.

    There is currently no way for a 3rd party to view a battle in progress.

    We will be implementing a feature that allows any player to view a “Fleet VS Fleet” or “Fleet VS Base” battle. Any player can use the mouse to click on a battle and view the battle as a spectator only (cannot participate in battle). Spectators will not be able to view submerged submarines.

    There will also a feature that announces when battles are taking place near your base in the Comm (chat window). This feature can be easily disabled if you do not want to receive battle notifications.

    As Battle Pirates is a Massively Multiplayer Online game, we feel this will greatly enhance the effect of being an open-world game. The game has a strong emphasis on competition, so it only makes sense to grant anyone the ability to view players competing with each other.

    Hell YES!!! I love this ****. It lets you know who's ****. All the liars will be exposed. 2 thumbs up to kix on this awesomeness. :)

    Yes! Finally! I think this is a great idea! However...

    I agree with Munchy. It should only be implemented IF it causes NO noticeable degradation in game performance.

    Also, in my opinion it's reasonable that some people (for whatever reason) may not want their battles visible. I think the one who initiates the attack should have control of whether spectators are allowed or not. The one being attacked should have not such rights. The problem with this added option though is that implementing it can get complicated.

    great, i am a bit reserved on the battles near your base being announced since this will increase the amount of heat you have when trying to get home
