    I have noticed there are very few battles going on and with it being a long weekend with no action has to be a big revenue loss for kixeye. Makes you wonder if they really thought it out by removing attack option.

    yeah KIXEYE obviously dont care for FvF they only care bout base hitting but they will realize it was a bad move when their income continues to drop

    no battle= no repairs = no need to buy credits

    Yep...read SWAG's comments very carefully. He plays the game...there are a number of ways to play this game..you can simply mine resources and build your city...you can salvage...the two biggest factors are the base hitters and the fleet vs. fleet players. SWAG obviously plays as a base hitter...he then influenced the game base on his own play and removed something that completely muted the fleet players. A very dangerous move for a beta game.

    Maybe you need to find a new sector, one that people aren't afraid to fight. Taking away the attack button during the battle gives the base hitter a better chance to escape yes... but a base hitter is just that, a base hitter. People were taking advantage of that and forcing base fleets to fight fleet battles which they were not intended for. You can still ninja fleets, it just takes skill now. So instead of crying about it go out there and practice, you know what they say "practice makes perfect"

    Do you guys not realise there is no need for base hitter to bring others fleets as they only hit bases without guard fleets therefore no fvf battles and as i do use strategy in fighting fleets makes me wonder whether you can plus the game is called battle pirates not i only want to hit bases and run away.

    Skill really..??? in my eyes skill is determined on how well you do in a battle not how quick you can click a button. besides it was relatively easy to get away from battle before so why make it easier.

    And you obviously need to understand the complexity of a full battle. The base hitting fleet is only part of the battle. I send a prep fleet and then a timed base hitting fleet behind. At the same time friends will provide cover. From the opposite end...the base being hit will have friends or alliance members come to attempt to hit the prep or base fleet. If there is cover...it is up to the other players to take out the cover. This is a full battle...not one fleet hitting a base 5 spots lower where there is no control by the person being hit.....like screaming "victory" when you shoot your neighbors plastic flamingo in his yard.

    Now this full battle has been reduced back to one fleet and one base....you can't hit a fleet coming out unless the player started the game today...and you know it.

    Y'all need to wake up if you think Kixeye is killing revenue here. Do you realize that a fleet of FFs with DU4 armor can be repaired for $2 USD? Now compare that with the amount of money lost when a paying customer leaves because the game is **** up.

    This is BATTLE Pirates. Not NINJA Pirates. You **** who sit outside bases with subs and destroy the hard work of legitimate players are making everyone who plays the game properly quit. So screw off!

    I dare you to hit a SINGLE base in your ENTIRE BP life. Stop preventing others from doing so.

    I do hit bases and get away 75% of the time so i don't see the need for extra help from kixeye and yes if i see a neighbour being hit did step up to help and if taking out that fleet prevented more base hits job well done. Sounds like all of you loving this new concept have no idea of how to fight fvf and even getting that base fleet still takes skill depending what they have and you have on fleets.

    you base hitters expect to hit all the bases you want without any pressure being put on you??

    in realistic terms its like saying someone robbing a bank should get away without having the police waiting for him

    i rarely use subs but i know what they can do and if your base fleet is that badly armoured that subs can destroy it within the 5 minutes it deserves to be sunk

    this was a very boring weekend... i am strictly a FvF player and now with this new added bit of crap, i think i am done. it would be a 2 month turn around time to convert a fleet into a base fleet, and with all the new protection mech for bases they really are not that fun to hit. not to mention only the top 4 players on the server have the right fleets for base wreaking. when are those new blueprints going to finally be made public?

    Is that really what you think??

    I am a base hitter... Nothing better than seeing my siege mortars rip through turrets like a hot knife through butter.. I regularly send my fvf fleets (and no my fvf fleets are not subs) to clear guard fleets from a base so I can then send in my base hitters...

    A base with half a dozen or more guard fleets tells me that the base is loaded and they have something to defend..

    These changes haven't killed fvf as everyone is claiming.. since this update was done members from my sector have successfully hit multiple base hitters from neighbouring sectors that were raiding us..

    most people i know refresh the page before the base hit is over which results in NO attack report and you can click to move away

    I've been saying that for months... nothing new here. You wanna know why people are leaving? 'Cause they can't play the **** game. If you sail ANYTHING except subs you get your **** handed to you - or you have damage SWs that take longer to repair than the subs you killed. BORING.

    Police don't swim underwater outside banks... enough said.

    Or perhaps not. Maybe you could let me bring TWO fleets in with me to a base attack, one to kill the base and one to protect that one when I come out of the base. I promise, if you kill the fleet killer I'll let you have the base killer and ALL the loot for free. No one walks into a bank to rob it without a goal on how to take care of the police. But in this game base killers don't stand the slightest chance against ninjas. So if you want to be able to ninja, give us some ability to take guards with us.

    Now I know you just misunderstood that, so let me clarify. We need a second fleet to be the same status as our base fleet - unattackable during the hit (so you can't just kill it while we're in the base) and then if you attack us when we come out you hit the guard fleet instead of the base fleet. THAT would be more fair. Then you can do all the ninja **** you want.

    I'm glad you noticed my increase of swearing and verbal violence here. Actually, I've been doing it BECAUSE I was stopped as a mod. I am basically raining down an ungodly nightmare on all you **** for unfairly ganging up on me when I was mod. I cleaned this place up, kept threads together and closed the duplicates. Hell, I even still do that in a way by making major threads and redirecting people to them when they make duplicates. But none of you **** ever appreciated what I did. All you did was complain about my god-given right to have an opinion on the forums. I would have used multiple accounts (one mod, one with an opinion) but that is against the rules. So your biased selves are to blame for what ruined a perfectly good role for me. And I'm going to make the whole of the forums pay =)

    Enjoy my occasional curses and downright rudeness. Because that is just going to be constant for me. You all pointed the finger that I was a badass. Well, guess I may as well make you right. Enjoy.

    Taking away the attack button is the biggest mistake. With it gone it will cause more problems like someone small trying to battle a larger player to hold them there long enough for someone with bigger fleets to sink the whining coiners. Coiner don't make this game go around it is the advertising and the interaction with facebook. Coining is just bonus that give them extra revenue to run raids.

    okay when i said "in realistic terms" that means its an example dude. i have yet to see underwater banks or swimming policeman thats something for the distant future, but about your guard fleet idea that sounds fine to me anything that results in a battle sounds good much better than just running away.

    All you have to do to get away is right click the play button and open game in new window. This primarily works with chrome you lose comms the only thing you need to do is get to a stopping point and let it time out. Count down and when you can see both windows on the map view just click away from the base and when it times out hit move.

    Base Hitters have enough pressure trying to deal with base defenses and now base patrols. The last thing they need is exiting a base after a hit and being jumped by several people who lack the skill to go hit the base in response, and are looking for easy prey. I am glad the attack button has been removed, and i really hope that it doesnt come back.
    If playing Battle Pirates taught me anything, it's:

    You can please some people most of the time, and you can please most people some of the time, but you will never, ever be able to keep those bitchy little whiners who inhabit yours forums from having a cry about every single thing you ever do (or don't do).

    *In my best old man voice* Kids these days have no idea how easy they have it. All these new fangled gadgets and no idea how to use it.

    The attack button isn't removed.....it's delayed. The ninja tactic is is full swing, Every:crying: baby just ain't figured it out yet.
    The time they've spent here bo0whoin could have been better spent learning the new parameters of that which they ore whining about!
    In truth I'd hate to see these people as boxers... What would happen ? Bell rings, opponent comes center ring and steps on their wittle toesy, and they throw the towel :lol:. Let em quit if they can adapt to the new strategics let em go play farmville! Good riddance
