    Look, All of the horrible changes to the salvage ships aside. This is what I want to know. Because you have changed the Salvage ships, have the blue prints changed as well. Are the drops rates higher because of the increased difficulty of the Draconian fleets? Or are people going to have to face 1, 2, or 3 hour repair times per every like 3 or 4 salvage, and still have to attack more than 20 or 30 fleets before your "streak breaker" kicks in and finally coughs up 1 single blue print?

    I managed to get lucky during the raid and get like 5 or 6 blue prints, But I was constantly attacking typhoons with 4 to 5 fleets, and constantly having to refresh or restart my browser because either shock wave crashed, or the game would go to a "Blue" screen and not do anything. But my question still stands. Have the drop rates changed, or are they still just as dismal as they were before the update? Any kind of feed back for this question would be nice, however I do not expect a quick response do to the fact that you are still probably sorting though all of the **** and moaning about the Update.

    One more thing, have you added new blue prints, or are the salvage just harder, give less resources, and have a terrible drop rate of blueprints?

    Pages and pages of complaints, what statement do you have for us kixeye? why are you not answering any of the threads? i would reccomend you repay everyone all the money they have put into this game before you face court action, you cannot do things like this and not even have a statement to defend your actions, you did not involve the players as to what your intentions were, why not? we are the ones who play the game, we do have a say, as the game will be closing down soon due to lack of players i would like all my money refunded back into my bank account ASAP

    Very good point, I feel they may be liable for not delivering the promised goods and changing the contract without consultation. Did they not say after the last idiotic change that they respected their clients and would consult them in the future..... What a bunch of sharks kixeye are!

    Your update and changes is only for KIXEYE to make even more money. I coin allot for repairs and speed ups. Now my fleet can not even take a salvage without getting heavy damage. Your game is no longer worth playing. I only can spend so much and now you have gone overboard with that too. I for one will be leaving your game if the changes stay. KIXEYE your greed is just driving players away. My wife thanks you.

    Kixeye, how can you get anymore greedy? what you charge for this game is already outragous, now you burden us even more with your new salvage changes. I hate to say this, but this game is on its way down. Fix the salv problem, and lower your crazy prices, or else this game is finished.....

    Well this has ruined the game, I can't attack cargos or other players, res is too low and now becuase of that upgrading will take months at my level. This is supposed to be pirate game, well not anymore. Sorry Kixeye you seem to have lost the idea, I have lost interest. Unless changes are made I won't be playing.
    loads of sectors..

    My first feedback. See the new level changes - look ok. I still don't understand the why behind it, but it works. I do object to the change where you lose your bubble in a FvF attack. In other words, if you are bubbled, you can't do anything but twiddle your thumbs, or lose the bubble. Why bubble at all? Second, the changes made to the salvage fleets are a game-killer to me. There is absolutely no way to get ahead. I attacked a lvl 45 salvage, lost 80% of a SW fleet and after bringing in the resources and starting repairs, I lost resources in my warehouses. How does a player collect resources to get ahead in the game? I request that salvages be returned to the pre-enhancement configuration. If not, I will seriously consider abandoning the game.

    The most unfunny joke ever. Get a grip Kixeye. Really? You think these updates are better? Wrong! I get no enjoyment out of this game now. Sorry, unless the changes are reverted i will be joining numerous others and abandoning this game.

    Don't seem to be able to respond anymore in General Discussion, so I'll say the new update has ruined the game for many.

    Many will say 'adapt' - fine. You need both res and time to do that - the new level structure means anyone 29 and over can be hit by anyone higher, so res will take longer to build.....................and if salv's aren't even giving you the res you need to repair then they're pointless.

    And hitting lower level salvs to get res is fine - but that also disadvantages the lower levels who need them.

    This is a lose-lose situation for many players, unless they're able to massively coin.
    No chance of getting anywhere now. Most friends have left the game thanks to changes, and given the crazy chores now I'll doubtless join them.

    Kixeye please leave as drac boats were now very difficult to capture resources receive the same damage at the same time to complete and use those same to continue to repair damage caused by drac boats. I do not see the logic to continue so. please stop the boats as they were before.

    They should have implemented the bubble issue and the salvage / level as two different updates, to allow people to adjust.

    This configuration now just sucks - plain and simple.

    Ok some of the changes you have instigated have been great (not many) Most have sucked big time. I can understand that you want to cater to the coiners as they pay for the game (Im one of them). HOWEVER , the glitches really do need to be sorted out. They are your fault not our PCs as every other game I play including your War COmmander , doesnt glitch or crash.

    As to the new levels ! The structure is fine , however the idea that a lvl 70 (placed 14th on the all time leaderboard) can hit a lvl 44 (63334th on the leaderboard) is just downright **** stupid !

    Im am/was a level 34 (now 55 almost 56) so can speak with some authority on this. I do like the idea that I can hit more bases , however I didnt have any trouble finding a base to hit any way !

    It has made it alot easier for us higher levels but not the lower levels, and in time we will see more quit and not make it up to the higher levels.

    This is not all about making money or is it? (of course it is , you are in business after all). But you do need to supply a product that is not faulty or actually works properly. Otherwise I will return it for a full refund !!

    sort out your problems , PLEASE.............

    So, now my "can opener" Seawolves with cuts and sfb3, las3 can't quite take down a 37 so I have to either send in another fleet first as a set up or send in the wolves and then send something in after they die to finish the job. For what? 2.2 mil in res? So now it isn't worth going after dracs. The last two raids would have required me to coin to get anything done in. And if I want to mine I have to deal with the drac fleets to get started. So you have redesigned the game for coiners and base hitters. That's all that is left. Neither of which I enjoy. If you are playing a game and not enjoying it, either you are doing it wrong, or the game isn't for you. Congrats Kixeye, you have identified your demographic. It ain't me.

    Kixeye, u are biting the hand that feeds you.

    There is no point in playing if I cannot gather resources, even my SW's take damage on the new 29s and they have assult missiles with sbf2. My subs take damage because the salvages now hit underwater.

    Additionally whereas i used to be able to hit bases +/- 5 levels realistically i can now only hit 1 level down.

    I'm a L30 (new L45) and am only just developing my base hitting fleets, so cant hope to take on any base with L4 turrets and walls.

    I am NOT going to coin just to pay for resources. I will wait to see what you do but if that is nothing, I like many others will drift away from the game I love and you will be one more player the poorer for it.

    Let's face it Kixeye for you the more players that play and recommend the game the better off financially you will be - it's a numbers game, and yes some won't coin but some will - that's why you need the numbers. Don't shoot yourself in the foot.!!!!
