    If this proposed new rule against players utilizing the two day buddy bubbles is implemented by Kixeye, then how do current Kixeye Battle Pirates go about closing down their Kixeye accounts/ player numbers...?

    easy ........ Dont log in and play farmville instead
    So coining is cheating is it??  REMEMBER I coin so YOU can play for free noob!!!!

    EVERY TIME I SEE A PLAYER COMPLAINING IN THE FORUM ABOUT BEING 20 LEVELS LOWER AND BEING ATTACKED I DESTROY 20 LEVEL 50 BASES

    geeze, 88 pages of whining. lets make it simple: an 8 hour bubble with any damage over 25% beginning when the repair button is pressed. it drops when any base is hit. end of story. no body needs more than that for any reason.

    Why not just have the bubble time equal the repair time. this is fair and ensures no ones base will be vulnerable to attack until its properly repaired, keep the 25% damage to get a bubble.
    no complex formulas, no fuss no muss.

    If your hit by a bigger player hit him back, dont take it laying down get a doz friends to help you!!!!
    earn respect and learn from your mistake, take the hits as a learning lesson on what works in your base and what doesnt.

    how about make it where if some one is hit by the same person more than 2 times in a row and little to no damage has happened. you start taking 2 mill of each resource for the rest of the attacks that are made to achieve the buddy bubble. in the past i had noticed that was happening on battle logs i would see res lost below what i had also taken from a base.

    I approve of the modifications to the bubble system. However I think bubbles should last as long as repairs. seems kind of simple. no real damage, no real bubble. if someone rockets my dock or magic lab, I should get a bubble till its repaired.

    Q: My Dock is going to get pummeled all the time; how will I be able to launch my fleets?
    A: If players are plotting against you, recruit some allies or join an existing group. Players will be much less likely to continuously attack your dock if they know that your allies will retaliate against them. There’s strength in numbers.

    So i only read the last question because that's whats on my mind about all this ...

    is it me or the answer is pretty much "You dont like, You **** off, And we don't care as long as we make more money"

    Also what will tell us when we get attacked by someone we dont know from different sector and they just rimmed our base, THAT it wasnt infact KIXEYE itself? just saying, seems easy to achieve.

    every online games have bots u just dont know which ones until you try to communicate with, but wait you cant communicate with others sectors.... how u wise **** u really thought like genius about this one, didn't chu?

    If only you had a decent OR even a fair ALLIANCE SYSTEM for this game, then we could consider your proposal, what most people don't get is this thread is all about kixeye makin more money, nothing to help their players or make the game better for them in the end.

    UPDATE AND ADDON UR F***ING GAME KIXEYE STOP TRYIN TO JUST FIND WAYS TO MAKE MORE MONEY WITH LAMER AND LAMER EXCUSES, PEOPLE WILL MAKE A LEGIT CLONE OF THIS GAME AND PASS U OVER SOON


    edit. I'll relax and just tell myself the main designer of the game in kixeye team was probly fired and they screwed up big time, what else could lead such a good game into such pathetics situation one after the other?

    It would help the big players more. (they have launch pad 5 to take a day and a half repair/bubble)
    But I do agree with you. Players should get a bubble to the longest timed building is repaired after the 25% Damage to base minimum.
    As far as rocketing docks go ya u rocket thier dock a few times back and forth and it will eventually stop. (boring)

    There should be a "no PVP" option for players that enjoy the game but aren't interested in PvP.

    well on bases that are higher level a one hour bubble is useless if someone hits 3 or 4 turrets each can take 6 hours to repair so what good does a one hour bubble do??

    Is there an ETA on this? I'm sick of these high level players that hit your base and then bubble buddy. Makes the game very lame.

    I doubt they would release that info, but I would imagine people "buying a bubble" is a just a small fraction of their income in this game. It is WAY too expensive.

    I'm willing to spend some $$ during a raid, but not to bubble. If they make staying non-PvP too difficult, I'll just leave and spend my money elsewhere. I'm sure I'm not the only person out there that feels this way.

    Build a base and not a farm. Pretty simple advice.

    The way the games set up now I can kill 3-4 Du4 turrets and not give the person a bubble. So whats the difference if you get a 1 hour bubble or not?

    If you want to spend your time "building a base", go play Sim City. I don't enjoy Sim City any more than I enjoy spending time worrying about building a base. I arranged a basic base defense but it wasn't FUN (which is why I play this game).

    While research/upgrades take time, it is to get more stuff for your fleets so you can attack easier or higher level stuff.

    I'd like to know updates on the potentials here. What are you going to do about dock harassment issues, repair times, etc. Before you implement this new system, you should test a few scenarios out. You don't want a group of players attempting to keep one player locked in their base by repeatedly hitting it. You also don't want players to gang up on another player to constantly hit a dock and keep that player unable to play. Considering other players have no way of keeping attackers out of someone else's base, counting on friends has limited capabilities. Players who hit bases leave the base 10 seconds before timing out, hit the move button right as their ship exists battle, and goes right back in before the base being hit can launch or another player can capture. So friends cannot stop an attacker that way.

    Bubbles frustrate players who love base hitting, but they keep one person from being harassed to a certain extent. Minimum bubble time should be enough to at least repair the dock if damaged, and the counter should not begin until the player who was hit gets a chance to hit the repair button. No matter how you arrange this system, in one way or another it will be abused. You must consider the rules from all angles... and when you take away the ease of creating a bubble, base attackers should have something removed. Perhaps a delay time between attacks on bases... even a minute would even the odds somewhat. That idea, by the way, would keep the same player from attacking a base to block a hit as well.

    Some players like to hit bases. Other players like fleet verses fleet. Some like both. But a person will not enjoy the game if they cannot play it.
