    Personally not gonna bother with the medals as I care not about leader boards so no worries for me there also with only 2hr repair on my dock means I'm not gonna bother with a patrol fleet either as I'd take more damage from that being smashed than my dock.  For me this has been a good update :) Thanx kixeye things just got a little easier.

    You can do multiple hits, as long as you dont stay between 25-50%!! If you stay there you loose medals.

    So how long til they tell us that we cant have warehouses or outposts unprotected......


    Kixeye had it **** right the first time they laid out the system......

    They made people protect warehouses or lose medals.....That should of never changed. Seriously if a level 65 can attack a level 40 and 100% them the old system was perfect. The level 40 could rim the level 65 take out a warehouse and win medals back. It was raining tears of high levels "I dont want to change my base" boo hooo hooo, 

    Now in the interest of  "Square bases are not in the spirit of the game."

    How the hell is leaving warehouses/ OP / tactical lab/ buildings / on the outside in the spirit of the game? I see square bases and leaving OP in the channel as the same thing. How is it any different....oh yes people cant 100% them this way. Oh so people only get 2 stars instead of 3. 

    This game designers catering to one side but not the other side is sickening. It also makes me sad to see so many people crying about the medal system 1 weeks ago calling them noobcubes. Back in the day yes back in the day when the game was balanced we had "All our buildings/ Warehouses/ Op/ and docks on the inside. Oh yeah, if we are making people do things. Why not go old school? blahhhhhhhhhhhhh
    I agree that rez should be more at stake but it is not.  Protecting your warehouse now at this point is really no longer possible even with the advanced base weapons and guard fleets we can have.  I have not seen a  player over level 55 with base that protected the warehouses still and was not a complete farm in months.  And I didn't say that square bases shouldn't be allowed simply that was kixeyes position on them.  I don't like them but that doesnt mean they arent a viable strategy.  And people with square bases aren't protecting their resources or their dock so it's kind of a circular arguement.  Now if Kixeye was willing to give us more land then it may be fair to make warehouses and rez more worth protecting.  Doesn't need to be alot, 5 tiles ought to do it.  Then require at least 2 wares and the op to be taken in order to reach the 50% threshhold.  I don't have the answer but it is probably out there.

    Edit: it does seem wierd that Kixeye is catering to one set of players as they have stated in the past that changes will not be made to affect only a certain group of players.

    So just logged on and found out that my base is suddenly illegal, according to Kixeye and that I can't view the map or launch fleets till I fix it. So since I had enough to start another ship that will take 5 days to build my little protest will last at least 5 days 15 hours and maybe longer.  It's a game and now they are dictating the strategy that we use to play it.  Don't like a square base?  Don't use one.  The OP could be hit by the right weapon, so it wasn't a design that kept people from getting points, so why get rid of it?

    The bottom line is people who wanted to play the game their way, are now being forced to play kixeye's and higher level players way. I see it all the time n here, crying over square bases and the way certain players play, it's their game let them play it how they want. The player base should be upset about being forced to play a way dictated by kixeye, i remember all the issues people had over the arbiter and other thing placed in by kixeye, but nothing is done about it. I also remember the 1 week no play by a large group of players that got the res changed from all elite to half and half, i think its about time to let kixeye know we want this crap metal issue removed with a no play until removed time.
    Players can still have a square base if they wish, I dont see what the problem is, if there worried about giving aliance points away then dont join an alliance. Since the feature came out you had to kill the OP for points, so up to now these noob cubes have been cheating the system that was intended for alliance feature. 
    Cheating . Cloning fleets is cheating using a square base is STRATEGY at the cost of their DOCKS (and 4 hours of repairs)

    I feel if they want or require us to keep buildings, we need OP6 so we have more space to put them all very little as it is, and with new weaps it's really gonna be needed.
    I personally like square bases (from attackers point of view) however I don't think it's right to dictate how one should have to build their base.

    This new medal system is a **** joke, first of all what is the point???......what do we the players get out of winning medals?.....secondly, now if you peak a base and retreat to hit, the peak is counted as a defeat so then you end up losing your medals LOL....wow kixeye who ever it was that thought up this dumb medal idea needs to be awarded a medal himself for being a dumbass. Instead of putting useless **** like this into the game how about fixing your servers, the lag on this game for the past month has been....well i cant think of an appropriate word to describe how bad it has been, map not loading, ships not loading, docking issues, ship sailing off the edge of the map, invisible turret platforms due to loading difficulties, ships spinning in battle the list goes on, this game is a complet **** mess.

    Because Kixeye wants to bury all the "complaints" in one thread not many people are gonna read .

    Added to the release notes. Essentially, the a building cannot be 4 Land Tiles away from water on all sides. Hope that clarifies things.
    why the hell are you guys gonna force us to make a base design how you see fit ? last time i checked i made my base how i want to make it not how kixeye tells me to.

    The thing is that square bases take away from the diversity in base design. Not only is it fun to design a decent base and have it tested to its limits, but it is also more interesting for the base hitter to have a variety of designs to try to break. I can't imagine how boring base hitting would be if everyone just folded and had a square base instead of trying to come up with a new and interesting design to keep out attackers. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't bother hitting bases at all.

    Im with Stan. I have a square base as well, but got attacked while at work came home hit repair and was going to get res. Now I can't launch because illegal base design. Can not re-design since base needs repairing. When the base is done repairing I will be fast asleep. When the bubble drops I will be fast asleep. So I can not deploy fleets unless I PAY to PLAY.

    A square base is one of the possible base strategic designs so taking this option away is actually removing diversity.

    It is to force you not to have square base but I think upper guys at kix like the game creator were behind this new change just redesign your base it is the only thing you can do dude :ar!

    I wondered how long it take kix to do that for all the cry babies. Next I guess people will cry about bases being too hard and kix will make it illegal to make a hard base. Cant believe they actually changed the game for that.   No I do not have a square base and never have. I agree if a base design does not have narrow channels or connected diag tiles then there should be no rule.

    Wow, this is really a stupid idea. So much for bouncing any ideas off the players before implementing such changes into the game. Seems like I remember a certain CEO making some promise but then CEO's are not much different than politicians. :( - I guess I can just call my losses and know that my wallet will appreciate the change as it will only get larger from the money that I keep. KixEye should wake up and trash this idea.

    Hell ya. This has to be the best part of the update. I had to make a square base just to show my teammates that ppl can't have Noob Cubes anymore. I bet the frubble nation will rise again with all the noob cubers now needing a way to stop from ppl getting their OP now :P

    I cracked 4 bases today, and 3/4 I could not get 100% due to 1 oil rig being on the outside. Not that I give a **** cause all I want is alli points, but I thought I would point that out.

    Well, I am no longer participating in the alliance feature of this game so you can have at my OP now... I wonder how many other players will leave the alliance portion of this game.. hmmm... I plan to still play with my group but the alliance part of this game was weak anyways. This game changes all the time and to think people get paid money to come up with these lame ideas... lol... oh well.. adapt or leave...

    So now my alliance is starting to suffer. 2 level 40-45 players got smashed by players over level 65. Just for these **** medals. Both players have quit. I guess kixeye wants a smaller player base. And 1 of these players was actually one who coined a decent amount as well so they lose money here. Been saying this is the STUPIDEST idea that kixeye has EVER come up with. Looks like my point might get proven.

    Just like everything else, money buys power, and power corrupts, and thru the ashes a new beginning arrives, this is what is happening with Battle Pirates now, all those that have coined alot have bought the new rules, Just like in politics, those that have money buy the laws that the rest of us must abide by, they care less of the feelings of the whole, and only care about those that contribute to the cause, well done. If your not willing to give 25% of your hard work earnings to kixeye, dont think your opinion will matter, again, just like politics. The good news is with kixeye, you can always leave, quit playing, etc, but you wont be thrown in jail ( like you would in real life if you rebel )so your options are yours, and i for see many choosing the last leaving only those that want to be in power here to war with each other, sure wish politics worked the same way, anyways good luck folks in what ever path you choose, and save your money for bubbles, instead of ships, or raids

    than hit retreat, and find a different base to hit, its pretty east to me

    I am not a fan of the square bases either but being told how to design your base is not right in this game. I did not see a large influx of square bases happening. Most people were designing bases on their own or within their alliance. 

    I do not like the fact that we are not being allowed to choose how we would like to enjoy the game. I am surprised that kixeye is not coming out with a rule that says your OP has to be on an island in the middle of your base. Or that those of us who have chosen to demolish our resource generators have to have 3 of each type at least or something to that effect. I mean we cannot delete more then 2 of our whs now.

    Next kixeye will be telling us who is allowed to be in the top 100 Globally on this medals leader board as well.
