    Just another scam by kixeye to get you to coin more, i suspect the coin numbers were down last raid so they have to try and make up the revenues somewhere. Don't fall for it people

    So helpful, thank you ..lol

    Actully the new Damage protection rules DISCOURAGE you from Farming .. as you have to wait for the base to repair every time ...

    Just don't hit the repairbutton for a while. No medals for the attacker then.
    And by the way I think Kixeye is ruining this game by these stupid extras. They should focus on repairing glitches and they should start to listen to the players. This new medalthing takes away the fun of playing.
    Why the ridiculous long buildingtimes? Why the ridiculous long research times, etc.
    They should change that instead of coming up with that medalthingy.

    Once you get to around 150 points, you don't get any points from the guys that haven't won any yet - regardless of level.  Give it a few days and I'm sure it will shake out.  I think this is one of the best additions to the game since I've begun playing.

    Having a square base didn't guarantee safety anyway...  If you weren't careful I could use siege morts to splash it dead anyway.  But, in the end it was a cheap cop out...  If you learn how to build a good base you won't have to worry about your OP OR your Dock getting hit
    Absolutely. 

    LOVE the Flagpole Sitta quote in your signature section.  It's one of my favourite songs and favourite lines from it.

    my base is now totally wide open cause nothing can stop dreads or the new ships since january.
    the flatter my base gets the more complaints that are gonna go out on the forums till the square base goes back in,
    it should be our right to make any base we want and i dont give a **** but they got no right to force us to have to let the entire base be destroyed if we cant defend it with forsaken tech. and we cant.
    since the new rules went in i changed my base to the approved kix design a big open circle with a island for the outpost in the middle and everything else on the outside where it can get flattened since i cant protect it anyway. they have decided to stick it to the non coiners so thats what there doing,
    i am unable to coin the tier 4 and 5 defenses and i cant get there without coining i did the math against repair fleets IMPOSSIBLE. plus i have a life and cant sit on this thing 14 hours non stop trying to reach 4 and 5 without coining. this game has alot to learn about considering EVERYBODY when they write the difficulty level into those **** raids.

    You must be a very special snowflake. By the way, there are ways to stop the new ships. But no base is totally unbreakable. What fun would the game be if there was an unbreakable base? Everyone would adopt the perfect design, and base hitting and the game would die. Get over it and work on your base.
    Quit Spring 2015 or so, returned Jan 2019.

    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)
    Can u not read properly? When the alliance feature came out it was designed so you get points for killing the OP, now when a player wants to be a part of the alliance system but then designs a noob cube they are cheating/Exploiting the feature. At the end of the day you can still have your noob cubes just means that you OP is no longer safe which, as hitting a persons OP is the main objective, seems like a fix to those that were too lazy to build a proper base and cheated the intended system for alliance points
    Can you not UNDERSTAND that it was a STRATEGY at the cost of them actually PLAYING due to their DOCK BEING UNPROTECTED . It's BS that all the BOO HOO HOO birds just cause they couldn't kill an op complained to get them to change it . You can't kill person a's OP MOVE THE **** OVER TO PERSON B AND KILL THEIR OP AFTER YOU TAKE OUT PERSON A's DOCK . DON'T F'N WHINE ABOUT PERSON A AND THEIR BASE DESIGN CHOICE PUT ON YOUR BIG BOY PANTS AND BE A PIRATE . But no you wanna be a WUSS AND COMPLAIN. Why not complain about the things that are NEEDED to actually fix the game instead of BS like SQUARE BASES.
    stop crying Mr Cap Lock.  Anyway, perhaps you cannot notice that this change was created by the players.

    Kix's first go at the medals system:  50% plus Outpost or Warehouse for 2 stars.
    Players:  No way on warehouse, we like our designs with warehouses on the outside
    Kixeye:  Okay, we will change, 50% plus Outpost.

    Oh yeah, that means that hitting the outpost must be POSSiBLE, if the whole ranking system depends on it.

    Did you really think the square base was in the spirit of the game to begin with?  I did not.  It always seemed strange to me that it was possible to completely prevent someone from any possibility of getting alliance points via base design outside of weapons range.

    Medals are meaningless, who cares, also if your base is badly damaged they could 100% your base but infact only inflict 10% damage depending on how much health your structures have. so no poping your bubble early will not give them medals.
    Unfortunately that is not the way its working .. if you kill the OP on a base already 99% damaged, you will get 2* medals.

    If however you attack a 99% dead base and FAIL to get the OP .. you get no penalty ...

    Its a win-win for the attacker, and a lose-lose for anyone who pops their bubble before the base is repaired.
    I killed yesterday 2 % from a dead base (all damage before was not made from me) no OP, only some resource crates and 30 % of a ship and got 3 medals. What a fail!

    You have missed the point. You don't have to wait for it to repair to get the points again. You can attack a damaged op with no bubble and get the stars again. unlike alliance points

    HAHA I got flattend but a lvl 83 ..  Before the Medal system came out.  THE issue is the high lvl Bullys are goin to take all the medal from them 40-50 that us 40-50 need to hit.  Leaving us with nothing ...   There should BE A MEDAL LOSS for hitting 10 lvls under your own PERIOD.

    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...
    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

    LMFAO if you had to hide your OP in a square base, who needs you in an alliance lmfao. Build a base the right way, stop being cheap and keeping ppl from getting points from you with out having to properly defend it. Its loser **** like that, that makes the alliance feature lame. Plus you a lvl F'n 60 lmfao I bet you frubble too don't you lmfao

    The fix is simple, no square base design allowed if your part of an alliance, but leave those alone that are not in an alliance, they should be able to , and build as they like.

    My god, cheating is not building a square base its the players decision. I see all you noob criers coming here crying "your cheating me if I can't get your op boo hoo " like your entitled to something what a pile of crap that anyone would cry so much over a base design, get over it move on to another base. God i wish they would enforce the over 21 rule.

    Anyone notice the extreme silence on kixeye's part? Not a single mod is willing to back this move up with the company line or anything. We're taking it in the rear but that's the best we get. We send in feedback regarding this and are told to make use of the forums and we get... Silence. Awesome customer support yet again kixeye. Oh by the way, your new medal system ... is the worst addition ever to battle pirates!

    Firstly WITH the RIGHT FLEET DESIGN even a SQUARE BASE OUTPOST COULD BE HIT . secondly IT'S A STRATEGY GAME AND KEEPING PEOPLE FROM GETTING THEIR OP EVEN WITH A SQUARE BASE DESIGN IS A CHOICE . DON'T LIKE IT THEN TROLL THEIR DOCKS . Thirdly what's with the "spirit of the game " BS that's just Kixie talk for THE COINERS PISSING AND MOANING ABOUT non/light spenders strategy choices .

    There are always loads of things people are going to argue about relative to this game.  It is perfectly understandable to me that kixeye would want to do things to keep the game interesting, but lately it seems like the lower level players keep getting left out of the equation of their thinking.  The game continues to become more challenging with all of the newer hulls and weapons that have come out over the course of the past year or so.  And some players are just more adept at playing the game than others, too.  But if you don't have the tools to be competitive, then things like the new Medals system are totally meaningless for low-level players.  And would someone please explain the benefits of being on top (or near the top) of the leaderboard?  What do all of those medals actually do for us?  You can take your 110 Battle Pirates medals and $5.00 and get a Hot n Ready pizza at Little Caesar's, that's what.  LOL.  

    This will probably go over like a **** in the punch bowl, but I think things were much better when players were restricted to hitting others who were within 5 levels up or down of their own level.  I remember how people would complain then, too..."Hey, you're a level 32 and I'm only a 27 (back when level 30-something would have been considered more advanced)...way to go you manly thing you!"  LOL, remember that?  But it was still a better system in my opinion...and of course we all know how opinions are...everybody has one.  Or how about those days when we had to travel across the map in order to reveal it?  Anyone remember the Black Sea?  I think everyone was very glad that kixeye decided to reveal the entire map to us during the very first raid and left it that way afterward because before that happened nobody had any real sense of what sectors were then and we all fought anyone we saw...and, "Hey, that was MY level 8 zynthium mine, ****!  GET OFF or I will sink your little **** **** Battle Barges with my Floating Fortresses!!"...and the fight for the mines ensued.  And so now Battle Barges and Floating Fortresses have long since become obsolete...but that is all the low level guys are able to build their accounts with and acquiring some of the drac hulls only comes if they get help from the more advanced players.

    I don't suppose that any of you bad-**** were ever a noob with poor defense capabilities and crap fleets, were you?  I see a lot of dipstick high level players flattening bases as many as 25 to 28 levels below their own...with that I have to ask just WHO REALLY is the chickenshit?  You know full well that guy has nothing to retaliate with effectively, so yea, it takes a 5 gallon bucket of ballz for you to smash a lower level base and have the audacity to call them ****, etc.  I have been in this game for almost 3 years now and I've seen some real dynamic conduct by some fine upstanding pieces of **** whom I KNOW wouldn't dare conduct themselves like such morons in real life or they would be in serious need of some major dental work.  People are playing this game to have a good time and we all make friends with people from all around the world in the process.  Whenever someone complains about something they don't necessarily understand they are automatically accused of crying, etc.  There are a few of you hot rods I would really like to meet in real life, and I do not mean that in a good way.  My kids have never acted as moronic as many of the people I have seen in this game and on this forum.  I am not a noob, and I can usually hold my own fairly well in the game, but I lose battles just like anyone else.  There will always be difficult bases to conquer, but none are completely infallible.   You guys think it is funny that new players are quitting the game?  Kixeye should be alarmed by it because that is potential monetary gain for them going right down the tubes on them.  People get hooked on those things which they really enjoy doing, like the rest of us did.  There is not much point in trying to enjoy yourself when someone more than twice your size keeps clobbering you and telling you what a **** you are, etc...no incentive to stick around.  And despite what anyone says, the fact that there are no alliance points for hitting bases below a certain level is meaningless to a lot of players.  They do it just because they enjoy being terrorists of a sort.  Some of them do it because they were probably frubble pirates themselves and never had to even open their own salvages up much before they became level 60 or something and they don't know how to hit a base closer to their own level without getting embarrassed.   

    Kixeye used to espouse the square base design...it was in their tutorials once upon a time as being perhaps the best option to protect your Outpost.  As the game has become increasingly more difficult, people have found ways...fair ways...legal ways...to use the tools they have in order to protect their OPs.  The square base, or noob cube as some have decided it should be dubbed, has evolved just for that reason.  And to coin a phrase, or use the same attitude as the bullies, people who just have to get their points have "CRIED" about it, and now this big celebration.  I read kixeye's response to a friend of mine who asked why he had to have his OP inside of 4 tiles from the water (you see there was never any foreknowledge or explanation of this forthcoming change) and she was informed that "It was never kixeye's intention that your OP would be untouchable."  I say bullshit.  When kixeye was preaching square bases, it was before we had Solid Fuel Boosters and nothing we had before that could reach anything in the middle of the base.  Basically what this change is for is to promote this Medals program, again something which is entirely meaningless to the low level players.

    Ok...can you tell it's been a very long time since I've posted on this forum?  LOL.  Sorry for being so verbose.  I'm sure I lost the bean-dip level IQ guys way back in the first paragraph...you know the ones I mean...the ones who always say "stop crying and go play farmville"...

    Peace Out!  Arrrrr.

    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)
    Can u not read properly? When the alliance feature came out it was designed so you get points for killing the OP, now when a player wants to be a part of the alliance system but then designs a noob cube they are cheating/Exploiting the feature. At the end of the day you can still have your noob cubes just means that you OP is no longer safe which, as hitting a persons OP is the main objective, seems like a fix to those that were too lazy to build a proper base and cheated the intended system for alliance points
    Can you not UNDERSTAND that it was a STRATEGY at the cost of them actually PLAYING due to their DOCK BEING UNPROTECTED . It's BS that all the BOO HOO HOO birds just cause they couldn't kill an op complained to get them to change it . You can't kill person a's OP MOVE THE **** OVER TO PERSON B AND KILL THEIR OP AFTER YOU TAKE OUT PERSON A's DOCK . DON'T F'N WHINE ABOUT PERSON A AND THEIR BASE DESIGN CHOICE PUT ON YOUR BIG BOY PANTS AND BE A PIRATE . But no you wanna be a WUSS AND COMPLAIN. Why not complain about the things that are NEEDED to actually fix the game instead of BS like SQUARE BASES.
    stop crying Mr Cap Lock.  Anyway, perhaps you cannot notice that this change was created by the players.

    Kix's first go at the medals system:  50% plus Outpost or Warehouse for 2 stars.
    Players:  No way on warehouse, we like our designs with warehouses on the outside
    Kixeye:  Okay, we will change, 50% plus Outpost.

    Oh yeah, that means that hitting the outpost must be POSSiBLE, if the whole ranking system depends on it.

    Did you really think the square base was in the spirit of the game to begin with?  I did not.  It always seemed strange to me that it was possible to completely prevent someone from any possibility of getting alliance points via base design outside of weapons range.
    Firstly WITH the RIGHT FLEET DESIGN even a SQUARE BASE OUTPOST COULD BE HIT . secondly IT'S A STRATEGY GAME AND KEEPING PEOPLE FROM GETTING THEIR OP EVEN WITH A SQUARE BASE DESIGN IS A CHOICE . DON'T LIKE IT THEN TROLL THEIR DOCKS . Thirdly what's with the "spirit of the game " BS that's just Kixie talk for THE COINERS PISSING AND MOANING ABOUT non/light spenders strategy choices .

    my base is now totally wide open cause nothing can stop dreads or the new ships since january.
    the flatter my base gets the more complaints that are gonna go out on the forums till the square base goes back in,
    it should be our right to make any base we want and i dont give a **** but they got no right to force us to have to let the entire base be destroyed if we cant defend it with forsaken tech. and we cant.
    since the new rules went in i changed my base to the approved kix design a big open circle with a island for the outpost in the middle and everything else on the outside where it can get flattened since i cant protect it anyway. they have decided to stick it to the non coiners so thats what there doing,
    i am unable to coin the tier 4 and 5 defenses and i cant get there without coining i did the math against repair fleets IMPOSSIBLE. plus i have a life and cant sit on this thing 14 hours non stop trying to reach 4 and 5 without coining. this game has alot to learn about considering EVERYBODY when they write the difficulty level into those **** raids. 
    LOL  Fred Scrooge you are level 53....where did you learn that nothing can stop the DNX?...LMAO.  Build a better base,, upgrade your turrets ,, and platforms to level 4,,use level 3 specials on your turrets.  Also build a better guard,, and get DU4 researched ASAP...you may stand a chance then.
    I think what Fred is saying is WITHOUT Drac hulls/Raid Tech which is always t4/t5 you don't have a snowballs chance in hell of stopping DN-x 
    Toy, I really don't understand why people like you that have such a grudge against Kixeye, continue to play this game.

    forsaken defenses are inadequit to protect the outpost,
    since this is your new rules and you are now making it easier for the coiners to destroy non coiners basess and outposts,
    i DEMAND new turrets researchable that can STOP every **** fleet thats on the water,
    the inability to stop someone from entering your base and killing your outposts is why i made a round base.
    change the **** rules back NOW or hear from me daily till it does.

    Maybe work on a base guard? You will probably get more improvement that way than demanding that Kix change their game for you.

    Dude,  its more than just base guard.   When level 60, 70, 103 !!  can smash a level 40.....then there is a balance problem.   If the choose to do a SQUARE base to defend their base,  then good for them.   Apparently it must have been working for all the coiners to cry foul and twist Kixeye in to changing it.

    I get it,  Kixeye knows who pays them...and they will ALWAYS cater to them....  so if you don't coin....enjoy the free game ...well at least as much as you can.      

    Now you have this retarded medal system that will encourage more attacks on lower ranks.    In the past, I would just spend the resources, so the attacker got very little and costed them more in repairs.   Now with the senseless medal system  (adopted from Vega Conflict...bad move)  you'll have high levels just hunt to crap out of level 40-ish players

    Maybe they should color code the medals..... if you attack someone 20 levels beneath you,  you get PINK medals because you're a wussy.

    First, Fred Scrooge - the one complaining that I commented to - is not level 40, he is level 53.  By now he should be able to hold off some of the big fleets some of the time, and should be working on a reasonable guard fleet.  But he probably hasn't, since he had a square base he probably neglected working on base guards.  He maybe even neglected working on his turrets.  So he does not like this change, because his base is now a farm, and he does not want to improve it, he wants the old way.
    Next, the potential medal value of low medal bases goes down as the attacker has more medals than the defender..  Soon some of the 40's bases will be worth almost no medals at 100% flat.  Then this whole thing will blow over.

    Quit Spring 2015 or so, returned Jan 2019.
