Thanks but no thanks devs. This game actually had potential but unless you spend a heap of money on fb coins for upgrades or spend 12 hours a day online, you will never get anywhere in this game.
Base attacking is slowing down what was a slow game to begin with. I will have to say goodbye to Battle Pirates I am afraid. I cannot accumulate enough resources to build certain defences, building or upgrade ships due to base attacks.
Thanks for your efforts but I really think that unless you have a major rethink of the way you have constructed this game, you will never really have a truely popular game.
Good luck and all the best with your next endeavour.
