    Its nice to see drones get some love. Now if only we could get a repair specialist for drones and make them actually much more useable, their repair times are way too high considering their level of power (save the p drones)

    I like drones as a diversionary force on hits and because they can go take out oil rigs in far corners for 100%. The restock time is high and a repair mod would be nice.

    Retrofit pack 19: *shrug* no comment on it, except it's about **** time cryos went into the retro-lab.

    Although I will never be pleased with a retrofit announcement until the corvette, destroyer, destroyer X, LC and LCX get their retrofits.

    Specialist pack: Dammit! Kixeye added in the Thresher to throw out my "predictions" by 1 *shakes fist* :trollface:

    Let it Burn: It is what it is

    Abyss: Probably aptly named.

    "We've added tokens to the FMs as alternate prizes and to the FAT. They will most likely be added to the upcoming event as well (read as very likely)."

    Tokens in the raid? That should be interesting to watch....

    FM: Lol at "firebat" drones, I love it when random words get squashed together to make new ones. I'll also be extremely surprised if the build time for these new drones take less than 2 weeks to fit onto a hull.

    *But* for the sake of being positive, it's nice to see the slow down of junk being pushed into the FM. Hopefully this is a start to cutting down the prize pool.

    Reaver removal: Time limited campaigns for tokens is just wrong, tokens should be available in regular content, especially the ship build tokens, the ones which players need most above all else, not shoved into time pressured content like those campaigns that are designed around getting coins from players without "the right fleets"

    June FAT: The jury's out on this one, in theory it sounds like a step in the right direction but it all depends on how this "toy box" works and if everyone gets the same toy box, if the equipment in the toy box is differentiated on base level or some other poor criteria I can see it actually making the issues worse and not better.

    But as I said - that's a wait and see then watch the fallout if it all goes belly-up.

    The only way June fat is going to be in the right direction is when they prevent level 90+ players from being able compete in the lower levels and against lower players..
    if you want the same prize level 90s get then you have to fight them for it.  criers, beggers an morons ,  pollute the game

    Well done on the sarcasm there, keep those gags coming :-)

    hi.. guys just asked aquestion what kind of celpone should i use to play BP when i am not on my loptop.your answer highly apreciated thanks
    it can't be played on your phone.
    android with puffin browser will play fine
    I had to purchase the photon App for the Iphone, it requires a second purchase to have the photon for your Ipad~ should you feel the need,,Note 'playing' via the photon app on a Iphone requires a certain amount of self hatred, but you can do mundane functions, start repairs and similar tasks, with out wanting to throw the phone out the window. I find it easier to get in to BP via facebook link, Kixeye's direct sign in page is especially hateful in the photon window.

    Yeah photon works for android too. And yeah both would be painful, although some can play quite well. I normally just use mine for checking if repairs need to be done, or autoing some raid targets or salvage occasionally

    Lol, most important feature in the new Base Relocate (relocate to the alliance members) doesn't work (alliance members tab just doesn't loads). So Kixeye. So style. So LOL.

    Anyway, who else got this problem?

But they cant fix the problems they have . like the mercenary fleets that launch them self ,and have been for well over a year now. What a bunch of greedy **** holes. Oh wait Will Harbin says they don't do stuff to piss of its customers . BAWAHAHAHAHA yea right

    all interesting ... what would have been good is a tournament or something like that where people can use their ships in an arena type environment ... hopefully they add a feature like this at some point.

    For what it's worth for the game of BP, that I like playing and would play more if the build time's of hull's were more for the player to do in the time we have to play in our own time without paying more for it or waiting almost 30+ days for just one hull of a fleet of five. I remember when a fleet of the top hull's was only 15+ day a hull, I could live with that again just seeing this ever happening to better the game not just for the game itself or the player's.

    The game of BP has just lost it's Flash or should I say gone one way, as of being more for the pocket's of it's player's like the last few change's like the FAT is more to the coiner now and has lost almost all the free to play, player. The game was for the free to play,player when I started playing BP three year's ago were we could play the game for everything if ya had the skill to get them even the target's where were ya at least grind your way to the point's of your target prize. 

    The last year or so has been hard for the free to play,player in all the game has turned from the player to the payer hull's coming out over powered, over 25 day's to build then by the time there build't their out dated unless ya pay for them then still now ya only get a month or two to use them before something newer replace's it that's still OP and is 30+ days to build.

    With this said were is the info on the thing's that are needed to move on in game for the free to play player's? Where is the hull's for the player's with skill not this one click stuff that BP keeps putting out every month. Need a hull or hull's with less build time's with tec with less build time's need the game to come back to help the low'er level's as well as the free to play, To bring in more player's this need's to be done and to keep new player's playing the game need's to have more lower tec and hull's to move on..


    Let the Game be forever in your Favor!!!...

    The kixeye page is the worst lagging POS i've ever seen, running my game off of FB page lately is less aggravating than trying to run it on Kixeye's own page. That is very telling, of the quality of the kixeye team. A third party platform, FB in this case, runs better than Kix's own site. 

    Now why is this? I don't know, but Kixeye did some changes in November or December, to the options menu at the top of their page. Those changes cause a huge lag problem, It forced me to move back to FB. I had been using Kixeye's site for oner a year at time, This is on my level 70 (FB account) My level 42 is off of armor games, but moved to kixeye's. Yes the lag is less than armor

    I guess I will no longer be doing the arena might as well take it down cause you will only have a handful doing it now. I mostly did them to rank my fleets now you're taking that away from us.... this was a free way for us to have fun just needed uranium.... then you jack up the cost from 1870 uranium to 2260 and again to 2380 you guys are pushing out your loyal players to other games managed by other companies. I for one am discussed with how you guys are treating us. Like I sated I won't be doing anymore "FAT's". So don't expect my coin to go to that. You guys had it working perfect before then you change it..... where we won our uranium back I liked this cause it was cost effective now it's like a raid and IDGAF about 5 to 6 raids a month. this is turning into a game that was fun to a job now.... I say week the forsaken missions get rid of raids and tournaments make the raids every 3 months

    Please Show support to The BP alliance crib. good info by the players for the players.

    ok i think kixeye is way too stingy with prizes for the time limited campaigns..  we take damage for just a rouge crew ..why not add uranium and tokens to the prize list..as much as the the grease monkeys is a good crew  it is a horrible prize for campaigns  .

    i wonder what that permacrete is and if it will help the turret defence in term of armor maybe more then what we have currently and i also would like to know what that relocation thing means are we still limited to one jump for a week
    yes relocation is still locked in at 7 days. permacrete is just a strong defense armor for towers and op. mainly because of how much power it comsumes
