Wasn't me who made this change on Wikipedia about BP, but clearly they were made recently:
Battle Pirates is a Massively Multiplayer Real Time Strategy (MMORTS) game with PvP synchronous combat, released May 2, 2011. The game takes place in the year 2067, where, due to a terrorist-sparked world war and a 95% extinction level, only a small amount of Earth's original landmass and population remains. The remaining survivors are split into two factions: the Forsaken, the impoverished who rely on engineering hacks, guerilla warfare, and piracy, and the oppressive Draconian Empire, the once elite citizens who have now become a giant military complex. Players build an island base, place defensive turrets and create armored ships. Battle Pirates also allows for customization and personalization of armadas.
The game is the only browser-based massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game with a 24/7 persistent environment on Facebook. Harbin explained the game as the "first synchronous real time strategy of its kind, and we're very proud of that." Battle Pirates is focused on player-versus-player gameplay. At its daily peak the game has about 90.000 players online at once. The company loves to scam the players on this game and make it so you need to spend $50 to get premium membership to complain about them scamming. The best bit is that they don't even reply.The company also changes the stats on the ships when they're using it in the raids if they are not making enough money, they change the stats of the ships so they do more damage, put more armor and move evade saying the players are 'gaming' the targets. This has made the game near impossible to beat without paying a pretty penny.
