    I have been stuck in battle in a Drac base for about 2 hours.....this is the 2nd time today...the 1 st time i switched from FB to Kikeye and it reset ....as if nothing had occured....your reporting system for bugs is inaccessible to me and i am tired of wasting my time on this . It appears that you only service the coiners.


    Issue a recall command to the fleet and wait 15 minutes.  DO NOTHING else to the fleet.  The server will timeout and release the fleet.

    I saw today that the weights and damage numbers have been adjusted.  Ok, great, but those same under-powered super old weapons are WAY expensive in resource/build time.  Moving in the right direction at least, I may log in for more than repairing the base.

    Bullsh*** at its best, what the hell. ur reducing things for high level player and coiner which can earn uranium to do that upgrades and the smaler peeps which cant kill 10-20 armadas in a row still sucking. Nobody of the higher player need that trash but the lower guys it would be a helpful tool. 
    Ur thinking about this new trash or did u puke it out between 2 mondaymorning coffee? 
    I cant believe that ur thinking about the results any second.

    ratting after your 3 month.  


    3 out of 10.

    not only did you remove the token campaign.

    you now shove more crap in so called elite tier because it is new so again less tokens, ohh and by the way did you not say that no more than 3 a month would be added, or did i dream that part, twice in 2 month you added 4.

    you have not changed at all kixeye. you will never change. 

    infact when typing this i realise the above score of 3 is too generous and demote it to 2 out of 10

    they did do something about ship build times in a way. look at the build times for just the hull. most are 5 day builds for just the hull.
    but the rhino is a 2 day 12 hour build for the hull. one of the most powerful ships in the game with the shortest build time in the game for any of the newer ships.
    and then the next hull they brought out, back above 5 days, so they did jack shlt

    well we now get screwed by more damage in 85s, armadas and more. It is a joke they may look at repairtimes while the damage is raised. Kixeye will always have double standards somehow.

    After taking in today updates, changes and fixes and absorbing what has been displayed, the $13 I spent yesterday to speed up my HC build is 
    the last money i will spend with Kixeye.  Bitterly disappointed with the Drac Co-axial nerf.

    4 new item in Tier 4, 2 are worthy the rest are tier 3. Obvious to deny ship build tokens to just one mission.

    Do they really have still a programming team or is it already maybe fully changed into a demolition team for the final destruction of all ? new issues, new bugs and update of the amount of damage to a higher level seems the new policy.

    I am calling liar, liar pants on fire Kixeye.  They say they listened and yet again we get 4 new items, 2 of which are garbage, in the FM elite tier this week.  You are yet again proving you are only paying lip service to most of what the community has been asking for over the past year.  Maybe make the garbage 2 (explosive system 4 that is barely better than 3 and that 300 power oil slick junk) and put them in tier 3 would show you actually care about slowing content increase

    ye keep saying coming out with a plan, there is stuff in that letter that is being delivered in december.... other stuff will take time, its not a quick fix that everyone normally complains about. This looks like a detailed design that going by this is already in development.... so it will come in drops not in 1 big bang. the research and design phase alone is a couple of months work
     This sounds good but how many times has Kixeye said they will address build repair times and keep asking for more time,I can think of 2 times and no real changes have been made they should lower build repair times 1st then **** around with the other changes that will take along time
    I would just like to say...Kixeye should have at least Half Repair time's all the time...even for weekly's   also on the weekly..when you reset, you should be able to keep all the point's you have scored on the first round...Mostly,  WE NEED to have reduced BUILD TIME"S ...so we can be able to build our Fleet's Quicker ...to keep up with all the new chalenges ...Come on KIXEYE...HELP us out

    PVP & Forsaken R&D

    If you are currently researching a reward, your base will indicate a skull icon:


    If you attack a base that is displaying this icon and destroy that player’s Outpost, you will increase their R&D research time by 8 hours. If you are also researching R&D at the time of the attack, you will increase their research time by 8 hours and reduce your research time by 8 hours.Remember: to participate in R&D, you must be level 50 and have upgraded your Outpost to level 6.


    What BS is this MORE time????????  This is what we DO NOT WHAT!!!!! This game has just gone way to FAR!!!! Why would ya do this when we already have TOO MUCH stuff that take's TOO MUCH TIME!!!!

    thank you Rustdog...so the poor bastid  gets a 32 hr penalty. In theory he could have 1.5 or so days tacked on every 24 hrs with this system.

    Would the guy responsible please chime in as to how this will be addressed? It has the potential for lower levels to never complete the first research. Making it detrimental to even start. Guess it would have been too easy to add in the code for the salves, where you have to hit same level or above for this to apply. Sorry but this pisses me off as much as the Reaper nerf!

    I'll say it again, bad bad bad idea..........
    This was so poorly thought out it is truly amazing.  Who wants more research time??
  • well kix has done it again rewarded the lazy players by increasing the missiles the long time moderate coiners had to dump to stand still against the big boys allowing the lazy players to catch up with the moderate coiners kixs mainstay of coin thanks again kix for nothing

    It is good around X-Mas time that times are longer. Kixeye loves it to promote you not play BP but sit and sing around the X-mas tree lolmao.

    Who in their right mind would even bother with the R&D crap?  100K uranium for a 2% critical hit?  FFS!  I was really hoping that Kix had finally taken what people had been complaining about for MONTHS seriously.  How foolish of us to believe it.  You "rebalance" weapons because the crap you guys keep putting out is so over-powered.  So what do you do?  You add an even BIGGER, over-powered hull, weapon, and specials.  Ya, that was brilliant!
    I'm thinking that your developers are actually in Colorado smoking that weed, because no one with any intelligence would think this was good.

    yet another thought, why not make it over 25% but no OP the attacker looses 8 hrs research, he has to commit to doing the objective prior to hitting the base, that way there is risk as well as reward.

    Makes much more sense than what we have now.
    They're calling in Greenpeace...to save the vanishing whales. Greenpeace showed up, looked around, shook their heads sadly, and said it's hopeless....

    What if ya DON'T want to do some of the Campaign's?? Then it's a CHORE not what most or all what to do! Just saying the fact's of this is making Player's do stuff they would not what to do or in respect it's saying if ya what this ya have to make way into doing something ya did not have to do before to get anything to help!!
      Sorry to say this is not what's going to help out anyone feel like the BP Team-Kixeye what's anyone to stay other then to do what was (If we wanted or felt like we Needed) not to feel like we Have to do everything in game to get reworded.. The more thing's keep adding up here are more to where we have to do everything to get anything to help us. Not a good Call!!

    Don't know what to tell yea.  MODs had no input on this.  If you don't want to do the campaign, then don't and your R&D stops at 11.  Its your choice.  I have already done Snowfall so that part is done already for me.

    Just throwing it out there. None of this is actually MANDATORY. It's a side objective to give you rewards for something you already do. Practically until step 12 you get rewarded for playing normally. Don't understand why you are complaining. But in short, if you simply don't want to do it. Then don't do it. You aren't being forced to do anything. But if you want extra perks, you gotta put in extra seat time. There is nothing free in this world except for parental love, but even at that end they had to put up with you. So no, I guess nothing is free.

    Kixeye,you people really think your players are that stupid ? LESS maintenance,less cost, less repair,less build? More uranium,more damage,more time doing chores. Where's the improvement? Long term don't make it!YOU  ,WE,NEED FIXES NOW, not more and more repair time! 90% of people in this game want to use there fleets,not repair them for a day.You make your money on ship builds and refits. Nobody plays repairing fleets! Buy repairs? I don't think so . You guys need to rethink the concept of playing a game first and make money second. More people building and refitting ships out weighs repairing ships in docks doing nothing! We are not rolling in dough to spend 5 bucks a day just to play , but are willing to spend cash to build for the long run. I would rather make pennies a day, than nothing at all. THINK about long term, not quick cash!!!

    But you're wrong.  All this 'optional' stuff becomes mandatory if you want to compete.  Ex: Uranium  It's supposed to be optional (only Kixeye could ever say THAT with a straight face.)

    That's your choice to compete right? I choose to play this leisurely not minding a care. I mean you can try and turn this into a Hardcore game like Call of Duty/Halo/Battlefield etc. But remember that's your choice. If you choose to be competitive, you better ride that decision. 
    So in conclusion, I am still right because you choose to compete with others and therefore force it upon yourself to make it mandatory. That's some crazy psychoanalysis right there. - Sike I barely went into how or why. But what remains the fact is that it is YOUR CHOICE to compete therefore if you compete you CAN FORCE yourself to compete. But like I said earlier, it is NOT MANDATORY because that is a personal decision.
