    Looking at the Players online average, another 4k people dropped. Yes this is a direct reflection on the the state of the game, not a troll.

    Well I noticed that DR stated that 12/22 was the last game update of the year, so I guess they decided to squander their 3 months. Player number is about to drop some more.

    It,s about time you put out better base defense weapons to counter the newer weapons you have out for fleet,s.Your build time and research are way to long.And the Uranium should be on rever fleets as well.Some of us have been playing this game for years and spending coins here and there.What took us untill around level 50s to get some of the weapons and ships you can now get around leveal 30.Give us a break on the coast of you coins I would spend more but your price is too high for the amount of coins you give per dollar.I mean it is just a game.That freezes up glitches I cant count how many fleets i lost due those 2 major problem,s

    Hey, maybe a premium BP account entitles you not to have your turrets and ships nerfed after spending money building them? 
    That will be for the regular non coiners ya know!

    Well.. DONT ask for good base def. weapons, if you take/build any of the recent 2, you will end up burned bad.
    Drac. coaxial's are worse than the stock version - utterly useless.
    Limited cannon, is a non-trackable weapon, so it cannot hit anything. With 200 range, any ships have moved out of range, before it hits.

    Both weapons take more than 10 days to build - and KIX change the blueprint's if there's any sligth risk, that the basedefence weapon actually work.

    build times and repair times need to be cut by 50% to be able to play this game properly.... but knowing kixeye they only gonna lower it by 2% and say ya we lowered it but we dont give a dam about you players we just want your money.... but news flash ya keep pissing on us soon there wont be any of us left to piss on and you are left with a company that is broke and filing for bankruptcy  when it could all have been prevented by actually being fair with your players and not milking them dry....

    FM 150mill T5...good luck...this wish will coming faster as a reality as lower shipbuilding/repairingtimes.

    No forms of co-op or retreat in raidtargets: If you HAVE to kill your fleet that you can send in an other fleet - or the target will get an reset - thats the gravestone for the raids.

    In the recent raidtargets, you can pick up some enemyships with ships witch have the best damagedefense against them...if you are fast enough, you can escape with retreat...and you can send in an other fleet. That is called "strategy". With your suggestion, there is only place for "tactic"...its only good for the big whales, which can afford to have the best fleets. On the other hand, it will force the weak pirates to use only zombiefleets.

    Both ideas are only for the "big" pirates with all toys.

    (Sarcasm on) My suggestion: No retreat for only the A-set in the raids...so you will get a lot of new friends with the right stuff :) (Sarcasm off)

    Seriously: WHY? Do you dont have the feeling to be comfortable with the recent "entertainment"? Are you bored? Nothing to do in the real life?

    Peeps like you are the reason, that the game is where it is now. And now you want it "hardcore" with a no retreat ability in the raidtargets
    and a 150mill T5 ? Dont whine if your wishes come true...

    I am playing for fun. So it doesn´t hurt me.
    Come on man... You HAD to realize I was just being sarcastic and saying random crap for **** and giggles. I didn't mean any of that. It was to make the point that my ridiculous suggestions would blend in with all the other laughable stuff suggested here.

    Not serious, purely satirical.
    unfortunately they implememnt the insane stuff

    After seeing all the items listed as NEW and the changes coming and here now, it seams kix IS doing something, like it or not, if you dont like it fine but stop acting like a baby about it, if you do like it then go for it , i coin a lot less than the big guys and being on a fixed income there is no way to change that so i HAVE to live with everything i CAN do and move forward no matter what, but to see players who CAN coin at times and still cry is just so over the top it is just nuts, I like the game so i take what they give and work with it, some seam silly and dumb but i still work with it no matter, (just take a minute and look at what is there and find ways to make it work for) you make what you have work it is that simple it takes the stress away for the most part) my high BP is an issue so i learned how to do that outside the game but am able to apply it here and it works make me not send in complaints about stupid stuff , good luck to all and have a very Marry Christmas and a Happy new Year to all

    I think Kix messed up royally back when they limited raids to level and had no co-op. IMO many high level non-coiners couldn't do seige. It took me entire raid to get through one complete seige mission.  I have been going backwards for quite some time.By moving some key items to Tier 3 I can finally hopefully make some progress again; that means I will be sticking around. I really didn't even try last raid, I was going drop anchor on a deserted island and get back into the bottle.

    If they put out defence weapons that allow a below average player to keep whales out, who do the below average players get to attack?

    If only we could get off this Kixeye merry go round. The issue of lower players not getting access 34 and 40 Military has been an issue as far back as I can remember. I think its a calculated strategy towards closing the game. If this is not so then my mind boggles. It must be indeed true Kixeye is run by total morons and therefore need to stop the inbreeding immediately.

    they have been needing to change the spawn mechanics for years because basing it on player level it just not working.

    I'm on record both in the forum and to support stating that the player level system isn't fit for purpose.

    My latest solution was for them to introduce a dynamic player level, so that new power tech gets more experience and old tech gets next to none. Essentially making experience follow the power curve that exists in game. Ultimately this would mean a reduction in level for most players and those that have been off for a long time would essential come back and be a lower level.

    However it's a tough pill for kix to swallow as it would mean a lot less targets for the few top coiners to hit. Meaning they would actually have to make the game more fair... Something they have started with the changes mentioned here. However they have so far only started the job of fixing as lot of the issues. More work needs to be done.

    So my rating of the game has gone from a c+ to a b-, an improvement but more work is needed to get the game back to an a* game.
    It's only a game if it's free. If you pay it's a hobby and it's a gamble!
    In real life if you throw money at a game (mid game) it's called bribery and it's classed as cheating!

    Interesting how a lot of 'computer games' companies have built their company (business model) around cheating!

    We live for the one we die for the one!

    This game is over so just crack on and make Battle Pirates 2, and give players 10% of the money they have spent back in the form of new credits for Battle Pirates 2. 

    And learn for the mistakes you have made in this game.

    Yep, you are right.  this game has been about making the whales happy.  If the whales can't easily smash 10 bases in a row (seen it happen) then they won't spend.

    This video is a perfect description of what Kix is doing


    Which is why the industry leader of 2010-2102 is the joke of 2015-2106. 
    Kixeye heads into 2016 targeting the mobile market, an area they have no experience or idea in, unless you count the failed BYMU.
    The mobile app market thrives in micro transactions.  No doubt Kixeye will try to bring their pay to win business model once again into
    WCRA an hope for the best.  They badly missed that boat and are attempting to launch their patched up dingy into that well established sea.

    Good luck with that, won't be touching WCRA lol.
