    Ahoy Pirates, 


    We’re trying something new to make it even easier to hear from you on the forums. As of today, there will be a weekly Q&A/Discussion post where you are welcome and encouraged to share your questions, ideas, and feedback about Battle Pirates that week. This, more than any other post on the forums, is your primary vehicle for discussion directly with the community team.


    We will be removing the weekly release notes discussion and all other event-related discussion posts to keep everything in one centralized place. This will help us to better capture and consider your feedback on a week-to-week basis. It will also create a less cluttered forum-reading experience. 


    If you have any questions, please post them below. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. 


    Cheers,


    CM Ghillie



    You really think this is easier to use. 29 pages & counting on god knows how many subjects. Looks like you just want to loose negaitive feedback to me.  
    Subject: New Discussion Page is unreadable, unhelpfull & unwanted

    Subject" Base Parts Hull for lower levels

    Question: Will there be any hulls that us lower level players can get our hands on to get base parts with? The Ironclad/Cannoneer/ProtoCent are useless in the 35 targets for base parts, they don't have enough punch  even with bigger guns onboard...

    Bucc or Hydra in the FM maybe?
    Have you tried those hulls on expeditions?
    & agreed, don't like the new targets one little bit
    Only put 2in the fleet as dock isn't high enough and the damage output is too low compared to what the buck or hydra can put out (plus there defences)

    in reguards to the forsaken mission i have a quick question. im from the beta time and still playing, but for the weekly fm prize collection, i am a bit confused why i need to collect tech that will never be used and seems to to have an unlimited amount that can be collected just to get the chest for that lvl prize.  i have already accepted the at i need to collect this bs tech i wont use to get to the main prize. when will that be changed for players that need rather than players that dont need.  just sayin', if not hyper 30, msds3, or hyper 30, all are not needed, and what is the other hyper 30, again not needed for my lvl or my play time since alpha.  other than wasting my points on a prize i will never use each week, why make a lvl 130+ player collect that bullchit

    Subject: order of weekly pve/pvp events

    With the introduction of shipwreck, the predictable monthly pattern is PVP (shipwreck), PVP (bounty), PVE (pillage), and PVE (raid). Anyway that pattern can rotate evenly to reflect PVP, PVE, PVP, PVE?

    The benefit for the PVE players with low or no PVP priority is a break between the PVP event weeks.

    If Bounty is moved to the first weekend after a raid, the PVE players could maximize the separate repair ques: the conqueror/defender que for the bounty event and the regular repair que for vxp weekend, TLC's, and the fm with typically the largest amount of new content.

    Benefit for both PVP/PVE is the availability of newer PVE content early with pillage occurring a week earlier.

    Most likely will be. Since the Raid is the next week. They probably just forgot it on the calendar in the FM List for the month.

    Subject:  New tech time reduction

    Question/Comment:

    So we have already seen the implementation of Silverfish tech having reduced times compared to say older tech. My question is when or if the old tech will be modified to fit the reduction times that we have in place for the future? 
    No plan for it at this time, but I'll update the community if we hear differently in the near future.

    Subject: Ship build tokens
    Would kixeye ever consider converting any of the ship build tokens to ships like the punishers monos centurions since someone us players have no use for since those ships are out of date and it might help us build up fleets for current raids and or wklys.
    This isn't our standard practice, and there are no current plans to change it on our end. That being said, if you're looking for something specific, you can also DM me and we can chat about how you can best approach it. I'll try to help however I can.

    Subject: Fleet slots

    Question: Is there any plans to give us a third row of fleet slots?

    Comment: We currently have 16 slots. One of which is base defence. One of which is taken up by expeditions (assuming you do them). One for base hitting. One for shipwrecks. This leaves us with 12. Might sound a lot but there is currently so much going on in the game that we have to keep swapping fleets out for different tasks.

    Maybe the third row could be for PvP hulls only.

    No current timeline for this, but something we are considering based on community feedback. This sort of ask can take a bit of time with UI, but it's not off the table.

    OK, I read the August CM diary

    I saw top target? is a CO OP target, This I suppose is fine if it doesn't follow down the same line SWs went down, where points were awarded to alliance members?

    The other big thing is:- we know many prizes now are limited shards, awarded with top targets. I am worried that the needed shards may be limited to this target? yet again giving larger alliances a massive advantage?

    Please do not tell me I can hit them with anyone, and so earn these prizes. I got this far in the game doing my own thing, if I have to rely on someone else, I don't want to know...just my 2 pence worth
