CONTENT CHANGES


While we continue to work hard on changes and improvements to HTML5 changes, we have made some major improvements over the past couple of weeks - namely to memory and overall functionality. 


This week, we’re taking the next step toward transitioning. Although we previously defaulted many pirates over to HTML5, if you previously opted-out, you would have remained on Flash.


As of the 10.17 Update, we will be switching everyone over to HTML5 by DEFAULT. Yes, you can still return to Flash manually. But we’re hoping that this means we are one step closer to making the switch full-time. 


Please continue filing bug tickets, and we look forward to taking this next step with you. As always, thank you for playing Battle Pirates. 


Addition: As mentioned, we postponed the release of the Gatekeeper to Bounty. The Rules of Engagement have been postponed until May. Keep an eye out for a post later today with more info on the upcoming PvP changes.
