Captains, the 10.27 Update is deploying Tuesday, June 30th at ~9:00 PM PDT. 


The update includes support for July Pillage and two campaigns: Son of Poseidon and Cry Havoc. We are also adding some ongoing campaigns to help new Captains catch up on tech. (Note: These will be available on an ongoing basis, but can only be completed once.) 


Read on for more details! 


Reminders: 



CONTENT CHANGES

NEW PIRATE CAMPAIGNS - IMPROVING YOUR EXPERIENCE 

After the update, new Pirates will find it even more fun to play, and current Captains will have even more reason to invite friends to join the fray! 


We know there’s a long runway from picking up the game to catching up to Outpost 12 and Tier 9 content. So we are introducing some ongoing, single-completion campaigns to help pirates dive into battle right away. 


To start, all new and existing players receive: 


  • An updated base at Outpost 11. 

  • Access to the “Beginners Treasure Trove” Campaign, which rewards:

    • A full fleet of Praetorians + Flagship (not upgraded) 

    • A range of base specials and turrets to build up their defenses.


With their Praetorian fleet players will be able to earn chests from the FM containing fleets from each silo of the game, including Dragoons, Silverfish, and Saturns. Then using those fleets, players will be able to complete the following campaigns to earn some great prizes:

  • Introduction to Assault

  • Introduction to Siege

  • Introduction to Skirmish


In addition to familiarizing players with Battle Pirates, these campaigns will help everyone get caught up on important content. 

For more details, visit the NEW CAMPAIGNS post on the forum (posting by EOD tomorrow), or try the campaigns out in-game after the 10.27 Update! 


MEDAL DUMPING

Firstly, I (CM Ghillie) want to apologize for not communicating something out sooner. I try not to message anything out unless I have more concrete details, but in this case a small “we’re working on it” announcement might not have gone amiss.


The team has been working on a short-term solution to the medal dumping issue. This solution is intended to maximize the amount of effort it takes to dump medals and minimize the ability to drain a pirate’s medals, especially those who are legitimately trying to climb the leaderboard. (Note: This does not mean a long-term solution is off the table, but we also recognize the need for more urgent action.) 


Stay tuned for further details - and thank you for your patience.
