    Congrats Kixeye.   You have outdone yourself once more.    You have cranked up the damage so high that now no one wants to play it.

    CMGhillie - pass it up....take this Bounty and shove it.  4 fleets, hours for repairs, to kill a single 92 or 96.  NOT worth the time, repairs, crashes, trouble.  KEEP your new hull, I'll do just fine without it.

    Virtually un-killable new ships in the targets are the problem, since we MUST kill a target 100% to get the points.

    CM_Ghillie-- any chance you can add Explosive Force and Radioactive Force to the Bounty Prize Store being as these are conqueror equipped specials and haven't been in a bounty event in forever.   Thank you so much.

    This game is rapidly dying.

    Dear Kix,  Please add employee bases that are a bit easier on pve players.  This is incredibly tough for many of us.  signed, a pve player in a pvp world.

    Visually it says debuff per projectile is buffed by 3x. Does this also means having 3 ships won't help to gain stacks faster.

    This is an insult to player's intelligence.

    The Employee Base Gatekeepers strongly resemble the initial release hulls. Before the series of nerfing began. The PvP guard strongly resembles the way those hulls used to perform. They seem to repair quicker, and seem to repair more items too. Perhaps this is just an oversight. Perhaps it's simply well designed targets. Perhaps someone can look into this.

    This basically means one ship will do the job of three in respect to deflection effect.
    Maybe some people did not want to build and replace three hulls in their guard.

    I think you need to re-read the changes. The thrower was BUFFED and now removes deflection about 3 times faster than it did before.

    It's been made STRONGER, not weaker.

    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...

    Wow thank God I got to see that new piece of crap hull in action! The only thing good it does is die! Glad I didn't buy gold and do bounty. Hopefully the word will get out how your trying to screw us!!

    Nope. We actually buffed the Forgefire based (in part) on some feedback we received. Cheers! :)

    Ghillie - Why are there no Merciless Mutineer Upgrade tokens and no Merciless Mutineer Upgrade Kits in the Mutineer on the Bounty Campaign?
    This TLC is an exact rerun of the last time we had it. When that happened, the flag wasn't even in-game yet.

    In fact, recent history shows us that there haven't been flagship tokens or kits in these TLCs. Zealot didn't have it, Punisher MK2 didn't have it, Riot didn't have it.

    I think we'll need to wait until Pillage to get more of those, and we may not even get any upgrade tokens for the flagship :(
    Thanks, Derpy. These items will be available elsewhere, but the campaign is a re-run of when it was first released. I can mention that folks are asking for these items (though I know it's been brought up before). Thanks!

    This means that you reach maximum deflections 3x faster now than before.

    Having 2 ships firing will allow you to reach maximum deflections twice as fast as one ship firing, but the maximum debuff is still the same. This was true for the first day, and is even true now.

    IMO the wording at the top of the game should have said something more along the lines "Pirates, we have buffed the Forgefire Thrower. It will reach maximum deflection reductions 3x faster"

    It's definitely on our radar - we have some other priority fixes up first. I'll include the fix in the Update Notes if/when it goes out. Thanks :)

    Thanks Lady Cat. I know some of the bases were a bit spicy this time around. Hopefully my base will be up by next Bounty and I'll try to take it easy on you folks. ;)

    The problem with Bounty is when you get bubbled after 4 hours the portals, towers and OP are at half damage.  So, it's easier to kill.  Not going to coin base repairs, so I'll just site here and stew.   Grumble grumble. %$%^*

    Perhaps you should talk to the folks there and stop putting in hulls and stuff that 99.9% of us don't have yet.  Players base shouldn't have an advantage over another play of similar rank.

    Yes, the Piranha is overpowered and serves WH to its babies for breakfast. The HS is a nice appetiser for afternoon tea :) so they thank you for the number increase to 5
    It did not make it to the end of bounty, just waited till I had my third one built and nerfed it during
