The year’s most yo ho holly jolly holiday starts Wednesday, December 9th! Log in starting at 12 AM PST and for each of the 12 Days of KIXMAS to receive your FREE Battle Pirates goodies. What’s in store? We don’t want to ruin the surprise, but let’s just say you’ve all been very good pirates this year. (Make sure you have some dock space cleared out, so you won't run into capacity issues on items.)
We could all use a bit of cheer, and this year is going to be EXTRA special. Don’t miss out -- these gifts are here for a good time, not for a long time.
Due to continued feedback about the speed of the Iconoclast Depth Charge projectile, we have increased the projectile speed from 50-100. Stat block below, thanks!
