    No, as mentioned the release notes and other updates will appear on our support page.

    Peter: You're missing a couple of points: Not everyone wants Discord on their systems for whatever reason. Not everyone is tech-savvy. Just ignore those points, why don't you.? Doesn't fit the company narrative, I get it.
    Actually if you read the F.A.Q you'll notice I explicitly mention you don't need to install Discord on your system. You can access it from the browser if you prefer. As to requiring tech-savvy, if you were able to create an account on www.kixeye.com to post on the forums then you won't have trouble creating an account on Discord.
    I never understood why we had to go to an outside source for game info to start with, and now this just compounds that thought.

    Might as well get rid of the full forums homepage here because there is absolutely no reason for it now.


    I can get on the discord page with no issues and navigate it just fine. But I just don't get it.

    Why is it so much better than getting the info right here on the games own site ? 

    Because I don't see it.

    PLEASE.....explain it and make it make sense to me......if you can.
    As mentioned by @MillionDlrBil these forums are also technically provided by an outside source. As previously mentioned, unifying the two makes it easier for players who want to interact with both, provides better features for the forums, and makes it easier for us to communicate with players.

    I don't like discord, and do not want to be forced to use it in order to be able to stay up to date.
    That's fine. All the relevant information you need will still be posted on our support page instead.

    tried says my email is already used how I only have one email..  How can Discord and Kix be not affiliated when neither can work as described?
    You can probably reclaim your account then. Go to https://discord.com/login, enter your email, and click the "Forgot your password" button.

    They're different systems. Lucky creating an account is trivial!
    The only thought that went into this idea is we can save money by not hosting our own servers lets do it. No regard for players having to create a second account for this game on a platform that is widely disliked. The wide reaching changes made by this company on a regular basis are foolish because you anger large groups of the player base. The competition for a gamers time is fierce so it is easy to find another game with a different company to spend our time and money on. At some point kixeye must begin to take what we players want into account before there are none of us left.
    Actually this is not true. We have been considering for some time this change, however because we recognised that forums and discussion rooms enable different forms of communication we had kept both separate. Now that Discord supports forums it makes sense to unify them.

    I can't get onto discord.  It keeps telling me my email account is already registered and I cant go any further.  It's the only email I have so I'm locked out.

    You can always make a new email account for Discord there are MANY free email services out there.

    I don't use discord. I really like how forum is set up. Why the F are you getting rid of forum. I already play less and buy less coin. Just another reason to quit playing. You already make us get the gambit by having insane high fm prize cost, and the only target the brutes get is worth a laughing low amount of points.

    Don't forget about outlook, AOL (if people still use that dinosaur), iCloud, ProtonMail, Zoho, Yandex, Titan for your business needs.  GMX global mail exchange in German or an International option, 10 Minute Mail where your emails self destruct-- grenade/C4 plastique/ or Semtex not included by Mattel, Tutanoa, Mail.com or Hubspot for all your marketing needs.

    So far I think this one topic has the most CMs or Game Team people replying to questions by some of us ever.  Now only if they'd repair or recode those things needing serious updates the game would be more enjoyable for many and not just the whales or those needing their egos caressed daily.

    They'll likely say its where things are heading, better usage there etc etc etc.

    What it really is, when comms are bad (not that they're good anyway) they now have a third party that can be blamed.

    If only 5 messages and a closed forum was the answer to all bugs, it would be such a simpler time.

    I believe both us mods and Peter have explained the benefits of Discord just in this thread alone. 

    What trouble are you having with logging in? It shouldn't take any more than signing in with your created account and clicking on the server you wish to visit once you're on there. If you've not used it before you will need to create an account, and if you have tried previously but have lost your details or account you can reclaim it by clicking the "forgot your password" section. You can simply click the invitation in my Signature to gain easy access to the Discord server.

    This forum is already a 3rd party. . .  Combining Forums to Discord actually takes one out of the equation.

    To be really honest, I don't want to sign into another browser AND site to find information I should be able to find on the game browser.

    Sometimes I'm reading stuff here, I can go to the game, take a screenshot, clean it up on Paint, then quickly post it in Forums without messing around on another tab.

    If I'm too long on another tab, the game will want refreshing

    Honestly, this is the last for me. You lied about the 2 Tier 11 guard hulls (& the 1st was absolute TRASH) you pulled out this Tier 11.5 guard hull in the hopes of keeping people around "We didn't lie, see, we gave you the Komodo" but the T11 Conq upgrades are done, as soon as folks stop hitting bases because of the Komodo, you'll introduce the T12 Conq season.

    Stop treating people like idiots with fat wallets. You wonder why the player base is what it is? It's because of that.

    Good luck growing the player base beyond returning players. You're going to need it.

    Lastly, I think you'll find a few other players are thinking the same way I am.

    "Players first" died when Kix sold out to Stillfort.

    Discord? Really kix, you are moving from a bad forum system to and even worse "Forum"? I've seen a lot of bonehead moves by kix in the 12 years I have played but this is right up there with the horrible graphics update which lasted what, 1 day! Your existing Discord Channel for chatting is a mess, I can just imagine what the "Forum" will look like.

    No thanks. I'm no luddite (ex programmer and system builder), but Discord, Twitter and the like aren't comm's platforms I enjoy using.

    Have enjoyed reading the forums over the years, and think this is a bad move. But then maybe the majority love Discord - best of luck.
    No chance of getting anywhere now. Most friends have left the game thanks to changes, and given the crazy chores now I'll doubtless join them.

    hated discord at first. went back later when stuff allegedly got better on there. no complaints now it has been organised a tad better. it is a lot more useful than before and pretty much self explanatory, with plenty of help. the bs gets stopped a lot sooner for example. the advice needed and any questions get a close to instant response. why not give it a try.
    you keep whining like me but we are still here, i love broken pixels, how about you

    Then you could use the forums section and not the live chat section below.

    Guess someone has to be blunt to both the team and the Moderators on why people do not want this move and since it obvious they are keen on pushing the company agenda/tape.

    People DO NOT WANT TO CREATE an account on discord because of how account information is being used by platform like that(including Twitter,Facebook, and many others).

    The biggest advantage of the kixeye site is that (to the best of my knowledge) your account information isn't being sold to marketing company to bombard your email with all the crap advertisement that comes your way. The only advertisement you get is from KIXEYE.

    That is WHY MANY do not want to be on big platforms like discord. 

    Yes some may hate the set up, or the lag of the AP, etc, but in reality, they do not want to have to register to another platfrom that bombard them with advertisements from many other company that will flood there email account with hundreds of SPAM emails.

    This move is beneficial to the team/mods and the company and not to the players. This will help the team (which from what i understand as been quite reduced as of late with many layoff in many department) and the mod better manage forum with fewer resources. And since every move/change/decision is contested by angry players (and from what i hear staff as well, well those that remain), they are getting flooded with angry post.

    For me, this move is a small gain for the company/team, and a HUGE lost for the players (well those that remain). There is no WIN-WIN to this move, it is a WIN-LOSE or LOSE_LOSE scenario for them.

    Making this move may allow them to manage there remaining games (since from what i read they wont be making any new ones), but it may lose them a SIGNIFICANT amount of players who wont be happy with this move and who will (for what ever personal reason) not create an account on Discord, not for this game or ANY other games. Trust me kixeye isnt the 1st (nor the last) to go the Discord way, and for good business reasons, tho bad ones to players.

    Some said this is just another nail in the coffin for this game.

    Personnaly, looking at how Stillfront has treated this studios since they purchased it, we are WAY past the coffin metaphores. Kixeye games have been put in a coffin since day one, right now what we are seeing is them digging the hole for this studios, aka them trying to max out the revenues to balance off the purchase price, then transfer any valuable resources to there head office or other studios, and then shut the goddam thing off.

    That is basicly what is being hinted in the industry (past and current employees, medias and even competitors of Stillfront).

    HOPE that clears it off.

    Kix are probably getting a cut from the selling of data... :D

    However, trying to look for the silver lining, with the forums being removed from their servers, lag shouldn't be an issue anymore....and  if it is, it clearly isn't our computers that are at fault.

    Guess only time will tell.
    Just be interesting from what people have mentioned, if you have an issue, how is it going to get picked up? If players are talking about BBQ's cars etc etc etc, how would my issue with lag be visible? 
    Your chances of concerns being seen are actually greater on DIscord than they are here as the game team are on Discord daily, whereas these forums rely on us moderators for the most part. 


    Begs the question why the game team are using a 3rd party solution over which they have no ultimate control  rather than the forums which are managed/run in house?
    From Discord's privacy policy;
    "Be aware of the Discord spaces you choose to participate in

    You can always choose what communities to participate in and what information you add to our services. You can choose what messages to send or post, who to engage with (e.g., one or more particular users or a potentially unlimited group of users), what information to include in your profile, whether to connect any third party services to your Discord account, and more. For example, if you share content in public spaces, it may be accessed by anyone. Public content may also be subject to fewer restrictions under your local laws."

    After reading that I still think the forums were better for communication (even tho' the game team disagree and have forced this change on the remaining players).

    Maybe one thing that they don't need to police to strictly.

    Its then Discords "issue" rather than Kixs'

    The forums aren't on Kixeye servers. As has been said several times now, the forums are currently using a 3rd party resource to run and host.

    Why is it so much better than getting the info right here on the games own site ? 

    Because I don't see it.

    PLEASE.....explain it and make it make sense to me......if you can.
    As mentioned by @MillionDlrBil these forums are also technically provided by an outside source. As previously mentioned, unifying the two makes it easier for players who want to interact with both, provides better features for the forums, and makes it easier for us to communicate with players.

    I don't like discord, and do not want to be forced to use it in order to be able to stay up to date.
    That's fine. All the relevant information you need will still be posted on our support page instead.

    tried says my email is already used how I only have one email..  How can Discord and Kix be not affiliated when neither can work as described?
    You can probably reclaim your account then. Go to https://discord.com/login, enter your email, and click the "Forgot your password" button.

    Why do I have to create a new account? Why can't Kixeye roll existing forum accounts over to discord? Sounds like this is living up to the name and creating discord.
    They're different systems. Lucky creating an account is trivial!
    The only thought that went into this idea is we can save money by not hosting our own servers lets do it. No regard for players having to create a second account for this game on a platform that is widely disliked. The wide reaching changes made by this company on a regular basis are foolish because you anger large groups of the player base. The competition for a gamers time is fierce so it is easy to find another game with a different company to spend our time and money on. At some point kixeye must begin to take what we players want into account before there are none of us left.
    Actually this is not true. We have been considering for some time this change, however because we recognised that forums and discussion rooms enable different forms of communication we had kept both separate. Now that Discord supports forums it makes sense to unify them.


    Where is the "support" page located?
    At the top of the Kixeye site where it says "support"

    Alternatively, here is a link to the support page: https://battlepirates.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

    To be really honest, I don't want to sign into another browser AND site to find information I should be able to find on the game browser.

    Sometimes I'm reading stuff here, I can go to the game, take a screenshot, clean it up on Paint, then quickly post it in Forums without messing around on another tab.

    If I'm too long on another tab, the game will want refreshing

    Honestly, this is the last for me. You lied about the 2 Tier 11 guard hulls (& the 1st was absolute TRASH) you pulled out this Tier 11.5 guard hull in the hopes of keeping people around "We didn't lie, see, we gave you the Komodo" but the T11 Conq upgrades are done, as soon as folks stop hitting bases because of the Komodo, you'll introduce the T12 Conq season.

    Stop treating people like idiots with fat wallets. You wonder why the player base is what it is? It's because of that.

    Good luck growing the player base beyond returning players. You're going to need it.

    Lastly, I think you'll find a few other players are thinking the same way I am.

    "Players first" died when Kix sold out to Stillfort.
    You don't need to go anywhere else to see the posts made by Kixeye. Release notes, briefings, etc. They will be posted on the support site and will be accessible either by clicking the support button at the top of the forums, or by either of these links. The only thing that won't be here is the player made discussions.

    Here is a link to the support page: https://battlepirates.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

    Everyone should be Bookmarking the link to the support page, especially if you play on Facebook as it can be a little difficult to find. 

    Again, that link as Temp posted above is: https://battlepirates.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

    This is BS, Discord is a malignant cesspool.

    Why do this? Is what is left of this "community" not toxic enough already?

    WTF!
