    Ever notice the reload times or a motar 7 seconds, now a motars DMG/s has been so jacked as there is literally no time between launch and hit, and no ship can get out of the way of splash dmg of some motars.

    Thud 4 is 3.5 seconds reload
    Missile is 6-7 second reload

    which resultantly leaves motars as highest DMG/Second with no drawbacks

    agree with rascal. And as your next update Kixeye will be putting in new buildings. ie. Western Unions, Money Grams, and Ace Cash Express where you can get a FB credit loan for your car title.

    That was 2 salvo of 2 ships even if the person had thud 4's with HB 3 they would have died... unless he would have spread his fleet to avoid the splash, but still dmg/s on motars like that is immense especially at * level status

    1 ship with 2 salvos would have been the same result

    Shockwaves dont do **** for damage against lvl 8 Big Ship or lvl 9 Salvs at all, Kix thought it be great to give those ships AB armor it seems. I think its funny how they plan there money making months. Day before raid, after everyone gets fleets set up and learns strats to take down salvs, they go and change them up before instead of after the Raid. Gotta love Kix, Personally change everything back to like a Month ago before 2nd raid imo. Change Salv spawns to way they were before. lvl 7s are lvl 30 n up and 8s lvl 35 n up. just lower Fleet lvl on salvs down 1 notch so that 7s drop tier 3 weapons.

    Will The "New And Improved" Shockwave Mortars Still Fire Over Walls Now ? That's The One Advantage To Using Mortars For Hitting Bases As They Fire Over Walls Not Into Them Like Cannons and Missles Don't Do Enough Damage IMHO To Be Useful for a base fleet (Other Than t3 drac weaponry which is not easy to get)

    This one also went from 5% to 20%. These would make Sents useless completely with 2 of these on a ship x 5. just roll in and never take any damage lmao

    You'd need a hell of a ship to hold FIVE of those :P

    Naughty as f**k that is! They should test all this **** before they release it. When people invest time and money in getting something they dont want to find out a week later thats its not what they thought it was at all cos its been changed on a whim. Get things right when you release them! I mean Christ you've played with every weapon so much that in fact its now the first weapon that you get as a noob (thud) that is the best! Cmon!

    Kixeye is making a big mistake, just like bank of america charging for debt cards it will be a huge disaster for this company tomorrow when the rest of the player wake up and find out what they did.

    Not 1 ship holding 5. 2 per ship x 5 ships. or 10 tota Siege Rockets in on 1 fleet. What more would u need. Just 2 per ship gives you 100% with RA3. But i double checked, you can only do 3 Ships like this so 6 Siege rockets, and 2 lighter wieght or 1 Siege Rocket and Ra3 with shockwaves and just leave those behind or way behind in tail.

    Hmmm dear Kixeye I will happily admit I brought Shockwave L after finding the first part as I really wanted them. Can I now have my money back as theyre not the same as the ones the Drac have?

    They are the same, Refresh your game or something. My shockwaves are acting like thuds. Yours should be too.

    Oh ok yeah I see now they have changed how ours work too, ok so the product I brought is no longer behaving in the way I paid for it to do. If my TV stopped working the way it was supposed to Id take it back. So again I wonder hmmm can I have a refund?

    Good Job i've fitted out my wolfs with shockwaves for this raid, those level 6 salvages are gonna sink now. Underhand tactic of kixeye to make changes like this though for the raid, this will more than annoy most of the players in the game, not really good busness sense I would say.

    Yes Kixeye has changes to the game, and to be honest, I am glad they have made the salvages harder, Lv 8 should not be hit by lv 22 players and win because they have subs.

    Most people seem to have a very short term memory, cause in a recent news update "Existing Blueprints are due for an upgrade to make them stronger vs Forsaken tech." Its not like kixeye didnt warn us about it.
    If playing Battle Pirates taught me anything, it's:

    You can please some people most of the time, and you can please most people some of the time, but you will never, ever be able to keep those bitchy little whiners who inhabit yours forums from having a cry about every single thing you ever do (or don't do).

    *In my best old man voice* Kids these days have no idea how easy they have it. All these new fangled gadgets and no idea how to use it.
