There is currently no way for a 3rd party to view a battle in progress.
We will be implementing a feature that allows any player to view a Fleet VS Fleet or Fleet VS Base battle. Any player can use the mouse to click on a battle and view the battle as a spectator only (cannot participate in battle). Spectators will not be able to view submerged submarines.
There will also a feature that announces when battles are taking place near your base in the Comm (chat window). This feature can be easily disabled if you do not want to receive battle notifications.
As Battle Pirates is a Massively Multiplayer Online game, we feel this will greatly enhance the effect of being an open-world game. The game has a strong emphasis on competition, so it only makes sense to grant anyone the ability to view players competing with each other.

Don't like the idea of both...
1st you attack a base, you have gangsters waiting for you all the time...
2nd they watch you attack a base and watch the timer, so they can jump you...
3rd All those sucky bases will become stronger since you are letting every **** and harry look at base attacks. They will be changing there base after watching a Seige Mortar fleet get stopped... Bad Idea.... These Players need to go on these forums and seach or come up with there own base desings by trial and error!!! What happen to hard work... I have been attacked by several lvl 32-35 players... I don't want anybody copying my base.... Only my good friends I will give help to..
4th Bring back FOG Of War.. This will cut down on and **** and harry viewing base attacks from other sectors or in....
5th You are making this game to easy for all other players who want a free ride.. COME On REALLY!!!!!
6th GET Real.. You want everyone in this game to play the same... Same Ships, Same Base Designs. Same Tactics.. You are Giving Every Player a freeeeeeee Ticket.....
7th Guess You guys don't care!!! You are destroying this Game....
8th.. Scap this Idea---
9th Install on the Battle Log, a way to view your Base when its attacked.... Thats All, Players will learn from that and only that...
10th.. Do real Pirates annouce when they attack anyone, tell who they attack and what they bring to the attack.. Don't think so!!!

All these changes sound great but I feel they are just notes taken from their last 420 smoking session. They forgot to mention the most important detail.... WHEN?????
They are great ideas but I hope it happens a whole lot faster than attacking Draconian bases!

agreed... Just for giggles, if someone whines, SWAG should be able to turn their fleets into floating sausages for 24 hours.

If your base is there and I need resources, I'm a pirate, need I say more?

I can see the enjoyment in this feature but I think that it should only apply to FvF battles as it's giving people a free look at your base set up before they actually try it, part of the fun is attacking a new base and not knowing where to go in, what it looks like, where the goodies are situated and how stacked the warehouses are.Now all you gotta do is wait for someone else to do the work for you and see how well they do and what set up you have.
In addition this also makes it even harder for the attacker to escape being ninja'd when coming out, it's already hard enough what with the annoying pop up that you have to close before moving, now you get the added annoyance of other people seeing how long you have left/ how long till you kill the OP and can jump you easier.

KIXEYE... I love this idea but... is this game ever going to get back to the way it was before the last raid the lag and the glitches are killing me. I really like playing this game and the new features seem cool (EXCEPT THE SUB REPAIR TIME CHANGE) but if they are just going to make this frick'n game run slower, freeze up and boot me out then leave it alone and stop "improving" it untill you can do it without screwing up everyday game play. And for the love of sweet baby jesus don't tell me to empty my cache or upgrade my flash... did it, done it, continue to do it regularly not much help if any.
You guys are making that world of tanks game look better and better with every fleet i lose to glitches. Especially since I won't be able to quick fix my subs anymore... soon... sometime in the future... maybe... after more testing... you think...
If I can't play this game what is the point in all these cool features i can't use, fix it please or unfix whatever you thought you fixed that caused all this. If not the same people that made world of tanks will be rolling out 2 new games this year world of war planes and world of battleships.
