Pretty much the people that pay are the ones that are able to get the event ships. How many of you are able to run up 12 million points or more and not pay a single dime repairing a ship? Doesn't matter how much or how hard I try I still end up having to spend cash to get into the top 10 in these events. Should take the coin out the events and see what kind of competition we really have in this game for those weekends. Of course I don't see that happening but it would level the playing field for others that don't have the money to spend on repairs and other nonsense.

    These threads really need to stop. It's those of that coin that allow you to play for free. We are rewarded for coining, and you are rewarded with a game that you can continue playing for free.
    Allow me to summarize: The coiners allow you to play for free, and there are plenty of non-coiners that win the event-only ships.

    Love these newbies who think everything won is bought...plenty of people have won the events that did not spend money or very little on the events. I won a dread with only 3M points, no money spent cause the sector I was in did not really participate in the raid.

    This exact topic has been discussed many times already. Allow me to summarize: The coiners allow you to play for free, and there are plenty of non-coiners that win the event-only ships.

    i know there a lot of coiner, the make money from the coiner and non-coiner do have get it as well. u should disagree with it, if u get them mad about it they might just change it to a pay game only. the game is fun i have not coin any yet. the event ships r nice and u always have a choice u can try winning it with out coining or u can join them and try get it with coining. it our choice not they're problem if u don't want to coin

    Bare in mind that the coiners would still have the advantage over the non coiners if they stopped alling coin repairsd for an event. How many ships capable of helping to win an event do you think a heavy coiner will have sat in their dock? What you are suggesting would actually hurt the players that only coin for the events more than the heavy coiners.

    At the end of the day its not compulsory to spend on this game, if it gets to the point where people decide there is no advantage to coining guess what, they stop spending and the game closes, so be thankful they have these events to encourage people to spend.

    Okay let me spell it out for you that are whining here.

    First off coin does not make up for skill. There are some that coin that have skillz and there are those that do not coin that have skillz. Those that have chosen to coin are what makes the game free for everyone else. I USED to coin. I MAY coin in the future but not now.

    As for the events. Stop whining and try to win it on your own skillz. I have seen people that have not had the large ships win raids in sectors. I saw one guy win an HH with JUST BB's and skill.

    I won the Dread in my sector and I did not coin. It's all about knowing what your skillz are and working with that and your ship builds and building smart builds of ships. If you build crap then yes you are going to be down a long time for repairs.

    I've seen SO MANY people build crap ships and whine. One example of this is them NOT reading the descriptions and understanding what those mean. IE that when it says +10% weapon weight that applied to ALL the weapons on the ship not just ballistic, missile, rockets etc.

    If you play stupid then that is your fault.

    For those of you that like to keep reminding that people who pay help to keep the game free...go get a life. I do spend money and i do understand the dynamics of what the paying customer does for the game. I appreciate the answers from the people that just respond to the statement and don't get into name calling. I'm really glad someone can actually win in the tournaments without spending a dime on ship repairs it helps me to understand I need to spend more time working with the skills for the ships. Thanks to all those that just posted an adult response to a discussion topic.

    So, I see that square base, roll up and flatten it. Suddenly there's sector police everywhere, the noob is crying on coms and everyone's looking at me like I'm the bad guy? Shoulda built a better base. I'm also not allowed back in that neighborhood.

    Wow you are **** ignorant did you read what SWAG wrote to you? With out coining it wouldn't be a game called Battle Pirates, you act like a spoiled child that get something for free and isn't happy with it and want more. "Sigh" try use common sense next time.
