    typical response from a lil player (IpityU) suck it up n quit whinnin like a lil puss, ITS A GAME!!!!!!!!!

    YES, it is a game, but unless ALL players have some fun in it, then they will leave and then who will you hit???? You'll have to sit on your **** waiting for the 17 to 22 levels to get to 29 and 30 and how much time will that take????? A month or two, or more? How much fun will YOU have waiting because the littler guys (-5 levels from YOU) said **** IT, I'M OUT'A HERE because it was just A GAME!!!

    I like bubbles, whether they are from my own sector or somewhere else cause' they give me time to res like mad and get my updates started (I'm level 29), but for those that can't res a lot, level 27's and below, THEY are the ones that YOU will have to wait for!!!! SO, have fun sitting in front of your computer staring at the sectors with NOTHING TO DO!!!!!

    I like the new proposed structure as long as we have still have the +5/-5 bracket. There has always been too much disparity at the high levels. There is a HUGE difference between a lvl29 and a lvl34. This will spread things out more and make people compete with people closer to their strength. As to having to wait for lower levels to catch up so you can attack them....well....you could try a totally new idea for a change. Hit someone your level, and actually have to work for those victories.

    Ok, sounds great except anyone below a level 34 (50) can attack me but I can't retaliate against them unless they are withing range?

    If you think that I am going to travel 1 hour to attack a base you are CRAZY!!!! My opinion is you are messing the game up, it is already too time intensive and has stretched my patience with the game to the MAX. Build times and only being able to build 1 ship every 10-18 days is just too crazy. Hell you can't build a fleet before they come out with a new ship to buy. This game after two years is just not that much fun anymore. For those that want to disagree with me, it's my time and money, not yours :p!! I have gone from playing 5-6 hours a day to 1, due to the time it takes to collect resources to build something to the time it takes to build. And no; I don't use the game as a "Social Media" outlet as some do, it is a game that is suppose to be fun to PLAY, not watch the grass grow. lol Just my own personal opinion.

    You started just a bit before me and I do agree with you, I am not a coiner but am sick of these delays and the fact that they change the game constantly. The fun is gone, history and will never be brought back. Isn't it interestiing that this game has the most problems & errors than any other game on FB. But this is proof "If it aint broke don't fix it!"

    P.S. I used to coin, but when the game started loosing interest, its shine, I stopped and also the play hours went down.

    they should just keep the + or - 5 Attack range, And instead of making the next rank twice the XP as the last rank, It Should be 1.5x or 1.75x and just adjust the current ranks based on their current XP that would spread things out a bit without sounding so confusing....

    Just a question on the new leveling, does the skipping of levels at the upper end mean you will jump from say 84 to 87, or will the leveling fill the gaps like 84, 85, 86, 87?
    Well, SINK ME!

    KIXEYE,

    Your ruining the game. You will be giving us less bases to hit and longer travel time. Yeah, there are some cry babies that whine and cry because someone higher attacks their base. Like they don't do it to the ones lower than them. If they don't, they are liars. The game is not broke, so don't fix it. There are several people in the past month that have quit the game because of you screwing it up. We had one in our group quit today because of the new rules and he is a lvl 33. I myself am ready to quit and I have put a lot of money into this game. You are getting greedy and I will not participate in your greed.

    I really had no concern over the levels, or who could hit who. As far as going 2 sectors over - well, I don't have the patience to sit and wait 2 hours just to hit a level 30 or higher. There's plenty in either neighbor sector.

    My concern is still the protection bubble -vs- repair times. Still not well thought out. Now I may have just missed the post - but did you take any suggestions into consideration? Shouldn't the protection time at least match the repair times? I did like the idea that was posted about auto-repair if the player is not logged on for a certain time frame. Things happen in life that prevent us from playing. We're all not sitting behind our keyboards 24/7. I just see more and more players becoming frustrated and quitting.

    Again - I don't care about the levels. If I get hit - oh well, that's the game. Keeps it interesting. The Buddy Bubble - that needs to go. Just take into consideration the Repair / Protection and the auto repair. (Maybe even at the mid-point of timer expiration.) The hit a fleet lose your bubble - that should stay too. I did like that one.

    That's my 2-cents worth.

    thanks,

    Roy

    I don't hit players more that one level below me, and I'm not a liar. Why? Because what challenge is there in beating up on someone that can't possibly put up a fight?? Is part of the game supposed to be turning into an **** bully, or is it in pitting yourself against an equal opponent? If you're so proud of beating up son someone that is at least two times smaller than you, I have a question. Is your life so pathetic that the only way you can feel good about yourself is to steal someone else's lunch money?? What are you, 12?? Grow a pair and act like a big boy. Who knows, you may like it.

    I have no idea if Kixeye even reads these, because they never answer. I certainly know that they don't really give a **** about people who don't coin. I would like it if someone from KIXEYE, or Glitcheye as people in my sector call it, would actually show that they look at these, and don't just have the forums for people to **** in, so they look like they care.

    Should they just change the name of the game to "Bully Pirates" ??

    The little kids just need to keep quiet and take their whoopins and learn from them so they can grow up and be bullies too. Believe it or not, there are some people out there that have ZERO interest in being a bully. Buddy bubbling allowed me to do this and still enjoy the game. I didn't hit anyone else, no one was hitting me. I was having fun in the game (new player, lvl 28).

    Now they've made buddy bubbling less convenient. I'm sure the bullies out there will complain again and get this feature removed as well. Griefers are part of the gaming world. There will always be those out there that get their kicks by causing grief to others. But most games make it so you can avoid these griefers if you wish to.

    This entire update is complete and utter bullshit! We are not stupid enough not to figure out this is to force out those of us that wont coin. If you want a paid game freak'en advertise it as paid not free. I will be sure and tell all the 600 people I know on FB NOT to play this game.

    This is a crock! The res gained in a a salvo....that outranges sfb3....is shameful. Kixeye, your BLATANT attempt at trying to get people to coin is going to cost you MY coins. I REFUSE to coin anymore and we are seeing people quit left and right.

    Have to agree with an earlier post....you are making changes to appease the heavy coiners, but what will satisfy them when everyone else quits?

    This update is a god **** joke. The level changes ok, bubble changes absolutely great (hate watching a lvl 33 **** bubble). What I dont get is the whole change to the salvages. I was a level 32 with decent equipment (no drac ships, but sfb3 eng 3 etc), now I cant collect res. I have to hope and pray that the bases I hit have res, which will more than likely all be gone by next week thanks to salvage updates. Ya keep screwing the players to make em coin, well I refuse to coin now. Bout ready to say **** off Kixeye.

    Cya Battle Pirates. It's been fun but it's time to go. It's either coin up or die. The salvages are fewer, they are MUCH harder and the reward is MUCH less and the fleet repairs cost more. I am .2 away from becoming a level 40 which means I'll just be a farm for ANYONE higher than me and with the new salvage structure farming will be easier than salvaging. Done.
