This is SOOOO right on. Who is ANYONE else to say what I or anyone else thinks is "fun?" In our group, we don't allow buddy bubbles. But I personally don't care if I see someone else doing it. It's THEIR game account. They are entitled to have FUN playing the game. There are PLENTY of bases to hit, hit one that isn't bubbled. I have a lot of empathy for the lvl 27, 28 and 29 players, getting hit by the level 32, 33 and 34s. No way they can stand up to that. Something that is FAR WORSE than getting a friendly buble is a lvl 34 FARMING a level 29 every time his bubble drops. Maybe the guy was born in that sector, has friends there and doesn't want to move. Who is kixeye to tell him to leave? Why can''t the BULLY leave?
I am level 33, and don't hit 27s unless they hit me first. Maybe Kixeye should look at the +/- 5 level thing instead of the buddy bubbles...you should NOT be able to hit a 29 if you are a 34, it's like Mike Tyson punching a toddler! I think +5 but -2 or 3 would be MUCH more fair.
The only penalty for getting a buddy bubble should be for the jerks who hit a base, then run and get a bubble before there can be retaliation. Those guys are scum. So if you hit a base, you can't get a bubble for 24 hrs unless you are hit and take damage...that I could live with.
But if you take away the friendly buble, you will stop guys in the mid-to-high 20s from ever growing, and they will quit buy the dozens. And we will have dead bases all over the place (BTW, how about u perma-bubble/delete all the dead bases, they are already starting to pile up from those that have quit due to all the glitches, lag, and impossible-unless-u-coin-heavy raids u guys run).
If Kixeye doesn't want this to be a FREE game (required on Facebook), the get it the hell OFF FACEBOOK! Otherwise, leave those that wanna bubble for protection/growth the hell alone. You already do too much to cater to all the coiners. I know they make it possible to play, but so do all those that wanna play for free (be a pretty empty sector w/o those guys). So split up what u do 50/50....coiners/free players. Right now it's about 70/30 if u count the raids (which are pure coiner events if u wanna win the top prize, especially the typhoon raids). I remember when a non-coiner could do well in a raid...back when they were fun (now they feel like work)...back when we could hit salv for the Raids...I think they were called "Resource Raids" or something like that...they were fun. Even the Base Invaders could be fun because you and your friends could team up. Now, sadly, they are pure $$$$. No teamwork, not enough res. to make all the damage worthwhile. And the ONLY way to win a ship (the sub sucks, BTW) is to spend at least $50 during the raid on repairs, or much more than that on ships that will take less damage because you don't give us enough time between raids to build them w/o coining (I realize that's your goal, but you could at least TRY to be more subtle about it).
Sorry about the book....but I have been holding all this in for a few months. I realize the only ones who will pay any attention to this are the trolls who wanna insult me. No one at kixeye gives a flying **** what I think; I only spend about $50/month. So I'm a nobody. But, like I said, there will be a lot of empty sectors if they soon don't have a cranialrectalotomy (an operation to remove their heads from their ****).
PS: You make a FvF battle cause to lose a bubble, and I will quit. Immediatly. That's not a threat, that's a promise--my $50/month ain't a lot, but I'll be damned if I will lose a damage protection bubble for hiting a fleet!

Agree whole heartedly, only I dont even coin $1, so my consent may mean less than your post.....lol.....only I won't quit before I'm good and ready or get banned.....free players are falling along the wayside at level 33/34 and I am nearly 34:((

25% needs a bump to 30%. Bases are over powered and 25% really isn't anything with a well built base.
