Ok you want this good old beating up on each other.. 

REMOVE ALL REPAIRS !!! 
Make this about us having fun, and not about waiting for repairs and or spending gold to do it. 

Make it fun.

    Raids are meant for higher level players with more capabilities. Low level and ill-prepared players can do the FM and now, the Foundry, to get tech up to date to become more competitive in raids.

    If they REALLY wanted to show us baby steps, and since this is only a casual FAT then they would have brought back the Uranium insurance and screw the Gold!!
    THis player is 100% right.  I will say this though.  WEE all no how dim witted they can b over on the DEv side and whoever the genius that approves the stuff that is aloud to go out, but i think of it like this, it usually takes them a decent amount of failures before they take a hint.  U dont lose anything by not playing this FAT.  IT will b another crappy FAT turnout for them i would imagine.  No 1 is gonna coin there ****'s off for skins  LEt them have another crappy turnout for this 1 and mayb they will go back to maken it fun for us with the uranus insurance in the following 1.  Ill do the free battles again that is it for tokens and stuff

    Take, take, take, that is all it ever is with Kix! Why I ever believed all the bullchit about listening to your players blah, blah, blah, and thought things would turn around, is beyond me!! Surprised you even dared post that Doom tbh, surely you would know there would be a backlash again.
    Be careful.... This Kat has very sharp claws!!

    Business as usual. Like raid I am sure they will add some must have tech in. You wonder why no one trusts what you have to say anymore..

    while you call for some good old fashion fun you sure make it seem like a fat quick coin grab attribute. You are correct in the notion one does not have to do it. but think of it this way. What if no one played. what if no one did anything in your game anymore. My point is having or typing in such a smug way  can in itself put forth an action you may not want to happen. You can always take the time to ask a co worker if this seems right or for that matter a good PR agent. If its meant for good old fashion fun then make it fun. second fleet is free 3rd fleet is 10k and up. the skins should be allocated to the first 20 pirates not only 1 person who spends the most wins. This is why the FAT is going down hill because whoever spends the most wins the prizes. Fun is meant to be had by all BP players. Not trying to find some way to have a cash grab at the bequest of a holiday. which is normally when you try and make extra cash at the end of the month.

    Meh I'll take a look at it and see what there is in the toybox this time around. Probably won't do it anyways. I would rather buy the v2 paint job with some coins along with it though! I think the 4K points tag is a bit much for it.

    I'm probably going to get roasted for this but......

    If you don't want to do it, don't.

    Other than the three skins, there are no new prizes in the FAT. 
    Ya you should get roasted for that.. 
    This isnt about what prizes there are, or arent there..      Fighting for 5 minutes, and spending the next few hours repairing.. is neither  Fun, or Old school.. 

    remove the repairs and then it gets fun.   

    So.... don't do it. If you don't like the FAT, don't do it. 

    I'm really confused by this logic. If you don't want to do it, you don't have to. 
    Didn't you guys remove arena tourney's because players wasn't participating in the first place?

    now your bringing it back with the same crap "No U insurance toy box spend gold on ships we don't own" system and expect people to participate for SKINS!

    news flash mate NOBODY WILL DO IT, you guys at kix think we have missed the arena tourneys or something?

    highly doubt that the majority player base will be jumping for joy to see it back, apart from the small minority that think skins are cool.......IDIOTS!

    Kix, you killed the arena tournaments months ago hence why they got pulled from the game in the first place so save yourselves the hassle and leave it dead.

    I think the real problem is the way that the description is worded:

    good, ole fashioned beating each other up for bragging rights. 

    should be

    good, ole fashioned beating each other up with your wallets for bragging rights.

    Bring back the uranium insurance then and only then I will do the FAT.    Other then that its just a coin grab.

    Agreed. People complain about everything, it seems, just for whatever pleasure they get out of complaining.  It has wrecked the forums, and forced players who actually enjoy the game into Facebook groups for support, information, strategy, etc.

    It seems to a lot of players that your Don't do it attitude is totally wrong for a CM.
    Plus the wording of the FAT description as good old fun is laughable.

    The return of repair insurance would bring back the fun to the FAT's

    The FAT is a choice to do, nothing in there is "GOTTA HAVE"  either do it or don't. But all the fussing over nothing makes no sense what so ever.  I personally, am not doing it.  I'm not a collector, for those that are, have fun.
