    Still long repair time and no way to get tokens
    Worst of all - what did they do with the Armadas - we've been uranium starved for 2 weeks now :s

    Where is the Uranium!?!? 10 units of uranium at a time and you want me to come up with 100,000. Drac bases are bubbled, Armadas are never to be found. and my FM is done for the week (can only get to t3).

    you people should know by now Kixeye does not care about us and our comments.  they created this discussion link to help keep our comments from flooding the links they actually peek at once a month
    May not be the biggest or the baddest, don't care if I win or loose. I am a winner just for trying

    pourquoi les bastions draconnian sont presque tous disparue dans le secteur 265 ?


    Ceci est un forum anglophone, il faudrait émettre tes commentaires/question en anglais si tu désir avoir des réponses.


    Les bastions ne sont pas disparu, ils on soient été détruits et ils ont une bulles de protections pour 24 heures. De plus, 1 sur quatre a été transformé en base d'uranium.


    Translation: Why are all the drac base in sector 265 almost all gone ?


    All bases have either been hit adn are bubble and one out of 4 was turn into a Uranium Drac Base.

    Don't even know why they have this post here they are not going to read all, or if any of them. Maybe they should have named this "Post Your Complaints Here - We Don't Care". That seems to be the attitude on their part all of the time. All the Armada posts just get merged and the answers the so call called Mods are giving us is absolute BS. "Working as intended" what a load of crap. Majority of peeps are still asking why the bar decreases when we are still hitting Armadas and cargos when the appearance of Armadas is minimal if any at all. Some straight honest answers would be appreciated not the BS coming from the Mods. But I guess this is Kixeye and they will never change. Amazing they have lasted as long as they have.

    Someone reads it.  I made a post expressing my feelings regarding the "Drac Coax AKA another Lie" thread here  and it was deleted after getting one like.

    All of this is fine and Dandy for those that have been playing for years....but for the new players there are fewer and fewer chances to reach tier 3 in weekly and monthly campaigns.  there are ten times more 65's 75's and 85's than there are 27's 34's and 40's......so are we going to continue to cater to the high level players. lower levels spend gold too....if given a change with a clear goal.

    Fix the bug that causes fleets not to repair.

    It is such a fundamental part of the game it is just crazy to return to the game 5 hours later and find out your fleet didnt repair.



    thats happen to me 3 times today repair quit come back an fleet stopped wonder if they put in a code that targets non coiners to have this problem 
    No. It happens when we slow repair also. Make it to where clicking repair isn't the last thing you do before logging off. What CS told me to do was to click repair on your selected fleet, collect from your res generators, view the world map, put your left leg in, put your left leg out, and all the other hokey-pokey steps including turn yourself around and your fleet will be repairing or done repairing when you get back. It's a pain in the azz, but it has to do with catching 'prefered customers' so I don't complain that it hasn't been fixed.

    well since the coax saga has been closed I want to post this here:

    Please go here: http://www.thedarkalliance.org/forum/threads/731-2015-December-17-Update

    cntrl F and type in coax.

    Then find out you have been blatantly lied to yet again.

    It was made to have .2 second reload...long enough to coerce guys into coining them. Once they discovered it would shut down this months I win fleet they changed it plain & simple.

    You guys have the gall to sit there & say it was mis-labled. What a steaming heap of crap that is!

    They're calling in Greenpeace...to save the vanishing whales. Greenpeace showed up, looked around, shook their heads sadly, and said it's hopeless....

    Its still a bunch of crap. WHEN THE HELL ARE YOU GONNA GIVE US SOME DECENT BASE DEFENSE WEAPONS !!!!!!!!! Gettin sick and tired of fleets just walkin through my base without any damage. I have been asking about this for 3 years and you STILL aint done squat. No range, very little damage to attackers. Walls are worthless and a waste of time. Gettin hit by people 30 and 40 levels higher. Its BS.......  Ya keep squawking about leveling the play field. WHEN ?????  All I see is more smoke and mirrors and buying more time so people will coin.

    "State of the Game" Currently on a spiral down words to what certainly seems to be the end of one of the greatest game we have ever played.......

    1. Still have way too long of repairs times, building times, refit times, and researching times.
    2. Dock should ALWAYS be instant repair. #1 reason people log off is they can't launch a fleet to play the game.
    3. New stuff is still coming WAY too fast.... And WAY too often....
    4. Broken promises still being given every month, heck almost weekly anymore, about stick around things are getting better real soon....
    5. Make a new part of the game that takes Uranium. And then make Uranium 500% times harder to get.... Way To Go There!!
    6. 2 steps forward and 10 steps back. That's how 98% of us feel daily when we log on.
    7. Sector bar... Great idea, that prior to the 3rd phase of the bar, it was super easy for any sector to max the bar out. Then add new content and it falls down faster than a players base against a Harlock Aegis and 4 Zoe Rhinos all skulled out with Blade Missiles. Ask why "working as intended"
    8. Thanks for nothing once again.... I miss the game that you guys ruined..... Only play now to talk with those friends who still play a bit and to wish one day you may make this once great game, great again....

    I agree with a lot of people agreement, I know this game is ruff. I am only level 52 and I can't even beat the Revenge Raid on C. First wave I lose all of my fleets.  I really don't like the revenge raid. How am I post to get better if I can't improve with out new Hulls or equipment. I am looking forward for January 1-10 for kixeye to improve. It gets really boring while other players just smashes me in base attack when I can't even  dent there paint. I would really like to enjoy the events where I can actually do some thing. I am waiting for Kixeye to help us out so that I can enjoy the events again and the game.

    Stop trying to grab money off people with a poor product and dishonesty. Improve the game and people will spend money. You don't know the first thing about a successful business and have no business acumen at all.

    i.e: Spawning or rather the non spawning of lvl 60 Drac Armadas. I spent almost 45-60 minutes searching for them in spite of sector bar being yellow and found only 2 miserable lvl 60s which yielded only 13k uranium each. By the time I logged in again after refreshing the sector bar has gone teal and no drac armadas.

    This is the state of the game if you must know.

    So you're going to fix build/refit times and repair times.  the place to start is to cut these times by 2/3.  Build a 38,000 ton fleet in 1 month, refit a fleet in 1 week to keep fleets current, try new tactics and prepare for raids. Cut repair times to 1/3 of current. Also change the refit lab to refit ships as well.  This would allow refitting a fleet while building a fleet.  Build or refit in the shipyard + refit in the refit lab.  

    As for your new R&D feature, by level 16 I will spend 2,000,000+ Uranium for 4% off repair, 3% off build, a ship + some crap.

    You are out of your collective minds if you think that is a good deal.  Who ever thought up this scathingly brilliant idea needs to be tared and feathered.

    Get real, do not comprehend the level of anger you have generated in your customers.  Its a game.  Put the fun back in!  Now is a good time to start!

    My Question for all of this BS is this Give us the Total Number of every % in this New Research thing like for instant's are ya saying(6% for crit is that every 6 shot's or every 60??) or like (3% for build time's is 30sec's or 3sec's??).  More INFO needed??? for all of them to keep most of us and the timer needs to go or the Uranium cost need's to be way WAY less.
      Just the fact's of Our time of playing Your game dose not Matter to anyone there at Kixeye, If our time meant anything to you ya start working on the amount of WAIT time it COST us to wait. The less Wait time there is the more we will spend to play this game like we did when the waiting time was Way way less.
      The time for this to happen thow has come and gone so if the Team dose it this next year then good for them and I hope all ya Pirate's have fun this is the last year for this Pirate.
