    I guess we must quit the game for some days to get our free lure to come back, and make it a a good ship not that Dread crappola.

    I thought it was an Aprils fools hoax, I thought not even Kixeye can be this unfair but, look, this is from an account that I almost never play with, it does not have the Dread tech, Never coined with it and I don't have a clue how long ago I logged in to it.

    Of course, on my real account where I log in daily at least for my free coins and do have all the tech, I got nothing.

    Kixeye rewards inactivity now, that's the opposite of what the behind blood amber mentality.

    sorry didn't get it naked but that's the free DREAD

    This just means Kixeye is so desperate to make players that lost interest that kix does not care to alienate even more the players that are loyal and betrayed.

    Thanks for providing.

    I am infuriated right now. The audacity of Kixeye is simply disgusting. I got on my alt, which had been inactive for a month, and I had nothing. I have purchased coins on the account in the past, but only five dollars' worth. This is enough to make me want to give up. This is maddening.

    Kix eye does this a lot, some times when the server fails, some players in my alliance get 500 coins and some 300 and others nothing, its their fault our fleets get destroyed but many get 500 coins and many just get blamed for a slow 12 mbps connection, so com on. this is how you make a game toxic.

    I'm not gonna rage about $5 in coins and free 'fury+'

    free fury? most people that received the offer got a free naked dread and 500 coins, or 2 naked zeals and 1,000 coins.

    Dread is ****, that's why people call it fury+ now.

    YUCK FOU

    Fair's fair.  Everyone should have their very own dread/zeals and 500/1000 coins.  If you're trying to encourage inactive players to come back, that's great...however, handouts across the board would be a good first step to reconnecting with your obviously alienated player base.  Oh, and I'll take some mark gear too.
    Still erasing signatures.  Even when they make fun of erasing signatures.

    treat us all fair kix. Those of us who have spent money get treated worse than the people who havnt who are getting free stuff. Doesn't help no CMs get on forums to talk to anyone about anything. Do you guys still even work there?

    It is fair you have coin privilege. Kixeye is leveling the playing field. :D

    This is socialism at its best... Paid for by Donald Trump.

    this is absolutely embarrassing.. and so far with 5 pages of complaints and questions not a single word from kixeye
    Might as well have a straight trade of rep time for Intel....

    log in game> select a fleet > choose the amount of rep time> get the intel >click rep> log off> wait X h >repeat

    What is even more embarrassing is there has been several threads for the free Dreads but for some reason they do not pop up in the first page of this forum even if someone posts in them.

    Okay, so, since 3 days ago, I have seen many random peopple saying that they suddently found a new Dread Battleship on their Hull Selection menu, bare of equipment, just the hull. And even showed it off in battle to prove it.

    I know it may likely be a silly joke from them, but... to see so many peopple, WHO were entirely unrelated to each other, pull off the same story again and again has made me curious, angry, and feeling left out. :/

    Anyways... WHAT THE HELL?!, how come that random peopple, for no apparent reason are getting free, fancy ships all of the sudden? Why, them, and not everyone as it should be? Thats a really nice way to kick peopple's mood right in the groin. I saw many others beside me complaining and cursing at those who were showing off their new free ships. That is about 15 days of ship building they DIDNT get.

    So... what happened here?

    Using the dreadnarock is a rubbish example cause now there's an even more powerful fleet the marked up destroyers and carrier combo after all the so called rebalancing

    Dude...  I used the Dreadnarok as an example of the best fleet before the Rebalance.  Reading comprehension...  *shakes head*  *gives up on humanity*

    Kix is taking a gamble. A huge gamble with the entire company. They've pissed off existing players to no end, sacrificing existing customers on the chance they will attract new ones. PP admitted this would hurt short term revenues, but I think he underestimated the effects of throwing your entire existing customer base under the bus.

    The never ending new coin offers smacks of desperation, and giving away good offers to some but not others is a special kind of stupid.

    Its almost like the game was being managed by someone who never played it, and relied on watching others and looking at spreadsheets.

    Rule number 1 in business is to know your product. Kix is a business and its games are its products.

    Make good games, make good money.

    Make crappy games, make crappy money.

    Gratuitous picture of angry mob waiting for Monday ....

    @slapinpickle & @Tuco716:  I never said NOT to form an angry mob, I said put it away UNTIL Monday.  Until then, you're just farting into the breeze and causing undo stress on yourselves.  You're building a crescendo of anger without a vent-- the people who normally listen to us won't actually be able to listen until their actual workday (where they're required to listen to us) rolls around.
