    i,ve been tracking the number of players online as i,m sure you have and as i,ve surmised the numbers of players is tumbling down . Is it really your intention to drive even more players away from the game .The new DUB,S are rediculously hard to kill theres not enough time to kill them and to cap it all if your fleets killed and you daft enough to go back in they have magically repaired themselves .Is this really what you want kixeye to drive people from the game because if it is BRAVO your doing a fantastic job of it

    The new DUBs are ridiculous. I came back to this game after 4 years of refusing to even look at it. In return Kix gave me 2 fleets of ships (Skyfires for coming back and Icebreakers at the start of the last Bounty) because nothing I had could do anything. Since then I have coined at least $60 to try to get things back on track and Kix breaks my ability to do R&D and takes away the ONLY source of Uranium I had... Nice move Kixeye. I'll be leaving again real soon I think.

    Yeah, I know, and it seems to be working again.

    Seems the low 30s is now the HIGH watermark, a couple of months ago 30k was the LOW watermark.

    That number is the amount of users on the Kixeye site. It is not indicative of the number of player on Battle Pirates. It also does not include users on other platforms such as Facebook.

    I know what the number stands for and I never said it was anything else.

    It means that less and less people are logged into Kix site playing ANY Kix game or attending ANY Kix forum.

    The comment wasn't necessarily directed towards you or anyone else in the thread currently. It is a general disclaimer I make every time someone mentions the "Players Online" number as validation for anything. More often than not folks use it to draw a false conclusion. Typically by comparing it to the number of players that used to be logged at a time in which there were 5 games hosted on the Kixeye site where as there are now only 2.
