     Listening to everyone saying the game is done and Kixeye is greedy and only wants your $$$ is probably
true. there are a few legitimate ways to fix this, if Kixeye would listen, and investigate, and impliment these suggestions.
     Please take this as an idea (s) also, consider it somewhat of a poll to give Kixeye a thought if these might generate the $$$ and help put more fun in the game.
      Idea # 1 ----- I've been thinking the it should be investigated to see if putting an AD campaign together with ads on each side or below to help generate $$$ , making using Google Ads, that would change after a period of time,]
     Idea #2---- What do you think about a monthly fee to play the game? maybe #,95 to 4,95 a month to play?
all of  the special buys, coins and sale items , and yes, coining would continue at the players descression
'
     These are suggestions to help Kixeye to make the $$$ they need and also it might help get there minds into putting the fun back into the game. 
Remember when you comment, understand this is not a ****/complaint deal. I hope Kixeye understands that we ask want this game to survive, 

      I would like to see your comments, and suggestions to see how it can be made better and more fun and rewarding. I see none of that either.
Please be respectful and stay on topic. Remember if you want to vitch and complain start another topic

    1 People tend stay away from games with constant adds because 9 times out of 10 those adds either have an embedded virus tracking cookie or malware
    2 People are not going to pay a monthly fee to play a game where a simple update cant be done without screwing up something or several things that dont get fixed until the next update or 2-3 updates down the road.They also not gonna pay a monthly fee to play a game that almost every aspect of is geared toward coining to keep up or stay with the  current flow. And that they get generic resposes on tickets placed in support .

    Making the game pay to play isnt a good idea. Now, keeping the game free but you can also pay x dollars a month to get additional features, would be nice. Like getting a permanent golld discount for the month, or getting an aditional token in FM, or getting better chances to in the legendary loot box in the FM, or getting double the points for FM/raid/bounty/pillage for the month. Things like this that makes it favorable to spend extra a month but you can still play for free without it.

    There's also the whole protection bubble thing. It costs like 30 bucks to get a 1 month bubble. But nobody has touched that since like the 2nd year the game was out. It needs an update. Maybe add aura affects that you pay for that provide buffs. Like half repair, or reduced base repair time, or a damge multiplier for fleets, or the above mentioned point multiplers for events.

    These are things that would be great to have, but it doenst hurt you if you dont get it. And it wont affect coining because if you have a permanent gold discount you'll probably coin more. OR maybe you'll coin a 1/2 repair multiplier during bounty. But these are things that make gameplay more interesting, yet dont take away from f2p players

    The game has evidently been "dying" since 2012.  I've been hearing this for 7 years now.  Pretty long deathrattle if you ask me.  Everyone with their tinfoil hats will tell you a multitude of theories with plenty of evidence as to why and how the game is dying.  The fact of the matter is...the game is in full effect and strong.  Kixeye would not be spending the resources to convert and bring a "dying" game into HTML5 format.

    Except you forget that kix reduced the number of worlds from 5 down to 1.  Why would you need to do that unless you had lost 80% of your playerbase? Player numbers online at one point was 115k. this raid at one point it was 14K.  14K on during a raid is BAD.
