    Can someone pls explain the 3 days?


    Looks like 4 x 3 day tokens for a total of 12 days
    a defence platform is 1 day 15hrs for lvl 10.. so how do they work out 3 days per platform? or is it 3 days total? confusing..  
    Its a structure build token, so you have to take into account "EQUIP" operation as well, not just "UPGRADE" operation.

    I am certain Assault Chest was top left selection. I am certain I chose Assault Chest. A am also certain that I received a skrimish item in the chest I ended up with.
    Pirates, please note that the chests are playing a game called "Pick Wrong"

    Same thing happened to me and others. You go to select Assault top left and skirmish switches place with it. I ended up with a skirmish myself i didnt want.

    I just love that the ships can move out of sight and that part of the screeen is locked for input. Well done devs :) Once again you prove just how well you think things through.

    Why does the wave timer create such a large dead space in the screen? I love that 5 pages of obvious problems with this event is greeted with upping the capacity of the trick or treat chests to 200.

    Oh, and this too ..

    EDIT: Just noticed that the other chests were changed to a limit of 40. Great. They STILL switch places after you select one SMH. Seriously??? Do you guys even play this game?
    Upgrade Pirates is not as fun as Battle Pirates

    Hellos CM_Ghillie,
    Grumble, The FM is not listed on the calendar. Is it possible to have the FM listed on the calendar every week the FM is going to run? It would save a bit of time answering if it is running every week.

    Cycle 1
    Begins: Wednesday, October 16th @ 3:00PM PDT
    Ends: Wednesday, October 23rd @ 12:00PM PDT

    Cycle 2
    Begins: Wednesday, October 23rd @ 3:00PM PDT
    Ends: Wednesday, October 30th @ 12:00PM PDT

    Cycle 3
    Begins: Wednesday, October 30th @ 3:00PM PDT
    Ends: Wednesday, November 6th @ 12:00PM PDT

    Cycle 4
    Begins: Wednesday, November 6th @ 3:00PM PDT
    Ends: Wednesday, November 13th @ 12:00PM PDT

    listed in the October fm briefing
    Yes, I am aware of that.
    However, the key part : "The FM is not listed on the calendar"
    The FM was listed on the last couple of calendars. Now the calendar is published once a week, and is shared around to many pages, (good information dispersal). The briefing with this list of FM dates is done monthly (good information but, decaying dispersal). Every week where the FM is not listed on calendar, I see a slew of people asking if there is an FM that week. Simply inserting in one sentence into the calendar would remove some players confusion. 
    -Cuttlefish

    another thing that was missing was how much time is left to complete campaigns when you open up the campaign summary.

    just a matter of convenience, but it's just a bit annoying to have to stop playing, open a browser, wait for kix forum page to load, then try to find the appropriate post for the info you need when before it was just a matter of glancing at the campaign summary page in-game.

    nothing world shattering, but as you say, simply inserting one line per campaign on the campaign summary pop-up would alleviate some players confusion.

    Fair point - something I can easily flag. Thanks!

    Where's the Penetrative Battery? That's some fairly useful limited tech that a lot of people would get but there's no current access to it.
    Keep an eye in Pillage... most of the prizes in the Halloween Event were meant to help folks who may not have that tech, but next time we can look at both the prize format and consider adding a greater variety for more players.

    Ok, CM Ghillie,  so from everything you have read in this thread... the one thing you gleaned is that we, the players, wanted the limit of chests increased to 200? Not an inkling of anything else?....anything???

    Kixeye are listening to the players and value their feedback?

    Classic example of how well the company, and it's employees, take notice of anything, at all, we players have to say.

    The only trick I see here , is to treat the player base like complete morons.

    Happy Halloween  >:)



    But they think its fun...

    Adding a greater variety to a random luck chest is NOT what the player base is asking for.

    (Just want to make sure you see that.)

    Since first introduced, the random luck prizes have been HATED by the player base.

    How come you can't put the Praetorian skins on your flagship, bit of a waste of points

    Actually looking at changing that. :)

    I really don't want to put words in the mouths of the game designers on this event. But I will be honest-I would like to know what you were thinking on this event. For an advanced player there is essentially nothing for us to make doing this event be worth the damage taken. None. Virtually all of the tech offered I already have OR I simply have no use for. Why would someone take HOURS of damage in these targets for a CHANCE at a few prizes like skins? Many of the Rogue Crews you are offering don't work. I mean simply they are BROKEN-you guys KNOW THIS FOR A FACT. There are just a few of them that actually function. I noticed you don't offer the Grease Monkey-if you offered that=more would play-guaranteed. What about Demolition Squad? More would play. Rethink these prizes and add ones of value for more advanced players and maybe we might take part in this.

    Then don't do it? It's supposed to be a fun and goofy distraction, nothing more.

    Targets are easy enough, just hug that FD real close and the only damage is from the drone ships, BUT, the health of the FD is so insanely high for the Silverfish targets, it's a slow boring chore to kill it. After two targets, it's no fun to even try any more.

    But, I have had a couple of Tier 8.5 prizes, which all I'm equating is pillage/raid points saved.

    So no armor praetorians is best???  I've been away from game for about 2 years and just now got this hull but seems no one knows what armor to put on it as the armors for them doesn't work properly?  This is what made me quit the game when the Inferno dragons were released along with the charged armors which now seem to work correctly however, did NOT work when first released and many wasted money putting them on their infernos.  So an answer for this armor setup from the kixeye team, which seems to still have no clue how to communicate builds yet still forces my hand on what fleets to use for which target, would be appreciated if you'd like me to remain returned to game after long hiatus.

    I took a Suppressor into a 14 - it did nothing. Why does it say we need it?  In the meantime it takes forever to kill the big green with flag and silvers.  Total drag!
    the suppressor is a floating ****!
