    I think that it is awesome that the upgrades  is increasing, imagine a u4 breacher or subjugator and basilisk fleet? My guess is that this is pace setters.  My little theory is that html is taking a lot of development time and than after that we would get  an o.p. upgrade  along with a higher tier of hulls to go along with it. Either that or the hull design on vacation and  kix trying to give reasons to spend again on current ships.

    m8 they dont really give any **** bout the players the only ones they care about are the ones who spend 100s maybe 1000s a month if your not in that bracket then they dont care. the ones spending will do the upgrades no questions asked and just keep the money grab going longer

    Some ships gain no real advantages from upgrades at all, and Survival upgrades are being backseated by armors, specials, and even weapons with uber-high Survival stats of their own.  I'll agree that Basilisk U2 is absolutely vital, as are Interceptors if you play those (and you only really need to upgrade 3 unless you switch hit your play style and use different ones).

    heck from the looks of it they are just going to push high numbers on every thing so all WILL quit and they will start a new game and call it ( battle pirates 2 players start over) has a good ring to it yes I have this feeling html is not going to make it!

    i think U4 upgrade is for their stupid pegasus hull design. The U4 is an attempt to get us interested in that stupid hull. I will never build an assault with -30 range built into the hull. That is insane. The constant upgrade of event targets is going to drive most us out of this game because repairs will be to long and cost to much to coin.

    Agree.  The Pegasus is a crap pile.  The flagship is an overpowered monster, build both of those and use them to flag other ships.

    And the beauty of the upgrades is that they:
    1. Are even longer than the hull build times (for some hulls A LOT longer). 
    2. Occupy the SY, thus preventing building another hull while upgrading.
    3. Require upgrade kits (that for most hulls are not readily available on a day-to-day basis).
    4. Don't accept ship build tokens from FM to speed them up.
    oh...and they are also making players quit...I would know...

    Right now the only thing Upgrades are stopping me from enjoying is Shipwrecks.  Those are utterly pointless without Upgrades.

    The whole idea of a brand new Hull needing ANY  Upgrades to be truly useful in the Event it was designed for is stupid. Especially since they came right out and said when Upgrades were introduced, it was to make older Hulls stay useful........
