    Changed
    • The free shop hurry does not reset the shop timer anymore. It didn't make sense to wait for the shop to refresh to then hurry it to get maximum value, so now you always get maximum value no matter when you refresh the shop.

    Well let's see how this goes, all looks good but the only thing i don't like are the cow bells in the music. Anyway, try not to endulge in too much Surströmming (that's if you guys eat it) ?

    Do you mean as a chat channel or the earlier bug? As a chat channel it is coming later and for the bug it was fixed, it was this: "Added Latin Extended Additional characters to the chat font"

    You want us to pay $5 a week to tell the developers what needs fixing? Or am I misunderstanding the VIP subscription? Sure, no ads would be nice, but pay you weekly? Shame on you

    I've played a few games but haven't seen the new map ?
    Also how many players are allowed in fleet up friend battles ?

    Devs,
    Why I can´t fleet up with a friend with no more than 800 infamy difference?
    Because your system does. I, again, just lost a battle cause I was the only one in a match with infamy 2500 against infamy more than 4000.
    Just explain why your system can put me with the lions and I cannot be the biggest one in a very lower level??
