    They better keep the interceptor 1k hp event bonus across all events for awhile.. that’s what’s currently making it viable to use even at low level. It’s definitely the funnest ship of the bunch, even with my relatively low hp (only at lvl 2 currently).

    Unrelated: anyone else irritated that the game requires reloading and reconnection when you go out of the app for more than ~10sec? At least on iPhone.. even looking at notifications briefly the game reloads and I lose ads bonus etc. Should be more like 30sec before it does that. Annoying.

    We agree on most of that... I was actually responding to the players complaining about training trees being more expensive... it does slow progression, but it's overall a better way to go.

    The only unanswered issue at hand is the Premium Ship evolution cost. All we know is this:
    • Event rewards are slower than before because we get nothing but ship pieces.
    • We haven't a clue what future Events hold just that they will not be as before.
    • We haven't a clue how to get Ship Pieces outside of Events
    • More Ship Pieces are required than any other currency in the game, and they are proving to be much harder to get than gold or sugar.
    So at this point the only evidence we have is that Event rewards are not only slow, but nearly useless.

    I agree with you.
    This week long event was pretty pointless for those who know they will never get the ship to a useable level. In fact it is actually hurting my progress more than it's helping. I'm missing out on star crates which may seem useless but I desperately need grey and green parts right now. The only reasons I stuck with the event is damage potential for weapon achievements and being able to enjoy the game without worrying about losing infamy during these changes.

    That being said I have managed to gather only 5k ship pieces over the course of this event even though I have played a solid 3-4 hours per day. This is in part because of unresolved issues making it difficult to even play the game and the other part is just the choice of CTF as our event. CTF is the most teamwork dependent event out there and quite frankly some players just don't know how to work as a team. So once again personal progress is being limited by random matchmaking.

    I'm curious to see what happens moving forward but unfortunately I might not be around to see it. (Not because of any game changes but because of the sheer neglect shown to players with serious issues caused by the update that rendered the game unplayable on their device.)

    Also the match making for the event needs repairing fast as had a battle that had 3 speeders and 2 shooters on one side and 4 shooters and a defender on other side. Needless to say the side with no speeders lost within 2 minutes as the 3 speeders were picking the flag up every time it was dropped and didn’t help the speeders had our flag within 10 seconds of match starting and took us 30 seconds to get to there flag by which time they nearly reached there flag area with our flag.

    The broken match making is making the capture the flag either fun to play or makes you want to quit the game and never play it again due to lack of balance in battles.

    Epic Dbl Shield and Epic Std Shield have the same gearscore! SERIOUSLY?

    That's a symptom of a bigger thing. There should be things done special for events, like for CTF adding relevant event commands "Defend" and "Escort" and balancing to be tweaked based on OP configurations in the specific event. I've had 5 Shooter vs 4 Speeder + 1 Shooter matches.... obviously not balanced by boat, and not optimal for the 4 Speeder side.

    I don't see team composition as a problem AT ALL. I don't care if some matches are 5 speeders vs. 5 shooters -- even in CTF! That adds variety to the gameplay, which makes the games replay value very high for me. I wouldn't want every match to be balanced by Fixers, Speeders, Enforcers, Shooters, or ANY OTHER BOAT!

    Thank GOD each match is different, and sometimes wildly unique! Give me those challenges! Give me those games where I have to be creative to find a new winning strategy to accommodate my team's makeup!

    Fair enough, it's all part of the RNG embedded in this game's DNA.

    There are some obviously unfavorable matchups though. In CTF if my side has two Speeders and the other has none, it's a 90% win probability. Have you ever seen a 5 Shooter vs 5 Fixer ranked match? I have... and I actually felt sorry for the Fixers because they had zero chance to win. We'll all get the good and bad matchups over time.

    ships as well as the current icon just dont look up to date. the two captains facing each other simply showed what battle bay is about.
    not that i watnt to say they downgraded instead of upgraded, but people mainly judge visually...

    So I want to say I really like the new interceptor and want to continue playing but I have to ask how are we suppose to earn more ship pieces going forward? Also when will we be able to use gold to upgrade the interceptor and new ships?
    Lastly with the cost of upgrading ships dramatically increased are you going to make it easier to earn pets instead? Right now I had been spending gold on parts but if I am going to have to spend significant amounts of gold on ships and ship pieces it will make it really hard to upgrade weapons. Some clarity would be appreciated.
