    Its short for Mark. Like Mark 1, Mark 2, etc. Think Iron Man's suits. When the next version was an improvement got a new number as the next gen.

    Long long ago, back in the day.... Battle Bay used to have ship levels. There was Mk1 through Mk7. The ship got better stats with each level and got a new beefier skin.

    The ships we have today are all the Mk 1 skin of each of the original 5 ship types. Search the forums and you can find older videos.

    I dont know what happend to the last biggest update that arrived. Many players when mad about when mks are gone. There were no confliction about mk if i know. Sadly thats the unique thing on the game on what status or label on your game and i want to achieve mk7 but since it was flushed away i think il stick to reaper now. Thats the only thing that makes me happy idk why. Sorry for the grammar i think so

    Mk system was less profitable for Rovio so rather then 7 level boats now they have 50 levels .

    Removing MK was the first step toward removing all pre-battle or in-battle level identifiers. My theory is that was decided when they started widening matchmaking criteria, so rather than have lower level boats have a target plastered on their bow, they offered the illusion that you may be battling an equal. In that context it seems ok, but as a patch to problems with uneven matches, it felt dirty.... and that dirt doesn't seem to wash off.

    Far from the first step, more like the last.

    More like the middle step.

    Step 1: Declining player base, widen matchmaking criteria
    Step 2: Replace MK levels with ships that only vary in shielding, effectively hiding ship levels in matches
    Step 3: Hide Infamy/Captain Level before matches.

    Lol that explanation actually seems to make sense for why they’d abolish diversity and character from the game lol
    When I read, my imagination also touched on a rovio staff meeting when they made the decision that went a little like this
    Zeus: “But mk7 is suppose to be one the pinnacles of a top player! We can’t just give it to every one!”
    “Easy fix, we’ll just give em mk6s”

    No hiding infamy/league/captain level before matches happened at tbe height of seal clubbing, long before ship mks were removed man.

    I wonder if they came up with interceptor concept before scrapping the mk system? It looks like it may have been a lower mk lvl and missing a panel that would have came at mk7 BFCFF0F8-5077-4E1A-A2D3-40C04C1B90EB.png
