    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans March 16 - March 22

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:


    Easter April Calendar

    Since March is over mid next week there will be a new Monthly Calendar for you all on April 1! You have under a week to finish up your March Calendars, so hop to it!

    World Boss Health Adjustment - Facebook

    We are making adjustments to the World Boss health on Facebook as a few recent Bosses have been getting down to the wire. This is not a huge adjustment, but we’ll keep tabs on it and tweak further if necessary. You can tell when a World Boss has had its Health adjusted thanks to the "health updated" graphic on the banner.:


    The Capricorn Raid Boss Returns on April 2

    This fearsome beastie is back for another bout! Missed any of the Superior drops or the achievement? You’ll get your chance when the Capricorn surfaces on April 2 at 9:00 am Pacific.

    Happy Friday!

    March is drawing to a close and we've been busy wrapping up tasking and prepping for the new month. April is expected to be a superior month in all respects, in part because of all the totally rad people who were born in it.

    Thank you to the ornithologists who helpfully pointed out that "a cockatiel is a real legit bird." We'll talk to the devs about updating the chat filter to allow easier discussions of this noble creature, although I am dismayed to admit this issue may not be given top priority.

    We are also looking into requests for a weekend Arena to help accommodate players who work weekdays. mi7ch is putting together a short questionnaire to poll people about this and a few other topics, so keep an eye out for it if weekend Arena events are something you are interested in.

    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Did you hear about the Mexican train killer?
    He had locomotives.

    That's it for TGIF this week, everybody! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    Instead of updating the health of World Bosses, how about updating the rewards? Something that is more relevant to the mid-level and high-level players? For example, to get a ship that is useful to me, I have to use 5 Victorious Frigates to build 2 Elite Victorious Frigates, and then use them to build a Legendary Victorious Frigate. That means defeating 10 Giant Krakens, just to get 1 ship that I can use. I think that is a major reason why many mid-level and high-level players don't try very hard to kill some of the World Bosses. There is very limited incentive to do more than the minimum to get something we can't use unless it is the 10th to be defeated. That can take many months, at up to 2 weeks per boss, with a 3-4 week regeneration period. That could be 50-60 weeks. Add some more rewards for those who are well above level 3000.

    Reducing the Health of the World Bosses is more of a preventative measure just in case they start becoming unbeatable, which is no fun for anyone. :) We can definitely look into changing up the rewards. Thanks for the suggestion!

    how bout developing crafting for the newest bosses in lcn, pc, vc? And I don't think the health on fb needs adjusting but i'd say k2 and kano both need it except lcn on kano.

    Hey Mi7ch. Whoever is running the forums in your place while your out for awhile. Might want to let Kano know the pro rating of health on world bosses great idea. Except one issue now is sooner or later the bosses are going to be defeated in the same week. With the health being done this way. Solution which we have asked before. Instead of waiting till friday night early sat morning for some just let the next world boss spring to life once one perishes.
