Seriously? Can't gate into conqueredcolonies? Thats **** stupid, thats gonna kill overly achieved players with a run of bad luck, they can't protect each others crystals if they have em if they can't gate to each other in time, the defender is supposed to have that advantage of being able to gate support if the attacker is stupid enough not to jam their colony. I believe that makes it a bit unfair for the common player.

Then a time limit on storage? Ridiculous, they paid for it, let em have it.

And 100 for a gold colony? It doesn't give you anything worth a damn, so starting now on it'll be a very rare occurrence to see those, who wants to spend that much on something so trivial and pointless..

Other than that, I like most of what you did with the updates.


In the old client we had it that you couldn't gate to conquered colonies and moved to them at a regular attacking speed, not the fast speed of moving to a target from your alliance. This was in place to prevent the kind of exploitation of using conquered colonies to gate in units to attack colonies from. This is a very unfair scenario to the defenders as they cannot capture and control the colony like an outpost and the attackers can easily move off and back when the colony is attacked. We left it out in the new client originally by mistake thinking that we'll see how it plays out but we had the same scenario we feared happening again in a few cases which prompted us to once again implement this game mechanic.

We lowered the cost of the storage package to 50 tokens to compensate for the time limit on it. The big storage was too cheap and lasted too long so we feel this is more balanced and in most cases you won't need the big storage until the last 1-2 months so you can save tokens to buy other boosts in the start to mid time of a world.

The golden colony is simply a way to support BD and get a flashy colony without gaining an advantage. For those that wish to make a pure donation and have a golden colony as a "Badge" this is the boost for them. You don't have to purchase any of these boosts, they are optional and in the future we plan to add in more customizable looks, profile features and conveniences that don't give a direct in-game advantage.

I'm thinking of possibly removing the auto-vacation feature, I don't think it's working the way we had hoped and is causing more frustration than the benefit it should be giving. Instead we'll keep in that you get a notification when you normally would be put on auto-vacation that your account will delete soon and that's it, the colony will stay active until it hits the inactive time to delete of 8 days(16 if a supporter).

Cmon please address the situation and tell us why it is the way it is.

Many people have complained about it so it is about time you explained!

Thanks for addressing my querry /sarcasm.


What is this slaughter rule I've heard about? This is a terrible feature and should be removed immediatelly.

A:It is a strategic way to show what an enemy army contains. That's what BattleDawn is, Strategy.

B: It isn't always one inf spam units to show an army, but if I attack a colony, and he only has 4 inf on him, and I "slaughter" him, why doesn't he retain the right to see what army his attacker has?

I reckon we do a bring back the old login system!

The new system is bad, takes to long for those who play on multiple worlds (I play on 8) and to have to login like twice on each world is just plain annoying and takes so long, and uses up precious data!

My Appeal is to the Admins to bring back the old login, or allow the two different ones to co-exist! I am going on strike until either the new system is updated, or the old one is brought back!

Please don't take this as a threat I love the game, and want the best for it, as I know you guys do!
