Thread: LVLD PIRATE: Dark Armor! LTQ Spoilers

I have thousands of gps and hardly any bps, particularly since I still have not received prizes from the weekend versus.��

    Perhaps as a good will gesture, PG could give everyone a gift of enough black pearls to upgrade this ship fully. For those who got this ship, it will make up for it being BP instead of GP, and those who did not get the ship will have BPs I expect they can use elsewhere, or else save for next ship their guild wins.
    I also think the strength should be increased to 4000, or at least even with Thorny Theon or Pirate King. That's not near the fleet ships, but would reflect the comparable difficulty of the ship.
    Lot of ill will circulating right now on forum and in my guild and it sounds like others as well, after the versus prize bug and now a flawed lvd pirate quest. Some obvious token that would help all players would be nice.

    That was the hardest battle. Way more difficult than the battles for our 4000+ ships. I don't know if anyone's said it before but we should have got a much stronger ship for this one.

    I've worn my finger down to the knuckle tapping on this utter c... of a ship!

    I won't bother with this kind of quest again. All those hours invested should yield a fully upgraded ship.

    FWIW, you can upgrade this ship to lvl 6 for only 165 BPs. Stats are 3150/3150 at lvl 6!

    I wouldn't do this type of quest again. far too long battling ships after ship only to receive a ship that I don't have a single BP to upgrade. Tuesday's cash ship has a higher starting rank. I'll bet tomorrow PG will put up bundles with BPs, but I'm not going to bother buying one. I would have been better off buying the Wednesday ruby ship. Really disappointed in this quest.

    I looked up the last 3 quests of this type we had, Muffin Pirate in Feb (3620/3620) Rhino Pirate (3630/3630) & Casino Pirate (3640/3640) both in March. The stats were nowhere near Level 4 Fleet Battle strength, the ships upgraded with GPs, the ships won were stronger. I too am very disappointed in this latest quest.

    I wrote in to PG on this quest to express my disappointment. I have to admit to being surprised that PG staff have not commented on the Forum.

    Horribly designed Quest!!! Would love to hear PG's explanation and thoughts!!!

    Are you looking for something more elaborate than, "we're trying to get people to spend/buy more rubies so we can increase our revenue/profit"?

    Their limited staff is probably concentrating on all the tickets that have been opened about the missing versus prizes that players still haven't gotten.

    I don't think they're spending any time at all at PG answering our tickets...everybody will get this response which I received last night

    Hi Susanne,

    Thanks for providing me with great feedback! I appreciate you sharing your experience with the game, it always helps the team to hear directly from players. I will pass your report along to the game team to see if we can get this changed for the game's future updates.

    Thanks for playing!

    I've already written back advising that I don't want to wait until the team can get this changed for future updates. mY ticket is about this quest and I won't be satisfied unless I receive enough free black pearls to fully upgrade this ship. uNtil that time I will not spend money to buy bundles or rubies.

    I have the Dark Armor Pirate in my new cove. It's a defeat 50 times ship, but I got no quest with it, just the Pirate to defeat.
    I'm on level 6 and I don't have the resources to battle him (3 low level ships only) does anyone know how long he will hang around? He has a large footprint making it hard to collect from my mediocre village.
    There is no fairness or consistency in TPC; so just because you have it in your cove, it may not be the case for everyone. And just because everyone else has it, doesn't mean you will. Except crashing, everybody has crashing!

    I'm at level 8 and have it as well, I thought this was one of the fleet quest pirates and that we got keys and gold pearls instead of the quest. I have no chance of betting him either.
    Edit: I thought I could collect while he was covering the area but discovered now why I was struggling with getting enough coins, try to refresh your game and he will move or place merchants away from the shore.

    As this is the second time around for me, I know about the Pirates stealing your coins (if their red footprint touches the building.)
    That's why I move the merchant out of the way to tap and my houses are place away from the coast.

    Moved up to level 7 (too much chopping trees) the mermaids got more expensive awfully quick!!
