If your fortunate enough to not have played Battle Pirates, Dont bother to play and expect to always have a account, and by all means seriously reconsider ever paying any money into it.
I have hundreds and hundreds (stupid i know) invested and then one day, out of nowhere, Banned for cheating!!!!!. Ok, I have heard of people getting banned for nothing, even a friend of mine who started out playing (i talked him into joining me for some fun) only for him to see his new base get banned within 24 hours. And he didnt do anything. The list goes on of numerous unexplained bannings.
The worst part is that while you think you can ask them what happened, "this must be a mistake", all you will receive is a form response telling you that they have proof of you cheating and are permanently banned unless you tell them how you did it, and u get to start over at level 1 and loose all your stuff!
Funny part is they wont tell you what they think you did, show any proof so you can try and figure out what happened, nor will they respond to you again. If they dont know, doesnt that say something?
So in a game where they wont fix glitches where you can refit your ships weapons and have it either loose your ship (after u waited all week), or make a sudden duplicate that if one gets killed other ships in ur other fleets die too, or you launch your fleet only to now have several copies of same created out of nowhere, lag, sudden total graphic format changes, etc.............Just remember, ur just a glitch away from the banhammer and no chance of getting a response as to why.
