PirateFleet 4 Friends FAQ

Why do I see ads again?

I do understand that a lot of you will be upset that I have added ads after the game moves. The reason is that the server costs are not covered by the revenue from the app. Unfortunately specially the premium players are the main reason for that. You paid a small fee once, but I have to pay for the servers all the time.

I wanted to shut down the game. But several players contacted me and wanted to keep the game. They proposed to add ads to the premium version.
We are still in discussion. So if you have a better alternative, please let me know.

What are the rules?

Arr! Ye not be knowin’ th’ rules te battleship? Oh, ye landlubbers kill me…
Before th’ game begins, each o’ th’ captains arranges all his ships in a grid, an’ each o’ those ships take up squares on th’ grid. Don’t be tryin’ te be sneaky either- the ships can’t overlap each other! After all th’ ships have been put inte their proper place, each player starts with five boms te fire on th’ other opponent’s board. When all o’ th’ squares o’ a ship have been hit, it’s sunk! Ye loose a bomb with every two ships ye loose on yer side o’ th’ board. Once all o’ th’ ships on one side o’ th’ board have gone te Davy Jones’ locker, th’ game’s over and th’ player with his ships left wins!
