    problem is even in a platoon, when u go offline the repair stops. Now this is ridiculous.. u want ppl to sit in front for repairs to happen or want to promote use of auto refreshers..

    i'm sure you all have heard this a million times now, but the units repair feature is not cool. Please take the feature back to the way it was and have units repairs themselves while the commanders are offline. i'm not going to stare at my screen for four hours while my units repair. that's not what i call fun.

    Just like 98% of the other posters here, I agree that the update sucks. I've had it with Kixeye and War Commander. Their greed is spoiling everything. The game just isn't fun anymore. I will be using my fb credits elsewhere from now on.

    One PLATOON at a time, not a single unit, that would be silly. We will look into a way to queue up platoons for repairs after we get this update out.
    It may simplify the UI but it complicates the usage. Before, you could hit repair once and the next day everything would be repaired. Now, you have to keep going back and hit repair.
    I do like the change that you made with the Airfield having 3 tabs 1 for build, 1 for repair and 1 for scrap. That is more simplified than what you did with the vehicles. If you copy what you did with the Airfield to the War Factory, many MANY people will thank you for doing that.

    I agree with u guys.. The new repair system is real bad.. Its so bad it pisses me off.. The worst thing is if u close the game it wil stop repairing.. I must wait 4 hours 2 get one platoon repaired.. And i dont think anyone will wait that long for a platoon 2 get repaired.. I payed much money for this game.. After this update i wont spend one euro for this crap.. And i think a few people will pay for the sneakymoneydigging systeem but alot of people will stop playing this game.. Thnx for destroying the game for us all.. U lost a couple of ur comunity and u will lose a couple more everyday. Fckn **** company at least react.. tell us if u gonna fix it or not

    This update is soooooooooo retarded...i play for 2 hours do 18hours worth of damage to my platoons and now i have to be online in order to get them to repair!?!!!WTF were you thinking kixeye? And 5 minutes to repair a heavy gunner? ROFLMAO!!!! I can make 5 new ones instantly andnot have to wait. You guys dropped the ball on this and i doubt i wil spend money again on any of your games....if i decide to keep playing...a BIG if.

    most of the updates are good, apart from the repairing of units. it seems you can only repair units while online, its a cheap way to try to get ppl to pay for it, i wont be one of them also i hear alot of ppl moaning about it. you could lose a lot of players because of this. i dont think its fair, so if possible please sort it

    Why don't units repair while I'm away? I understand that only one platoon at a time will repair but they're not repairing when I leave to do something else. and now I can't do anything because none of my units will repair and I have work so I can't be on this all day. Unless this is fixed, I won't be able to play anymore :( which sucks caused this is a great game!

    This update is rediculous! It was bad enough only being able to repair one platoon at a time, but if you were carefull this was manageable. Now I find that if you leave the game the platoons stop repairing, WTF! Example- I left a platoon with a repair time of 3hrs at 5pm it is now 11.30pm and there is still 2.5hrs remaining. If it continues like this and is not just teething problems with the new update this will utterly ruin the game. I and many others (from what I can see from chat) will be no longer playing WC. Please listen to us and get this sorted Kixeye. :-(

    "You will see that you can only repair a single platoon at a time and can not queue up all units in your base/storage to repair." ughhh this is what I hated about battle pirates. so now instead of going to bed knowing that a good chunk of my units will be repaired when I wake up, I now will have to wake up in increments at night in order to check up on current repairs and begin new repairs >:(

    Agreed. I dont have the time will most likely stop playing for this reason

    This new repair system is stupid and it is going to have a lot of people quit playing so i hope kixeye is happy you need to put the old repair system back in place where units in storage all repair 1 after the other

    I registered exclusively for the purpose of providing feedback on the new repair system. You CANNOT repair units in parallel if they are in a deposit. That is a lie or a bug. Units will not continue in repair if you disconnect. This is either a bug or an attempt to get people to buy credits to pay for the repair. I WILL NOT BUY ANY CREDITS ANYMORE UNTIL THIS REPAIR THING IS FIXED.

    End of story.

    Bottom Line, is Kixeye going to fix this unit repair debacle or should we start looking for a new game? Please, someone, anyone, answer me this one question

    Simple fix. allow all platoons to repair simultaneously.

    Please consider that infantry are now also clogging vehicle repair times, instead of having their own seperate pathway.

    What were you guys thinking! It's not up to us whether we keep playing only you can correct your mistake which has been well documented here. I like others will give you a week or so to pull your head out and make this right after that I'll go back to doing what ever it was before I started playing WC. I know my wife will be happy if you don't fix this.

    can you change the fact that we have to be online to repair our stuff becuase some people aren't to to happy that they have to sit in front of their computers and watch their units repair

    What's up guys,

    I just wanted to jump in real quick and mention that I'll be making a sticky'd post soon addressing some of the main concerns that you guys have been voicing. I've read this entire thread and have considered all of your posts. To those who are happy-- I'm very glad, and hopefully we can give you even more. To those who are pissed-- don't worry, we're working hard to improve for you, and I think you'll like what we have to say. When that post goes live I'll give you a link in here, or you can check it out at the top of The Command Center with the rest of the stickies.
    I work on War Commander!
