    Hello everyone......
    I have an idea and i think it;s quite good.....

    Why you Kixeye guys don't create a new building called "repair room" and everyone that wants to repair his platoons to send them in this area??
    Also we can upgrade this building and increace the space of units that can hold....for Example at 1lvl 2600 space units can be repaired....and until to 10lvl 24500 space units can be repaired....that means all the stagging area.....also the upgrade of the building can increase the repair time by like 3% in each lvl....so an extra 30% bonus to repair time to the fully upgrade!!!!


    ** Also we must notice that even if some1 of our enemies kill this building.....the repairs will not stop...cause if this happen may enemies do spam attacks to this building to make you can;t repair.....so i think that the idea of even the building is dmg the repair will not stop is good...or you can make this building immune like the dozer....

    Hope you like it...
    and also give to high level players like me a new building to upgrade....because we really have nothing to upgrade and we are lazy...

    I'm still waiting for player vs player in this game. More interactive, you can attack a player inside his base and let him defend by controlling his own platoons inside. Sounds possible?

    they are working on this atm so it will probably be released in a patch coming up soon

    i know my spelling is bad but i was wanting to ask if it is posible can what is at your base in platoons or not still have the repair all buttion the idea of rememmberd plattons is great and the repairs at depo is awsome but just for what is at your base would be nice to have a repair all button still in tackd understandable platoons not in your base be one at a time


    thank you for your time brandon from sector 27

    ive read through all this and I cant see that it is answered, or it might be me being a noob.
    I understand that repairs are done per platoon, but once 1 platoon is repaired, does the 2nd automatically start repairing, or do we need to click a button to set the repairs away?

    from what i read we must click repair for each platoon to start repairs....
    so if one is finished....we have to click for the next to start...and this sux...

    if this is the case, worst update ever.
    We need tanks repairing overnight, otherwise we got nothing to use the next day. You are forcing us to sit on a game and do nothing.

    I just dont get it though. Are they expecting us to log in every 2 hours or so to start a new platoon repairing? Otherwise, we have a day of battles, then a day of logging in every 2 hours to start new platoon repairing, then the next day we can battle again.
    Come on, they must have thought about this?!
    The platoons MUST automatically repair once the previous one is done. This is unacceptable.

    Can a moderator or David Scott please confirm the situation regarding the platoons repairing.
    Will the 2nd platoon automatically repair once the 1st one is done and so on? If not, when will that be fixed?
    This is most frustrating and Im sure you can imagine the magnitude of this issue.

    A quick thought on War Commander's major update:

    If all units are to have permanence across the board, it might be a good idea to require to have "delayed permanence" - they're dead, so rather than just having them be resurrected, the player should have to wait for their arrival as reinforcements. Obviously, this will apply to infantry more than armor or air, because the repair delay already covers that in the case of armor and air.

    More thoughts to follow as they come to mind. Thanks for reading.

    So don't damage ALL your platoons at once - I feel that only the tank spammers are pissed off about this new repair system. Well, too bad - now maybe it will force people to actually have to think about a strategy to destroy a base instead of throwing everything and the kitchen sink at it so it will DP. Now you can still do this, but be prepared to COIN repair and ask yourself is this player really worth it :)

    Are you always this much of a tool, or do you have to build up to it? I love people like you that feel they need to come in here and dictate how others play the game. I'm sure you'll just say you are making suggestions. It's like you signed up just to be a douche bag, which we know you are not. That would imply you could get close to a ****. Have a nice day!

    I know this has nothing to do with the upgrade or even WC....

    But if this is Kixeye why can't Battle Pirates announce upgrades such as this as well? It's the same company.

    WHAT HAS BEEN GREAT ABOUT THIS GAME IS THAT YOU DIN'T HAVE TO WASTE YOUR LIFE PLAYING IT. THE UPCOMING SINGLE PLATOON REPAIR IS A BAD DEVELOPEMENT. IT IS A GOOD ENOUGH REASON FOR ME TO STOP PLAYING. I STOPPED PLAYING OTHER GAMES CAUSE THEY REQUIRED CONSTANT LOGINS TO KEEP A CERTAIN PLAYABILITY LEVEL. IF KIXEYE AIMS TO ENSLAVE PLAYERS OR MAKE EM PAY THANK YOU BUT I AM NOT HAVING ANY OF BOTH.

    I am a paying player. I admit it. I mostly paid my way to finish off an upgrade early so that i don't have to stay online all night guarding resources. But now what you propose is that i will have to log in all the time just to get my units repaired or pay my way to play.

    Well I am just about to say goodbye. I don't need to enslave my self to any game. I am already married :) :) :)

    1. This repair each platoon at a time thing is dumb, there should be a repair all button.

    2. You know the long upgrade times and single dozer make people log in LESS. Say I put an upgrade that takes 2 days. I won't log in for 2 days because there is nothing else to that interests me as a lower level player, there are no deposits for me to take and I can only battle the AI so many times without new units to make new strategy. It also makes no sense collecting more resources if I am max capacity but can't spend them on anything good because my one dozer is being used and I am not going to spend a ton of currency on jackrabits or drones just because...

    If you let people build second bases like many other games, that would help very much at keeping people online since they could then have their 2 Dozers... Just in different bases... Just saying...

    This would allow people to manage their time so there are more new things going on. ie One long upgrade in one base and shorter ones in the other. Or at least stagger the upgrades so something new is happening.

    What happens to damaged units in your base? Do they have to be organized into platoons to be repaired? Or is there one huge base platoon that encompasses all units in your base? With 1500 space per platoon and 2600 space in base does this mean we have to keep reorganizing our base units to get them all repaired?

    The smaller platoon size also means decreased repair queue capacity since you can only repair one platoon at a time.

    Another huge problem with the decreased repair is that if you have units in your depos and you have say 10 depos attacked and have damaged units in each it will take forever to repair all the depos one at a time.

    Another huge advantage to the attackers, as you will have to spend hours keeping your depos defenders healthy instead of having fun.

    If you actually read, he has already answered this question way back on page 5

    "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."

    Overall, I am looking forward to the update. Admittedly, I would prefer being able to set up more than one platoon at a time for repair, but like with all changes to any game --I will adapt. On the question of another dozer, don't want one. The entire concept for upgrades, for me, is to be able to figure out which building should take priority. If they wanted to make it that easy then there would be one HUGE storage area for resources, 1 extra-large power plant, etc etc. Strategy combined with **** battles, or vice-versa, makes for great fun
