    The repair is one platoon at a time?... I think it would be difficult, and you have to visit your base and click every single platoon that is damage to be repaired...

    Kixeye don't spend as much time in the games as we do (Spending time making updates, bug fixes, pushing paper, etc). As such we know what strategies, tactics and tricks are important to keep in the game

    Tom, trying to be reasonable here but being that their is 19 pages of almost all negative comments about this one portion of the update does it not warrant you guys to take a look and possibly do the hotfix you spoke of earlier. I am more than willing to give this all a shot and it will definately make me even more cautious in regards to my attacks and making sure my platoons are protected while traveling but, this does seem to really hurt the 9-5 working people. Love what you all have done but I do ask that you guys at least take it back to the table for a last minute huddle to put the hotfix or a queu system in place ASAP.
    Looks like a sword to me, you have a filthy mind.

    I don't work for Kixeye, so I can't directly comment on what will or won't happen within any of their games. But from what David's said they will try and add this in as soon as is possible

    How about a 2nd dozer once you get past lvl 20 the times get unreasonably long for upgrade . being able to upgrade 2 base units at once would be good for the game.

    One of the main reasons I stopped playing battle pirates is that took to long to upgrade stuff and move around the map

    keep waiting....you may get it as a christmas present LOL. From what I hear if you didnt get it during the event (months ago) you have to wait for general release...which still has not occured.

    For those critisizing fully upgraded MEGA TANK power
    1) if you didn't take the time and effort to get there you really have no point to make. Keep on being envious.
    2) I can destroy any rogue base with one MEGA TANK and my WarHawks. What I really hate is all the squad management the update entails.
    As a software engineer my self I can appreciate the need for constant squads for the game servers. It will drastically reduce traffic and processing requirements.
    But the one at the time repair thing is wrong and sends the wrong message to players about kixeye intentions.
    I understand they plan to hotfix this later but the fact this was not thought of and designed from the inception of the update is suspicious.

    "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 >:(

    I couldn't agree more Joshua! Why would you do this Kixeye!? I loved being able to cue everything up to repair so the next time I was on I would be back up and running. I love and play Battle Pirates but I still can't stand the fact that there isn't a "repair all" feature for my fleets in BP. Why would you remove a great feature like this from WC!? I am excited about the planned updates in this release but getting rid of my ability to cue up all my units for repair is a big step in the wrong direction in my opinion.

    Maybe if enough of the War Commander community complains about this Kixeye will change it back like they did for the Battle Pirates community when everyone pissed and moaned about stuff from BP's huge update.

    I like the direction Kixeye is headed with platoon setup and being able to repair inside the deposits they are guarding. Persistent infantry is great and I love that persistent aircraft is on its way soon too. Keep up the good work Kixeye but please give me back my repair all option for my platoons.

    i notice that the video didnt say anything about the repairing single platoon side of things i prefer the (all repairs in one go), all you had to do to make it efficient was line them in the order you wanted now your gonna log out and still have a lot of damaged units when you log back in js like battle pirates i dont understand how this is an improvement especially for the lower level players who have small platoon capacities and no depos to utilize the new depo repair function, i understand that this will make low level players take depos but at the same time if they take a depo to utilize the new function and the level 30 decides to take it back the platoon is destroyed and returns to base un-repaired anyway the same as now SO WHATS THE FRAGGIN POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yours passionately Wivadee

    please do not be a smart ****, Gatling Guns are not available to every body, only people that played in the game during the last contest when they were awarded to people that scored enough points it is the same now as not EVERY player is entitled to the ELITE WARHAWKES, the had to compete in the last comp and perform well enough to earn them. There is no need for the sarcasm here.

    No Sarcasm, but if you were unlucky enough to join late, you cant get the Gatling or Elite Warhawkes etc, and you cant even work towards getting them. So the strong get stronger and the weak stay weak. I work towards higher levels and still will be unable to compete. Surely having to work towards these items is benificial? i want access to better weapons, yet no matter what level i am or how many resources i cant have them? fair? not!!!!!!!!

    Nukes would be cool!

    Do them like Starcraft, you drop them from the attack screen but you probably don't want to deploy your units at this time. Then the immediate area gets like 10000 damage, the next ring around that maybe 5000, and farther out gets only 1000, and anything on the screen gets 200 or something like this....

    It doesn't necessarily need to out and out destroy the entire base 100% from the world map.

    I also think for the repairs is to have multiple units repairing simultaneously rather than just one at a time because for larger units like tanks take a lifetime and a half to repair and your trying to get tht last attack in before bed or about to level up but all your units are damaged lol so you can't do nothing and off too bed disappointed. And it could be a certain number of units at the same time then queue up behind those your chosen units to repair.

    this new patch is a joke, kixeye maybe you should stop listening to the SH***Y players and listen to some good one for once, persistant infantry lol, what a joke , oh this rifleman stepped on a shaped charge, lets put him back togeather. This isn't the million dollar man, and repairs at deposits, you want to cut back repair time by 60% here is what you do, make the warfactory repair multiple units at once, duuuhhhhhh. i swear you guys get your patch ideas from blizzard. What does the deployment cap have to do with resource storage....NOTHING, you want to command more units, then upgrade your comm center, makes sense. you want to deploy more units then upgrade staging area...duuhhhhhh. Infantry and vehicles have nothing to do with metal and oil storage, what are they doing swimming in the oil tanks. This patch is laughable, get some brains kixeye really please do. so far a potatoe has a higher IQ then your team that thought of these ideas.

    When they are refering to "storage" in this thread they are talking about unit storage which in effect is what the staging area is. So before you get all high and mighty how about you get a clue, moron.

    THAT is the point. I cant even get the better weaponry ie hawks, gatling etc due to joining late, yet the upgrade will allow people to repair EVERYTHING??? Repair times will be quicker so i cant even utilise THEIR rebuild time to my advantage???

    I think most concerns are unified around the new repair system. All other improvements are mostly appreciated.
    I don't think, like Kixeye said, that the new repair is a "time saver". I'll save some seconds and some clicks on the first repair, but on the other hand I'll lose hours when I cannot be around to repair the next platoon and then I'll have to come back to click on another platoon to repair - more clicks. Queueing is fun. Forcing the players to do a menial task frequently is not :(
    What if we could queue platoons? Shouldn't be so big a change to the UI as to make it overly complicated.
    But for the rest, great improvements.

    I think the infantry should have a killed how many time limit. Like if you have a heavy gunner and he dies he should have 2 more lifes (etc) that what i think. but the air it should have already been like vehicles. But if anyone know me i am very much a **** :) Hope someone goes more into detail

    ttyl

    no infantry must need to be killed only hercules must need to be take back to the live because he is more machine than a human ;)
