Suggestions for additional sources of revenue for KIXEYE

Greetings,

From what some of my alliancemates and friends who play VEGA have told me, there is a rumor going around that KIXEYE is making event fleets incredibly difficult to try and encourage the use of coin to speed up repairs in order to encourage players to purchase coins. My own experiences with this fleet lead me to suggest this might be the case, though it may just me being terrible at the game :P,  however instead of complaining I wanted to suggest a few alternatives for services and features that would allow KIXEYE to generate more revenue while keeping event fleets at a level where a newer player can still participate without feeling like they need to spend all day every day farming in order to get the prizes they want.

1. A paid "Premium" mode which allows for all or some of the following bonuses:
+1 ships being built at the same time
+1 Structures being built and/or upgraded at the same time
+1 repairs happening at the same time
+10 minutes free repair (up to 15 minute total)
+10% resource yield (either in general, or just from resource buildings within the base)
+500 monthly stipend of coin
and a 24 - 48 hour build queue (so you can queue things to build up up 24 - 48 hours, so if you have a bunch of little things to build you can queue them up instead of spending the time waiting until you can build them)

For this I would easily pay 6.99 a month USD, as I know would several of my friends who play VEGA

Also other potential sources of revenue could include:

Custom ship skins / color templates
Different base skins / building designs


Finally, this next one could be a free update to everyone:
The ability to set Captains or admirals to command a fleet, each commander has unique bonuses (+10% DPS, +5% all resistances, + 20 m/s movement speed, etc,) which would provide those ships within that fleet their bonuses, players could acquire these admirals in events, or via Coin. which would help facilitate the purchasing of coin.


I hope some of these ideas could be of use to the development team when moving forward with Vega Conflict!

Thank you for reading and for your consideration.

    and... why should we pay fot this?
    like... wut?

    we been asking for queues and extra refit and build slots. u suggesting thee years of asking would be implemented into a pay method???
    uhm.. no thank you. i want some of these features in the game without having to pay for them. the advantage of Pay to win is getting bigger with your idea.

    orry but i have to say paying for options we allready asked for is a no go.

    Premium... buy coins. Ship/base skins... that would be a alright coin feature if the coin price isnt ridiculous. Captains... um HOW MANY games have captains that DONT NEED money to get? Seriously i play one game which has all my fleets using S ranked captains and i didnt pay a cent

    The solution is reasonable but somewhat complicated. Here is a simpler one:
    • Offer a monthly subscription model with 10% growth and various tiers starting at $5; $5/month will give you 500 coins the first month, 550 the second, then 600, 650... this will reward long-time subscribers.
    • Offer a separate refit bay for (say) 500 coins. IIRC, LXC refused because it would "change up the build times", then the rebalance came along and they changed the build times anyway.

    They reduced build times... the refit bay wouldve INCREASED build times
