    Looking better, lacking 1/2 day of research tokens, but I think we can deal with that. So no Spirit CM this week?

    There is not an increase in the token limits.

    The Spirit will be part of the FM Overhaul.  So will be next week.

    Sound fair thank you very much 
    My opinion is neither copyrighted nor trademarked, and it's price competitive. If you like, I'll trade for one of yours.

    Can you confirm for us smaller players if the specific ship build token will be purchasable every week?  Suck as the icebreaker and monolith tokens? Or are these a one time get?

    so hows the difficulty of those new targets coming along?
    When it comes to Kixeye, hope for the best but expect the worse.

    Targets are still changing, points are still the same but we get to rely on a "random" 3-9 day token drop, great.

    But those possible 14 days is only after you have all Tier 5 prizes. With the new format, you can get the tokens every week.

    Could have saved everyone concerned a load of grief by just leaving well enough alone. We already know you aren't interested in really making things any easier. More useless garbage between us and the level 5 tokens, nice touch. as always time will tell.

    Tokens, on the lower levels, look obsolete to me. 
    a 1 day structure build token ? When i have a structure build cue pushing 2 years ?  
    a 1 day research token? This is very low looking at the research timers total and the amount of research to be done.. Yes, it isn't 2 years still easily above 6 months.. 
    and a 1 hour research token? Well this has always been useless..
    Please consider altering these to fit more with the time that you (kixeye) call for. 
                        -Eternally deep diving
                                           -Cuttlefish

    I have found the research tokens to be quite useful. 26 hours of research that I did not have before, but now it will be down to 13 hours believe, still half a day in the research of a 24 hour research is useful.

    Uranium is back in the lower tiers - good.
    Ship build token availability (if that is what 'build tokens' refer to) - jury is out until we see how they drop.
    Research and structure tokens are still halved - Not good.
    Targets needed to hit to gain same prizes - still more targets not good.
    Time to do this chore - looks unchanged - jury out until we see the targets
    Target difficulty - Not good that we aren't seeing these targets early, makes me leery.

    So some of the concerns were addressed. This is good. I hope you guys continue to evaluate the feedback you have been given by the community. Sure, the change is inevitable, but there are good ways to implement them and bad. This started off very bad. Not sure it's swung fully into acceptable yet, but we'll see I guess.

    I am ambivalent about using chests, not a huge fan of randomness, but I can see that is a fight not worth fighting compared to the other issues.

    i hope the damage taken in the 89 is the same as the current 88; or slightly less
    COOT is recruiting!!
