Please add a SHIP REFIT STATION to our bases cause while building 1 ship it would be a lot more affective to have a separate one just for refits instead of having to wait weeks for 1 ship to be done... We could have 1 for building and the other for refits.. i'm like a lot of others out there that got ships waiting to be refitted but every time we try and refit there is another ship we need to build....

PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME GIVE US A .........SHIP REFIT STATION........

    Of all the time tokens, build and refit are the only ones with an overlapping structure.

    Build tokens are offered freely during events, but refits are not. Hulls are offered freely but with no real way to discount their refitting.

    If refitting isn't such a priority for the dev team, can't the players have an easier way to fit their equipment than juggling between building new ships they can discount heavily or refitting existing or newly won hulls at no discount?

    I'd be happy if it were just a factory token instead of build tokens and refit tokens.

    Falls on deaf ears I guess. I haven't seen any responses from the CM.

    will never happen unfortunately

    usually gets asked each month

    and kix has stated every single time 'not gonna happen'

    why? pure and simple greed/profit basically
    Sarcasm is implied where you think it is implied.

    yeah because it's the single most requested feature that the devs have continually ignored. and they wonder why player numbers are dropping?  

    *shakes head*  
    also quit it with the snarky comments EVERY TIME this topic comes up, Andrea.   It really doesn't help and it just makes you look like a Kix shill.

    You must be new here.
    There are no refit bays.

    VEGA security: active.

    KIXEYE implemented tokens to address the problem of build/refit times, something the refit bay was meant to solve. Be grateful they implemented something to alleviate the matter.

    Refit bay is not happening. Stop asking for it.

    Why should we be grateful for refit tokens that expire? They only introduced them because the game was dying because they killed it.

    ways to look at this.

    1. We get free hulls that only need time to farm and not coin.
    2. We get free hulls but only 2 events offer refit credits. Alliance wars and riot token event. So maybe it’s not all bad because 50% of something is better then 100% of nothing.

    Time tokens are there, and was said over and over that no refit bay will happen, well you are free to insult and keep talking about something that will not happen, you got time tokens and that is with what you have to play with... like it or not.

    But of course, whatever is not for free or trying to be logic means to be a kix shill, i am fine with that, you should ask yourself why you want all the goodies for free... and what is your life if everything should be given to you for free...

    Some maths...

    1 riot every week, 4 days of refitting 
    2 decimation per month, 2 days of built
    8 alien strikes per month, 2 days of built
    Total in one month is 16 days of refitting, and  20 days built....

    Hey is more than 1 month, so an extra bay is not needed, we got 36 days of tokens per month... but of course we need to work for them...

    This. And you get the build & refit discounts as well. So plan ahead and its not an issue. It's an RTS. Real Time Strategy!

    WOW... this is a unique idea... why we did not think about that long ago... 

    So you are saying we trade the time tokens for this new building? is that right?

    lol, sure you can do all of this.  Is this game your life? are you living in it everyday for more than 8 hours?  Maybe you should spend sometime doing other things.  Get a job, move out mom's basement, maybe find a girlfriend.

    So what's the point of earning new ships if I can't fit them because of the builds I'm in the middle of.

    Sure, not a new story and it's not a new struggle. Dynamics are new now.

    I can get new ships then pay/wait on refits.

    Or I can build new ships and earn build tokens to reduce build times.

    I can't expect to do both. I can decide maybe I'll just pop in for build tokens or I can pop in for new hulls. But there's no real point to do both...unless I plan on dropping ongoing cash for a game whose CM has admitted to a significant and ongoing decline in participants. Why would that make sense?

    Merging all the refit threads is a good idea, however don’t close and lock the thread afterwards... or we will just see new threads about it. Kix says NO! That doesn’t mean that the players aren’t going to still want it.
    If players ask about a feature for long enough, a smart company would start to look at what their customers are requesting, and attempt to find someway to deliver for their customers.

    They tend to be posted so far apart that to merge them gets tedious (an older thread might be buried under several other pages of posts).  Besides that, merging them usually gives "zombie status" to the older thread.

    Just allow the fleet bay the ability to refit weapons and the special slot only. And if you are refitting and repairing at the same time, then add 20% more time to the refit. Problem solved.

    Nothing, you are exactly right, you should be able to do what you want. If you coin to buy a new axis fleet over the Christmas, then you will have an easier time to farm the sector strike for T5 tier if you did not have already.

    It's hard for players to go from T4 to T5, and then from T5 to T6 is even more difficult. 1 day event with shrinking intel does not help the situation for the non coiners.  That's all

    There was a thread [email protected] was talking about the reason for not having a refit bay. One of them been it will give coiner a higher advantage over the non-coiners.  

    This is certainly true.  But they don't understand the refit bay is going to help non-coiner even more.  The game is played mostly by the non-coiners. If non-coiners stop playing, then the coiners will definitely leave, therefore no more support for the game.  

    Help the non-coiners catch up faster and make the game a little easier for the lower tier is gong to benefit the game.

    non-coiners are the little fish, the coiners are the sharks prey on the little fish. If there are no little fish in the sea, the sharks are dead, and so is the sea.

    Come on! Kixeye, help the little guys, and they will love you back, and spend a little too.
