Well considering there is t7 equipment being effected in there it needs to be fixed.
Well fixing the retrofit lab would be a "quality of life improvement". once again, they aren't caring about the non-coiners or even the non-heavy coiner population. T7 and below, they wish they could wipe out probably, and make T8 either Pay to get, or leave the game, so long as the heavy coiners don't leave, they don't lose out on much money, if any. they don't want to improve "quality of life" for the non-coiners, who make up the majority of players using the older tech.
