Chris/Kixeye-years ago you introduced repair specialists that could be researched in the labs that would reduce the repair on a given hull varying on the Hull and the VXP rank. The reduction in repair times varied from 20-40%. Why not reintroduce these? You already have this tech in place and it would certainly help with the repair times(non-Conqueror hulls). Reducing those older hulls by 40% would make a lot of players happy. Once the raid format changes why not add the ships into this que? I just don't see a positive reaction to these new FvF hulls if the repair time remains the typical 3-4 HOURS per ship. It simply is no fun spending 25-40 Gold to repair a fleet that might be dead in a few seconds. I wouldn't think many would be interested. Your choice though. You say you listen to the players-sometimes I think you half-way listen but you pass up MANY MANY good ideas I have seen come through that would make the vast majority of players happy. The logic is reduce the costs to MORE will coin then just whales. The coin sales are great Kixeye! I will give credit where it's due! But consider these other ideas-even coins sales won't entice a lot of players to spend large amounts for repair on FvF.

    That sounds good, they should also reintroduce the R&D levels:
    More build/repair reduces,

    Bat ray repair times are nuts its a good 14 hours for one fleet having this would be very useful puts me off using them due to the long repair time.

    I kind of think that Kixeye already knows the repair times on hulls and that it is of them designing  them to take that amount of time. I would not complain about the idea but also do not think that it would ever come or like last time, just be a band-aid. I would think that be playing around with numbers and programming that repair times could be shortened by  adjusting the  parameters that bring the repair  of the hull to that specific time needed to repair.
     Maybe a good way to  shorten repair time is for all of us to decide not to coin repairs on he fleets. Conqueror fleets fix fast and cheap. The other ships only have side-lined purposes now and can be planned accordingly. TLC are optional to play and expeditions return the ships fully repaired. It is kind of up to us  when we play the game to decide on what we need to do in it that allows us to have fun at what ever level of play that we do.
    I cannot teach anybody anything.

    While I support your idea for not coining these FvF ships if the repair time is long-and knowing Kixeye, they will be-there are no doubt PLENTY of multi-millionaires that play this game who literally don't care if it costs $20 US to coin the fleet because money isn't an issue. THEY are what Kixeye primarily caters to and we already know this. So I have a feeling they will be the only ones doing those activities. Remember the players set the repair times, not Kixeye. THey will charge whatever the whales are willing to pay and then drop it slightly and say it's good for everyone.

    not sure where you are getting they are asking for more chores as both of them are asking about researches which are not chores.

    His proposal is suggesting research which is essentially just click and wait.
    The FM and events are what I would consider chores. How would this be a chore?

    I think Kix needs to go back to the way they used to repair the fleet verses how they currently repair them. When a fleet used to repair, every ship repaired equally instead of one ship at a time, starting with the first ship like it is now. Every ship should show equal amount of repair as the fleet repairs!
