    Will there be lower tier repair reductions coming any time soon? I know a fully kitted T7 cruiser fleet and T5 cruiser fleet are about the same for repairs despite being dramatically different in power levels.

    Really great patch. I was confident the orator could beat the segfault before, but with all the bonuses listed in the notes, i dont think the seg could even run from a fight from orator. Cool we are getting 2 ships that can spawn escorts in one patch, the myrs spawning blight nebulas for the aerico to trigger its overdrives is honestly geneuis, and might be op. The build time reduction, finally... its great to see them changed to much more reasonable times. Alien thonian armor is finally here, i remember seeing a post somewhere asking for this, glad youre listening.

    sorta depends where the blight fields spawn  for the Aerico and the ships maneuverability  to get into them

    same for PL atrophy

    Is it safe to expect lower repair times in the future? I don't know what your thoughts on this are but 5 minutes of fun leading to 24 hours of waiting for repairs is kinda cruel since it's a fun game.

    Phase hacking!! This is exactly what Altairians need, at least if it is what I think it is. All in all I'm looking forward to both the Altairian dreadnought and the new Umbra ship.

    Glad to see the build time reductions have been implemented. 2hr build time for Tornado frigate, wow! I'd be tempted to build a few more fleets of them if CW was still a thing.

    All we need is repair and refit time reductions in line with build, research and crafting time reductions

    We actually already got some refit reductions. Some of the older xeon weapons for example used to take a LOT longer to fit than they do now. I actually think it's all fairly reasonable now. I actually am having trouble keeping up with enough crafting materials for the ships I've been able to build and fit.

    Agree on the repair times though...

    sounds good but we really really need repair time reduced like 80%. How about some serious base love too.

    REALLY Pleased to hear of the time reductions, on current standards to research the Lance to MK III it takes around 5 days to research, While the Beserker to Mk III takes only 1 day and 12 hours.

    I am glad you guys are excited about the current patch. Some of those balance updates includes a long amount of work by the entire team, and I am excited that we could finally deliver on one of the promises I made with my last State of the Game posts about reduced build times. :) 

    We are reviewing repair times and we have plans for base updates as well in our future road-map.

    You may want to try and restart the servers.

    PvE fleets spawn erratically and all over the place, and player fleets are spinning in circles. Mines in-base don't have damage areas, and the fleet menu shows all fleets as if they're either dead or damaged.

    Edit: Can't open Ship Factory either.

    The more I look around, the weirder it gets. This is from an alt of mine:



    That's a lot of XP to get to next level. I wonder how many years that will take. :D

    I’m also fairly sure it had several things upgrading and building. It seems everything has been canceled.

    I use a very high pixel count system (5K).  Vega used to display great, making good scalable use of the pixels. it doesn't do that anymore. now it "stretches' a much lower number of pixels to cover my display.

    Yea, what I thought, but sadly it'll probably be fixed.

    The lack of communication is a bit unsettling, though. Even Kix doesn't usually take this long to inform their players, so this likely doesn't bode well.
