Pretty simple question....

The time token market opened when the SHIP riot was on as per normal, then it was supposed to return yesterday during the MODULE Riot.

It did not appear.... strange ... yes so i waited and thought maybe it would open today.... nope

i had planned to redeem about 700 BA on build/refit tokens to assist in building what is about a 8-10 build for the PLEXUS.....

I think the player would like some transparency as to why this market has not appeared and if it is returning or something official.

as it stands right now the only real items to be purchased with BA are OLD ship resistors that are over 2 years old and too expensive and redundant in today's game

    Hey Phil,

    When the Time Token market was originally scheduled, it was set very far in advance on a recurring basis. We looked into this last night and it appears this last time the Time Token Market ran was the last occurrence. There are no plans to renew this currently, however other options for using Blood Amber are going to be looked into.

    I knew that you guys were moving away from tokens but... **** hell the tokens were the only thing worth spending BA on.
    Also the refit tokens and module tokens are very valued especially with the not-yet-on-par-refit times and the long module upgrade times.
    What we would be more than willing to spend BA on are t7 reusables and the current resistors for example, like all the different Altairian resistors so that we dont have to depend on the correct resistor to show up in events once every blue moon.

    If you could, I would skip over Alterians as fast as you can since Pharmrkon and Umdra are better overall ships. Maybe add these techs BPs to the So that players can spend BA on that as well. Thanks CM Dade Murphy in advance for update on the status of stores.

    Simple solution - reinstate it until you have done your job and given BA a purpose. That could take years....

    While you guys think of what to do with BA next, put the Time Token store back so we don't have to miss daily missions for as long as you decide what to do with it.
    Or rather, why don't you just make Time Token store permanently available so we have the option of spending BA on it or whatever you think of in the future?

    Hi Guys I don't post much here but:  I have talked with my Alliances and until another use is decided for Blood Amber (BA) it's important to turn the Tokens back on.  That was for nearly everyone the only reason to participate in collecting Blood Amber (BA).

    It gave people a reason to do Daily Missions again.  We can't keep losing players.

    Thank You

    Hey Phil,

      however other options for using Blood Amber are going to be looked into.
    Please take the  consideration to poll the players in regard  to what we  want to spend it on

    Refit/build  tokens were  very  valuable to EVERY  level of players  it is nothing of value is available for players  to use our free currency  on.

    -Level 4 RI s come to mind
    -repair tokens

    Perhaps everyone can leave a comment on what they would  like to be able to use blood amber on

    KIXEYE neglects to announce important changes.
    Did you write a change schedule somewhere? . With small letters.
    Most players didn't know that.

    And as many have said, the value of Blood Amber is a crash.
    You should remove the time token after showing other uses for Blood Amber.

    Daddy Murphy is not guilty of what is happening here! There is somebody in Kixeye who is erasing with the other hand what writes with one hand!

    As I said, there must be somebody who is falling slowlyslowly into the fire's pile while says "Precious!"

    Remove the ship token riots, and the ship build / refit tokens from the BA shop as soon as you release a popular ship that most players will want to build? Smells like a money grab to me! Seems like the new management is working like the old management...so, business as usual!

    We're already short on players.  We're gonna lose even more players now because of this.  The tokens gave them a reason to log in everyday and participate

    Please answer why you will  reduce the number of players.

    ・Removed the Altairian token from the main event.
    ・ The alliance war  ShipBuild / Refit token has been dedicated to Marauder.
    ・Removed ShipBuild / Refit tokens from the shop. ← New!

    Many players don't like it.
    Do you want to die? .

    I am disgusted that you guys would discontinue ship token riots, refit and repair times are way to dam  high and doing this will make the game a lot more expensive, it was bad enough you stopped offering ship refit token offers and are trying to phase out all time tokens, Kixeye gave them to us as a compromise as for years we asked for a ship refit bay and kixeye didnt want to give it to us so time tokens were introduced, i find this like a slap in the face of loyal players, we NEED these time reductions otherwise the game is way to expensive or takes forever to have the right ships fitted. Please if you need to remove time tokens, give us a refit bay, its something the whole player base has been begging for for years. Please do the right thing here.

    how about as a compromise, Kixeye reinstate either the Ship Riot and or the Time Token Store (including SHIP based tokens) until the NEW and improved market can be released

    about 3 weeks ago Shadowraith (executive producer VC) had mentioned that the SHIP RIPOT was going to end and i thought we had changed his mind

    TBH i thought that we had convinced him to keep the riot due to the refit times still being high but the removal of the BA MARKET is rediculous.

    The market is only open every other day and you can only claim/collect 30 BA each day so it will take you 4 days to collect enough BA to redeem a 12 hour build/refit token

    A coiner will coin these ships/fleets in any case so all you are really doing is widening the gap between coiner v non coiner

    The current markets should not have been removed until the new one was ready... this is more of the point

    These changes are only negatively impacting all your non coiner player base... You'll never get a shiny penny from me because of every shady thing you do to the player base. Taking away the ship token riot just shows how little the new owners care about bases if the module token riot remains... Why create such discontent with so many players all the time? Why remove useful features from the game, stuff that people look forward to? A daily login bonus of 10 blood Amber, big deal, it doesn't cost you anything to give us that but we lap it up like abused dogs that haven't eaten for a week...

    I'm not trying to be offensive nor trying to criticise the company itself.But the removal of token market and riots is a too early move.Yes you are going to reduce the times but when are these actually going to happen? 

    The token riots and token markets were a win win for everyone,both for players and Kix.Players could get tokens to speed up their builds while Kix could enjoy the cash they get from players when they buy coins to repair their ships and do riots or spend coins and get the tokens.
    For some random reason they choose the path that no one will win but lose instead...at least they gave us free Bastions to cover this up.

    but 99% of the time that  is how kixeye does things
    - not testing
    -not replacing what is taken away

    does no one see patterns yet

    I've never done this before; but I think it's time to address Daddy Murphy's answer as an experienced situation I've been witness a lot time ago! Here's the proof! And it's easy to understand who is Kixeye's command staff and who's CMDW...

    I don’t really care about this ship tokens, ik you’re trying make people buy coins. I mean it wouldn’t make any difference when you have coiners who refund a third of their money when buying coins and still have the full amount of coins. But anyways Game bores me to death gonna quit soon.

    This has to be the worst answer ever. He's basically saying, "the Time Token market is gone. Coin or quit."
    Nice going guys.

    Yeah cool, thanks for the heads up bro, I'll spend that extra time and money playing some games that don't try and mind-f**k me out of my money from developers that want to make their players happy instead of pissing them off at every turn.   You guys need to pull your heads out of your **** if you want to keep this cash cow going, you don't take things away from people if you want to keep them happy.  Whatever, I'll vote with my wallet.
