    My concern is that units don't repair automatically at your base. You must go back every so many hours depending on the damaged units. This is an inconvenience for people that can't come back repeatedly to continue to fix all units. Could you do something that could allow for your units in storage to fix automatically.

    With exception they take longer when being fixed in storage. When fixed in platoons they are faster.
    Thank You !!!

    Actually, they do not repair at all when in storage, or at least are not supposed to

    Just want to say Kixeye, I LOVE THIS GAME! Most of the new updates are great, and much more conveinant! The only problem that I have and extremely DO NOT LIKE is repairing platoons ONE platoon are a time! It is driving me insane. Being a Firefighter/Rescue Tech full time and a part time Officer of the Law (Deputy), this is extremely frustrating! Mostly due to the fact, that, well I am not home or near a computer every 4-8 hours to start repairing other Platoons. In fact some days, in cases where we have Brush Fires/Woods Fires, I will be gone for at minimum 4 days to, in extreme cases 3-4 weeks. Is there anyway that in the new update that is or will be possible to select a "Repair all platoons" even if it takes longer than repairing one at a time. I would most certainly use this, especially during our "Fire Season/Dry Season". Anyway this is just my two cents. It would be very much appreciated to me and I'm sure many others that do not always have access to a computer at certain times, or one (a computer) that will allow this game to be played. As being a Town and State Employee, there are blocks on Facebook and almost if not all games...For obvious reasons, lol. Anyway Thanks FOR CREATING THIS AWESOME GAME!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!! JUST WISH THIS ONE LITTLE THING COULD BE CHANGED...JUST CONSIDER YOUR LOCAL FIREFIGHTERS and/or PUBLIC SERVICE Employees about updates such as mention above. (ONLY REPAIRING ONE PLATOON AT A TIME) I thank you for everything about this game!
    Sincerly,

    Ok

    This, yes repair thing, is just about the worst upgrade ever. Have you not learnt from when the last upgrade came in and limited things to about 50 units in the repair queue, and all the confusion this caused.

    Anyhow, this it what i think should happen, or be in a future upgrade

    Dead units should die, be destroyed, and not repairable, including men, tanks, and planes. Damaged units should be repairable. This will make it more realistic, and cause players to attack more tactically.

    Damaged units on repair should have an option to speed the process up, by using more oil and metal, For a 10% speed up, requires a 10% more resources, 50% speed up, requires 50% more, and so on.

    Also, this is a must, when a lower level player hits your depos, or platoons, we should be allowed to hit this players base, for a limited time for revenge. This will stop low level players hitting high level one, when we cant do anything about it.

    Please, get this repair thing, with one platoon repair only sorted, it is killing the game.

    but i bury my dead thing at the pet cemetery.......:(

    If this is the case it will be extremely annoying and a very bad update....there is no point to it at all...

    I agree, this update should have included the option to queue up each platton in the order that you want them to be repaired. Also, if you only wanted some of the platoons, and not all of them repaired, you could have the option of deciding how many palttons to queue up. Kixeye, the overall update was good, but this recommnedation should have been a no-brainer to include in the update.

    I'm trying to maintain an optimistic attitude but the repairs as has been mentioned is just brutal. I've become a base camper waiting for my bigger platoons to repair. I can't stack the platoons to repair and I have to create a platoon for my staging area in case those guys are damaged. The platoons are nice but the upgrade was lacking in the repercussions of repairing damaged platoons.

    people play this game so they can attack things...If the repair is going to be like this any longer there is no point in playing. Any other game on FB (and theyre all basically set up the same way) you would come back to it next time you get on FB and you have a bunch of things to do until you log off and come back later. With this update, I come back to FB after a few hours and all i can do in War Commander is click another platoon to heal. Then log off and wait until next time...I have 10 platoons that are all damaged and I have been healing them for the past 3 days and haven't done much of anything else. I liked leaving for a few hours to let my units heal, and then coming back to healthy platoons and I can start attacking things again.

    I get it, you want people to pay..but you have to think..is this game really worth paying for for some people when there are other games just as fun (now they are way more fun) than War Commander?

    I think war commander increasingly unattractive and boring, because several things:
    A. troops who have died beyond repair, allowing players to attack without calculation and without risk.
    2. I think the harder the game will be more challenging and not boring. I want to be a drum major war games more realistic like red alert. thank you:o

    ONE thing you did NOT mention that came along with this "update" is that now you can not attack a platoon without losing DP Protection. This is crap. This one change alone will RUIN this game. This change allows higher level players to bully someone 4 levels down, and leaves the lower level player NO recourse. You used to be able to start rebuilding, then go after that person's platoons while rebuilding. Now you can not. If you come out of DP, then kill that person's platoons, they just flatten your base again. And it's very tough to retaliate by hitting a base 4 levels above you -- it's a BIG difference.

    I am put in DP almost immediately when I come out, and now I am left with NO fun in the game, unless I want my base in a constant state of repair, and additionally, my production and healing stopped every time my base is hit. This is a BIG MISTAKE, Kixeye. Please fix this, and make it so that platoons can still be attacked without losing DP Protection. :confused:

    Can someone tell me is it just me or everyone else that the platoons don't auto-repair, which is really annoying cause I have to get on everyday only to see that the platoon I clicked to repair was the only one that repaired and everything else is unrepaired, which heavily damages my attacking capabilities.

    No sorry, i don't agree with you on this, this is a good idea, and much needed. This now stops low levels attacking high levels platoons. I would also like to see, for example, if a level 9 attacks a level 29 platoon, then that level 29 should be allowed to attack this level 9 base, for a revenge attack.

    When a base is put in DP, you know you have protection, so you can keep attacking platoons, without any revenge, for the length of Damage Protection, so i say, about time on this, and please, lets have the revenge is sweet on low levels, if they want to attack, lets show them what it will mean if they do.

    i have a suggestion: instead of throwing away all the update, wich contains MANY good things, K.E. programmers could create a "special platoon", as "Base Defenders" is, call it "Repair Bay", give it a capacity of 15,000, so that people can park tanks to fix overnight and have them back renewed at morning

    Get the repair system back up to par, i can't get anything repaired, i set my platoon to be repaired, and 8 hrs later , and sign off, nothing gets repaired. What a monet making scheme kixeye has developed, this sucks big time, get it fixed, or people are going to move on to another game.
    We have a rouge operation coming, and i got 80 hrs of repair, and can not stay on line that long, \

    i enjoy the game, but, this is totally unfair to old players.........

    great idea i'd love that concept! As long as its repairing capable and not counting as mainbase defense i'd love that idea!
