This is what you think is important to work on? Your player base is in mass exodus mode and displaying your vip rank is something you think we want? I guess this is something that might be cool for the 3 or 4 whales left that have real life personal worth issues but for the 99% of your customer base, this is yet another slap in the face.
How about you work on drastically lowering build times, drastically lowering repair times, incorporate a refit bay, drastically lowering your coin "deals"...LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMER BASE??? Why is this so hard for you to see? Do these very simple things and your income will grow...at this point, what do you have to lose?
