Can we get the limit increased on the 1 & 2 day structure build tokens please since so many of the TLC reruns have them in the prizes and if not then I should be able to skip the prize pack since I can't actually win anything in it.

    Just use your tokens. If you don't need to use tokens then hey, lucky you.

    Good point. If we already have the BPs and token capacity is full, the PP should be regarded as completed.

    Skip the prize pack?
    And the repair that might go along with it?

    I think the point is we all want to save tokens we won from these TLCs. Some people spent gold repairing their fleets getting through these TLCs. I know I spent some gold. And to your comment specs, some of us don't (at the moment) have any real need to upgrade or change anything on our bases so no need to spend the tokens atm. Therefore, it'd be nice to save them.
    HULLS WON:
    90% + of all hulls/limited offered ever :)

    Some places visited: 34, 113, 175, 222, 224, 228, 328, 344, 359, 362, 391, 444, 446, 467, 475, and 493

    Or at least just being able to skip past the PP.

    Yes, thank you nrubnus. If you want me to spend the tokens then give me something to spend them on or allow me to save more for future use or lastly if not then the prize pack should be marked as completed as they have in the past when all the prizes in a specific prize pack were already in inventory. As it is I have TLC reruns to run but no reason to run them....and if I'm not running TLC's then there will be no ships to repair which I guess will save me coin instead of spending coin.

    i cannot believe kixeye would suddenly introduce token limits.

    this is an unbelievable outrage.

    You can save up to 10 days from 2 days tokens and what 2 days from 1 day tokens? 12 days of tokens is quite a bit to have sitting around.

    If I do not need to use them I get time to do other things than hit TLC's.

    Well there are some things I do want from the TLCs like extra build or VXP tokens for hulls I haven't built yet but have the BP from the previous iteration of what ever TLC I'm doing "again". But when I do work on these TLCs and see that there are (for example) 4 x 2 day structural tokens available..well the first thing I do is look at my base and see how I could spend 4 out of the 5 I already have saved up and then I realize I have base parts too... so I really have to come up with a good refit or upgrade to even be able to spend one 2 day token (let alone 4). I actually just did that today with the hunger TLC structural tokens I won....I was able to spend one 2 day token on a turret refit that (after base parts) cost only 1.7 days..but eh..close enough right? :)

     Anyways, from your attitude on this, I'm guessing the OPs request and our reasoning over this don't mean squat to you or Kix.

    We have been flooded with build tokens recently. In another thread I made a suggestion and I will refine it here. As an example in the Plunder campaign we are to use Skirmish hulls. I suggest the reward be some 1 day ship build tokens vice structure build tokens. Prize pack 1 would reward a 1 day Hw build token. PP2 reward a 1 day Tideseeker build token. That way we could get these ships refitted (albeit slowly) without using shipyard time which is already backed up with FM fleet builds, raid fleet builds, base defense fleet builds and base hitting fleet builds. The mechanics behind building ships to play this game are really stretching the limits of incredulity. I think I have previously mentioned the ship build and ship repair times are to **** high. Carry on.

    I just want to mention that I am unable to use Tokens to speed up my Dock equipment upgrade. I wonder why?

    I feel bad for wasting build token, but at least that means my base is maxed out.

    I'm in the same boat. Everything is maxed out that so I found I can equip my dock. Had to use base parts for that.

    The POINT is we would like to be in control of our pay style, why spend when we don't want to say on a 4d upgrade when we have a 22 or 40 day build coming up with out Ship Yards? Also, why have to spend our tokens for ship builds immediately from FM,, ANY TOKENS we have should have a large if not unlimited stack. Look at the fleet specific ones,, 15 of 99... thank you for that, but it'd be nice for all of them.

    Not necessarily maxed out,, You  may need a few day upgrade on one thing, then have a HUGE build coming, like our SHIP YARD, who the **** can go 22 days without building a hull, not me, that's for damned sure. But I'm trying it,, have to get it built so I can start my LONG **** build on the Conq yard. 
    I know you can shorten by just  a few days using FM tokens,, hopefully but still way to long to be dormant in fleet builds in this damned game. 
    I guess we're lucky they don't stop repairs while upgrading Dock,, ROTFLMAO.

    there is so much to build and equip that I have not run into the problem of wanting to save tokens.

    as far as the attitude of anyone else? I cannot speak to that as i am not privy to their thoughts. But, if i had to hazard a guess based on the way I view the world? I would say, if they wanted us to hold 200+ days they would have increased the amount we could hold at one time.

    Some of us try to plan out building upgrades to minimize the impact on the game. The shipyard is a vital part of the game and the critical path that determines player growth. With the latest upgrade taking 12+ days with an officer and longer without, it would be good to have that many build tokens around so as not to slow down the critical path that it ship building.

    I would have thought that with the blog and all you might understand something as simple as that. 
    My advice to new players: "Delete the game from Facebook, change your email on Kixeye to support@kixeye.com and scramble your password. then just turn around and forget this place even exists. You will be better off."

    this wouldn't be a problem if they would just make the shipyard like the dock where you can use it exactly as before while its upgrading. I agree that is the 1 building really worth saving tokens for to have it instant build ideally losing no ship build time

    Well the original POINT of this post - from August - was Structure build tokens... I understand the strategy behind hoarding tokens, but part of that is dealing with the limitations they have put in place. 
    How many complaints does it take ?
    My dad used to say; Ask a girl if she will sleep with you for 1 million dollars. If she says yes, ask if she will sleep with your for $1. She will most likely be insulted, but you've established that this girl has a price and now its just a matter of negotiating.  
    We've established that nothing Kix says or does is set in stone, there is no trust and no respect - now its just a matter of negotiating.

    Dang necro post... unlikely to have limited upped and honestly there isnt a point to doing it. The game shouldnt plan its giving tokens to players based on whether the player wants to upgrade dock/shipyard at the players digression. Either cancel the ship ur building and upgrade or wait until they offer tokens again. I missed out on upgrading my sy once and i waited the next time for the tokens

    I do not mind the limit to the tokens, and I should have planned better before raid and saved base parts. 5 2 day tokens is an acceptable limit, that is 10 days to pretty much get you to 4 Days on a full epic mort build.

    I did mean maxed out. My base was fully upgraded at the time I posted this... 3 months ago?? That was a good while before the new OP. People knew the new OP was coming, but many players had nothing left to upgrade. Every building was max level and fully equipped. So all the tokens from the Rivals re-runs were basically wasted.

    Concerning the shipyard, this past raid was a good opportunity to pick up 5 2-day building tokens. Combine that with the 2 1-day building tokens from FM and you would basically have the shipyard upgrade done instantly. (And shipyard build is 2 weeks, not 3 weeks).
