    Didnt do different than other days, mining and upgrading my base.. Lost like 13 fleets by now.

    I too am having the same problem with merc fleets not being available to launch when they should be. It has been over 24 hours and still I'm told I can't launch a fleet for another 7 hours. I don't use merc fleets very often. I haven't watched it enough to see if there is a pattern, but I will keep checking.

    You wanted to know exactly what we were doing when Merc fleets disappeared and tonight I activated one, went and attacked another base, came back and got attacked and it just disappeared while being attacked. That makes 7 or 8 that have just disappeared while engaging in normal BP activities.

    Hey there.
    Been meaning to log this problem but ya get that...
    Anyway... I originally thought that these had some time frame & if not used then they are removed, but keeping an eye on them alot closer I noticed that each one that self launched was not available in the MAP screen but I had the cooldown counter!
    This has been going on for about a month to 2 months now.
    Lost approx 8 fleets, mabye more...
    I lost one only today since I have been logged on. I was on 4 then next time I went back into the webpage (was on another page at the same time) I had lost one & cooldown timer was 11hrs 45 mins.

    I have posted already about this, but just noticed something. I was sent a gift request, I went to accept it and it told me I had already accepted all my gifts. Went to launch a merc and it wont let me as have nearly 12 hours to wait. Dont know if it is relevant or not?

    I deployed a merc this morning, my time around 06.30 am.
    I just log in on BP, and a friend did destroyed my merc by accident, because he tought i was under attack.
    Till now no problem, but i checked my merc-fleet, somebody did send me a merc fleet and i didnt recieved it and also i can deploy a new merc after 9 hrs.
    And here its now 5.00 PM.

    Normal every 12 hrs i should be able to deploy a new merc fleet, but here is now also a delay, and i didnt recieved my merc what was send to me.

    I only loged in, didnt do anything else.

    I've been losing Mercs as well. I have been receiving them as gifts and not using them yet so I WAS up to 12 Mercs. Every day for the last 3 or 4 days that I have logged in I've noticed I'm down by 1 Merc and it tells me I can not deploy another until *Insert time limit here*. I haven't done anything but upgrade my dock and did recently jump sectors. Not sure what's going on but it's rather strange to be losing what isn't being used LOL

    Was out killin salvages returned and repaired just before my last one came into dock it launched one. It removed it from my count. my count hasnt gone up at all the last few weeks because of this and my friends keep sending them. i cant use them and this is getting kind of irritating. if you cant fix the problem then you really should remove it until you can. A statement like that will probably piss off the masses but if its not working then you should really pull it and start over.

    First off, it's been days since I launched any Mercenary Fleets.
    Well in the afternoon I was just collecting salvage and when I went to help on an assault I tried to call one up, timer said I still had 4 hrs. I checked later ( more than 4 hrs) and I could have launched one but didn't need to. Today I was collecting salvage and wanted to see what my newer merc may look like and it said I had 8hrs till I could launch one.
    I checked around 10 pm EST when it said I could launch, it was 245pm EST when it told me I had 8 hrs till I could launch. I never launched in the last several days. I had reported this before but it seemed to have corrected itself, but alas, no, it's the same thing again. VERY AGGRAVATING!
    Last time I reported it through the " Report/Contact this App" link, but deleted the response email after it appeared to have been corrected.

    Found this and loved it:

    well i have not used a Merc Fleet in over a week.
    But! Every time I go to use one it seems I have to wait some amount of time.
    Sometimes it say 11Hrs sometimes it say 5hrs....

    I know this bug has been on going for a while.
    But now I cant even defend my base or send a Merc fleet to help anyone.
    Please find out what is going on and fix this.
