    A lot of nice things and crappy things from the update.

    Nice:
    -More Air
    -Free level 10 Airfield
    -free level 9 Staging area
    -Platoons repair in depots
    -Platoon grouping
    -Platoons repair together
    -Infantry can be healed and don't die anymore. WOOHOO Hercules'

    Crappy things:
    -Not sure if it's a glitch or if it's how it is, but Platoons only repair whilst you are online and connected resulting in constant army down time. Especially when you have a 24 hour repair time for everything like I do.
    -Raised commander level from auto-upgrading of air field and staging area woulda been better to have the points system redistributed to better accommodate players
    -Once one platoon finishes its repair timer another platoon doesn't start repairing which means either we pay for our repair speed, or we sit and stare a lot and wait.

    why have you made it that you have to be "in game" for all units to repair? this sucks big time!!

    My platoons are not repairing. I logged off last night with a total of 6 hours on all platoons and not even one of them was finished 7 hours later

    They only repair when you are online!!
    Basically you have to sit and stare at your screen while you troops repair.

    Thank U for somewhat agreeing with me Andrew Kline. lol I called that one guy retarded and he said i insulted him.. if he doesnt pay attention to the crap that spills out of his own mouth he will see he insulted me first.
    it speaks a lot about the way your parents raised you when you think "retarded" is not an insult.

    I cant believe it.. if you have 10 hrs of repairing units, that means you must be continuously logged in playing the game for 10 hrs. just staring at the screen waiting, you cant even walk away for 5 minutes or you will be disconnected and thus stops the repairing. this WAS the coolest game but if they dont fix this and take it back to how it operated before then they may as well change the name from war commander to ghost town... likely most will leave the game, including myself.

    just to clarify

    tanks DO repair while offline BUT

    if you take out 6 platoons and then nee to repair all 6 platoons you have two options

    first option: wait the 6hrs and then start repairing a 2nd platoon OR

    second option: disband all platoons to make a "repair platoon"

    only problem with the 2nd option is there is no fckin individual hp bar for each tank and therefore it throws in the least damaged first which means GOOD FCKIN LUCK trying to repair your army efficiently


    this is a stupid game update and kixeye have just lost a player GG and goodbye (yes this means i'm leaving backyard monsters and battle pirates too)

    here I thought at Kixeye they actually respond to forum threads regularly. Yet not a single post in here post-update. Just like Kotick's Blizzard.

    ok, i go to forums and i start to read about how to address the repair issues, (when i do this, it opens a new tab for me) as of this writing there was 46 pages. so, i go back and click the War Commander tab to get back into the game and i see that i have been logged out for inactivity. Which stops the repairs again.
    hello... hello... HELLO !

    Dez to further clarify either due to an error or on purpose the DO NOT continue repairing. I had 10 minutes of repairs after taking a depo last night. I logged off shortly thereafter and went to bed I returned approximately 7 hours later to the platoon needing an additional 7 minutes of repairs.... I for one believe that it is not what was intended and will be fixed to continue while logged off but at least at the moment it is not working that way.
    Looks like a sword to me, you have a filthy mind.

    This new Repair system sucks, there is currently 46 pages of comments speaking out in opposition of the new repair format, I hope you take note and revert to the old repair system. I can only speak for myself and members of my alliance, of which most of us spend a minimum of 3 to 4 hours a day online in WC, if this update isn't reverted you have lost several loyal players

    OK more griping from setor 2, We are tired of not being able to type while in full screen, it was awsome. Another Big issue we all hate is how long platoons take to repair and you cant repair 2 at a time. so F*** the line "so you can get back into the action quicker" We cant SWAG we cant.

    Two pages deleted, yet no response from anyone :)

    I exit game, platoon currently under repair at 2:04.

    I am gone for an hour, 15 minutes. I recheck - 1:46

    gg

    At this rate, I can do one easy rogue base per day.

    It probably makes more sense to scrap damaged units now and rebuild them rather than repair. That is, if the build unit speed isn't also broken, gonna test that now, gods knows you have not.
