    but If it doesn't work out for both the players and KIXEYE then I see no reason to change the way it is now.

    Wait what? Kixeye is in the business of selling time (speed ups). The players are saying the time (speed ups) are over priced and want them reduced so they will actually take part in said selling of time. Since Kixeye lacks the financial staff necessary to understand economic trends and correlations, this is the exact reason why it will never happen. To Kixeye, Time = Money. Therefore increase the cost of time and they will make more money.

    For the players, Time = Cost. Increase the cost and fewer will partake. I am sure they have someone running the numbers... but likely they have retasked that person to the new games where their focus lies.

    Let me put it like this, I do think build times should be shortened or Dry Dock added, but If it doesn't work out for both the players and KIXEYE then I see no reason to change the way it is now.

    Fallout it has been shown in many threads that a Dry Dock would be mutually beneficial to players and to Kixeye, not only financially wise in the short term but it would also encourage more players to continue playing and to play harder and better if they had the ability to better their fleets quicker. It would bring about a more balanced game instead of just Kixeye playing up to those that coin the most. It would encourage the smaller players (the next generation of coiners) to stick at it and spend more...Win Win for players and Kixeye when the bigger picture is really taken into consideration :D x

    So I am guessing you enjoy playing with yourself then......if we do not get something to speed up the drag that BP has turned into you will surely end up playing with yourself....now that might be fun for you but it be a huge shame for a game that was once great; fast fun action.

    I know that but I was only referring to this thread. In other words mods and KIXEYE are well aware of how much the community want this to be added.

    Well yes in a way, because think about it, the more people and the more MODS you can get on your side the better, i am always bringing it up to the CM about the build times.

    My parents always told me to listen with out talking. You have said that you pass everything on, which is honestly great. Continual posts and replies saying the same things though(not just you other too) seems to only serve to wind poeple up.

    I am glad you see. The reasoning has been explained, this is just about the numbers. Showing how many are in favour of and are in desperate need of this feature :)

    Might I also add that the Mods seem to be trolling a teeny weeny tiny bit? :lol: x

    I loved the game, I like to spend the money on this game and I understand that the company has to make money too. But at this time there is no reason to spend ANY MONEY. I'm so backed logged on ships, I don't have a reason to play as much. I want to play the mission and the raids but what for? A new ship? A new special? That's just another ship that adds to my back logged shipyard. There are 30 hulls out there to build, maybe 20 hulls worth building. The ratio of ships to build slot is a crazy. If I can't build the ships I won in the last raid before the next raid whats the sense of doing the next raid? I would like the idea of the dry dock, but we won't get it. I thing we should be able to have 3 spots to refit/build at a time. With a new ship a month with these crazy build time is a must. if not this game will be dead within a year without any changes to the build times or number of ships that can be built at a time. Until then I will not be spending any more money, on a game that I don't get a fair return on MY MONEY.

    So far the status quo only benefits Kixeye. In what way does having the massive coiners such as Liam who are now complaining about the choke point beneficial to Kixeye? This has been a problem for over a year and Kixeye has offered less in the form of solutions than their players have. FACT.

    Arrhh!!! .....

    These words from Paul Preece were in the now deleted "Aura" announcement from late July ... hopefully Paul can come back to give us an update on how the work is progressing many, many months latter

    I love how Paul Preece talks about game balance. This game has been unbalanced for a long time now. There are new, more powerful ships released every month and there has been NO significant additions for base defense. The Halo as a raid prize does not count. In fact, that addition was nerfed before anyone could claim it because it was deemed to powerful by Kixeye. Some how a new base weapon is overpowered in their eyes but none of their ship releases are.

    Ok maybe the title isn't the best way to put. Perhaps it should be like this " Building, repairing and refitting times are taking long. How about a dry dock so we can build, repair and refit 2 ships at a time? "

    I have to agree. It's tough being stuck between building new ships and refitting. It takes forever to get anything accomplished. A dry dock would certainly help.

    Alright here, WE WANT DRY DOCK...COMING SOON? Would that be a better idea maybe attach that to the label underneath the Drac Bases.

    Dry Dock to do refits and that would be it, no penalties, can be attached to the Dock itself so no more buildings just extra slot for it on the Dock and upgrade Dock for the use of refits. Now that was easy and painful..
