    i think the dry dock idea is a stupid one.... they can also cut build and refittimes to 50% and you have same... no other building needed but i think they wont lose the money so i bet they will never reduce build or refit times and never give you a dry dock..........

    I think even if KIXEYE cuts the build times by 10-25%, i think it would be better than nothing, i will bring this to KIXEYE as well.

    That would of been a great olive branch to the players. At least something to show that they realize that the issue if more important than the coming soon of the drac bases.

    10% would be like an officer, but thats not enouph for the situation we're all stuck into. I think 25-50% is the minimum at this point, and im not being greedy, if we could build 2 fleet at a time that would be like 100%.

    And i dont hate the idea to build 2 or even 3 ships at the same time, since even a goliath will still take a month to build, and who knows if we ever get goliath x in the future,

    any reduction would be appreciated i don't care if they call it a drydock or something else as long as it has the same effect as in to significantly reduce build times i would be happy with 25% better than a kick in the teeth

    ARRRHHH....

    I won 6 drac hulls in the last raid (3 good ones, 3 small ones).... I cannot wait to build all of them. Unfortunately i've also got a ton of other things that need doing first. For example, refitting my base guard fleet to have decent specials on, refitting my salv cracking fleets with the engine 2 special, building 2 new raid fleets, refitting 1 more and retiring my old BBs, building a new res hauler fleet and finally completing my Interdictor fleet I started in November. I've done some rough numbers and I think i'll be done with all of that for the end of February.

    Then i'll start building the new hulls I won, this will take me up until my birthday.... which is in June. This is all the while assuming I don't add to the backlog by getting a new hull or two in the 6 raids between now and when the backlog should be cleared for. Bearing in mind all of this is going on while I don't have the big ticket items that take 15 days+ each to build like the Goliaths and the DNX.

    Basically i'm aware that kixeye is worried about upsetting the balance of the game by altering build times or giving people a drydock.... but if such a bottleneck continues then people will eventually make good on their threats and leave.... in which case balance won't be an issue anymore, purely because there will be no one left in the game.

    I know this subject has been talked to death so this is the last time i'll post in a thread about the ridiculousness of build and repair times. I can only hope something gets done relatively soon, even if it's just an official statement telling people one way or another if anything will happen to resolve this problem in the immediate future.

    Edit to add; right now i'd be happy to see any reduction in build/refit/repair times, 10% off of a 6 month backlog is still a lot

    Reducing build times would be of benefit but the trouble is that with all the new tech being released for ships, nobody has the time to refit their current ships to keep up with the game. Hence one of the reasons behind having a dry dock, so peeps can continue to build and refit at the same time to keep up with a game that's moving so fast that it's limiting it's players to such a slow pace x

    Well it won't be hard to implement anyway, why don't they add it to a beta server as testing waters to see if there is any change or add it in for a month and check on the public's opinion and check to see if they are making more money then with out but to note it as testing. Even a reduction of 25% + 10% from the officer is still a welcome. I guess a reduction is easier to add and they can increase it every other month to see how it is helping them or not.

    It's nice to see Mods and Admins actually taking the time to sit here and respond to most comments. Even if they are trolling or trying to control the trolls. It shows the effort they put into the forums.

    I would like to put in my shared desire for a Dry Dock or a means of Refitting already built hulls whilst still having the ability to build a new boat . I spend enough coins on events to get my hulls, I work for my money, it's not just something that comes from dad's wallet. So when I see that I have to spend 600 coins to finish a boat, my first reaction is Pfft screw that. I'm a poor white boy, I can't afford 60 dollars on pixels I spend at most ten to twenty dollars a raid THE MOST i ever spent was thirty and that was my very first raid and I kept screwing up. Now I'm the proud owner of Cuda's, Strike Cruisers, Dread X, and many other nice boats, but unfortunatly I am constantly having to refit my old boats so that I can keep up with the demands of the new raids... this being said I do not have time to build the awesome new hulls I won. See the problem here? Why should I keep dishing out money each event for a boat that's going to take me months to even start building a fleet of? I mean I JUST NOW finished my last Strike cruiser from when i won it a while back. I'm by no means asking for a miracle structure, however in real life we have support structures that repair and refit old boats, why can't we have one in the game, Heck why not make it a feature of the docks Upgrade docks to an elite status or something that allows them to modify boats? Sure there would be a substantial amount of coding to write, but I'm sure the programers and designers at Kixeye, who make games that are live action stratagy instead of waiting for other players to get on and maybe not even respond, can come up with something amazing enough for this!

    Long story short. Why should I support a game by buying coins for a raid, when i can't even use the reward I won because I'm too busy refitting a boat in the only place i can build a ship? It's a huge turn off for me, and others I'm sure. I'm thinking, if the new hulls for next event aren't great, I'm just gonna skip em till I can build the last of what I already have.

    Not to mention, it would prove a bonus for you as well. with two buildings doing two things, thats all the more someone might just buy a 10 - 15 gold rush job on each of them. Faster. Instead of waiting for a boat to go from 500 down to 15.

    Say I refit a boat and it costs 300 coins, And I have another boat thats half way done, it's sitting at around 295 coins. They both get to finish around the same time. So instead of waiting that much longer for JUST ONE boat, you could score 30 coins from 2 boats instead of the 4 day wait in between. Marketing win right there baby!

    Why aren't yall Arrrgghhh 'ing along with us? :)

    Its better than nothing.

    It is a terrible idea that will only accomplish one thing.
    Kixeye will go, "10%... oh ok!"
    Then the player base will go, "No! We want the rest of that 40% in the total of 50% reduction."
    Then Kixeye will just look at themselves and go, "Well we already gave them something... what more do they want. Now they are just being greedy."

    All or nothing. Because nothing keeps this game declining like it is; therefore, I want all. 50% reduction / second shipyard / dry docks. Whatever the solution is, nothing less gets me back to coining again.

    People asking for 50% need to understand, 10-25% of is better than nothing and every little helps, also 50% of is a bit to much.
