    You are in the minority man. Level 48 who has no problem doing the elite? Sorry, you don't have many peers.
    Either players who have no problem with it are much higher level, or they are similar level but have a problem doing it.

    You... you stand alone...
    I'm playing on my alt atm, and honestly, I love posting on the little account. Shows me who's paying attention and who judges a book by its cover. ;)

    I don't know which is which, as it relates to me. A little of column A and a little of column B, methinks.

    It shows they are trying to improve the game...However, I read nothing that has made me get overly excited about the changes they propose...They are all minor changes in my opinion, and like they said, take 6 months or more to accomplish...They seem so minor, that I doubt they will hardly be noticed as time goes on...Let's face it...Kixeye depends on coining to pay their salaries and bills....I seriously doubt they will make the kind of changes that will effect their bottom line....It's a necessity...

    I am happy with most of the post.  The thing I'm not happy is the part that isn't plain english.  Hope we have a kix rep on Thursdays show to clean it up a bit.  Overall it sounds like they're listening to the players and taking steps toward a better game.

    I very much believe in "work smarter, not harder".

    If this game gets too "dumbed down", it will take the 'smarter not harder' element out for most players who subscribe to that method.

    I guess it's fortunate for kix that most players don't care about working smarter, which is why so many people build fleets that take 2 months to build and a full day to repair. If I were that foolish, I would complain about build times too ;)

    Now I have my own problems, arrogance is one of them - but arrogance is not effected in any way by build or repair times, which is why I have no problem with kix or the game as it stands today.

    I am somewhat scared for the direction you may take the build times, specifically high level builds going into the 30-40 day range per ship.  You have indicated that low power builds should see a significant decrease to build times, but there hasn't been a cap from the looks of it.  I feel like a lot of it's well meaning, but could be completely screwed up.

    I know the difference and I have read what is in the dev's statement it mentioned repair specialists but nothing on retrofits that is why I am asking but I am sure that I will get no response like the last time I tried to ask. 
    The answer is that there isn't an update on that. Hence the silence.

    Also tbh the only solution to make VXP not so much of a necessity is to make this VXP weekend monthly (meaning lots of 85s). You reward players for "playing with their ships", and peeps can get rank without spending hours on salvs.

    Yes  i don t think the team needs to waste time with the vxp once a month 85 s are Great   . Just too much coding to change  
       Repair times though  We need an across the board reduction  not vxp specialists . Much easier to reduce it by a set amount 20% even although 50% would be nicer ,Boy could flat an entire sector for an almost affordable nights fun

    i agree rustdog,way to little ,way to late

    the only question i have to figure out now is

    xbox one or PS 4

    yay, we can coin our repairs on the map

    made me lmfao and beer come out my nose

    pass the kool aid


    For what it's worth, I read that as being about instant repairs, not the 5min+ ones.

    Beating a dead horse, but it's one thing to say all the right things. Quite another to do them.  More than enough examples have been pointed out of Kix clearly identifying a problem, proposing a solution, beginning to implement and then.........flatline.

    I think they did a great job of saying all the right things here.  Someone has been paying attention somewhere.  Now, will they execute?  I will change how I spend/play when I see said execution.  Not a day sooner.

    Interesting....

    bit questions i got are. how hard is it to just lower repair times in general? i mean all this reductions etc. why not just cut repairs by 25% at least then more people will be coining stuff..
