With the event just tomorrow and a unit that many of us have come to rely on now having major issues, taking increased damage and no fix coming until next week, is it too much to ask that the unit has reduced repair times until its fixed so as to reduce the negative impact on the players and their event? Would you feel less unhappy if Kixeye reduced repair times for ESS/SS so as to reduce the negative impact this has on our event?

No, keep repair times the same, I dont mind that a unit I put months of effort into has been effectively nerfed.

    I'd rather they reduce the build time by a couple of days, otherwise I ain't gonna be able to use it at all for this event, let alone repair it.
    At this rate, I'll have it built 1 day before the event ends.

    'd rather they reduce the build time by a couple of days so I can actually use the damned thing.

    But m8, that would do nothing to help those most effected by this, those of us that have put in significant time and effort in unlocking it through level 95 bases, nearly 2 months upgrading it in the tech center and months upgrading tech for it :(

    Well you got a headstart on upgrading it in the Tech Center and upgrading Customizations.

    Honestly, I couldn't care less either way. The most use I'll get out of my Elite Sandstorm is killing Floating Platforms with it. I'll probably at most get maybe 10 minutes Repair Time from a single Floating Platform, so a Repair Time reduction wouldn't affect me too much.

    And thats my fault because you didnt unlock it before now?

    Reducing the repair time will simply mean the current negative effects will be lessened, nothing more, smh.

    Your previous comment seemed to be a whining comment about how it's not fair that players such as you were doing dozens of Corpus 95 Bases and then you looked with envy at us latecomers doing only 16 70s (or in my case 23 because I was doing Repeats for extra Parts).

    However, I will agree that since the Sandstorm and Elite Sandstorm are bugged, that a good "holdover action" would be to reduce their Repair Times to lessen the negative effects of their bugs.

    And what, a reduction in repair times would help instead?
    Neither of these solutions will bring about a magical fix for the issue my friend, so why does it matter if the build time is reduced instead of a repair time reduction.

    Also, as lomolife said, you have had the advantage of having it much longer than those of us who unlocked the E version. You've had a major headstart, when KIXEYE does get around to fixing it, you will have a unit much more powerful than mine, whether mine is Elite or not.  You will have yours near max stats, with all the benefits that come with those extra stats, whilst Im starting at the beginning. I've still gotta do those 2 months man, whether I like it or not.

    So who cares right? At the end of the day, neither reducing the repair or build time will correct the big issue with the units. But it would be a nice way for them to say sorry. Hey, if their willing to do both of these things, like reduce repair times as a sorry for those who have had the unit they previously used alot screwed up all of a sudden, and the build times for those who just got it unlocked as a sorry for them, Im totally up for that idea.
    I just wanna see the build times reduced so I can get some use out of this thing before the event ends, because, even if the drones are buggered, I can still see this thing going far and doing alot for me in the event, provided I can use it.

    Sorry, I do agree that reducing the Sandstorm and Elite Sandstorm's Repair Times could help to calm the players down and feel as if the WC Dev Team is realizing that we are taking extra Repair Time due to their bugged state.

    Yes, obviously having my SS for longer and being upgraded has benefits, its the purpose of me spending so much time and effort in doing so, this has nothing to do with the current issues.

    Correct, reducing repair times wont fix this but it will mean that the issue isn't as bad as it currently is, thats all im hoping for.

    I will lay this out and I bet im right.....Kix when they made this event did it with a normal SS in the mix... Then someone F-ed up and caused big errors so that some people could get the ESS before event.  Kix was forced to let everyone get it.  Then someone had a OHH CRAP moment.  They remembered that the ESS stats could make this event a big advantage for US so they nerfed it.  They win both ways.  You get the ESS so you cant complain it was unfair that some had it AND they make it so its just about worthless for us in events.  If it takes 11 min damage in a Rouge 35 you can guess what it will NOT do in a event base...prove me wrong kix...fix it BEFORE next week...which is AFTER the event...you guys are garbage for doing this to us YET AGAIN before event.  
    Yes I know....

    Why can't you people make a poll with the choices of "yes" or "no" without all the nonsense added onto the choice you don't want them to pick?

    Lol, why do you people accept being disadvantaged through no fault of your own and just accept it? Many of us put significant time and effort into upping this unit for the advantages it brings but despite said efforts we wont have what we worked for this event.

    i agree something needs to be done about the SS and ESS it either needs a 1/2 repair time or it needs to be fixed either way they could still get money off it being fixed or add haif repairs to it

    I would have voted yes if the clown running the biased poll didn't try to force people to vote his way.
    Biased polls are completely worthless anyway - this is a meaningless waste of time.

    The way the situation stands is that the player base is facing increased repairs through no fault of their own and if they happen to be willing to pay for repairs then they will have increased costs too. Why is this, because the service provider has a technical issue. 

    This is entirely unfair, not right and unethical, the customers will pay through the nose for this and the company stands to make financial gain so inturn has no incentive to address the issue sooner, all at a time when we will all be facing more losses and repairs than usual as an event is taking place. Only a fool would defend such actions or situations and is doing the playerbase no favours whatsoever but hey, clearly these people dont mind receiving a worse service at an increased cost.

    I am not asking for a pile of gold to cover our increased losses and costs, which considering the situation wouldn't be unreasonable, I am simply asking that an adjustment to repair times be made to offset the increased repairs we currently face because of this glitch/technical issue, it's simply the right thing for Kixeye to do.
