    This build discount really goes to show how stupid kix is. Might as well make the discount 5 minutes long for the coiners since they will be the only ones to do anything worthwhile with this ridiculousness.

    These build reduction and refit reductions would be great if we were told about them a week before they happened. But as it is now they are of limited use because we are never told about them until the day before. I guess kix wants us to coin finish our ships that are currently building so we can get this 25% reduction in build time. Sigh.

    I already have a ship building that wont be done for four more days so this build reduction does not help me. Give us notice a week ahead please otherwise these reductions have very limited use.

    I always build empty hulls. Maybe it lowers your chance to have a busy factory a little bit every now and then. But most of the time your factory will be busy none the less. Some refits take more time than building emty hulls.. In my case I have punisher building on 2 accounts and won't get any benefit from this since cancelling now would be a loss instead of a gain.

    I don't get how you figure we should be building the new cutter already. I even coined a few punishers on both accounts and am not done with them yet. I'll just ignore the new cutter for now like most are doing on this unrealistic time line of kixeye.

    I get that you want people to coin the cutters just before the cw, but atleast give other players a chance of making use of this build reduction promo. Hence make it a usable credit or make it a 48h-1week timer. (As I understand the reduction is only for hulls and not refits, so why not)

    Question for kixeye...if im allready building a ship will that build go down 20% when this kicks in or will it stay the same. i dont want to cancel it and start again

    No it will not effect ships currently building.

    Weigh the Bennifits of cancel or coin to participate carefully.

    Starts in just under 2 hours. But I for one won't be taking advantage of this, because there is really no advantage. I even have a build that is close to completion, but I won't gain anything by spending 150ish coins to possibly save about the same number of coins. Even if you start a Uber long build 2+ weeks your total saving in time will be in the vicinity of 7-9 hours which equates to 140-180 coins.

    As I said previously, WHAT. A. WASTE.

    Loving the fact you decide to tell us a couple of hours before a 20% discount on builds times starts when nearly everyone is part way through a build :-(

    Coiners only discount and the rest can fall further behind :-(

    Great job kix, pander to the coiners & lose the players

    IF YOU ARE GOING TO PUT AN OFFER 20% DISCOUNT REFIT FOR ONLY 3 HOURS, BETTER DO NOT PUT ANYTHING.
    Many players already have in the furnace constructions, others are upgrading the factory and others have already occupied doing refits.
    Put for only 3 hours a 20% refit, it's a joke of very bad taste.

    Simply put, don't use it folks, it isn't worth your time. Send the message that this piddly **** isn't worth your time.

    And if you wanna ban me for "organizing a protest" kixeye, I really don't​ care, because all I'm doing is pointing out your bullshit and saying that everyone has a choice.

    Do what you want kids, I'm just gonna eat a muffin and not give a rat's ****.

    Huh? How'd you figure 20% of a 2+ week build = 7-9hrs?
    2wks = 14 days, 20% = 2.8days = 67hrs = 1344 COINS
    Then there is is 10% alli saving on top of that.

    No I don't and I reaally don't care that much now anyway.

    T6 killed the game, the new hives will kill off even more players and coiners will just spend more and more each month.

    Where did the fun go and the help to low/mid level players that was promised :-(

    Pander to coiners & lose the players & end the game

    Like it or not, if you're not coining, you are irrelevant to them.

    Dear Kixeye,

    Our alliance was enlightend to see that we get a 20% faster ship build bonus, this really helps the non coiners, but also those who coin for a bit each week. 
    However, that moment of joy was for a short period only, not only it last for a complete 3 hours, it does not even work on ship builds wich are allready running. So either i have to stop my current build and lose 3 days, or coin the remaining 4 days and 20 hours so i can have a benefit on this Joke, just like the other lucky ones that had no build running yet.

    What are u actually trying to pull here? Of Course i realize that ur top coining players are the only ones u cash about...sorry care off course, my bad.

    U screw us over and over and over again what is ur main goal here? lose all non coining players and then off course the less coining people so the big coiners stay. u realize that those 3 need eachother to keep the game at least a tiny bit intresting wich is hard since u speeding up everything u got in stock. off course there are a select group of players that are stupid enough (ow this is gonna hurt a few players i know i know, just get over it) enough to keep coining and coining and coining so they can win battles from less fleets and then brag about their mighty fleet and big purse. And off course i understand that u did not build this game for us but for ur own purse. But see as it like the ocean when u fish out all the available fish to quick one dat the ocean will empty out. Why not go on a slower pace and collect more money over a longer period en give players more joy?

    AND yes i know that there are allready 3 topics at least on this subject, but why should i care....we all know kixeye does not care about us either. 

    With kind regards,

    Damnit I'm off by a factor of 10. Still saving 2 or 3 days on a build that takes 2 or more weeks isn't exactly doing anybody any favors.

    This is why I shouldn't trust a cross-eyed Pegasus with a calculator...

    Even tho this bonus is for coiners... Overall I'm happy with what kix has done in last few weeks.... The gaiting fixed a lot of problems with bases getting run over and events have been pretty good even for low levels. Yea the builds are crazy but at least you only have to build them once.

    really? so u get srewed for a long period of time and then get one cookie and u are happy again?  I will not disagree on the gaiting part but what kix did in the past few weeks does not make my mood any better for the things they screwed up over time.  Last event was pretty good the one before that was crappy. Build times? u want to add some swarm to ur dom or refit ur hellfire with infernal weapons 15 freakin days for 1 ship lmao good job indeed then.

    The refits could use some work but build times for a blank ship shouldn't change any since once built you never lose it, is what I'm saying

    Oh look, another Forum Rage event. Least this one lasts only three hours.

    Honestly I think they might as well not bother. People keep asking for these refit/build discounts, but inevitable what they accomplish most are threads like these filled with angry comments from people in the middle of builds. I'm in that boat this time as well. A three week advance notice (to cover the Dominion swarm builds) is asking a lot. A day or two notice like the last refit I thought was good, but seems to still be too short for many people on the forums.

    I've always seen these discount build/refit events as a random bonus, sometimes the stars line up, sometimes not. Not worth getting upset over.

    Didn't you see the new lore screen thing?

    The mobilization this week requires the new cutter.

    Hmm and a short build discount.. It's almost like they want people to coin new cutters.
