As the title says ...what is the point of the refit discount?.. unless your prepared to once again coin like F*&k.. you get to start off 1 ship and thats it for 6 days ..even with the discount …...

    You figured it out. The point is to give coiners incentive to coin even more while Kixeye can pretend that it is helping non coiners as well.  Well, it does help noncoiners with one refit but coiners can refit many ships so it can help coiners much much more.

    Kix is concerned about imminent exodus of major coiners. This is not the time to be giving stuff away to the freeloaders. The incentive is intended to be helpful in proportion to your spending. The freeloaders stuck for a decent fleet to face the event mustn't escape their plight without paying. What do you think this is, a war game?

    Sigh... nobody actually knows how to use these?


    You refit a few things on some ships, so that they finish before the discount does. then you make the longest refit you can right before it ends, giving you the massive time discount. doing that perfectly, you save 1.9 days on the refits done during the event, plus whatever you do as your final one. Like you start what would be a 18 day refit, you save 9 days, for a total of 11 days of refit. Sure, coiners can save more, but that is the benefit of being a coiner


    Why do people keep complaining that it doesn't help non-coiners? it does, just not as much as coiners.



    Well said, but to be precise it does not help coiners, it just saves money for them, if any since they just coin everything when it released. That is the reason why refit discount are run when no new techs are available or have been released since several days.

    The punishers were pretty much done for free. Going to change out one or two Fusion 3 for Xeno Armored Thruster 3 (about 15 hours each) and then will start a big refit on an Annihilator for about 5 days instead of 10... only one "big" refit
