It is a shame to see kixeye so concerned with making sure low level players cannot grow. Without subs I would still be a level 15 because ever since I got them I have used them to salvage. Battle barges are crap for salvages and so are marauders. It will take all day to open salvages with longboats and without the resources there is no way I will ever get any better ships. It's not like mining is safe because everyone knows mining is too dangerous. Right when you get your fleet full a high level player sinks your fleet and takes it all. I have been using fleets of battle barges and marauders to collect resources and subs to get them. Why is kixeye so mad at low level players that it wants to prohibit their growth?
An effort to force them to pay to get anywhere? There are many annoying factors about this game and the new policies are making it worse. The last time there was a raid the way it went in our sector was disgusting. All the prizes went to people from other sectors who moved here temporarily to get the prizes then left. For all these changes to work the range of high level players being able to attack low level players needs to be changed. I have personally had 30mil worth of salvage stolen by a player from the next sector within an hour or 2 of being ready to use it on an outpost upgrade. It took me nearly a week to recover and I had to live in a bubble to do that. Without a bubble protection or ability to use my subs as much as I like I will not be able to grow as a player. It took me a week to get 30mil of resources with instant repair subs, I lost it in 5 minutes and the bubble only lasted 17 hours. If this is kixeye's way of saying they are using too much bandwidth and want to run off some players I am certain it will work. I am already considering not playing anymore and the changes haven't hurt me yet. I'm sure all of the level30+ players love these changes because now they can farm the low level players constantly and the low level players cannot do anything to protect themself from it. Seriously what can a level 25 player do to a level30 player? if they spend all their fleets maybe they can cost them 30 minutes of repair time while they go back and spend 3 hours repairing.

If you dont like being attacked FvF, keep your precious ships on the inside where you wont get a repair bill

...and really, all you big coiners are mad for the reason that the sub fleet actually repairs in less time than it takes to have a battle !!
You should all be screaming at cm swag because your expensive sfb-3 cappuccino machines take 20x longer to repair than you actually play with them.Attachment not found.
ooooooooh now you can all dominate the pesky lower level players!!

Thanks for all the feedback you gave on the subject. We took it all into consideration and decided to move forward with making this go live in the game.

We have recalled the change for further testing.

If Kixeye does fix this and puts the subs back to the higher repair times, more will quit since they have next to no chance to get decent salvs before completing the better builds.

What? Are you using subs to tank? You shouldn't even be taking damage against dracs. Going for instant repair to 2 minutes per dead sub isn't going to ruin anything. Stop being such a crybaby.

The Predator Submarines currently have a base armor value of 80. This means that if Predators are not equipped with any additional armor and have small flagship, they can instant repair. After several months of seeing how the Predator is being used in combat, we feel that they should not be able to instant repair.
We will be buffing the base armor value of Predator Submarines to ensure that no fleet combination of 4 Predators + a small flagship will allow for an instant repair time.
