The upgrades seem like good progress overall. But not being able to que up all repairs Is a real bummer for those of us that cant sit on the couch all day playing the game. i come on 2 times a day or so. so if i need to repair 4 platoons it will be 2 days before i can be ready to play again. This promotes the use of scrips! I choose to play this game because i can compete without running scrips. I would much rather take a few minutes to create new platoons than have to check in every 2 hours just to repair another platoon. Im very concerned about issue. Thanks, FS-Trip

How about an armoured anti-aircraft vehicle to accompany tank platoons or razorbacks as humvees are pretty useless at AA

I wait to see how exactly this works out but it is a bad idea to make people work full day times to perform repairs or force them to pay cash to get repairs done quickly. This is getting like "BOB the REPAIRMAN". Very bad marketing.
How can i keep track of where my squads are repairing???
Why should they be exposed while they do so???
Will I have to keep notes and arrange meeting hexes for my squads in order to organise an attack??
Can i reinforce the defences of a particular depo in order to make it a staging area??
What would be nice is to finally enable players to form alliances that can have wars on each other and give the game some meaning. I am level 31 going to 32 and bored out of my mind
STILL THINK THIS GAME IS THE BEST I PLAYED SO FAR BUT IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS WITHOUT CLEAR LONG TERM AIMS AND PURPOSE FOR OLDER MORE TEC ADVANCED PLAYERS.

I've been playing this game for some time. In regards to those people who work full time as well as something to freshen up the game, as well as other comments offline I've heard, I am making a suggestion to the creators and programmers of this game.
1. For those who cannot periodically check on repairs due to having a busy life I'd like to make this recommendation and would like to hear what others think of it. I was listening to the radio this morning and it was talking about how the market for Facebook games is bad, due to the fact that Tablets and Smartphones are becoming dominant. This gave me an idea as I read these posts... could Kixeye create some sort of Android and Apple smartphone App to do something things initially... like building, deleting, repairing units... as well as repairing a base if the person is attacked and is away or on vacation? It doesn't have to be anything graphically spectacular... but something to check up on: Upgrades, Repairs (units, buildings, base) , Deleting units, collecting resources from base factories.
Even a graphically simple App for the smart phone would put you light years ahead in terms of Facebook games as you'd then be on smart phones. Then I'm sure as smartphones become more advanced they'd be able to eventually host full games. Just a thought.
2. Having a Purpose: I agree with adding the element of adding a war between factions. Like Red vs Blue or whatever. Perhaps add a reward system for this to where you can only collect special materials from your enemies (certain units) as well as certain locations to build "Elite Units," as well as perhaps have a "Far Future" element in the game to where one can discover Top Secret plans (much like the military in real life has top secret things)... build units of high technology. This may even add a new element to the game. For example a new sort of building/unit of scientists and engineers to create those technologies.. similar to the game Xcom.

One thing I would like to see added is the following: As it stands now you can not attack a someone that is 4 lvl's higher or lower than you are, which is fine, but if that lower or higher lvl player attacks one of your depots you should be aloud to retaliate on that persons base! Or even better that lower or higher lvl player should not be aloud to attack your depots

One other thing that I see alot of player are not liking is the repair update. I too only sign on a few times a day and would hate to have to repair 1 unit at a time. VERY DUMB UPDATE! :mad:
You will see that you can only repair a single platoon at a time and can not queue up all units in your base/storage to repair. We made this decision to simplify the UI.

I do not like this part of the update.
unless after the first platoon is repaired the next one will automatic go in to repair. because some of us do are repair will we sleep and this will cause a lot of pain and trouble.

How about a 2nd dozer once you get past lvl 20 the times get unreasonably long for upgrade . being able to upgrade 2 base units at once would be good for the game.

I believe you made a typo in the original post:
In addition to the platoon changes we've tweaked a few other things:
"5. The deployment cap is now linked to your storage building level, not your Command Center level."
Im sure you guys meant to say, staging area level. Or is the name of the building being changed also?

One last thing, would be nice to see an upgrade queue, so you can list things in the order you want them upgraded and have them start right after another has finished instead having to log on all the time. You guys have a long way to go. Now I see why it's a free game.
