My quick little tutorial for the newest update on how to reduce repair times.
-OK first of all enter your base, and click on the platoon button or your storage. Find and dis-ban ( Yes, that is correct I did say dis-ban) all your platoons that have damaged units.
-Once all damaged units are dis-banned from their platoons you will be ready to drastically reduce your repair time!!!
-OK now create a new platoon.
-Select one unit to add to this platoon for instance a Rhino tank. If the Rhino or whatever units you decided to start off with is not damaged then please keep adding units until you place one damaged unit in this "repair platoon". ( I myself prefer to keep all the same units in one platoon when doing this time saving repair like Rhinos with Rhinos.) This "repair platoon' is only temporary, and you may dis-ban it after all repairs are complete. You will want to make one new platoon for each different unit, and remember only one damaged unit in a repair platoon at a time.
-So here is the kicker that will reduce your build times so you can get back to the fight! Start the repair on the first repair platoon you have set up. When repair time remaining gets to 4:59 (four minutes and fifty-nine seconds) click free instant finish. Then start the next platoon in line to repair, and while that one is going manage the first "repair platoon" and add one more damaged units to the platoon. By doing this it cut my repair time for a totally dead Rhino by more than half. It takes me 8:24 (eight minutes and twenty-four seconds) to normally repair a dead Rhino, but by using this little trick you can minus the instant finish of 4:59 (four minutes and fifty-nine seconds) Which brings my repair time down to about 3:25 (three minutes and twenty-five seconds) for a Rhino. Which allows me to repair a platoon of 16 Rhinos in 57:20 (fifty-seven minutes and twenty seconds) versus waiting on the whole platoon to repair without the trick would take 2:17:?? (two hours seventeen minutes and few seconds).
If you are lazy this trick is not for you, but if you need to repair quicker to get some paybacks on that guy that just ambushed your platoons and stole your depot's then this might just be the edge you need! I know its not an instant repair miracle or nothing, but at least it can keep you with some fighting units when you need them most. Another thing you can incorporate into this trick is never let your units totally die. If you use this trick and say a Rhino has around 30% to 35% life left you should be just about able to free instant repair a bunch of them very quickly depending on how quick you are swapping a new damaged unit in, and pressing that free instant finish button!!! I know I have heard a lot of complaints about the new update to the platoons and repairing.
So hopefully this "repair platoon" trick will help everyone out, and Kixeye won't block it. Thank you for taking the time to read my first tutorial!!!
