I'm not one to moan. The game (my view here) didn't require being changed. Perhaps the level system, but just for clarity...
Online gaming requires a fine ratio of time, effort, pleasure and finally cost effectiveness giving an overall rewarding experience/learning curve.
So lets look at the recent updates:
Time - yes more time repairing to open up cargo that 'was essential' in having the pleasure of being attacked or being attacked. Now time is taken just to repair from open the cargo???? Own Goal
Pleasure - there's little pleasure whereby progressing is now limited because of the damage taken from opening cargo - own goal
Cost Effective - neither Time or Pleasure warrant the basis to pay for repairs or updates - own goal
Finally the overall reward of gaming has been lost by the attacking structure, level of damage taken whilst salvaging and the now 'too competitive' element to hit those lesser than yourselves...whom will eventually run out of cargo because they wont be able to 'salvage without significant repair time.'
So overall, I estimate a resounding loss for Kixeyes, as is apparent by the previous posts.
Being commercially minded, I have to question the forethought and serious consideration that these types of updates do for the company, as all the benefit of the game has been lost.
Salvage to repair after being attack, only to repair the damage from the salvaging, to then be attacked before you can essentially level up to protect you're efforts/or gain pleasure/reward in becoming 'stronger' better.
As a result...I fear kixeye has scored a resounding own goal.
Anyone still with me...because I suspect the game now will become boring...'elitist' with an element of repetitiveness...Yawn!

Advertisers don't pay to have ads placed on vacant sites, they pay to have them seen. Sheer numbers which is where free players are critical. So free players quitting the game will result in advertisers backing out and paying players will have no one to play against except each other. Their interest will die as well. In your attempts to rake in more money (like raid changes), you are instead pushing the game to the edge of a cliff. I'm done unless improvements are made.
Did you pay the iron price or the gold?
If no one can really salvage. people will see the game as too hard, too hard, people dont play it.. I cant take a salvage anymore. and im a 46. i have BattleCruisers that get their **** whipped. What the **** are you guys thinking, the game Revolves around the Coin?
**** you Kixeye, just **** you.

I am a level 50, I have sustained ZERO damage opening a level 55 salvage.. i don't understand why everyone is cyring like babies and some went to thread to boycott a free game is beyond childish.. and is in fact tryanny.. For the record. I also show how lower level with Stalkers can easily open salvages..... ANYONE who cry on here that it needs to coin to open salvages obviously spend too much time complaining instead of being a true pirate or gamer and figure out a way.. I the comm for 1 hour.. then i send out my fleet with 4 ships on it went into a level 55 salvage open it .. came out with ZERO damages.. then people cry because they don't own any Golden Arabian Floating Slippers.. so I went in and take out my Stalkers. dusted them off and opened up a lvl 45 and level 55.... now.. I have to admit I can on IMAGINE what a TYPHOON will be like ..ROFL
MY ID is 149349..I have been playing this game for more than 1 year and 6 months. I remember when i started this game the map was black. you have to find your ways around and when the first raid happened all a sudden the map is blue everywhere... everyone cried . I was mad too as I used to develop my own roads on the map and know where everything was and you build these roads from exploring new areas... i used to have to open my own salvages and nobody open anything for me... Oh by the way.. that was before there were submarines before there were specials, and finding an FF is like seeing GOD!.. there will be like 1 to two people with FF the whole sector?? Oh Yes.. i do coin now and then.. I think i spend less than US$450 on this game in total? And I did not really coin until I reached level 29.. and join the alliance I am in and become more competitive.
when people cant get Loot to grow they quit as 70% wont pay coins.
as am i.
Still waiting for my coins you were going to credit me too......LOL
I've played 4x games since they were introduced. This is the very first time I've EVER encountered a game update that made the game virtually unplayable. Change it back, or at least tone back the overwhelming power of the "New & Improved" salvage cargoes.
I'm very disappointed in your overall regard for your customer base, and the pathetic way in which you respond to player input. Fix the problems, stop blaming YOUR failings on the programs & browsers of other companies, and start responding to your customer base, or you will soon lose customers faster than you could possibly imagine.
Captain _ ADT lvl 35 (61) presently sector 233 i agree totally!!
