When will we be able to get Zoe Rhinos again? Any chance the Acid campaign will be thrown out there again?

    No information about that is known at this time.

    I was thinking this recently, then remembered that retrofits often put the stats of the base hull up to meet the limited named ones. I think I'd be more interested to hear when the Rhino is going to get a refit instead, as I think that would be of more use in the long run.

    Hull retrofits are long overdo but they might scrap them all together since they were apart of the complaint of content overload. The Crusader and Nighthawk have never received the retrofit treatment, but since then much more powerful hulls have replaced them. Giving that generation of hulls deflection stats would absolutely reinvigorate them but then players would complain that they need to put their component retrofits on hold.

    Simple solution: cut the time for the retrofitting of hulls. The whales will still coin them. If higher level retros were 3 days max, people would continue to commend Kix for making progress in the right direction.

    There's a lot of ideas on how to reinvigorate older hulls, but I wouldn't count on the Retrofit Lab as being one of them in the future. Kixeye makes more money releasing next-generation replacements instead (Punisher > Crusader, Drac. Carrier > Warbird, Prototype Hunter & V2-H > Vassago's/Viper Interdictor, &tc.). Previously the [R10] stock hull could be made as good as, or better than the limited variant hull (e.g. Greta's Nuclear Cruiser), until it was decided to retrofit them too. Spader's DNX seems to be the only hold-out, but it's still slightly better than the stock DNX.

    I also agree with the continued build-time and retrofit time reductions. As Gen. 2 and 3 fleets become more and more obsolete (e.g. Sea Scorpion A < MCX < Kodiak < Neptune/Rhino), the oldest hulls and weapons (e.g. D55-F < D55-Z < Blade) should have further reductions to their cost and build-time. Catching up in this game would be easier and quicker if you could have 'better' old tech sooner. In the current model and pacing, it's better to skip generations of hulls and weapons and strive for the latest and greatest instead.

    Edit: This is being done, but the only two strong examples of this are the build-time and weight reductions of D35-S and D35-Z.
    Praise be RNGesus!
