when are we going to have an option to do something with all the useless tech i have paid for in raids and cant use because kixeye has made it useless. i think selling or recycleing should be an option to clear some of our inventory so i can find the next wave of useless tech. ??????

    You know Just last week I was thinking exactly the same thing about my truck.......I paid good money for that truck and at the time i thought it was it was the nuts, I used to love that truck, I polished it, cleaned it, even caught myself staring at it from time to time thinking to myself how lucky i was to have such a fine truck, It done everything i asked of it and lots more......However here we are today and to be fair its a pig, It rattles, clonks & bangs, dont like stating in the mornings and if i'm honest its not fit for the task...... So heres the master plan, what i've done is i've bought me one of them nice new shiny trucks that everyone else is running around in.....Its the nuts i'm gonna clean it, Polish it and i might even stare at it from time to time while thinking **** i'm lucky to have such a fine truck !!!!

    Moral of the story is if its junk scrap it & move on. Nobody forced you to spend money, That my friend was your choice and yours alone !!!

    I guess a fool and his money are easily parted !!! Go figure eh !!!

    I'm sure the OP already knows there is an option to 'scrap' actual ships from the shipyard, so I would guess that he is actually complaining about the every-growing clutter of blueprints he will never use again in the 'pick lists' for shipyard? Yes, it would be a nice option to be able to go into the Intel Lab and click a checkmark on each blueprint that says "hide from shipyard".

    Either the price of new technology must come down or the replacement cycle time must be lengthened. The only way to "keep up" with this game is to spend exorbitant amounts of money or get very, very lucky with builds which are useful for more than a couple months.

    if you did Choke Point 2 and combined that with Guidance Scrambler 3 and Enhanced Warheads 3, you had a solid Rhino build. Not the best. BUT WILL EASILY GET YOU DOUBLE T3

    You're missing the point of the post. The Rhino is good for now, but soon it will be tier 2 crap that no one wants. The issue isn't that good builds aren't accessible, they just aren't worth coining because it's a very short-term investment. If Kixeye maintained content in this game in which third or fourth generation fleets could continue to perform well, it would be worth investing in those fleets.

    I'm building a second Rhino right now and I fear it's too late; this May there will be a new raid format and the Rhino will likely be made obsolete.

    Anyone who spend money on Hellhounds with Magma Throwers (poor souls) will understand what I mean.

    the only Remote Targeting Missile hull that is obsolete is the Proto Nemesis, Remote Targeting can keep a hull alive. The Mastadon is old as hell, but still has a place.

    Also, with 15 weapon slots, Kixeye are gonna have to release something ridiculous. Like a Scourge Hellstar, basically take the hellstar, give it Corrosive missile override that is splash, and give it sub drones. oh and 100% Remote Targeting

    SHHHH!!! DON'T GIVE THEM ANY IDEAS!!!  ;)

    However, it's easy to make something obsolete, just give the opposition a longer ranged weapon that does exorbitant amounts of damage with splash and a high projectile speed (e.g. Drac Mine Glacial Turret).

    Would be nice if we got the Reaver Scouts and their Remote Targeting hulls though, as they wouldn't have overload they could be normal repair modifier, and the Hulk for Base Defense and Hades for base hitting, but in low raid tiers. as they wouldn't be too powerful. aka, Useless tech you DON'T pay for unless you dong have any reaver hulls.
