So we can refit 1 ship and have another building or as some of us say in the oven. That would make most players happier with this game .. What y'all think??

    A free refit credit from an event or something would be a neat idea though.

    Extremely unlikely as base ship building time as well as fitment times would have to be addressed with significant increasing time likely to occur across the board.

    Ship base build time and fitment time were mostly adjusted down a few months ago in part to address this issue.

    Believe it or not its better the way it is.

    ^ This.

    They'd balance times based on the assumption we'd be building blank hulls and refitting them afterwards so as to clear out the factory quicker. Which let's be honest, is exactly what we'd do. So the construction time of a blank hull would probably be adjusted to match that of a fully fitted one.

    It would give more flexibility though so increased times might be worth it for us. And there are then two potential things for the customer to coin complete, rather then one. So it might be worth it for Kixeye from that perspective.

    I think more people would coin myself included revolution brings more money in. I played everquest for over 2 yrs I loved it cause you paid as you went and had over 8 million players before everquest 2 came out and killed it. Change is good for the game is all I'm saying and putting it out there

    Actually it will reduce coinage because ppl wont have to coin their main build in order to start a refit like kixeye wants them to... this feature is great for us but terrible for greedeye

    I thought that was the point of these threads...so that they could make improvements on the stuff we want, not say, "Well that'll never happen."

    How about, "Well we can't do it like that because _________ ...."

    A refit bay wouldn't just be for new empty hulls. Could it be used for that? I'm sure they could make it to where the ship can't be refit in the Ship Garage unless it was already previously fitted. Either way, when I'm building newly unlocked hulls but need to revamp my destroyer or battleship fleets with tech that was just won in the latest event I don't want to have to wait 3 weeks to start changing ships I already have in my dock.

    Coins is not always the answer. Not everyone is just gonna whip out their wallet and throw credit card numbers at Kixeye because the ships take too long. Some people legitimately want to play the game for the fun value without spending $40 on a single hull build.

    Thing is, they've already answered this question dozens of times. Every single time, it's been, "No, this isn't going to happen, all build times would ultimately have to go up to keep our aim at balance."

    By all means, keep asking it, but you're not getting a different answer for this one.

    Funny thing is it doesn't unbalance anything...everyone gets the exact same result. If it effects everyone, then it can't be considered "unbalanced". The only balance that would change here is the balance of Kixeye's bank account from the relentless coiners. I remember the days when a game had a 1 time purchase price and that was it. Done. $59.99 and you got everything. The age of in-app purchase pay-to-win games just completely disrupts the gamer-developer relationship.

    I'll tell you what's unbalanced: a single player with coiner fleets that can literally shut down an entire alliance because NOBODY can throw a single fleet at it that can touch it.

    This happens all the time. The sector chat is full of screaming heads demanding something be done...


    So if balance REALLY  was an issue...that wouldn't be.
