    Way to go Chris, as CM you allowed KIXEYE to take a massive dump on all their players right before a major event. Free refits are not enough, coin reimbursement per ship should be in order.

    Free refit on the entire content of the fleetbay would be in order...then i want to see some changes that would bring the game forward. Pleasing the coiners, the semicoiners and the noncoiners...

    Adressing the powercreep, bring old content back into the game...

    Lower refit/build times down to earth again...

    You got a few chances left to bring life into this game again...

    Kixeye you keep nerfing the ships we work hard to get and then some of us pay for the upgrades how are we suppose to trust that you won't keep doing it like you have done with the punisher yet again. This time round you really screwed it. So the carrier is out and I was considering getting the deal that always comes along but since I can't trust that you won't nerf the carrier I'll have to give it a miss.

    One question that should be addressed by Kixeye... they are giving free refits for those ships that are overweight, however if a player has credits for some items the game force the player to use those items. How kixeye is going to address that issue? For instance I have binary thruster credits and I wont to keep them for other builds, not to waste them when I am supposedly entitled to a free refit

    I took a look into the downtime & releas notes but, i couldn't find anything about talonit plates. What is the reason to make them useless, why do they have to lose the repairtime bonus?

    Free refit means, FREE refit. Free refit but being charged Helium and AM is not free...Not that I care. I've scored so much AM from Mk drop boxes instead of patterns anyway

    "...FIXED: It was discovered that certain Base Turret Blueprints were giving incorrect XP. These are being corrected and Base Level will automatically be recalculated. This should only result in base levels going lower and is not part of the normal XP tuning update that we do every 3 months..."

    It was about Storm Driver Turret, the ONLY good(But not so powerful enough) Base defense weapon, so far.

    KIXEYE, You (or is a "it" is) are doing a truth **** about bases and this **** keeps rolling. Bases do need some attention. Instead you are screwing it up, ALWAYS!

    Dude, he can't do ****, he just passes us the info that devs want to make public.

    Also: Fix Talonite Plates.
    Xeno and Plasma damage are a mistake.

    OK so free refit to remove the things ive just spent a week fitting, awesome and for that i get lesser ships and 48hrs to refit, great that really is awesome, ill get 2 maybe 3 ships refitted to make up for a weeks lost effort. I give up, trying to catch up in this game is just impossible.

    "...FIXED: Punisher Cruisers were incorrectly applying their -% Armor Mass bonus to weapons and specials that are not considered Armor, even though they provide health. This Armor Mass bonus should only apply to items in an Armor Slot and the Armored Hold special(Corrected), nothing else. This has been fixed, and will likely result in a weight increase for most upgraded Punisher Cruisers. If your ship becomes overweight, it will automatically trigger a free refit..."

    "KICKBALLEYES", YOU just **** up another thing!!Now, is mandatory my **** punishers need to give up or firepower or defense armor(I won't take out resistors!)

    GREAT **** WORK ON VEGA!! Congratulations!

    I had to refit my Mark 4 pun.  With a little tweaking and looking at the stat box while moving things around I was able to keep the DPS I added while only losing 2 percent of hit points and adding some projectile resistance while I was at it..  
    Cause I used that "Useless" Deflector Armor they've been giving out like candy in CW's 

    NEVER Discount any tech that they put in the game, you never know when it will come in useful

    I must have missed the section that stated repair time was going to be increased for talonite plates...

    Hey all - I'm out of the office today for 4th of July but just checking in. I've reached out about the following issues that have been reported from the update:

    1) Talonite Plates have increased in repair time.
    2) Spectre Wings and Talonite Plates aren't available to add to buildings despite being owned in inventory.

    I will follow up on this tomorrow once I have an answer.

    If you have instant refit credits for overweight punishers you can use them even if your factory is busy.

    I don't but my fleet is still overweight, the ships themselves are not, but now my fleet is by about 1.5k tonnage. This basically means i can't fit my 5 punishers and can only fit 4 in a fleet. I now have to cancel my 13 day battleship build in order to refit prior to event and hopefully knock off enough tonnage to add the 5th punisher. Was gonna buy more coins in the future, already spent about 80 bucks on the game in the past 5 months, but now I don't think so.

    I understand if Kixeye would like to redistribute moving forward, but what they are not taking into consideration is that a great deal of people coined to get those ships up and running.  Free refit is fine, but what about the missing or spent coins.  Its the same as ordering the greatest new laptop on line and they send you the 2001 version and the company saying we are going with these, but thank you for your money.  It is decisions like these that kill a game and drive productive players away.  If you stay be careful giving Kixeye money for coins they are likely to take your cash and give you nothing in return.

    CCP, Bethesda, and Paradox thank you for your shenanigans.

    Strange you should pull this nonsense while the Steam Summer Sale is on (ends tomorrow).

    I have full sympathy for you, but if you had followed some simple steps some of those have been highlighted many times in the forums you could have avoided it
    1) Start the minimum built, always built blank hulls
    2) Refit one or two items at a time, is good to be able to grab some refitting discounts that might come along
    3) Check the forums and seek your clan advice, be aware in advance of changes
    4) If you had followed 1 or 2, you could have added some special (those for T4 and T5) to have your punishers overweight by the time the update was completed
    5) Use vega calculator (thanks Mr. TopGear) to plan in advance your builds, most important when Kixeye announces changes to weight of ships

    I've had enough of you people at Kixeye changing up my stuff i spend my time building so unlike a lot of other players I'M gone ...finished scraping all my ships and base so thx for the screwing......



    Just be warned, if the game turns around, you are basically screwed. either having to start a new base, or building up that one from scratch.


    I am yet hopeful they will turn around.

    So I am just going to throw this out there.


    Now that punishers are "fixed", we have to choose between firepower and armour. This was fully intended at the beginning of the xeno season. punisher takes hits, everything else deals hits.


    I don't like it, I had to down my weapons to regular distintegrator, and XD 1 to keep the armour, but this is how kix said it would be. no xeno ship should be so good that you don't need the others. and now, they want us to coin the others so we can do events properly, rather than using a loophole.

    Oh, and when is the next FB lv? with the possible mass of the Paladin and xeno ships, there is no way we can fit a paladin and a full fleet, or even a partial fleet.
