    There are lots of factors that need attention, build times and being married to one's initial build is worst of em.

    build time followed closely by repair times, because that is what is the foundation for the other issues, or at least would make it more bearable.

    in all honesty the repair/build/refit times for hulls should be 1 category, I can handle the building build times cause you can use base parts for all but the last few levels of some of the buildings

    Content first, repair times second, build third. Content includes tlc, chores and chase of shards small raid ideas.I know that all is a chase of money and keeping everyone busy but its getting too be to much

    I just don't have time for everything. Need to keep up to the necessary tasks, but then theres no time for the fun things. 

    Playing since Feb 2012.  Originally sector 304

    Repair/refit time
    for me its repair time.
    prepping a base and final hit mostly are about 20 coin. So thats 7-8 minutes of fun.Cause lets face it ,we all want to smash your enemy. Going to a bar is cheaper then playing this game for 1 hour.
    So bring down cost per hour playtime and i,ll be happy

    Refit times. Nearly impossible to do experiments with different builds.

    I chose lack of bacon. In reality its people making useless polls that increase the aggravation due to lack of bacon.

    I chose event time, but I do feel like repair times are equally as big of an issue. My problem with the event time is that the prize points are so out of wack. We had several specials and some hulls with point requirements that were nuts, especially given they were a year old. I truly liked the change to the Tier 8 targets this past raid with their point totals. I would like to go back to the days where 100-150 mil got you everything... not this I need 1 billion pts to take 1/2 of things..

    Repair/refit time
    Though it isn't on there another thing that irritates me is Kix sticking to a plan. Every time they dump one half stream I am irritated at the time lost. A few off the top of my head... FM tweaked multiple times within a 2-3 month period, Charged armor created then its refit time was altered and now it is being scrapped, Raid cycles going from 3 months to 4 months and then back agin to 3, PvP being thrown out of whack by a monthly event, and now the implementation of shard instead of straight up tech for players despite shard tech often being limited anyways.
    You will only receive my scorn from this point forward

    Repair/refit time
    my repair for my baser is like 15 gold, which is like 1:60 CAD which sure its not a "lot" but i like hitting bases so 1:60 say x 10 bases i hit kinda adds up quickly...

    I voted repair times, but an all of the above button would help. Additionally in order I would add chores build times, content overload.

    INCONSISTENCY.

    "Here's the new thing that is the way we will do this thing from now on."

    One Raid later, "Well, back to the old way, but more stupider......"

    Lack of Bacon
    My choice wasn't listed so...bacon. I dont like BPs not doing what they are supposed to, bungled attempts to "fix them" and a lack of notification of either the broken or the fix. A couple of examples.

    In the last Assault cycle drones gave out a stun which Phoenix and Skyfires are almost immune to. Apollos were immune in the first event, then they were "nerfed" so they were restricted to hitting the lower tier targets and whatever the nerf was it didn't just hurt Apollos it stunned them completely to death.. This nerf on Apollos still exists and it also exists on Manticores which are meant to be an upgrade on Phoenix/Skys. As those targets are being rotated out its not a big deal now but it was at the time and could have been handled with each hull in the class being given a stun resist stat.

    The splash damage reduction on Hyper 30 wasn't working. It was called up by players in the forum and but for one moderator who passed information as best he could, no players would have been any the wiser. This also applies to the "fix". No official notification anywhere from Kix.

    I can understand in a game of this complexity things can go wrong. Thats fine and I will be tolerant but those kind of broken things need calling up to all players because it affects their builds.
