I see this argument all the time
« on: July 30, 2012, 06:52:38 pm »
But I am going to bring it up here so that the dictators of Kixeye can't take off what they see as bad press.

The dry dock. Good or Bad?

I personally love the idea just because of the shier number of hulls there are now. But will Kixeye do it since essentially it will cause them to lose money because people won't have to coin ships as much?

I think for some reason they have the idea it will take away from their revenue. I dont see how I would speed up 2 ships at 1 or 2 days versus speeding up one ship at 4 days. So to me it seems they would make more money.. But its that Kixeye logic we have to worry about!

They have been slacking on it. People have been asking for it for a year now.

Seriously, two revenue streams to get my ships out faster? You kidding?

In the 90+ page (Before creative pruning) when I called him out on it, Paul said something about how it would effect play balance.. I said the only thing it would effect is KIXEYE's bank account balance.

Probably never see it. Companies often go against their customers wishes, if for no other reason to be contrary... just like my ex wives.

Remember those door handles on cars that you'd reach in and the level would be underneath, keeping snow and ice off the handle to prevent freezing? Didn't you like those? I did... that's why they stopped making those, they found out people liked them.

Don't think dry dock or something similar is a bad idea but also won't want to be around if it takes 7days to build siege cannon dread ship i.e if they reduced build times

I think its good,but kixeye thinks they will loose cash i guess.

We do have to remember,they are a buisness with employees to pay and people to hire and repairs to make and anything else that involves cash.

I would love a dry dock, and i dont see why kixeye wouldnt, i see them making more money cause people will be excited to see 2 ships being built.  It's not like were asking for a dry dock that lets us build a ship with no resources here.

There already is a Dry Dock available to us. Only it's not called DD as you'd expect but instead it's called CC.

I tallied it all up. between refits and building new fleets it is going to take me over a year and a half to get it all done.

And that number will only go up the more raids that happen.
