    Guessing what they're going to do is easy, when on the other hand...

    https://community.kixeye.com/discuss...mment/3955027/
    So I figured ships costing uranium were on the horizon over a year ago. Well the regular scattergun in the upcoming event has a U cost to build (27,500) so that opens the door wider than the goatse guy for just that. You can see for yourself in the shipyard in game now.

    DR taking a vacation makes sense now. This is kind of a dick move to do with no warning. The other thing it does is solidify the ability to now purchase uranium. Coining your walls bypassed the U cost. I guarantee coining you're ships will too, but you're paying the bloated res cost as well to do that.

    It's the next step in revenue generating additions to the game. Think about it. Armadas won't be available. Who knows what will really give uranium in the event (and the paltry amount for points earned is going to be a greater joke now to some). Anyone that pops a fleet of these out with the new guns will have paid a serious premium. From a $ standpoint, I see it being a raging success for Kix as people can't help but feed the beast.

    so about the same cost as a level 6 turret ... seems fair enough if it means a massive saving in build-time

    only one's squealing on the forums are the "gimme"s who will get the hull won for them

    your continued failure to understand game mechanics is a source of eternal amusement, MB

    Most people who are okay with it justify it with the argument that it is balanced with a very low build time, these things shouldn't go hand in hand with each other. Build times should be low period, and Uranium may be piss easy for me to get, but it's not for everyone, this is yet again the issue with Kix's thinking. They think everyone has tigers with styx and can kill armadas as easily as taking a shit.

    It won't be long till everything costs Uranium to build, and it'll be things far more valuable to the game than a base hitting weapon that won't ever get in range of any ship that defends said base.

    You surely understand that any change Kix has made to try and improve things always comes with a "balancing" downside. The ones that haven't they quit doing. Repair specialists for example.

    Why can't they just reduce them without a uranium cost? Not saying its hard to get but it takes time to gather that much U.

    Many of us had predicted it after learning all the things done in WC with thorium.....we knew their roadmap would cross over. Kixeye has not been very original when it comes to gaming. This was a natural step in progression

    progression? LOL
    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

    Just another layer of bullshit that we all expected but hoped wouldn't happen. So sick of this rubbish game, only sticking around out of habit.
