Hangar quick travel costs.

Recommended Posts

I just want to hear the opinions of the other players about this,

R15 - 800k per changing hangars is insane, for your monocrystal contracts, ok.

You can also fly with a fast recon to the other station.

But for contracts? No. This is ridiculous. Pay credit amount of 1x successful T5 Premium PvE Mission for changing contracts once.

This is...

I play maybe 2-4 hours per day, get maybe 2mil for playing a few rounds T3 (with licence) and even don't make any profit because the costs of changing hangars are too high, and i even don't want to spend time with travelling in space.

200k was already bad, 800k is insane. Way too much.

Of course there are rich players who think, 800k is almost nothing.

But 1,6 Mil for doing all 3 contract sides per day is unacceptable.

My suggestions:

Go back to 200k or less.

Make changing voucher contracts free again, or with low costs.

What you devs did to newbs is ok, but even for a R15 player 800k is not less.

Well 1.6 Mil since you only switch faction twice, and tomorrow another mission will pop in your hanger, but still that is a lot to ask. A hot fix to revert back to 200,000 would be reasonable, ain't nobody got credits for that.

Anyway, this huge increase of costs was not nessecary.

3 minutes? Record that! Sounds so impossible to me.

Today I just wasted 2400000 credits. Wonderful...

However, I still got almost 440 million credits, so it's not a big deal for me.

Still, 200000 credits was fine. To force people to choose 100GS or 800000 credits, most people would just go with 100GS. That's thier goal. Golden Money, GS.

For me, it's always the regular money, never GS, or 7 minutes of travel in T5 Jarl Recon, but never in 3. It's impossible!

Average is 4.30 empire to jerry is the fastest, but fed to empire or jerry is about 5 min considering fueling times

The whole mechanics is broken.

You play in a squad. 

"Hey, guys, I just finished my Empire contracts. Time to switch to Federation. Wait 5 minutes for me or play 1 match without me"
*Getting back*
Some other member needs to change.
We run 3 men squad and somebody wants to join, but we save the spot for the guy traveling or just screw him and let him search for other people?

 

Just insane. ~200-300K per match income (with license) and change every 5-6 matches as long as you pay for ammo, repairs (some people die a lot, do not forget), and saving up for next tier ships that cost Millions.

The bigger problem is players who are stuck at Rank 9.

 

They do not have the option to fly through the Frontier, so they are forced to pay credits (or gold) if they want to change their contracts. I don't know what the exact price is currently for Rank 9, but price scales with faction level.

 

So this means a player who is just below a Rank 10 ship will be forced to dump a ton of credits if he hopes to do multiple faction contracts, at the same time that he/she is trying to save up several million for their first Rank 10 ship.

 

If the developers want to introduce a sharp price-hike once the player reaches Rank 10, that is one thing. At least we have a free option. My heart goes out to the poor Tier 3 guys.

Confirmed, not a perfect warp but takes about 4 minute to travel between Empire and Jerico. Didn't test Fed but 5 minute sounds legit. Total time including refuel and loading would be around 10 minutes to switch twice for daily mission.

What I will do is do the missions 1 day yes and 1 day no. So the second day I'll have to make 2 missions per hangar. So I'll have to travel less.

That's smart. I do them if i have time... So maybe once per week.

Remember that you can only accumulate 2 missions per faction. So you would lose a lot of monocrystals if you do once per week.

Yes, i knew that.

But the Reason why i play this game is making PewPewPew with m8s.

Not flying around and do dailies or grind. That's way too boring.

I'm with most of you. I find it completely absurd to raise it that much. It is already a grind to grab monocrystals and attempt to build a ship. This is just ridiculous though. Go back to the old way. Nothing was wrong with it, so stop trying to squeeze more credits out of me.

I am so filty rich, that the only thing I want it to use, is standard in game money conversion system for monocrystals.

 

1000000 credits = 1 monocrystal

10000000 credits = 10 monocrystals

100000000 credits = 100 monocrystals

 

We need those free options!

Same goes for Crew/Implants options!

 

We can expect 7 more ships of top secret design, since we already have 3. Each role will be experimental. Jericho will have one additional experimental ship as well. Torpedo frigate. Rank 14 will probably be moved to rank 15.

10 ships will require a total 8400 monocrystals, not to mention all of mk - V weapons, modules and even equipment in the future from T3 - T5.

The amount of money you would need to invest is ***rageous.

Oh, did I mention Shipyard features and Dreadnoughts?

It will get even more fun and expensive soon.

 

P.S.: This is only my speculation, but I am usually correct with my assumptions.

Crystals are rare. Who would sell them for cheap filthy credits? Your suggestion makes little sense. They already sell them for GS.

I went from Jericho to Fed in six minutes even, and that was getting a little lucky and finding enough fuel early to not stop later.  Going back took me seven and a half, partly for fuel.

 

I don't have a problem with 800k to change docking stations, but 800k to change factions for contracts is insane.  I'm guessing the devs were thinking of limiting monocrystal farming rather than loyalty grinding.

Like everything else.

 

Then farm or pay, like in every other F2p in existence.

100 millions to get 100 monocrystals is more than just fair. It's just!

I could buy 10 T5 ships for that price! To be honest, you can only upgrade one T5 weapon to mk V once with it. You need 70 of them.

I would still say, that the price is fair enough, even if you could invest regular credits.

Credits without resources are not worth much. Selling price for them isn't 100000 credits, but lousy 8000. Not even 10% of your investment would go back, but less than 1%, to be exact, 0,8%.

It's not cheap at all. If it's free to play, you should have the options to get them for free as well. Same for the Crew/Implants.

 

Did you forget the fact, if you want to get 5 million credits with GS conversion currency, you would need to pay 10000GS, which was/is almost one T5 premium ship.

That means that credits are extremely important, because you're stuck without them completely. You can't repair, buy or progress without them. Without GS you can, but not without those "cheap filty credits" as you call them.

 

I never actually wanted to sell monocrystals, but to convert credits to get them. I never said that, so I assume, you complained about credit price to obtain them or you simply misread my message.

 

That's all. No hard feelings. That's my point of view.

You say that because you have several hundreds on your bank.

Irrelevant, no one in their right mind would use that feature. So the point is not valid at all.

 

 

That means that credits are extremely important, because you're stuck without them completely. You can't repair, buy or progress without them. Without GS you can, but not without those "cheap filty credits" as you call them.

 

 

They are important for players who need to buy something. In your case, you have if not everything almost everything, that's why credits are worthless for you, and that's why you can afford throwing a hundred million of them for monocrystals. But again, that doesn't mean it's a fair trade.

 

GS in the other hand are the right money to pay for monocrystals since it's the money that prevents you for grinding.

Again, if you're not willing to pay real money for them, just do the daily grind and you will get them eventually.
