    I don't think the admins have seriously considered this yet, this is an individual post of a member, not an official poll bound for a change... And actually, I was happy as it was with the 1200s we used to have, the 3000s was just a pretty recent change, the 1200s was good enough, at least there was a working pressure, now there's just some guys that are trying to fuck up half of the arena for some 2 full hours, just coz they are lazy enough to crouch up into the laser sight of one of them bombers... sjesus, I won't have that

    It would cripple the gameplay even further

    greetze, Zembla

    Hi Zembla,

    I think you didn't get the point. This time is for downed strategical targets, such as factories, refineries, ports, cities... They rule the economy of the country, consequently fields' rebuildings. Lately people started to attack strategical targets, attacking refineries, bridges, factories.... but got a little frustrated, since as soon as they land, the factory they bombed is back to full operational capacity, ie. they just wasted their time attacking these targets.

    Yes, it is in consideration. Discussed also in beta forums.

    Also laserbombing is soon history.

    Then level bombers will be only used to carpet bomb industry.

    Which is quite realistic.

    So it will be very necessary to increase d time and effect of industry if you want to see bombers at all

    I understand why you edit the poll (3000 secs for 2000 secs) but why did you modify the other option?

    I don't think that is fair. People voted because they *wanted* it to be raised to 7200 secs and now you change it to "somewhere up to 7200 secs" which leaves a lot of grey areas (it coud be 2100 seconds for instance).

    I'm sorry but I don't think that's right. You'll end up biasing the poll. Please set it back to how it was formerly stated.

    now all people have options.
    before people couldnt vote for 2100. not even 7199. thats biased. or excluding? i think 2nd is best.

    i let you reconsider. (i want you to read this post 1st)
    if you still want change, i change, but personally think its better this way.

    Ok, now it has been proved that most people want to have the downtime for strategic targets raised.

    Nicae, can you talk to developers and get their attention to this matter?

    Thanks in advance! :)
