Title: Research Lab
Post by: Pie on March 28, 2014, 04:45:02 PM
Has there been a change to how research times are calculated?

I have 1 level 40, 1 level 36 and the rest are level 39. They all have lab droids.

When I'm occupying territories to take the bonus to 75%, the research times on all planets are identical, regardless of individual lab level.

A fellow alliance member has reported there is no difference between a level 10 and a level 30, once the 75% bonus is in play!

Please fix BFG! - Research times are way to long as it is, without losing benefits from investing (heavily!) in extra research labs.

Bonuses are capped at 75%. We do not plan on removing this.

cofuzzeled, and even matt missed it here...

If you are saying there is no difference between a lvl 10 and a lvl 30 then what are you complaining at?

Having checked all of mine, it actually displays the FASTEST build in each lab (based on your highest lab level)

[i will probably need correcting here, but simply upgrading a level doesn't add a bonus, it simply reduces time]

I gurantee, if you remove your 75% cap, there will be a noticeable difference between a lvl 29 and lvl 30, let alone a lvl 10 & lvl 30

I'm sure research times were reduced when adding a lab level, much the same way as adding a foundry level or shipyard level which increase regardless of bonus, otherwise it would be pointless building a lab to anything beyond 10 (as it stands now) if all you need to do is occupy a few territories to get bonus to 75%

Wait... I've confused myself...I'm thinking that higher labs on planets should show faster times but if it takes total labs and displays that way then I'm wrong and what Kru is saying is correct, I'll go away now, lol
