Thank you all for your feedback on the changes to repair costs introduced with Game Update 1.7. Upon review, we agree with you that repair costs did become too high with this latest Game Update. To that end, we will be making a change to how these repair costs are calculated, starting with our next scheduled maintenance. Repair costs will now be calculated based on the combined value of all the mods installed in the shell, excluding the value of the shell itself. Players will see a noticeable reduction immediately after the change goes in.

Additionally, wed like to apologize for the inconvenience that we introduced.

As a thank you for your patience during this time, we will also be reducing ALL repair costs by 50% once the aforementioned change goes in with the next scheduled maintenance. This will last all the way through until early access to Rise of the Hutt Cartel launches.

Your feedback is important to us, and we hope that this resolution alleviates the repair costs concerns. Thanks again for your patience.

Ya. Couple threads about it all ready. Mainly the one this was posted in.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

technically not a refund, they will be implementing a discount on future repair bills to compensate people.

Also not a revert. Sounds like they are just refactoring repair cost calculations again, but in away that costs less and makes a level of sense.

Without being either a revert or a refund, not much left of your thread title

I read the title thinking we were getting a refund then realized I was trolled. Not a refund. It's a sale.

Eesh. So much nitpicking. He's just trying to bring this to more people's attention. A lot of people don't check the dev tracker, so it's a good thing.

If you''ll ask suspicious me, after recalculations and end of 50% discount, repair prices will still be much higher then pre-1.7 and not that much lower then post 1.7.
Frontal assault failed, so now we are being flanked. People will subconsciously accept that they repair cheaper only due to discount that will eventually end ,thus when it will indeed end, repair prices almost identical to ones we have right now will not cause such an outcry .

Agreed. The point is, they heard you and they are doing something about it. Not only acknowledging it, but reworking the repair costs and discounting it even more.

So... there you go. I thought we would see more posts positive about the change and a few more thank yous. And... of course a few peeps patting themselves on the back too.

No I don't thank EAware for blatantly gouging and lying to its playerbase about the repair cost calculations, and then facing the huge uproar backpedaling like there is no tomorrow.

Why should I thank them? It would be like thanking the guy who just mugged you in the street for hitting you then he stop bashing your head against the wall and you tell him thank you?

The people I thank are all the players who caused such an outcry that they forced EAware to back down.
