Patch 5.12 Economy Changes Detailed

NikoPower on the NA Forums has posted a handy table outlining what the recent changes to repair costs mean for each individual ship. Generally speaking, high-tier tech tree ships are affected the most, while premium ships are still helped by the changes, just not as much because they don’t exactly need help earning credits.

NA Repair Costs Change

I mentioned previously that the reduced high-tier repair cost on NA was going to be continued for another month. This is still true, but there’s a little twist to the story now: the affected tiers are from 7 to 10, rather than 8 to 10, and repair costs at tier 10 are now reduced by 40% instead of 25%, the discount for tiers 7 to 9.

Another note brought up here is that this doesn’t affect premium ships – not that they really need it.
