There will be just a handful of queues that people bother with such as fleet alert and ise, the rest will gather dust and as a result the player base will get bored very quickly and do something different.
As I said before, a monumental miscalculation justified by a plainly absurd argument given to Brandon by a Dev team that forgot to add it when the coding was finished and now don't want to have to do it again because it would delay S7 and the sale of the Vesta. They are putting short term financial gain ahead of the continued success of the game and the wishes of the the most vocal and committed fans - or in orther words commercial suicide brought about by incompetence and inability to admit mistakes.
Couldn't agree more!
It's ironic really - we forum users often disagree on many things, but as you say, there has been almost unanimous concern expressed about this. I realise that forum users actually only make up a small percentile of the overall users of the game itself, but when we're all singing from the same proverbial hymn sheet it does suggest that it is something that REALLY needs to be addressed.
