Well I canceled my subscription and that made me feel a little better. Then I tried to complain on forums but fanboys flamed me ultra hardcore until I felt worse and devs arent doing anything. So if you've come here looking for help you'll either be ignored or flamed by most except for the very rare mature people.
there is nothing about this "bug" that isn't part of the time-sink mindset. The, hey, sit around and have lots of downtime doing nothing while you pay for this game. You can say that this was for afker's, but really, it wasn't.
It's bad on the replay value, when you are trying to grind your toon past the crap lowbie levels with the crap ships. And the way endgame encounters are programmed now, there will be a lot of ppl sitting around and doing nothing as the spawns are gone... and will be for several minutes.
So please, either undo this stupid nerf, or balance the game mechanics in return - ie, increasing spawns and spawn rates.
Don't just make a bloody timesink and give nothing in return. It's a bad move and will peeve heaps of my carebear bretheren who just enjoy mindless explosions nonstop. Keyword: nonstop.
