Has anyone else noticed that the cost of the perks and the expiration date has changed for some of the perks? wondering if it is a player wide thing or if the devs are "experimenting" again?

It seems an experiment, some players get 4 day long perks, others get a single hour.

Yeah, on each of my 2 accounts, times are different on my 2nd, they remain the same on my main acct.

I have 25% of the cost, but they only last one hour with a cooldown of six hours. Completely worthless now; I can't even keep perks activated while playing for a stretch because they'll all go on cooldown.

These plus the other "reports" may indicate a new possible Squad Wars "event" is coming soon.

I would prefer that to some random "A/B Test" being done by Game Developers.

I guess we will just have to wait and see...

My perks have just dropped in cost to 10% of their previous values. Which makes them useful. Unfortunately they only last 1 hour.

Stop by for Wars, perks and rep points. We're maxed out.

Squad Perks: Starship decreased commission time

Subject: Squad Perks: Starship decreased commission time

My squad is level 20 with numerous tier 4 perks, they still don't balance out the cost of the perk for 12h.
The most useful perk doesn't exist:
Starship decreased commission time

Fair enough later perks allowing decreased commission cost might be useful spending on perk cost, but my loadout: 2× TIE Interceptors, 6× TIE Defenders takes 2 hours 20 minutes!
Less than 12 matches per day assuming I wanted full loadout...


Addition: I agree with the above posts stating squad troop donation number and rerequest time reduction, and to a lesser degree droideka repair reduction time are the only semi-useful perks - especially regarding cost effectiveness.
Possibly at very high tier level, as long as the increase in perk cost per tier is low, then it might balance out - especially if you have really need one resource and have spare of the other.

Currently i mostly use perks to reduce my available resources before log off; in an attempt to try to reduce raid chance; i'm a new HQ9 and have alot of upgrading to do.

The only ones that I've found to provide decent value are the donation increase and deka repair. Haven't really used the donate time reduction as I rarely use the SC on attack.

I have spend on the loot generation rate boosts, but only to sink credits. Otherwise, they come more than they return.

I'm on the game quite a bit so having this reduced to 1 hour limits with 6 hour cool downs makes the whole idea now pretty useless. I'm basically out of perks for the day so this feature has become a total disappointment. :evil: Would prefer it went back to the original time limits.
