Everyone: Guys, I know it's not happening. It's too good to be true, I know. And seriously, when was the last time that the devs took a look at the suggestions posted in this thread and implemented a couple of ideas? That's right, it has never happened (and probably never will). We all know that this section of the forums contains all our secret desires we know that will never become real.xD
Dark Curse: I'm sorry, but all of your arguments are pretty much invalid. First of all, inactive players wouldn't bother upgrading their Droidekas. Heck, I doubt they would bother upgrading to the next level. Also, "a player who's been playing this game for 7 months should have level 30 Droidekas". Not sure if you're trying to be funny, but this line was comical at least. I've been playing this game for a year and a month. I've gotten all the way to level 8, maxing out everything in the process, and now I'm about to hit level 9. My Droideka is far from maxed out though. It's sitting at level 18. I don't think I'll be able to max it out before I get to level 9 ans let me tell you, it's not because I'm not active enough to collect contraband. It's because the greatest anount of contra I've ever found in a base while searching was somewhere like 14K. Most of the time, I don't find half as much in a base while scouting for an entire day. And apart from that, I'm a Rebel: The second I log off, some random loser hits me and steals my contra. The only planet where I'm not attacked as soon as I log off is Er' Kit, where all I come across is broke bases. So please don't tell me thag I'm not trying hard enough to gather enough contra to upgrade my Deka. It's wrong, not to mention stupid.
And finally... I've never heard of a single player who struggles to find enough alloy to upgrade a turret yet has no trouble grinding insane amounts of contraband. So pardon me when I say that I find it hard to believe that a player who claims he can upgrade his dekas to level 30 in 7 months can't raise enough alloy to get his turrets to level 9.
