I started a refit the other day, then cancelled it almost immediately because I wanted to change ONE weapon. I noticed that my zynth was 2,000,000 lower than it was before I started the refit. I did not even have enough res to start another refit. This is ridiculous. I am not playing a game where the designers intentionally steal from the players.
Here is Kixeye's response:

Thank you for contacting us. Please be aware that you do not recover 100% of your resources after cancelling a refit. This is an intentional game mechanic. I hope this clears up any confusion.
Good luck in battle.

You ever ask WHY it's a game mechanic? WHY is Kixeye intentionally stealing from us? 2 MILLION in zynth just because I cancelled a refit is ridiculous. It was a DreadX mortar ship btw.

Dude, if you want to accept the company stealing from you, that's your decision. I'm personally tired of it. Just because they included automatic theft as part of their game from the beginning doesn't make it right.
You can keep paying them to steal from you if you want, I'm not.

Think of this: Every time you cancel a ship build or refit, and they take some resources, Kixeye is stealing your time. Every time you coin in battle or during a raid, and need those resources, now they are stealing your money.

Look at it this way its like starting your car and shutting it off right away and starting it again you dont have the same amount of gas you did on the first start because you used more gas restarting your car then you would have just keeping it running ...OMG are the car companies stewaling from us too? lol . Open a couple of 51 salvs or smack a base and get over it.

Joe, you must be a Kixeye employee. No regular player would see it that way.

Closing thread as OP is under the incorrect assumption of basic game mechanics that exist across all of Kixeye's games.
