I build a cruiser. It travels at an acceptable speed, not fast, but it moves.
Later, after a few games, I notice that the ship is not moving half as fast as it was, in fact, hardly at all, like its in molasses.
I have not added any weight, the ship remains as I built it. I have added another thruster, and have upgraded thrusters TWICE, and still, it hardly moves at all.
This is wrong. It is unacceptable. In the end I really don't care what the reason will be, it is just plain wrong.
This is the kind of thing that turns me away from a game. I have spent real U.S. Dollar on this game, and I will not spend any more until this issue is resolved. There is no reasonable cause that I can see for this.
I can understand game balance, putting me in with a mojority of people I have no chance against for some form of challenge.
But this, however it is done, and for whatever excuse, is effectively rigging the game!
I will not tolerate any more of this and want this dealt with and fixed.
