Hello again everyone! Thanks again for the continued discussion. I’ve finally caught up with the new posts in this thread and today I’m able to share with you all a few changes to the the plan that we’re making based on your feedback so far.

We’re removing the Standup GTFO from the plan. We completely agree with the concerns raised about this module in high-load situations and since we haven’t been seeing much excitement or interest in using it in lower load fight either we’ve decided to simply drop it from the plan.

We’re removing the 5 minute fitting period from the plan as well. We won’t rule out potentially re-adding it in the future if the meta has changed enough due to other changes that it becomes necessary or helpful, but we’re happy to leave it out of the initial release and see how things go.

Doubling the final “last stand” hull repair timers for all Upwell Structures to 30m. This provides more time for attackers to get into position or to reposition, and should slightly mitigate some of the extra challenges in high-load fights. This doubling would not impact the initial deployment hull repair timers which would stay at 15m. We are investigating options around dilating repair timers, but we can’t make any promises in that direction as there are technical concerns that haven’t been fully estimated.

Thanks again for the feedback and keep it coming!
