[-] Slot should not expire for non crowded airport...
« on: May 29, 2017, 12:10:02 AM »
buying slot for every flight is super tideous can we at least make it less so by allowing us to buy slot at once without need to further clicking about it for non crowded airports? Also the one click slot purchase thing mentioned in another feature request

It is troublesome to keep reacquire slots while planes keep arriving according to queue

You can open the route without acquiring slots, and only acquire them when your aircraft arrives.

Yes, still, whenever a new aircraft arrive, you need to acquire slot for every route flown by the aircraft, each at a time. The option to click open route without acquiring slot is also additional two click per route. Additionally if a weekly flight is separated into different fligiht and whenever you want to change the flight's schedule before any of those aircraft arrive, when you edit those route, you also need additional 14 clicked to click not to acquire slots one by one.

So.. you're saying that game rules which have been implemented in response to prior abuse of the slot system and enforced by these systemic expiration controls should also be changed? Or are you saying that there should be an exception to the rules?

Not sure about you, but I'd rather have a level playing field for all players, especially after doing the grind in slot constrained airports.

Agreed with Schro. My company is wealthy enough to buy all slots in Warsaw, for example, which is not slot contrained yet in GW3, and to prevent any opposition from going there. Powerful companies are powerful enough. Don't give them more tools to oppress you.

I was thinking about it should only expire when there are really limited resources, if you can still fly for example 5+ frequency into the airport every hours then I don't think it matters a lot to have slot expiration or not.

However, once you buy all slots in WAW, WAW would become a crowded airport and thus your slots will start to expire. If it is afraided that players might use it to control some particular slot time for example early morning departure bank, then make slot expires once the hour become crowded hour too. IMO that would be better than making them expire universally.
