This is one of those posts where I can only scatch my head at some of the responses. Are people just so used to crappy nonsense mechanics that it seems okay that something you have already paid to do (have two builds going at once) requires you to pay more to keep doing before your subscription has ended? Because reasons? It sounding complicated (it doesn’t) is not a very convincing argument against it, but that’s just me.
If I want to buy elite for a week and start my storage at beginning and spend the rest of the week speeding other things with timers, I’d better damn well be able to, and accept that when elite runs out, any second building I haven’t sped would stop upgrading. Not like I’d be getting anything I didn’t pay for. If I wanted that I’d quit the game.
PS When my Atlas elite runs out sometimes the 16k hats remain for that next build and sometimes they don’t. I never thought anything of it one way or the other
