Mess Hall clarification

Can someone from DB please confirm what the new "Mess Hall" room does?

The official announcement says it reduces the "credit cost" of replicating.
But the in-game text specifically says it reduces the "fuel cost".

We've been told in the past that we should trust the in-game text when it conflicts with official announcements. Is that the case here?

    I didn't even notice that! If it's fuel cost and not credit cost that is pretty lame... If it's both then it's epic!

  • @Shan @Black Pebble Just came here to ask this question myself after tossing the question out to my fleet mates on Discord.

    I would side with you on it being lame if it is replicator fuel and not credits. I am sure DB would be called out on it heavily if it is fuel since it is so easy to get via voyages and schematics. I personally could go 6+ months with no replicator fuel from voyages and most likely still have some schematics and replicator fuel left over.

    I know right! I have something like 3200 Purple Replicator Rations and the same in Blue. It's the credits that are killing me.

    i'd much rather have it be a reduction in fuel.

    This room reduces the credit cost and the in-game text will be corrected to reflect that.
    Thank you for pointing it out!

  • @The Great Gornholio -10% isn't much considering that we are getting 3 more uses and for me that adds up to 8 per day. I try not to replicate anything higher than 0-1* items, so I can usually make more from dailies, arena, gauntlet, voyages and missions than what I normally use for replication.

    @Shan I second this. Thank you for the clarification.

    I'm just excited for both! 8 Replications per day will be EPIC. Also, I craft a LOT of 5* items so the 10% will help me quite a bit too. 25k off 5* items adds up lol

  • The little icon in the game has the credit icon on it even.

    Yes but they're always telling us to trust the in-game text on things like portal contents.
  • True. I just meant that it made sense it was a text error in game. Release notes and icon > in game text or if they have 2 out of 3 saying the same thing I'd hope the 2 is correct.

    Trusting the in game comments, it appears you can get all manner of interesting rewards I.ve never seen on Voyages. Just click the little I in a circle on the voyages screen to see an ever changing array of sample items you can't have.
