For sure. I'm guessing it was just a few defenses that you took out.

I'd like to know this too, personally I'm only using AntiGame, but I don't really know of any others.

antigame and infocompte.

I swear battle simulations are a life saver.

Although it PISSES ME OFF that my entire fleet won't be affected but my cargo ships will be decimated as fuck - weak little fuckers.. now I gotta boost my WSA technology to mind bogglnig levels..

there have been a lot of targets I have decided agaisnt attacking just becasue the amt of cargos I'd lose just wasn't worth the amt I'd gain.

and that becoems the problems when you form a large fleet.. they suck up deuter.. and you don't GET enough deuter back.. but everything COSTS ridiculous amts of deuter and crystal at this point.. it's a neverendign cycle of attack and fail.. as you need to go farther and farther out once your farms and users get tapped..

I can see why it's harder to raise in rank at this point.. I mean I'm currently at 343.. but I'm just raising at a CRAAAWL..

Five. Although it takes up a slot of its own and the energy costs to keep it up are pretty high, so really just a couple land slots.

Its really easier to just dismantle buildings you don't quite need when facing this issue early on.

1:44:8 is currently attacking me.. well.. he will be in 2 hours.

I told him itll all be gone by the time he reaches me.. we'll see what happens. He targeted me at a time when all my fleets are out.

he's ranked 92 I think.

indeed - you're next - welcome to the main course for ranks 1-100 - sadly we are the meal :P

these higher ups are in for a nasty surprise though.. can't fuck with a fleetsaving miner.

I'm tempted to either upgrade my mines or move it to another planet and wait to upgrade hyperspace drive to level 6... hmmm.. decisions decisions..

Joined about 20 minutes ago so I'm still getting to grips with that the hell I'm supposed to be doing.

I have level 3 Metal Mine and just built a Solar Plant, not entirely sure what to do now other than keep upgrading.

I'm sure I'll figure it out, but it seems like I'd be better off if I'd joined back when this thread first popped up, oh well, shouldn't be too hard.

The only people I get probed by are by to 150 ranked players because they're looking for weaker opponents. Kind of sucks because I'm in that rank range that has enough resources to make it worth it to those people yet I don't have nearly enough weapons to survive an attack. To emphasize that last point, the last guy who attacked me sent out 500 battleships like it was no big deal.

So your strategy has been to put any resources that might go towards defense, into ships I take it?

It says you lost 249,000 worth of units. Must have been more than 2 heavy lasers and an ion cannon.

So this guy drkness(yes I know its not me lol) has been probing me a lot lately and I got this message just recently.

Contact with the attacking fleet has been lost.
(That means it was destroyed in the first round.)

I personally invest it into things that can't be destroyed like research and mines. I also fleetsave even when I'm online to avoid detection.

It may be silly to post this for fear of getting phlaxed, but what the hell. I usually have one fleet available so I can rush all my resources out of grubby hands.

Personally, since my fleet was destroyed a few days ago, my focus has been on rebuilding that. Actually thought it would take a week to do so and I'm already basically at the level I was at when I was attacked. I figure though that once my fleet is big enough (which it will be very soon) I'll be attacking other live players for a chance at bigger resources which will lead to upgrading mines etc etc.

Slightly stale news, but the guy who we attacked has another colony a few systems away from me. I'm not sure if attacking it would be overkill considering a clear message has already been sent.

yes it shows a crapload that he destroyed - however all of it was automatically rebuilt due to the 70% factor., so I only ended up actually losing 2 heavy lazers and one ion cannon. That is small fry to restore.

As for my strategy - minimal defenses - so small shield large shield and a couple of each type of defense - most of my resource go into indestructibles like research and mines - thus if stuff gets destroyed my rank does not get affected at all.

I think prinzy started to adopt my own strategy after I sorta laid it out for him - stupid me.. now he's nipping at my heels hahaha :P

also whenever I get a ship destroyed I always replace it with double, so my fleet slowly increases that way.

I also keep enough cargo ships collectively so that I can spirit stuff away if need be. The turtle miner strategy is not to be taken lightly. If you are vigilent it ensures that you will never lose anything massive, ever.

And well.. look at my rank.. I signed up a feel wek after most of you and yet it's still holding - and I attack active players all the time, even ones in large alliances.

You both make me lol.

In other news, I think it might be more beneficial for me to upgrade mines and solar plants above the standard rather than lug them around. Eventually I'm going to get caught and it isn't going to be pretty. I really don't want to lug around almost 100 large cargo ships either, it's a n expensive operation.
