    My U11 game is coming along well, found a stack of planets to raid and started a new colony yesterday.

    I just started my first colony. Not a bad planet either. It appears to have been a recently vacated one. :)

    Just noticed I got the highest score in the alliance. How did that happen!
    I suppose having some high producing planets nearby to raid with no defenses has helped. :)
    I've got 4 colonies now and I'm making cruisers. Should be able to make battleships soon.

    I've been doing very little lately, just a bit of research and upgrading stuff.

    Also, I have not raided anyone in about a week.

    I've been continually raided due to a lack of defensive infrastructure but the attacks have ceased now....for the time being, possibly because I've woken up and boosted my planets immunity quite a bit

    About to build a colony ship and send it to the far reaches as well

    I always attack people who are innactive and aren't part of an alliance. I'm certainly doing a lot better in this game than I am in my U12 game.

    Doing nicely folks. We're comfortably in the top 300 alliances now and I'm just a hair away from being in the top 1500 players. Just about ready to do some big fleet attacks. Just waiting on my first battleship. If any of you are getting trouble from anyone post it here and we'll see about joining forces for a little payback. :)

    I've dropped out, while I was away for 3 days I lost about 600,000 resources and every vessel I had. That'll learn me for not putting on vacation mode.

    And very nice it was too... I mean, that's ghastly! Did you catch the offender? ;) jk


    Hmm, so you're out as in, not playing anymore? Anythings come-back'able as long as you still have your planet. If you need resources, just ask (although the rules request that you trade for it)..

    I'm currently researching hyperspace engine level 4 - last bit of tech I need for battleships. I've put my uni12 game on vacation for a bit. I was getting just a tad too much attention from high ranking players with massive fleets. I'll concentrate on the uni11 game where I'm now ranked around 1200.

    I'm out for good I think.

    And with all the PC games that have dropped in my lap in the last 2 weeks I doubt I'll have any time for it anyway.

    I won't finish the research until tomorrow. Then I can build my first one. My defenses are borfering on ludicrous. I've been probed a lot but I seem to be too much effort to attack. I hope so anyway. To be honest, I'm kinda hoping someone will underestimate my defences and throw a moderate sized fleet at me so I can finally use my bloody salvage ship.

    long way to go to fleet crash.. did you get any resources out of it, what kind of losses did you take? (and his losses?)

    I lost a few light and one heavy fighter. He lost all but one ion canon, his shield and a few medium lasers. Somehow it ended up being a draw so I didn't get any res directly but 4 recyclers brought home full loads. I sent another smaller fleet back to clean up and get the res and got a big load.

    Someone attacked one of my colonies last night. The colony had some defenses but not enough to hold off a big attack. Fortunately, I noticed the incoming fleet before I went to bed and was able to get some ships from my main planet to arrive there just a few minutes before the attack.

    Starting stats

    The defender has won the battle!


    The attacker has lost a total of 458000 Units.
    The defender has lost a total of 115000 Units.
    At these space coordinates now float 107700 Metal and 53400 Crystal.
    The chance for a moon to arise from the debris is 1 %
    4 Small Laser, 1 Heavy Laser, 2 Ion Cannon could be repaired.

    All I lost permanently was a couple of small lasers, a few fighters and a couple of cruisers. In return I got a bloody massive debre field above the planet, which I'll harvest as quickly as I can. Not right now though since I've currently got a fleet from the moon of a rank 109 player on it's way to the same planet. This fleet's way more than I can handle so I've got every ship and all resources off planet. I noticed it just when I woke up and they hit in about another 15 minutes. There'll be nothing for him to take when he gets there. I'll probably lose a lot of my defenses but I can live with that.

    Crikey. Get a load of what this guy hit me with.

    I'd say 55 battleships is kinda overkill for that lil' colony of mine. I just hope he doesn't turn his attention to my main planet. At least he didn't get much. I spent my last bit of res on building a small laser less than a minute before he got there. He wasted his time.

    The attacker has won the battle!
    He captures
    8 Metal, 253 Crystal and 27 Deuterium


    The attacker has lost a total of 0 Units.
    The defender has lost a total of 182000 Units.
    At these space coordinates now float 0 Metal and 0 Crystal.
    6 Missile Launcher, 9 Small Laser, 2 Heavy Laser, 8 Ion Cannon, 1 Small Shield Dome could be repaired.


    As a bit of a 'what if' I used Speed sim to work out the likely outcome of the same fleet did attack my main planet. Here's what I got. Without my fleet there.
    Defender wins (3%) || Draw (97%) | after ~ 6 rounds
    600.000 Metal (30%), 300.000 Crystal (30%) max. 50 Recycler
    Chance that a moon arises is 9%

    And with my main fleet there:
    Defender wins (100%) | after ~ 5 rounds
    694.500 Metal (32%), 347.100 Crystal (32%) max. 57 Recycler
    Chance that a moon arises is 10%

    If he attacked my main planet with the same fleet I'd actually do pretty well from it. A debre field more than double what I'd lose and 10% chance for a moon. I assume he's probably got a much bigger fleet than what he sent though and he'd probably be bright enough to work out the odds for himself./>

    hm 55 battleships, that wouldnt have been worth the cost in fuel getting the ships there

    Now I've got a decent fleet I think it's time to move on from just attacking undefended planets. I just sent out 2 large fleets to simultaneously attack 2 planets that are owned by some guy ranked lower than me and not part of any alliance. Both planets have mines as high as level 20 so I don't even think I'll have room to carry all the res he's got. They've both got well over 100k metal and over 50k crystal. I just hope he doesn't log on and quickly try to spend it all before I get there.

    Trade anyone? I built up my crystal mines heaps while I was researching technology for battleships. Now I'm getting a lot more crystal than other res. I'm willing to trade a fair chunk of crystal. Preferably for deut since I need that most but I'll trade for metal as well. PM me in game if anyone's interested.
