Still not right...
« on: June 08, 2013, 05:13:58 PM »
X2 is still not profitable.
Been playing this version from day one.
Never wanted to go on v mode (first time ever), but did yesterday.
Will return when it becomes profitable again.

Without you sharing the battle reports of what you consider unprofitable I can't really comment on the situation further.

Sorry, I was not aware I must provide battle reports I have not launched on.  Every large battle I have calced out is unprofitable for me.  I will not attack something just to provide a battle report of me losing my fleet.

I am sorry Matt.  Not trying to be a rude.  Just wishing I could find large profitable NPC's to attack.  I have been playing since the beginning and have attacked plenty to know what is profitable or not.  I have not found many (as before) that give me a profit.

I would sure like to see a couple profitable "large" NPC attacks (over 30B resources harvested) posted here so I could decide to return or not.

What is 'profitable' to you? lord richhawk posted a number of battle reports in another thread that were 'unprofitable' to him, despite making a 22B converted resource profit.

when I come out of V mode I will post them or send them to you. 
Thank you Matt for listening to me.
I appreciate it

Would still like to see anyone making profit on the big ones.  Don't have to post screen shots or anything.  Just say you are finding some would work for me.

Matt will class all hits as profitable if you get more res than you lost - because you lose out big style on hydro you are still up on ore and crystal, bfg profit because you HAVE TO PAY to merc it back to the lost hydro... Thats why I quit

Just be happy with your rank instead of catching boris, remember the rank boris had was bought and you played from day one, your accomplishments are your own.

Sorry Matt, I didn't realise giving it away was against the forum rules - I had no intention of selling or trading.

I can however share with you what I consider a profitable NPC from a post I made a long time ago.
http://forum.playstarfleet.com/index.php?topic=18167.45

Below is an example of the most profitable NPC out there (in my opinion) and still is out there.
There is only one of these out there daily.  If there were a lot more of these the game would probably be more enjoyable for all.

The ZERO techs are the key to profitability.


Encounter Large Floating Colony... has:
RESOURCES:
* ore: 52,141,317
* crystal: 64,534,134
* hydrogen: 53,089,770
================================
Total plunder: 84,882,610 (680 carm / 3396 herc / 16977 atlas)
DSP: 31,244,534 (442935 Dios / 1771737 Zags)

URCATH'S SHIPS:
* Artemis Class Fighter: 655,481
* Atlas Class Cargo: 619,313
* Apollo Class Fighter: 341,702
* Zagreus Class Recycler: 253,879
* Hercules Class Cargo: 223,073
* Dionysus Class Recycler: 134,104
* Poseidon Class Cruiser: 92,725
* Carmanor Class Cargo: 60,833
* Athena Class Battleship: 56,569
* Ares Class Bomber: 30,816
* Hades Class Battleship: 24,569
* Prometheus Class Destroyer: 23,209

DEFENSES:
* Missile Battery: 1,606,461
* Laser Cannon: 1,460,909
* Pulse Cannon: 340,980
* Particle Cannon: 287,420
* Gauss Cannon: 60,015
* Plasma Cannon: 9,176
* Decoy: 1
* Large Decoy: 1

TECHS:
* Armor Tech: 0
* Weapons Tech: 0
* Shield Tech: 0

The chance of your probes being intercepted is 0%
