X2 NPC SUGGESTION
« on: November 02, 2013, 07:56:00 AM »
So since the npcs have been so shitty lately profit wise, and so much defense. Why not make the defense give off debris like it does in conquest?

I need res to play catch up, i dont need npcs that cannot be touched for a profit without losing like my whole fleet.

Remember that anything that helps you catch up, helps people who are ahead of you get farther ahead.  Other than, you know, actually attacking those players.

I agree the npc's have been shitty lately. The defense is soo high and the dsp is not worth touching. Why hit an npc for 3M dsp when it has 400M defense on it... makes no sense. We still hunt players.. well in my alliance anyway but they are few and far between so when you log in for the day it would be nice to actually find SOMETHING to do instead of sitting there staring at an empty fleet screen!!!

That would be nice Whit but BFG won't be able to make any money by adding that. They only add things that will make us buy credits

Actually I think the experience of Conquest shows that the more debris is available the more important the trade merchant becomes.

i beg to differ..they have been really good..u must search around and be willing to do battle..

I think they can vary day by day and between RSP ranges.

agreed, but i will state that it is more of a neccisity in conquest (4 billion dioys cost a lot to move even in system)...but yep, more debris more likely trade merchant will increase

I think they can vary day by day and between RSP ranges.

true in some unis yes, but (as you referred to) in conquest this is broken....many npcs do not get touched as they have upwards of 5+ billion defences showing as bright green to players with 7 billion RSP.  7 billion RSP in conquest is actually low.

However, BFG have stated that npcs spawn ship/defence heavy dependant on what the players are building.  As for RSP, NPCs are supposed to spawn at every RSP rank (including the rank 1) but will never surpass (in other words capped) at the RSP of the #1 player.


curious when that second issue will be finally be fixed in conquest....i am tired of bringing this problem up and being ignored by BFG

New starr I agree you need to look around but a few of those NPC's although profitable .. i wouldnt hit. Yes dsp is dsp but if it is 1 to 3M dsp... no thank you just a waste of my time. Zeus attacks are great... too bad they take forever to hit and return and most times they are gone before you arrive. I dont do alot of zeus attack I do proms and bombers and for 1-3M dsp not worth my time.. hydro to launch or merch to switch over anything... just sayin'

all the NPC issue boils down to is the fact that BFG has become more of a "we could not care less what you want" company.  "  "just buy more credits and we might think about doing something but probably not so just shut up already and pay us"

you guys are cring about sending zues out for 1 to 3 million in DSP but i do that all the time .
it all adds up and with zues there is little hydro use and no losses that is a win ,win for me.

do you not get out from behind your computer to do things in the world around you?
why the hell would you spend all day infront of the computer at this ame anyway

Yes it is still profit but there was a reason why you were ranked 200 BEFORE you took over that top 10 account... lol keep hitting your 3m dsp and see what happens
