Title: RSP Gap
Post by: Zov on October 09, 2010, 11:40:27 PM
Was looking at the RSP leaderboard and noticed that there is a huge gap between rank 10 and rank 11. Why do you think this is so? Would getting lucky with field counts on first colonizations be enough? Could the top 10 be pushers? Or what are they doing differently to create such a pronounced difference?

Solar sats can make a huge difference. Also geo and human workers make a pretty big difference. Some people go for fleets right away and stop building their mines as fast so they fall behind in RSP.

I have 2 human workers and no geo and not much time to look for inactives so I am not at the very top but I ave stayed true to my plan to build mines and only mines for a while so I have stayed in the top ten.

Do you build defenses to protect your sats and high production while FRS'd?

Zov, fear works wonders in keeping people away from overnight defenses.

you dont get high ranking by sitting around doing nothing

but is it worth the risk attacking someone thats high ranking?
would your attack land or would it get ninjaed and owned? :P

For high ranked players sure, but for low ranked players its tougher. Its part of the reason there is a huge gap, there is fear which keeps those players safe, so they build less defense and save res which makes them res.

This is true.  Especially when you add the sats late game when nobody even probes you any more  :lol:
