General Starfleet Discussion / Ship Synergist question
« on: October 07, 2017, 11:37:32 AM »

Will the use of a Ship Synergistic only reduce ship build times for new build or will it also reduce times for ships in my queue that are waiting to build?

+1 Grace. Tourney's were the best.  Well.  The first six months of SFCo were THE best.    But the tourneys were better than uni 1, 2,3 extreme a, b,c hired, nova, etc etc etc etc

Another agreement on ship speed.   It is fast enough to do things, but not unreasonable (last tourney an in-system hit took less time than the system was doing screen refresh!  You'd get hit even if you were actively there and playing! Unfair!!!!)

The difference between SFCo and here in terms of quickly building large fleets? 

1.  Ability to buy completions.  A couple of bucks to save 2 days build time for a foundry is well worth it.  (Whether it should be allowed is another story...).  Build up those foundries and voila!   Lots of ships.  If you have RES...
2.  RES:  Abundant!   In SFCo it took days... maybe weeks to store up enough res to do something interesting.  Last night I got all the res I needed to build an F4 just by running the posi missions at AI 13 for 1.5 hrs at 10mins each.

Between buying completions (and tokens) and the over plentiful missions I am surprised there aren't MORWE huge fleets already!

+1 that newbie is based on "Building" not overall.   That's when I passed out of newbie.  So has everyone in my alliance.   BUILDING at 1000 is the dividing line.   Not overall.   And there is no "total" category, Matt.

Starting on a weekend would be much more fair, too.   Getting a running start is critical in these tourneys.   If you start on a weekend those who work for a living would not be at a disadvantage.

I loved the speed - but the fact that it doesn't show up until it is too late is completely bogus!   Being alerted to an attack if you are sitting there online is a reasonable expectation.   (If you are away from keyboard, tough sheets.)  That needs to be fixed.  But keep the speed the same.

Tournament Universe / Tourney Performance

Anyone else noticing a distinct slowness this tourney of the servers?  Like lots of lag time and I get the white screen much more frequently than previous tournies...

Moon, yes.  Gates, yes.  Oracles No.

In a one month tourney it takes too long to build a heph (unless you are a number 1-5 players).  Even without that, I prefer gates over a heph most of the time.

I wouldn't exactly say BrianC was/is polite or not paranoid, either :)  He was/is very good.   If you were on his good side he was a good partner.

It would be great if they started a tourney on the weekend.    Tourneys are so fast paced and dependent on a good running start that us working folk are at an immediate disadvantage.   I'll bet more people would at least start to play a tourney and then maybe get hooked if they had a full weekend to prime the fleeting pumps!

BTW, BFG, working folk are probably more likely to spend $$$ as well ... so you are discouraging the folks with the cash!

How about we just do a tourney old style. No NPCs to farm, no moons or oracles, no territories, just a good old hunters uni with reasonable flight times (so you can go to the bathroom) but fast build times.

That would be perfect!

Embarrassing for my old xXx friends.

Winnie was never a factor as far as I was concerned in any Tourney...

its about the same as t-2

Really?  I'm pretty sure I remember it starting with about 2200-2500 in the first few weeks.   T1 started with about 4500 if I am recalling correctly.
