p ban for war duration...
a war wouldnt be long as some will screw up quick enough...
split your fleet to FRS ...or load all on hepha.
stop crying about hydro cost....

or like i mentioned it b4 dont build too many ships... :(
My enemy’s enemy is a problem for later: In the meantime, they might be useful.

Hi, von,

For the people who would need to spend billions in hydro to FRS, the cost of the p-marker most likely outweighs the pro-rated merchanting cost of the hydro needed to FRS.  So, it actually is less costly for people to FRS than it is for them to go "p".  I suspect that the same holds true for smaller players, as well.

I agree. p modes give a lot of benefits over frsing, but cost effective frsing isn't one of them. It's the ability to effectively instantly recall a frs at any given moment and be invulnerable that makes them so desirable. Unless you have to merchant more than once a day on average (6 times in 5 days to be specific), frsing is cheaper. And if you do have to merchant that often, it's probably well past time you upgraded your hydro storage level.

Everything he said.
About the incredible and broken advantage of being able to toggle out of P mode for one.
And an 8 hour P mode is 6k credits. if you ONLY use P mode to FRS like that (likely you use more), that's 180k credits to P mode FRS per month. About 20$ per month and 240$ yearly for a free game.
If you use 180k credits worth of TMs for FRSing purposes EXCLUSIVELY then you're an incredibly inefficient player.

I thought p markers were for emergencies (like inability to RS or to protect overnight builds on occasion)...  ??? Or when you wake up to frs and then wake up again to realize you still hadn't frs'd...  :-\

They probably wouldn't be quite as profitable for BFG if they were only used in emergencies.

Evening All -

I want to congratulate all of the remaining alliances that have advanced to Round 2. Round 2 will officially begin at 0001 hrs on 5/6. War points should be set for 100m and d-rate remains at 75%. The lower seeds should send out the war request (i.e. B.A.D. sends to HOD, etc.)

Remember those that remain are 1 victory for battling for the championship. Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing these next 2 contest play out.

Thanks,
Rayman

Phoenix Risen has triumphed over Bat'leth Andorian Devils. The war is over. Normal peace-time rules of conduct have been re-instated.
Proud leader of the best alliance in the game!
