Attacking
« on: January 22, 2010, 07:09:14 PM »
Word to the wise, unless you're attacking someone in your own system then for most players it's not yet worth launching attacks. I did, won yet I've slid down the rankings. During the round trip time I would have earned more points running missions and spending the filthy lucra then.

As we all get bigger fleets this won't be the case but at the moment it is for majority,

This doesn't bother me because I wanted to attack but I just thought I'd put it out there.

It is only profitable to attack right now if the person you are attacking is holding over 30,000 resources or so at the moment, and is only an hour away, at least for me. This depends on your individual situation of course, but the universe is just too young still. Missions are almost always more profitable. No one has enough resources to make it worthwhile, and without recyclers, you can't take home their fleet either. Give it a few more days guys. Right now, attacking is just about showing off more than advancing.

That's 100 build points, not points overall.

If I can score more than 4k crystal alone on a raid in 2 hours.  Its paid off more than running missions.  And there's alot of people with 8k crystal lying around with little to no defense guarding it, and that's just crystal, if I get ore/hydro its icing on the cake.

Yep!

"The attacking side acquired 7,800 ore, 6,715 crystal, and 635 hydrogen.
There now float 600 ore and 600 crystal around this planet. "

Was worth the one hour one way trip!
