Rankings
« on: February 08, 2010, 01:31:51 AM »
You know what.  Since coming outta Dip over the Holidays, which doesn't incure an automatic penalty (yeah, right), I've lost 500 ranking points.,  Since then, I've

Aggressively farmed to the tune of 3M in resources,
Researched my final tech (ArcNet) none left to research at this time,
Used the 3M to build 1/3 more Hades, 1/3 more Athenas and 2/3 more support ships (fighters, cargo, etc.),
Built up 50% more defences including more silo capacity, ABMs and Plasma Cannons.

Short of taking down Empire single-handedly, I don't know what else I can do.

Staying at the below 500 level would have been expected given the competitive nature of the game.  Being over 1000 after all that?

Seriously.

Which holiday?

It's all about resource generation and spending.  I've spent about 15M resources in the last week and I moved from high 400s to high 300s.  At 10M a week I was holding steady in the high 400s, and it looks like I'll hold steady in the high 300s with 13M a week.

These days you have to be sprinting just to stay in position.

Just keep in mind that even being ranked 1k is an accomplishment. There are over 200k users ;)

You didn't list destroying ships, I often gain more pts in 1 battle every day than everything else I do combined.

You farmed 3 mil since the holidays? I farmed 4 mil today. And yesterday. And the day before..

The top accounts produce and raid alot. It can be hard to keep up.

Gowron: Your shields are down, your station boarded, and more Klingon ships are on their way! Surrender while you can!
Sisko: I don\'t think so. My shields are holding, your boarding parties are contained, and my reinforcements are closer than yours.

I managed to hit a guy for ~8 million OCH a couple days ago with only 1st waves. The guy had 900k/900k/700k at least on all of his planets, and 2 that were 1,600k/700k/1,600k. Too bad all his mines were powered with sats and I destroyed them all. He's a terrible farm now....


I used that diplo noob's OCH to build a Zeus. It's funny, he's really close to me and I didn't recognize him when I first saw him because he's always been greyed out from being in diplo. It managed to kick me up from the 180's into the 160's at least, but I play casual now and am already starting to lose some of that rank.
