Question about Group Attacks and TIming
« on: March 17, 2010, 12:12:24 AM »
Just a question...

If I send a group attack, in which one fleet is sent earlier and at partial speed and then the other fleets are sent later at full speed... do they return all at the same time, or at their own travel speeds back from the target?

I wanna say they come back at whatever speed you set them to, unless you're timing the launches to return about the same time.

Say I have an atlas going from planet 11 to planet 15.  At 100% speed (for me) it will take 36 minutes one way, 10% 6 hours.  So round trip time at 100% is 1:12 and at 10% is 12:00.  If you launch the second fleet at full speed at exactly (100% speed) - (10% speed), then they'll both return at/about same time.

I think.
