Debris harvest mission etiquette
« on: June 04, 2010, 09:30:41 AM »
Is there any etiquitte in regards to a debris harvest mission?

I check the Galaxy page and find a planet with a debris field.

Can I just go and send my Dionysus Class Recycler?

Any tips would be appreciated.

No one received any message when a DF is harvested other than the person that harvests it. Hope that helps you decide :P

If you can get there first it is yours.

Bottom line with debris fields.

Just out of curiosity what size of debris fields are you going for, and how long?  They are probably not as profitable as you might think.

The were small fields but I wanted to use them as an opportunity to try a harvest mission and use the Galaxy page to have a look around.

Learning by doing.

Thanks to all who have replied.

Go ahead and harvest them if they are large enough and you have the time.  Many experienced players will leave the debris because they can get a larger haul in a shorter amount of time by attacking an inactive planet. If it is less than the amount you can get through the mission then it's definitely not worth the time. Bottom line, recyclers are necessary, but extremely slow.  If you are taking part in an attack and you know there will be debris, send them ahead (but not too far ahead, you don't want them to get there before there's any debris to pick up).

The only time I worry about a debris field is if it was created by someone else in my alliance (and I know about it, like from chat).  Then I will leave it alone, although sometimes they will invite others to help them harvest a large field to be sure someone in the alliance gets it.  Other than this, if I see one and it is worth it, I will send to it.  Do check the planet from time to time so you can recall if the debris disappears and not continue to waste a fleet slot.
