Now that I know how probing works, it would seem that my random probing of near level players has peaked the interest of ABE Word [1:363:12]. Assuming he couldn't see my defenses and lasers, a following message showed me that he attacked me a few hours ago with 1 ship....

I have a question, is it common for some players to through a light fighter or some other lesser ship into a planet just to see their defenses in a combat report?

No that is not a common way to find def's (to my knowledge anyway ) im guessing he a new player and he is probably just trying to figure things out. If he persists though im sure we can do somthing about it Laughing He may have thought you attacked him and is just returning the favor lol

He will not get to see your defenses unless his ship survives the first round of combat... So if it didn't do that, all he knows is that his ship got wasted... And no, it is by no means a normal strategy, but rather him not knowing what he's doing...

the most common way to get more information about another players planet is to increase the number of probes. You would still receive the espionage report even if the opposition obliterates your probes. You can think of it as payment to find out the guys details down to his research with slight chance of survival. I personally lvl my esp tech to 12 slowly till I get to 40k points or so in every account and I never need to send more than 3 probes to a guy around my stage.

I have mine set to send 3 at a time as well and I usually only upgrade it when I cant get decent reports from people around my rank.

You might be able to talk to him , give him some pointers and maybe even recruit him you never know Wink

Not sure if I have the brains for it lol. Never really used photo shop or anything before. Took me a couple days to figure out how to do the one I have. 14 layers is alot, but it looks damn good Smile I might have to mess around with it some more lol
