Lol after reading this thread I think I will definitely start sending ships on expeditions. I'm willing to take the risk now haha.

Encounter with Pirates again....

"Some really desperate space pirates tried to capture our expedition fleet."

Combat results:

"Combat Report

Combat at deep space [4:420:16] (08.07.2010 05:57:05)

kamoosekazi from Persei VIII Moosi 7 [2:372:12]
vs

Pirates from deep space [4:420:16]

Ships/Defence: 13 Ships/Defence: 7
Lost units: 0 Lost units: 28.000
Weapons: 50% Weapons: 20%
Shields: 50% Shields: 20%
Armour: 70% Armour: 40%
Winner: kamoosekazi
The attacker has won the battle!

Loot : 0 Metal, 0 Crystal and 0 Deuterium.
debris field : 0 metal and 0 crystal.

The trick is to have a strong lead like a cruiser and some small/heavy fighters as fodder. Pirates will never win.... Aliens on the other hand...

I send LF, HF and LC... It can get cruisers... When I tech to dest, I'm gonna send one or two of those along... Right now, it is dangerous sending cruisers along, cause if you meet them against pirates or aliens because they will RIP through your LFs:)

I'm just too paranoid to send my whole fleet. Knowing my luck they'd get attacked by aliens one minute into the expedition (made even more unlucky by the fact that can't happen) Laughing
I haven't got anything big back from expeditions as of yet.

Here is a tool that can tell you what ships can be found based on what you sent. Another thing I found while looking around was that aliens have (your combat tech +3) and pirates have (your combat tech - 3). I'm not certain what the small, medium, and large buttons are for though scratch .

Even IF I meet pirates, which happens once in 30 trips or so, I don't lose every single ship... Far from... And so far I have made about 500+ DM, 800kmetal, 700k crystal, 90k deut and about 400 ships ranging from probes to cruiser with a total cost of more than 1.5 mill ress... I'd say, even if I did lose all those ships I send, by now they have more than payed for themselves:) I'm gonna up it to 60 LF 80 HF 60 SC and 2 dessies once I can:)
