PostSubject: how to gain resources fast   Sat Jun 12, 2010 1:25 pm

Right now im trying to build up a fleet so that i can begin raiding players for res. All i can build is LF's , small cargo and espionage probes with the tech i have. my mines are lvl 10 metal, 9 crystal and 6 deut. Is there some secret to getting resources fast to expand or do i just have to wait for the resources to be mined?

find inactive players with no fleet and defences and raid them with cargo ship only constantly. Look up player type "raider" from the player types forum Wink

wait.... cargo ships can do raiding? Now that I know this...


Also, follow the tutorial, it puts in you a good "how-to" and builds you up at a decent pace. I'm almost ready to build my first Colony Ship and then gonna jump right into my first Recycler. I'm sure both of these steps will help me with res tremendously.

recyclers are the most important ship (IMO) later in the game because that's how you harvest huge debris fields from crashing fleets.

is there a reason why my ships get destroyed even though I probe and see no defense or fleet?

They likely have a higher espionage level than you, the more levels they have over you, the less information you can gather.

yeah unless you actually see a bar that says fleet and defense with no units underneath it than they may still have defenses or a fleet on the planet

My rule of thumb earlier on was to leave the inactive players above rank 1000, or people that had crystal debris outside their planet (people have probed them and been destroyed). Also if they have a chance of counter espionage on your esp report, leave them as well, cause that means they have some kind of fleet.

Anyone else is fine. You may occasionally lose some ships but your profit will be high. You could try increasing your espionage tech slowly as well and that will lower the risk.
