    Was this the blind lanx, recalled deployment?

    yes?? I don’t understand the question.


    Edit: nevermind, Ulyanov filled me in on the comment history. Haha, I like putting the recalled deployment in there when it's true because it's a more technical type of blind lanx than, say, a DF lanx. Gotta take credit! :P :P

    COA has watched CROat0an very carefully for some time now. Because, well....he builds us stuff. Recently his building of stuff hit a level we could ignore no longer. He was becoming threatening to fleets throughout the universe! So for the good of our fellow Yildun members we decided to selflessly take action! You're welcome everyone! We are happy to help you always!

    CROat0an often has fleet sitting for almost too long. We have hit him before, but usually he comes online before we get there on spy-and-flys. He does usually use his moons though. Inexplicably, Ulyanov found his fleet on deployment from a planet to another planet. We assume this was a late-night fleetsaving mistake. But it was a bad one. Ulyanov attacked the deployment. Predictably, the defender came online.

    But then he made the worst mistake of all. He saw the attack coming, panicked, and recalled right away. Ulyanov saw it and took down the needed information. The return time was calculated and alliance-checked. We got him within a 4 second possible return window. We selected the last possible return time and launched, which turned out to be 2 seconds behind the fleet.

    On Discord we rallied the necessary troops, with Midnight feeding us the info we needed for ACS. It takes a long time. He does it like this:

    08:00:00 - Hi guys! It's me!
    08:05:30 - ...Midnight!
    08:05:30 - Can you guys ACS today? It's at 12pm server time! Hold on....I gotta stir my spaghetti.
    08:15:24 - Hi guys, yeah it's me midnight again. It's at 12:24 server time. Oh crap, my dog is throwing up. Be right back.
    08:29:02 - Hi guys. Midnight here. Yeah the hit should land at 12:24:39. You guys free? We're attacking C.....I gotta go to the bathroom.
    09:55:35 - That was bad. OK, we're attacking CROat0an.

    But we got through Midnight's info-adventures like champions and the rest is history! We actually simmed that we needed far less fleet and, in fact, would have had a lot more profit if we only sent heavy ships. But we decided to send fodder anyway because:

    1) we thought it would be funny to swarm him like bees. Bzzzz!
    2) in case he was thinking about ACS defense support. Which he was. Obviously we could have seen that coming but in order to prevent a possible forced recall we decided to throw in the bees.

    Finally, Yildun should know that CROat0an reached out to us quickly after the hit and had great sportsmanship. We always like to see that. It's a game and rage is for noobs. GG CROat0an.

    Ulyanov would like to dedicate his portion of the hit to Revo. I think because of the irony that Ulyanov game-hates Revo. So.....this one is for you, Revo, and shine on, you crazy diamond! Bzzz!

    Well, I also am not trying to druge up 1 of 5000 conversations on whether Gameforge or its COMA's give a crap about players or not. Let's assume they do and Prongs is, in fact, the best COMA to ever pull on boxer shorts.


    It doesn't change the fact this is a stupid policy Queen Leo. As I said, if 80% of people vote for something it never should have been that way in the first place.


    Let's look at the logic of this:


    GF: Must have 80% vote because we are not willing to piss off more than 20% of our players.

    Uni1: 70% vote to change

    GF: OK, no deal. We don't want to piss off 30% of players.

    Uni1: Uhhh....ok....now 70% of us are pissed off.


    Makes perfect sense. I don't know why I bother sometimes...

    Queen Leo if the 70% vs. 80% vote isn't up for discussion it really doesn't matter. But not accepting a 70% vote in a dead universe is asinine. In pretty much anything else 70% is a super-majority. And as I said, all this says to us is Gameforge is willing to give the middle finger to 70% of it's players in a dead universe.


    Uni 1 sucks now. It has for a long time. This vote was a small way to breath some type of excitement into this old stomping ground. It's a shame that the COMA Prongs is not willing to take a look at the specific circumstances and instead is taking the lazy way out by falling back on policy that requires a higher vote percentage than is required to impeach the President of the United States (requires 2/3 vote to convict, which has never once happened). I don't care what their policy is "across all of gameforge." The fact I just mentioned shows it's dumb. If you EVER get 80%, all that means is no one liked the settings to begin with.

    Trust me. This guy is a NOOB!

    Not a new idea....but not a bad one, haha. If you search the archives on this server or on others they've been talking about this concept since the invention of jump gates. ;)


    I think the biggest thing that has changed since the last time I read this idea is probe storage. Now, I'm not sure it's really necessary. You can move resources very, very quickly. IF you decide to invest in probes in a uni in which probe storage is turned on. I think they are for most unis here on .us. True, not everyone builds those kinds of numbers in probes. I don't. But then I guess you just have to weigh that against how badly you want to be able to move resources around very fast. But the "cost" of moving res this way helps the balance concern that other posters have mentioned.
