FACEPALM, well there is your problem, why the heck are you building lvl 10 robotics, lvl 10 shipyard, and JG4? I play a x7 uni btw. Cost to build a moon is a pittance in a x7 uni. This is a war game, maybe if you don't like the attacking part, you can switch to RPG or something similar.
@letssled - Maybe you forgot or didn't notice, but I said that it was the cost of FULLY upgrading the moon, not merely simple upgrading. The cost might be a pittance for you, but I prefer to not think so loftily. Even in x7, resource conservation is important. And if you can shell out enough to make a moon every other day, be my guest, but I can't afford moons on such a regular basis.
Building level 10 Robotics is for building the Jump Gate, to reduce the time needed between cool-downs. Shipyard 10 is so that defence can be built to avoid cheap MDs as currently happens. Everyone has a different play-style and unlike you, I like to keep my moons in one-piece by having enough terrain development.
I don't need to switch to an RPG, you need to wake up. I can and have played OGame pretty fine in the past, back from Electra days. You might have been playing for longer, but I'm definitely not a noob to be saying all this. Back then, instant-building and THIS level of DM abuse didn't exist. Back then, people did MD, but not as much as they do now ever since the game's been reduced to less than 200-500 active players per server, so please.....
Hey, I know letssled attacks you a lot with his rips.......and I want to crash those rips a lot!
