Now now...no need to be throwing out cheating insults on this thread. Attacker was predictable and according to PMs suffering from no electricity and using his phone to play. Cutecat's 6th sense detected a difference in his play and he decided we should fly. We have wasted 100s of millions of fuel trying things that didn't work.....this time it did.
As for the rip bashing the top 5-10 players do? If you miners don't build tasty fleets for us to chase, we are going to just bash your planets so we can grow. It's the natural order of things. The investment cost for the rips and computer tech are already paid, so whatever yields the most profit is gonna get smacked that night with them. Stop trying to make us feel bad about it, just makes us annoyed.
