i am aware of that this topic has recently been discussed many times but as a recent cameback veteran player I wanted to ask and share some ideas about it.
I had a break from this for 3 years. At that time all my planets were at slot 15. To achieve it, I had colonized planets firstly on slot 13, tried to get 200+ fields, builded terraformer there and reached 250+ fields and then relocated to 15. At the end of the that I had 13 planets on slot 15. However with a new update, I see that slot 8 provides 35% metal bonus. Currently my 7 planets are on slot 8 and 6 are on slot 15.
1) Can I, one day, relocate my planets from 8 to 15? Because it was restricted before and it was only possible between 13-14-15 slots.
2) It seems like slot 15 is totally useless now. Metal daily package gives you more resources (even in fair trade ratio) and costs three times cheaper than deuterium resource package. So my question is why deuterium resource package costs three times more? Because you are already producing it much less. Currently I get 290 million metal for 60 dark matter but 85 million deuterium for 180 dark matter. What is the point of using deuterium package?
3) It seems like my invest has been powercreeped by Gameforge. I have spent many DMs to get these slot 15 planets but at the current situation it is just a fantasy to colonize on slot 15 and nothing else. Why do they do that?
4) What is your final advise? Slot 8 or slot 15?
