Solo Top 01 - [TOT: 529.912.842.000] AGoodSydney vs. Samurai Spirit (A: 69.196.349.000, D: 460.716.493.000)

  • Hello fellow Thuban-ites,

    To provide some backstory, from merging in on Monday morning to yesterday, despite the plethora of targets in the universe and a few billion deuterium spent launching, I was only able to make a few smaller hits, the most profitable of which was a bit under 40B profit:

    As a result, I've been quiet on boards, since I was hoping to at least make a Top 10 to serve as an introductory hit.

    Fortune smiled on me yesterday and I saw Samurai Spirit sitting with 240B res and 460B fleet only 7 systems away from me. As he was very active, I spent a good while watching him like a hawk, trying to figure out a window to strike. A few hours in, I noticed that he had become significantly less active, gaining a new activity pip every few minutes instead of having activity everywhere all the time. I decided to take a risk and go in system to hit between his refreshes.

    A few minutes after the launch, all 45 million Cruisers were returning, with no CR generated. I waited 5 seconds, refreshed, still no CR. 10 seconds, same thing. After what seemed to be an eternity (but was actually about 20 seconds), 2.4M Cruisers were deleted from my returning fleet, the CR finally appeared, and I breathed a sigh of relief. 😮‍💨

    I was very fortunate to make the hit -- he came on soon after the CR appeared, and manage to move around 12b deut and 9b crystal before I could hit with my follow ups (which were only about 2 minutes behind). But I managed to secure the majority of the resources on his moon, as well as the entirety of the debris field, so I can't complain. 😊

    I haven't heard from defender since the hit, but they've since reclaimed the wreckfield and have remained active, so I imagine they are sticking around. I wish them a fast rebuild.

    Without further ado, I present the new number 1 solo for

  • A hit after my own heart!

    Congrats on the careful watching and use of cruisers.

    Congrats on the mega profit! Enjoy spending

    9/10 would give 10/10 but missing a picture 😂

    def GLOTR

  • Now this is a niiice hit, and a niiice introduction to Thuban :D

    Enjoy the spoils alongside the other profitable non-posted hits!

    FR defender! Man the 5x is killer.

  • This hit is the exact reason I chose Vega. I knew I could have fun in Thuban, but everyone slips up once in a while and 4 minute flight is ... almost impossible to defend against.

    but with that being said - this is a hit after my heart. Ive done my fair share of this exact type of hits. Spot the fleet, or get someone to spot it for you. Watch it closely for a day or even two. Sneak in nearby (in system ideally) and strike with a very fast fleet. Its not guaranteed hits but you definitely have a higher successrate than just spy and fly.

    Hope to see more from Thuban! but Im glad Im just watching and not in the middle of it all

  • All the 'precisely why I didn't go to Thuban' comments are laughable. These hits can happen in any universe.

    Congrats on the NN1.

    FR defender or GLiRL

    Don't let the game play you, instead of that Vmode fleetsave and play the game whenever you want.

    FR defender or GLiRL

    Speaking of laughable. If you compare a 3½-4minute flight time to a 10 minute flight time, then you are not playing the same game as the rest of us.

  • Grats, inactive system skip and X5 hostile combined with 10x Eco will lead to even bigger hits in the future. will be the bloodiest universe ever seen.
