    I'll admit I've not fully read through everything you've posted, though I commend the efforts you've gone through to find these results :thumbsup:

    Interestingly... just through playing and simming lots of different scenarios/fleets I myself landed on the following ratios:

    • 30 LF
    • 10 CR
    • 6 BC
    • 3 Destoryers


    I think the reason for my higher CR ratio is to be able to more easily take out fodder (LF) but also to smash through a heap of RL/LL. And I find BC to be pretty cost effective and powerful even when flying solo.

    The reason for the Destroyers is to be able to more easily counter BC & RIPs.


    Interesting to see how your proposed ratio isn't hugely different from what I work with 👍

    Is there any chance Xuange could be included in the 2024 merge?

    I don't think there will be any change concerning Xuange

    If I'm informed of an exodus/target change I'll make a new post.

    Thanks for the response Neotinea. Is there a way that it can be requested/suggested to GF? I can't imagine there is much spend on DM happening in Xuange but if there was a merge it would probably prompt more players to make purchases which is of course good for GF too.

    It seems that Xuange has not been included in this years merge plan! I think I speak for most of the active players (which there are very few) in Xuange when I say that a merger is much needed even if the uni is less than 6months old!


    When you compare the number of active players between Vela (the newest Exodus uni to be included) and Xuange they aren't massively different:

    Vela

    • 'Active' - 224
    • Inactive - 787
    • V-mode - 76

    Xuange

    • 'Active' - 340
    • Inactive - 1144
    • V-mode - 77


    Stats from MMORGP.

    EDIT - those number are also inflated/outdated as in Xuagne that are only 925 accounts in total 😂



    Also it would seem that Thuban is quiet a close match in terms of server settings which is available as a target uni if people want to keep playing with similar specs!

    Is there any chance Xuange could be included in the 2024 merge?


    @Neotinea

    Last one today... I think!

    Just a little one but nice profit, spy and fly. There was some activity so I guess expos returning or something.

    Anyway FR Spacewalk.

    Not too much of a story to go with this one... Saw Racoonx's fleet yesterday, and as Sheppy was about figured we might as well pop some moons to see what we could see... Unfortunately this wasn't all of his fleet but it was most of it. We lost some RIPs in taking out 4 of his 5 G5 moons so profit here isn't a true reflection but still approx 2bil profit :thumbsup:


    Giving those dessie a runout 👌

    As it's so quiet...


    I'd watched Captain for a few weeks but he kept v-moding every time I was planning to launch! Tried my luck yesterday and just launched blind on some timers but he was there and moved everything.

    He seemed to go off a little earlier than usual last night so I launched RIPs to pop the moon knowing that is was likely a dirty FS... and luckily it popped first try with no losses 👌

    Straight forward enough from there... Fleet was attacking an inactive and I got it on the way back. There was also some other fleet which I caught for about 200mil profit too!


    Hope you stick around Captain, if you do FR.

    Nice little profit for a Saturday morning 👌


    The story goes like this... Despite Infrared having moons he appeared not to use them, he does however know how to FS (deploy/recalls). I tried to catch him on the deploy leg but he recalled, I got some nice fighting talk in return :thumbsup:

    I tried to time it back but had the timings off.

    The morning after... he decided to raid a couple of my planets :tongue3: fair play!

    Anyway, I kept an eye on him and this morning saw that he launched an attack, figured I'd get him on the return but he recalled early so I had to rush to get fleet out... and well the rest is below.

    I think the defender got about 30mil of the DF, the rest is mine.


    Infrared FR, I hope you use the info I gave you in-game and start using those moons 👍


    Dedi to my buddies who were with me in SRB... and the start of new beginnings :wink3:

    So I've had this happen a few times now but I believe I've pinpointed the issue...

    If you add something to your build queue (building, research, it doesn't seem to matter) and at the time of adding that item to the queue you don't currently have enough resources to build it, when the current build completes you will get 'Insufficient Resources' message (even if there are enough resources available at that time). Which I believe to be incorrect behaviour. Can anyone confirm?

    I don't usually post my hits but as my biggest in this uni so far... and the fact it's quiet in here... figured I'd post!

    Saw activity on ganja's moon spied and sent without waiting for timers. Thought he might be online towards the end of the attack but guess someone else was looking 👀
