    I get the general feeling here is no changes so I will not place any poll in this server for the moment.

    I get the general feeling forums is close to dead, so setting up poll options could still be viable. No changes is always an option. But at least X2 eco and X4 research looks super justified at this stage.


    And we will remain unique, the slowest uni still.


    Yes, let's have a poll ingame, and see what comes out. x2 eco and x4 research speed.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but research speed can be the multiple of economy speed minus the case where eco speed is x1.


    If I understood correctly, research speed can only be a multiple of economy speed and multiple of 2. For example in 1x eco speed it could be 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x and so on. I could be wrong. But so far I haven't seen a 3x research speed, however, we are only uni with 1x eco speed.

    First, 1x speed, 1x eco. Wouldn't mind 2x aor 4x research speed. Other than that, keep it as it is.


    As for merge possibilities, there aren't really that many.

    1. Being merged with high fleetspeed, high eco uni. :Vomit:

    2. Being merged with either Virgo or Aquarius (both 1x, 7x unis, with much higher DF%). Accounts are much, much, much bigger there, so any change in eco speed would make absolutely no difference. :Vomit:

    3. Being merged to Galathea (1x, 2x, 50%DF, 50DiDF). This uni is the most alike and probably most likely merge candidate. However, the merge will not happen for at least several months, probably a year. And even in that case, what would give way? DF, DiDF or Dorado players?

    4. Being merge target like Pagan suggested. Severely doubt this would happen.

    So guess what? My neighbors are very strict about not fleetsaving. Well, if they don't want their fleet, I am happy to capitalize on it.

    We come to the tale of nastiness and carelessness.

    I found Shadowed couple of weeks ago with a moon and graviton at the planet. So I took advantage of his sats. I thoroughly enjoyed those spoils. And back then I also spotted his fleet and his poor fleet saving habits. Sadly busy times prevented me from killing his fleet back then.


    So couple of days ago, I decided that my neighbors had enough of quiet, peaceful, uneventful life. So first went down the non-fleet saver. Yesterday I also spotted Shadowed making a terrible mistake of moving his fleet from the safety of his moon to a planet in system with me. And remembering poor fleet saving habits, after seeing early morning activity, I just had to check. And guess what? I saw fleet sitting on a planet, without the owner being online. And another busy day prevented me taking advantage of the fact, that fleet was sitting for 2 hours without defender being online. But since people are creatures of habit, I was thoroughly convinced, that today will be no exception. And what I find on lanx in the morning? A moon to planet deployment and a dirty planet to debris fleet save. And they were spaced just enough for me to be able to take both. And off course, my aggressive but mostly harmless neighbors were again nowhere to be seen, so attacking posed little risk. They actually turned really quiet past couple of days. Wonder why....

    Never the less, back to the battles in question. So first wave was sent at the deployment, a nice 3 second lanx. Sadly the defender came online 12 minutes before the deployment crash. But the defender could not prevent the second wave of attack. And here we go, make a dirty fleet save, and fleet is no longer there. :missilelauncher: :biggrin::biggrin: :fatgreengrin:


    Good luck on rebuild Shadowed, and use your moon. Otherwise you will find me searching for more sooner or later.


    So without further ado, I present a double :deathstar: destruction. Might actually be the first of the uni, not sure about that.

    Not much story here. Knew the defender keept his fleet on his planet, being sure nobody strong enough can touch his green status. Well, he was wrong. I waited a couple of days for a suitable opportunity to arise, waited for lack of activity on the part of defender and aggressive neighbors, spied, launched, destroyed and collected the spoils.


    Dedication goes to Khalgad , who convinced me it is nice to have some fleet and actually occasionally use it, and off course to all the chat friends. You know who you are. And also honorable mention goes to Marduk , was fun playing with you, hope we can repeat some day.


    Good luck on rebuilding Ryac, and remember: No FS, no fleet :crazy:

    I would love to state, that I am also one of those players coming out of retirement after 10+ years to play in a classic 1x uni, but that would be a lie.

    I returned after 10+ years to play Ogame, registering on last opened uni, not even knowing there is such a thing as speed unis. So I was in luck.


    As many before stated, 1x uni suits older players, that need to balance work, lifestyle, family with Ogame. Actually, it seems average age of players in Dorado is around 30. So, keeping Dorado as permanent 1x uni makes for such players actually makes sense. And I do support such notions.

    So gather around boys and girls!!!


    This is a tale, of revenge gone wrong, of pint of beer at the wrong moment, and somebody taking advantage of it.


    So, Mogul Castor wasn't really taking good care of his production, so I farmed him a couple of times. And that made him really mad. So he started looking for an opportunity for payback. So, yesterday, while I was getting ready to fleetsave, Mogul probed. And saw a small res pile on my moon, :cookie2: and smaller res pile on my planet. He launched. I started plotting the ambush :ninja:, needed to recall some raids to maximize the profits. So I jumped ships, deployed, sent recyclers and waited. And behold, despite all the activity on my planets, attacker didn't recall. Told me later, he forgot to recall the attack, because a friend came by for a pint of beer. Well, who am I to refuse such a nice careless gift? Especially from a member of FaL ally :huntsman:, for which I have a particularly soft spot in my heart, because of some other members [cough] Dark Wolf aka Goggles aka Grey Wolf :cbanned: and Coolhand [\cough]. So dedication goes to Coolhand and Dark Wolf.


    Defender was a really good sport, and I wish him a fast rebuild. Considering his production, it shouldn't take too long.
