You guys sure also know how to play the game :wink:
In this game, I got a very decent start with Chato and Birdies. Grabbing Eaxxaw soon and later some Egassem wasn't so bad either. Not sure the game is over, but things start to look brighter for TSO1egAh!

In my world it's National Security Secretariat but never mind.

So what I want to know is, how are you three going to abide by the rule that the game can only be won by an alliance of two people, or a single person. TSO01eg vs L29Ah?

Well, my comment was from the spectator's point of view, taking my blood spilled for granted. If you are not planning to kill me yet I'll try to get some weight and come back on you.

Players of the sixth MP slow-game, I'd like to ask you something:

How do you perceive the comsat problem now with the current change of base hull costing 6 PPs and counting for fleet/part upkeep?

I've been trying to abuse it for 50 turns now, and I see that it is still a viable tactic to hinder enemy attacks, used specially when fearing an attack where offensive forces are considerably stronger than defenders, but I don't see it is OP, although I'm not quite sure. I've been in the position of the attacker (against TSO) and in the position of the defender spamming comsats (against o01eg and L29Ah). Comsats allowed me to survive attacks in which I had way less PPs than the attackers (down to 50%), but I got the impression so many hulls floating around were hindering (substantially increasing the cost of) my production of armed ships. I think there is room for further increase of the base hull cost, maybe up to 8.
I'll run some simulations sometime, but what's your perception on this subject?


Also, for next game (hopefully) we will have the following additions/fixes for alliance gameplay:
[*] Allied Drydock repair: your ships will repair at the drydocks of allied empires
[*] Allied Fleet Field Repair: if your ship is in the supply of an allied empire with FFR, your ship gets the repair effect; if you have FFR but your ship is in the supply of an allied empire without FFR, your ship won't repair.
[*] [BUG FIX] Items in the production queue of a planet gifted to an ally are acquired by the recipient empire and appear at the end of his production queue (won't finish if the requirements aren't met).

So we can make it a team-based game.

Ouch, right.

I will leave for holidays tomorrow, I should have internet access but would be thanksful for a turn duration of 48h (at least until I'm there).

Would you like another week of playing after that or should we consider concede now (so we start seventh game with the new PRs next week)?
