Ironically, you can sleep, because you can get more done in a shorter amount of time.

I say yes, bring back the 6 tickers.

Topic: Battle Dawn / "Fog Mode"

I like this idea. You can put up a sat scan, but once it goes away, you cannot see colonies, or where OPs are located any more.

Once you have established a radar, or your local colony view area, you can see any colonies and OPs in that area. If you are jammed, you can see the outlines of OPs and colonies, as it stands now.

Inf ratio of 21 range + 9 armor = 30 workers, 5,100 gold, 2,100 lumber
Cav ratio of 10 range + 5 armor = 30 workers, 5,000 gold, 2,000 lumber

Correct, infantry train faster. But this isn’t really a huge benefit except for specific cases where you are being attacked, or you convert an OP into a TB to defend it.

This is a good thing in pretty much any situation. It means an Infantry user at the same ability of a Tank user will have 3x the number of units that the Tank user has.

Battle to battle is the same result. But more units, makes for more territory you can gain/control.

the fact that those were range 4 hamz do say something(not a glitch in battle sim)

The fact remains the same. He is misleading, by not stating all the facts. At the end of the day, all things being equal, ratio squads are the best build. This has been proven time and time again.

Here is the secret to BD: Damage is 1000x better than the standard “Pro Range Build”

1st, ignore that stuff these alleged ‘pros’ push on you about chassis, they only tell you such so your easier to conquer (never trust them). Range is pure shit, too costly in oil and does little damage. The perfect build is 50% damage and 50% armour. You don’t believe me? Look at this battle, the “pro build” vs damage troops:

or here again the HAMZ win out (damage anti inf tanks):

http://prntscr.com/2uputw

Personally I think damage needs to be nerfed its so powerful. If you want to win eras you go with damage. Those “Pro” players telling you to use range are just trying to make you weaker and easier to conquer!!!! Don’t listen to them. Nothing is better than a pure damage army, the only reason I won mars was because my pure damage:amour army cut through those “pro” builds like a hot knife through butter.

ALL HAIL THE HAMZ!!!!

Another thing that few people know is that if you nuke yourself instead of losing units / workers like when you nuke enemies. The nukes will actually add workers / units!!!!!! Because nukes vs. hostile alliances cause a negative outcome when applied to yourself / your alliance it applies a positive bonus. For example if you have 100 workers and manage to nuke your own colony 10 times you end up with 239 workers!!!!!!! (100*10% gain ^ 10 nukes)

So in order to beat those boosting pros make sure to nuke your allies and yourself AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!!!!

In the first screen shot, those squads are NOT ratios squads of any sort. If you run the battle simulator, the damage tanks lose badly. There is no loss of the infantry armor at all.

The second screenshot is ALL armor defense. No range at all. If you run the battle simulator, the tanks lose again, but the armor inf lose ten units.

I even did those screenshots with the defenders down to one hit point. The tanks still lost. Now this may be a glitch in the Battle Simulator, but I doubt it.

I like Cavalry and Infantry, with cav being my favorite. But running an infantry ant farm is greatness when you have good players backing you up.

I think if we’re realistic with ourselves, we can say the following:

As a general rule, the slower a world is, the more people are able to play it competitively.
If a world only has two (or less) actual competitive alliances (intending to win and actually active/organised enough to pull it off) then it is a pretty pointless world.
Kongregate does not have enough people who are competitive at a 6 tick speed to make enough alliances for the eras to be interesting.

Time to bring in the 30 man alliances

Topic: Battle Dawn / More Special Eras

Mars blind draw four square.

Right before the era starts, the Admin randomly places all the colonies into four equal alliances. The alliances are named 1, 2, 3, 4. You can not leave an alliance, nor be booted from one.

The board is drawn into four equal squares. Same amount of mines/mills in each one.

May the best team win.

of course, we know nothing of the background coding issues. i think the graphics should have stayed the way they were. it looks 8 bit now. the coloring, and the upper left and right menus cover half the page now. also, everything is over sized and over done.

.com vs kong topic on BD, kinda relevant. A royal rumble between the two on this event might be cool. I’m pretty confident kong would win.

if you could lure us old retired bums back, we would take the .commers all day long.
