The worst part about this kid was he didn’t have a level 3/4 farm built and was unable to build a training base. I didn’t invite him he joined himself. This joining alliance thing should be stopped on kong. It ruins peoples eras as it ruined mine.
Noob alliance are a bunch of pussys, they let their allies/slaves do their dirty work. We had to fight 4/5 other big alliances as well as noob at one time and had TDA as our allies but they weren’t a real help as they just hid behind us all the time didn’t do nothing.
I have nothing more to say other than i am done with this game.
Goodbye

You just quit again…..
and you will be back…..

Like a fungus, you always come back

Twice I have tried to get in to this game, first with server 1 and now with server 2. the problem I find is that the start is way to slow. I have played many of these types of games for years and this one is just way to slow way to quickly. it needs to be balanced so that a new player does not have to sit and wait for a day after an hour or 2 of play.

1 week of Newbie protection for free instead of 2 days

Too often the slow start coupled with agressive resource hunters kills off newbies before they get going.

Topic: EMP Game / Server 1 LULZ

(The hilarity of a threatening letter with so many typos aside…. )

Do not do something like that again.

Ackfoo targetted your fleet only so you won’t do something similar soon.

Lagavenger is my closest neighbour, our systems overlaps and as far as i know we have a great understanding and respect of each other. do not geopardise it any further in useless waste of ressources.

I consider most member of SN to be honorable people and i have the utmost respect for them, you will not have their support if you escalate thing to try to start a war.

Have a nice time rebuilding only your fleet

our goal is the unknown mission only, to complete it you are welcome anytime, to slow us is not a good idea

Now, imagine if the server were active and low ranks like me all decided to punk star bases and gates.

you’re the biggest hypocrite and baised in this game ive ever seen.

This is terrible reasoning. He’s playing the game well so he should get punished? Get out.

Its hilarious. He killed anyone close to his power level off, and now complains about it. Bummer? The game is where it is for him because he did it to himself.

If anything it highlights the balance issues with the end game. Once someone gets far enough ahead, there is not enough penalty to allow anyone to catch up to them. Usually called “overhead” or what have you. Like having your ships consume resources every hour.

Do you know this is a PVP game right? By bullying do you mean attacking players as intended? The game has tons of means to defend yourself, most players decided to ignore them and quit the game crying when they got raided. Tough shit.

I am fully aware of the PVP aspects, but part of empire is diplomacy. You strong-armed your way to the top, congratz. Just don’t expect the people you stepped on to get there to support your conquest. You completely failed the diplomacy part of empire building. There is no prize or reward for helping you, and therefore no incentive.

But if anything, you just showed your true colors with your comment. Enjoy the grind.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / How to Survive the horde!!

The horde is a joke. Free xp.

10 Long Rifles, they never even make the outer perimeter.
No, my base is not a PVP base. There isn’t a fortified corner, its a nice perimeter wall with a tower on each side of the main building, 2-3 on the base of each tower.

Naah. You guys have done a good job bullying and scaring players away. I am sure you can slog through the end game in a few months or so.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Admin Role

Oh my god, he is serious…..

No.

A thousand times no.

There are not enough words allowed in a post to express no with the emphasis required before this tumor of a thread to be shut down, locked, and buried with just about every other idea, if they can be called that, zaeem has ever had.

Can you see where this is going? A simple no will not cut it. This tumor needs to be cut out before it infects all these other new accounts that suddenly have fan-boy love for zaeem.

So please, to the powers that be, spare the new accounts the terrible infection, and a fate worse than death, and put both barrels to this thread.

Thank you

Topic: Battle Dawn / New Red boosting Developments to Battle Dawn/Improvements

Originally posted by zaeem786
My brains working fine, it’s yours that isn’t. I mean at the end of the day BD has to make as much profit as it can in order to keep the games from running.

Actually no. Here is why this is a horrible idea.

Games that use micro-transactions to succeed/profit need to make the player WANT to spend the money. To be happy to spend the money. Not have to spend the money. When players feel they have to spend money just to be on the level playing field, they leave because they know if they do spend the money, the goalposts will just be moved further away, requiring more money. And the game loses all but the OCDs that have to win. But then they leave because there is no-one new.

Spending reds to hurry units is the opposite of wanting to spending money. Units are rushed predominately for defensive reasons, which means your back is already to the wall and you are out of other options… and now you expect them to be happy about spending money to do so? This flies in the face of the psychology of the gamer. Ultimately this would drive away more potential casual gamers and further drive the wedge between the reds and the blues.

Remember tho, some things are not “settable” by the admin. I’m pretty sure unit numbers are not one of those… but yeah, cool idea.

And Champions just got that much more of a interesting.

Tho at 30 per room…. 15 rooms.. 450. I don’t know about S3, but S1 had 230+. Does that mean it will fill up and people locked out if not in soon enough?

Topic: Battle Dawn / Summer event ideas?

I still stand behind my idea of the expanding alliance size as a fun event.
(Alliance size 1 tic 1-200… 2 from 201-400… 3 from 401-600… 4 from 601-800… 5 from 800+)

Mars Event: Magnetic Storm.
Every 50 or so tics, the admin razes all gates and radars due to massive magnetic storms destroying the delicate gear. Colony gates and radars are protected.
Mars is a smaller world, but still, the loss of radars and gates will make conquering the world much more difficult.

Earth Event: Colonize the water planet!
At tic 1, all players are given 15000 oil and metal to kick start their colonies into full gear as the race is on colonize this strange water world for its resources and its mysterious (and very heavily defended) relics.

Fantasy Event:
Meh… I don’t like fantasy worlds. Someone else insert a good idea here.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Which chassis is better?

Build 60 infantry at your base. They are ready in 2 tics. 2 full squads
Repeat 2 more times. You have 180 infantry, 6 squads in 6 tics. Cost: 180 population

Build 20 tanks at your base. They are ready in 6 tics. 2 full squads. Cost: 60 population

No rushing needed. You can just build infantry faster. But it chews up population to do so.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Which chassis is better?

Originally posted by frostyicing:

I gotta go with vehicles too. But there are a few errors in your thinking. First of all, tanks cast 3 workers each to build, and veh cost 2. So the pop cost is the same for all 3 chassis. Also, inf are actually the SLOWEST to rank up. Sure, it only costs 30 xp each for an infantry to level up. But there are 30 inf in a squad, so it takes 900 xp to bring an infantry squad up a rank. For veh, it is 50 xp per rank * 15 veh in a squad = 750 xp/squad. And tanks, 70 xp per rank and 10 units in a squad, are the fastest at 700 xp/squad.

Yes, 3 pop per tank… 10 tanks = 30 people consumed in 6 turns
1 pop per infantry… 30 infantry = 30 people consumed in 2 turns. or 90 people consumed in 6 turns.
Thus you can spam out infantry units three times faster, but at the cost of chewing up the population and resource production.
Please explain my error there.

And as for XP, infantry meat shields die left and right, faster than the other two chassis, leaving more XP for the ones that you want the boosts going to (dam/range). YMMV there, but late game, i find myself producing almost meat exclusively with 20+ squads of buffed death dealing infantry.

I know I have been away from even looking at this game in over a year, but its still the same BD it was back then…. save for the abomination of 2tic Mars.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Which chassis is better?

There is no best chassis.

Beam Infantry >> Vehicles.
Expl Vehicles >> Tanks
Conc Tanks >> Infantry

But there is more….
Concussive damage type dies last…. Infantry tend to get chewed up more.
But, you can build infantry at three times the rate of tanks, and twice that of vehicles.
But, 3 squads of infantry chews up 90 population.. which can hinder resource production.
Infantry also (because of low hp/unit) heal up to full strength faster (think nukes and agents). They also level up faster.

Tanks and their hamz fans tend to get a lot of use because they have an aura of fear to the uninitiated.
Durable, but expensive. Best counter to infantry.

Which leaves the “safe” choice. Vehicles. The meta-game ends up with Infantry swarms shooting Expl against Conc Tanks…
neither are strong to vehicles. Infantry’s inherent bonus is washed out by the woeful 25% explosive damage.

People have won using with each type. But it is he that wins the meta-game who has the first fight advantage.
