What's precious to you?

Post#1 » Thu May 09, 2019 10:08 am

I've reached the heady heights of level 8 and the things that I value (and in particular fight for) have changed as I have progressed.

In the beginning I valued alloy. Then I discovered fighting and raiding and alloy was easy to get.

But troops cost money and I had to work hard to make sure I made at least that money back in the attack. Now credits were precious.

But generation and loot and storage grow exponentially while troop costs are linear so eventually credits were no longer a worry.

But then I was able to store and spend contraband, but not generate it and contraband became precious.

And at not far off the same time I realised the value of data fragments and crates became the valuable thing.

So now I'm at the stage where I've almost always acquired enough contraband for a new droideka upgrade before the last one has finished. Frags and therefore crates and wars and conflict placement are important.

But not medals. Never medals in my time playing so far.

So what's precious to you in the game? What do you fight for?

The most "precious" item of all... Time...

I do what I can to save time in the game like...

  1. Using Units with faster Speed to destroy Bases quicker.
  2. Using Units with overall Greater Damage to destroy Bases quicker.
  3. Chasing Frags to get Better Units which help with #1 and #2 above.
  4. Not attacking Bases where a "win" is unlikely causing me to "waste time" rebuilding Units.
  5. Using Squad Relocation Perks to save time jumping from Planet to Planet.
  6. Other Actions which help with "Game Time Management".
Just some thoughts...

Getting frags to upgrade units to get them better.

Improving base defense over time to get better conflict point chances while away or sleeping.

Maxing units so they don't take up space in future drops.

Hehe :). Although I was expecting such answers to be more related to rings ;)

Good answer. I do find myself doing things to save time too: choosing units based on time to build across all of my buildings, using faster units and so on. And definitely no air power if it can at all be avoided.

jet & gr frags to get me to armory level 10. The donut wagons have made the chase for jet frags slightly less important though.

What is precious to me is to vanquish my enemies and chase them before me, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their speeder bikes and clasp to my bosom their wives and daughters.

Frags....frags...and more frags.

The game is and always has been an arms race.... The armory just intensified it.
Peace means having a bigger stick than the other guy.

Conan or Neitzche? Although I think the latter might have influenced (writers of) the former.
