Covop Bash Limit? Covop XP Bravery?

("Oh god another suggestion attempt to fix covops!")

Suggestion #1: How about a bash limit for covop missions? Let's say something similar to standard attacks, must be >50% your planet value and score.

This will hopefully stop covop farms being set up to a large degree. More importantly, this forces us to use covops on actual targets, not just inactive idle planets or newbs that init 500 roids and forget to buy guards and then emo-quit because they can't figure out how to stop the harassment.

Suggestion #2: Covop XP Bravery Factor boost. Incentivise covops on 'meaningful' targets by borrowing the bravery factor idea from attack xp. This could look something similar to

Covop xp = [Current covop xp] * bravery_factor

We could just use the same factor to keep things simple, calculated between 0.19 and 2. Maybe a higher maximum could be interesting to encourage covop xp play a bit.

Thoughts?

Suggestion 1 Comment:
I view cov ops as an opportunity for the smaller fries to be able to fight bigger fish, so think that the first suggestion closes off that route and limits some gameplay.

Suggestion 2 Comment:
Good suggestion and concept to incentivize cov op play. May be something to consider.
- Not sure what would be a 'meaningful' target though....maybe someone who has a lot of security guards? Since that's what people can scan and see that often determines why or why not they will cov op?
- Incentivizing going for different targets versus the same one over and over may help with the concern you had in suggestion 1 and prevent harassment/bashing/farms too.

Re: Covop Bash Limit? Covop XP Bravery?

cov ops need no overhaul. a litte tuning is welcome though.

they clearly need a bash limit. so many bad things in pa would be gone if the normal bash limit for attacks would be applied to cov ops too.

Easy, logical and comprehensive approach.

alternative approach could be: only hit above you. either value or score. cant hit if both are below.
