R80 stats

Since this round is going into the last phases, the discussion about next rounds set should be re-opened.

This round we have seen a pretty close and entertaining round (from an outside view on kia atleast), and we have had a stats set that almost every alliance see some weakness to their strats.
This is why we should consider doing some small adjustments to this set, and re-run it again next round instead of gambling on a new set.

Re: R80 stats

Not sure if it's 'gambling' on a new set. Since one already got picked to be run in next round.

But still a good idea. Almost every round I regret not picking another race or Shipbuild. So would be fun to give everyone a second chance to pick.

Re: R80 stats

My impression of KIA is different. The stats are massively imbalanced, to the point that it might be better to just start over. Even if we ('we') decide to build on them, they'll need more than a few small adjustments.

Re: R80 stats

I think what this round has showed is the amount of class targeting is spot on for modern pa. Fi/co targeting 2 classes and fr/de/cr/bs targeting 3. It's the perfect balance.

We have been playing pa for far to long and pols/ally strategy quickly adapt to the stats. So any less and you get a xp whore round, whist any more and you get a real boring defensive feast with allys doing lots of deals.

Rather than rerun this set, I say we stick to this class template. As boring as it sounds and would lack creativity for any stat creator, it makes for the best rounds with balance between attack and defence.

What part of kia are you looking at though?
The race spread in the top100 looks similiar to last round, and that set has been ran 3 times.

This set has worked out great in both offense and defence, and could be better with a few minor changes.

I suggest:

Pirate init 7 -> 5
Scarab swap T1 with T2

Re: R80 stats

I'm seeing that Ter and Cat each have more planets than Zik and Etd combined and I'm seeing that Xan is woefully under-represented.

But, this is not the hill I want to die on. If you want to spend a lot of effort getting these stats into shape, then by all means, be my guest.
