Can you expand your explanation of the suicide defense? I would like to add it to the list in a more documented way. Thanks.
The key I was pointing out, and yes you're right it's more complimentary than contradictory, is that you can "trap" people into believing you can't get your prod out on time. People are suspicious of a slow steady buildup in prod but a sudden drop only 4 ticks before landing with say 3 factories and people think "no way can he get that out in time".


As for the other http://game.planetarion.com/bcalc.pl?id=nr6y6dov3bop4sk is a break even for a middle ranked player even though he loses all his harpies. If you're feud you obviously make a good profit there. If you're feud you can still break even as seen here http://game.planetarion.com/bcalc.pl?id=ual5hjol3m2p02g up to a respectable lower t100 slot.

Perhaps I should change the name of the tactic to something more along the lines of "Last minute production defense" and then use both methods as suggestions to how to do it. Against a vigilant attacker the method you suggest is definitely better, and is easier to explain, so I think I will just simplify it to the methodology you suggest with a footnote about the other method.

I managed a number of gentleman's agreements and apologies followed by recalls in R71 - does genuinely work.
