Asteroid shields

What about a construction that drops max cap on your planet? E.g. 20% of your constructions this mean max cap is dropped by 2% (4%?). A cap of say 25%-50% would be introduced.

Just throwing the idea out there whilst on the train

Re: Asteroid shields

Depends on the quality of the stats...

If the stats are good attacking ones then it is worthwhile
However if the stats are defensive as R43 then I would say its a no go zone.

Re: Asteroid shields

It sounds like a cool Idea. You prolly would want to make it so 20%(max) would be about -50% cap. So instead of capping 25% you'd only cap 13% of what ever. It would definatlly make people chose between those and Fc's.

Re: Asteroid shields

I'm not sure this will have any effect other than slowing the game down.

Re: Asteroid shields

Akin to the holoroids of old, they went down like a lead balloon and were scrapped either in beta or in R1, too damned long ago to remember.

We already have cap limits based on value/score to prevent horrendous noob bashing lets leave it the way it is.

Re: Asteroid shields

Holoroids were scrapped after round one.

Anyway I think this is a terrible idea. It is already hard enough to take roids from the top players.... this just makes it harder. We need more roid transfer (aka capping) not less.

Re: Asteroid shields

I don't think top players would bother with these things, to be honest. If you never get roided in the first place, why care how much attackers cap?

Just ask Shaz, Arc, or Dav, the top 3 players from last round if they were have preferred to be able to avoid loosing a percentage of cap. All 3 were roided last round (Shaz admittedly only on the last day).

Re: Asteroid shields

In exchange for up to 30 FCs or mines? I don't think I even need to.

Re: Asteroid shields

Naw, it would be in exchange of amps, dists, or factories. FCs you max at 60, and refineries stop being profitable to build in the latter 1/3 of the round typically. A couple of these would make a big difference when you have a large number of roids, which is also typically late in the round. Also just a couple of these early in the round could make it a lot harder for people to steal roids off of you and perhaps lower your incomming as people look for easier targets. This game more things in it that encourage attacking strategies, not things that encourage fortress strategies.

I dont think it would make people switch targets, everyone always goes for easy roids and if they think you're easy roids. Then capping 70 roids instead of 80 is still a nice attack.

Re: Asteroid shields

Yeh i mean top players get roided not for 'the cap' but for the fact of taking away some of the roids and giving smaller people in the lolwaves on them large xp gains helping boost an alliances score. As Light says i doubt anyone is going to care about a small percentage drop in roids capped aslong as you are capping them - invariably in this game now planets get bashed by teams of 4-5 planets and the cap is lowered anyway so it would be no different

Plus it kind of creates a neagitive roiding atmosphere if you want the game to be more attack based then you want it to be easier for planets to be roided.

Maybe making galaxy eta 6 instead of 5 would help that a bit and push more reliance onto galaxy activity and alliances and away from lazy cross deffing

Re: Asteroid shields

increase galdef eta to 6 and make the def able to def for 2 ticks in a row :P ?
