Galaxy Status - Reported?

A feature for trusted planets.

They see incoming on the galaxy status,

x:x:x x:x:x Beta Cat 1100 Attack 10 Reported?

You click Reported? once you have reported it, when its reported it changes to:

x:x:x x:x:x Beta Cat 1100 Attack 10 Reported by PlanetName (hover over to see the tick or something).

Easy

Would be better if incomings of alliances members were visible in their tag and from there officers/HC deal with them.

Saves the hassle for fake chans / relay bots / etc.

But that doesnt reward activity; there still needs to be a reason for people to hop on IRC or check their planets during the long nights; seeing whether you have incoming is generally a good enough motivation for many to come online, and once online they provide the fleets to defend against those reported incs.


Having said that, a more automated system would be nice; eg, the button that stoom was talking about reported the incs in-game, rather than just a checkbox for people to declare to everyone else that its been manually done.

And hopefully the fact that its a "trusted only" feature means it shouldnt be abused (as much) by in-galaxy "spies".

Re: Galaxy Status - Reported?

True UN, but its not like there are many of us left playing PA

So lets make things simpler so we enjoy the game? There have been numerous times that P splits, relay bot goes down or other events and people wake up with uncovered incs because none was able to report them.

There will be even fewer if those that do play never login

What's the point of reporting def if no-one is online to send it?

Re: Galaxy Status - Reported?

Shoshuro is right, but I think we have to acknowledge that this won't happen unless the big 5 or so alliances at least agree to participate.

As for the feature - I think it is a good idea regardless.

Re: Galaxy Status - Reported?

I don't remember PA being made to play on IRC or P being an integral part to it.

As for the original suggestion: I personally feel it takes the game one more step towards becoming a completely automated spreadsheet where actually playing it, let alone playing well, becomes irrelevant. I have already stated my views on moving towards such a direction.

Re: Galaxy Status - Reported?

who plays planetarion just for the game? I play for the banter on irc

I've tried a number of online games but quit soon after as I couldn't find any real ppl and there was no simple universal system like netgamers.

Most the people who stop playing dnt seem to have a irc nick or alliance.

I mean would you play wow if no one else did?
