If we work together we can take him out...but are you all willing to work together to bring him down? There is 1.000.000.000.000 credits waiting out there...all we need to do is take his planets defences out.

Who cares if he is reading this...I like to put up a challenge.

Most people even think the game is over and we never catch up.
By the way...I did send an ingame message to both alliances so the real plans are going to unfold in private.

New Idea:

Would like to be discussed.....

I want people to have incentives for "inviting" other people to join the game, i.e. freinds and families, so, i was thinking somting along the lines of 1 free "random" tech upgrade for the inviters ship.

I.e.

XZ Invited YA to "SIGN UP" <- important, (means create a otf account, HAS to be a none otf member)

when inviting YA, XZ gives YA a special "code". Moderator checks the account (this WONT be automatic to protect against abuse).

And then for each person they invite, they get
free upgrade.

What do you think?

@ david,

A proven method to attract new players. Look at games like the world wide TRAVIAN or the Dutch MOBSTAR.
Both offer some stuck if you get someone to sign up.

One thing about it, both give the reward after the new player has made a goal( think of a X score here) else is abuse still a good possibility.

a little spawn in other games might be a possibility as well.
A week before a non-Beta round starts, just send in game msges to the players of other servers (bid downside, people will get offended, and looks amateur)

Regards'

Hobbie - Are you playing any more? You haven't logged on since 22nd June! I wouldn't mind your credits built up if you don't play again!

Thanks!

I was thinking today about how when in the game say if you get blown up half way through the game and have an escape pod that maybe it's possible to have it where instead of your ship getting set completely to Zero and having to start completely over on building your ship that maybe you start at level 5 or something

My reasoning for this thought is this. Say the game is halfway over and you have an escape pod but your ship is destroyed and your out of turns, it's going to take you forever to be able to rebuild your ship because you have to wait to accumlate enough turns in order to move around to much, and it's an easy way for someone who is in the top 5 to come in and take all the planets that belong to someone who is say in like 14 or 15th place as their shields and such on their planets will be down.

I dunno if something like this is even remotely possible or not. But just a random thought i had and figured i'd toss it out in the ring for discussion. Lol

If you put away enough in your IGB, being reset to 5 on all is just a small bonus.

Usualy it's not that harsh. When you get blown up and escape in an escapepod your lvl's go back to 0 indeed. But whit SOFA enables usually comes a bit of coding called "newbe-nice" or something. What it comes down to is that with all lvl 0 the sofa's aren't as effective as they used to. So if you have a bank and it is well defended you don't have to worry.

Maybe you will lose some of your weaker planets. But honestly, isn't that part of the game. To lose all you have someone must have scouted a lot. Most players don't do that much effort to take you down after a fall. They go for your bank and the other planets in that sector maybe...nothing more.

And like said...put away a little on IGB and you'll be flying around in no time.

Ow and yes, before I forgot...isn't SOFA supposed to be score dependant? Like when you attack a weaker player you are less effective than attacking a bigger player? That might also be part of the "newbe-nice" thing...

To start with the bigger there ship is and the smaller yours is, the less likely they would survive an attack on your planet (note: as long as everything isnt 0'd)

I agreee, part of the game is to "loose" not everyone can be winners, and managing your empire is part of this. if you loose yuor ship and people attack your planets its part of the game. i know it might be hard to diguest, however we cant make the game so no one can be destroyed. it would make the game pointless

Congratz to HellKiller for winning this round. Almost had you, but made a mistake while attacking your planet. Hope nex round will be a bit more fun...with Sofa enabled banks are going to be at risk all the time...good luck all.

Little issue:

The previous round i didn't join an ally.
But this time the new alliance of free stars is back. so i joined.
owww wait, sorry newest .
When i saw my bro started the ally i expected an invitation.
But to my surprise there was no invitation.
When I looked at the ally screen, and went to the newest alliance of free starts i could reject or accept the inv.?

I know in the old version you got an msg if someone send you a msg or inv.

Is this gone this version?
I think it was nice.

erm.... thats more to do with you and your brother using the same computer. I think. I know its sorted in otf version, ill take a look in the code to see, but i think this feature is noneexcistant in classic

It's deniniatly not because we use the same computer.

I use the computer at my work and at my house...Edwin uses the computer at his work and living place. None of these computers are used by both of us.

I do think that only the oldest Outpost BNT had that function. I have played a couple of servers lately, and never did I see an invitation message. Although I do remember those messages from a very long time ago. If I invite someone I'll send them a personal message, that way they surely know I invited them.

you can create an ally when you are in one,

During last round you didn't get invitation messages too.

As is the case for almost all servers that use the classic BNT code.

So if David manages to reinstall the alliance invitation messages we would be greatfull, but it is no critical bug or something.

By the way...I ment to say I would send a personal message from now on. Not that I have always done so...I have never done so before.
