Today's Training Material!

Postby SICON » Fri 20 Oct, 2017 23:32

Just posted this anny for my crew still learning the game. It is more help than SeWage gives his followers:

NINJA ATTACKS 101

Begin scouting outside your home galaxy in hostile territory for weakly defended bases.

Even if you are not going to be Heavy Cruiser spec, I am advising everyone to begin construction of small Heavy Cruiser fleets. These warp-capable units are very durable, and are of great value in taking bases with only ion turrets as defenses. In addition, they can shield-rape Fighters sitting on bases with no damage. They can also flee back to your home galaxy without the use of a jump gate.

Once you have a sizable force of heavy cruisers (40 - 50) and have scouted a number of bases to attack, launch your Heavy Cruiser fleet to an adjacent Astro of the base you want to hit in small pieces. Breaking up your fleet into several smaller ones will reduce detection times as follows:

3000 size (6 HC) - 42m 34s detection time
2500 size (5 HC) - 35m 33s detection time
2000 size (4 HC) - 28m 31s detection time
1500 size (3 HC) - 21m 26s detection time
1000 size (2 HC) - 14m 20s detection time
0500 size (1 HC) - 07m 11s detection time

Obviously less detection time means the enemy has less of a chance of noticing your attack force in time to stop it or do anything about it, but also keep in mind that the number of Fleet you can have at one time is limited by your computer technology level. Without the enemy possessing high-level jump gates at this point in the server, fleets of 3000 size should suffice.

Once your attack force has landed on the adjacent Astro, send the whole thing together to the base you want to attack next door. Remember to have some command centers on your own base to allow for pillage and occupation. If you do not have any command centers you cannot pillage the base!

After pillaging the base be sure to plunder all trade routes on the base as well. Our enemies may have started establishing long-distance trade routes by now, which are ridiculously profitable when eaten. Don't worry about the debris, as you should not have lost too many of your own ships if the base was weak enough. Furthermore, you cannot bring recyclers for these kinds of strikes as they are not warp-capable and cannot flee a galaxy without a jumpgate.

Launch your fleet in small pieces to an adjacent Astro of your next target and repeat the process!

The process I described above is called a ninja attack, as the attack force is small and comes with too little warning to prevent it. Use this technique to give our enemies The Humbling they need!


I hope the rest of you like pain and suffering applied to your economies.

I woudnt worry about that... you kniw we will be ranked 4th eventually as long as people enjoy being in ASAE....and there is nothing your atempted zerging can do anything about it....

Only ASAE players can change the faight of ASAE....nobody else....

But enjoy trying... we sure will like the entertainment... let nobody arange the excuse of RL time or the server is dead to quit trying....from now on :):)

Is my guild zerging? If that's the case, it is quite an accomplishment from a pickup group, most of whom are learning the game for the first time or relearning the game from a long hiatus.

I am actually quite satisfied with how successful we have been so far considering the unconventional way we have been playing that doesn't adhere to stronghold philosophy OR your mental retardation.

Lol....glad your learning something at least....however slow :)

And yep...we are advocating for ages that more strategies then plain stronghold vs ASAE way would greatly improve the dinamiks of the game...

Letz see wha you got...for now it still looks way to similar to stronghold....but instead of 1 cluster
Split between 2 clusters....

And it looks like you ....az alwayz...just order the others do the dirty job....

Cannonfodder for your own personal war games...

Wish i was wrong....for once.

And what dirty job am I instructing others to do? Farming your bases? I will happily do that myself when I find them.

You have the entirety of whats left of the diminishing player base chuckling at your little 'cock off'

Maybe you should just get a room and sort it out, because the pair off your piss parades are mostly made up of multis anyhoo

What ever happened to the cool stuff on the borums, MSPaint really is dead huh?
