How to stop Delta from Dieing

Postby Aliens from Mars » Wed 11 Jan, 2012 10:04

Don't quit. Seriously, all of you: don't give up if you lose your fleet, even if it's 200m strong. It's not over, with active players (aka, people that didn't quit the server) you can stage ninja ops on the winners, creating an asymmetrical crash that your 20m fleets can win. Soon 20m fleets become 40m, 40m fleets become 100m, and 100m fleets become 200m. Just give it some time, and play smart.

@FutureWinners: let your opponents have a chance to rebuild. I know you hate them, but remember that they're 1/2 of the equation for a fun server. I don't want to take this line of suggestion too far, but perhaps split up your blob into miniblobs, so your opponents actually have a chance of coming back. Without them Delta would die and the server wouldn't be much fun, and we'd have to play Lyra or Alpha or something (yuck!).

<3 you Delta, keep up the good work, and keep having fun (this is a game, after all).

Just due to all the amazing stories I hear about how fun Delta "was" , I thought of creating an account on here and getting at least a year upgrade. I just don't know if its worth it. It would take at least 6 months to get 20 mil fleet, and I have this feeling that once you get above level 30 on here, you will get crushed. Pondering on whether it would be worth bothering...

Any pro-tips?

That would be all fine and dandy if there was actually a blob crash in the works, but alas there is not so this thread is rather irrelevant imo.

Delta is far from "dying"

Unlikely you'll get stomped armenia - people will derb you if they notice you leaving something tasty lying around but in general 95% of the server fleet is more preoccupied with the standoff of the last 12-18 months.

10 prings max, and you'll be good. Even less if you're in the right SH, in the right guild. Everyone has been saying Delta is dead for 2 years, but stuff is still going on. In the past 1-2 years, there have been major shakeups in who controls the server.

It definitely is a long commitment, but a good bit of it is simming or scouting for targets. You might as well just take advantage of the new year's upgrade, and if you want more, upgrade for a year after that.

Build in D00, hardly anyone bothers to farm there.

no server ever "dies" its just ppl get stuck in there routines...

i could come to ur server and make it a fun place.. but im not gonna come if u have those stupid alpha pact terms where u cant plunder trade routes on hits...

so... are there any stupid undeclared unwritten rules ppl need to know about before zerging into delta? :think:

The wolf that one hears is worse than the orc that one fears....ha ha

This isn't lolalpha. Only rules are established DNHs, ect. Tho you could probably break them if you kept to your normal scouting... :paranoid:

Delta isn't meant to pussy foot around in. :D
