How can a low level defend against a high rank

Postby mrwhippy » Tue 19 Dec, 2017 00:23

How the heck is a rank 400 player supposed to defend themselves against a rank 50 player???

He has a 2440,485 sized feet over my base

DMTNT has ruined Hydra server for the rest of us

I know you like the forum trolling, so i'm not questioning you about answering this.
My only question is:
- Do you still play?

by play I mean login at any server.

To provide a more serious answer:

You have several options, in order from least bad to worst:

1) Join a strong guild that's capable of protecting you. On Hydra it looks like this means DMTNT, FTA, Oh no, and GO. Joining one of the others won't do you any good if you're in one of DMTNT's strongholds though. You'd have to relocate.

2) Quit Hydra and play on a new server, and this time don't fall so far behind (also, join a good guild).

3) Quit Hydra and play on Alpha.

4) Fight back. There used to be a tutorial on fighting off occupations but I can't find it anymore? Basically, you need to be active and pick away at his fleet using exactly the right compositions, or even going after his bases and other occupations instead of trying to free yourself (don't lose protection doing this, if you happened to get knocked back under 30). It's debatable whether you should go after his guild or not. You almost certainly can't take them, but make yourself annoying enough and they might ask him to back off. Or they'll join in and help farm you.

5) Beg for clemency. The problem with this is a) a lot of players are dicks, and b) even if you convince one guy to be nice his guildmates might not be so amenable.

6) Quit Hydra.

7) Drop under level 30 and get Planetary Ring tech, then turtle your way to not-being-farmed-quite-as-badly. This makes a little more sense on 2.0 servers than 1.5, as they won't be able to just drop tons of fleet on your head and forget about it, but it's still not very effective.

8) Admit you're a hopeless farm and join ASAE.

Technically, yes.

The only way to win is to stop playing.

despite the name calling of the armchair judge above...

you can join ASAE if wished and we show you how you can work around...

one thing is sure...if you join the enemy you become your own enemy

all my bases are free...we are nicely ranked....no isues on Hydra...

you probably build up your acount in a small area in a small guild in DMTNT backyard?

Same name...same guild...all servers... :biglaugh:

1) Do not insult the attacker, its a game. Making things personal will not improve your situation.
2) Build the direct counter to his Occupying force, fighters if possible with CC - if Fighters will not dent his force build Ion Bombers, enough to kill for a profit.
3) Steal as much derb as you can on the tick, using point 2 just before the tick and having Rec arrive right after to collect and scoot imediately.

Doing those three tells the guy it will cost him in the long run, and there are usually easier targets than this.

If for some reason this isn't working, then you or your guild probably violated point 1 - or the server is so dead/one sided there is no-one else for him to go farm.
In this case your better off going to a new server, or accepting that your going to be Occupied and work with that knowledge.

You could drop outside the level he can farm you, but then he will just pass you off to someone lower level in his guild so they can farm you instead.

End of the day people farm for profit, or as noted because they have nothing else to do, or you did something to upset them.
If its for profit you can do something to make it unprofitable, otherwise you need a bigger fish to come smack them or accept your a small fish in a small pond.

Proof that some players need to actually learn to play the game

Heh. That comment made me laugh. Level protection is broken if not anything else. Being under level 30 in a mature server means you can make big bucks, annoy people and not be punished for it.
