Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Oh come now, it's a 4X game. Can you really be irked at BugKing or myself for focusing mostly on the "Exterminate" part? :D That said, Core did take me by surprise while I was offline for a few days. The Imperium was pretty much defeated by that stage (all the trade clusters were disrupted), but I s...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

A much smaller force of Eldritch can take out the citadels surrounding the target before the main fleet arrives while the player is AFK. That's assuming they have jumpbeacon access, otherwise I'd just send a gunship escort. Since AFK attacks are so OP, what do people think about say a 100% buff to a...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Yeah, they're quite weak. Same goes for starcruisers. Actually the only really effective units right now are the Minotaur (for defense and a strong but slow offense) and the Adamant/Undine (for a weaker and faster offense) And the "explorer meatshield exploit" counters everything, especially starfri...

Optimal tech level for efficient empire building

Question: What is the "best" tech level? I asked this question some time ago in the Era 3 thread, but never received a concrete response. So I decided to do a little experimentation myself... Considerations: 1. For simplicity, we will only consider choosing between TL 7 (for non Earthlike, ocean and...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Defection of any kind should definitely not be a mechanic. The advantage of attacking first is large enough as it is that there doesn't need to be any extra bonuses. Attacking AFK players is the best way to ensure victory and there certainly aren't any rules or even informal agreements that prevent...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Entertaining indeed are the squabbles of lesser powers. Chaos and conflict is a ladder, and the Imperium's violent past and present greatness is testament to this. To the so-called Emperor of Aelion: Imperial battlefleets outnumber yours by more than 10 to 1 after your most recent defeat. Care to tr...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Seems to be working again. Here is an updated map with the current state of the game as of cycle 4229, for anyone who needs it. The most significant recent event was a war between the Imperium and AelionRisen, resulting in uncontested Imperial victory and its replacing of AelionRisen as the dominant...

Players attacking then abdicating

Recently I'm having people spawn next to my empire, take out a few undefended worlds and abdicate shortly afterwards. Namely "Federation of Sol", who even had the same capital name as me (Terra) for a while, which is why I'm guessing it was deliberate. This is getting quite annoying especially since...

Galactic Era 3.4211 Imperial Propaganda Broadcast to all sentients: It has been 11 years since the Imperium has re-established itself as a contender on the galactic stage.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Ha, nice! I used to be an EVE player back in the day too... well, until one too many hisec ganks turned me off it. Also kinda sucks to lose millions of ISK in one poorly planned trip to low/nullsec. Yeah, I wasn't really too good at that game :mrgreen: Nice to see former CCP devs coming up with some...

***Incoming transmission*** It has been exactly 120 cycles since the fall of the last great civilized power in the galaxy, the Imperium . Today, we return. Imperial fleets have re-entered the galaxy through subspace rifts over a medium sized class M world, designation "Citadel" , located within a s...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

It seems like the galaxy has descended into utter chaos after I left. What fun! :mrgreen: Also, if I gather that KingdomofBugz is in a war with Ferengi, Bugz will be going down very quickly... Before I abdicated, starxplor told me they've apparently made a script to automate purchasing of Mesophon s...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've abdicated. I'm now officially hooked on this , which is basically Anacreon on steroids, so I don't think I'll be coming back for a long time haha! :mrgreen: And no, I will not be leaving parting gifts of fleets for anyone. It is the Imperium's final wish that all worlds east of the Terra cluste...
