Army Changes?

Postby GTAce » Tue Dec 28, 2004 2:19 pm

We'll be resetting the army some time...probably once we figure out all the changes that need to be made, and actually make them...

So...let us know what needs to be changed, what you think will make the army better next time around.

Dont just say stuff like "you need to prevent people from reaching so-and-so as fast"...give us a way in which to fix it...tell us what we should increase/decrease/prevent...etc

I don't know who here has played Earth 2025, this army system is pretty much a much simplified version.

The army system needs alot of changes, we can buy upgrades too often and after a few of those the money gain skyrockets... then you can just buy everything.
IF WE CAN.. we should make a few changes to make it more rewarding, you know like here we just buy an upgrade everytime and do the same thing over and over, it should take longer to be able to buy upgrades, and basically the defensive and offensive upgrades should function like ages...

I don't know if u get my drift I would explain it more in depth


Sooo my suggestions
1. Make the def/off upgrades much more expensive, and add more upgrades (so that upgrades are more rewarding).
2. Take out some of the armory add ons like... twig.
3. BIG thing: IF possible... edit the change some values in the formulas behind the system or something so as to reduce money boom and some other things.
4. eemm.. I'll post later with some more

Considering I have absolutely no idea how this system works.. its a bit hard to explain in depth... try spotting something in the formula that causes it to go exponential and reduce it.


AND/OR.. Make the money gain after 15 hours instead, so that you don't have to check your account twice a day or you'll get screwed.
...along with that goes the unit production, try tweaking that too.. they probably are hand in hand.

nothing is exponential

you get gold based on the amount of units you have...the reason it SEEMS exponential is because your army is always increasing, thus you get more and more gold every turn..but not at an exponential rate

and unit production relies solely on how much $$ you put into units produced per x hours

Once you get to 15 units per hour, the upgrade costs stays at 50000.

I think you should change it so it actually keeps increasing the cost after 15...

I concur. Actually, this would be a bigger help to those who start late. It's hard as heck to catch up in army size if there is no punishment for continually increasing the size of one's army by increasing soldier gain per turn. That might help with the problem DV8 was having with "the big money boom" also. If you can change the cost of increasing one's army size to be more expensive I mean.

Just a note, I understand that the army size grows every 6 hours anyway, but it is the difference between 2 or 3 a turn and 11, 12 or 13 a turn.

Well, Lep is the reason I made unit production cost stop at 50k....

Reason you ask?

Well...if you think about it...you're paying 50,000 to get one extra unit every 6 hours...Even IF you take into account the units you are gaining, it takes a long time for those extra units you're making to actually pay for the money you spent upgrading them...

I mean, if the unit upgrades were at what they were when i first set them...you're talking about ~100,000 to upgrade to 25 units per 6 hours...do you realize how long it would take to pay off 100,000 thanks to one extra unit per 6 hours?

And it would probably be better to have then not be able to get a new upgrade for awhile...

I mean once you get to 15 you can upgrade about 3 times if you just spend money on getting more units...

Then your up to 25 and gaining money at a crazy rate.... Then your just buying Ion cannons and blah blah...

The upgrades are the source of evil I tell you! :o
