There appears to be an error in the UGC Mercenaries Flank cost.
It is currently listed as the same as Regulars Flank cost.

Thanks, Spoon, for the new format. It is, indeed, much more convenient to read.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

So. First it was 0rph3u5 while he was away, and then, after I had logged out, like a coiled viper waiting for the right moment, he has struck again! :p

I was curious about what was in those posts, so I went and found out, but there was nothing of any value in them. They were essentially obsolete.

Now, about the Starbases, do I understand correctly that they can deal damage up to 5 times a phase if something is in range?

Also, how does repairing work? Do we have to pay to do it?

You understand correctly, and starbases follow the same rules as garrison fleets when it comes to repair (added it to the post)

Thanks.

Oh, do fleets have to move around the Starbase on the map or can they occupy the space it's in or fly through it?

The post says that fleets can't occupy or move through the starbase.

Thanks. I must have missed that bit. It's like playing Advance Wars. Plane can't fly over a submerged sub! :p

Spoon, can you please fill us in on some of secrets of fleetbuilding? some of configurations I've been playing through dont measure up to current fleet types because there are some "discrepancies" (e.g. CRF Carrier Flank has 50 Strength more than 3 Escort Carriers combined)

I don't know exactly where it is, but I can tell you it's definitely true. I've seen it, it's one of the balance changes Spoon made.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."

<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"

<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?
