yay... now vasari can not only get rediculous metal and crystal income... but they can get extra $$$ income, and can use it to build frigs right next to my homeworld! yay!
yeah... because the 3-5 neutrals you find in maybe 10% of maps is going to make a MASSIVE difference to income. you are right, i was so stupid, it was obviously so muh more OP than even Missile Barrage, thanks for pointing me in the right direction with your COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY SARCASM!
and if you have a UCGW with a neutral frig factory right next to your homeworld... and cant manage to maintain control of it, meaning you cant defeat a few scouts... then i wonder how you manage to win games at all?
vasari scouts can do wonders already... expecially if they are mircoed... 5 or so scouts can capture all three of those metal extracters at that gas gaint.... and now you need to send a few ships there to clear them out... then a colony ship... and have it regen enough antimatter... by which time they had moved on and captured another few grav wells of neutrals...and most skilled vasari on random maps generally spend their first 100 fleet supply on nothing but their free space egg of doom and scouts.
spending fleet supply on Egg and scouts... how is that any different from any other vasari player on any other map anywhere else? and yeah, so they are capturing neutrals... while you are out capturing planets... who cares? thats a much bigger balance issue (if its even an issue, i dont think so) and i dont think adding 1 more neutral extractor is going to kill the game.
But, hey, if you prefer that nothing changes, we can all go back to playing Vanilla, how does that sound, sport?
