Reminder: Why you should Fleet Save

|

Published: Sep 23, 06:24 AM by: Robert ~ Voidhawk

Well, it happened. I got smashed… This was almost my entire fleet.

Defender VoidHawk (X:XXX:X)

Destroyed

The attacker has won the battle!
He captures
8480 Metal, 3000 Crystal and 176409 Deuterium

The attacker has lost a total of 4592000 Units.
The defender has lost a total of 38249000 Units.

At these space coordinates now float 7603500 Metal and 3739500 Crystal.

AND! He even got all the recycle haul. I won’t give out his name unless he leaves a comment. All I will say is that this was in Uni 1.

UPDATE: Since this time, I have rebuild a good portion of my fleet. And added two levels of Weapons, 1 of Armor and 1 of Shielding. Plus 3 Nanite factories, several mines, 2 levels of Intergalactic Research Network and another level of both Computer Technology and Espionage Technology.

So, to answer both the question of “what will I do now” and “I got fleet crashed, what should I do”? Go rebuild!

  1. Aww, that sucks. Tell us who he is, and someone in Uni 1 can kill him for you.

    What are you planning to do now?

  3. >I lost all my fleet what should i do

  4. You think thats bad. I was crashed by 3500 battle ships from 3 players in the top 15!(uni5) I mean I had 11733 ships and defence (all together) and I lost:
    “The defender has lost a total of 53106000 Units.
    At these space coordinates now float 8035500 Metal and 5040300 Crystal.”
    Thats 45,000 points of ships!! I felt strong enough not to fleet save but this reminds me that no body is safe when there alliance attacks in your uni! So dont for get to fleet save. (To Owner: If you want I can send the battle report)

  5. Same happend to me lost 15.000 points on ships. I

  6. i have lost my fleets 3 times in the past week and it has only taken me a day to rebuild half of it because i have 8 coloneys and on all my coloneys i just build fleets and send half of each fleet to my home planet and the other half just sits there incase i get attacked


    — evil icecream    Jan 9, 05:31 PM    #
  7. well i lost 65000 points, 50000 in fleet and 15000 in defence,, and that all beacause i did get a ban ! i only sad 1 word to a player who was bothering me for a long time… i said pussy, dont only scan but attack sometimes ;)

    And i get a 2 day ban, before i had 193000 points now 125000 :(((


    — koekie    Feb 26, 06:31 AM    #
  8. Yeah, once I got into 5000+ points, all these people targetted me, and I forgot to fleetsave, so my home fleet got crushed, it was 100 light fighters, 50 battleships, 10 large cargo ships, but I didnt get a moon


    — relam13    Mar 10, 06:52 PM    #
  9. hey guys im really new to the game call me a noob if u want but how do u fleet save?


    — DemonDude    Mar 12, 01:44 AM    #
  10. i got fleet crashed too yesterday i only lost 7 light fighters and 4 small cargos but it was my first crash


    — cool guy    Mar 16, 12:41 AM    #
  11. ive been attacked by a guy called nokia in uni 3 and he destroyed 20 battle ships 44 light fighters 10 heavy and 19 cruisers just so he could have some resources thats why i now fleet save

    if anyones in uni 17 join D.K


    — kenshin    Mar 29, 03:57 AM    #
  12. to fleet save u simply order ur fleet to move to another planet
    and send it at the smallest amout of speed
    during flight they can not hurt ur ships


    — gogothee    Apr 8, 07:33 PM    #
  13. Wow, you must be horrified :rolleyes:

    Learn to fleetsave, very few players will bother shooting debris fields to find you if you’re a small fish in Uni 1.


    — Winchester    Apr 12, 12:48 AM    #
  14. saw my posts in the other reports?all i have in my fleet is 1 death star!all my other ships were long gone and done for.they left 9000k debris after that giant battle(20 % chance of moon forming).:`(.but my death star made the rest of the attackers ship go down the drain and there the battle ended.now my death star is my most prized ship.:`).

  21. i got a 3 day ban how will that affect my production?


    — Zal    Jul 30, 09:47 PM    #
  22. I just got fleet crashed by some guy who was fleet saving himself! He sent a fleet of 90 battleships to my planet half full of recources and took just 40k recources from my planet. But he destroyed my entire fleet which had 2000 points tied up in it. From 7000 points, I went back to being a NooB.

    And he did this in a period of around 1 hr while I was watching a DVD and waiting for some research and fleet building to finish. The 1000k DF wasn’t there by the time I or the members of the alliance I’m in could get any recyclers to the DF.

    I don’t have a fleet to fleet save anymore, but when I get one, I’m just going to send it to a far out galaxy and fleet save it between 2 colonies the whole time.

  30. At these space coordinates now float 7603500 Metal and 3739500 Crystal.

    How do u fleetsave? if u have a moon, go from moon to debrise, unable to be tracked so chance of being crashed nearly 0..

    Thats not too much, especially for uni1..


    Ceasar    Nov 21, 05:36 AM    #
  31. can some one plz tell me how to fleet save because i dont get it do i send other ships some where??? or do i send them to another colony?


    duasreetsoldier    Dec 12, 01:03 PM    #
  32. Fleetsaving is easy. Simply find a nice safe place to send your ships, like a debris field, or inactive planet with no defences, select ALL of your ships and load them with all of your cargo, adjust the speed so they don’t come back until you’re next online.

    If you’re being attacked, send your fleet away to the next planet a couple of minutes before he gets to you…. then recall them as soon as the attack finishes.

    My first fleet crash was 330 battleships, 10 bombers and 10 destroyers.

    I ran out of deut and couldn’t save them!!

    So keep your deut supplies ripe guys!


    doofs    Jan 3, 04:56 AM    #
  33. my man the bestt way is keep ur fleet in the space or fllet saving but if the attacker is a in the same colony & he have a moon u can’t do anything cos of the phinx that infrome him @ what time ur fleet will be in the base so he send it when ur fleet is in @ their is 1 or 2 sec difff that happenes not much
    but all u ccan do is a fleet save all the time ur off & if u wanna rebuild all the fleet do it but bi carefull


    — grim    Jan 9, 09:47 PM    #
  34. You can fleetsave from your own moon without being phalanxed – I moved all of my little ships to one planet and built thousands of the suckers just to get a moon.

    My attacker pwned me – then went ahead and explained how best to use the moon! Bless him!

    Now I send all my main fleet to the moon before i fleetsave, and then save to the nearest debris field (if there isn’t one, I make one using probes) with a nice slow speed.

    Unfortunately he can still phalanx a planet you’re attacking to figure out when your fleet will get home, bear that in mind!


    Doofs    Feb 1, 04:40 AM    #
  35. To fleetsave, i will send my fleet from galaxy1 to galaxy 9 at 10% speed


    — Supremegod    Feb 19, 02:41 PM    #
  36. 5 fleet crashes. The worst was 50 Destroyers, 500 BS’s, 1K CR, 5000 LF, 500 LC. Nearly everytime I had a 20% moonchance. I sti8ll don’t have one, so fleetsaving is a pain in the ass when it comes to phalanx…


    — BlueVD    Mar 2, 08:23 PM    #
  37. How long does the debrie field stay there and if you send you recyclers out during a moonchance do you lose some of the moon chance? Finally can you mine other debrie fields or only someone you attacked or have been attacked by?


    Slyfoxx    Mar 17, 12:28 AM    #
  38. Moon is created either instantly after battle (in same place, where you see moonchance) or never.
    When debris appears on map, it’s allready after judging the moon.

    Anybody can clear any debirs.

    noone attacks me cause i am a mini trtle with 70 light lasers’ 12 rocket launchers, 6 heavy lasers, and 2 ion cannons. i have no ships at at all except espionage probes and solar satilites cause my fleet got pulverized noone ever attacks me even much stronger people cause they dont think its worth it cause they dont get debris.

  44. Man that sucks! I feel for you since I recently had the majority of my fleet crashed (14% moonchance at that >_


    — Sa    Sep 5, 11:45 AM    #
  45. To those who say: I leave my fleet on my planet to help defend:
    People go after fleets, and they have a fleet big enough to destroy your fleet, even if you think it is big enough to hold off anything. I know this because I attack fleets, even if the planet has 0 metal, 0 crystal, and 0 deuterium. If there is a fleet that would leave a good debris field, I attack it. Defense does not leave debris, so it is a better investment to ‘help defend’ your planet.

    To those who say “How do I fleetsave?”:
    There are many ways to fleetsave, but there are only a few ways to do an ‘invisible fleetsave’: one that cannot be detected by a sensor phalanx.

    1. Send your fleet from a moon to another moon. 2. Send your fleet from a moon to a Debris Field 3. Send your fleet on a ‘Deployment’ mission to another planet, and then recall it so it arrives home at the time you want it to. (This option is the BEST option for those who don’t have a moon)
    — Trevyr    Sep 29, 10:08 PM    #
  46. can fleets actually defend a planet or are they just targets?


    hi    Dec 14, 05:02 PM    #
  47. Fleets can be used as defense as well. In my opinion. i woundnt leave ur fleet on ur planet to help defend. unless ur sure that u will have very little or no losses to ur fleet


    — A Cruce Salus    Dec 29, 12:15 PM    #
  48. you can never be sure of that though. A guy in my universe had a monstrous fleet. (he was ranked about 25 in the universe) he got attacked by 225 death stars and lost about 1/3 of his fleet. remember, there is ALWAYS somebody who can crash your ships. They are never safe just sitting on the planet. (unless you have 225 RIPs with your fleet :P )


    — Trevyr    Jan 7, 05:08 PM    #
  49. lol the guy with 225 rips would fleet save by raiding a newb lmao all the newb can do as ship out what little he has and pray he never comes back lol

  50. what on earth is a RIP?

  52. Yeah, well. Fleet saving is so important. And you have to do it right!!! Plus, never do it at 1:00 AM in the morning. Otherwise you’ll send a fleet of over 150k ships from a PLANET!!! to a DF!... Trust me. Get two moons, fleetsave between them, and never try to fleetsave when your so tired you can barely think or even see! I made the top 10 HoFs, on the Defenders side. It was a noob mistake I will never make again. I am ashamed.

    1: Always Fleetsave
    2: Always Fleetsave Properly
    3: Never Fleetsave when your extremly tired
    4: Never Send a fleet from a Planet to DF.
    5: Always Send a Fleet from Moon to DF or Moon to Moon.
    6: Phlanax Blinds are okay, against players who don’t tend to take much time planning.

    Godspeed to all you people out there who have gotten “GLOTR Defender”
